SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 26, 2014 – Silver Peak today announced that Nevro Corp., a growth stage medical device company focused on developing innovative, evidence based solutions in the neuromodulation space, has selected Silver Peak to accelerate data transfer to and from VMware’s vCloud® Air™ platform.
With employees in Europe and the United States, Nevro Corp. was looking for a robust, flexible, accessible cloud solution that could scale with the business. It also needed a secure platform that could meet the stringent regulatory requirements for its implantable medical device and associated patient and study data. Nevro, a young company building its IT infrastructure from the ground up, selected the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform based on its compatibility with existing VMware® solutions.
With vCloud Air in place, Nevro turned to Silver Peak to maximize performance. Following a simple Silver Peak integration, Nevro achieved up to a 25X improvement in transfer speeds, making it possible for Nevro to quickly migrate its tertiary active directory, Clinical Data Management System (CDMS), distribution and file servers to the cloud, as well as a legacy financial system and two programmer databases.
“Silver Peak has been an instrumental partner in helping us accelerate data mobility for our VMware vCloud environment,” said Jeff Wilson, IT director for Nevro Corp. “Performance pretty much went atomic once we initiated Silver Peak, especially in the area of data transfer. Our upload speeds for a 572MB video file went from 4 megabits per second to 100-plus megabits per second once we added Silver Peak and the solution has provided invaluable scalability and performance. It erased any fears we may have had about moving our data to the cloud.”
In addition to vCloud acceleration, Nevro is also evaluating Silver Peak’s new Unity solution, a groundbreaking intelligent wide area network (WAN) fabric that unifies the enterprise network with the public cloud. Unlike traditional WAN optimization solutions, Unity correlates information about cloud services and Internet “weather” to intelligently route traffic over a secure, optimal path. By keeping SaaS and IaaS traffic on the Unity fabric, IT gains an ability it’s never had: the ability to monitor and control connectivity to the cloud while ensuring consistent SaaS performance.
VMware recommends Silver Peak for initial data migration, ongoing replication/synchronization, and multi-site, end user access to vCloud Air.
