Customers around the globe are reaping the benefits of software-based WAN optimization. Australia’s largest independent locally-owned manufacturer and distributor of wood-based building products is no exception. Gunnersen has implemented Silver Peak to ensure its recovery point objectives (RPO) are achieved.
Gunnersen was experiencing severe network difficulties and unable to achieve its disaster recovery (DR) goals despite having upgraded its bandwidth from 4 megabit-per-second (Mbps) to 10 Mbps connection.
“We were amazed when Silver Peak’s solution far exceeded our WAN performance target,” said Stephen Watson, information systems (IS) manager for Gunnersen. “The Silver Peak software achieved between more than 80% compression on DR, and network traffic dropped from flat-out on 10 Mbps to less than 3 Mbps on average. Actual throughput was greater than 60 Mbps on a 10 Mbps connection. The performance is incredible and the results have been stunning – beyond belief,” added Watson.
