October 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Montreal, Canada. Elfiq is proud to announce that the new LB-1500E Link Load Balancer built on its new E-Series platform is the most energy-efficient 1U rackmount unit in its class. This device requires only 25W of power under peak traffic conditions, a performance unseen in the field of link load balancing. Power consumption in competing units ranges from 35W to 300W.

“We are really excited about this device; not only does it deliver amazing performance, it does a fantastic job of managing power. Considering that organizations’ power consumption is on the rise, power costs are increasing every year and availability can be limited, this unit will not add any extra burden to small and mid-sized businesses,” said Jean Pascal Hebert, Vice-President Business Development of Elfiq Networks.

“When designing our new products, we made a decision to have a unit that would fit small and mid-sized businesses’ needs while keeping power consumption low. Elfiq is looking to provide environmentally friendly solutions, and this complements nicely our units which all are RoHS-compliant,” said Ghislain Lachapelle, Executive Vice-President of Elfiq Networks. “Requiring only 25W of power, this unit will also do its part to not add extra cooling requirements in server closets.”

The Elfiq LB-1500E is currently available for shipping.

Elfiq Link Load Balancer installation is the simplest on the market. No IP address migration or any changes to firewalls/routers are required. The Elfiq Link Load Balancer guarantees optimal access to your network and applications for business continuity, while optimizing your multi-homed network throughput. Advanced functions such as geographic load balancing and VPN multiplexing make it a key element of disaster recovery projects and ensure optimal access to the enterprise’s IP services.
