Coyote Point Equips Resellers to Address Growing Demand for Affordable Load Balancing

Coyote Point Arms Its Channel Partners With Workhorse E250si Load Balancer -- Priced at Just $2,495 -- to Offer Affordable Quality and Performance to Mid-Market Datacenters

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - Coyote Point Systems, Inc., the leader in advanced load balancing and application acceleration for the mid-market, announced reduced pricing for its Equalizer Series E250si, a highly reliable and customer-proven Layer 4 load balancer. The E250si, Coyote Point's solution for small and mid-sized data centers that require an affordable and easy-to-use solution, is now available through Coyote Point's authorized resellers at a suggested retail price of just $2,495, which includes one year of maintenance support -- a 40-percent price reduction.

To capitalize on the growing demand in the broad mid-market for entry-level load balancing systems, Coyote Point will back its resellers with field-level sales and technical assistance. Coyote Point is moving to arm its channel partners to compete and win in this rapidly growing segment of primarily first-time customers who require affordable, performance-oriented and easy-to-use load balancing systems.

"Recently, low-cost Layer 4 load balancers have entered the marketplace," said Michael Hayes, President of Coyote Point Systems. "We have reduced the price of our entry-level E250si to arm our resellers in competing against alternative vendors that offer low-priced, but questionable-quality load balancing technologies with marginal track records in actual customer deployments. Coyote Point has always taken great pride in helping our resellers deliver the highest-quality, most reliable solutions at affordable prices."

"Coyote Point has a decade-long tradition of delivering the right products and programs to help our reseller meet the needs of their customers," said Bill Kish, CEO/CTO and "Alpha Coyote" for Coyote Point Systems. "We recently introduced our flagship E650si platform to meet the demand for affordable high-performance load balancing and application acceleration. Now, we have re-priced our workhorse E250si load balancer to ensure that even the smallest datacenter has a high-quality, affordable solution to meet their needs."

With Coyote Point's E250si as an easy-to-use front-end, Web servers and key applications are always available and operating at maximum speed, preventing lost revenues and lost productivity. Coyote Point demonstrates proven experience in load balancing applications "out of the box," including any TCP/UDP-based Web application, business application or network server running on rack mount or blade servers, Email servers, portal servers, ERP applications, File Transfer (FTP) servers, Windows terminal services, Microsoft application servers, virtual servers and applications and many others.

With throughput capacity equivalent of up to 40 T1s, the E250si scales to support more than 1000 servers. The E250si automatically directs traffic to the best available servers so users experience 100-percent availability of mission-critical applications. Administrators can make network and application changes with zero downtime. To ensure the highest levels of availability the E250si can be implemented in a fault-tolerant configuration with a redundant Equalizer in hot standby.

"Coyote Point Systems is the only load balancing system that worked for us, and we tested alternatives from Kemp Technologies and Barracuda Networks, which crashed repeatedly and simply did not function," said Neil Ghuman, IT Manager for More Power Racing, an online dealer of high-end gear for motorcycles, cars and trucks. "Our customers are performance freaks, and we need our website to run reliably at top speed. Coyote Point's Equalizer Series system is the ideal non-stop front-end for morepoweracing.com -- we set up the Equalizer in under one hour and Coyote Point's technical support has been excellent. The Equalizer has been great for us -- it accelerates the performance of our Microsoft IIS web servers, and it never goes down."

Pricing and Availability

Coyote Point's Equalizer E250si is available immediately through authorized Coyote Point partners. Suggested retail price is US $2,495, which includes one-year of maintenance support.
