Coyote Point Systems Launches Three Application Delivery Controllers for Data 
Centers, Mid-Sized and Large Enterprises 
The Equalizer E470LX, E670LX and E970LX Deliver Class-Leading
Performance and Value With Throughputs up to 15.0 Gbps 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/13 --  Coyote Point Systems,
a leading provider of enterprise-class application delivery, load
balancing and acceleration solutions, today announced the full
commercial availability of three new Equalizer application delivery
and load balancing appliances, the E470LX, E670LX and E970LX. These
new mid-range application delivery controllers (ADCs) provide
high-end performance at mid-range price points that most businesses
can easily afford. 
"Since 1998 Coyote Point has been a leader and innovator of load
balancers and value-oriented application delivery appliances," said
John Maddison, VP of Marketing for Fortinet. "With these new units
introduced today, Coyote Point continues its tradition of leadership,
clearly standing out as the value and performance leader for
mid-sized businesses and now enterprise and data center customers." 
These new LX ADCs replace Coyote Point's GX platform with
improvements to memory, CPU performance, storage and network
throughput. They have been built to take advantage of Coyote Point's
award-winning EQ/OS 10 operating system to deliver class-leading
performance, features and value. 
High Performance for Mid-Sized and Large Enterprises 
The Equalizer E470LX and E670LX are targeted at mid-sized businesses
and enterprises that require secure environments for e-commerce and
financial applications and can easily handle the intense demands of
HTTPS transaction processing.  
The E470LX provides 8.0 Gbps of layer 4 throughput, handles up to
179,000 layer 7 requests per second and 29,000 HTTPS transactions per
second. Its performance numbers place the E470LX with the top-of-line
units of other mid-range competitors at a significantly lower price
point. 
The E670LX includes two 10 gigabit SFP+ Ethernet ports for increased
networking bandwidth and ups the performance to 12.0 Gbps of layer 4
throughput, handles up to 336,000 layer 7 requests per second and
42,000 HTTPS transactions per second. Additionally, the E670LX
provides up to 2.5 Gbps throughput of compression, which
significantly reduces bandwidth requirements for content-rich
applications that rely heavily on services such as CSS and
JavaScript.  
Data Center Performance 
The Equalizer E970LX features two 10 gigabit SFP+ Ethernet ports,
dual hot-swappable power supplies, cooling assemblies and
"lights-out" management for remote access of the unit. With 15.0 Gbps
of layer 4 throughput, 420,000 layer 7 requests per second and 56,000
HTTPS transactions per second, the E970LX is the first Coyote Point
ADC to be purpose built for high-performance data center and
enterprise environments.  
"The Equalizer E470LX, E670LX and E670LX are the first new product
releases since Coyote Point's recent acquisition by Fortinet and
represents Fortinet's commitment to the evolution of the Coyote Point
brand, product line and its customers," said Michael Hayes, CEO for
Coyote Point Systems. "By leveraging Fortinet's leadership in the
network security space we will continue to deliver the best
application delivery solutions with the features and value that our
customers have come to expect."
