Coyote Point Systems Inc.'s Equalizer E350 appliance, with version 7.0 of Coyote Point's Equalizer software, gains Layer 7 capabilities and global
server load balancing support. In so doing, it provides smaller companies with an inexpensive way to improve the performance of TCP/IP network
services. However, as eWeek Labs' tests showed, the Equalizer E350 is best suited for small-to-midsize Linux shops on a tight budget, and
administrators at these sites might want more from a GUI than the Equalizer appliance offers.
