"Coyote Point Systems, a performance/price leader in the load balancing market, and Cobalt Networks, a leader in the server appliance market, announced an integrated solution for ISPs deploying load balanced server clusters."

"Offered together are Cobalt's RaQ Internet server appliances and Coyote Point's Equalizer 4.0, an intelligent load balancing appliance. The RaQ offers turn-key virtual hosting in a rack-mountable enclosure designed for high density installation. Equalizer intelligently routes traffic among multiple server clusters, ensuring high availability and 24X7 access to mission-critical Internet applications. Equalizer balances HTTP, email, news and FTP traffic, and supports "sticky connections" required to handle Active Server Pages and SSL. Active Content Verification ensures that not only server hardware but target applications are fully operational."

The Linux kernel at the heart of the RaQ and the BSD kernel powering Equalizer both provide maximum stability for TCP/IP implementations. Both products are sold preconfigured and offer simple browser-based administration; both can handle millions of web page requests per day; and both cost less than half of comparable products. RaQ's intuitive administration tools enable ISPs to hand off site administration to customers with confidence. Equalizer's browser-based control panel makes it easy to add, remove and reallocate clustered servers. Real time graphical reporting makes it easy to see when additional servers are required."
