Snapt Nova Now Available


Snapt Nova, a centrally managed, Kubernetes Native ADC 2.0 Solution, is now available. It includes a Load Balancer, Web Accelerator, Web Application Firewall and GSLB.

“Nova is the first ADC solution to overcome the challenges of hyperscale networks with global reach,” said Snapt CTO Dave Blakey. “Following successful alpha and beta launches, we are thrilled to bring a groundbreaking product like Nova, the first and only ADC to incorporate AI-based security and scaling, to market. Nova makes hyperscale a reality and represents a sea change in how DevOps and ITOps teams can manage their networks.”

Nova integrates with popular cloud providers including Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure and DigitalOcean.

According to the company, Nova simultaneously deploys, configures and controls, one to one-millions of worker ADCs across any cloud and/or platform in 20 to 60 seconds. Nova runs a truly distributed, east-west architecture and treats ADCs as code, not devices.

Nova addresses the unique challenges arising from microservices architectures, including East-West load balancing with a lightweight footprint, broad compatibility and open APIs. Now, DevOps teams can ensure the availability of the services they manage, and benefit from detailed monitoring and analytics, self-managing and self-scaling components, and the ability to make changes easily in a controlled environment.

“We set up Nova’s pricing structure to be as flexible as possible so no one pays for something that they don’t need,” said Blakey. “It’s also on-demand, consumption-based and multi-platform. For example, if a customer pays $99 a month for a single node and runs it for five hours in total during a month, they will be charged 67 cents. This means your ADC is billable on the same terms as your cloud storage and compute resources.”

Snapt is offering a 30% discount and free set-up support to NPOs, SMMEs, healthcare organizations, government agencies, educational facilities and any vulnerable entity affected by COVID-19.
