The wide-area network optimization controller market is maturing rapidly, but remains dynamic, with a high level of innovation from vendors. Organizations looking to acquire WOC capabilities should identify their specific needs and conduct real-life trials before committing to any purchase.
Noted author Jim Metzler reports on the emergence of vWOCs, or virtual WAN Optimization Controllers. From the data center to the branch, virtualization is enabling a revolution in how WAN optimization is acquired and deployed. Whether combined with traditional physical appliances or fully virtualized, the new choices make universal network optimization a reality.
Limited bandwidth, long distances and poor network quality prohibit cost reductions for today's critical IT initiatives. Your IT organization needs WAN optimization that can be deployed anywhere, on any platform, and for the lowest cost. See how the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers can help.
This paper describes how organizations can use advanced, yet affordable WAN link optimization solutions to leverage the benefits of multiple sites, while maintaining high-performance and reliability for applications delivered across all sites. You will discover how to use WAN link controllers to manage, automatically load balance and failover of multiple WAN and ISP links to ensure site–to-site connectivity, and deliver applications reliably.
By redirecting traffic away from ISP outages and WAN link bottlenecks, Ecessa, with its PowerLink and ShieldLink family of affordable WAN Optimization Controllers help avoid critical WAN infrastructure problems. Ecessa optimizes WAN infrastructure as defined by 24/7 availability, high-performance, flexible scalability, and secure operations - while streamlining IT costs. PowerLink and ShieldLink simplify the management of network links, and optimize user access to datacenters and remote sites.
