Array Networks debuts new TMX family of Application Front End (AFE) appliances.

Array Networks, a provider of secure application deployment appliances for Global 2000 companies, today announced the debut of its TMX family of Application Front End (AFE) appliances, which provide a broader, more cost-effective range of options for accelerating and streamlining application delivery and website content. Designed to accommodate the needs of enterprises of all sizes, the TMX family also features a number of performance enhancements in link load balancing, monitoring/reporting, network address translation, port forwarding, and disaster recovery.

"The unveiling of this new family of Application Front End appliances allows us to take all of the capabilities we have provided to our Global500 customers and make them available for smaller deployments, thereby expanding our market reach," said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. "Each product provides an exceptional application performance enhancement, and ROI. But even more, the Array Networks "pay-as-you-grow" pricing policy allows users to buy just the features they need today, then upgrade in the future simply by obtaining a software license key."

Unlike single-purpose data networking systems built on disjointed point technology such as separate load balancers, caching and compression systems, and SSL accelerators, the TMX family provides a complete, integrated solution. TMX family of products uses the latest and most advanced traffic management OS available, and all appliances feature tightly coupled Layer 4-7 server load balancing, high-performance caching, Webwall security, dynamic content compression, link load balancing and clustering. And to further increase performance, they also employ Array Networks' exclusive SpeedStack technology that eliminates redundant TCP/IP processing.

New features available in the TMX family include a variety of enhancements that improve run-time operations, availability, security, and management. Improvements include policy based routing, new pre-configured and custom reporting, static NAT capability, synchronized multi-site disaster recovery, port/link redundancy, URL rewrite and flexible application firewall rules.

The initial members of the new TMX family of products include the TMX1100, TMX2000 and TMX3000 appliances.

The TMX1100 is a replacement for Array's existing low end product, (TM-C), with increased performance for the same price. The TMX2000 aimed at budget conscious customers, goes up to 100 megabits of throughput, and provides over twice the performance of the largest TM-C configured product. The TMX3000 is aimed at the larger customer with Gigabit throughput and extended port support, providing significant increase in performance and connectivity in a space-saving compact form.

The TMX product family is designed for easy integration with existing technology as well as easy replacement of legacy network devices. The products are easy to install, offering both an easy-to-use web-based interface called Array Pilot and a command-line interface.
