Application Resiliency Using Themis

IPAM

The three major components of TCPWave Application Delivery Controller (ADC) comprise an SLB (Server Load Balancer), GSLB (Global Server Load Balancer), and a WAF (Web Application Firewall). The local traffic management is performed seamlessly and securely on a TCPWave ADC remote using the Local Traffic Orchestration (LTO) policies. The remotes exceed the performance numbers of many high transaction processing networks. Adding a virtual IP as a front end and registering its DNS address into the IPAM becomes a simplified operation by leveraging the TCPWave ADC solution. Centralized management decouples the service layer from the management layer. Similar to the DNS remotes, the ADC remotes are also managed, monitored, and maintained by the TCPWave IPAM. Modern load balancing methods such as round-robin, weighted round-robin, and least connections are supported along with session and cookie persistence. A well-documented set of REST APIs is also available in a swagger format.

The TCPWave GSLB solution provides optimal performance by steering traffic intelligently across multiple servers in different geographic locations, ensuring high availability and performance for websites and online services using the Global Traffic Orchestration (GTO) policies. The global traffic management is performed securely on a TCPWave remote which ensures multi-site resiliency and disaster recovery, enhancing the scalability and agility of the data center. The operations to resolve the domain queries by monitoring the health of the SLB services defined in the IPAM and exchanging the health information with the GSLB services are managed efficiently by leveraging the TCPWave GSLB solution.

The TCPWave WAF protects web applications by providing an additional layer of security in conjunction with other security measures by filtering, monitoring, and blocking HTTP traffic to and from a web application. It analyzes incoming traffic to a web application and block any requests that are identified as potentially malicious, preventing attacks stemming from web application security flaws, such as SQL injections, cross-site scripting (XSS), file inclusion, and security misconfigurations. The operation of monitoring web applications, where the IPAM centrally manages ADC and WAF configurations, is simplified with the TCPWave WAF solutions.

The TCPWave Themis solution, an optional add-on, adopts the DevOps approach to reduce manual intervention by using application programming interfaces (APIs) compatible with automation tools. Critical operations include generating virtual IP addresses, creating back-end nodes, unifying virtual IP addresses with the respective back-end nodes, and registering them into DNS. Some of the significant operations such as creating Access Control Lists (ACL) and Advanced Rules are fully automated thus ensuring the reliability and scalability of the Load Balancer.
