Snapt Nova

Why Snapt Nova for Linode?

Snapt Nova is a complete app services platform adding load balancing, security, and GSLB to Linode with incredible performance. Nova is designed for security, observability, and maintenance at scale.

Integrated App Services

Everything you need for Linode ingress. Load balancing, WAF security, and GSLB. Supports HTTP/S, TCP, UDP, SSL/TLS, RDP, MySQL, and Exchange.

Powerful Load Balancer and WAF

Fast, lightweight app services scale out to millions of nodes at 10K SSL TPS per node. Layer 7, OWASP, DoS protection, SSL offloading, and resilient GSLB.

Cloud-Native Architecture

Nova's centralized control is built for modern distributed apps. Linode API, service discovery, autoscaling, self-healing, container-friendly, and lightweight.

Linode Integration

Deploy layer 7 load balancing and security to Linode in seconds. Tag-based service discovery.

Snapt Nova comes with a native Linode integration so it just works. Snapt's integration proxies requests from Linode ingress to Snapt Nova to apply intelligent multi-cloud load balancing, WAF/WAAP security, and performance optimization.

Connect multiple Linode accounts for multiple tenants or teams.

Snapt Nova will send traffic to your web servers' tags and discover their IP addresses automatically. It will let you know if HTTP reply times are slow and will swap traffic over to another Linode location if one goes down!

Deployment and Automation

The simple and accessible cloud needs simple and accessible app services. 

Dropping a clunky WAF or ADC appliance in front of your Linode deployment really cramps your style. Simplify everything with a cloud-native app services platform that works with the Linode ecosystem you know and love.

Nova spawns lightweight data plane nodes, defined by a centralized control plane. Control Nova your way, with a choice of modern web GUI or full REST API compatible with the Linode API. 

Simplify and centralize SSL certificate management for your whole deployment with Let's Encrypt integration.

Autoscaling Services

Don't get a WAF or load balancer – get the superpower to create unlimited app services on-demand!

Now your app services work in the same way as your other cloud-native Linode components. Scale up, scale down, manage it remotely, and only pay for what you use.

Snapt Nova uses lightweight worker nodes capable of running on 2-core CPUs and even ARM without sacrificing performance of 10,000 SSL TPS per node. These nodes are totally dynamic and ephemeral, so scale-in is 100% efficient.

Real-Time Telemetry And Analytics

Retrieve stats in Nova's UI, or via REST API in any reporting and visualization platform such as Prometheus and Grafana or DataDog. 

Nova Vision is a powerful traffic analysis engine that runs on your Nova Nodes and in the Nova Controller, using the edge to store and analyze logs and ship the results to the core. Centralized observability for all your load balancers and WAFs.

Nova runs continual health checks and analyzes every request, looking for performance issues, threats, or traffic spikes. You can receive notifications via email, Slack, webhook, and more.

What's Inside?

Snapt Nova provides load balancing and WAF security on-demand to millions of nodes from a central controller. Nova is designed for modern distributed applications.

App Services Platform

The Nova Controller deploys app services to millions of lightweight worker nodes with a near-zero latency connection. Real-time control, telemetry, and automation for every application and backend.

Autoscaling Anywhere

Nova can link directly to your cloud accounts and automatically scale your application services as demand rises. Handle millions of TPS and scale down automatically.

Multi-Cloud App Services

Nova quickly and easily deploys your load balancer and WAF templates into any cloud and even multiple clouds helping you deliver a consistent and agnostic multi-cloud or hybrid strategy.

Centralized Security

Total visibility and consistent policy with centralized WAF security for millions of nodes. Block hackers and bots, prevent SQL injection, DoS, CSRF, and more. Strengthen compliance and governance.

DevOps and CI/CD

Nova is built for automation and modern deployments. A full REST API, LBaaS capability, cloud and container-aware, infrastructure-as-code integration, service discovery, and more.

Self-Learning Intelligence

Nova collects and profiles telemetry from your apps – errors, latency, server health, traffic, and more – and uses built-in machine learning to detect anomalies and block emerging threats.
