Companies with a services business model in the area of cloud computing, managed/hosted services and suppliers of IPv4 based appliances that need to be implemented in IPv6 based network environments are amongst .vantronix secure systems customers.

Version 4.9, based on the secure operating system OpenBSD 4.9, has a number of improvements and added functionality, like:
* Significant performance improvements of more than 30%

2011-10-18Increased interest in: IPv6/IPv4 Gateway
With the increase in attention for IPv6, we start running into issues in supporting IPv6 on our websites and Internet applications. Much of the network design over the last 15 years has assumed that we are running in an IPv4 world. Re-designing your network would be necessary, in order to support potential IPv6 customers. However, with .vantronix Loadbalancers, you can simply translate the .vantronix features work transparently with IPv6, as well as IPv4. The gateway functionality can dynamically relay between both worlds. In case you need help, please contact us at (Compumatica)
