Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and governments, on a metered, pay-as-you-go basis.


ZEVENET® began its public release in October 2010, and we have not stopped refining security, scalability, and high availability technology ever since.

Strengths & Weaknesses: Amazon WS & ZEVENET

See how ZEVENET and Amazon Web Services compare across some of the most critical ADC capabilities.

Amazon Web Services Strengths

The vendor´s suite of ADC services is highly integrated with the AWS cloud offering.
Has fostered a large community of developers that are very familiar with its API and suite of functionalities.
Is the fastest-growing major vendor in the market.
Shown an increasing commitment to developing and delivering enterprise-centric features.

ZEVENET’s Strengths

Disruptive vision with a stable growth as challengers in the ADC market, with an agile team and engaged community.
Innovation driven with Open Source technology with no vendor lock-in and broad platforms integration (hardware, virtual, bare metal and cloud).
Very high cost-effective solutions without limitation products and services, suitable for both midsize organizations and large enterprises.
Investment in R&D to deliver a technology driven by easiness, performance and security.
Is a complete ADC (Application Delivery Controller) that could manage all kinds of network protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP/S, SCTP, SIP, T/FTP, …) but also with a combination of all of them simultaneously and multiport capabilities; and it’s not oriented to licensed features.
Its operating system is fully optimized for networking so it is capable to move in layer 7 more than 140 thousand concurrent users and in layer 4 more than 10 million concurrent users with only 2 dedicated cores.
Ability to create configuration backups, easy cluster configuration, automatic replication from one node to another and stateful cluster with real time sessions replications that permits a failover between nodes without losing any connection.
Provides an integrated IPDS security system with real time black hole lists, DoS protection, black/white listing and protection of the most common network attacks.
Provides a very UX graphic interface for both operators and network engineers in Angular 2 technology.
Automation capabilities thanks to it’s fully programmable REST+JSON API.

Amazon Web Services’s Weaknesses

Cannot fully address ADC for workloads not deployed within the AWS cloud.
Lacks several key Level 7 enterprise features compared to other ADC vendors.
In volatile usage scenarios that entail traffic, customers may need to contact AWS before so that the vendor can prewarm.

ZEVENET’s Weaknesses

Young brand as an open source company and yet to develop a big influence than other more established vendors.
Needs to develop a broader partnership network.
