Real-time Network Optimization techniques Improve Information Collection

Santa Clara, Calif., March 16, 2009 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that Intelius, a leading provider of public records information and services, has selected Silver Peak’s NX appliances to optimize WAN performance. With Silver Peak’s real-time network optimization techniques, Intelius is improving the quality of Voice over IP (VoIP) communications across the WAN, while accelerating file sharing, backups, and real-time database queries. By giving Intelius employees fast and secure access to critical information, Silver Peak is helping the company help its customers make fast and accurate decisions.

“We evaluated numerous WAN optimization solutions in our quest to find the perfect fit for the Intelius environment,” said Paul Farrall, Director of Operations at Intelius. “In the end, we chose Silver Peak because they have a unique ability to deduplicate both TCP and non-TCP traffic, which reduced our WAN utilization by over 90%. In addition, they detect and fix packet loss in real-time, which significantly improves the performance and reliability of voice, SQL, and other time sensitive applications.”

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.
