The NetScaler MPX 17500, MPX 19500 and MPX 21500 platforms provide the fastest and most scalable performance in an appliance form factor, the most comprehensive virtual datacenter front-end feature set and maximum concurrent use of these features without restrictions for superior cloud computing operations. These platforms achieve a number of industry firsts in a compact 2U design. The models provide scalability from 20 Gbps to 35 Gbps and up to 50 Gbps of HTTP throughput and includes “Pay-as-you-Grow” to allow customers to upgrade from one model to the next with only a software license update. Additionally, the product design provides maximum performance across multiple features, including up to 12 Gbps of support for both compression and the Application Firewall modules, and 220,000 SSL VPN transactions per second.
The appliances offer the capability of running every functional module simultaneously including content switching, static and dynamic caching, content based routing and caching of XML and JSON, Web 2.0 and SSL server offload and global server load balancing with spillover; the later feature provides intelligent and granular failover between cloud computing sites for “cloud bridging.” For virtual computing session management, the appliances provide up to 52 million concurrent TCP connections and over 4.4 million HTTP requests per second. No other competitive offering provides the integrated set of services at this level of performance today.
