Priva Accelerates NetApp Replication with Silver Peak

When Storage Area Network (SAN) replication stalls, some companies might just throw more bandwidth at the problem, but not Priva B.V. The Dutch manufacturer of building management and climate control systems makes a point of conserving natural resources – and WAN bandwidth, apparently. Instead of purchasing more bandwidth to replicate traffic between its Dutch locations, Priva improved NetApp® SnapMirror replication nearly six-fold with Silver Peak WAN acceleration. “Our partner, Storedata, recommended we try Silver Peak,” says Ed de Jong, IT network engineer at Priva, “We found we were able to move nearly ten-times the data over our existing Internet connection, without spending a single Euro more on bandwidth.”
