MILPITAS, CA — March 3, 2011 — Array Networks Inc., a global leader in optimized application access, security and delivery, today announced the immediate availability of its next-generation APV Series application delivery controllers that offer 50-300% better performance than similarly configured and comparably priced alternatives from its closest competitor. Consisting of eight new purpose-built appliances, the Array APV Series offers an unbeatable combination of features, price and performance for enterprise and mid-market businesses.

Small to Medium-Size Enterprises

APV2600 and APV5600 appliances provide 100-300% better performance than similarly configured and comparably priced alternatives. With throughput in the range of 4 to 10 Gbps and supporting between 4 and 8M concurrent connections, mid-range APV Series appliances integrate high-end capabilities including SSL acceleration, TCP multiplexing, dynamic caching, selective compression and high-speed HTTP processing to raise the bar for mid-line, enterprise-class application delivery.

Large and Global Enterprises

APV6600, APV8600 and APV9600 appliances provide 50-200% better performance than similarly configured and comparably priced alternatives. They support up to 30Gbps throughput and 16M concurrent connections for seamless migration to cutting-edge traffic management and superior economies of scale. Accelerating data center modernization, high-end APV Series appliances consume 50% less power than comparable solutions and support future standards such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, IPv6, 2048-bit SSL encryption and extensible APIs for VMware integration and interoperability with proprietary and third party management products.

Distributed Data Centers, Small Enterprises and Mid-Market Organizations
The entry-level APV1600 appliances provide 300% better performance than similarly configured and comparably priced alternatives. It supports up to 2.3 Gbps throughput and 1M concurrent connections in a compact 1U appliance. Simple to deploy and manage, the APV1600 offers advanced load balancing and acceleration features for improved application performance without unnecessary complication. For mid-market companies with enterprise-class needs, the APV1600 sets itself apart by simultaneously meeting both technical and budgetary requirements.

“Mobility, ecommerce, private clouds and device proliferation will drive explosive growth in enterprise application delivery, making it critical for IT managers to select solutions that can cost-effectively scale to meet future demands,” said Lynda Stadtmueller, senior research analyst at Stratecast Partners. “The Array APV Series provides enterprises large and small with feature-rich, high-value products that bridge the gap between affordability and advanced application delivery.”

Forgoing custom silicon and instead relying on optimized Array SpeedCore™ software and 64-bit multi-core parallel processing, APV Series appliances achieve industry-leading scalability with price advantages that are passed directly to enterprise customers. Moreover, Array’s software-based approach creates a strategic advantage over competing solutions, enabling faster time to market and greater agility in responding to customer requirements and market transitions.

“I’m extremely pleased to announce Array’s new APV Series application delivery controllers,” said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. “With these advanced, high-value appliances, Array takes another step forward in meeting the next-generation requirements of enterprise customers who demand nothing short of guaranteed availability and security with maximum performance for business critical applications.”
