Virtually all companies today are primarily cloud-hosted or have workloads in public clouds.
However, the promise of lower costs and increased agility is too often replaced by escalating expenses and "vendor lock-in".
Clients are seeing per-request ingress bills from services like AWS ALB and Azure Gateway run to tens of thousands of dollars a month. Additionally, these native, own-brand services aren’t compatible with other clouds, locking you in and reducing agility.
These costs and lock-in make it extremely difficult for companies to adopt multi-cloud and hybrid deployments and to embrace scalability, containerization, and modern infrastructure.
Snapt provides a centralized, vendor-neutral platform for security and ingress into your clouds.
With Snapt Nova you can easily deploy advanced load balancing, application firewalling, threat intelligence, and content acceleration into any cloud, and any VM, hardware or container platform.
Regardless of your cloud choice, Nova helps maximize cost savings and infrastructure agility, while improving security, visibility, and control.
Snapt vs native Cloud load balancing
“Cloud-neutral” is a concept most companies are already embracing, whether by design or by circumstance.
The core concept is to ensure your business-critical applications run on any platform – or at least on multiple platforms – to mitigate the risks of outages, cost increases, design changes, and more.
Platform by purpose
When looking for a cloud neutral or "no lock-in" design, you must consider several components, but the most enabling and most critical is the entrance point to your cloud – the ingress.
An application delivery controller (ADC) – often simply called a load balancer – is typically responsible for global traffic routing, and for traffic processing at the point where it arrives in a cloud. ADCs provide advanced routing, monitoring, security, and performance suites to deliver your data efficiently to your services or applications, while ensuring the security and performance.
A cloud-neutral ADC solution at the ingress enables multi-cloud and horizontal scalability, delivering immense value to your business, with four main advantages.
Move traffic between locations and deploy apps into multiple clouds easily and securely.
Monitor and control all your critical ingress points through one interface.
Strengthen your security by avoiding complexity, confusion, and information silos.
Remove value from the data plane to the control plane.
Achieving Cloud Neutrality with Snapt.
Snapt Nova is a centralized platform for deploying and scaling any number of ADCs into any number of clouds, virtual machines, containers, or devices.
Nova provides powerful and intelligent application delivery and ingress security for multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud businesses, simplifying your operations, centralizing your security and control, and improving your agility and scalability.
Nova deploys ADCs and load balancers as a service - not as servers. Nova ADC services can scale-out in seconds to handle millions of SSL transactions per second, and scale-in to reduce costs when demand goes down. Within 30 seconds, Nova can launch ADC services in any cloud in the world, ready to receive and secure traffic for your applications and services whether they are virtualized, cloud-native, or containerized.
