SAN JOSE, Calif., May 1 — A10 Networks, Inc., the technology leader in Application Networking, today announced its new A10 Thunder Series platforms, which are hardware and software Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) that provide Unified Application Service Gateway functionality by consolidating premium solution modules for intelligent Cloud services in the most efficient form factors. Built on A10's scalable and flexible Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) architecture, the new Thunder Series models consolidate stand-alone solutions encompassing ADCs and Server Load Balancers; and features such as Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT), IPv6 Migration, DNS Application Firewall, Web Application Firewall (WAF), SSL Intercept, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, Application Access Management (AAM), and more, without license fees.
"A10 Thunder Series continues our innovation by leveraging ACOS for the industry's most scalable Cloud services in the most compact and flexible platforms," said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "A10 Thunder delivers a competitive advantage for customers with advanced service modules designed to run in a single platform that would previously require multiple vendor solutions and licenses."
By 2015, it is forecasted that 15 billion devices will be connected via the Cloud and the global Cloud Computing market will grow from $40.7 billion in 2011 to $241 billion in 2020. To accommodate this growth, high performance multi-function solutions in compact hardware and virtual appliance form factors are required to reduce data center equipment sprawl, cost and complexity. A10 Thunder Series platforms deliver innovations in hardware and software to make Cloud applications faster, more flexible and more secure with intelligent services convergence.
This first A10 Thunder Series release includes three high-end Unified Application Service Gateway (UASG) models, designed for the most demanding carrier, Web Giant and enterprise applications, high density deployments and multi-vendor datacenter consolidation. The new A10 Thunder Series models deliver performance, scalability and advanced premium features that rival 7 rack unit (RU) chassis systems —in a 1 RU appliance— to deliver overall data center efficiency.

A10 Thunder 5430S UASG:
A10 Thunder 6430, 6430S and 5430S's optimized design delivers the following benefits that lead the industry for intelligent Cloud services:
vThunder Virtual UASG
In addition, the vThunder platform is a software ADC delivering the same advanced feature set, deployed atop commodity hardware while running on a choice of hypervisors from VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM and Xen (Citrix or open source versions). vThunder starts at 200 Mbps for the entry-level/lab edition and runs up to 8 Gbps for the high-performance edition.
A10 Thunder 6430, 6430S and 5430S include large-scale Virtualization, with support for up to 1024 Application Delivery Partitions (ADPs) on a single platform for high-speed hardware multi-tenancy. Additionally, vThunder supports ADPs in each virtual appliance. Each partition can run multiple applications or services on demand, further reducing deployment time and cost. With an aVCS configuration, the A10 Thunder Series hardware and software appliances can increase capacity up to 8x with a single point of management.
"With its new Thunder Series, A10 has once again upped the ante on Application Networking market innovation by delivering tremendous power and advanced features in compact form factors that rival the largest chassis," said Pat Trolan , Principal at Efficient Technology Solutions. "Our customers have been very pleased with the products from A10. It's also an easy company to do business with. We think our customers will benefit even more from A10 Thunder Series' efficient design, which delivers savings on cost, space, power and overall management."
