Big Switch and A10 Link SDN Fabric and ADC

Big Switch Networks and A10 Networks are collaborating on application-aware solutions for data centers, enabling the A10 ADC Application Delivery Controllers to be deployed with Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric (BCF).

The joint solution leverages Big Switch's SDN-powered Big Cloud Fabric with the A10 Thunder ADC to achieve operational simplicity, resilience, and agility for large-scale applications.

In addition, the A10 Networks Thunder TPS Threat Protection System can be leveraged with Big Tap Monitoring Fabric for efficient and scalable Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack detection across the entire data center.

“We worked closely with A10 to seamlessly integrate with their Thunder Application Delivery Controller and Thunder Threat Protection System,” said Prashant Gandhi, VP Product Management and Strategy at Big Switch.

“The combined solution of the A10 Thunder ADC and Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric provides the agility and scalability needed to meet the demanding needs of today’s applications, cost-effectively,” said Paul Nicholson, Director of Product Marketing at A10 Networks. “We’ve optimized the solution to enable quick deployment of new applications and manage existing applications. We are delivering automated and scalable infrastructure, consistent on-demand services in a shared, multi-tenant environment.”
