Cisco launches new application-delivery products

Cisco Systems has announced products designed to speed up and improve application delivery over networks.

Its new Application Control Engine (ACE) 4710 Appliance, currently shipping at US$15,995, will accelerate applications for end users and reduce costs by limiting data center power and cooling requirements, said George Kurian, general manager of Cisco's application-delivery unit. The product is designed for small and midsize businesses and will support up to 2Gbit/sec. of application traffic, as well as 50 virtual devices from a single application.

Ultimately, it can help increase web application performance by several times, Cisco said in a statement.

Also shipping is a new Cisco Wide Area Applications Services (WAAS) Mobile software package that consists of server software for $5000 and 25 concurrent user licenses for $8750, Cisco said. Larger concurrent-user licenses are also available.

WAAS Mobile provides application acceleration for TCP-based applications in the WAN used by mobile or remote workers, Kurian said.

A new Application Profiling Service offers custom support to customers to help them profile the performance of various applications and come up with recommendations on technology that can improve performance.

Affiliated Computer Services Inc. in Dallas said it has deployed both the Cisco WAAS and ACE internally and plans to deploy the portfolio for its integration customers. The products can be integrated into existing points throughout a network to optimise a broad range of applications, regardless of where they are stored, said Tom Gibson, strategic business unit executive at Affiliated Computer Services.

Cisco also announced that it has validated the software performance over a network to support applications from Microsoft, Oracle, SAP AG and BEA Systems.
