Coyote Point Named Finalist for Best of Interop

New Equalizer VLB Recognized for High Application Availability and Acceleration for VMware Virtual Servers

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Coyote Point Systems, Inc., the leader in Non-Stop, Affordable Application Availability™, has been named a Network and Application Performance Optimization category finalist for Best of Interop Las Vegas 2008. Interop Las Vegas 2008 will be held April 27-May 2, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Visit Coyote Point at Interop Las Vegas 2008 in Booth #1953.

Coyote Point is being recognized for its new Equalizer VLB, which provides high availability and acceleration for VMware virtual servers. Equalizer VLB is initially being implemented on the new fully integrated Equalizer Series E650si platform. Equalizer E650+VLB enables businesses to accelerate and ensure the availability of applications running on VMware Infrastructure®. By effectively managing the distribution of virtual machines loads, Equalizer Series acceleration systems eliminate hot spots and the need to overprovision to handle load spikes. A significant fiscal impact is achieved through business continuity (non-stop availability), capital expense (fewer servers) and reduced operational expenses (power, cooling, and management).

Coyote Point is part of a select group of finalists in an award nomination process that saw nearly 200 submissions. The panel of judges, made up of award-winning editors from InformationWeek, selected the products they believe have the greatest potential to impact and advance business technology efficiencies. The winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held Tuesday, April 29, 2008 at 4:00 p.m.

"We are thrilled that our ground-breaking approach to enhanced virtualization through high application availability and acceleration is being recognized as a Best of Interop finalist," said Richard De Soto, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Sales for Coyote Point Systems. "With Equalizer VLB, data center managers can achieve non-stop business continuity of VMware Infrastructure, accelerated application performance and least-cost utilization of hardware resources."
