Application traffic management solutions provider Zeus Technology announced on Tuesday it has launched the ZXTM Global Load Balancer, which enables enterprises to seamlessly share traffic across globally distributed data centers.
ZXTM GLB is a DNS-based Global Server Load Balancing system, available as both software and a hardware appliance. It works alongside an Internet traffic manager by allowing organisations to scale their Internet-enabled services to two or more data centers, achieving improved reliability, better utilisation and better performance.
Based on Zeus Technology's ZXTM product, the ZXTM GLB is the only traffic management solution available as both an appliance and as a software platform to run on existing data center servers and blades and in virtualized environments, the company says. The product provides a rich GUI that allows organizations to visualize real-time traffic and data center performance on a map of the world.
"ZXTM GLB enables the transparent delivery of services and applications from multiple data centers, continually monitoring their performance and availability," says Paul Brennan, chairman of Zeus Technology. "It manages users' requests, intelligently directing traffic to the most appropriate service point based on current performance, service availability and geographic proximity."
