Avi Networks, recently acquired by VMware, delivers software-defined application services with intelligent automation and elasticity with multi-cloud data fabrics. The Avi Vantage Platform (VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer) also includes an Intelligent Web Application Firewall (iWAF) and Universal Service Mesh to ensure fast, scalable, and secure application delivery. Avi Networks also integrates seamlessly with API driven automation and orchestration tools such as Ansible and Terraform. Avi Networks completes and enables enterprises' digital transformation.
With Avi Networks now part of VMware, we can deliver the industry's only complete software-defined networking stack from L2-L7 built for the modern multi-cloud era leveraging a common architectural foundation. VMware will be able to offer both built-in load balancing capabilities as part of VMware NSX, and an advanced, standalone ADC offering that includes global server load balancing, web application firewall (WAF) and advanced analytics and monitoring.
Avi Controller (Containers) Developer:
Avi Controller orchestrates the deployment of the Application Load Balancers across multiple data path entities called Service Engine(s). The requisition involves working in the following areas which aide the orchestration of Application Load Balancers
- Containers: Avi integration with container ecosystems. This module handles all the integration aspects of Avi in areas of load balancing, analytics and security. Challenges involve scaling Avi and handling distributed handling of service discovery and high availability.
- ServiceMesh: This module works with NSX Service Mesh providing next generation application delivery. Ingress Gateway, Global Server Load Balancing, Web Application Firewall and Client Authentication are some major features in this area.

Here is why customers love Avi!
"Without Avi I don't think the platform would have launched or been as successful, quickly, as it has been because it's basically fast tracking that ability to get into production," Crawford of Deutsche Bank
"Due to Avi's granular multi-tenancy, RBAC and user-friendly interface we can now provide access to this important infrastructure component for the vast majority of our support staff. This greatly reduces the time needed for customer issues to get fixed and get changes applied."
Stefan De Kooter, Network Engineer, Proxsys
"Appliance-based products weren't meeting our needs, and as we evaluated alternatives, web application firewalling was our number-one consideration. We were pleasantly surprised by Avi iWAF's simple deployment, impressive ease-of-use, and intelligent security analytics, as well as the responsiveness of the Avi team." Joris Vuffray, Head of Network and System Mgmt,
"We evaluated traditional and open source load balancers but they didn't meet our agility, flexibility, and performance expectations. They did not provide a model that was operationally viable. We wanted to provide the same dev/test environment capabilities to the development teams even in a production environment. Avi met all of these capabilities and added analytics on top!" Nate Baechtold, IT Architect, EBSCO Information Services.
