One IT distributor in the Emerald Isles appears to embrace the phrase “Erin go Bragh” – Ireland is Forever – as a charge for progressive technology as it prepares to make available to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland an award-winning WAN optimization solution from the United States.
Commtech, one of Ireland’s leading IT distributors, has contracted to distribute the entire portfolio of Silver Peak data center class WAN optimization appliances to resellers across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It now will leverage its strong installed base of resellers in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to provide firms with Silver Peak’s industry-leading data center class WAN optimization solution.
As data centers around the globe become increasingly more centralized and stored data is increasingly accessed via wide area networks (WANs), the need to optimize WANs and overcome their typical issues with latency and packet loss has become amplified.
Through Commtech, Silver Peak’s virtual and physical appliances will enable enterprises throughout the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to deploy WAN optimization in all business locations and for all enterprise applications — in a cost-effective manner. This is achieved by enabling large amounts of data to be moved across long distances, while saving money by avoiding WAN bandwidth upgrades and leveraging MPLS, Internet VPN and cloud technologies. Silver Peak also provides a strategic solution to a variety of data center class initiatives, such as data center consolidation, disaster recovery, server centralization and desktop virtualization.
