Product Description

Server Load Balancing
APV Series application delivery controllers ensure 99.999% uptime for applications and services. Leveraging robust distribution algorithms, health check mechanisms, clustering and failover capabilities, APV Series appliances maintain connections, ensure persistence, direct traffic away from failed servers and intelligently distribute application services across multiple servers for optimized performance and availability.

Layer-7 Policy Engine
Customized traffic management is often a trade-off between performance, control and ease-of-use. Unlike ADCs that rely on complex, computeintensive scripting to enable custom Layer-7 policies, Array supports a vast library of policies that are hard-coded at the kernel level, are configurable with point-and-click simplicity via the WebUI or CLI, and can be combined and nested to create advanced customized application traffic management. With Array's unique approach to Layer-7 traffic management, customers get the best of all worlds: ease-of-use, granular control and superior performance and scalability.

2048-Bit SSL Acceleration
SSL acceleration reduces the number of servers required for secure applications, improves server efficiency and dramatically improves application performance.

Offloading compute-intensive key exchange and bulk encryption, and delivering industry-leading client-certificate performance, SSL acceleration is ideal for scaling secure SaaS services, e-commerce environments and business-critical applications requiring high-volume secure connectivity.

Although more secure than the old 1024-bit standard, 2048-bit keys are five times more compute intensive and can impact both performance and the cost of supporting applications. Array 2048 and 4096-bit SSL encryption offers unbeatable scalability and performance with the lowest-cost per SSL TPS to offset transition costs and improve security without impacting performance.

WebWall Web Application Security
With WebWall™, Array's suite of Web application security capabilities, APV Series application delivery controllers can protect against denial of service (DoS) and malformed URL attacks and allow a wide range of Layer 2 through Layer 7 protective policies to be stacked atop one another for increased security.

APV appliances are security-hardened to protect applications and servers from L4 and L7 DDoS attacks and support content filtering to guard against Syn-flood, tear drop, ping-of-death, Nimda, Smurf and other malicious attacks. APV appliances also feature extensive access control lists, network address translation and stateful packet flow inspection – all executed at the kernel level – to guard against attacks and unauthorized access without impacting performance or scalability.

In addition, integrated Web application firewall capabilities provide deep application data inspection – beyond IP and TCP headers – to deal with attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting. Deployable in front of multiple Web or application servers, Array's Web application firewall detects and responds to signatures for known application vulnerabilities and is programmable to deal with future threats.

Link Load Balancing & GSLB
Link load balancing (LLB) and global server load balancing (GSLB) ensure 99.999% availability for wide area network (WAN) connections and geographically dispersed sites. Link load balancing with end-to-end health monitoring and dynamic routing detects outages and monitors performance in real time to distribute traffic across multiple WAN connections for a premium, always-on end-user experience. Ideal for geographically distributed applications and multi-site architectures, global server load balancing directs traffic away from failed data centers and intelligently distributes services between sites based on proximity, language, capacity, load and response times for maximum performance and availability.

Application Acceleration
APV Series appliances leverage multiple acceleration technologies and optimizations to deliver a premium end-user experience for a wide range of applications and data services. Inmemory caching increases server efficiency and improves seek and response times by over 500%, hardware and software compression can reduce bandwidth utilization and end-user response times by more than half and TCP connection multiplexing aggregates millions of short-lived client connections into persistent fast lanes that increase server efficiency by up to 70% while improving application performance.

ePolicy L7 Application Scripting
Where Array's Layer-7 policy engine cannot meet application traffic management requirements, ePolicy scripting allows transactions and content to be manipulated to achieve traffic distribution that improves data center efficiency and mitigates the effect of delivering applications over the Internet.

eRoute L4 Routing
Using eRoute, inbound and outbound WAN traffic may be load balanced across multiple ISP links based on preset and user-defined algorithms and directed across routes optimized for maximum stability and performance. Additional L4 traffic management features include VLANs, port forwarding, port and link redundancy and the ability to bundle multiple low-cost links to improve bandwidth utilization and reduce costs.

Application-Specific Certifications
In conjunction with ISVs and application developer partners, Array APV Series appliances have been certified to provide load balancing, acceleration and security for enterprise applications such as Microsoft Lync 2010 and 2013, Microsoft Exchange 2010 and 2013, SAP, Oracle, eClinicalWorks and others. Leveraging deployment guides, businesses can take the guesswork out of application delivery. Following simple step by step instructions, IT can rapidly and confidently configure APV appliances for optimized delivery of business critical applications.

Traffic Shaping & QoS
Traffic shaping optimizes application traffic on WAN links to improve bandwidth utilization and end-user response times. Supporting user-defined policies, APV Series appliances prevent bandwidth-intensive applications from over-utilizing WAN links and ensure essential applications are prioritized to meet service level agreements. Used in conjunction with link load balancing, global server load balancing and QoS features such as filters and CBQs, traffic shaping can dramatically improve application performance.

IPv6 Support
For organizations needing an IPv6 Web presence, server load balancing protocol translation (SLBPT) transforms existing IPv4 Web sites into IPv6 compatible sites and greatly reduces the need for duplicate equipment, content and management. Where there is a need to make the most of depleted IPv4 resources, NAT and dual NAT (dual-stack IPv6) allow multiple clients to utilize a single IPv4 address. In migration environments, Array IPv6 solutions support both NAT64 and DNS64 to enable IPv6 clients to connect with IPv4 servers and content. To ensure a consistent application experience across IPv4 and IPv6 clients and networks – and to enable fully-capable, next-generation solutions – IPv6 feature parity is supported for all Array APV Series application delivery controllers.

Management & Integration
APV Series application delivery controllers are simple to install and offer intuitive configuration and management via a WebUI and a familiar command line interface. Using the administration tool kit, network managers can view the status for a wide range of system parameters, enable services on the fly and automate configuration using XML-RPC. Leveraging extensible APIs, application and network intelligence can be integrated with third-party monitoring and management or exported for optimizing complementary data center systems. In addition, APV Series appliances support VMware vCenter integration for intelligent command and control of virtualized application infrastructure.

eCloud APIs & OpenStack Integration
To meet the deployment and management requirements of load balancing and application delivery in the cloud, Array's eCloud API provides a script-level interface for cloud management systems to manage and monitor Array devices and assist in interactions between cloud operating systems and virtual machines running Array load balancing. For cloud providers and enterprises leveraging the OpenStack architecture for cloud management and automation, Array's integration with OpenStack load balancing-as-a-service (LBaaS) creates a standardized means to rapidly integrate with and control Array technology.

Product Editions
APV Series hardware appliances support two app delivery product editions. AppVelocity supports a rich server load balancing and application acceleration feature set optimized for local traffic management. AppVelocity-S combines high-performance SSL acceleration with server load balancing and application acceleration to create a traffic management solution ideal for ecommerce environments and applications requiring a high-degree of Secure connectivity. Both AppVelocity and AppVelocity-S product editions include link load balancing and support global server load balancing as an option. vAPV virtual appliances bundle all Array load balancing and application delivery features and support GSLB as an option.
