A10 Networks launches Virtual DDoS Defence Solution
Protects 5G and cloud infrastructures, and enables service providers to build and operate elastic DDoS defences with 100 Gbps in a single virtual appliance
A10 Networks has delivered the industry’s highest-performance virtual DDoS defence solution with its software version of the Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) solution, vThunder TPS. The enhanced vThunder TPS provides 100 Gbps throughput in a single virtual appliance and can be expanded to 800 Gbps with eight-way clustering. As a result, service providers can build elastic DDoS defences that can be incrementally scaled during wartime when peak capacity is required.
vThunder TPS is compact and efficient, allowing it to be deployed in next-generation mobile edge compute (MEC) environments, conserving space and power while providing powerful DDoS protection. vThunder TPS provides operators a cost-efficient way to protect their networks and infrastructures without over-provisioning DDoS defense capacity. vThunder TPS provides customers cloud-ready DDoS defense.
Customers are able to gain deployment and operational flexibility with DDoS defenses that support major private cloud platforms including KVM, VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V. A high-performance 100 Gbps virtual appliance can scale to 800 Gbps with eight-way clustering to meet the performance needs of 5G mobile operators and cloud providers.
It also offers agility and scalability. With A10 Networks’ FlexPool licensing, capacity can be scaled up in hours via license allocation rather than in weeks or months required for hardware purchasing, delivery and installation. Capacity can be scaled back down by reallocating licenses to other points of presence when intermittent demand subsides.
A10’s subscription price model also provides lower start-up and upgrade costs. The solution also provides comprehensive protection. When combined with the Orion 5G Security Suite, vThunder TPS provides high-performance DDoS detection and mitigation and protection against other threats across mobile and cloud network infrastructures.
vThunder TPS is available now. vThunder TPS with 100 Gbps performance is available in March 2020.
