EADP

(Edgenexus Application Delivery Platform)

Fast, Scalable and Secure Applications

Edge ADP is the world's first generation 4 load balancer.

The Edgenexus ADP Application Delivery Platform is the natural evolution of the ADC (Application Delivery Controller) that is in turn the evolution of the humble load balancer. It is also the only most advanced Edge computing platform available.

Last decade's Load Balancers are today's Application Delivery Platform. Time to get up to date

We are now operating in a fast moving agile world - We need agility to adapt to change. We need an ADP

Ok, Enough Acronyms what actually is it?

  • The Edgeneus ADP is a platform that provides all the services and functionality that you need to deliver fast, scalable and secure applications both now and into the future.

  • Its is not really an evolution of the load balancer but a step change in generation and its role in the application network

  • It can be deployed almost anywhere, in practically any format, and offers not just the key functionality we need now such as Advance load balancing, security, Application firewall, Global DNS, Cloud migrations etc but a platform to deliver new services.

  • By deploying new apps and services directly onto the platform, the role and functionality can change as your business requirements change thus ensuring your solution is future proof.

New Applications come from 3 places:

Us

We are adding new products and feature all the time such as VPN, Advanced DNS and SDN.

You

You can easily develop your own apps using the forge. As long as it can run on a linux platform it can run on our ADP as a micro services container.

Others

We are working with a number of vendors to offer their leading edge technology on our platform. We don't have all the answers but i bet our ecosystem partners do!!

How do you get them?

Simply upload them to the device using our encrypted SmartFiles or go to the app store, select download and deploy as you would with your Iphone or Android devices.

We don't know what Application delivery and security challenges we will face in the next 3-5 years but we do know we will need to be agile and adapt quickly as the time between a security floor discovery and attack is reducing all the time. Edge ADC gives you the tools required to meet these challenges. Edgenxus is revolutionising the way Networking and security applications are being deployed and consumed. We make no direct comparison to the way that app stores redefine how the mobile phone is used but we would like to 😉

What service and apps will this support in the future

No crystal ball here

HOW

Ok so how does it ACTUALLY work - What's under the hood- No smoke and mirrors plese… Well they say that there is rarely anything new in IT and maybe this is the case. At its heart the ADP is an elegant integration of a number of technologies. So here is our stack.

Advanced ADC

Provides networking, traffic management, and of course load balancing. Its also takes care of the internal High speed networking.

Containerisation Stack

We current use Docker, Provide some abstraction and additional security between that applications and the host platform ie the ADP

Appstore

This is where you can find new applications to deploy on your ADC. You can also download new traffic management rules and platform updates. Even purchase and deploy internet integrated services.

The Forge

This is where you can create your own Apps - As long as it can run on Linux it can probably run on the ADP.

Smartfiles

This is how we securely deliver apps. Smart files are encrypted files that contain the app and other data such as the vendor,version, logo etc. Smartfile are encrypted on the platform.

CSM: Cloud service manager.

This allows the ADP to integrate and deploy external cloud based services from CDN to Multi cloud device management.

Full REST API

The Glue thats Connects the Platform to the components

Hummingbird advanced GUI

Ease of use is engineered into and across the platform as a first principle. This assures all these tools translate into business, technical and commercial agility.

What does it look like and how do I deploy it?

  • Virtual - Support on all the main Hypervisors such as VMware, Hyper-v, KVM, Acropolis.

  • Cloud - Available in all the main clouds such as Azure, AWS and Google.

  • Hardware Appliance - Available in a range of options in conjunction with our OEM partner HPE who can provide unmatched support for these critical applications.

What next?

  • Download it and give it a go - Chat to some technical sales.

  • Make tea or coffee and try and work out what IT issue you will have in 5 years time (then tell us please)

What about Edge computing?

In fact, what is this Edge computing people keep talking about.

  • Well, whilst there is not an exact definition we basically are describing the need to Push applications and application processing further towards the edge of a network. This can increase response times by reducing latency and WAN bandwidth requirements.

  • In some ways it's the opposite to the trend of cloud computing where we try to bring services from the edge to the central or distributed cloud.

  • The ADP is true edge computing software as it can run on almost any platform including hardware and software and provide a uniform interface and feature set. Applications and be pushed to the ADP at the edge, networking can be reconfigured and this can be fully automated via REST for large scale deployments.
  • Companies such as HPE are applying a heavy focus on Edge but the software still somewhat lacking functionality the EADP has.
