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.
