A10 Networks Prepares Web Sites for World IPv6 Day and Offers Unique IPv6 Web Site Testing for IPv4 Web Sites

IPv6 Day

Publishes Essential Tools Enabling Customers to Plan and Deploy an IPv6 Web Presence at No Additional Cost

SAN JOSE, CA, June 6, 2011 -- A10 Networks™, the technology leader in Application Networking, is powering portals, large media sites, web 2.0 companies, and ISPs for World IPv6 Day on June 8th (which effectively starts on June 7th due to time zone differentials). With standard support for Server Load Balancing Protocol Translation (SLB-PT) and native IPv6, A10's flagship AX Series Application Delivery Controller (ADC) family offers flexible choices for deployment. A10's AX Series ADCs are new generation server load balancers with an innovative 64-bit shared-memory and multi-process, multi-core, multi-CPU architecture that leaps the competition in performance, scalability, efficiency and flexibility. To support this effort A10 is publishing collateral to assist beyond World IPv6 Day and offer a unique opportunity for non-participants to test their IPv4 web sites live over IPv6.

"World IPv6 Day offers large scale IPv6 testing and data collection opportunities to a broad segment of our customers,” said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "While Service Providers have evaluated and enabled IPv6 on their networks, World IPv6 Day is clearly focused on the impact to Enterprises and Content Providers, and we are pleased to be the platform of choice for IPv6 deployments for this global event, extending our leadership in this market over the last few years."

AX Series solutions for World IPv6 Day and beyond include:

All AX Series platforms are dual-stack ready, ensuring the maximum flexibility with IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, enabling both native support and the most advanced IPv4/IPv6 translation capabilities. All AX Series features are available without extra licensing fees, including aFleX Layer 7 traffic scripting, aXAPI (RESTful XML management API) and more.

All features and functionality are available today. The recommended version of ACOS for the AX Series on World IPv6 Day is 2.6.1-SP2 or higher. For the latest information please visit the link to the A10 Application Delivery Community web site or contact A10 Networks Support.
