Bell Microproducts and Zeus Technology Sign Distribution Agreement
Bell Microproducts Inc., one of the world's largest value-added distributors of storage and computing technology, and Zeus Technology, a leading provider of application traffic management software, announced today that they have reached an agreement whereby Bell Microproducts will distribute Zeus's flagship product, ZXTM (Zeus Extensible Traffic Manager).

The Zeus traffic manager is ideally suited to expand VAR opportunities in both the SMB and enterprise markets as ZXTM enhances existing networking applications with higher performance data access and retrieval as well as extensive security features. For those solutions providers who are offering managed services, ZXTM ensures high performance throughput and responsiveness for web-enabled applications.

ZXTM joins other networking, storage and security offerings from Bell Microproducts to offer VARs an array of products that provide comprehensive end-to-end solutions.

Simple to deploy and configure, ZXTM features a blend of high-performance load balancing, Layer 7 traffic management and extensive security features to websites and web-based applications. ZXTM integrates essential application performance optimization functions including SSL acceleration, caching, security, dynamic content compression, global server load balancing and clustering. Using the simple concept of virtual servers, ZXTM intercepts, manages and load-balances web traffic. As a pure software solution or as an appliance, ZXTM can be deployed in any scenario making it the most flexible traffic management solution on the market. With the recent edition of the ZXTM Virtual Appliance product (ZXTM VA), customers who are moving to virtualized environments, now or in the future, can utilize ZXTM VA to improve the efficiency of datacenter resources.

"Bell Microproducts is happy to add Zeus's award-winning ZXTM to its line card, as we continually strive to provide only the best to our resellers," noted Gary Gammon, vice president of marketing for Bell Microproducts. "The Zeus solutions provide a perfect complement to our storage-centric and server-agnostic approach to networking, and provide enterprise-centric VARs and resellers with the highest levels of network performance and security."

"End users from the SMB to Enterprise space require fast, reliable, easy to manage and secure network and web-enabled applications, and ZXTM fits the bill precisely," noted Damian Reeves, general manager of US operations for Zeus Technology. "Our partnership with Bell Microproducts significantly enhances our reach to VARs and system integrators as we continue to expand the distribution of our products to enterprise customers of all sizes."

Zeus's ZXTM is available now through Bell Microproducts' distribution network. Please call 1-800-800-1513 for more information.
