Silver Peak awarded multiple patents for accelerating data movement over distance

Patented software cost-effectively moves Big Data between data centres, branches and the cloud

SYDNEY, June 28, 2012—Silver Peak Systems today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has awarded the company four new patents for its software that accelerates data movement over distance. The patented software enables businesses to simplify and lower the costs for critical IT initiatives such as disaster recovery, data centre virtualisation and cloud computing. The new patents awarded include:

• US Patent #8,171,238: “Identification of Data Stored in Memory”

• US Patent #8,095,774: “Pre-Fetching Data into a Memory”

• US Patent #7,948,921: “Automatic Network Optimization”

• US Patent #7,945,736: “Dynamic Load Management of Network Memory”

Enterprises must constantly move data from data centres to offsite locations for critical IT initiatives such as disaster recovery and for providing distributed users with fast access to data. However, long distances and low-quality, shared or public networks limit the performance of data transfers. Silver Peak’s patented Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) software can be deployed quickly and easily on any server to move data up to 90-times faster over existing infrastructures.

“These patents reinforce our ongoing commitment to innovation and delivering the highest-performance, most-adaptive software solutions for speeding data movement over distance,” said David Hughes, founder and CTO of Silver Peak. “The requirements for wide area network (WAN) optimisation are evolving with increased adoption of virtualisation, dynamic workloads, and shrinking physical real-estate in today’s data centres. This prompts some customers to seek software alternatives to legacy custom hardware-based WAN optimization appliances. Silver Peak VXOA software can be downloaded and deployed quickly anywhere in the world to move critical data where it needs to be.”
