Array Networks Expands aCelera WAN Optimization Product Line with New WAN1100 Small Office Appliance
MILPITAS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking,
today announces the immediate availability of its new aCelera WAN1100
WAN optimization controller product. The new WAN1100 is a tabletop
hardware appliance designed to bring WAN optimization to small and
remote office environments. Featuring an unmatched combination of size,
simplicity and price-performance, the WAN1100 is engineered to broaden
hub-and-spoke application acceleration deployment while accelerating
return on investment.
Many small and remote offices share a similar profile: they are often
serviced by smaller Internet connections and are unlikely to be staffed
by a team of IT experts. Nonetheless, workers at these locations require
applications to function seamlessly in order carry out their job
functions and maximize productivity.
With the WAN1100, remote and small offices can benefit from the same
application experience gained by workers located at headquarters and
major branch office facilities. The compact new appliance ships easily
and mounts on virtually any surface. Moreover, any office worker can
easily plug in, connect and power on the appliance; from there,
configuration can be pushed from a centralized management system or
performed remotely by IT. Starting at a list rice of less than $2,000
for 10Mbps throughput and 40 concurrent TCP connections, WAN1100
appliances enable ROI that makes WAN optimization economically
justifiable for more locations than ever before.
The new aCelera appliance may be used to accelerate a broad range of
application traffic, including Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, IBM, Dell (News - Alert), file
transfers, backup and replication and others. In independent tests
performed by Miercom-transferring a 1MB file over a 1.5Mbps connection
using CIFS or HTTP-aCelera delivered 99% performance improvements,
transferring files in mere seconds as compared to hours without aCelera.
Moreover, in a test of random Microsoft (News - Alert) Office file types and sizes,
file transfers that normally required 45 minutes to complete, took only
11 minutes with aCelera.
"The new aCelera WAN1100 appliance gives customers another solution to
assist in solving application delivery networking challenges," said
Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks (News - Alert). "Customers were very
enthusiastic about the performance of Array's aCelera product line and
requested an entry-level product to allow even broader WAN optimization
deployment. The WAN1100 is yet another example of Array's ability to
rapidly respond to customer requirements and market demand."
In addition to broadening Array's WAN optimization product portfolio,
the launch of the WAN1100 also strengthens Array's solution focus in
areas such as cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS (News - Alert)). For providers
using Array APV Series application delivery controllers to provide
high-availability for cloud services, the new aCelera WAN1100 may be
used to provide accelerated performance to select customers for which
limited connectivity may have been impacting the end-user experience.
Array Networks aCelera WAN1100 WAN Optimization Controllers are
available immediately. For additional information on the WAN1100,
