Certeon Delivers Virtual Appliance

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Certeon today announced it has ended the era of proprietary application acceleration appliances with the launch of the industrys first and only true virtual appliance for application acceleration. Certeon’s aCelera™ Virtual Appliance software delivers up to a 95% reduction in application response time for applications being accessed across the wide area network (WAN), with the added benefit of eliminating the hardware footprint and high cost of separately managed, single-purpose hardware appliances.

With IT managers rapidly migrating to virtualized environments, distributed enterprises require an application acceleration solution that leverages the ease of use, scalability and flexibility of their virtualized infrastructure while delivering the same remote access performance benefits provided by traditional application acceleration. Certeon’s aCelera software meets this need by providing an application acceleration virtual appliance that runs natively within a virtual machine infrastructure. Now IT managers can quickly and easily download and deploy high-performance virtualized acceleration environments for remote users and reduce the amount of costly, energy- consuming single purpose hardware in data centers and remote offices.

VIRTERA (formerly CRI Technologies), a leading virtualization professional services company focused on assessing, designing, architecting, implementing and managing virtualized environments, is a strategic partner and was a beta test site for aCelera. Howard Pavony, CEO of VIRTERA, states: “As organizations consolidate servers, desktops and applications using virtualization, they place excessive strain on their corporate networks. The combination of aCelera products and VIRTERA professional services create an ideal solution for alleviating this network strain while ensuring that enterprises experience a successful virtualization deployment that meets their core business objectives.”
