The Cisco Application Velocity System (AVS 3110), an appliance-based solution for application optimization, is now orderable. The First Customer Shipment (FCS) has occurred.
The Cisco Application Velocity System (AVS) 3110 is an enterprise data-center appliance for improving HTML- and XML-based application performance, measuring end-user response time, and managing application security. It is a complete enterprise application delivery solution for all Web-based (HTTP/HTTPS) HTML and XML enterprise applications. The Cisco AVS 3110 offers the industry's most complete set of optimizations that mitigate network latency, reduce bandwidth requirements, and offload servers. The optimizations have an immediate impact on any application and integrate smoothly with any Web front end. Configuration flexibility is assured with detailed rules-based control, prebuilt application templates, and comprehensive best practices. No changes to applications, desktops, or servers are required. Cisco AVS 3110 appliances can be rapidly deployed in any environment and uniquely optimize, accelerate, and secure application delivery.

In addition to the core application optimization functions described above the Cisco AVS 3110 includes both the AppScreen Web Application Firewall and the AppScope Monitor.
Cisco AVS 3110 AppScreen Web Application Firewall-AppScreen provides "Day-Zero" protection using a rule-based, policy-driven approach. This integrated approach offers complete flexibility and helps secure your application infrastructure (even encrypted SSL transactions) from entire classes of HTTP- and HTTPS-based threats. AppScreen provides protection against entire classes of attacks, unlike signature-based protection, which handles only specific, known threats, or learned-rules-based protection, which requires an extensive training phase.
Cisco AVS 3110 AppScope Monitor-AppScope is the industry's only agentless, end-to-end application performance measurement solution. Installed in the data center, it provides a lightweight way for organizations to monitor, measure, and report end-user response times from a central location. AppScope measures the true application performance as realized by real end users-nothing is simulated. It breaks down response times into individual components that allow better allocation of IT resources and greatly reduce mean time to repair.
