vThunder Virtualized Appliances
Gain flexible, easy-to-deploy and on-demand software-based appliances featuring advanced services for enterprises, Web giants or service providers. The virtualized version of the Thunder series of appliances, vThunder runs atop your choice of industry-leading hypervisors for maximum flexibility.
vThunder virtual appliances are available on AWS and Azure, with standard or pay-as-you-go licenses for DDoS protection, application delivery controllers (ADC) and carrier-grade networking (CGN) gateways.
How it benefits your business
Reduce CAPEX & OPEX
Decrease capital expenditure and reduce operational costs by deploying multiple vThunder virtual machines, with your independent applications, on the same server hardware.
Combine multiple, independently configured partitions, including ADC and CGN license types, into one vThunder software instance via ADP multi-tenancy.
Leverage software images to immediately deploy to virtualized infrastructure for the fastest deployment-to-operation time. No hardware shipments required.
Implement virtual L4-L7 application delivery controller (ADC) services, including security and server-load balancing, via vThunder ADC.
IPv4 & IPv6
Gain virtual IPv4 address-scaling and transition to IPv6 topologies with carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) on vThunder CGN.
Access all functions
Use all virtual ADC or CGN features out of the box without additional license requirements or upgrades.
Virtual ADC and CGN appliances are licensed by bandwidth up to 20 Gbps on commodity hardware, or up to 160 Gbps by clustering instances together with aVCS.
Implement high-density, multi-tenancy architecture for better flexibility in demanding environments, including cloud/IaaS vendors and service providers.
Automatically assign resources and adjust configurations to meet capacity demands, as needed, via repeatable deployment templates.
Leverage aXAPI®, A10’s REST-based API, to integrate with hypervisor management tools for smarter day-to-day automation.
Mitigate DDoS attacks up to 5 Gbps on Vmware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors.
