Silver Peak today unveiled Unity, a groundbreaking intelligent wide area network (WAN) fabric that unifies the enterprise network with the public cloud. Unlike traditional WAN optimization solutions, Unity correlates information about cloud services and Internet weather to intelligently route traffic over a secure, optimal path. By keeping SaaS and IaaS traffic on the Unity fabric, IT gains an ability it s never had: the ability to monitor and control connectivity to the cloud while ensuring consistent SaaS performance.
Most enterprises use dozens of SaaS services, whether IT knows about them or not, said
Silver Peak Unity represents an entirely new approach to wide area networking, which steps beyond WAN optimization, Hughes continued. We're giving the enterprise a complete map of the cloud-driven network and applying new routing and intelligence to help enterprise IT see, control and optimize connectivity to every SaaS application.
Silver Peak software installed in data centers, branch offices and cloud interconnection hubs generates the Unity fabric, a network overlay that controls and accelerates connectivity to any combination of enterprise services, IaaS resources and SaaS applications. Each Silver Peak instance on the Unity fabric communicates with Silver Peak s new Cloud Intelligence service, which aggregates constantly changing information about cloud providers and Internet weather. Unity uses this information, along with calculations from each software instance, to dynamically route traffic to the cloud over the optimal path. Orchestration is handled by Silver Peak s Global Management System (GMS), which provides IT managers with complete visibility and control over the deployment and use of cloud services.
The rate at which our employees use cloud services has spread like wildfire, said
