Zeus Technology, the only pure software-based application traffic management (application delivery controller) company, today announced that SnagAJob.com, America’s largest hourly job website, is employing Zeus to deliver a fast and reliable online presence. Zeus was selected because it offers a software solution that better served SnagAJob.com’s transition to a virtual environment, making it easy to leave behind its hardware solution and physical infrastructure.
Zeus Traffic Manager enables SnagAJob.com to achieve the constant availability and performance it requires to drive revenue, satisfy end-users and avoid costly downtime. Spikes in traffic are easily absorbed by Zeus and evenly distributed across servers, providing the flexibility to scale on-demand and utilize more web servers as needed. If SnagAJob.com suddenly needs to go from 20 to 100 servers, Zeus can easily help them burst into their private cloud, creating new virtual machines in a matter of minutes, rather than days. This is an essential aspect of Zeus Traffic Manager for SnagAJob.com, enabling them to keep their service offerings constantly online and accessible.
“We drive nearly all our revenue through our online presence, so even an hour of downtime could cost us thousands of dollars,” said Matt Reidy, Director of IT Operations, SnagAJob.com. “If a web server crashes, Zeus knows about it and will divert traffic away from that server seamlessly for our end-users. With Zeus’ virtual appliance, we were able to easily integrate their software into our virtualized environment without disruption to our services.”
SnagAJob.com is also trialling the new Zeus Elastic Application Delivery platform, which was announced last month. This latest release combines Zeus Traffic Manager 7.0 and the new Zeus Multi-Site Manager, providing businesses with one application delivery fabric across multiple Physical, Virtual and Cloud environments. SnagAJob.com is already realizing the flexibility, reliability and performance benefits of the new Zeus Multi-Site Manager. It will be a key factor for its internal growth and customer experience.
“We are very pleased to be working with SnagAJob.com, helping them deliver a more secure, reliable web presence,” said Paul Brennan, CEO, Zeus Technology. “In virtualized environments, it’s all the more important to have visibility into your business’ application performance. This visibility gives companies the flexibility they need to ensure their services are constantly available in the cloud. With that kind of uptime, companies can grow and scale complex, distributed applications and manage updates without incurring costly downtime, thereby strengthening brand reputation and customer loyalty.”
