Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers
- Revenue growth, customer traction and forward-looking products fuel positive momentum
MILPITAS, CA – November 17, 2014: Array Networks Inc., a worldwide provider of application delivery networking solutions, was recognized in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers. Array’s updated position for 2014 reflects improvements in terms of both execution and vision.*
Array has grown substantially, nearly doubling ADC revenue from 2012 to 2013, and it now has more than 2,000 ADC customers. Moreover, as a vendor that supports large-scale cloud and service provider customers, Array Networks have introduced significant new forward-looking products including the AVX10650 multi-tenant/virtualized hardware application delivery controller.
Array Networks continues to demonstrate positive momentum within its focus on small and medium enterprises and cloud service providers with more stringent SSL performance requirements. Array is meeting the growing trend toward
HTTPS-encrypted Web sites, applications and cloud services; and with its focus on infrastructure -as-a-service (IaaS) providers, Array is positioned to benefit from the trend toward application delivery purchased as a cloud service. Moreover, with support for Hyper-V as of Q3 2014, Array has addressed a caution from Gartner’s previous Magic Quadrant and bolstered its focus on value-conscious mid-market customers.
“Array added a significant number of new ADC customers over the last two years and has moved aggressively to introduce new capabilities that keep pace with changes driven by virtualization and cloud computing,” said Mr Michael Zhao, President andCEO of Array Networks. “We are very encouraged to see our efforts reflected in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant and are committed to further improvement based upon meeting and exceeding customer expectations.”
