Array AVX Series
Array AVX Series Network Functions Platforms
Multiple Network Functions
AVX Series appliances can host vAPV virtual application delivery controller (ADCs), vxAG virtual secure access gateway (SSL VPNs) or 3rd-party networking, security and application delivery functions, and can mix and match virtual appliances as needed to meet deployment requirements. Visit our Platform Ecosystem page for more information on 3rd-party VA support.
Flexible Size Options
AVX Series appliances can host four different size vAPV, vxAG and 3rd-party instances: entry, small, medium and large. Instances of different sizes can be mixed, matched and fine-tuned as needed to meet deployment requirements. Smaller sizes will allow for more instances per system, and larger sizes will allow for greater performance per instance. The AVX3600 and AVX5800 can host shared-entry instances which offer best-effort performance for smaller workloads where density is a primary consideration.
AVX Series appliances support pay-as-you-grow licensing, allowing you to pay for the VA licenses you need today and purchase additional licenses as needed to meet future deployment requirements up to your system's capacity. Array virtual ADCs and SSL VPNs are also available in economical bulk license packs for the AVX Series.
Each vAPV, vxAG and 3rd-party instance is automatically assigned dedicated CPU, SSL, memory and input/output interfaces to ensure guaranteed performance per virtual appliance. In addition, dedicated resources are reserved for hypervisor management to eliminate virtual machine contention and enable SLAs for business-critical customers and applications. For shared-entry instances, available only on AVX3600 and AVX5800, best-effort performance is provided.
AVX Series appliances provide high availability at both system and virtual appliance levels. By deploying a high availability pair of vAPV, vxAG, or 3rd-party instances across a pair of AVX Series appliances, availability is assured in the event that either a system or a virtual appliance is unresponsive. Full synchronization to the slave unit of the AVX and VA-related configurations, along with VA images and disks, further assures consistency and high availability.
