E|X 3250 Enterprise Application Processor Scores 9.5 on Scale of 10,

Earning Highest Marks Among 229 Products Reviewed in 2003

CAMPBELL, Calif., Jan. 26, 2004 – Redline Networks' E|X 3250 enterprise application processor earned the highest score among 229 enterprise products reviewed by InfoWorld Magazine's Test Centre during 2003.

Rating 9.5 on a scale of 10, the E|X 3250 out-scored all other enterprise products reviewed during the year, including other networking products from F5 Networks and Radware. The product scored perfect "10s" for implementation, innovation, interoperability and value.

Reviewer Logan Harbaugh said in his March 21, 2003, review, "This appliance provides an immediate return, substantially reducing network traffic and the load on servers that need to support SSL. It also speeds responses that clients will see, making customers happier. . . . The E|X 3250 stretches existing network and Web server resources by compressing HTTP data, consolidating Web server sessions and offloading SSL processing."

Specifically, the review praised the E|X 3250's SSL capability, noting that when the unit was deployed in InfoWorld's test site, "performing SSL transactions involving complex pages for several hundred clients resulted in a little better than 20 times improvement in response times" compared to using the same Web server alone without an E|X 3250.

Craig Stouffer, Redline vice president of marketing, said, "In its year-end review summary, InfoWorld editors said, 'The year in networking was not only about speeds and feeds but also about managing increasing volumes of application traffic and using the Internet to deliver corporate apps.' The E|X 3250 was designed precisely to address emerging New Data Center requirements – including scalability, flexibility and security – and we naturally are delighted that InfoWorld's Test Center staff has validated its merits."

The Redline E|X 3250, introduced in March 2003, is one of a family of network appliances that offloads I/O- and processor-intensive tasks from servers, performing data compression, TCP connection management, load balancing, request buffering, SSL processing and adaptive content processing of HTTP traffic. By acting as intelligent front-end processors for the enterprise applications, Redline products relieve servers of overhead and make the enterprise data center faster, more secure and less costly to run.
