Array Networks announces new mid-range ADCs

BANGALORE and MUMBAI, INDIA: Array Networks, a provider in application delivery networking, announced the immediate availability of its new mid-range APV3600 and APV3650 application delivery controllers (ADC).

Engineered to mitigate the burden placed on businesses by 2048-bit SSL encryption, the new APV series appliances support up to 25,000 2048-bit SSL transactions per second (TPS) and deliver low cost per SSL TPS on the market.

Standard features include a space-saving 1RU design, 10GigE interfaces, fiber and copper connectivity options and a suite of advanced ADC features including server load balancing, link load balancing, global server load balancing, L7/L4 traffic management, custom scripting, connection multiplexing, SSL acceleration, caching, compression, traffic shaping, IPv6 support, web application security and N+1 clustering.

2048-bit SSL encryption is the standard for all certificate-issuing authorities. While more secure than the previous standard, 2048-bit SSL is five times more compute-intensive. As a result, it is not uncommon for servers, load balancers and application delivery controllers to support only one fifth the SSL TPS they used to. The knock-on effect is that environments in which servers were sufficient may require load balancers and situations where mid-range ADCs was sufficient may require high-end ADCs all of which comes with a hefty price tag.

Array products, including APV, vAPV, AG, vxAG and EOS products use the company’s SSL stack to process all SSL, TLS and DTLS service traffic. Therefore, service traffic on Array products is not affected by this OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability.

Array APV3600 and APV3650 appliances support up to 25,000 2048-bit SSL TPS and maintain a mid-range price point while migrating to new, more secure standard.

Array’s APV3600 and APV3650 appliances perform functions such as certificate revocation lists (CRL) on top of TCP/IP in the kernel to ensure performance for all SSL related tasks. In addition, the new appliances support SSL features including server name indication (SNI), SSL inside and SSL bridging, multi-level authentication and in-flight certificate challenges.

Array APV3600 and APV3650 application delivery controller appliances are available immediately. The APV3600 is a 20Gbps appliance and the APV3650 is a 30Gbps appliance; both models ship standard with all Array application delivery networking features.
