LAS VEGAS -- Startup Array Networks Inc. has unveiled a new TM-X application accelerator product, here at the Networld+Interop conference.
The product is designed to sit in front of data-center servers and speed up Web traffic. It combines SSL acceleration, compression, TCP optimization, caching, firewall, and server load balancing, all in a single box.
Array's biggest challenge will be putting its recent turbulence behind it. Last year the company had to undergo significant restructuring after overreaching itself in an attempt to break into new markets. Sunil Cherian, Array's director of product management, says, "We had expanded too much into new product lines we went into network-based data monitoring."
Specifically, this meant ditching the company's Security Reconnaissance (SR) series of products, which recorded network traffic.
The restructuring also involved some pretty big job losses. Last year the company cut around 25 jobs, approximately a quarter of its original workforce.
