(PRWEB) September 11, 2007
Elfiq Networks is proud to announce two new models of its Link Load Balancer appliances built on a next generation hardware platform named the E Series.
The Elfiq LB-1500E is a new rackmount entry-level Link Load Balancer supporting up to 8 links and 75 Mbps of throughput. It supports hardware LAN failover and requires less than 25W of power consumption. More than competitively matched and priced, the LB-1500E redefines the entry-level playing field because it also supports Elfiq's highly praised SitePathMPTX technology for firewall/VPN resilience and GeoLink geographical link load balancing.
The Elfiq LB-4000E is designed for datacenters with 8 gigabit ports (copper) and 2 SFP fiber connectors in a compact 1U design. It is licensed with two virtual instances (up to five) of the Link Load Balancer and has three pairs of programmable LAN failover ports. With this new powerful product, customers will be able to handle over a gigabit per second of throughput, meeting the demand of top data centers around the world.
"The exciting new E Series models are based on the Elfiq enhanced hardware platforms to bring a greater performance/price value and advanced functionalities like the LAN failover in the market place. Because of Elfiq's unique transparent operation, the LAN failover allows traffic to pass through the Elfiq unit even if it is turned off. More E series models will be launched in 2008 to continue in our efforts to supply our customers with leading products." said Jean Pascal Hebert, Vice-President Business Development of Elfiq Networks.
The Elfiq LB-1500E and LB-4000E models will be available for shipping on September 28th 2007.
The Elfiq Link Load Balancer implementation is by far the simplest on the market. No IP address migration or any change to the firewalls/routers are required. The Elfiq Link Load Balancer guarantees optimal access for your network and applications for business continuity, while optimizing your multi-homed network throughput. Advanced functionalities like geographic load balancing and VPN multiplexing make it a key element of disaster recovery projects and ensure maximum availability to the enterprise's IP services.
