End-to-End Acceleration Delivers Massive Performance Gains for PeopleSoft, SAP, Siebel and Oracle Web Applications

  • 25 August, 2004 16:25

<p>A message for concerned CIOs: Stop throwing servers at your Web applications right now!</p>
<p>+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++</p>
<p>Businesses frustrated with the performance of Web-enabled versions of PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, SAP, Siebel, Oracle and WebSphere have help at hand following today’s Australian launch of Web application acceleration solutions from Redline Networks.</p>
<p>Represented in Australia and New Zealand by Global Asset Systems, an enterprise appliance solutions specialist, Redline Networks’ solutions accelerate the performance and maximise the flexibility and scalability of Web-enabled enterprise data centres and Websites.</p>
<p>Redline’s enterprise appliances are purpose-built for end-to-end application acceleration and deliver immediate and substantial cost savings, and massive performance improvements. The Redline appliances can be installed within 30 minutes and require no changes to existing data centre infrastructure, applications or clients.</p>
<p>“The message we’re sending to frustrated CIOs and IT managers is to stop throwing multiple servers, load balancers and Web caches into their data centres in bid to improve Web application performance,” said Gordon Anthony, managing director of Global Asset Systems. “This only adds to data centre complexity, forces IT budgets to spiral out-of-control and delivers minimal performance gain. Meanwhile end users remain frustrated by slow download speeds, declining productivity levels and often unusable business critical applications.”</p>
<p>“Redline’s enterprise appliances overcome the performance, availability, security, management and flexibility challenges inherent within Web-enabled data centres. Processing power is offloaded from the server to the Redline appliance for optimised end-to-end application acceleration.”</p>
<p>“We’re seeing Redline customers running PeopleSoft, SAP, Siebel, Oracle and custom developed Web applications gain immediate benefits in the form of increased server capacity, faster downloads, significantly lowered costs, automatic application security, decreased bandwidth and rapid ROI,” Anthony said.</p>
<p>The Redline appliance sits between an organisation's firewall and its applications and storage, providing a consolidated platform capable of processing application data with the flexibility of a server, but at the price point, performance and throughput levels of a networking device.</p>
<p>“The appliance-based approach is a proven winner with enterprise IT departments, delivering excellent cost effectiveness while reducing data centre complexity and ongoing administration overheads,” Anthony said.</p>
<p>“The web application market is about to enter a boom phase as vendors force Web protocols onto their customers and broadband access increases. The Redline appliance is an ideal solution for businesses that have made the step to the Web or thinking of doing so.”</p>
<p>Customers
Enterprise customers span multiple industries ranging from automobile manufacturing to financial services, energy, pharmaceuticals, tourism and retailing. Users include abcNews.com, ESPN, GAP, Air France, Accor, Walt Disney, MSN, Condé Nast and Amadeus.</p>
