CAMBRIDGE, UK 28 February, 2007 – Zeus Technology, a leading provider of application traffic management software, today announced its partnership with Brazilian distributor, Servix Informática.

By adding ZXTM (Zeus Extensible Traffic Manager) to their portfolio, Servix Informatica, a long established distributor of HP hardware, will be in a unique position to offer Brazilian customers the full flexibility and return on investment benefits of a software based load balancer/traffic manager deployment.

“Because of the high import duties placed on hardware, software solutions are particularly attractive for both customers and resellers in Brazil,” said Ronaldo Yamashita, Technical Director of Servix Informática. “A permanent software licence, gives greater return on investment. When the hardware component of a load balancer of traffic manager requires replacing due to age or failure, our customers will not be left with the high cost of buying a whole new Load balancing appliance.. Additionally ZXTM’s resilience, rich feature set and impressive performance capability, make it an advanced competitor to other traffic managers that are only available as appliances.

A key requirement of the Brazilian Market is the need for application acceleration, a particular strength of ZXTM that first attracted Servix Informatica’s interest. In addition ZXTM’s session persistence capability impressed the experts at Servix Informática because ZXTM can read and understand requests, and then direct appropriately, maintaining application sessions where required.

Servix Informática will also work directly with ITLOG, responsible for Zeus’ successful entry into the Brazilian market in early January 2007. Servix Informática have system engineers trained on the full functionality of ZXTM and are able to offer frontline support, putting them in a very strong position for future sales.
