Silver Peak Systems, the leader in scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration, today announced that Symitar, a Jack Henry & Associates division that is the leading provider of core processing solutions for credit unions, has selected Silver Peak as a strategic platform for WAN acceleration.
With the combined Symitar/Silver Peak solution, credit unions running Symitar's Episys core processing platform can access and protect more data across the WAN while lowering ongoing IT operational expenditures.
"As credit unions grow, there is a need for larger bandwidth and 'cleaner' WAN connections to support strategic initiatives like content management and data backup," said Rick Phillips, product manager at Symitar. "WAN optimization is a key enabler because it increases available bandwidth and reduces data transfer times while avoiding expensive WAN upgrades. After extensive testing, we determined that Silver Peak's WAN optimization is the best fit for our credit union customers because it delivers the highest level of performance, scalability, and security."
Silver Peak leverages a variety of real-time network optimization techniques to maximize application performance across the WAN while minimizing IT operational costs. These techniques include:
- Network Acceleration to overcome WAN latency,
- Network Integrity to correct packet loss and WAN quality problems, and
- Network Memory(TM) to maximize WAN bandwidth utilization.
Silver Peak's unique network approach to WAN acceleration delivers unprecedented scalability, including the highest effective throughput of any WAN acceleration device. This makes Silver Peak ideal for large enterprise networks and applications with high sustained data volumes.
Silver Peak optimizes every application that runs over IP, including file, email, Web, SQL, RDP, Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming video, Citrix, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), real-time data replication, and remote backup. This provides the best Return on Investment (ROI) for WAN acceleration.
