Coyote Point Systems Releases EQ/OS 10 Enterprise-Class Application Delivery Architecture

New Advanced Application Delivery Controller Software Platform Offers Customers Enhanced Features and Superior Performance

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Coyote Point Systems, a leading provider of application delivery and acceleration solutions, today announced the release of the new EQ/OS 10 software platform. EQ/OS 10 is a purpose-built, enterprise-class application delivery architecture that leverages advances in networking and processor technologies to provide a scalable, extensible and maintainable foundation for future generations of Coyote Point products.

The EQ/OS 10 platform provides a unifying technology platform that delivers comprehensive features and capabilities to solve application and network challenges. The new OS showcases significant improvements in connectivity, speed, availability, security and management. Release candidates are now available on the new EQ/OS 10 architecture for the GX line of Equalizer™ of Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), Equalizer OnDemand™ Virtual ADC and Envoy™ Global Server Load Balancer (GSLB).

"The networks that deliver applications are becoming increasingly more complex," said Bill Kish, Coyote Point's Alpha Coyote and CTO. "Businesses require higher levels of security, more efficient processing, acceleration technologies and the guarantee of 100% application availability. EQ/OS 10 was designed not only to meet those requirements but to create the foundation for future innovations in application delivery and acceleration."

Key benefits of EQ/OS 10 include:

EQ/OS 10 offers a comprehensive multi-level application availability approach allowing network administrators to eliminate single points of failure and deliver maximum performance. This includes advanced cluster level application availability probing, improved redundant fault tolerant configurations, multi-data center redundancy with Global Server Load Balancing and redirects to internal or external redirect resources.

EQ/OS 10 has a broader networking feature set that provides more administrative flexibility. Features like full IPv6 support and advanced VLAN configuration options make it even easier to fit Coyote Point solutions into existing networks.

The new OS has been specifically tuned and optimized to serve specific application content. Enhanced offloading capabilities increase the efficiency of communication within the application delivery environment that contributes to dramatic increases in application performance.

The EQ/OS platform architecture is security hardened to help thwart attacks, while enhanced management access offers visibility and control of application delivery. The secure transaction offloading and processing engine now offers simplified management and higher performance. EQ/OS 10 is optimized to provide efficient processing of SSL keys, including 2048-bit keys now being utilized for enhanced security.

The new comprehensive tool kit allows customers to choose between a GUI and CLI management interface. Interactive on-screen objects and detailed graphical reporting simplifies the installation and management of Equalizer ADC products.

Coyote Point products based on EQ/OS 10 are available through Coyote Point's distribution and value-added reseller partners. Contact Coyote Point at 1-877-367-2696 or for more information.
