Exinda Intros v5 Firmware

BOSTON -- Exinda Networks, a leading provider of wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions, today introduced its new v5.0 firmware that will enable the company to be a formidable competitor for providing WAN optimization solutions for the server consolidation, disaster recovery planning (DRP), business continuity planning (BCP) and the data storage and replication markets. Exindas WAN optimization technology is used to improve the speed of applications running on corporate wide area networks (WAN) by classifying, prioritizing and accelerating applications and controlling recreational Internet traffic. Exinda’s new v5.0 firmware provides greater application performance improvement gains and helps to simplify the WAN optimization process.

Exinda’s new v5.0 firmware yields better application performance improvements, particularly for corporate environments involving large files and high speed Internet links. The new capabilities include:

  • New hard disk caching with 1,000 times more caching capacity provides improved application performance for end users.
  • Stream-based caching, which is more efficient than packet-based caching, greatly reduces repetitive WAN traffic.

“Exinda’s new firmware will give us the application performance boost we need to dramatically improve our data storage and replication process,” said Stuart Ekins, information systems manager at Schenker UK. “With its enhanced capabilities, we can significantly reduce the time it takes to transfer files and greatly reduce our monthly communications costs.”
