Five Ways to Optimize Offsite Data Storage and Business Continuity
The WAN is the "highway" upon which data is sent for remote replication and backup and it is the main conduit upon which centralized files are sent and retrieved by distributed users.
WAN optimization ensures that this highway is operating at its full potential by maximizing available capacity, overcoming distance limitations, and ensuring that packets are delivered in a manner that is fast, consistent, and reliable. In other words, by enhancing available WAN bandwidth and fixing network latency and packet loss issues, WAN optimization is a key enabler for various storage initiatives.
This white paper examines the benefits to running Silver Peak’s WAN optimization in conjunction with data replication and remote backup solutions.
