Best of Interop Grand Prize Winner
TEL AVIV, Israel & MENLO PARK, Calif. (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
Juniper recently announced that it would discontinue the DX application acceleration product line because it regards it as "insufficiently distinguishable" from competitive solutions, Network World Magazine - http://www.networkworld.com/news/2008/012208- juniper-app-acceleration-gear.html. (Due to its length, this URL may need to be copied/pasted into your Internet browser's address field. Remove the extra space if one exists.) Juniper acquired the DX product line through the acquisition of Redline in 2005. In head to head testing conducted by Network World Magazine, a four box Juniper DX solution failed to match the application acceleration delivered by a single Crescendo Networks Maestro AFE acceleration appliance, http://www.crescendonetworks.com/engsite/content/t1.asp?Sid=4&Pid=81.
"Leading analysts predict that the application delivery controller market will exceed three billion dollars in end user spending by the year 2012," said Adoram Ga'ash, CEO of Crescendo Networks. "Juniper's termination of the DX product line, only three years after they acquired this technology from Redline demonstrates a lack of long term commitment to the evolving application acceleration needs of their customers. Crescendo Networks recognizes that this product termination will place existing Juniper customers in a difficult position, and we are confident that our worldwide product replacement program will allow organizations to migrate seamlessly and painlessly from the DX solution to the best of class Maestro AFE platform."
