 Getting Started with Pulse vADC


Welcome to Pulse Secure Application Delivery solutions! This article gives a quick five-step guide to how you can download Pulse 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 Pulse Application Delivery solutions.


1. Download Pulse vADC

The quickest way to get started with Pulse vADC is to download the Developer Edition of Pulse Virtual Traffic Manager. This will give you access to all the features and full programmability of Pulse 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, so it can be used to explore the software and develop applications and interfaces.

2. Install Pulse vADC

Grab either the Software 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 Pulse 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 Pulse vADC

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

4. Scale up Pulse 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 Pulse 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 Pulse Virtual Traffic Manager, again with add-on options for web application firewall (WAF) and web content optimization (WCO).
