Silver Peak Scales Up WAN Optimizers
WAN optimization vendor Silver Peak bulked up its high-end hardware today, touting its first WAN acceleration product capable of gigabit-per-second speeds.
The vendor has unveiled its NX-9000 device, as part of a strategy it first introduced last year.
This supports up to 1-Gbit/s WAN throughput and 4-Gbit/s LAN throughput, says Jeff Aaron, Silver Peaks vice president of marketing, explaining that users are desperate to speed up WAN traffic for the likes of SAN replication.
The exec says that the 3-rack-unit-high device can shift data at 1-Gbit/s speeds while supporting TCP optimization, quality of service, compression, and data reduction, although these figures are based on Silver Peaks own internal testing.
The vendors previous high-end device, the NX-8000, could handle 500 Mbit/s of WAN throughput and 2-Gbit/s LAN throughput.
