How to deploy Stingray Traffic Manager in an AWS VPC

Traditional ADCs are inflexible compared to today’s cloud environments

Delivering application performance for websites, portals, and cloud applications has traditionally been the job of hardware ADCs. However, these hardware applications lack the dynamic flexibility that is required in the new generation of virtual cloud environments. Today’s users expect great performance from websites, and customers can be lost if application delivery quality is compromised.

The static nature of the traditional ADC also makes it difficult to scale according to business needs, which results in inadequate user experience, low reliability and high costs for the application owner.

 In a recent survey looking into top concerns for deploying apps on IaaS clouds, reliability ranked highest with 90% of respondents rating it somewhat or extremely important.

“Customers now have an easy way to learn about Riverbed’s SteelApp Traffic Manager, deploy with 1-click, and start using the software within minutes. Billing and payments are all handled by AWS, and customers get to take advantage of AWS’s reliable, scalable, and pay-as-you-go nature." - Terry Hanold, Vice President of New Business Initiatives, Amazon Web Services.

A Layer 7 ADC like SteelApp Traffic Manager allows for application level operations and optimizations. It can make decisions based on the application, the user, a given page, a particular kind of response, and much more. It can even change the behavior of the application if necessary. With deep application level intelligence, ADCs can protect advanced threats to security, including SQL injection attacks, cross-side scripting (XSS) attacks, and denial-of-service threats.

Software ADCs do more than boost efficiency: they go further to ensure that users have a fast, reliable experience. They tap into the application content and, through automated web content optimization (WCO), deliver it fast and consistently every time. This allows ADCs to give users a better experience by reacting to browser platform, user requirements, and even user location and other characteristics.
