Client & Case Study

UCLA

Client case study description

UCLA is known worldwide for the breadth and quality of its academic, research, healthcare, cultural, continuing education and athletics programs. The IT Infrastructure Services (IS) unit focuses on the provisioning and management of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), and reliable mainframe and data center operations.

UCLA needed a new solution using advanced ADC features such as next-generation load balancing, security such as Web Application Firewall (WAF), Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) for a Disaster Recovery initiative, and other robust features that would make migration off the existing system as easy as possible while improving security. A committee at UCLA evaluated vendors and narrowed down the possibilities. The A10 Networks® Thunder® ADC solution was chosen primarily for performance, price and a robust feature set.
