Radware's ADC-VX Powers KPN's Data Center Hosting and Cloud Services With Advanced ADC Virtualization Capabilities

MAHWAH, New Jersey, February 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Solution Will Support KPN's Hosting, Private and Public Cloud Environments Using Clear Segmentation and Isolated Environments for Each of its Customers

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, today announced that KPN, the largest ICT service-provider in the Netherlands, has selected Radware's ADC-VX™, ADC consolidation and virtualization platform to support KPN's growing hosting and cloud data center services for business applications.

As it built a cloud-based solution for enterprise services, KPN wanted an application delivery controller (ADC) solution that would deliver isolated environments and dedicated resources for each customer to meet its customer service level agreements (SLA) along with the agility needed to provide cloud services in a changing environment.  With Radware's ADC-VX, KPN found a unique solution that allowed it to offer such an environment to each customer by assigning a private, dedicated virtual ADC instance per customer.

Using Radware's ADC-VX on its Alteon® 5412 application delivery switch, KPN is able to host 28 different customers on one platform with complete isolation between the customers.  This industry-leading density of virtual ADC instances on a single appliance enables the economics and the operational simplicity that a cloud provider requires.  Radware's ADC-VX solution will enable KPN to easily add more dedicated, isolated instances with each new customer, all without the need -- or cost -- for additional hardware.  

Additionally, the centralized management system of Radware ADC-VX and its dashboards provide a real-time view of the virtual ADC instances' health and resource utilization, resulting in a scalable solution that is simple to operate and manage that further reduces the operational costs involved in offering ADC services for cloud service providers.

"Providing KPN with a new ADC virtualization solution is a natural fit to its virtual and cloud data center design because it enables them to offer ADC services with a desired cost per customer thanks to our industry-leading density of virtual ADC instances on our devices," said Andre van Buiten, Sales Manager Netherlands, Radware.  "Moreover, the ADC-VX solution benefits from Radware's OnDemand strategy, which will allow KPN to host additional customers just by upgrading the software license on the ADC-VX devices and without a forklift upgrade of the hardware.  Enterprises of all sizes are increasingly looking for ways to leverage hosting and cloud services, and Radware's ability to meet this market need by offering a cost-effective, future-proof solution is a strength that truly sets us apart from the competition."  

Powered by Radware's OnDemand Switch® platform, Radware ADC-VX delivers performance superiority that ensures the best quality of experience possible for KPN customers including faster response times for hosted applications and network availability.

Radware's ADC-VX is a key component of Radware's Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure - (VADI™) strategy, which brings the efficiency and agility of virtualization to application delivery solutions.  VADI is an architecture that transforms computing resources as well as application delivery and virtualization services into one integrated, agile and scalable on-demand application delivery infrastructure.
