SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 24, 2012 — Silver Peak Systems , the leader in accelerating data movement over distance, today extended its software-based product portfolio for wide area network (WAN) optimization with the introduction of the VX-500 for small remote sites, and the VX-6000 and VX-7000 for data centers, regional offices and disaster recovery (DR) sites. The new virtual products broaden Silver Peak’s comprehensive portfolio of high-performance virtual solutions and further extend Silver Peak’s leadership position in Virtual WAN optimization.
As enterprises move data from data centers to offsite locations they must contend with long distances and low-quality shared or public networks that limit the performance of data movement over distance. This can hinder recovery point objectives (RPO) for disaster recovery and make applications perform poorly. Silver Peak solves these challenges with its Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) software, which uses real time acceleration techniques for moving data quickly across the WAN. Silver Peak VXOA delivers maximum flexibility by running on any standard hypervisor and a variety of hardware platforms such as stand-alone servers, routers, switches, server blades, and storage arrays. All of the Silver Peak virtual products are available for download from the Silver Peak Virtual Marketplace , allowing customers to move data up to 90x faster over existing infrastructures.
“With the addition of our new virtual products, Silver Peak continues to lead the industry with the fastest and most cost-effective software solutions for moving large amounts of data between any size data center, branch or disaster recovery site,” said Damon Ennis, vice president of product management for Silver Peak. “The Silver Peak virtual marketplace and our software-based solutions have revolutionized the delivery, deployment and pricing of WAN optimization. All or our software solutions are available for free, self-service trials directly from our website, allowing anyone to start accelerating their data mobility immediately.”
Silver Peak expands its virtual product line at the low-end with the VX-500, which accelerates smaller networks with up to 2 megabits-per-second (Mbps) of throughput and is ideal for remote sites with T1/E1 multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) or cable/DSL connections. The VX-500 supports up to 8,000 simultaneous connections—400x more than the competitive products. The Silver Peak VX-6000 and VX-7000 were added to complement Silver Peak’s mid-range products, providing acceleration for 100 Mbps and 200 Mbps connections respectfully.
With the addition of the new virtual products, Silver Peak extends its lead over the competition in offering the highest-performance and most cost-effective software solutions for any size office and any level of network throughput. This includes the Silver Peak VRX virtual solution that supports 1 Gbps of WAN throughput and up to 256,000 simultaneous sessions , and the Silver Peak NX-10K that supports 10 gigabit infrastructures and up to 512,000 simultaneous sessions.
