SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Avi Networks, the cloud application delivery company, today announced the general availability of the industry’s first Cloud Application Delivery Platform (CADP), based on its Hyperscale Distributed Resources Architecture (HYDRATM). Avi Networks delivers enterprise customers the benefits of a hyper-scale approach to application delivery, for any infrastructure, at any scale, for on-premise and cloud-based applications. Founded by networking industry veterans and backed by top tier investors, Avi Networks has raised $33 million in funding and has several Fortune 500 customers in production and pilots.
The $4 billion ADC and network monitoring markets are going through major transitions. As applications move to cloud- based infrastructures and mobile becomes the dominant endpoint, it becomes increasingly difficult to guarantee end-user application experience. Large cloud service providers such as Amazon, Facebook and Google have abandoned expensive fleets of proprietary ADC appliances from incumbent vendors. Instead, these web giants have internally developed analytics-driven, scale-out layers of software-defined infrastructure services that enable them to efficiently and reliably deliver hyperscale applications on commodity hardware. However, most enterprises do not have the luxury of investing in engineering resources to internally develop software for new application delivery architectures.
“Application traffic flows have become less deterministic, and infrastructure architects can no longer rely solely on centralized appliances to provide necessary application delivery and security services. New deployment models are emerging to help enterprises with this transition,” Gartner said in a recent research report.

“In today’s mobile cloud era, the traditional appliance-centric, monolithic application delivery approach doesn’t work anymore,” said Umesh Mahajan, Founder and CEO of Avi Networks. “Inspired by the proven architectural approach pioneered by hyperscale cloud service providers, we developed the Avi Networks Cloud Application Delivery Platform to allow enterprise customers to accelerate their cloud journey, while maximizing their end-user application experience.”
