MILPITAS, Calif. -- Array Networks Inc., a leading provider of optimized and secure universal access solutions, today announced that PetroChina Inc., has deployed Array's SSL VPN and Global Server Load Balancing platforms to deliver mission-critical applications to its diverse workforce in nine data centers throughout China. Array's combined solution provides PetroChina employees with the highest security, easiest management, and most cost-effective application delivery benefits on the market today.
As the largest producer of crude oil and natural gas in China, PetroChina needed a way to accommodate the growth of its business, and enable employees to securely access crucial applications including ERP application, Microsoft Office, Exchange 2003, and financials. After extensive evaluation of other solutions, PetroChina chose Array's solution because it provides users with a single domain name, which allows IT managers to centralize access-control policy and guarantee applications are always running.
Since installing Array's SSL VPN and TMX Application Accelerator, PetroChina now experiences zero-instance of application downtime, and ad-hoc access control is accomplished in minutes, rather than days. Array's TMX also significantly reduces WAN traffic by 80%. This guarantees availability, scalability and granular traffic control while streamlining application delivery and providing an instantaneous online experience for all PetroChina users.
