Foundry Network Product Blitz Targets Speed, Security, IP Networks

Foundry Network has released a blitz of products, including high-speed switches, security products, and acceleration devices for Web services and IP networks.

It expanded its ServerIron GT E-series family of application and traffic management switches with what it calls the industry's only purpose-built and expandable high-density 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet switch. The ServerIronGT E2404 switch supports 24 ports of Fast Ethernet and 4 ports of Gigabit Ethernet, and is designed for Fast Ethernet server farm environments that require Gigabit network connectivity with capacity for future growth.

ServerIronGT E2404 will be available in February 2005.

Foundry also announced a family of web accelerators designed to optimize the delivery of web-enabled applications and to scale web server farms and applications. The new ServerIronSA accelerators combine SSL acceleration with high-performance web content compression to maximize application performance and bandwidth utilization.

The combination of a ServerIronSA accelerator and ServerIron application switch provides a highly scalable traffic management solution for server farms supporting a mix of web and non-web IP applications to deliver optimized performance, robust security, high availability and business continuity.
