Array network hyperconverged infrastructure platforms provide the best of both worlds – the agility of virtualization combined with the performance of purpose-built networking and security hardware. Deployed in the enterprise or service provider data center, the AVX enables consolidation of services such as next-generation firewalls, SSL VPNs, load balancing, web application firewalls, IPS/IDS and other network services either from Array or other 3rd-party vendors.
AVX virtualization platforms deliver superior performance compared to general-purpose servers by virtualizing and reserving resources such as CPU, RAM, I/O and SSL on a per VA basis. In addition, Array platforms simplify deployment of virtual network functions by automating and optimizing tasks such as resource assignment, CPU pinning, NUMA boundaries, and physical and virtual port mapping to provide both guaranteed SLAs and quicker time-to-market.
Shared Environment, Guaranteed Performance
Mix, match and consolidate networking and security functions from Array and 3rd-party vendors on a purpose-built platform that enables intuitive instantiation, service automation and guaranteed performance per virtual network function.
Array Networks ADC, VPN, WAF, SSLi
3rd Party Vendor Next-Gen FW, IPS, etc.
HW Accelerated SSL
Automated Resource Provisioning
(CPU, SSL, Memory, I/O, HD)
Intuitive Service Chaining
Deploys in Minutes
Advanced N-HCI Features
HOST ANY NETWORK OR SECURITY FUNCTION
Run ADC, SSL VPN, WAF, or SSLi from Array or networking and security functions such as NGFW from 3rd-party vendors.
UNMATCHED DENSITY FOR CONSOLIDATION
Deploy up to 64 VMs on a single platform. Mix and match large, medium, small, entry or shared-entry instance sizes.
GUARANTEED PERFORMANCE SLAS
Dedicated resources for hypervisor management and VAs enable SLAs for key customers and applications.
AUTOMATED SERVICE PROVISIONING

SERVICE CHAINING & ORCHESTRATION
Create services chains linking multiple hosted VAs to provide defense-in-depth for mission-critical application traffic.
FLEXIBLE PLATFORM SIZING OPTIONS
Three virtualization platform options – AVX5800, 7800 and 9800 – to meet the need of any size data center or workload.
HW-ACCELERATED SSL ENCRYPTION
Uniquely capable of running virtual load balancing with hardware-accelerated SSL for enhanced performance.
HIGH AVAILABILITY ARCHITECTURE
HA for both platforms and VAs ensures business continuity in the event any system element should become unresponsive.
