Nova ADC The patented technology

Nova is made up of several core technologies that power our stack, learn more about them here, or try them yourself.

Massive scale at near-zero latency

Communication protocol

Nova is powered by the patent-pending Panther Authority. Panther allows you to easily, efficiently, and with low-latency and extremely high scale take (up to) complete control of millions of servers or devices in parallel.

Panther clients dial out to the Panther Authority and are then able to be instructed (in parallel) to read or write any file, and to run any command. This technology allows Nova to control massive amounts of systems, and process incredible amounts of data.

What does this mean for you? For starters it means we can control any number of ADC devices you need, and we can do that in milliseconds. This speed allows us to display live data, and to make changes instantly. Secondly, it means no fiddling with firewalls and redirect rules, just allow encrypted HTTPS out of your device and we will handle the rest.

Layer 7 availability, performance and security

ADC Engine

Nova Nodes run the Snapt ADC engine, a powerful Layer 7 load balancer, web accelerator and application firewall that powers thousands of clients around the world, including Target, NASA, MTV and more.

What does this mean for you? The Snapt ADC is known for extreme power, reliability and efficiency. You can process 100,000 Layer 7 requests a second and block gigabits of data on a single container. Load balance anything, accelerate your systems, and protect your critical infrastructure.

Integration, intelligence, and AI

Cloud Platform

The brains at the front of the operation, the Nova Cloud platform is the orchestration engine for the management, deployment, monitoring, telemetry and power of the Nova ADC system.

It provides a central intelligence able to discover your servers and services, and automatically scale to handle the traffic requirements.

What does this mean for you? Manage all your ADCs from clouds, VMs, and containers in a single interface, designed for management at scale. See their telemetry, monitor app performance issues and more.

Introducing GSLB version 2.0

Nova Destinations

Destinations are powerful Nova powered intelligent DNS addresses that allow auto-scaling, traffic routing, disaster recovery, multi-cloud routing and much more.

What does this mean for you? Handle disaster recovery and automatically route traffic to Nova ADCs, tags and Nodes as they scale in or out. Featuring Layer 7 health checks and intelligent routing, Destinations ensure you are online!
