CAMBRIDGE, UK – 7 September 2010 – Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (Application Delivery Controller) company, today announces the general availability of the Zeus Elastic Application Delivery (ZEAD) platform. The solution enables organizations to deliver fast, secure and available applications across any combination of Physical, Virtual and Cloud infrastructures.

ZEAD platform allows IT professionals to accelerate the speed of their online applications from a Cloud environment with tools for hybrid Cloud application delivery, Cloud bursting and balancing. Zeus is the only vendor offering a complete, fully integrated out-of-the-box application delivery platform operating within a virtualized infrastructure.

ZEAD platform includes three key components:

  • Zeus Traffic Manager – the fastest software application delivery controller on the market updated with two new modules – auto-scaling and real-time analytics. Auto-scaling allows IT professionals to add and remove back-end servers automatically for increased performance. Real-time analytics gives instant access to transactions so problems can be fixed quickly and easily.
  • Zeus Multi-Site Manager – provides full management control of configurations and policies for geographically distributed clusters of Zeus Traffic Managers from a single point to manage sites across multiple datacenters in different geographic locations.
  • Zeus Load Balancer – enables the creation of granular traffic management policies to make quick updates to websites according to the changing needs of the business.

Customer Rodrigo Lopez, head of external services at the European Bioinformatics Institute, comments, “The European Bioinformatics Institute is a not-for-profit organization committed to enabling the development of cutting-edge biotechnologies by providing vital online information to the scientific community. As such, ensuring our online services are consistently available at a low cost is vital to our success. Zeus Traffic Manager 7.0 will allow us to manage our expanding datacenter environment to cater for a growing European network. We will be testing and potentially deploying the new Zeus Multi-Site Manager as part of the Zeus Elastic Application Delivery platform to boost the performance of our websites. We will be able to see how our websites are performing all from one management dashboard, so we can spot and react to issues quickly and easily. We are looking forward to continuing to improve the services we offer scientists across the world, powered by the advanced web traffic management solutions offered by Zeus."

ZEAD platform is available on the widest range of hypervisors including VMware, Xen, KVM and OracleVM. It is also available on most of the leading Cloud Computing platforms including Amazon EC2, Logicworks, Joyent, Voxel and Rackspace.
