Overview: Twice the Performance at Half the Price Revolutionary New Architecture Innovative, Advanced Features All Features Included The AX Series Advanced Traffic Manager family from A10 Networks is designed to meet the growing demands of Web sites, carriers and enterprises. The AX offers intelligent Layer 4-7 application processing capabilities with industry-leading performance and scalability to meet critical business requirements at competitive prices.
The AX Series' unique Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) offers true scalable performance. With rich Layer 7 features and its aFleX scripting language, the AX Series integrates into any data center to enable advanced Web application delivery solutions. The AX also includes the most comprehensive set of IPv6 and Network Address Translation (NAT) features of any server load balancer on the market today.
AX's advanced server load balancing and flexible health monitoring capabilities ensure application availability and reliability. With the AX Series' standard redundant components and high availability design, organizations ensure non-stop service availability for all types of applications. With the AX Series' line rate security defenses and secure email features, organizations can now deploy data center wide protection against network-level attacks to ensure business continuity for critical services.
AX Series Solutions The AX Series is a high-performance, scalable platform and the technology leader in three key addressable markets. The first is our core market for Advanced Application Delivery Controllers and new generation server load balancer functionality. The second is IPv6 migration, which is an early stage market with signifi cant growth potential. The third is Cloud Computing and Virtualization whereby Virtualization is at the Center of Cloud Computing and the AX Series delivers the widest range of options.
Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) The AX Series integrates modern multi-core, multi-threaded OS technologies (ACOS) with A10's Flexible Traffic ASIC, switching/routing ASIC and SSL Acceleration ASIC to provide performance advantages. Leveraging Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) technologies used in super-computing, the AX uses a decoupled multi-CPU architecture with simultaneous high-speed memory access to process application traffic in true parallel fashion, without the need to copy data or replicate computing instructions.
ACOS, standard in all AX models, provides true linear scalability of Layer 4-7 application features – for acceleration, availability, and security. The AX Series includes secure email services, Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB), comprehensive firewall load balancing, video/voice acceleration, IPv4 and IPv6 traffic management, and SSL and non- SSL server load balancing.
The AX 1000, part of A10 Networks’ award-winning AX Series Advanced Traffic Manager family, is designed to meet the growing demands of Web Application Delivery. The AX 1000 is an entrylevel 1U appliance that delivers advanced features at an affordable and competitive price. It offers intelligent application processing capabilities with industry-leading performance and scalability to meet critical business requirements in an energy-saving “green” form factor. The AX 1000 includes A10’s Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS), which integrates modern multi-core, multi-threaded software to provide performance advantages. Leveraging Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) technologies, the AX 1000 processes application traffic in parallel fashion, without the need to copy data or replicate computing instructions. As a result, applications run faster with AX 1000 than competing systems on the market today
