Array Networks announces the immediate availability of three new fifth-generation application delivery controller (ADC) appliances. Running on Array’s recently released Version 8.6 software, the entry-level APV1600 and APV2600 and the mid-range APV3600 is claimed to achieve industry-leading Layer-4, Layer-7 and SSL benchmarks for throughput and connections per second – delivering up to 300% better performance without increasing prices for Array customers.
- APV1600 Layer-4 and Layer-7 throughput increased by 50% to 3.7Gbps and 3Gbps respectively. Layer-4 connections per second increased by 300% to 280K, while Layer-7 requests per second increase by 100% to 200K. Full-featured list price beginning at $8,495.
- APV2600Layer-4 and Layer-7 throughput increased by 100% to 18Gbps and 13Gbps respectively. Layer-4 connections per second increased by 50% to 360K, while Layer-7 requests per second increased by 100% to 200K. Full-featured list price starting at $13,995.
- APV3600Layer-4 throughput increased by 100% to 37Gbps. Layer-4 connections per second increased by 33% to 1M, while Layer-7 requests per second increased by 20% to 635K. 2048-bit SSL TPS increased by 40% to 35K. Full-featured list price from $28,995.
The APV1600, 2600 and 3600 support up to 2100, 5500 and 35,000 SSL TPS respectively without the need for additional-cost hardware acceleration modules – performance that is between 4-to-6 times better than similarly priced alternative ADC solutions.
“As a pioneer in integrated traffic management and application delivery, we are pleased to launch the fifth generation of our APV Series products,” said Paul Andersen, Senior Director of Marketing at Array Networks. “While recent efforts have seen Array expand its portfolio of cloud and security-focused solutions, we remain committed to leading the way for both physical and virtual load balancing and application delivery solutions.
