Application-aware infrastructure performance monitoring service benefits from unique load balancing, SSL offloading and web sockets solution
Milpitas, CA – June 14, 2016 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, announces today that Uila, Inc. has selected Array’s APV series application delivery controllers (ADCs) to optimize performance and ensure security for its application-aware infrastructure performance management (AA-IPM) software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering.
Launched in early 2016, Uila’s flagship product allows IT professionals managing virtualized data centers to quickly and easily identify and remediate application performance problems caused by compute, storage and network issues. With Uila, IT can prevent service disruptions arising from stressed infrastructure, while simultaneously tuning the performance of essential business applications.
As a cloud-based SaaS offering, Uila’s AA-IPM solution requires a robust, scalable cloud data center to serve a rapidly growing customer base – a data center that is capable of running non-stop, year-round and providing the highest levels of availability and security for Uila customers.
By deploying Array load balancing and web sockets technology, Uila application traffic can be evenly and securely distributed among the servers while maintaining session persistence. If a server must be taken offline for maintenance or becomes unavailable due to outage, application traffic is seamlessly diverted to alternate healthy servers.
In addition, Array ADCs provide SSL offloading in the Uila cloud, managing compute-intensive key exchange, bulk encryption and client certificate management. With Array doing the heavy lifting, Uila’s bare-metal application servers can focus on their primary goal: managing big data to deliver an in-depth view of data center infrastructure across entire virtualized environments.
“In order to maximize the value of our SaaS cloud for customers, we needed to get the best possible service from our back-end servers, consume the least bandwidth and achieve the best performance possible,” said Dean Au, COO and Co-Founder of Uila, Inc. “Array allows us to accomplish these goals with an easy-to-use, scalable and high-performance platform.”
“Uila’s choice of Array ADCs to enhance the performance and security of its AA-IPM application is yet another example of Array’s ability to help SaaS providers scale their cloud solutions,” said Paul Andersen, Senior Director of Marketing at Array Networks. “We are thrilled to have Array’s load balancing, SSL offload and web sockets capabilities playing a role in providing a superior always-on experience for Uila and its end-user customers.”
