Array Networks has announced availability of its new mid-range AVX7600 virtualized appliance. The AVX7600 can support both ADC and SSL VPN instances and supports up to 16 entry, eight small, four medium or two large virtual appliances per system. Support for pay-as-you-go pricing in quarter-capacity increments, with the option to mix and match virtual appliance sizes, allows cloud providers and enterprises to affordably scale customers or applications on a single high-performance appliance that simultaneously improves management efficiency and reduces requirements for space, power and cooling.
“Service providers and enterprises are moving towards cloud and virtualization technologies, but are faced with challenges in maintaining performance and cost-efficiency for networking functions. With the AVX7600, these customers get the best of both worlds – the agility and management efficiency of virtual appliances and the performance and scalability of dedicated appliances,” stated Paul Andersen, Director – Marketing, Array Networks.
The AVX7600 gives IaaS cloud providers several advantages. First, unlike other multi-tenant application networking solutions on the market, Array’s virtualized instances do not compete for shared hardware resources. As a result, cloud service providers can offer load balancing or secure access as infrastructure services with guaranteed high-performance SLAs. In addition, service providers do not need to rack and stack and manually configure stand-alone appliances for each new customer. New customers or workloads can instead be seamlessly spun up from an automated cloud management system. See more
