New Template Notice: Progress Products
Release Date: March 16, 2022
New Templates and accompanying Deployment Guides have been added for the following Progress Products:
- MOVEit Transfer
- Progress Application Server for OpenEdge
- WhatsUp Gold
Templates can be downloaded from the Progress Templates page. To deploy a template, also download the accompanying Progress Deployment Guide and follow the instructions provided to create the necessary Virtual Services on LoadMaster, as well as configure other required and optional settings.
The following are short descriptions of the recommended LoadMaster deployment for each Progress application. For details, please refer to the deployment guides at the link above.
Progress MOVEit Transfer
Progress MOVEit provides secure file transfers of sensitive data to meet regulatory compliance for every organization. With advanced management, automation, flexible deployment options, reporting, and simple API integrations, Progress MOVEit is the secure file transfer of choice.
MOVEit Transfer supports several secure protocols that can be load balanced and failover automatically in the event of a server going offline.
The LoadMaster template configures the Virtual Services to leverage Layer 4 and/or Layer 7 transparency for the TCP services such as HTTPS, SFTP, and FTPS. This approach will allow the real servers to see the source IP address of the devices running in the infrastructure.
Progress Application Server for OpenEdge
Progress Application Server for OpenEdge (PASOE), built upon the industry standard Apache Tomcat web server, delivers an efficient, highly scalable, and secure application server. This innovative application server allows organizations to modernize experiences and limit security vulnerabilities.
PASOE deployments consist of 2 or more servers running the PASOE and a back-end database server, with a High Availability configuration recommended.
PASOE can be published with different configuration options dependent on customer requirements, using either Source IP Persistence or Active Cookie Persistence (which is required for Single Sign On support).
The PASOE template uses HTTP/HTTPS health checking along with the default PASOE TCP ports. If enabled on the PASOE environment, OpenEdge Ping can also be leveraged to provide more advanced health checking.
Progress WhatsUp Gold provides the necessary monitoring of everything that is connected to the organization's network. With features such as device monitoring, application monitoring, Network Traffic Analysis, Log Management, and Configuration Management, administrators can finally take full control of all the entire infrastructure.
WhatsUp Gold failover deployments consist of 2 front end servers running the WhatsUp Gold application and a back-end SQL Server (SQL clustering recommended).
WhatsUp Gold consists of several components that can failover automatically in the event of the primary server going offline. WhatsUp Gold Web Server interface is the primary Virtual Service that will be used for health checking to ensure the server is online and ready to accept traffic.
The template configures the Virtual Services to leverage Layer 7 and transparency for the UDP services such as SNMP, Syslog, and Netflow. This approach will allow the real servers to see the source IP address of the devices running in the infrastructure.
