A10 Networks (NYSE:ATEN), a technology leader in application networking, today announced that PreCise MRM, one of the leading suppliers of GPS-based fleet management solutions in North America, selected

A10’s  vThunder virtual appliance because of its comprehensive ADC features, scalability, and price / performance.

PreCise MRM’s network infrastructure supports hundreds of customers encompassing thousands of active GPS/AVL devices in the field, including those involved in snow and ice removal. Parent company FORCE America offers electronic spreader controllers integrated with PreCise GPS devices and software to provide a leading-edge technology that handles many types of critical situations, coast to coast.

Snow storms place a strain on networks by potentially creating bottlenecks that could impact critical winter operations activities. By balancing traffic across available resources, PreCise can more efficiently distribute workloads across numerous computing resources-minimizing response time and avoiding overload on any one resource.

IT teams from both FORCE America and PreCise spent several months evaluating vendors. Their requirements included a solution that performed well while supporting existing applications, scalability for future needs, and excellent price/performance. The teams selected A10’s vThunder due to the benefits of rapid deployment (vThunder images allowed download and fast deployment to virtualized infrastructure), high-performance without feature limitations, and dynamic provisioning/operation.

A10’s vThunder solution saved us a lot of time and money,” said Mr.Michael SchlagProduct Manager forPreCise MRM. “We were really impressed with the company’s response time and A10’s vThunder worked right out of the box. Putting in this virtual appliance was a very quick way to do a proof of concept and we can now effectively load balance incoming and outgoing traffic which utilizes multiple communication protocols. My only regret is not giving A10 a chance sooner.

 

FORCE America is exhibiting at the APWA North American Snow Conference, May 4-7, in Cincinnati.
