Move more. Go farther. Spend Less


Silver Peak’s unique Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) delivers unprecedented scalability and flexibility, enabling enterprises to easily and cost effectively deploy WAN optimization anywhere. VXOA uses real-time network optimization techniques to maximize application performance across the WAN while minimizing IT operational costs.
 

The leader in data center class WAN optimization

Silver Peak’s unique network approach to WAN optimization delivers the following advantages :

  • Virtual Flexibility. Silver Peak provides the industry’s only Gbps virtual WAN optimization appliance, the industry’s only free fully functional WAN optimization appliance, and the only virtual WAN optimization products capable of supporting every major hypervisor.
  • Highest capacity. Silver Peak is the only vendor with both physical and virtual appliances that easily scale from Mbps to Gbps of WAN capacity with support for hundreds of thousands of simultaneous sessions.
  • Optimization of all IP traffic. Only Silver Peak optimizes all enterprise traffic regardless of transport protocol or application version, with no risk of corrupting data or altering application behavior.
 
 
 
 

Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA)

Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) is Silver Peak’s award winning WAN optimization software. It is used on all Silver Peak NX, VX and VRX products, and includes the following real-time network optimization techniques:
  • Silver Peak's patent-pending Network Memory™ technology to significantly reduce the amount of data traversing the WAN and ensure LAN-like application performance.
  • Network Acceleration techniques to overcome WAN latency
  • Network Integrity features to mitigate the effects of packet loss across the WAN, including robust Quality of Service (QoS) policies to ensure applications are prioritized appropriately and given adequate network resources.

Benefits of Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA)

Network Memory


Silver Peak's patent-pending solution for disk based WAN deduplication.

Network Memory inspects all traffic that is sent between clients and servers, storing information as a local instance in Silver Peak appliances.

Repetitive information is delivered locally rather than sent across the WAN, improving application performance and WAN utilization. Cross-flow payload and header compression provide additional gains on first-time data transfers and non-repetitive traffic.
 

Network Integrity


Silver Peak employs a variety of real-time techniques to address packet delivery issues common to shared WAN technologies, such as MPLS and IP VPN.

These include adaptive Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Packet Order Correction (POC) to overcome dropped and out-of-order packets, and advanced Quality of Service (QoS) techniques to prioritize traffic and guarantee network resources.
 

Network Acceleration


Silver Peak mitigates the impacts of latency across the WAN by using various TCP acceleration techniques, like adjustable window sizing and selective acknowledgements, as well as CIFS acceleration techniques, such as read-aheads and write-behinds.

These tools help to overcome inherent chattiness that can otherwise hamper application performance across a WAN.
 

Secure Content Architecture™


Silver Peak keeps enterprise data secure with its Secure Content Architecture.

All NX appliances are equipped with hardware based AES encryption to protect local data stores.

Optional IPsec keeps content safe when it traverses the WAN. Intelligent security policies can be established for granular control of WAN traffic.
