CloudBridge 400, 800, 2000 and 3000 Appliances

Jan 28, 2011

The CloudBridge 400, 800, 2000 and 3000 appliances are 1U accelerators for use in datacenters and larger branch offices.

The CloudBridge 2000 can be thought of as a faster Repeater 8500 appliance with two accelerated bridges, while the CloudBridge 3000 can be thought of as a faster Repeater 8800 with three accelerated bridges. The configuration process, however, is not the same. Like the high-end Repeater SDX appliance, CloudBridge 2000 and 3000 appliances use virtual machines for acceleration and management, running under a XenServer hypervisor.

The CloudBridge 400, 800, 2000, and 3000 Series are the next generation of CloudBridge appliances, with the following general characteristics:
  • CloudBridge 400 Series. An small, affordable 1U appliance suitable for smaller branch offices, the CloudBridge 400 Series has two accelerated bridges and supports WAN speeds of up to 6 Mbps.
  • CloudBridge 800 Series. A small 1U appliance suitable for medium-sized branch offices, the CloudBridge 800 Series has two accelerated bridges and supports WAN speed of up to 10 Mbps.
  • CloudBridge 2000 Series. A full-sized 1U appliance suitable for large branch offices and smaller datacenters, the CloudBridge 2000 Series has two accelerated bridges and supports WAN speed of 10-50Mbps.
  • CloudBridge 3000 Series. A full-sized 1U appliance suitable for the largest branch offices and medium-sized datacenters, the CloudBridge 3000 Series has three accelerated bridges and supports WAN speed of 50-155 Mbps.

All of these appliances have similar architectures and run the same release binaries. These appliances are fully supported with release 7.2.
