As Applications continue to rapidly drive digital business, IT teams are under constant pressure to meet aggressive time-to-market deadlines while supporting increasing number of applications. They also need to consider ever changing application architectures, from monolithic applications to distributed microservices. While this may seem like a tall order, the biggest challenge however is in deploying and maintaining these applications across a multi-cloud environment while keeping cost low.

Infosys, an Indian multinational information technology company that provides business consulting, information technology and outsourcing services experienced this challenge firsthand. After careful consideration and evaluation process, they chose NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi) for supporting their applications running on-premises, and in Azure.

An additional interesting fact about deploying applications on multiple clouds is that 94% of enterprises have or will deploy multi-cloud workloads across on-prem data centers and clouds by 2023. For Edward Jones, multi-cloud is not a vision. It is a reality they strive to take advantage of. To provide consistent app delivery for superior customer experience, Edward Jones was particularly interested in VMware’s Advanced Load Balancing solution which has a Cloud connector design model that sets the foundation for being the Switzerland of Load Balancers. It is the secret sauce for orchestration and automation from a single fabric which is multi-cloud and multi-AZ aware. To learn more about Edward Jones’s journey of migrating from F5, best practices and real lessons learnt as well as designs and reference architecture for on-prem and public cloud deployments including AWS, Azure, GCP, VMC and more, please plan on Joining this session:

Avi’s WAF delivers simplified and highly scalable application security, with visibility and security insights that helps customize a comprehensive application security policy per application or tenant.

In recent times, more than 90% of attacks such as Log4j involve web applications critical to business. As discussed earlier, with applications getting deployed in multi-cloud environments and in container clusters, the attack surface has increased drastically. Edward Jones was keen on securing their applications before attacks reached inside the data centers or Kubernetes clusters. It was key to building their first line of defense. Join this session given below to learn about analytics-driven application security that includes web application firewall (WAF), bot management, container ingress, DDoS, IP reputation, auth, live security threat intelligence, and more.
