Apposite Helps Benchmark Silver Peak Performance Gains

Linktropy WAN Emulators Simulate Enterprise Network Conditions to Validate Silver Peak NX Scalability and ROI


LOS ANGELES, CA (April 27, 2009) - Apposite® Technologies, the leader in affordable, professional-quality network simulation products, today announced that their Linktropy WAN emulators have been qualified by Silver Peak Systems to benchmark the WAN acceleration capabilities of Silver Peak's NX appliances.

Wide Area Network conditions, including bandwidth, latency, packet loss, and other link impairments, can hinder the performance of applications running between geographically distributed locations. Apposite's Linktropy WAN emulators simulate these WAN conditions to help IT managers and network administrators test the performance of enterprise applications in the lab.

Silver Peak, the leader in scalable WAN acceleration, overcomes these impairments to optimize the performance of applications over the WAN. Silver Peak's NX appliances perform real-time network optimization techniques that enhance the performance of all IP applications, including file transfers, email, web, SQL, Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming video, Citrix, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), real-time data replication, and remote backups.

Silver Peak's interoperability testing has verified that Apposite's Linktropy WAN emulators can emulate links of 1 Gbps and beyond, making them ideal for testing the full range of Silver Peak's highly scalable accelerators. Enterprise users can take advantage of Linktropy WAN emulators to benchmark the performance of mission-critical applications without acceleration, then measure the performance gains and Return on Investment (ROI) provided by inserting Silver Peak's NX appliances on the WAN.

"Seeing the impact of network conditions on application performance is the key to understanding the value in WAN acceleration," said Jeff Aaron, vice president of marketing at Silver Peak. "We're pleased that Apposite's products make it easy for enterprise users to accurately simulate real-world conditions as it helps our customers understand the complex WAN challenges that Silver Peak's solution overcomes."

"By using Apposite's WAN emulators with Silver Peak's WAN acceleration products, enterprises now have an easy way not only to identify application performance issues, but a scalable and efficient solution to overcome them," said DC Palter, Apposite president.
