SAN JOSE, Calif. -- NetScaler, the global leader in accelerated application delivery systems, today announced an important new product enhancement that will make it easier for Global 2000 customers to accelerate the performance of all critical business applications, regardless of protocol, client type or user location. The new technology will enable enterprises to boost the performance of both web and non-web applications, without requiring network administrators to have knowledge of either the applications or the users connecting to them. Unlike products that accelerate only simple web applications or are limited to users in certain offices, NetScaler is the only solution on the market that can accelerate the performance of "any application, to any user, anywhere" by up to 5x or more(1).

Trends such as data center consolidation and the geographical dispersion of users have negatively impacted application performance, leading to a spike in demand for products that speed the secure delivery of critical applications to users around the world. While numerous products have appeared in the market to address this problem, most focus on accelerating only simple web applications or enhancing the speed of selected users in a controlled WAN environment. This ignores the reality that complex modern enterprise applications, even those with web front ends, use a variety of behind-the-scenes protocols, and are accessed from a wide range of locations. Competing products do not ease the delays caused by overloaded middleware and database systems, which are often a substantial contributor to slow application performance.

NetScaler was the first solution on the market to break this barrier by combining traditional load balancing with state-of-the-art application acceleration in a single, tightly-integrated networking device. With today's announcement, NetScaler raises the bar for application delivery once again with a powerful new technology called AppTune. Using AppTune, network administrators can quickly fine-tune the configuration of their NetScaler systems to match the unique attributes of each application they support. This additional tuning ensures the fastest possible delivery of all applications, regardless of protocol, client type or user location.
