 Getting Started with Brocade vADC

 

vTM.pngWelcome to Brocade Application Delivery solutions! This article gives a quick five-step guide to how you can download Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager, including how to download the Developer Edition of the software, installing and configuring your first services, and then how to request a full-performance 30-day license key to experience the full power of Brocade Application Delivery solutions.

 

1. Download Brocade vADC

The quickest way to get started with Brocade vADC is to download the Developer Edition of Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager. This will give you access to all the features and full programmability of Brocade vADC software, including add-on options for web application firewall (WAF) and web content optimization (WCO). The software needs no license key, but is limited to 1 Mbps/100 SSL tps throughput, but can be used to explore the software and develop applications and interfaces.
 

2. Install Brocade vADC

Grab either the software (Linux or Solaris) or Virtual Appliance (VMware, Xen or OracleVM) installation and follow the instructions in the appropriate Getting Started guide. We have created dedicated installation and configuration guides for each type of environment, as part of the documentation set for Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager - choose the right environment, and install the software and you are ready to go.
 
(You can find the complete set of user documentation here)
 

3. Discover Brocade vADC

These Brocade community pages include a wide range of resources to help you explore Brocade vADC solutions. From setting up simple services, through to remote management with REST and SOAP, and high-performance data-plane control using TrafficScript, Brocade gives you a comprehensive set of tools to differentiate and prioritise applications and services. See below for some good starting points!
 

4. Scale up Brocade vADC

Ready to scale up your performance? When you are ready to move to the next level, you can request a 30-day evaluation license to test the full power of Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager. You will be sent a license key by email, which you can upload into the Developer Edition - then you can run complete performance and load testing in your own data center or cloud platforms. This evaluation license key will include Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager, again with add-on options for web application firewall (WAF) and web content optimization (WCO).
