Silver Peak Systems announced the integration of its virtual WAN optimization software with the new Dell PowerEdge VRTX converged IT solution for branch offices.

Silver Peak extends the Dell VRTX high-performance “data center-in-a-box” capabilities with up to 20x faster communications to additional remote offices, data centers and the cloud over any wide area network.

As users become more distributed and application requirements expand, it becomes more difficult to deliver IT services to branch offices. Dell PowerEdge VRTX addresses these challenges by converging server, storage and networking functionality into a single, office-optimized chassis.

However, a challenge remains when users in branch offices need to communicate with other remote users, access centralized applications in data centers, or connect to cloud services. Silver Peak WAN optimization software complements the Dell VRTX platform to solve these challenges and overcome limited WAN bandwidth, distance, and poor network quality that hinders branch office productivity and data mobility performance.

“Running a mix of different hardware in today’s branch office is inefficient, costly, and no longer necessary,” said Brian Payne, executive director for PowerEdge servers at Dell.

“The Dell PowerEdge VRTX redefines the remote office data center by reducing hardware sprawl and converging best-in-class server, storage and networking in a compact footprint for the branch. Silver Peak understands this model well and its software-based WAN optimization complements the Dell VRTX to help customers reduce costs of long-distance networking and data acceleration between branch offices, data centers and the cloud.”
