The flexible acceleration solution
As businesses become increasingly global, more workers are remotely connected to their applications and data. Not only are they communicating over slower links than the LANs they used to work on, many applications still use protocols that were designed to run on a LAN. Despite throwing additional network bandwidth at the problem, applications like file sharing which uses the CIFS (Common Internet File System) protocol, still suffer with poor performance because of the excessive chattiness and the higher latency of the WAN connection. The result is that user productivity is constrained, which results in IT support staff being inundated with complaints.
What is needed is a solution that has the Layer 7 application intelligence to mitigate not only the chattiness of these legacy protocols but also improve the performance of protocols like HTTP or iSCSI when they are used over a WAN. The Certeon aCelera family of software WAN optimization products provides a scalable solution for all environments; from a single mobile user, to a small branch office, up to a corporate data center and even out to a cloud computing environment. The aCelera’s Application Acceleration Blueprint technology when combined with the Certeon Single Instance Store de-duplication technology provides market leading performance gains.
The aCelera solution provides LAN like performance no matter where in the world the application and data is being accessed from. User productivity can be significantly improved when file access times are reduced by 95%. These improvements result in bottom line savings that your organization can take to the bank.
