Avi Networks Earns Computer Technology Review MVP Award for Uniquely Delivering Enterprise Applications to the Cloud

Avi Networks Cloud Application Delivery Platform Wins Most Valuable Product Award for Scale, Security and Cost Benefits of Its Hyperscale Approach to Application Delivery

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2015) - Avi Networks, the Cloud Application Delivery Company, today announced that Computer Technology Review (CTR) has named the recently announced Avi Networks Cloud Application Delivery Platform (CADP) as a 2015 Most Valuable Products Award winner for uniquely delivering the benefits of a hyper-scale approach to application delivery for any infrastructure, at any scale, for on-premise and cloud-based applications.

Founded in 1981, CTR is one of the most respected editorial authorities in the computer storage, networking and information technology industries. In fact, CTR was the first storage publication to have a Web presence. Today, the CTR website has a very loyal following and is one of the largest sites devoted to data storage and data management. The complete list of 2015 winners can be found at CTR at http://wwpi.com/mvp-award-winners/.

According to CTR, "Avi's fundamental design principle was to create compact, high performance, network services engines with a single point of control. The Cloud Application Delivery Platform is more or less the software-defined networking (SDN) concept applied to application delivery, rather than the network as a whole. The basic framework is provided by the Hyperscale Distributed Resources Architecture, or HYDRA. It allows users to manage core application development services like load balancing and SSL termination, as well as extensive analytics information from a single system. In terms of pricing, Avi offers both a bandwidth-based model and a 'price by application scale/instance' scheme."

As applications move to cloud-based infrastructure and mobile becomes the dominant endpoint, it has become increasingly difficult for the enterprise IT teams to guarantee end-user application experience using legacy load-balancers and application delivery controllers (ADC). The Avi Networks CADP is a next-gen, software-defined ADC that brings the benefits of hyperscale application delivery, security and analytics to enterprises and cloud service providers. With a unique analytics-driven and distributed application delivery architecture, the Avi Networks solution guarantees end-user application experience for on-premise and cloud-based applications.

"We only recently launched the Avi Networks CADP, and it's validating to receive CTR's highest award in the Cloud Awards Category," said Dhritiman Dasgupta, Avi Networks VP of Marketing. "We designed the Cloud Application Delivery Platform to combine application analytics and real-time user metrics with application delivery for an intelligent, integrated solution that can improve end-user experience and application performance, while dramatically cutting costs. Today, our customers are getting the benefits of hyperscale cloud environments that were once the exclusive domain of software giants such as Facebook, Google and Amazon."

Based on SDN principles, Avi Networks separates the data plane from the control plane -- an industry first for ADCs and load balancers. The data plane resources can be elastically scaled across on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud computing platforms and co-located with the applications they serve, eliminating network design or planning challenges and enabling scalable network services. The control plane is centralized and capable of dynamic service creation, giving customers a single point of integration, automation, and programmability to ease management and create a single, infinitely scalable application-delivery platform. The Avi Networks CADP integrates seamlessly with customers' VMware, Openstack and Cisco's ACI fabric environments.
