Our company serves as the link between

publishers that want to sell ad space on their websites and advertisers

that want to buy ads on the same websites. Its

critical that our content loads rapidly and consistently to facilitate

this process and meet demand, said Peter

Amiri, CTO at AdEngage. “Crescendos

AppBeat DC is a key component that helps to ensure performance,

efficiency and availability of the web applications for our customers.

We evaluated several different application acceleration solutions, but

AppBeat DC was unmatched in performance and scalability.

Newer platforms are more robust and

extensible, and the move toward more complex application environments is

fueling the growth of the market,” said Mark Fabbi, Gartner VP

Distinguished Analyst. “Organizations are deploying ADCs (application

delivery controllers) as a standard part of their data center

architectures, rather than as a response to specific application

performance issues.” (Gartner, Hype

Recently, Crescendo secured $9.5 million in a third major round of

funding, with The Challenge Fund joining current investors, bringing its

total amount raised to $36.2 million. Over the past year, Crescendo has

stepped up its investment in the United States by establishing its North

America headquarters in Menlo Park, California, and doubling its North

America workforce. It has also established partnerships

with industry leaders like Oracle, IBM and Imperva

including a strategic OEM relationship with H3C.

By providing the industrys

most comprehensive and best performing Web application acceleration and

optimization solution, we help organizations scale to meet the growing

demands of their business, said Adoram Gaash,

CEO of Crescendo Networks. Our unique

ability to deliver full feature concurrency and performance at scale is

critical for meeting the needs of the webs

hottest online properties and business-critical enterprise applications,

and we plan to further expand this leadership with broad availability of

an exciting new product category later this year.

Crescendo recently enhanced its AppBeat DC product with Global

Server Load Balancing (GSLB) and multi-gigabit zero latency

compression features. AppBeat DCs GSLB

functionality allows organizations to improve application availability

and avoid costly application disruptions. With GSLB, users are

automatically directed to the best performing datacenter location for

their request, improving both efficiency and user experience. AppBeat DCs

zero latency compression feature compresses content in real time at

speeds up to 3 Gbps, minimizing overall application bandwidth

consumption, eliminating the need for server-level compression and

improving user response time. The end result is increased application

speed and reduced server and network load

and thus lower IT costs. With the above features and more that will

follow, Crescendo aims at complementing its award-winning core

acceleration technology and broaden its offering to the Web-based

infrastructure world.
