Silver Peak Expands Reach with Dell to Global Markets

Silver Peak a Dell Preferred Partner for WAN Optimization in over 30 Countries

LAS VEGAS, May 7, 2012 —At Interop Las Vegas 2012, Silver Peak Systems , the leader in data center class wide area network (WAN) optimization, today announced the global expansion of its partnership with Dell where customers can now purchase Silver Peak solutions through Dell in over 30 countries throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.

As a Dell global preferred partner for WAN optimization, companies of all sizes throughout the world can easily and cost-effectively deploy and use WAN optimization in data centers, branch offices and the cloud. Silver Peak’s Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) helps Dell customers increase network capacity, optimize network quality, and extend local area network (LAN) performance to applications over distance—all while reducing costs.

“Silver Peak is well aligned with our Virtual Network Architecture where network resources are open, easily provisioned and managed, providing scalability for future growth,” said Arpit Joshipura, head of marketing and product management, Dell Networking. “Whether replicating data over distance, implementing VDI across the enterprise, or accessing data in the cloud, Silver Peak helps customers quickly and easily optimize wide area networks and reduce investments in WAN infrastructure.”

Silver Peak’s VXOA can be purchased through Dell on Silver Peak NX appliances or, alternatively, Silver Peak’s VX and VRX virtual appliances can be deployed as software instances on Dell PowerEdge™ servers. The result is a flexible and highly-customizable solution for enterprise-wide WAN optimization designed to deliver unprecedented scalability—from megabits-per-second (Mbps) to multi-gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of WAN capacity.

“Silver Peak provides a perfect complement to Dell solutions by extending LAN-like performance across the entire enterprise and to the cloud,” said Rick Tinsley, president and CEO of Silver Peak. “The combination of Silver Peak’s virtual WAN optimization and Dell solutions translates into increased simplicity and lower costs for enabling and optimizing distributed applications.”
