The requirements for WAN optimization are evolving from legacy hardware-based offerings to software that is deployed more quickly and easily anywhere in the world. The Comms Business Awards agree and have just recently named Silver Peak’s VRX-8 virtual WAN optimizer the winner of the “Most Innovative Channel Product of the Year (software).”
The Comms Business Awards are independently judged to recognize excellence and those who truly set the standard in the channel, making it one of the industry’s most acclaimed accolades. Silver Peak emerged among offerings from Liquid Voice, Siemens Enterprise Communications, Union Street Technologies and Zeacom Europe in the category of “on-premise software.”
Silver Peak’s VXOA software truly is in a class above all the others, and this is yet another proof point. Silver Peak is providing the highest performance for accelerating data movement over distance and giving users and the channel the flexibility to deploy WAN optimization anywhere it is needed.
The Silver Peak VRX-8 is the industry’s first and only software-based WAN optimizer specifically designed for the rigours of moving large amounts of data between data centers, branch offices and the cloud. It is the highest-performance software appliance on the market, supporting up to 256,000 simultaneous connections with up to 1 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) of end-to-end WAN throughput. The Silver Peak VRX-8 delivers 20-times more performance than the next closest competitor.
