Self-service website offers quick and easy access to Silver Peak free product and trials

Silver Peak Systems continues to revolutionise how WAN optimisation is packaged, priced and delivered with the introduction of the Virtual WAN Optimisation Marketplace. This is the industry’s first and only self-service marketplace for WAN optimisation, where anyone can instantly access Silver Peak’s entire portfolio of virtual WAN optimisation appliances, as well as step-by-step instruction for quick and easy deployment anywhere in the network and on all common hypervisors.


Date: 23 Feb 2012

“Virtualisation delivers numerous benefits to the enterprise, from flexible deployment options to rapid cost savings,” said Jim Metzler, founder and vice president at Ashton, Metzler & Associates. “By migrating the WAN optimisation process to an online, self-service model, Silver Peak is helping enterprises capitalise on these benefits while establishing itself as a leader in virtual WAN Optimisation Controllers (vWOCs).”

The Silver Peak Virtual WAN Optimisation Marketplace allows anyone to choose from the industry’s broadest portfolio of virtual appliances running on the broadest range of hypervisors, including VMware vSphere, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V. The Silver Peak VX and VRX virtual appliances range from megabits-per-second (Mbps) to gigabits-per-second (Gbps) in WAN capacity. The Marketplace includes common use cases for the Silver Peak products, a download section to obtain license keys and software images, installation videos, and an online user forum for interaction with Silver Peak experts and other WAN optimisation users.

“When Silver Peak announced its Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) eight months ago, the company promised to change how WAN optimisation was packaged, priced and delivered,” said Rick Tinsley, president and CEO of Silver Peak. “Today, we add another major milestone in making that vision a reality. The Virtual WAN Op Marketplace removes all barriers-to-entry for WAN optimisation and gives anyone instant access to WAN optimisation up to and including our VRX product featuring a full 1 Gbps—20x the capacity of the closest competitor at one-third the price of equivalent hardware appliances.”

The introduction of the Marketplace follows growing adoption of Silver Peak’s VXOA and skyrocketing demand for the recently released Silver Peak VX-X, a free fully-functional virtual WAN optimiser that has been downloaded more than 7,000 times in just five months. Silver Peak VXOA powers the entire family of Silver Peak VX and VRX virtual WAN optimisation appliances. It is an open architecture that facilitates the most cost-effective WAN optimisation deployments on a wide variety of industry standard hardware platforms and hypervisors.

Tinsley added, “The cost-saving benefits of virtualisation both from an acquisition and operations perspective are obvious. What was not so obvious when we started down this path was just how ready the market is for virtual WAN Op. The overwhelming success of the VX-X download programme and accompanying demand for access to the full portfolio drove the creation of the Marketplace.”
