15 WAN Optimization Players VARs Should Know


Silver Peak Systems

Silver Peak offers WAN optimization through its NX appliances and VX virtual appliances, including different levels of optimization for UDP and TCP with a broad range of appliances intended for large data centers, small branch offices and various settings in between those two sizes. Silver Peak in mid-July launched Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA), which broadens the WAN optimization software used in all of Silver Peak's main product lines by making available a software development kit (SDK), an API and a number of new pricing options -- all with the idea of making Silver Peak products better compatible with third-party servers, blades, storage arrays and network routers. VXOA comes available as subscription-based, pay-as-you-go licensing.
