Silver Peak to launch WAN fabric

WANSilver Peak will be launching its wide area network fabric (WAN) ‘Unity’ – that it says unifies the enterprise network with the public cloud – at GITEX 2014.

Unity tracks the location of cloud services and internet ‘weather’ to route traffic.

It keeps cloud SaaS and IaaS traffic on the Unity fabric, which Silver Peak says can give IT the ability to give users consistent performance for cloud applications, whilst monitoring and controlling connectivity to the cloud

“The visibility solution is intended to transform the way Middle Eastern enterprises and service providers monitor their networks,” said Bhaskar Peruri, Regional Sales Manager, Middle East, Silver Peak. “Most enterprises use dozens of cloud-based services, whether IT knows about them or not. The problem is IT staff have no insight into that traffic once it leaves the WAN. They can’t troubleshoot problems or optimise applications the way they would on their own network.

“We are excited about the opportunities that the Middle East and this year’s GITEX Technology Week hold for us. We understand that information security officers face growing pressure to protect terabytes of data on an increasingly unsecured network, manage information safely, especially on the cloud.”

Silver Peak (Hall 1, stand 108) will launch Unity at the upcoming GITEX Technology Week in October 2014.
