Embarcadero Technologies Selects Silver Peak for WAN Acceleration

NX Appliances Accelerate the Transfer of Development Files Across Global WAN

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - Silver Peak Systems (www.silver-peak.com), a leading provider of scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration solutions, today announced that Embarcadero Technologies, a provider of professional-grade database tools, has selected Silver Peak NX appliances to accelerate data transfers between the company's international locations. With Silver Peak's WAN acceleration technology, Embarcadero has improved employee collaboration and streamlined the company's workflow processes by reducing the amount of time required to share key development files across the company's global Wide Area Network (WAN).

"Without WAN acceleration, it was taking several hours to transfer critical files between the United States, Canada and Europe," said Ashish Shah, network engineer at Embarcadero Technologies. "By overcoming significant bandwidth and latency challenges across our WAN, Silver Peak reduced these transfer times to several minutes. As a result, the NX appliances have become a key enabler to our core business functions."

The Silver Peak solution is optimized to support large networks, delivering the best performance on high capacity WAN links and across many distributed enterprise locations. Silver Peak offers the industry's premier solution for disk-based data reduction -- Network Memory™ -- which reduces over 95 percent of WAN traffic and ensures LAN-like application performance across the WAN by eliminating the transfer of duplicate data. Network Memory works on all enterprise applications, regardless of transport protocol (TCP, UDP or proprietary) or latency requirements. As a result, Silver Peak is commonly used to accelerate a variety of business-critical applications, including real-time data replication, remote backup, SQL, file, email, web, Voice over IP (VoIP) and streaming video.
