    Ashish Shah
    While virtual appliances for load balancing, long thought of as the answer for software-driven infrastructure, have existed since the advent of virtualization, they inherit most of the architectural challenges of legacy solutions, including limited scalability, lack of central management and orchestration, and performance limitations. Instead, what is needed is an application delivery architecture based on software-defined principles that logically separates the control plane from the data plane delivering the application services.

    Join us for this 30 minute webinar with Q&A to learn how to overcome the challenges of using virtual load balancers.
  • Using Container Networking for Microservices Applications: A Red Hat Use Case Recorded: Apr 11 2017 49 mins
    Ranga Rajagopalan, CTO, Avi Networks and Satish Kale, Solution Architect, Red Hat
    Production-ready applications implemented on OpenShift need networking services such as load balancing within and across clusters, service discovery, application performance monitoring, security, and visibility to service dependencies. Hardware or virtual appliance-based load balancers are not built to handle the dynamic and distributed nature of microservices applications, while lightweight proxies don't have the analytics, scale, security, nor enterprise class load balancing features that enterprises expect for production deployments.

    Join Avi Networks and Red Hat for this informative session on important OpenShift and container networking concepts and how you can create robust microservices applications.

    You will learn:

    - How to setup ready-to-use local and global load balancing services
    - Perform service discovery to map service domain names to virtual IPs
    - How to visualize microservices with dependency graphs
    - Deliver monitoring, analytics, and security services

    Learn how next-generation load balancers:
    • Provide truly elastic scale – scaling up or scaling down
    • Deliver multi-cloud capabilities
    • Lower your total cost of ownership
  • Migrate from F5 to Avi Networks - Go from rigid hardware to elastic software Recorded: Feb 2 2017 56 mins
    Nathan McMahon
    Does the following IT conversation look familiar?
    Application Owner: “It takes the network guys too long to provision load balancing services”
    Network Team: “Yes, but it is because our hardware load balancers are so inflexible”
    CIO: “I am tired of spending hundreds of thousands every few years and it doesn’t even help our future plans”

    If that sounds familiar, this webinar is for you. Enterprises seeking elastic application services are choosing an elastic software-defined approach to load balancing. Learn how large multinational enterprises have solved their application delivery challenges by migrating from F5 BIG-IP and Viprion hardware appliances to Elastic Application Service Fabric.

    Nathan McMahon from the Avi Networks solution architecture team will present the best practices for migrating from F5 appliances to the Avi Vantage Platform. You will learn how to convert your current configurations and iRules to a simple API-driven software platform that:

    • Reduces your TCO by more 70%

  • 7 considerations before you refresh your F5 or Citrix NetScaler load balancers Recorded: Dec 15 2016 56 mins
    Chandra Sekar
    Traditional ADCs force organizations into proprietary and expensive hardware-based appliances even as application needs are evolving and to improve SLAs to internal customers. This not only increases TCO but also does not provide a uniform architecture for on-premises and cloud deployments. Before you commit to an expensive multi-year license and maintenance contract, it is important to consider key questions and what they will mean for the future of application services in your enterprise.

    • Can I provision VIPs in minutes in any data center, private, or public cloud?
    • Can I scale my load balancers and my backend application servers on-demand?
    • How can I get real-time insights and visibility into application traffic?

    Register for this webinar to see other critical considerations and how next-gen ADC architectures can address these challenges head on. In just 30 minutes, you will learn how a software-defined load balancing architecture can play an expanded role in delivering and scaling your applications across clouds, providing performance insights, and automating application services - all at great cost savings.
