Peribit Refreshes Lineup

Peribit's appliances are designed to improve WAN performance by prioritizing traffic, reducing repetitive data patterns and speeding application-response times. As a result, customers can hold off on circuit and hardware upgrades, often seeing a return on their investments within several months, solution providers said. The product rollouts are Peribit's first since launching its U.S. channel program last month.

"The new products are going to allow us to add larger market opportunities and increase the value proposition of products we offer in other areas," said Jason Gress, founder and executive vice president of InterVision Systems Technologies, a Santa Clara, Calif., solution provider. Peribit's WAN optimization appliances complement InterVision's disaster-recovery solutions, he said.

Peribit's new Sequence Mirror family of caching and compression appliances support Network Sequence Mirroring, its new technology for recognizing data patterns and reducing traffic that must be retransmitted over WAN links. "Sometimes [application] users make minor changes, but the majority of the material stays the same. We can completely eliminate that from being resent across the network," said Dan Leary, vice president of product management at Peribit, Santa Clara.

The first product in the family, the SM-500, features dual 250-Gbyte hard drives and supports circuits from 256 Kbps to 20 Mbps. It is slated to ship in August at a starting price of $9,000.

Peribit also is expanding its Sequence Reducer optimization appliance line with the SR-100, designed to support high-speed connectivity between data centers. Available now at a starting price of $24,000, it supports compressed output at OC-3 fiber-optic transmission speeds.

In addition, Peribit is introducing version 5.0 of its Sequence Reduction System software and PeriSphere, its new architecture for integrating compression, sequence caching, latency reduction, bandwidth management path optimization and visibility tools into its hardware and software.
