Application networking provider A10 Networks has maximised uptime for Sri Lankan retailer Abans with A10 ADC solution.
Abans' network of stores was expanding and its existing system for providing line-of-business (LOB) applications based on a distributed database architecture was not delivering results.
The retailer searched for a responsive IT infrastructure that could support its agile operations across entire Sri Lanka.
The company also wanted to provide its local staff with a high-performance and reliable network to offer a world class customer experience to its clients.
Abans deployed the A10 ADC featuring an Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) designed specifically for applications such as Terminal Services (TS) and RemoteDesktop Services (RDS).
The A10 ADC provides Abans with more robust response in failover situations, offloading security processing, and performing intelligent load sharing.
Features such as token redirection allow for routing and reconnection of existing sessions, which provide a more resilient implementation.
Other features of A10 include its ability to support large RDS farms enabling future expansion with granular RDS load balancing and availability options.
EGUARDIAN, A10's local systems integrator and implementation partner in Sri Lanka, was able to handle the complex implementation within a very tight timeframe.
"EGUARDIAN took care of the setup and configuration of the A10 ADC, which has performed faultlessly from day one," said Pubudu De Silva, senior manager of IT at Abans. "A second unit of the A10 ADC was added to create a high availability (HA) setup, as well as for future capacity expansion, for which some additional configuration was required. When an issue was encountered during this configuration, the response from A10 was excellent, and problems were quickly resolved."
