BURLINGTON, Mass.--(Certeon, the application performance company, today announced availability of Certeon’s aCelera wide area network (WAN) optimization platform integrated VMware vSphere® 5 and VMware vCloud APIs. In addition to accelerating virtual machines (VMs) moving between datacenters and the clouds—private, public and hybrid— aCelera platform accelerates a variety of applications and optimizes the network’s performance. The combination of Certeon and VMware software can enable IT organizations and cloud service providers to optimize computing resources and maximize utilization of their IT investments.)--
“If the application or network can't be redesigned, WAN performance optimization can make the difference between useable and useless.”
The integration enables customers to connect VMware vSphere™ and VMware vCloud Director™ data centers and clouds then managed them through a single interface, while getting the benefits of WAN optimization. When moving and replicating data across the WAN, there are reductions in responsiveness that impact user experience and business critical processes. Certeon and VMware’s solutions can help customers optimize their WAN, so companies can realize the benefits of utilizing hybrid cloud environments without compromising performance. The aCelera platform provides significant WAN performance improvements across, and helps reduce the costs associated with WAN infrastructure.
In his recent research note Managing Network Performance of Cloud-Based Applications, Gartner analyst Eric Siegel observed that "Cloud computing is a hot topic, and the performance of the network is a critical factor in user satisfaction," and that "Network performance is a key component of the total performance of cloud-based applications." Mr. Siegel concluded, "If the application or network can't be redesigned, WAN performance optimization can make the difference between useable and useless."
Certeon aCelera features the scale, speed and simplicity enterprise applications need and also includes integrated cloud intelligent features like WAN bridging, on demand security and a profile based configuration management system. The combination of VMware vSphere™ and aCelera enables organizations to deploy a single integrated solution that is managed through a single interface and deployed across data center, private and public cloud.
