The Thunder TPS product line is a family of high-performance appliances that detect and mitigate multi-vector DDoS attacks at the network edge, functioning as a first line of defense for a network infrastructure.
Our Thunder TPS line of hardware appliances protects large networks with entry-level models starting at 38 Gbps and moving up to a 155 Gbps high-performance appliance for your most demanding requirements. All models feature dual power supplies, solid-state drives (SSDs), and have no inaccessible moving parts for high availability. All models benefit from our FPGA-based FTA technology, featuring FPGAs for hardware optimized packet processing to provide highly scalable flow distribution and DDoS protection capabilities. The FPGA-based FTA detects up to 60 common attack vectors in hardware without impacting the performance of the general-purpose CPUs that are used for processing more complex application-layer attacks.
Switching and routing processors provide high-performance network processing. Each appliance offers excellent performance per rack unit, and the highest level "80 PLUS Platinum™" certification for power supplies to ensure a green solution and reduce power consumption costs. High density 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gbps port options are available to meet very high networking bandwidth demands. Our high-performance appliances are available in an efficient 1 RU form factor, and up to eight Thunder TPS models can be clustered for even higher capacity and ease of management.
A10 Thunder Threat Protection Systems (TPS), for DDOS protection.
A10 Networks® Thunder® ADC product line of high-performance, next-generation application delivery controllers enable customers' applications to be highly available, accelerated and secure. Thunder ADC is our premium ADC product line, delivering up to 220 Gbps of throughput in a single appliance or 1.2 Tbps of throughput in a cluster, the broadest range of form factors (physical, virtual and hybrid), and with expanded system resources designed to support future feature needs.
The A10 Thunder ADC product line is built upon A10's Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS®) platform, with our Symmetric Scalable Multi-Core Processing (SSMP) software architecture that delivers high performance and a range of deployment options for dedicated, hosted or cloud data centers.
Application availability for customer satisfaction: Enable your Web and key infrastructure servers to scale seamlessly to meet customer demand and ensure business continuity to maximize revenue and user satisfaction.
Application acceleration for efficient operations: Provide fast and responsive service to your customers for competitive advantage and reduced infrastructure requirements for both application delivery and critical services, driving down CAPEX and OPEX.
Security for compliance and risk reduction: Protect against advanced and emerging attacks for uninterrupted operations, brand protection, and revenue loss while meeting required regulatory compliance obligations for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and other regulations.
A10 Thunder ADC delivers critical services in the most efficient hardware and software models. With its data center-efficient design and compact form factor, Thunder ADC minimizes your rack space, power consumption, and cooling costs.
While the Thunder ADC platform provides a rich set of application and security services out-of-the-box, it also supports open and standards-based programmability, which allows developers to rapidly integrate custom and off-the-shelf services with Thunder ADC. The A10 Harmony™ architecture combines open programmability, policy enforcement, and telemetry to deliver the next generation of application networking.
Thunder ADC product with SSL Insight Feature. Full SSL inspection
The Thunder and AX Series Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) have been deployed to protect, load balance and ensure availability for critical DNS infrastructure at Internet and DNS service providers. The A10 ADCs ensure the DNS infrastructure, as a strategic asset, is protected and DNS server resources are optimized.
Key benefits the A10 ADCs provide:
Reduce load for protected servers (up to 70%)
Legitimate DNS protocol traffic is allowed only, non-DNS traffic can be denied
Predictable load through high performance Surge Protection
Increases protected DNS server capacity while freeing resources to address increased load
Increased security for backend servers
Optional quarantine (redirection) of malicious or invalid traffic for inspection
Guarantee uptime regardless of DDoS attacks (hardware based SYN flood protection up to 50 million per second)Application Firewall: Protecting And Optimizing DNS Infrastructure
Protecting And Optimizing DNS Infrastructure
Problem 1: Malicious and Invalid Traffic Hitting DNS Infrastructure
Problem 2: Distributed DDoS Attacks on DNS Infrastructure
Problem 3: Increased DNS Infrastructure Pressure (Growth and Browser Pressure)
The A10 ADCs DNS Application Firewall
Included in the A10 ADCs products
Does not replace DNS servers, replaces existing server load balancer
Placed in front of existing DNS servers; enhances and optimizes
The Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) offers a variety of solutions to solve the challenges of DDoS attacks for service providers and large enterprises, protecting network infrastructure and allowing existing security solutions to be optimized for handling large-scale DDoS attacks. Thunder TPS provides sophisticated, high-performance features to mitigate the largest and most complex DDoS attacks while optimizing rack space and power consumption, ensuring that data center resources are used efficiently and effectively.
