Renewable Fuel Company Improves Data Replication, Saves Money by Migrating to Cost Effective MPLS

Santa Clara, Calif., February 23, 2009 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that Global Ethanol, a leader in renewable fuel, selected Silver Peak NX appliances to improve the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their disaster recovery initiatives.  With Silver Peak’s WAN acceleration technology, Global Ethanol has increased the amount of data backed up between offices without spending additional money on WAN bandwidth.  In addition, the company lowered its overall operational expenditures by combining disaster recovery with other business critical applications over a single shared MPLS network.  

Silver Peak partnered with DeltaWare Inc. to satisfy Global Ethanol’s WAN acceleration needs. 

“Silver Peak’s NX appliances work as advertised,” said Jeffrey Buelt, vice president of IT for Global Ethanol.  “Other vendors discounted Silver Peak’s ability to optimize UDP traffic, but the results speak for themselves.” 

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.
