Coyote Point Systems Launches Three Application Delivery Controllers for Data Centers, Mid-Sized and Large Enterprises

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2013) - Coyote Point Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class application delivery, load balancing and acceleration solutions, today announced the full commercial availability of three new Equalizer application delivery and load balancing appliances, the E470LX, E670LX and E970LX. These new mid-range application delivery controllers (ADCs) provide high-end performance at mid-range price points that most businesses can easily afford.

"Since 1998 Coyote Point has been a leader and innovator of load balancers and value-oriented application delivery appliances," said John Maddison, VP of Marketing for Fortinet. "With these new units introduced today, Coyote Point continues its tradition of leadership, clearly standing out as the value and performance leader for mid-sized businesses and now enterprise and data center customers."

These new LX ADCs replace Coyote Point's GX platform with improvements to memory, CPU performance, storage and network throughput. They have been built to take advantage of Coyote Point's award-winning EQ/OS 10 operating system to deliver class-leading performance, features and value.

High Performance for Mid-Sized and Large Enterprises

The Equalizer E470LX and E670LX are targeted at mid-sized businesses and enterprises that require secure environments for e-commerce and financial applications and can easily handle the intense demands of HTTPS transaction processing.

The E470LX provides 8.0 Gbps of layer 4 throughput, handles up to 179,000 layer 7 requests per second and 29,000 HTTPS transactions per second. Its performance numbers place the E470LX with the top-of-line units of other mid-range competitors at a significantly lower price point.

The E670LX includes two 10 gigabit SFP+ Ethernet ports for increased networking bandwidth and ups the performance to 12.0 Gbps of layer 4 throughput, handles up to 336,000 layer 7 requests per second and 42,000 HTTPS transactions per second. Additionally, the E670LX provides up to 2.5 Gbps throughput of compression, which significantly reduces bandwidth requirements for content-rich applications that rely heavily on services such as CSS and JavaScript.

Data Center Performance

The Equalizer E970LX features two 10 gigabit SFP+ Ethernet ports, dual hot-swappable power supplies, cooling assemblies and "lights-out" management for remote access of the unit. With 15.0 Gbps of layer 4 throughput, 420,000 layer 7 requests per second and 56,000 HTTPS transactions per second, the E970LX is the first Coyote Point ADC to be purpose built for high-performance data center and enterprise environments.

"The Equalizer E470LX, E670LX and E670LX are the first new product releases since Coyote Point's recent acquisition by Fortinet and represents Fortinet's commitment to the evolution of the Coyote Point brand, product line and its customers," said Michael Hayes, CEO for Coyote Point Systems. "By leveraging Fortinet's leadership in the network security space we will continue to deliver the best application delivery solutions with the features and value that our customers have come to expect."
