Silver Peak leads the WAN Optimisation market;

Virtual Flexibility
Silver Peak offers the industry’s only multi-gigabit virtual WAN optimisation solution and is the only WAN optimisation solution to run on every major hypervisor. The software is available for immediate download and free trial via the Silver Peak software marketplace.
Industry-Leading
Silver Peak continues to lead the industry in WAN optimisation capacity and performance. With the broadest portfolio of physical and virtual WAN optimisation products, and support for up to 10 gig WAN environments, Silver Peak delivers the most cost-effective WAN optimisation for branch offices, data centres, and the cloud.
Accelerate Any Application
Silver Peak’s WAN optimisation products improve the performance of all enterprise and cloud applications, regardless of transport protocol or version. This is done all without the risk of corrupting data or altering application behaviour. No plug-ins are required, which expedites deployment and saves both time and money.
Cloud-Ready
Silver Peak VX virtual WAN optimisation appliances can be deployed directly within Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and VMware vCloud Air. This allows enterprises to easily extend their WAN optimisation deployment into the cloud.
VX Virtual WAN Optimisation Software – Leading Performance and Virtualisation Flexibility
Silver Peak VX virtual WAN optimisation software combines the cost and flexibility benefits of virtualisation with the performance gains delivered by Silver Peak’s industry-leading WAN optimisation technology. Silver Peak VX virtual appliances support the full list of Silver Peak WAN optimisation features for maximum functionality, including data reduction, path conditioning and traffic shaping. This enables customers to overcome bandwidth, distance and quality challenges when moving data over the WAN.
NX Physical WAN Optimisation Appliances
Setting the Bar in WAN Optimisation Performance and Scalability
Silver Peak NX appliances are the industry’s highest-performance WAN optimisation solutions, delivering three-times the WAN performance and capacity of the nearest competing products. The Silver Peak NX WAN optimisation appliances are sized for the smallest of branch offices to the world’s largest data centres and disaster recovery sites, supporting up to 5 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of WAN capacity and 512,000 simultaneous flows.

These WAN optimisation appliances fit seamlessly into any enterprise network, sitting between network resources and the WAN infrastructure. With Silver Peak NX appliances, customers can overcome network bandwidth, distance and quality challenges when moving data over the WAN. The products require absolutely no client, server, or application reconfiguration to deploy. Planning to virtualise your infrastructure in the future? Silver Peak’s Software for Life program allows customers to purchase Silver Peak NX appliances today and convert to VX software at any time for free. This ensures maximum flexibility and protection for your WAN optimisation investment.
Broadband WAN

Save up to 90% in WAN costs by deploying secure, optimised broadband connectivity. As enterprise applications migrate from the corporate data centre to the cloud, private line connections such as multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) have proven to be overly rigid and expensive. In today’s wide area network (WAN), the opportunity to achieve “cloud speed” is better served with a broadband-based WAN, also referred to as a software defined WAN (SD-WAN). Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect enables enterprises to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of building a WAN by leveraging broadband to connect users to applications. By empowering customers to use broadband connections to augment or replace their current MPLS networks, Silver Peak improves customer responsiveness, increases application performance, and significantly reduces capital and operational expenses.

Unity EdgeConnect Solution
The Unity EdgeConnect solution comprises three components;

  • Unity EdgeConnect physical or virtual appliances (supporting any common hypervisor) deployed in branch offices to create a secure, virtual network overlay. This enables customers to move to a broadband WAN at their own pace, whether site-by-site, or via a hybrid WAN approach that leverages MPLS and broadband Internet connectivity.
  • Unity Orchestrator is included with Unity EdgeConnect appliance deployments and provides unprecedented levels of visibility into both legacy and cloud applications, and the unique ability to centrally assign business intent policies to secure and control all WAN traffic. Policy automation speeds and simplifies the deployment of multiple branch offices.
  • Unity Boost is an optional performance pack that accelerates application performance as needed. The Boost component is unique to Unity EdgeConnect and allows companies to improve the performance of specific applications or locations.

Unity EdgeConnect Key Features

  • Zero-Touch Provisioning: A plug-and-play deployment model enables Unity EdgeConnect to be deployed at a branch office in seconds, automatically connecting with other Silver Peak instances in the data centre, other branches, or in cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with the likes of Amazon, Microsoft Azure and VMware’s vCloud Air
  • Dynamic Path Control (DPC): Real-time traffic steering is applied over any broadband or MPLS link based on company defined business intent policies. In the event of an outage or brownout, DPC automatically switches-over to a secondary connection in about one second
  • WAN Hardening: Data is secured edge-to-edge via 256-bit AES encrypted tunnels. No unauthorised outside traffic is allowed to enter the branch. With the option to deploy EdgeConnect directly onto the Internet, WAN hardening secures branch offices without the appliance sprawl and operating costs of deploying and managing dedicated firewalls.
  • Path Conditioning: Techniques to improve performance overcome the adverse effects of dropped and out-of-order packets that are common with broadband Internet and MPLS connections. Path Conditioning provides private-line-like performance over the public Internet.
  • Cloud Intelligence: Real-time updates on the best performing path to reach hundreds of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, ensuring users connect to those applications in the fastest, most intelligent way available

Orchestrator Key Features

  • Single Screen Administration:Enables quick and easy implementation of network-wide business intent policies, which eliminates complex and error-prone policy changes at every branch.
  • Real-Time Monitoring and Historical Reporting: Provides specific details into application, location, and network statistics, including continuous performance monitoring of loss, latency, and packet ordering for all network paths. All HTTP and native application traffic are identified by name and location, and alarms and alerts allow for faster resolution of service provider issues.
  • Bandwidth Cost Savings Reports: Documents the cost savings for moving to broadband connectivity.
  • Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN Solution Orchestrator Enables Faster SD-WAN Deployments Unity Orchestrator, included with Unity EdgeConnect, enables zero-touch provisioning of Unity EdgeConnect appliances in the branch. Orchestrator automates the assignment of business intent policies to ensure faster and easier connectivity across multiple branches, eliminating the configuration drift that can come from manually updating rules and access control lists (ACLs) on a site-by-site basis.
    Unity Orchestrator enables customers to;

    • Avoid WAN re-configurations by delivering applications to users in customised virtual overlays.
    • Align application delivery to business goals through business intent policies.
    • Simplify branch deployments with EdgeConnect Profiles that describe the virtual and physical configuration of the location.
