Silver Peak Software Added to NEC SDN Application Center

Selected Because of Virtual WAN Optimization Leadership; Delivers on SDN Promise with Software-Defined Acceleration

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 9, 2013 – Silver Peak Systems, the leader in accelerating data over distance, today announced it has joined NEC Corporation of America (NEC) to include its data acceleration software as part of NEC’s new Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Application Center.  The NEC SDN Application Center focuses on solutions that address customers’ top-of-mind network concerns. Silver Peak software enables customers to accelerate individual workloads and applications beyond a single data center with point-and-click simplicity.

When extending workloads and applications beyond a single data center, customers must overcome wide area network (WAN) distance, quality and capacity challenges. By combining the power of SDN with virtual WAN optimization software, Silver Peak enables customers to dissolve distance and accelerate individual workloads over the WAN using common virtual infrastructure management platforms like VMware vCenter, Citrix XenCenter, and Microsoft System Center. This brings flexibility and cost savings to customers who want to deploy WAN optimization without having to install new hardware or reconfiguring switches and routers.

“Silver Peak’s leadership in delivering software-based WAN optimization is the perfect complement to NEC’s market-leading ProgrammableFlow® Network Suite,” said Don Clark, director of business development, IT Platform Technologies, NEC Corporation of America. “Silver Peak virtual products plug into our new SDN Application Center to give customers maximum flexibility and performance for extending business-critical applications across any distance.”

“Silver Peak’s software-defined approach to data acceleration allows any networking, storage, server, or compute administrator to quickly and easily accelerate any application over distance using the tools with which they are the most comfortable,” said David Hughes, founder and CTO of Silver Peak Systems. “By integrating Silver Peak virtual WAN acceleration with NEC’s ProgrammableFlow Network suite, customers can reap the benefits of WAN optimization with point-and-click simplicity.”
