H-Platform from Radware Increases Speed 250%, Setting New Industry Standard in Load Balancing and Global Fail Over Solution

The best just got better today when Radware unveiled the new H-Platform upgrade for its award winning IP Load Balancing family of products. The H-Platform uses the Intel i960Hd 75Mhz chip for the CPU's in all Radware load balancing products. Radware products are designed to load balance all IP traffic including cache, proxy and firewall traffic. With the H chip Radware is increasing the speed 250% over the former i960c CPU platform but not the price. Now ISP's and Enterprises can choose the industry leader to protect their mission critical applications at a highly affordable price.

"The H-Platform is designed to meet the increasing demands of ISP's and high volume commercial sites" stated Roy Zisapel, president of Radware Ltd. "It provides increased local and global load balancing performance while retaining the full IP Load Balancing feature set that our customers have come to depend on." Radware Load Balancers provide, scalability, optimization, fault tolerance and automatic failover and recovery to any IP Internet/ Intranet/ firewall or cache device farm.

With the H-Platform, applications like web, mail, database, cache, proxy and firewall farms can be easily managed and scaled to meet the needs of rapidly increasing and demanding on-line traffic. With competition increasing on the Internet every day, and web traffic doubling every 100 days, downtime could be fatal to customers who need 7x24 operation.

The original i960C CPU platform is already installed as the load balancer of choice in many Fortune 500 companies and major Internet Server Providers worldwide. With the introduction of the H-Platform, Radware is offering the original i960 at a reduced price starting at $7,340 for the Web Server Director Pro (WSD-Pro). H-Platform products are available now with prices starting at $15,280.
