－ePolicy TM：允許IT人員撰寫客製程式以控制應用流量。包括客製SLB方法，分析HTTP內容，SOAP，XML和 diameter protocols，接收，發送，分析和廢棄一般TCP和TCPS封裝，控制TCP連結，行使pattern matching 並記錄。
- IPv6: 獲得IPv6論壇IPV6 Ready計畫之金牌認證，以提供IPv4轉換至IPV6的支援，並提供IPv6及IPv4網路和客戶溝通管道。NAT64/DNS64允許IPv4客戶與IPv6伺服器溝通。SLB-PT/SLB-64可協助翻譯IPv4至IPv6之間的協定，以及DS-Lite允許將IPv4客戶流量導入IPv6網路中。所有8.4功能皆支援IPv4及IPv6。
- 獨立session控管: 可從應用流量中區隔出session ID，為session ID與伺服器之關聯建立mapping tables。獨立session控管可改善持續狀態和安全，同時加強應用效能。
- TCP 狀態化故障切換和其他企業級功能，包括N+1 HA串聯，role-based 管理和先進ACLs (SLB QoS) 以防止非客戶過度運用網路資源等。
- eCloudTM API: 為了將APV系列產品運用於企業級負載均衡，而結合安瑞科技實體及虛擬ADC與IaaS服務供應商之雲端管理系統。得以提供雲端服務商一個具彈性，script-based工具以便管理及監控安瑞ADC，無論是在IaaS或SaaS環境下的基礎建設一環，或是成為服務的一部分。
並且，安瑞的APV2600吞吐量也從4Gbps增至10Gbps。裝置在一個小巧，省電的1RU平台上，並擁有10GigE interfaces，高效2048以及4096-bit SSL加速，和先進的流量管理功能，APV2600可對中小企業提供最好的價值，而對IaaS雲端供應商則提供專屬的負載均衡服務。
Improved features, performance and pricing meet the technical requirements of 9 out of 10 enterprises at 50% the cost of brand name ADC vendors
MILPITAS, CA – March 5, 2013 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced the immediate availability of APV 8.4 for its full line of APV Series application delivery controllers. Engineered to meet the load balancing and application delivery requirements of small to medium-sized enterprises, APV 8.4 supports new advanced load balancing and application delivery features, unlocks increased performance across all APV Series appliances and introduces a pricing model that makes enterprise-class traffic management available at 50% the cost of brand name ADC vendors.
Moreover, the popular 1RU Array APV2600 now supports 10GigE connectivity to take advantage of increased throughput and SSL performance enabled by APV 8.4.
In addition to advanced server load balancing, link load balancing, GSLB, connection multiplexing, SSL acceleration, compression, caching, traffic shaping and application security, APV 8.4 introduces support for a range of next-generation application delivery features at no extra cost including:
ePolicy TM: Allows administrators to write custom scripts to control application traffic. Includes the ability to tailor SLB methods for real services, analyze the content of HTTP, SOAP, XML and diameter protocols, receive, send, analyze and discard generic TCP and TCPS packets, control TCP connections, perform pattern matching for text data and monitor and record statistics.
IPv6: Gold certified by the IPv6 Forum IPv6 Ready program to support migration from IPv4 to IPv6 and provide a means for IPv6 and IPv4 networks and clients to communicate. NAT64/DNS64 allows IPv4 clients to communicate with IPv6 servers. SLB-PT/SLB-64 enables protocol translation from IPv4 to IPv6 and DS-Lite allows IPv4 client traffic to be tunneled over IPv6 networks. All 8.4 features are supported for both IPv4 and IPv6.
Independent session controlling: Extracts session IDs from application traffic to build mapping tables for associating session IDs with real servers. Independent session controlling improves persistence and security while enhancing application performance.
TCP stateful failover and additional enterprise-focused features including N+1 clustering for high availability, role-based administration control and advanced ACLs (SLB QoS) for preventing overutilization of network resources by undesired clients.
eCloudTM API: Integrates Array’s physical and virtual ADCs with infrastructure service provider cloud management systems for the purpose of making APV Series appliances available to enterprises as a load balancing service. Gives cloud providers a flexible, script-based tool with which to manage and monitor Array ADCs, whether used as foundational infrastructure within IaaS or SaaS environments or as service offerings.
Tuned for Performance
APV 8.4 leverages Array’s 64-bit SpeedCoreTM architecture to extract more performance than ever from multicore, multiprocessor APV Series appliances. APV products now average 30% more throughput per appliance, giving enterprises significantly more performance and scalability for their application delivery dollar. For example, through extensive software tuning, entry-level APV1600 appliances now support 2.4Gbps throughput and high-end APV9650 appliances support over 80 Gbps throughput.
Moreover, throughput on Array’s APV2600 appliance has increased from 4 Gbps to 10 Gbps. Combining a compact, energy-efficient 1RU platform, 10 GigE interfaces, high-performance 2048 and 4096-bit SSL acceleration and advanced traffic management features, the APV2600 is a better value than ever for the small-to-medium sized enterprise and for the IaaS cloud provider looking to offer dedicated load balancing services.
Priced to Win
APV 8.4 combines robust enterprise features and industry-leading performance with revamped pricing, meeting the technical requirements of 9 out of 10 enterprise customers at 50% the cost of brand name ADC vendors. In addition, for providers seeking to offer load balancing as a cloud service, new pay-peruse business models are available that align infrastructure costs with customer demand to minimize risk and maximize profitability.
“I’m extremely pleased to announce release 8.4 for Array’s APV Series application delivery controllers,” said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. “Our goal is to help
startup, enterprise and cloud customers meet both their application delivery and their budget requirements. The features and performance introduced in release 8.4, along with revamped pricing for our APV Series physical and virtual appliances, are another step forward in executing this strategy.”
