Radware, a leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that its Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions - AppDirector®, Alteon® and Alteon VA™ are qualified for interoperability with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Offering multiple qualified ADC solutions provides customers with the flexibility in selecting and deploying the best-fit ADC solution to fully obtain Exchange Server 2010 services with maximum availability, scalability, performance and security.
Radware ADC and Exchange 2010 solutions work together to help ensure that Exchange 2010 customers enjoy the resiliency, efficiency and scalability necessary to achieve an improved quality of experience. Key features offered by Radware’s ADC solutions include:
• Advanced health monitoring used to avoid system down-time;
• Advanced traffic management to deliver a best of breed subsystem;
• Acceleration to optimize QoE and offload critical resources from CAS servers;
• “Pay-as-you-Grow” scalable throughput using what is necessary only when needed.
Customers will experience a highly scalable and available unified messaging and communication infrastructure which will help to avoid system downtime and provide the fast response time. Using Radware’s ADC advanced health monitoring feature to manage the Exchange 2010 advanced messaging functionality will help enable customers to easily validate the availability and response time of those resources, as well as deliver seamless load balancing, redundancy and persistency capabilities.
The inclusion of service acceleration through compression, caching and SSL termination to Exchange users which offloads critical resources from the CAS servers, deliver faster response time, enables smaller CAS arrays to decrease capital and operational expenditures. Finally, based on a pay as you grow model, both of Radware’s ADC solutions ensure long term investment protection facilitating the incremental growth demanded by today’s businesses.
“Exchange 2010 helps organizations of all sizes lower IT costs, boost user productivity and better manage risk,” said Ian Hameroff, group product manager of Exchange partner marketing at Microsoft Corp. "Products such as Radware’s ADC solutions offer capabilities which can help accelerate how our customers realize these benefits from delivering the business communications tools their employees rely on every day."
“With the evolving networking landscape, business requirements are becoming more onerous in terms of needs and costs creating unnecessary concerns,” stated Yossi Vardi, Vice-President Business Development, Radware. “The use of Exchange 2010 with Radware ADC solutions is an ideal approach, and Exchange customers moving towards a hybrid or virtualized environment can benefit from our ADC solutions, which have integrated virtualization capabilities and, thus, can easily facilitate the transition.”
