Hypervisor competition continues to intensify, and today, it reaches a new crest on Citrix XenServer. This video demonstrates the industry’s first and only multi-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) data acceleration solution for Citrix XenServer environments.
Silver Peak’s virtual software for Citrix XenServer now extends across small remote offices and large data centers, giving Citrix hypervisor customers a highly flexible and cost-effective solution for maximizing the performance of application and storage traffic over the wide area network (WAN).
This is also another key data point in the competitive WAN optimization market, where Riverbed and Silver Peak continue to duke it out for ultimate domination. But today, Silver Peak gets another notch in the belt, and continues to be the only vendor to support multi-Gbps virtual WAN acceleration on any standard hypervisor.
In the virtual world, this is a significant performance milestone and further evidence of a leveling-of-the-playing-field with hypervisor performance.
