Edgenexus’ Advanced Load Balancer for Azure Now Available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace
Microsoft Azure customers worldwide now gain access to Advanced Load Balancer to take advantage of the scalability, reliability, and agility of Azure to drive application development and shape business strategies.
Marlow, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom — June 15, 2020 — Edgenexus today announced the availability of its Advanced Load Balancer for Azure in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure.
Edgenexus customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
Advanced Load Balancer for Azure allows users to easily achieve security, traffic management, SSO/pre-authentication and load balancing. Its technology can be deployed in all stages of the journey into the cloud and provides a consistent unified application delivery layer: on-premises → hybrid → cloud.
On-premises solutions can be deployed as virtual appliances or physical devices to load-balance and protect applications such as Always On VPN, Exchange/SFB, and custom web applications.
In a hybrid situation, Advanced Load Balancer for Azure plays an important role in providing services such as GSLB (multi datacenter/cloud load balancing) as well as ensuring that critical services such as ADFS are always available.
With regards to the cloud, powerful tools such as the Layer 7 traffic management can seamlessly migrate workloads between multiple datacenters and clouds with zero downtime.
Once fully migrated, Edgenexus technology can provide advanced load balancing/ADC and application security in Azure. In addition, it can even run a microservices host.
“The growth of Azure has been phenomenal,” said Greg Howett, CEO, Edgenexus. “We are very pleased to be working with Microsoft and their partners to offer the tools needed to migrate any application into the cloud, both as an end result or as part of hybrid infrastructure.”
Our ADC load balancer offers the advanced features required in Azure that are not native as well as providing a unified application delivery approach encompassing hardware and software. This allows maximum flexibility and zero downtime when migrating workloads.
“Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure,” said Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “We’re happy to welcome the Advanced Load Balancer from Edgenexus to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”
The Azure Marketplace is an online market for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure. The Azure Marketplace helps connect companies seeking innovative, cloud-based solutions with partners who have developed solutions that are ready to use.
