Silver Peak NX and VX appliances Resold by Dell Software and Peripherals Group

Santa Clara, Calif., August 2, 2010 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in data center class Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization, today announced that the company’s NX appliances, VX appliances, and Global Management System (GMS) are available now for purchase through Dell’s Software and Peripherals group.  When Silver peak’s award winning WAN optimization solution is combined with Dell EqualLogic and other Dell storage offerings, enterprises can protect more data across longer distances while leveraging cost effective shared WANs to lower ongoing IT costs.

NX appliances are standalone WAN optimization devices that lead the industry in scalability and performance, from small remote offices (served by the NX-1000) to the most demanding data centers (served by the largest WAN optimization appliance on the market, the NX-9000.)  VX appliances are software only versions of the NX appliances that enable end users to deploy Silver Peak’s award winning technology on any hardware platform, thus reaping the benefits of server virtualization.   Silver Peak’s Global Management System (GMS), which is available in both physical and virtual versions, is an industry leading platform for managing a Silver Peak enabled WAN.

All Silver Peak products can be ordered through local Dell representatives and Dell partners.  In addition, enterprises wishing to deploy Silver Peak’s WAN optimization technology on Dell servers can request an evaluation of Silver Peak’s VX appliances via Dell’s virtual appliance portal. 

“We are pleased to add Dell to a distinguished list of technology companies that are reselling Silver Peak’s WAN optimization solution,” said Marc Trimuschat, vice president of business development and alliances at Silver Peak.  “As more data center infrastructure vendors add WAN optimization to their product portfolios, it is clear that Silver Peak is the WAN optimization vendor of choice for disaster recovery and business continuity initiatives.  This is enormous validation of our company, products, and leadership position in the data center WAN optimization market.”
