Fortinet releases new application delivery controllers

For A/NZ Enterprise Data centres and web servers

Network Security vendor Fortinet has released three new application delivery controllers (ADCs) for enterprise datacentres and managed service providers in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

The US-based firm claimed they are designed to provide scalability and availability for Internet-based applications that reside in one or more data centres.

ADCs are said to optimise enterprise application environments. Fortinet claims he market evolved from the load-balancing systems that were specifically developed to ensure the availability and scalability of websites. Enterprises now use ADCs to optimise reliability, end-user performance, data centre resource use and security for a variety of enterprise applications.

Fortinet A/NZ director of engineering, Gary Gardiner, said the solution compliments the company’s existing product range.

“We deliver the performance and security that today’s businesses require with application delivery appliances that range from 2.7 Gbps of layer-4 throughput all the way up to 50 Gbps on our new top-of-the-line FortiADC-4000D.”

The firm said the new products (the FortiADC-1500D, FortiADC-2000D and FortiADC-4000D) represent an expansion of Fortinet’s ADC line-up that provides high performance and strong security for high-volume application environments while reducing overall total cost of ownership.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
