In addition to the new VRX-8 virtual WAN optimization appliance, Silver Peak also unveiled enhancements to its WAN software.
Those enhancements include a 50 percent increase in deduplication performance for cutting the amount of data sent across the WAN, and a new management dashboard which provides deep dives on packets going across the WAN for use in managing quality of service performance, Cormier said.
On the branch office side of WAN optimization, Silver Peak also added support for Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments. The company previously support VMware ESX and ESXi environments.
Silver Peak expects to also roll out support for Citrix and KVM virtualization over time.
Cormier said this is important because virtualization has become an important technology in the midrange.
"Some customers use VMware, some use Hyper-V, some use other technologies," he said. "We want to support all customers in the midrange."
