jetNEXUS and Hyper-V are the perfect marriage for guaranteeing availability and performance for the mission-critical applications at the heart of so many businesses.
Berkshire, UK (PRWEB UK) 18 April 2012
jetNEXUS, a leading provider of Application Delivery Control (ADC) technology has today announced the availability of its Accelerating Load Balancer Extreme (ALB-X) product for Microsoft Hyper-V. The virtual appliance running on Hyper-V machines offers advanced load balancing and acceleration features to deliver web applications reliably and securely.
jetNEXUS CEO Greg Howett comments, “jetNEXUS and Hyper-V are the perfect marriage for guaranteeing availability and performance for the mission-critical applications at the heart of so many businesses.”
In addition to providing advanced load balancing, the ALB-X delivers a range of next-generation acceleration features such as Content Caching, SSL Offload, Connection Pooling and Intelligent Compression. These are hugely beneficial when load balancing applications like Microsoft SharePoint, Outlook, Exchange 2010 and Terminal Services, ensuring an always exceptional end user experience.
Greg Howett continues, “Many organisations with Microsoft only environments are constrained in using the NLB Load Balancing feature which, in our experience, clients have found relatively limited in functionality. The ALB-X provides a simple, low risk path to a professional, feature-rich Application Delivery Controller that can still be easily supported within the Microsoft environment.”
The availability of jetNEXUS ALB-X on Hyper-V has exciting possibilities not just for end-users, but also for Hosters and Cloud Providers. In the words of Richard South, jetNEXUS’ Head of Cloud Strategy, “As the technology matures, we’re seeing increasing adoption of Hyper-V in both Public and Private Clouds. Whilst many Application Delivery Controllers are available as Virtual Appliances, Hyper-V has been very poorly served in this respect. Thanks to jetNEXUS, Hyper-V Cloud and Service Providers can finally offer their customers an advanced Application Delivery Controller on a SPLA basis, allowing them to maintain a complete Microsoft stack for applications like Exchange 2010 and SharePoint, both of which can reap enormous benefits from being deployed behind a jetNEXUS appliance”.
