Radware unveils new vAdapter tool for virtual data centres

Integrates with AppDirector and VirtualDirector products

By CBR Staff Writer

Radware said that it has built vAdapter on the VMware platform, which it claims to ensure real-time, automatic synchronisation of the application delivery controller (ADC) configuration with any relevant changes in the virtual environment.

According to Radware, the newest addition to its application delivery suite, integrates with its AppDirector and VirtualDirector products as well as with the Alteon Application Switch. vAdapter enables companies to prevent configuration errors and reduce operating costs and IT administrators to use the service to map between virtual machines (VMs) that define a service in the virtual environment and its corresponding configuration from the ADC viewpoint. It automatically configures the ADC when VM is added or removed from the virtual service cluster.

The company claims that ADC customers can reduce operating expenses by installing vAdapter into VMware environments, due to reducing coordination between the network and server team, which eliminates the need for frequent manual configuration updates.

In addition, vAdapter lowers the risk involved with application deployment due to its automation capabilities. All configuration changes-whether automatic or manually confirmed are also logged, providing a audit trail for compliance and change control purposes.

vAdapter can be deployed as an open virtual machine format (OVF) virtual appliance designed for VMware environments offering integration with VMware APIs. It is provided as a plug-in to VMware vCentre Server or as a standalone web-based management tool, and does not require additional installation.

Nir Ilani, product marketing director application delivery at Radware, said:Being able to leverage the VMware platform helped us create a product that eliminates the concerns associated with configuration changes in the data centre, and adds to our notable track record of delivering business-smart solutions that help customers maximise the value of their investments in virtualisation.
