Hyper-V goes multi-gigabit over the WAN

Silver Peak video demonstrates industry's first and only multi-gigabit-per-second WAN acceleration solution for Windows Server Hyper-V environments

The performance of hypervisors has reached a new level of intense competition, according to Silver Peak Systems, a leader in accelerating data over distance.

The company has released a video - - demonstrating the industry’s first and only multi-gigabit-per-second (Gbps) WAN acceleration solution for Windows Server Hyper-V environments. Silver Peak’s virtual offering for Windows Server Hyper-V now extends from small remote offices to large data centres, giving Microsoft Corp.’s hypervisor customers a highly flexible and cost-effective solution for maximising the performance of application and storage traffic over a wide area network (WAN).

Silver Peak continues to be the only WAN optimisation vendor to support gigabit/multi-gigabit virtual WAN acceleration, on any standard hypervisor. This represents a significant performance milestone for virtualisation, not just for Silver Peak, which has done gigabit/multi-gigabit virtual performance for quite a while, but for Microsoft with the “innovation delivered in Windows Server 2012.” We are now seeing a levelling of the playing field with hypervisor performance, where VMware no longer has a performance stranglehold at the high-end of the market.

Brian Hillger, director of server and tools marketing for Microsoft, said, “Silver Peak’s multi-gigabit WAN acceleration on Windows Server Hyper-V represents impressive virtual performance based on the innovation delivered in Windows Server 2012.”

Silver Peak software accelerates data movement between data centres, branch offices and the cloud. The company’s optimisation solution solves network quality, capacity and distance challenges to provide fast and reliable access to information anywhere in the world. Leveraging its leadership in data center class wide area network (WAN) optimisation, Silver Peak is a key enabler for strategic IT projects like virtualisation, big data and disaster recovery.
