Wick Hill to Ship Barracuda Networks

Wick Hill is now shipping Barracuda Networks’ new application delivery controller, an integrated solution that combines load balancing, application acceleration, application control, and application security into a single, high-performance platform. This new product marks Barracuda’s official entrance into the Application Delivery Controller market space, a highly anticipated move for the company, given its extensive history of securing and scaling applications in the data centre.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “Enterprises use ADCs to optimise performance, security, reliability and data centre resources. This is a very high growth area and we are excited at the opportunities created by this addition to the Barracuda portfolio.”

According to the 4Q12 Data Center Appliance Report, published Feb. 2013 by Dell’Oro Group, “data center build outs, consolidation, the continued preference of users bringing their own devices, as well as increased applications on each device, will drive robust growth in the ADC market in 2013.”

Barracuda’s new ADC combines the advanced capabilities of the company’s purpose-built appliances for application security and load balancing, which have an installed base of more than 17,000 data centre customers throughout the world.
