PRESS RELEASE — SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 15, 2015 — As part of its strategy to deliver high-performing broadband and hybrid Wide Area Networks (WANs), Silver Peak today unveiled its new Unity EdgeConnect solution that enables enterprises to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of building a WAN by leveraging broadband to connect users to applications. By empowering customers such as Group Dekko, Interroll, Kingston, and others to use broadband connections to augment or replace their current multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks, Silver Peak improves customer responsiveness, increases application performance, and significantly reduces capital and operational expenses.
“The high cost and limited capacity of WAN connectivity at our remote sites was becoming restrictive to our business and the productivity of our users,” said Chris Edwards, VP of systems for Group Dekko, the leading provider of workplace LED lighting, power delivery solutions and engineered electrical components and assemblies. “With Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect, I can now build a broadband-based WAN that lowers my overall monthly data spend and maximizes the performance of all our applications, including the use of voice over broadband.”
Delivered in both physical and virtual form factors, Unity EdgeConnect creates a virtual network overlay, so that enterprises do not have to replace existing routers and firewalls at branch offices. With Unity EdgeConnect, customers can move to a broadband WAN at their own pace, whether site-by-site, or via a hybrid WAN approach that leverages both MPLS and broadband Internet connectivity (cable, DSL, LTE, etc.). This is often referred to as software-defined WAN (SD-WAN).
Unity EdgeConnect is an overlay solution, which means connectivity decisions are made independent of carriers, avoiding lengthy procurement and deployment delays for faster time to service. Connectivity can be rapidly extended, moved or changed where and when the business demands. With a zero-touch, plug-and-play deployment model, Unity EdgeConnect can be deployed at a branch office in seconds, automatically connecting with other Silver Peak instances in the data center, other branches, or in cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with the likes of Amazon, Microsoft Azure and VMware’s vCloud Air. Key features of Unity EdgeConnect include:
“With an ever-increasing number of applications delivered as a service via cloud infrastructure, it’s important that enterprises be able to move at cloud speed,” explained David Hughes, founder and CEO of Silver Peak. “Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect is the premier solution for customers that want to leverage the Internet more effectively in a secure, controlled, and automated manner while delivering consistent and reliable performance for users connecting to any application.”
Granular Visibility and Control with Unity Orchestrator
Unity Orchestrator is included with Unity EdgeConnect, and provides customers with unprecedented levels of visibility into both legacy and cloud applications, and the unique ability to centrally assign business intent policies to secure and control all WAN traffic. Key features of Unity Orchestrator include:
Boost Application Performance on the Fly
When branch offices are deployed as part of a broadband or hybrid WAN, customers may require higher performance for specific applications, for example, accelerating replication data over distance for disaster recovery. Silver Peak Unity Boost is an optional performance pack that accelerates application performance as needed. With a click of a button, customers can subscribe to Unity Boost.
