Delivering application services (load balancing, service discovery, tenant isolation, traffic and performance analytics, etc.) in a multicloud environment on OpenStack does not seem to be a cakewalk.  Legacy, appliance-based load balancers, according to our customers, are neither flexible nor agile.  They do not offer the self-service capabilities that our customers need to continuously innovate and deliver.

We are one weekend away from OpenStack Summit!  As I pack my bags, I was thinking back to the previous summits I attended in Tokyo, Vancouver, and Paris.  The community, the projects and the stability thereof, have evolved beyond everyone’s expectations and to the naysayers’ disbelief.

Taking Application delivery beyond load balancing?  (Don't) Throw more hardware!

It’s been two weeks (since I joined Avi) or four Silicon Valley weeks!  And if you imagine a proverbial “firehose”, I think it is safe to say Avi unleashes at least 10x more!  So yes, these two weeks have been like a whirlwind for me.

May 22nd, 2015, OpenStack Summit, Vancouver:

Since embellishing one’s “takeaways” appears to be en vogue right after an event like this, I thought I’d write about our giveaways instead!

First, you should know that we had 2 giveaways at the Avi Networks booth: T-Shirts & laptop stickers – both quantities in the hundreds.  Despite a small booth, we ran out of both of them... almost as quickly as kombucha sells out at a new age festival!

OpenStack VM | Enable End-to-End SSL for OpenStack

SSL or OpenStack?

How about YES to both...

Enterprises face a major hurdle in moving mission-critical apps to an OpenStack environment. The reason - the lack of SSL support. Today, OpenStack offers no way of adding certificates for SSL offload and end-to-end SSL for securing apps from the Horizon Dashboard. Avi Networks not only solved the problem but also open sourced the code we wrote (see the github link below).

Watch this 3 minute video to see Avi Networks’ Horizon UI extension that supports SSL Certificates for LBaaS. See how you can deploy “end-to-end SSL” (From Web-clients to the load balancers ..and all the way to the backend servers) and secure applications by adding SSL certificates to OpenStack Load Balancers – all within minutes.

Here’s something I hear all the time from OpenStackers: 

“I spent a lot of time bringing up OpenStack. Now everything is stable and we have this amazing self-service private cloud. But I can’t seem to convince the line of business guys that this is the right environment for their apps! They don’t have the same trust in it that I do.”

ChasmWith any disruptive innovation, there will always be innovators and early adopters who eagerly jump on the bandwagon. Today, we’re seeing more and more businesses move to the cloud as users take advantage of its utility-based model and associated economic benefits. So why isn’t everyone “crossing the chasm” and what will it take to persuade the late majority and laggards to move to the cloud?

Cloud vs. Application Delivery

avatar Dhritiman Dasgupta (DD)
Posted on Aug 14, 2014 11:00:00 AM

There is no doubt that on-demand cloud services are gaining ground among corporate users of all sizes. Despite the obvious promises of greater flexibility and efficiency, the transition to cloud is incomplete until we can solve a few thorny issues.
