Silver Peak Powers Atlanta Technology's Disaster Recovery and Hosting Services

Silver Peak Simplifies Complex Network Environment With Centralized Policy Control and Automated Configuration

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Silver Peak Systems, Inc. (www.silver-peak.com), a leading provider of scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration solutions, today announced that the company's NX appliances have been deployed by Atlanta Technology Ltd., a leading application service provider in England specializing in converged voice and data applications. Atlanta Technology has installed Silver Peak NX appliances to improve the performance of centrally hosted application servers, while simultaneously improving business continuity through faster data backup and disaster recovery.

"The Silver Peak appliances are core to our hosted service, helping us to deliver exceptional application performance to a wide range of business types including financial, legal professional, media, service and manufacturing organizations," said Mike Kelson, technical director at Atlanta Technologies. "Our requirements for WAN acceleration were precise -- we wanted to centralize the IT infrastructure without spending the Earth on bandwidth. After looking at all our options we chose Silver Peak because they offered better performance across all our voice and data applications and demonstrated superior customer support than the other vendors we evaluated."

Silver Peak NX Series appliances seamlessly fit into any enterprise network, sitting between network resources and the WAN infrastructure that is used to connect them to remote users. Deployment of the NX Series requires absolutely no client, server or application reconfiguration. NX Series appliances use Silver Peak's patent-pending Network Memory™ technology to significantly reduce the amount of data traversing the WAN and ensure LAN-like application performance. In addition, Silver Peak appliances leverage a variety of latency and loss mitigation techniques, compression and Quality of Service (QoS) to improve application usability across a distributed enterprise. The result is order of magnitude performance improvements, reduced IT costs and increased management and security.

"With the click of a mouse, ASPs can centrally configure a variety of WAN optimization and traffic management parameters that can be customized for each individual customer, application and/or end user," said Craig Stouffer, vice president of worldwide marketing at Silver Peak. "By taking the complexity out of deployment, configuration and management, Silver Peak is a natural fit for application service providers like Atlanta Technology that are looking to deploy highly customized WAN acceleration."
