New Citrix WANScaler 8000 Series Boosts Acceleration of Application Delivery to Branch Offices
Citrix WANScaler Adds Dynamic Multi-Level Compression, an Industry-First in Optimizing the Delivery of Applications over Wide Area Networks
Citrix Systems today announced via her distributor Qdis technologies (0492-593090) the immediate availability of its Citrix® WANScaler™ 8000 Series of wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions. The new WANScaler release underscores Citrix’s leadership as the most comprehensive provider of solutions that deliver any application, to any user, in any location with the best performance, security and cost savings. With industry analysts expecting the WAN optimization market to double to more than $1.2 billion by 2009(1), and an estimated 55 percent of all employees worldwide accessing their applications from branch offices, WAN optimization solutions are rapidly becoming a critical infrastructure requirement for enterprises around the world.
With the WANScaler 8000, Citrix introduces new breakthrough dynamic multi-level compression technology with extended disk-based history that can improve application response times for branch office employees by an average of 5x to 30x, and up to 300x at peak compression efficiency.(2) Incorporating a new algorithm that improves compression ratios by more than 10 times(3), Citrix’s multi-level compression enables WANScaler 8000 to automatically select the optimal compression scheme for specific applications, data flows and network bandwidths, resulting in maximum performance and efficiency. By dynamically adjusting between disk, level-two cache and memory-based compression, WANScaler 8000 applies highly efficient, high performance compression supporting hundreds of branch offices, thousands of connections and WAN throughput levels greater than 500 Mbps. With this level of performance, an inexpensive T-1 WAN link (1.544 Mbps), commonly used for branch office connectivity, can now support the equivalent of a full Gigabit of application traffic throughput while improving the performance of applications to end users.
