NX Appliances Deliver 9 Month ROI by Minimizing Bandwidth Consumption

Santa Clara, Calif., January 26, 2009 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that Dayton Superior, a leading provider of specialty products for concrete construction, has selected Silver Peak’s NX appliances to optimize WAN performance between the company’s data centers and remote locations. The Silver Peak solution has reduced Dayton Superior’s bandwidth consumption by 80% on average, resulting in significantly lower ongoing operational costs and optimized performance for the company’s disaster recovery and data sharing initiatives.

“Silver Peak relieves congestion on our WAN to improve the reliability and performance of our EMC data replication,” said Mark Hickey, Director of IT at Dayton Superior. “At the same time, Silver Peak’s WAN acceleration solution ensures that all of our applications operate at peak performance – from Microsoft and UNIX file sharing to Citrix, Voice over IP (VoIP), and Oracle. By avoiding escalating bandwidth costs, improving collaboration amongst our employees, and reducing our exposure to lost data, the Silver Peak solution is expected to pay for itself within the first 9 months of deployment.”

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.
