At Interop, Crescendo Networks showed off its new HyperScale architecture, which enables IT administrators to expand their application delivery controller environments on demand and aggregate multiple ADCs to support up to 100G bps of throughput.
Crescendo Networks is looking to enable data center administrators to scale
their application delivery capabilities in an on-demand fashion, making it
easier and more cost-efficient to handle the growing Web traffic.
At the Interop show in Las Vegas,
Crescendo officials on April 27 unveiled their new HyperScale technology, which
will be an option on all of the company's AppBeat DC CN-7000 series ADCs
(application delivery controllers). HyperScale will begin appearing as an
option in June.
According to Crescendo officials, HyperScale will enable IT
administrators to handle increases in Web traffic by adding more AppBeat
DC units rather than by replacing existing
devices or buying expensive blade solutions that might have more limited
With HyperScale, businesses can handle up to "100GB
throughput by aggregating controllers with smaller capacities," the
company said, and then creating as many virtual clients as needed from the pool
of resources. New AppBeat units are put into the logical pool of resources
Crescendo officials said they are planning to upgrade
HyperScale to allow for unlimited scalability to handle the expected explosive
demand for throughput.
"In today's IT environment, exponentially increasing Web
load is a reality that cannot be resolved simply by linearly adding more
servers and load balancers," Crescendo CEO
Adoram Ga'ash said in a statement. "The combination of data center
consolidation and virtualization, cloud computing, and sheer growth in online
services presents increasing challenges in delivering predictable performance
for end users. ... HyperScale future-proofs Web-based businesses by offering a
new architecture design that eliminates the need to discard existing ADC
ADCs were a focus of the Interop show. F5 Networks showed off
designed to enable enterprises to extend their data center
infrastructures into cloud computing environments.
The Dynamic Services Model includes the latest version of F5's
Big-IP software, new ADC hardware, an
upgraded operating system and a virtual ADC
