Message throughputs are measured at 20, 000 messages per hour on the E500 and 70, 000 on the E2000 model and are based on receiving, processing (incl AV) and delivering to another server based on a representative message set.

  • Customer’s own hardware – The Linux platform used by the SECURE Email Gateway supports multiple hardware suppliers so that customers can continue to use servers from their favourite IT supplier, such as Dell (including 12G), HP (including G8), IBM, Hitachi, etc.
  • VMware (inc vSphere5) and Hyper-V – Customers building a private cloud can deploy for Production, DR and Test usage on VMware and Hyper-V. Customers can also mix-and-match their deployments between physical and virtual, according to their platform requirements.
