Products[edit]

V-Load Director (VLD)[edit]

Viaedge's VLD product is based on a network appliance (either virtual or physical), which runs on top of Linux. This appliance can then run one or more product modules (depending on the appliance selected), which provide the VLD functionality.

V-NetLink (VLLB)[edit]

Viaedge's V-Netlink product is based on a network appliance (either virtual or physical), which runs on top of Linux. This appliance can then run one or more product modules (depending on the appliance selected), which provide the VLD functionality.

Viaedge Appliances[edit]

The current line of VLD & V-NetLink appliance was released between 2009 and 2010, and the hardware models internally use a single custom-fabricated system board. The previous platforms had two internal boards - a PC/server-type motherboard . Some models include hardware SSL acceleration for key exchanges and bulk encryption/decryption, and hardware compression assistance. The current hardware line-up uses Intel CPUs, but some previous models have included AMD Opteron CPUs. Hardware models include a front LCD panel for configuration and monitoring and a separate service processor for out-of-band management.

The full model line-up is as follows,[1] with approximate best-case throughput indicated:
