Hot off the presses, here are some of today's announcements that caught our eye.
- Coyote Point today announced a May 12 ship date for Equalizer 7.0, a Layer 7-enabled upgrade of the company's intelligent load balancing appliance. New options include SSL acceleration and a gigabyte interface. The Layer 7 capabilities, added to the E-350 intermediate and E-450 high-end models of the Equalizer, include cookie-based persistence, cookie stuffing, and URL load balancing.
- AEP Systems announced today the release of AEP SureWare A-Gate 1.2, a secure sockets layer (SSL) VPN product with new Windows Terminal Services capability. This allows applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Word and Excel and legacy applications to be made available to users with no requirement to pre-install the client software on their computers. Updates for this version include increased performance, enhanced authentication schemes and extended key management.
- Marvell (no relation to Spider-Man) today debuted and demonstrated a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) copper transceiver for IEEE 802.3ak 10GBASE-CX4 applications. Replacing optical links with copper, they contend, will significantly lower the cost of 10GBASE-CX4 links.
