Date: 1st September 2009
MAHWAH, N.J.; September 1, 2009. Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that it has completed Oracle validated integration testing for the integration of AppDirector 2.0.01, its intelligent application delivery controller (ADC), with Oracle® E-Business Suite (EBS) 12.0. The validation testing was completed through the Oracle PartnerNetwork Application Integration Architecture for Partners initiative.
Oracle E-Business Suite 12.0 is a comprehensive suite of integrated, global business applications, with hundreds of cross-industry capabilities spanning enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, and supply chain planning. Maintaining the integrity, reliability and availability of the Oracle E-Business Suite applications is critical to the success of an organisation’s global business environment. When deployed with Oracle E-Business Suite, Radware’s AppDirector helps ensure the continuous application availability and scalability by managing network complexities to avoid system downtime through advanced health monitoring and traffic management.
Key benefits of this solution delivered through its integrated approach, include:
• High availability: Radware’s advanced health-monitoring algorithms can detect real-time failures in the Oracle E-Business Suite environment, and can automatically redirect users to an available resource.
• Acceleration and Optimisation: AppDirector offers advanced acceleration capabilities which include SSL offloading, caching, compression and TCP multiplexing to enhance the end-user experience; providing faster download times and a reduction in the required bandwidth needed to support Oracle E-Business Suite, as a whole.
• CAPEX and OPEX Savings: By offloading server processing, AppDirector’s acceleration capabilities lowers CAPEX by reducing the number of servers needed, as well as reducing the bandwidth consumption required to support the Oracle E-Business Suite solution. AppDirector also reduces OPEX by decreasing the management and security costs associated with Oracle E-Business Suite.
• On Demand, “Pay-as-you-Grow” Scalability: As part of Radware’s Business-Smart Data Centre strategy, AppDirector is powered by the company’s next-generation OnDemand Switch platform, which provides a seamless upgrade path – offered in a pay-as-you-grow licensing model – to support more users and greater traffic throughput without any physical forklift upgrade.
“As a business-critical solution, the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.0 environment must optimise user transactions between the different Oracle application servers’ elements to deliver superior performance and productivity,” said Yossi Vardi, Vice-President Global Business Development, Radware. “AppDirector focuses on improving the overall user quality of experience – dynamically allocating application resources to deliver faster response times to all users, at all times.”
The AppDirector devices are deployed in-front of the Oracle application servers, and seamlessly integrate into existing and newly-deployed Oracle E-Business Suite 12.0 environments – without the need to modify the network infrastructure, end-user client devices, software, or source code.
