Coyote Point Adds UDP Support to Equalizer 5.0

Santa Clara, CA-Coyote Point Systems, Inc., the price/performance leader in Internet traffic management technology, announces a UDP-enabled upgrade of Equalizer, the companys flagship load balancing appliance. Coyote Point will be exhibiting at ISPCON in San Jose Nov. 8-10, Booth 3602.

Equalizer 5.0, which ships Nov. 15, will provide failover and high availability for WAP devices and network-attached storage devices. Coyote Point is partnering with wireless hardware and software vendor Infinite Technologies to develop a complete WAP server clustering solution, and with serverless storage software vendor CrosStor to develop advanced high availability functions for network-attached storage devices.

Equalizer 5.0 will also feature a revamped user interface, enhancing the ease of use of Coyote Points industry-leading reporting features included in the base price of every Equalizer-a browser-based, real-time display of server and cluster performance. In December, Coyote Point will offer a gigabit interface option on a new high-end model, Equalizer 550, enabling bandwidth at up to 1,000,000 megabits.

High Availability for WAP Sites

Allan Carter, Vice President of Marketing for Infinite Technologies, said, "The demand for more advanced high availability and high performance products such as Equalizer 5.0 indicates just how serious customers are about building reliable WAP infrastructure. This is further evidence that WAP adoption is expanding. We look forward to working with Coyote Point to meet our customers needs for effective WAP traffic management."

Pioneering UDP Load Balancing

"In the past three years, load balancing has been a major factor in Web companies ability to set new performance standards even as Web traffic increased geometrically," said Bill Kish, Coyote Points CTO. "As a company that helped pioneer load balancing technology, Coyote Point is proud to be at the forefront of the drive to develop equally high performance standards on the emerging wireless Web. In the next five years, as tens of millions of people are introduced to the Web through wireless devices, Coyote Point will again be blazing the high availability trail."
Serverless Storage Devices

Coyote Point is collaborating with CrosStor on a high-availability version of CrosStors serverless storage appliance software, CrosStor NAS. CrosStor NAS consolidates and simplifies network storage by moving complex storage operations off the server. Jeff Helthall, VP of Sales and Marketing at CrosStor, explained, "With enterprise storage requirements doubling yearly, NAS appliances must support high availability, scalability and a greater level of reliability for mission-critical business enterprises, regardless of size. We are pleased to be working with Coyote Point as we advance our high-availability solutions."
