Silver Peak Launches Gigabit Class Virtual WAN Optimization Appliance

WAN optimization vendor Silver Peak this week announced its latest virtual WAN optimization technology - a new solution that can deliver as much as 1 Gbps of WAN throughput. The new VRX-8 is built on top of Silver Peak Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) that was officially announced last month.

"The VRX-8 is a gigabit class WAN optimization appliance and it's unique in the industry," Rick Tinsley, president and CEO of Silver Peak told InternetNews.com. "To put it into perspective, the highest performance virtual WAN optimization appliance from any of our competitors is a 50 megabit product, this is a gigabit product, so it has twenty times more capacity."

Tinsley added that Silver Peak also increased the flow count on the device to 256,000. The VRX-8 is able to support the VMware, Xen and KVM hypervisors. Currently Silver Peak does not support Microsoft's Hyper-V, due to what Tinsely referred to as, 'performance limitations'.
