Advent Software, Inc., is a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry with more than 4,500 client firms around the world. Like so many large, international enterprises, Advent required high-performance WAN connectivity between its 21 global branch offices as well as its data centers, but bandwidth limitations, latency and packet loss that can impair application use and delivery.
Silver Peak announced today that Advent is addressing these issues by standardizing on the company’s data center class WAN optimization appliances. Silver Peak’s award-winning WAN optimization appliances enable Advent to optimize its WAN between offices in San Francisco, Boston, London, Beijing, and beyond.
Advent selected Silver Peak for its real-time network optimization techniques that allowed Advent to achieve a more than ten-fold improvement in application and throughput performance. This ultimately reduced Advent’s IT operational costs while improving application performance between distributed branch offices and regionalized data centers. Other key factors included Silver Peak’s industry-leading scale, ease-of-use, and unique ability to optimize all traffic over lower-cost shared WAN infrastructures.
