New Equalizer Series E650si Is Powered by Breakthrough V8 System Software for Interactive Ajax-Based Ease of Use and Speedy Application Delivery

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Coyote Point Systems, Inc., the leader in Non-Stop, Affordable Application Availability™, announced today at Interop Las Vegas its new all-in-one, cost-effective Equalizer Series E650si, the first multi-function, multi-processor server application delivery and acceleration appliance to integrate best-of-breed features including Coyote Point's new Equalizer VLB for high application availability and acceleration of VMware virtual servers, SSL acceleration, HTTP compression and global server load balancing. With Coyote Point's E650si, virtual machine environments, Web servers and key applications run non stop at maximum speed, preventing lost revenues and lost productivity.

Coyote Point's E650si is providing application acceleration and high availability for the InteropNet environment at Interop Las Vegas, and Equalizer VLB has been selected as a Best of Interop 2008 finalist in the Network and Application Performance Optimization category.

The E650si is powered by Coyote Point's breakthrough Equalizer V8 system software for an unprecedented integration of rich functionality that is made easy to use through the application delivery industry's first interactive Ajax-based management interface. Primarily targeting the application availability, acceleration and ease-of-administration requirements of the small to midrange enterprise market, the V8-powered E650si is an enterprise-class Layer 4-7 load balancing and application acceleration appliance with 21 Gigabit Ethernet ports.

"Equipping the new E650si with our breakthrough V8 system software is all about ease of use and speed," said Richard De Soto, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Sales for Coyote Point. "Integrated on the E650si are on-board SSL acceleration and HTTP compression blades as well as our new Equalizer VLB application acceleration and availability, and Envoy global server load balancing software so customers can equip their Websites and critical applications for enterprise-grade accelerated performance and non-stop operations at a fraction of the cost of pay-per-option systems from other vendors. The E650si allows our customers to guarantee the uptime, complete business continuity and maximum speed of their virtualized environments and mission-critical business applications."

With performance up to 100-percent faster than Coyote Point's award-winning E350si, the new Equalizer E650si is capable of delivering up to 12 million concurrent connections.

The E650si integrates capabilities, including:

--  Equalizer VLB to accelerate and ensure the availability of
    applications running on VMware Infrastructure®.
    
--  Built-in blades for SSL Acceleration and HTTP Compression to reduce
    the server overhead associated with encrypted transactions and bring down
    bandwidth costs.
    
--  Envoy Geoclustering for global server load balancing so almost any
    application can work natively for instant failover to a back-up data
    center.
    
--  Interactive, Ajax-based management interface, so that the typical
    systems administrator can readily install, configure and maintain an
    Equalizer Series system.
    
--  Non-stop application availability at levels of up to 99.999% uptime.
    
--  Affordable acceleration and scalability for clusters of up to 512
    servers.
    
--  Out-of-the-box support for Microsoft Sharepoint servers, Microsoft
    Outlook Web Access, Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, Microsoft and other database
    servers.
    
--  Improved  "green factor" for data centers by enabling reduction of
    servers by 20 to 40 percent.
