Embrane heleos, the industry’s first multi-service software platform for powering software-defined load balancers, firewalls and VPNs
Embrane heleos Overview
Embrane heleos is the industry’s first multi-service, distributed software platform for powering software-defined network services, including server load balancers, firewalls, VPN termination and SSL offload. Embrane heleos is purpose-built for any organization looking to design data centers where automation and agility are priorities, including private/hybrid/public cloud environments, as well as those looking to deliver cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions. Embrane heleos delivers substantial levels of agility – rapid service provisioning, non-disruptive elasticity, multi-tenancy at scale, and programmability – leading to the ability to dynamically adapt to changing business requirements, infuse network flexibility without adding complexity, and recognize significant capital and operational savings over integrated hardware-based systems and traditional virtual appliance offerings.
Its unique architecture and automated provisioning capabilities enable Embrane heleos to deliver the flexibility of on-demand software-defined layer 3-7 network services with performance and scalability that previously was possible only through integrated hardware-based systems.
Embrane heleos software-defined network services run on industry-standard x86 servers and leverage a distributed architecture that decouples the network services functionality from the underlying physical infrastructure, providing unmatched scalability, flexibility and performance. With Embrane heleos, network services can be procured and provisioned in less than 90 seconds. Every Embrane heleos-powered network service is also elastic and can be non-disruptively scaled up or down, based on demand, in less than 30 seconds, simplifying capacity planning and eliminating the need for over provisioning.
Current product offerings include the Embrane heleos-powered firewall (which also includes VPN termination), the Embrane heleos-powered load balancer (which includes SSL offload), and the Embrane heleos Elastic Services Manager (ESM), a single pane-of-glass, network services orchestration tool for automated provisioning and service management.
