Vision Solutions And Peribit Networks Enter Into Global Distribution Agreement
New Offerings Accelerate Application Performance and Provide Customers a Highly Cost-Effective Alternative to Increasing Bandwidth Requirements
Santa Clara, Calif. – March 28, 2005 – Vision Solutions, the industry standard in eServer High Availability and Peribit™ Networks, a leader in application delivery over the WAN have entered into a global distribution agreement under which Vision will market and sell Peribit products both directly and through its global partner network to customers.
High availability and data replication best practices require near real-time transfer of business-critical and time-sensitive data through communication lines to remote locations. In many cases, existing WAN links are already operating at maximum capacity and cannot accommodate the additional loads that data replication traffic imposes. In addition, data replication traffic can adversely impact the performance of other business-critical applications and file sharing programs when running through the same communication lines. Unfortunately, simply upgrading bandwidth is often not the answer due to both cost and access to available lines. The solution is to compress and minimize data flow while maintaining integrity in the data.
“The significance of this partnership between industry leaders is the combination of complementary technologies that will deliver a solution specifically targeted to meet emerging customer requirements,” said Ron Peeters, Senior Director of Business Development at Vision Solutions. “By aligning our efforts we will enable our customers to more cost effectively set up remote servers for disaster recovery and high availability by greatly improving WAN performance and lowering the cost of communications, which can be significant.”
Based on its PeriSphere architecture, Peribit platforms integrate best-in-class technologies that deliver memory-based compression, disk-based sequence caching, TCP acceleration, bandwidth management, path optimization and network visibility to accelerate application performance over WANs. Compression creates available bandwidth to deliver applications and TCP acceleration speeds application performance by reducing the impact of latency. Peribit platforms are deployed on WAN links that connect data centers and branch offices to accelerate enterprise applications including enterprise resource planning, email, voice over IP and data replication.
Peeters continued, “We understood our customer requirements and looked carefully at the market before aligning with Peribit for this partnership. We chose Peribit because they clearly have the most comprehensive and effective WAN bandwidth acceleration and optimization technology available.”
Benchmark testing completed by both companies and joint customers show an improvement of seven to 20 times in compression and reduction in bandwidth traffic resulting in an increase in throughput capacity of three to four times. At these levels, customers are assured that their high availability and disaster recovery applications are operating up-to-the-minute, providing the confidence of true availability.
“As the provider of WAN optimization solutions to Vision Solutions and its worldwide channel partners, Vision customers can now take advantage of dramatic bandwidth performance improvement to further advance their solutions,” said Brad Mandell, vice president of sales with Peribit. “Our relationship with Vision is highly complementary not only in our technologies but in our existing sales channels, and provides enterprises a best-in-class combination of high availability and WAN application performance optimization solutions.”
