EDC Deploys Silver Peak for Real-Time Access to Centralized Servers

Silver Peak Systems, a provider of scalable WAN acceleration solutions, has announced that Education Development Center, a non-profit organization, has deployed its NX appliances to accelerate access to the company's centralized file servers.

In addition, Education Development Center (EDC) will use Silver Peak's WAN acceleration to optimize the performance of web services, email, and video conferencing, while accelerating the backup of key data using Compellent replication, Data Domain de-duplication, and Commvault remote backup software.

The Silver Peak solution is optimized to support large networks, delivering the best performance on high capacity WAN links and across many distributed enterprise locations. Silver Peak offers the industry's premier solution for disk-based WAN deduplication - Network Memory - which reduces more than 95% of WAN traffic and ensures LAN-like application performance across the WAN by eliminating the transfer of duplicate data.

Network Memory works on all enterprise applications, regardless of transport protocol (TCP, UDP or proprietary) or latency requirements. As a result, Silver Peak is commonly used to accelerate a variety of business-critical applications, including real-time data replication, remote backup, SQL, file, email, web, VoIP and streaming video.
