Santa Clara, Calif., September 20, 2010 – Silver Peak Systems, the leader in data center class Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization , today announced that Silver Peak’s NX appliances have received EMC® E-Lab™ qualification to support EMC RecoverPoint, the leading solution for intelligent network-based data protection and disaster recovery. Separately, Silver Peak appliances have also been tested and qualified with EMC Atmos™ cloud storage systems. These latest qualifications expand the list of qualifications with EMC products to cover a wide range of data protection scenarios, from small and mid size organizations to large enterprises. Whether replicating across internal networks or into the cloud, Silver Peak and EMC technology helps to lower disaster recovery costs while improving Recovery Point and Time Objectives (RPO/RTO).
Silver Peak’s data center class WAN optimization solution complements EMC replication by overcoming common WAN bandwidth, latency and quality issues that can adversely impact replication performance across a WAN. Silver Peak lowers disaster recovery costs by enabling replication to take place over converged network infrastructures instead of more costly dedicated WAN links. For organizations seeking the benefits of cloud-based storage, Silver Peak ensures that network access to the cloud is fast and reliable. Silver Peak’s unique network approach to WAN optimization delivers unprecedented scalability and flexibility, enabling EMC customers to rapidly move large amounts of data across long distances.
Building on a Strong Partnership
As a leader in data center class WAN Optimization, Silver Peak’s NX appliances and Global Management System (GMS) have been available through the EMC Select Program for over two years. The EMC Select program helps customers easily acquire all the required components of an information infrastructure solution – all from EMC. Silver Peak customers include Donegal Insurance, Golf Savings, NYK Logistics, US Navy, and many others.
Since joining the EMC Select program, Silver Peak’s WAN optimization products have been E-lab qualified on EMC replication products, including Symmetrix® Remote Data Facility/Asynchronous (SRDF®/A), Symmetrix Remote Data Facility/Data Mobility (SRDF/DM), SAN Copy™, Celerra® Replicator, and now RecoverPoint. The highly regarded E-Lab testing program ensures that Silver Peak’s network optimization capabilities are interoperable in EMC replication environments.
As recognition of Silver Peak’s impact, Silver Peak NX Appliances were named “Offering of the Year” in the Celerra category of the EMC Partner Solution awards in 2009..
Optimizing the Cloud
Silver Peak also successfully completed interoperability testing between Silver Peak’s WAN optimization appliances and EMC’s Atmos cloud offering. Silver Peak tested in various Atmos environments, including replication between Atmos hosts and client access to the cloud. Silver Peak is now part of the “Atmos Specialty” area in the EMC Velocity(2) ISV partner program.
