PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Cisco Systems ® is announcing the new Cisco ® 511 Content Engine, Cisco 566 Content Engine, and Cisco Storage Array 7340 products. These new Cisco 500 Series content engines offer the latest in hardware technology and performance and will ship installed with the latest Cisco Application and Content Networking System (ACNS) Software Version 5.2, providing the industry-leading solution for caching, streaming, and content delivery. For more information on the latest Cisco ACNS Software release and features, see the Cisco ACNS 5.2 Software Product Bulletin at
The Cisco 511 Content Engine replaces the Cisco 510A Content Engine as the new entry-level edge delivery platform for small branch offices.
The Cisco 566 Content Engine replaces the Cisco 565A Content Engine as the new midrange edge delivery platform for regional offices or larger branch offices. The Cisco 566 Content Engine can be configured as a content distribution manager or a content router in a Cisco ACNS deployment or as a Cisco IP/TV ® Program Manager in a Cisco IP/TV deployment. No additional licensing or customer costs are required to make this change (see Table 1). For storage expandability and higher caching performance, the Cisco 566 Content Engine can be connected to a Cisco Storage Array 7340.
The Cisco Storage Array 7340 replaces the Cisco Storage Array 7 and 14 as the direct-attached storage-expansion solution for the Cisco ACNS content engines. The Cisco Storage Array 7340 offers 540 to 1008 GB (1.008 terabytes [TB]) of Ultra 320 Small Computer System Interface (SCSI), high speed, and highly reliable storage capacity. The Cisco Storage Array 7340 features front-serviceable hard drives and redundant and hot-swappable AC power supplies to enhance reliability.
