A10 Networks Lightning ADC Room for Improvement

Faisal Ghias Mir
Senior Architect at EMumba
Sometimes, there are multiple ADC components running at the same time which causes problems relating to the load balance in traffic leading to the matrices being pushed back towards the harmony site. This is an area for improvement that I have seen. It's not like AWS or Azure. The documentation is pretty much closed and I think A10 crashes sometimes because initially, I was not able to set up lighting ADC. Eventually, I figured it out myself. The problem was that there was a mismatch with the docker version, that's why they were not communicating with each other — lightning ADC and Harmony. A10 documentation is not as open and accessible as AWS and Azure documentation is. For a beginner, it takes a bit of time to get used to it. The ADC devices that I have seen so far, seem to follow in the direction of an iOS. It's pretty much an operating system — you have to perform your own configurations depending upon the use cases that you want to use it for. Kubernetes is different from Lightning in this sense.
