Key Information: Nova application delivery platform

Centralized Control

The Nova Cloud Controller can deploy, configure and control from one to millions of "worker" load balancers across any cloud and platform in 20-40 seconds, all through a single UI.

Scalable Cloud ADC

Nova ADCs are lightweight code, not servers, enabling automated, on-demand scale-out and scale-in for your services, servers, applications and platform.

Efficient Resourcing

Nova saves on average 30% on Cloud spend using real-time AI-based autoscaling and an ultra-lightweight footprint, consuming less CPU and cloud compute.

Disruptive Technology

Real-time communication with near-zero latency, east-west application load balancing, AI and Machine Learning Engine, true hyperscale, and more.

Total Visibility

A holistic view of your network and applications regardless of location, environment or infrastructure. Aggregated data produces better reporting and automated decision-making.

Elastic Deployment

Supports monolithic applications to distributed microservices, VMs to containers and local datacenters to multi-cloud.

Optimize Application Performance

Nova’s centrally managed, hyperscale ADCs optimize the performance, speed and responsiveness of applications, websites and services.

Your applications have a direct impact on customer experience and revenue. Nova application load balancers will empower your applications to go as fast and as big as they need.

Keep Your Business Available and Online

Nova cloud application load balancer provides high availability, autoscaling and global server load balancing to ensure that business-critical services, applications and data stay consistently accessible, available and online.

Autoscaling, disaster recovery, multi-cloud routing and a powerful HTTP/S WAF protect your business against critical failure and security threats.

Reduce Security Risks

Nova offers enhanced security through its load balancer and WAF using our AI and Machine Learning Engine to protect your business from hacking and other threats.

Attack vectors and application vulnerabilities are expanding at almost unmanageable rates, which creates major risk – especially in the context of commercially sensitive data.

Nova helps IT leaders ensure compliance with data security and privacy regulations with geographic routing and intelligent protection against DoS, threats, botnets, data leaks and application attacks.

Real-Time Intelligence, Reduced Cost

Nova provides real-time control and application observability that's exponentially better than anything else. This enables real-time intelligent scaling, security response and performance optimization.

Autoscale and load balance your applications between multiple cloud providers (AWS, AZURE, DigitalOcean, GCP ) automatically shifting to the lowest cost option.

Scale faster and increase performance for an improved user experience, which translates to more conversions, more revenue and more repeat customers.

Application Load Balancer for Cloud Native Deployments

We have entered a new era in application load balancing and ADCs must change to adapt to the new paradigms.

Snapt believes that to qualify as an application load balancer 2.0 solution, there are some key rules that must be followed.

  • The Application Delivery Controller (Load Balancer, WAF, GSLB and Accelerator) is a service, not a server, easily launched, replaced and configured.
  • Use control-plane / data-plane architecture when developing the application load balancing platform. 
  • Application Load Balancers need to be everywhere. Every ADC provider needs to support any platform, the ADC is available as a vendor-neutral container or binary that can run on any modern Linux platform.
