Today, we made another significant step forward in extending our WAN optimization leadership to countries throughout the world with the expansion of our partnership with Dell. Customers can now purchase Silver Peak WAN optimization through Dell in over 30 countries throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
As part of global expansion with Dell, Silver Peak is now recognized as a Dell SnP global preferred partner for WAN optimization—a significant milestone that will enable more companies worldwide to easily and cost-effectively deploy and use WAN optimization in data centers, branch offices and the cloud.
I think Arpit Joshipura, head of marketing and product management for Dell Networking, says it best: “Silver Peak is well aligned with our Virtual Network Architecture (VNA) where network resources are open, easily provisioned and managed, providing scalability for future growth. Whether replicating data over distance, implementing VDI across the enterprise, or accessing data in the cloud, Silver Peak helps customers quickly and easily optimize wide area networks and reduce investments in WAN infrastructure.”
Silver Peak truly is the perfect complement to Dell solutions by extending LAN-like performance across the entire enterprise and to the cloud. Whether its EqualLogic storage, Compellent, Dell PowerConnect, or Dell Force 10, the combination of Silver Peak virtual WAN optimization and Dell translates into increased simplicity and lower costs for enabling and optimizing distributed applications.
Silver Peak’s Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) can be purchased through Dell on Silver Peak NX appliances or, alternatively, Silver Peak’s VX and VRX virtual appliances can be deployed as software instances on Dell PowerEdge™ servers. Either way, customers get a flexible and highly-customizable solution for enterprise-wide WAN optimization with unprecedented scalability—from megabits-per-second (Mbps) to multi-gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of WAN capacity.
We’ll be with Dell at Interop Las Vegas this week sharing the news. If you’re there, please come by Dell booth #1727 to see me or someone from the Silver Peak team to learn more about our integrations with Dell networking, server and storage products.
