Continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) encompasses all the activities that ensures the real-time deployment of code into production. The practice of continuous deployment delivers significant advantages across the organization. For the CEO, CD means the ability to respond to new business opportunities. For the CTO, it’s about better service efficiency. For the line manager, CD provides better schedule visibility. For the DevOps team, it’s about sharing tools and processes. For the application developer, it speeds time to production with higher quality.

Organizations are increasingly using SSL encryption, as they look to prevent costly cyberattacks and maintain compliance with relevant regulations, to protect the privacy and integrity of their sensitive data in transit.
This solution brief outlines the challenges organizations face trying to detect and prevent Web-based threats.
Increasing traffic and the profusion of applications sharply increase the associated costs and complexity of application delivery. The benefits of server virtualization solutions from vendors such as VMware, Citrix, KVM and others can be greatly increased when deployed together with A10's AX Series ADCs. Joint solutions from A10 and these other virtualization vendors can reduce hardware costs and improve the end-user experience, all while providing a highly adaptable infrastructure that can accommodate unforeseen spikes in network or application load...
Authentication is a critical requirement for online communications. It is imperative that both clients and their target recipients verify their respective identities. With more and more remote transactions from e-commerce based electronic funds transfers to remote healthcare diagnostics to inter-governmental diplomatic communiques taking place over the public Internet, the parties involved must be validated. In turn, the deluge of so many sessions can overwhelm network and security infrastructures. Systems must be established that guarantee authenticity, ensure an excellent end user experience and scale to meet the accelerating demands of heightened data center security.
Ever increasing traffic demands have resulted in the proliferation of Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) and advanced server load balancers; this highlights the need for more efficient deployment options. A10's Application Delivery Partitions (ADPs) are a proven virtualization solution within its AX Series ADCs, fulfilling the key requirements of high density and high performance. The ADP virtualization technology provides separation and partitioning of multiple ADCs on a single AX Series platform, helping organizations to dramatically reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) without sacrificing performance or ease of use...

Server availability to fulfill requests and responsiveness to clients are essential for computing transactions, especially for Web-based transactions. Outages are not tolerated and 99.999% uptime expectations are now normal...
Today, service providers such as cloud providers, Web hosting services, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as well as large enterprises, require an environment that is highly available and secure, as the Internet is the main, if not the only way to channel an organization's services to its customers. Over the last few years, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have grown dramatically in frequency, size and complexity. While organizations have existing security strategies in place that mitigate a range of existing security threats, they are clearly not prepared to address this new breed of DDoS attacks, which leverage large distributed "botnet" networks of compromised "zombie" machines to simultaneously launch attacks using compliant protocols that are very difficult to detect and even harder to mitigate. It is clear that additional solutions are needed to complement existing security infrastructure in a layered defense model...

Unprecedented growth in mobile devices and subscribers in the recent years has caused service providers to make significant investments in infrastructure to support rapid data traffic growth and offer new services. This has contributed to the exhaustion of the IPv4 address space and the depletion of IPv4 addresses is a now a reality. On February 3, 2011, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated the last five remaining "/8"s of IPv4 address space to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). As of April 2014, ARINs (American Registry for Internet Numbers) countdown plan has moved to the final phase and ARIN may not be able to fulfill new IPv4 allocation requests. On the other hand, digital content and Internet traffic is growing exponentially and the emerging trend of the Internet of Things is causing the number of connected devices to cross 20 billion by the end of this decade, increasing the demand for even more IP addresses. In order to sustain the current business and prepare for long-term growth, migrating to IPv6 has become inevitable for service providers...
