Healthcare IT Solutions
"The cost for 80 Gb of throughput was less than that of 24 Gb from another vendor, and we got 4 boxes instead of two, allowing us to provide a multi-site clustered solution that we frankly could not afford from the competing vendors. A10's port density alone allows us to remove DMZ switches, as we can provide load-balanced DMZ connectivity with some of the 1 Gb Ports on the AX 3200s at each production site. This saves us an additional four switches."

Helping Health IT Thrive
Challenges in Health IT
New technologies and the move to electronic health records (EHR) are changing the face of health IT. Application availability and user experience are more important than ever, but EHR and medical applications place huge demands on servers while introducing new security requirements. Regulatory compliance poses an ongoing challenge. Often, healthcare organizations operate from dispersed sites, with multiple data centers.
A10 Application Delivery Controller (ADC) Solutions for Healthcare
A10 Thunder™ ADCs deliver an array of features to address the challenges unique to healthcare. These appliances optimize applications to boost application response times, ensure server availability, increase application security, and improve overall performance and security.
Ensuring uptime and business continuity: Thunder ADCs deliver a wealth of server load-balancing capabilities for redundancy and optimal server efficiency. Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) supports disaster recovery to keep traffic moving in organizations with distributed data centers. And A10 virtualization technologies meet high-availability demands.
Enforcing security and privacy: Thunder ADCs meet the challenges of regulatory compliance and security with a suite of features that include SSL Insight, Data Leakage Prevention (DLP), and Application Access Management (AAM) technology. Web Application Firewall (WAF) technology protects applications from Internet threats, and A10’s aFleX® deep packet inspection (DPI) helps prevent zero-day attacks. Thunder ADCs also provide multiple vectors of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection.
Delivering high performance: Thunder ADCs come loaded with application acceleration features to help healthcare infrastructure run at peak efficiency, particularly as applications move to the Internet. TCP optimization features free backend servers from CPU-intensive tasks, boosting user experience. Caching features speed content delivery, while HTTP compression and SSL Offload also improve performance and applications availability.
Flexible, scalable architecture: A10 ADCs deliver features and form factors designed to help healthcare organizations scale. A10’s virtual ADC product, vThunder™, can be quickly deployed on any industry standard server. The Thunder HVA hybrid virtual appliance supports high-density vThunder configurations. And A10’s Application Delivery Partitions (ADPs) provide a powerful multitenancy solution for application networking.
Protect your network and power-up your business with A10
With A10 Thunder ADCs, healthcare organizations get what they need from their networks: security from the inside out, highly available resources, and application acceleration that makes the most of your backend servers—all in a flexible, scalable form factor to meet diverse and changing needs.
