NX appliances win on Appeal, Replace Existing WAN Acceleration Appliances at Leading Real Estate Law Firm

Santa Clara, Calif., April 7, 2009 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that Cox, Castle, & Nicholson LLP, one of the premier real estate law firms in the country, has selected Silver Peak’s NX appliances to optimize WAN performance between its regional offices.  Cox, Castle & Nicholson LLP is using Silver Peak to provide remote employees with faster access to key information, including a centralized litigation support database.  With WAN acceleration, the law firm is saving money by avoiding WAN upgrades, while improving employee productivity through faster and more efficient processing of client data.

“Our firm started to appreciate the value of WAN optimization when we first deployed optimization appliances a few years ago,” said Erica Greathouse, Director of Information Technology at Cox, Castle & Nicholson LLP.  “When the vendor recently stopped production of the appliances we had in service, we thought it was an excellent opportunity to re-examine the vendor landscape.  In the end, we switched to Silver Peak because they optimize the most applications with the industry’s best performance and scalability.”

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 acceleration  delivers unprecedented scalability, including the highest effective throughput of any WAN acceleration device.  This makes Silver Peak ideal for large enterprise networks and applications with high sustained data volumes.  

Silver Peak optimizes every application that runs over IP, including file, email, web, SQL, Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming video, Citrix, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), real-time data replication, and remote backup.  This provides the best Return on Investment (ROI) for WAN acceleration.

Silver Peak is the only vendor to solve bandwidth, latency, and loss issues in real time, making shared networks (IP VPN and MPLS) perform like private lines.  Enterprises get cost-effective bandwidth with high throughput and predictable performance, making Silver Peak strategic to a variety of business initiatives, from server centralization and storage consolidation to real-time collaboration and disaster recovery.
