Array Networks ADC Delivers Unrivaled Price-Performance for Customers Adopting 2048-bit SSL Acceleration
MILPITAS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking,
today announces that its popular APV5600 application delivery controller
now supports even higher levels of SSL performance. Leveraging
advancements in SSL hardware acceleration, the APV5600 now supports up
to 25,000 2048-bit SSL transactions per second. Moreover, these
performance improvements do not affect the price of the APV5600, which
now offers the lowest cost 2048-bit SSL TPS on the market. By enhancing
SSL performance on the APV5600, Array is helping customers that need to
cost-effectively support increasing demand for secure transactions and
the increased computing demands of 2048-bit security.
The 2048-bit SSL is the new standard for secure web transactions,
application and sessions. The standard is more secure; however it is
also five times more compute-intensive as compared to 1024-bit
encryption. Since enterprises and service providers cannot afford to pay
five times more to support a growingnumber of users, there is a
pressing need for affordable 2048-bit SSL acceleration.
With the Array APV5600, a customer supporting 25,000 1024-bit SSL
transactions per second can continue to rely on a mid-priced platform to
support the same number of transactions on the new 2048-bit standard. In
contrast to the APV5600, ADCs from competing vendors cost up to twice as
much and deliver far less. As an example, mid-range solutions from other
vendors typically top out at 15,000 2048-bit SSL transactions per second.
"Much of our recent application delivery controller business is directly
attributable to enterprises and cloud service providers needing
high-performance yet cost-effective 2048-bit SSL acceleration," said
Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks (News - Alert). "The APV5600 is
becoming one of our strongest selling products due to its mix of
cutting-edge technology, scalability, reliability and affordability."
In addition to the now more powerful APV5600, Array also supports
customers with a range of SSL acceleration capacity needs. With the
APV10650 which supports up to 70,000 SSL transactions per second (2K)
and the APV2600 which supports up to 5,000 SSL transactions per second
(2K) Array customers can achieve maximum price-performance and ROI for
any size deployment.
"SSL acceleration is an area where Array has historically been strong,"
said Paul Andersen, director of marketing for Array Networks. "The
customer success stories for Array's latest generation APV Series
application delivery controllers are stacking up, and I look forward to
sharing them in the coming weeks and months."
