Real-Time Network Optimization Improves AutoCAD Performance, Lowers WAN Bandwidth Expenditures

Santa Clara, Calif., May 19, 2009 Silver Peak Systems , the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that TDIndustries, one of America’s premier facilities service and specialty construction companies, has chosen Silver Peak to improve application performance to branch offices. With Silver Peak’s NX appliances, TDIndustries’ employees are more effectively collaborating in real-time using key business applications, including AutoCAD, Microsoft Terminal Services, and videoconferencing. By improving the flow of information between distributed locations, Silver Peak has improved TDIndustries’ workflow process without increasing the company’s WAN bandwidth expenditures.

“Silver Peak’s network approach to WAN acceleration benefits all of our IP applications, including those that are notoriously difficult to optimize like AutoCAD and remote desktop applications,” said Mike Murphy, Network Security Administrator at TDIndustries. “Deploying NX appliances in all of our distributed offices has helped us share information more easily, which is invaluable to managing large, complex construction and facilities projects.”

Silver Peak leverages a variety of real-time network optimization techniques to maximize application performance across the WAN while minimizing IT operational costs.  These techniques include:

        • Network Acceleration to overcome WAN latency
        • Network Integrity to correct packet loss and WAN quality problems
        • Network Memory™ to maximize WAN bandwidth utilization

Silver Peak’s unique network approach to WAN acceleration  delivers unprecedented scalability, including the highest effective throughput of any WAN acceleration device.  This makes Silver Peak ideal for large enterprise networks and applications with high sustained data volumes.  

Silver Peak optimizes every application that runs over IP, including file, email, web, SQL, Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming video, Citrix, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), real-time data replication, and remote backup.  This provides the best Return on Investment (ROI) for WAN acceleration.

Silver Peak is the only vendor to solve bandwidth, latency, and loss issues in real time, making shared networks (IP VPN and MPLS) perform like private lines.  Enterprises get cost-effective bandwidth with high throughput and predictable performance, making Silver Peak strategic to a variety of business initiatives, from server centralization and storage consolidation to real-time collaboration and disaster recovery.
