Radware Accelerates Applications With New Alteon Version

MAHWAH, N.J., Oct. 12. Radware, a leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced the availability of its Alteon OS 27 software to provide integrated application acceleration capabilities, thus decreasing latency and server hardware costs -- to provide a better quality of experience (QoE) for the end user.

With Radware's Alteon OS 27, customers deploying the Alteon series 4 and 5 will be able to experience a wide range of application acceleration capabilities including SSL offloading, web compression, caching, HTTP multiplexing and TCP optimization to better address server performance issues, response time bottlenecks and security risks. This will free server CPUs to handle additional requests thus, minimizing the need for additional investment in hardware to support application processing requirements and thus, further decreasing costs.

With the deployment of OS 27 on the Alteon series 4 and 5, end-users will benefit from enhanced QoE as a result of faster response times and accelerated web browsing. For example, when deployed with popular applications such as Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle Siebel, PeopleSoft and others, response time can be accelerated by up to 350 percent and the CPU load of servers reduced by 40 percent.

Radware's Alteon 4 and 5 series based on Radware's OnDemand platform delivers on demand scalability in throughput and services allowing customers to scale up though a simple software license upgrade. This approach helps business to overcome capacity planning challenges and reduces risks associated with data center growth for best investment protection.

"Application acceleration capabilities in the datacenter are essential to ensure the smooth working of mission critical applications," stated Nir Ilani, Product Marketing Director, Application Delivery, Radware. "Additionally, these capabilities have greater importance in virtual data centers where applications suffer from increased latency caused by a virtualized infrastructure. Alteon switches reduce application latency and improve the QoE of virtual and non-virtual applications."
