Aerodata, Inc. Improves Customer Agility and Availability With Cost-effective Vmware NSX Solution

AeroData, Inc. offers aircraft performance data, weight and balance data, and load planning services to the airline industry to support approximately 21,000 ights per day. Over 50% of all North American ights—soon to be 85%, depend on AeroData. Growing demand led AeroData to consider a more responsive alternative to their existing hardware de ned data centers. The resulting VMware NSX® and vSANTM solutions provide a modern software-de ned data center (SDDC) solution for better customer access to AeroData data centers and improved availability to 99.999%, while also reducing cost, and minimizing management overhead. AeroData provides critical ight data for major airlines. Its customers appreciate that these services are connected but separate from the airline’s own IT systems. AeroData ensures customer data is secure and ight data is available when needed even when airlines experience issues. AeroData’s ight deck client-server application is the last application used by pilots before the aircraft entry door is closed prior to takeo . As a result, just ve minutes of system downtime can result in over 100 delayed ights and loss of revenue. To meet such high-availability requirements, AeroData established data centers in three physical locations in Arizona and Colorado. In addition, AeroData has invested in multiple circuit providers (MPLS and ISP) to ensure continuous access to its data center circuit failures. While data responsiveness is critical to its customers, AeroData also needs to ensure that the data is protected to meet federal aviation regulations.

Accelerating VMware NSX Traffic Across the WAN with Silver Peak

AeroData, Inc. offers aircraft performance, runway analysis, and weight and balance data to the airline industry to support approximately 16,000 ights per day. Growing customer demand has prompted AeroData to develop a more ef cient and exible architecture as an alternative to their existing hardware-de ned data centers. The resulting VMware NSX solution provides AeroData with a modern software de ned network (SDN) solution, which has improved customer access to AeroData data centers and improved availability to 99.999%, while also reducing cost and minimizing management overhead. AeroData provides critical ight data. Just ve minutes of downtime can result in over 100 delayed ights. To deliver that degree of high availability, AeroData established data centers in three locations across Arizona and Colorado. In addition, AeroData has invested in multiple circuit providers (MPLS and Internet) to ensure continuous access to its data centers in the event of circuit failures. While data responsiveness is critical to its customers, AeroData also needs to ensure that the data is protected to meet federal guidelines.

White Paper: Load Balancer as a Service

This paper describes automation of F5 load balancers using VMware vRealize Automation (vRA), vRealize Orchestrator (vRO), and NSX for vSphere. This paper provides integration among vRA, vRO, F5 Local Traffic Manager (LTM) for providing load balancer services locally in a data center, and F5 BIG-IP DNS (previously known as Global Traffic Manager or “GTM”) for load balancing across two data centers. The paper provides automation of F5 Big-IP DNS between a Primary data center and a Secondary data center, located in two separate physical locations.
