Snapt, a South African development company, is getting ready to enter the ranks of the U.K.-based ARM (News - Alert) connected community. The company is becoming the part of the ARM community by introducing its open source tools in the UK.
The ARM community is network of companies that allows companies to collaborate in order to optimize their work output.
"Open source applications being run on ARM technology is a huge growth area, and one we are most interested in. Snapt supports both Linux and FreeBSD, which also has great support for ARM architecture,” commented Dave Blakey, CEO of Snapt.
Now by joining this community, Snapt will be able to take advantage of skills, products and services around the ARM architecture.
Snapt has initially introduced Snapt ADC (News - Alert) - a powerful application delivery controller including Snapt’s load balancer and Web accelerator, developed to enable corporations to get the maximum throughput, reliability and visibility from their server farms and websites.
Snapt Balancer is a powerful, customizable layer 7 load balancer that turns the already robust HAProxy load balancer into a feature-rich and easy-to-use solution. It enables users to share the load of SQL, SMTP, HTTP or any TCP traffic across any number of servers, and can be easily expanded with weights, maximum limits and several balancing methods.
Snapt Balancer offers customers access to features such as advanced reporting, control over the config file and status alerts that improve overall use of the HAProxy load balancer, as well as introducing full redundancy and SSL offloading/termination and layer 7 support. The software comes complete with ongoing technical support, in order to ensure long-term efficacy.
Snapt Web Accelerator allows corporate IT Departments to cache static content, protect against denial of service attacks, limit server abuse, manage data throughput and terminate and optimize SSL traffic.
In other company news, TMCnet reported that Snapt offers free open source solutions. Snapt's high-end customized open source software tools are not only easy to use, but at the same time offer the kind of support and reporting traditionally associated with commercial software offerings.
