SAN JOSE, CA: A10 Networks, a provider of application networking technologies, is offering its application delivery controller solution to Fujitsu Asia. The solution will enable Fujitsu Asia, a provider of highly reliable computing and communication systems, to standardize its cloud-based load balancing service and advance network operator capabilities.

A10 Thunder ADC is a next-gen application delivery controller that enables customers’ applications to be highly available, accelerated and secure. The controller is built on Advanced Core operating System platform  delivering up to 153Gbps throughput in a single appliance and 1.2Tbps of throughput in a cluster with expanded system resources supporting future feature needs. With its data center-efficient design and compact form factor, the A10 Thunder ADC minimizes rack space, power consumption, and cooling costs.

The solution provides a broad range of form factors and expansive system support resources ensuring availability of high-performance functions right from implementation without any need of additional licenses.
