Citrix NetScaler MPX 5500 Enterprise Edition - Product Details
The MPX 5500 brings the advanced, high-performance NetScaler MPX architecture within reach of smaller enterprises for the first time ever. Best known for accelerating and securing the world's largest consumer web applications and cloud-based services with its high-end models, the newly-expanded NetScaler MPX product line now meets the price-performance demands of enterprises of all sizes. The NetScaler MPX 5500 provides the same rich feature set available in high-end NetScaler MPX solutions, but at a price point that is more advantageous to smaller enterprises. It also provides the perfect complement to the newly announced NetScaler VPX virtual appliance, bringing maximum deployment flexibility to the broadest range of customers.With its market leading price-performance, NetScaler MPX is ideal for organizations requiring enterprise-class application security, acceleration, availability and offload capabilities, but faced with increasing budget constraints and limited data center capacity. Because they are based on standard Intel hardware, NetScaler MPX appliances also make it easy for customers to add new capabilities in software as they are released, allowing them to scale NetScaler performance as their application needs expand without complex and expensive hardware upgrades.The NetScaler MPX 5500 is based on multi-core Intel processors, making them ideal for running multiple features concurrently while maintaining maximum application performance. Such high capacity processing enables IT organizations to simplify their infrastructure by consolidating multiple single-function devices, such as load balancers, application firewalls and SSL VPN gateways, into a single NetScaler MPX appliance. In addition to saving money, this enhances corporate environmental initiatives by creating a smaller total footprint in the datacenter, while significantly reducing overall power and cooling requirements.
