A10 Networks Raises the Bar with New AX Series Application Delivery Controllers

AX 1030, 3030 and 5200-11 Include New Generation Hardware to Deliver Performance, Value and Efficiency over Competitors

SAN JOSE, CA, October 4, 2011 -- A10 Networks™, the technology leader in Application Networking, today unveiled new models in its flagship AX Series Application Delivery Controller (ADC) family, delivering the highest performance in their respective categories and providing comprehensive application focused capabilities for Server Load Balancing, IPv6 Migration and Virtualization projects. The new AX Series models offer faster performance, increased energy efficiency and greater value across all price ranges and form factors versus competitors.

The new AX Series models include A10's innovative 64-bit Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) with a scalable shared memory parallelism architecture that leaps the competition in scalability and flexibility.

"Our new AX Series platforms include the latest processor technology from Intel, combined with our highly scalable ACOS to deliver the industry's highest connections per second (CPS) in compact form factors," said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "Enterprise and Service Provider customers are increasingly choosing A10 over incumbents due to the AX Series' rich feature set, flexibility, performance and overall value as we continue to reduce the cost per connection with our new AX Series models."

"As a Managed Hosting provider, Peak Hosting must provide multi-tenancy for customers with the ability to manage their load balancing needs directly without sacrificing performance, scalability and availability," said Jeffrey Papen, CEO at Peak Hosting. "After evaluating competing platforms, no solution could match A10 Networks' new AX 5200-11 Application Delivery Controller (ADC), which sets the bar with 128 ADC instances and over four million Layer 4 connections per second. With the ability to centrally manage and scale a cluster of eight units for eight times the performance with a Virtual Chassis (aVCS) configuration, no vendor can match the flexibility, performance, savings and peace of mind that A10 Networks provides."

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), Multi-tenancy and more.

The new AX Series models are available this month.
