Zeus Technology and Sun Microsystems have announced a partnership to deliver Zeus’ Application Delivery Controller deployed on Sun’s latest CoolThreads and x64 systems hardware running the Solaris 10 operating system.
The new offering represents an entirely new level of scalability and performance for traffic management systems, with the combined Sun hardware and ZX software solution able to outperform most dedicated hardware appliances, while at the same time offering an unparalleled ability to manage application traffic even XML – using traffic scripting. Large enterprises, service providers, and online media companies will use the solution to deliver high-performance, reliable applications that meet service level agreements while minimizing operational costs.
Paul Brennan, chairman of Zeus Technology, said: This partnership is an excellent opportunity to bring the benefits of ZX to a broader market. Sun leads the industry in both price and performance, and running our award winning software on these platforms provides a robust, flexible application traffic management solution that can evolve to meet growing business needs.
