CAMBRIDGE, UK, 29 May 2007 – Zeus Technology, a leading provider of award-winning application traffic management software, today announced that it will offer organizations currently using Microsoft Network Load Balancer (NLB) the opportunity to upgrade to the ZXTM for Windows software (Zeus Extensible Traffic Manager).

ZXTM for Windows will appeal to those who are looking to deploy a load balancing solution with capabilities beyond the basic functionality provided by Microsoft's product. As part of the program, NLB users will be able to purchase one license and get a 50 percent discount on their second license.

This offer follows the official launch of ZXTM for Windows on 21 May 2007, once again widening the range of deployment options for Zeus’ flagship technology: as software (for Windows, Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD servers), as hardware appliances and as virtual appliances (for VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3).

“Microsoft Windows is extensively used in server environments,” said Paul Di Leo, CEO of Zeus Technology. “We recognized this as an opportunity in a market that had previously been under-served. ZXTM is the only Layer 7 traffic manager to run on Windows Server systems, which is good news for our customers who have standardized on the Microsoft infrastructure, and it’s also good news for our channel partners with customers using a Windows environment only.”

As well as enabling high availability, ZXTM adds application health checking, intelligent load balancing, powerful session persistence and a range of optimization, security and visualization features. ZXTM also includes the powerful TrafficScript™ rules language for inspecting, transforming and managing all types of client-server traffic, as well as advanced features like content caching, bandwidth and rate shaping and service level monitoring.
