The Problem With SDNThe reality is that SDN is not designed for Layers 4-7 and SDN's focus on Layers 2-3 - and specifically SDN's packet-processing focus - has long been shown to be inadequate for managing application traffic at Layer 4 and above. - F5 Networks
Enables applications deployed in the enterprise, in clouds and in hybrid clouds to be scaled significantly beyond present capabilities.
Supports scaling to hundreds or even thousands of concurrent users in the underlying application.
Includes significant SDN functionality, including instantiation of virtualized software routers.
Rapid deployment using existing infrastructure and minimal-to-zero incremental CapEx.
Can be integrated into switching products.
Encompasses trong support for syndicated data Is application, platform- and data-agnostic
Is application, platform- and data-agnostic.
Is topology- and security-aware.
Achieves efficiencies for applications that exceed gains of an order of magnitude by creating session-based virtual networks that extend from the cloud through to the end-user machines, all at Layers 5-7 of the stack.
Allows applications to request the network resources they want because AppShare doesn't just simply route a packet as a black box; it reads the packet's contents and then provides resources as directed by each individual application.
