The company’s unique network approach to WAN optimization delivers unprecedented scalability and flexibility, making Silver Peak’s WAN optimization solution a strategic enabler for key IT initiatives, including data center consolidation, data migration, disaster recovery, server centralization, and global application / desktop virtualization.

 

 

Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA)

Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) is Silver Peak’s award winning WAN optimization software. It is used on all Silver Peak NX, VX and VRX products, and includes the following real-time network optimization techniques:

  • Silver Peak’s patent-pending Network Memory™ technology to significantly reduce the amount of data traversing the WAN and ensure LAN-like application performance.
  • Network Acceleration techniques to overcome WAN latency
  • Network Integrity features to mitigate the effects of packet loss across the WAN, including robust Quality of Service (QoS) policies to ensure applications are prioritized appropriately and given adequate network resources.

VXOA also includes advanced features for integration with 3rd party products like routers, switches, servers, and storage arrays, and flexible pricing options for easy WAN optimization deployment. This revolutionizes enterprise networking by enabling WAN optimization to be easily and cost effectively deployed everywhere across an enterprise – not just on a select few links. In addition, the investment in WAN optimization can easily grow with changing end user requirements. With VXOA, ubiquitous WAN optimization is finally a reality.

NX Appliances

Silver Peak’s award winning NX appliances are standalone devices that seamlessly fit into any enterprise network, sitting between network resources and the WAN infrastructure that is used to connect them to remote users. Deployment of NX appliances requires absolutely no client, server, or application reconfiguration.

VX Appliances

VX appliances are software-only versions of NX appliances. They support all the same VXOA features as their NX counterparts, but in a virtualized manner. By deploying Silver Peak’s VX family of appliances on industry standard servers, enterprises reap all the cost and flexibility benefits of server virtualization.

The VX-Xpress is a free, fully functional entry level VX appliance. It is an easy and cost effective way for getting started with WAN optimization, or for deployment of Silver Peak in small point-to-point networks.

VRX Appliances

Silver Peak’s VRX appliances are virtual WAN optimization devices designed specifically for data center deployment. They deliver the highest end-to-end throughput and simultaneous sessions of any virtual WAN optimization device and are proven compatible with all leading storage solutions and data center switching devices.

Global Management System

Global Management System (GMS) is a powerful platform for the deployment, management, and monitoring of a Silver Peak-enabled Wide Area Network (WAN). GMS gives IT managers detailed visibility into all aspects of application delivery across a distributed enterprise, including WAN performance statistics, application analysis, and tools for the configuration and management of Silver Peak NX Series appliances. With Silver Peak, enterprises can centrally deliver business critical applications in a secure, scalable, and cost effective manner.
