Array Networks Expands aCelera WAN Optimization Product Line with New WAN1100 Small Office Appliance

Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announces the immediate availability of its new aCelera WAN1100 WAN optimization controller product. The new WAN1100 is a tabletop hardware appliance designed to bring WAN optimization to small and remote office environments. Featuring an unmatched combination of size, simplicity and price-performance, the WAN1100 is engineered to broaden hub-and-spoke application acceleration deployment while accelerating return on investment.

Many small and remote offices share a similar profile: they are often serviced by smaller Internet connections and are unlikely to be staffed by a team of IT experts. Nonetheless, workers at these locations require applications to function seamlessly in order carry out their job functions and maximize productivity.

With the WAN1100, remote and small offices can benefit from the same application experience gained by workers located at headquarters and major branch office facilities. The compact new appliance ships easily and mounts on virtually any surface. Moreover, any office worker can easily plug in, connect and power on the appliance; from there, configuration can be pushed from a centralized management system or performed remotely by IT. Starting at a list price of less than $2,000 for 10Mbps throughput and 40 concurrent TCP connections, WAN1100 appliances enable ROI that makes WAN optimization economically justifiable for more locations than ever before.

The new aCelera appliance may be used to accelerate a broad range of application traffic, including Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, IBM, Dell, file transfers, backup and replication and others. In independent tests performed by Miercom—transferring a 1MB file over a 1.5Mbps connection using CIFS or HTTP—aCelera delivered 99% performance improvements, transferring files in mere seconds as compared to hours without aCelera. Moreover, in a test of random Microsoft Office file types and sizes, file transfers that normally required 45 minutes to complete, took only 11 minutes with aCelera.

“The new aCelera WAN1100 appliance gives customers another solution to assist in solving application delivery networking challenges,” said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. “Customers were very enthusiastic about the performance of Array’s aCelera product line and requested an entry-level product to allow even broader WAN optimization deployment. The WAN1100 is yet another example of Array’s ability to rapidly respond to customer requirements and market demand.”

In addition to broadening Array’s WAN optimization product portfolio, the launch of the WAN1100 also strengthens Array’s solution focus in areas such as cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS). For providers using Array APV Series application delivery controllers to provide high-availability for cloud services, the new aCelera WAN1100 may be used to provide accelerated performance to select customers for which limited connectivity may have been impacting the end-user experience.

Array Networks aCelera WAN1100 WAN Optimization Controllers are available immediately. For additional information on the WAN1100, aCelera and Array Networks, visit: www.arraynetworks.com.

"Calligo is a cloud service provider with data privacy at the heart of what we do. We are a typical Infrastructure as a Service cloud provider but it's been designed around data privacy," explained Julian Box, CEO and co-founder of Calligo, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Michael Burley, a Senior Business Development Executive in IT Services at NetApp, described how NetApp designed a three-year program of work to migrate 25PB of a major telco's enterprise data to a new STaaS platform, and then secured a long-term contract to manage and operate the platform. This significant program blended the best of NetApp’s solutions and services capabilities to enable this telco’s successful adoption of private cloud storage and launching of virtual storage services to its enterprise market.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
