Multi-Gigabit WAN Optimization Hyper-V
Hyper-V goes Multi-Gigabit over the WAN (Video)

The performance of hypervisors has reached a new level of intense competition. This video demonstrates the industry’s first and only multi-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) WAN acceleration solution for Windows Server Hyper-V environments. Silver Peak’s virtual offering for Windows Server Hyper-V now extends from small remote offices to large data centers, giving Microsoft Corp.’s hypervisor customers a highly flexible and cost-effective solution for maximizing the performance of application and storage traffic over a wide area network (WAN).

Silver Peak continues to be the only WAN optimization vendor to support gigabit/multi-gigabit virtual WAN acceleration, on any standard hypervisor. This represents a significant performance milestone for virtualization, not just for Silver Peak, which has done gigabit/multi-gigabit virtual performance for quite a while, but for Microsoft with the “innovation delivered in Windows Server 2012.” We are now seeing a leveling of the playing field with hypervisor performance, where VMware no longer has a performance stranglehold at the high-end of the market.

Brian Hillger, director of server and tools marketing for Microsoft, said, “Silver Peak’s multi-gigabit WAN acceleration on Windows Server Hyper-V represents impressive virtual performance based on the innovation delivered in Windows Server 2012.”
