…Release 4.0 Features Fully Integrated Third-Generation Cache to Help Organizations Simplify Data Centre…

London, September 24, 2004 — Redline Networks today announced the general availability of release 4.0 with fully-integrated 3G Cache™. The new release allows organisations to extend the full potential of caching to sophisticated enterprise applications previously served by less flexible first- and second-generation approaches. Redline's third-generation approach to server side caching provides organisations utilising enterprise applications—PeopleSoft, SAP, Siebel, Oracle, and those based on Websphere—with an easily deployable, high performance, fully-integrated solution that dynamically modifies cached content.

3G Cache enables Redline to further simplify the data centre by eliminating the need for additional application servers, Web servers, and other Web tier point products. Previous generations of cache solutions could not effectively discriminate between cacheable and non-cacheable content. With 3G Cache tightly integrated with the Redline OverDrive™ user API, IS Managers now have the ability to differentiate between cacheable and non-cacheable data and treat the cacheable data with customisable parameters.

"By seamlessly integrating third generation caching into its existing platform, Redline is again positioned to define the next generation of application front ends (AFE's) for Web applications," said Lynn Nye, Founder and President, APM Advisors. "Redline again delivers on its promise and continues to pressure the existing server load balancing vendors, like F5 Networks (Nasdaq:FFIV), into making catch-up product releases."

With 3G caching, Redline is extending its technology leadership position by delivering a complete, integrated solution optimized for sophisticated enterprise Web applications. The Redline platform offers compression, server load balancing, SSL termination, application security, Redline OverDrive™, and third-generation caching in one appliance and delivers up to 1Gbit/sec of outbound data. Test results show a 60 percent reduction in latency and a dramatic increase in server capacity.

"Adding third-generation integrated cache to our platform and combining this offering with Redline OverDrive and our other unique capabilities, takes Redline to a new level of payoff for the critical Web tier between the browser and the data centre," commented Craig Stouffer, vice president, marketing, Redline Networks. "With Redline's 3G Cache, we extend the cache value proposition into new territory and continue to execute on our promise to reduce the sheer number of devices and network upgrades required for the successful deployment of Web applications."

Product Availability
Redline release 4.0, the newest version of Redline's operating system, is available for immediate delivery on the Redline E|X series. The 3G Cache is available worldwide.
