WAN Optimization

WAN optimization is a collection of techniques for increasing data-transfer efficiencies across your Wide Area Network (WAN). 2nd Node's WAN Optimization solutions improve WAN quality by overcoming the adverse effects of dropped and out-of-order packets (i.e., packet loss). These quality issues are increasingly problematic as organizations move to MPLS, IP VPNs and other shared WAN technologies.
Utilizing Silver Peak, 2nd Node is able to perform Network Optimization at very high data rates. With scalable appliances for the Wide Area Network (WAN) and Local Area Network (LAN) and providing acceleration, duplication, error correction, data caching, and encryption, 2nd Node can overcome latency on even the largest of WAN links.
  • Acceleration: 2nd Node is able to perform Network Acceleration at very high data rates. 2nd Node combines standard Network Acceleration features with its Network Integrity features to address the combined impact of loss and latency. By addressing both of these issues in tandem, 2nd Node offers a robust solution for WAN acceleration.
  • Deduplication: Eliminates the transfer of redundant data across the WAN by sending references to your data instead of the actual data. 
  • Error Correction: 2nd Node is able to address Network Integrity issues in real-time with Adaptive Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Real-time Packet Order Correction (POC) technologies. 
  • Data Caching: 2nd Node uses advanced data caching techniques to boost performance and ensure synchronization. 2nd Node leverages caching technology to enable the consolidation of your enterprise data, coupled with specific protocol acceleration techniques to improve file access and storage across the WAN.
  • Encryption: The latest encryption technology is used to protect data at all times – at rest and in transit across the WAN.

Key Benefits

  • Improve Performance: Applications are no longer subject to the bandwidth and latency issues inherent to WANs.
  • Increase Employee Productivity: Better application response time makes end-users more productive.
  • Reduce Server Hardware Costs: Branch office servers and storage can be eliminated as infrastructure is centralized within the 2nd Node Data Center. You also do not have to pay additional facility and environmental costs to house servers at remote facilities. 
  • Minimize Licensing Costs: Reducing the amount of application servers can minimize licensing costs in some application pricing models.
  • Decrease WAN Expenditures: When information is localized, less traffic traverses the WAN. This maximizes bandwidth utilization, which minimizes WAN costs.
  • Lower IT Support Costs: Server centralization minimizes the need for onsite technical support staff in remote offices, and reduces travel costs to these facilities. 
  • Maximize Security: Enterprise data is best protected when servers are placed in 2nd Node's Data Center with proper security precautions and environmental protections. 
  • Facilitate Compliance: IT staff can better audit servers to ensure that they are properly configured in a centralized environment.
  • Improve Business Continuity: It is easier to enforce server backups and ensure proper data storage and retrieval when branch office infrastructure is centrally controlled and managed.
