Deployments with AppCentric Templates

Deploying and configuring applications is time-consuming and stressful. Each deployment requires a different dashboard and workflow. Misconfiguration and errors are nearly unavoidable.

And once an app is deployed, you have to ensure it’s secure and working properly. Monitoring and troubleshooting add another wrinkle and even more stress.

There has to be a better way.

Introducing A10 AppCentric Templates

With A10 AppCentric Templates (ACT), we take the stress out of application deployment, monitoring and troubleshooting. AppCentric Templates makes it easy and frictionless to configure and launch applications correctly the first time.

AppCentric Templates is a GUI plug-in module for our Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS), comprising intelligent configuration and monitoring templates for applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business, SharePoint, A10 Networks SSLi (SSL Insight), Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) and more.

ACT Components

Each ACT is tailored to the specific application and includes components such as:

  • A wizard that guides a user through a step-by-step deployment process for quick and easy app deployments. The wizard embeds industry best practices relevant to the application and enables you to deploy applications in minutes instead of hours.
  • A configuration menu that enables configuration modifications and addition of advanced options without losing the application view for further refinement. The configuration menu empowers IT to focus on business needs and operate efficiently rather than dealing with multiple low level configuration items.
  • A troubleshooting menu that provides the ability to easily run system diagnostics and end-to-end traffic tests. If it finds a problem, it pinpoints where the problem is and identifies the cause.
  • A dashboard that delivers real-time traffic monitoring and analysis for visibility into applications. The dashboard comes out of the box with pre-defined tiles and charts to provide an optimized view of applications.
