In a press release presented on Market Wire, Vyatta announced the availability of three new mid-range routing and security appliances aimed at delivering complete edge connectivity and data protection for small to mid-sized enterprises and branch offices. Coupling the award winning Vyatta Network OS with multi-core Intel processors, the Vyatta 2600, 1600 and 600 series network appliances offer up to more than three times the performance of the Cisco Integrated Services Router Generation 2 (ISR G2).
“’This upgrade to our appliance product family once again highlights the benefits of an open systems approach to networking. A simple product revision in a two year span nets Vyatta users up to 40 percent performance increase with no impact to cost,’ said Tom McCafferty, Vice President of Marketing at Vyatta. ‘The myth of custom hardware and hardware acceleration requirements in mid-range networking has been busted. Thousands of Vyatta users around the world enjoy the increasing power of x86-based server platforms making them ideal systems for next generation physical, virtual, and cloud network connectivity and security.’”
