Santa Clara, Calif., June 16, 2009 – Silver Peak Systems ,the leader in data center class Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization, today announced that Actel, the leader in low-power FPGAs and mixed-signal FPGAs, has selected Silver Peak’s NX appliances to assist with the company’s data center consolidation and global Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) initiatives. With Silver Peak’s real-time network optimization techniques, ACTEL can migrate servers to a single main data center in California without worrying about virtual application performance in remote locations, such as India. This lowers the company’s facility and bandwidth costs, and improves business operations through increased end user productivity.
“With Silver Peak’s WAN optimization, all of our domestic and international employees receive a consistent virtual application experience, regardless of location,” said Dave Sadowsky, IT manager at Actel. “Silver Peak’s scalability lets us handle thousands of simultaneous VDI sessions, while their application agnostic architecture benefits all of our key business applications. Without Silver Peak’s WAN optimization, it would have been difficult to achieve our data center consolidation and server centralization objectives.”
Silver Peak leverages a variety of real-time network optimization techniques to maximize application performance across the WAN while minimizing IT operational costs. These techniques include:
- Network Acceleration to overcome WAN latency
- Network Integrity to correct packet loss and WAN quality problems
- Network Memory™ to maximize WAN bandwidth utilization
Silver Peak’s unique network approach to WAN optimization delivers unprecedented performance and scalability.
