Foundry Powers Baidu

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Foundry Networks(r), Inc. (Nasdaq:FDRY), a performance and total solutions leader for end-to-end switching and routing, today announced that Baidu (Nasdaq:BIDU), the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, deployed Foundry's 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) LAN and application switching solutions to meet their current and future traffic demands. Baidu's extensive network currently handles up to 50 percent of Internet search activities throughout China.

After extensive testing, it was clear that Foundry's solutions delivered the performance needed to meet Baidu's current requirements, while also future-proofing its network and server farm infrastructure to incrementally scale with its constantly increasing traffic demands. Baidu is using Foundry's 10GbE high-performance switches for its connections between their network backbone and server farms. To maximize large-scale network and server performance, Foundry's application switches are leveraged for load balancing massive amounts of traffic between servers while protecting Baidu from malicious Denial of Service (DoS) attacks that may cause service disruption and compromise sensitive information and data.

"As the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, high availability and on-demand scalability are fundamental requirements for us," said Mr. JianGuo Liu, chief technology officer for Baidu. "Foundry's high-performance networking solution provides our business the performance we demand and easily supports our current traffic load with ample room for growth."
