VX-Xpress Surpasses 1,000 Downloads in One Week!

Silver Peak VX-Xpress logoIt’s hard to believe it’s been just over one week since we launched the VX-Xpress (www.vx-xpress.com) at VMworld in Las Vegas.  There is always so much excitement and nervousness surrounding the launch of any new product, particularly when it’s something radically new and game-changing like the VX-Xpress is for the WAN optimization market.

The great news is that interest continues to build and the results are stunning: 1,300+ downloads in just over one week!

Let’s recap: The Silver Peak VX-Xpress is the first free, fully-functional virtual WAN optimization appliance. It optimizes two-node networks with up to 4 Mbps of WAN capacity, and is perfect for site-to-site applications such as replication for disaster recovery, file sharing, SharePoint, unified communications, and many others.

Some people might be wary of “the catch” with free products. Well, rest-assured, with the VX-Xpress, there are no gimmicks or strings attached to this product. VX-Xpress is a free fully-functional product that doesn’t expire.

And while we are extremely proud of the product, we are equally excited about the new User Forum that is available to registered users on the VX-Xpress site. At www.vx-xpress.com, you can find answers to commonly asked questions, and interact with other users and Silver Peak product managers to share experiences and success stories with our products. We encourage you to keep sharing your experiences and questions in the forum.

Whether you are new to WAN optimization or new to Silver Peak, the VX-Xpress is a “must-see.”

    Has the Free version of VX-Xpress been silently assassinated? I’m not able to find any mention of it or a download link on the site?

  • Vivian Xu

    HI Vusi,

    Thank you for your interest. I am the product manager for VX products at Silver Peak.

    The free version of VX-Xpress is no longer avaiable. You can download any of our VX products for a 30-day free trial here : http://marketplace.silver-peak.com. It comes with full technical support.

    Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

    “VX-Xpress is a free fully-functional product that doesn’t expire.”
    My appliance says it is going to expire in October, how do I stop it from expiring?

      We appreciate your interest in Silver Peak. Though we no longer offer the VX-X as a product, we want to continue to support your WAN optimization needs. To do this, there are a couple of options:

      1. We can provide you with new perpetual license keys for your existing VX-X appliances. These do not expire, but because the VX-X code is frozen there will not be any upgrades to this product going forward.

      2. Alternately, we can offer you a free one year subscription on two VX-1000s. With the VX-1000s you get full support, the ability to upgrade to any of the larger VX appliances if needed in the future, support for multi-site implementation, and support for all major hypervisors. (None of this functionality is available on the VX-X).

      The choice is yours. We just need to get your email address so we can follow-up directly and collect a bit more information.

      Thanks very much for your interest in Silver Peak.

        Thanks for the reply.
        I would like to take you up on the offer of a perpertual license for my existing VX-X applicances.
        My email address is in my profile, is this visible to you as a mod?

          It is — one of our representatives should be reaching out to you shortly. Thanks!

          • Luke

            Thanks Silver-Peak, all sorted.

  • Darren Q

    I’m also currently stranded with an expired VX-X, and would like to continue using it until such time that I’m able to upgrade. I would greatly appreciate any support from Silver Peak as I was a big fan of yours but now I can’t find any trace that VX-Xpress even ever existed.

    I am using VX-X as well and would like to request perpetual license keys as well. I am using it for my own test lab and the license keys were expired. I would really appreciate the support from Silver Peak.
