Radware's Alteon 5224 ADC Platform Sets New Industry Standard for Enterprise Market Application Delivery Needs

New 'future-proof' platform meets the essential load balancing and application acceleration needs with superior performance, on demand scalability, built-in 10GE ports and ADC virtualization capabilities

MAHWAH, New Jersey, January 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, announced that its Alteon® 5224 application delivery controller (ADC) for enterprises delivers the highest performance, on demand throughput scalability, highest and port density than any platform in its class, while offering the only 10GE connectivity and ADC virtualization capabilities.  

Radware's Alteon 5224 is an advanced ADC platform designed to meet the essential day-to-day load balancing and application acceleration needs of mission-critical applications for small and midsize enterprises with an innovative, on-demand platform capable of supporting up to 24 virtual ADC (vADC) instances with throughput between 1 Gbps and 16 Gbps and built-in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports.  

Also, Radware's Alteon 5224 offers carrier-grade reliability and delivers the broadest set of layer 4 through 7 services, including load balancing, traffic redirection, persistency, content modification, SSL offloading, caching, compression, bandwidth management, integrated security, link optimization and more.  

The Alteon 5224 meets the challenges of load balancing as well as advanced application delivery services with these industry-leading features:

  • Ultimate on-demand scalability up to 16 Gbps using the same platform - Delivering on demand throughput scalability starting at 1 Gbps and up to 16 Gbps, the Alteon 5224 meets the workload needs of practically any enterprise data center.  Its on-demand scalability enables customers to cost-effectively add more throughput, services and vADC instances using a simple software key update with no device replacement and even restart.  Moreover, the Alteon 5224 eliminates costly forklift upgrades and delivers greater assurance for capacity planning.  Unlike competitors' ADC solutions where a different platform is needed with each throughput requirement - it takes our competitors anywhere from two to five forklift upgrades to meet throughput requirements - the Alteon 5224 enables enterprises to benefit from the best investment protection against overspending.
  • Highest performance at its class - The Alteon 5224 offers the best performance in any layer 4 through 7 metric when compared to competitive platforms in its class.  This includes: 8 times more layer 4 connections per second with 480,000 CPS; 19 times more layer 7 transactions per second with 190,000 TPS; 3 times more concurrent connections (12M); and 7 to 11 times more SSL connections per second for 1024-bit and 2048-bit keys, with 35,000 and 11,200 SSL CPS respectively.  As a result, the Alteon 5224 enables enterprises to address traffic growth, ensure fast application response time and meet application service level agreements (SLAs).
  • The only enterprise-grade ADC with 10GE ports - With a total of 26 ports, the Alteon 5224 is the only ADC in its class equipped with 10GE ports, allowing connectivity to today's and tomorrow's networks.  So as businesses upgrade their networks and data center switches, the Alteon 5224 will be ready to handle new connectivity demands without the need to replace hardware while reducing operational costs.  In addition, the Alteon 5224 offers a unique feature not found on any other 4Gbps ADC on the market: two built-in 10GE SFP+ ports.  That means connections to existing 1GE-interface switches as well as to next-generation 10GE-interface switches are straightforward.  So as businesses upgrade their networks and data center switches, the Alteon 5224 will be ready to handle new connectivity demands without the need to replace hardware, reducing operational costs.
  • The only ADC virtualization solution for enterprises at any size - The platform is shipped with two embedded virtual ADC instances (vADC) that can be expanded on-demand to support up to 24 fully-independent vADCs.  Each vADC delivers the full feature set of a physical Alteon ADC and can be used in the future instead of additional ADC appliances to support new applications or more enterprise departments. What's more, Radware's 'pay as you grow' approach makes provisioning additional vADC instances easy, fast and at a fraction of the cost of adding a new physical ADC thanks to the use of on-demand software license that assures updates can be done without interrupting services.

With these features, the Alteon 5224 is a future-proof solution with the flexibly to add more ADC services as needed to serve more applications, more users and more business departments, with benchmark affordability.

"We use the Alteon 5224 solution to optimize both the user experience as well as to load balance most of our terminal server environments and to ease the administration and maintenance for the IT department.  Load balancing the terminal server environment gives us better control during application upgrades, allowing us to bring down servers for upgrade without stopping production.  The Alteon 5224 gives us the functionality we were looking for with the added benefit of being able to upgrade via a standard licensing agreement.  With the potential we see in Alteon, we plan to increase our competence on this product through training."
