Foundry ServerIron GT EGC16P - Load balancing Product Details
Foundry Networks' innovative ServerIronGT E-Series switches provide high performance application switching, and enable highly secure and always-on server and application infrastructure. These switches deliver the convenience of an appliance without sacrificing high availability, port expandability and performance upgradeability to accommodate growth. The highly intelligent ServerIron application switches use information that resides beyond the traditional Layer 2 and 3 packet headers, deep in the application messages, to direct client transactions to appropriate servers. ServerIronGT E-Series switches maximize application availability and provide robust security by defeating many forms of Denial of Service (DoS), Virus and Worm attacks. These switches act as a reliable last line of defense for mission-critical server farms and applications. Superior performance delivered by Foundry's unique 3rd generation network processor technology helps defeat attacks without sacrificing application performance. By providing maximum availability, security and scalability to the network and application infrastructure, the ServerIron switches maximize the Return on Investment (ROI) on the servers and applications. The switches also simplify server farm management, which reduces operational costs and keeps the total cost of ownership (TCO) to a minimum.
