Santa Clara, Calif., August 20, 2008 – Silver Peak Systems , the leading provider of scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration solutions, today announced that Transplace, an industry leader in third party logistics services and technology, selected Silver Peak NX appliances to improve data throughput between the company’s data centers. With Silver Peak, Transplace is performing real-time NetApp SnapMirror replication in a secure manner while also improving the performance of web, email, and other business applications across the WAN. This minimizes the company’s risk of exposure while maximizing Transplace’s investment in networking and storage technology.
“Predictable and consistent backups are critical to our data center business objectives and Silver Peak empowered us to achieve these goals by maximizing throughput on our WAN without requiring costly infrastructure upgrades,” said Ron Smith, vice president of IT, Transplace. “While other WAN optimization vendors had challenges handling the volume of traffic and number of flows in our environment, Silver Peak demonstrated the optimal level of scalability that made them a perfect fit for our environment.”
The Silver Peak solution is optimized to support large networks, delivering the best performance on high capacity WAN links and across many distributed enterprise locations.

As a result, Silver Peak is commonly used to accelerate a variety of business-critical applications, including real-time data replication, remote backup, SQL, file, email, web, Voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming video.
