AlertBoot Selects Zeus to Support Cloud Migration
Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (Application Delivery Controller) company, today announced that AlertBoot, a leading provider of web-based full disk encryption, has chosen Zeus’ software-based load balancing solution, Zeus Traffic Manager, to support its migration from a hardware infrastructure to the cloud. Zeus was selected because of its superior performance, software-based architecture and price compared to its hardware-based competitors.

With AlertBoot’s entire business run online and revolved around its web application, the company knew the importance of maintaining constant availability while migrating to a 100 percent virtual environment. The three hardware solutions AlertBoot previously employed could not overcome this challenge, due to their lengthy installation processes and limited resource scalability. Zeus’ pure-software load balancing solution gave AlertBoot the flexibility it required to keep everything up and running throughout the transition and only took a matter of hours to fully deploy.  

“Zeus is the perfect solution for us since it does everything, if not more, than hardware-based load balancers at a third of the price,” said Tim Maliyil, CEO, AlertBoot. “Since implementing Zeus, we haven’t had a single instance of downtime, even during our migration to the cloud. Our customers have also really noticed an increase in available support since our staff don’t have to waste time on back-end hardware maintenance anymore. Overall, it’s been very refreshing to find such a high-performing software solution. And Zeus has given us the confidence to leave all our costly hardware behind.” 

AlertBoot chose Zeus over alternative hardware-based products because its software solution was cost-effective, quick to deploy and easy to configure. Zeus is the fastest software application delivery controller on the market, allowing companies like AlertBoot to seamlessly deliver fast, secure and available web-based applications across any IT platform or environment. 

“Because Zeus is a pure software solution, we were critical in AlertBoot’s decision to move to a virtualized infrastructure,” said David Day, CTO, Zeus Technology. “Zeus is an attractive solution because of its flexibility and portability allowing AlertBoot to seamlessly transition between Cloud Providers as needed, giving them ultimate control of their environment.”
