Crescendo Networks Reveals New Application Delivery Functionality for Cloud Computing and Virtualize

AppBeat™ DC’s virtualized ADC resources allow customers to allocate workload based on business needs; new elastic resource control optimizes server usage without sacrificing application SLAs


TEL AVIV, Israel & MENLO PARK, Calif. – May 4, 2009 – Crescendo Networks, Ltd., the recognized performance leader in accelerating and optimizing application delivery for Web properties, today announced new cloud computing and virtualized ADC (vADC) functionality for its AppBeat DC application delivery controller. With flexible, on-demand vADC resources and SLA-based (service level agreement) application control capabilities, Web properties, as well as private and public cloud infrastructures, can manage datacenter resources according to business needs. It also ensures end-user application service levels, and conserves server and energy costs for ultimate resource efficiency. These features are available with the Maestro™ CN-7000 Platform series, also announced today.


AppBeat DC’s new datacenter and cloud computing capabilities include:

Virtual ADC (vADC) for business-driven resource usage

AppBeat DC now offers virtual ADC partitioning, allowing all ADC resources to be divided into multiple, business-oriented segments. This enables ADC resources to be tailored to specific business needs, such as different applications in the same data center or multiple customers, each with different traffic and service level requirements.


Elastic Resource Control

AppBeat DC’s Elastic Resource Control maintains application service levels with the least amount of server resources. The end result is an efficient data center that consumes up to 30 percent less energy without sacrificing performance.

“These new features were designed specifically for private and public cloud computing data centers, as well as online businesses that want to control their data resources based on their applications’ needs, without sacrificing service levels,” said Adoram Ga’ash, CEO of Crescendo Networks. “It’s a value-added feature set that allows us to offer customers granular and efficient on-demand control of Web applications, while helping conserve costly server and datacenter energy resources.”


“Some of the key business drivers for virtualization revolve around optimizing infrastructure management costs and improving flexibility for an increase in operational efficiencies and manageability,” said Bojan Simic, Research Analyst for Aberdeen. “Crescendo’s new cloud computing and virtualization functionality should offer customers a way to more effectively manage data center costs and allocate resources based on real business needs.”

This new functionality is available immediately. For more information please visit
