WAN Series Optimization Controllers for Accelerating Remote Application Delivery

WAN Series Optimization Controllers for Accelerating Remote Application Delivery

Array WAN Series WAN optimization controllers speed data transfers and reduce application response times over wide area networks by optimizing and reducing traffic transmitted between remote offices, remote users, data centers and clouds.
Leveraging stream-based differencing, application blueprints, single instance store, traffic prioritization and network, application and TCP optimizations, WAN Series solutions mitigate the effects of limited bandwidth, high latency, packet loss and network congestion to improve application response times by more than 50x and reduce bandwidth utilization by up to 95%.
Where scalability and performance across the WAN is a critical factor, WAN Series physical and virtual appliances or Windows software solutions may be deployed to cost-effectively deliver LAN-like performance from anywhere to anywhere.

Available as software for Windows environments, WAN Series CMS provides IT administrators with an easy-to-use solution for centralizing provisioning, management and policy configuration for any WAN Series physical appliance, virtual appliance or software product.


Application & Replication Acceleration

WAN Series physical and virtual appliances and software are deployed symmetrically at both ends of wide area connections, such as headquarters to branch, data center to data center, cloud to customer or remote and mobile access.
Array WAN optimization controllers eliminate traditional network constraints and geographical barriers – accelerating replication times and providing any user, anywhere with a LAN-like experience when working with business-critical applications and data.
Each WAN Series WAN optimization solution shares an all-inclusive feature set and is available with right-sized concurrent connection packs for simple, cost-effective ordering.

WAN Optimization Features

  • Stream Based Differencing

    Stream Based Differencing

    It facilitates the compression, organization and differentiation of all data types as part of an overall data reduction and optimisation process.

  • Single Stance Store

    Single Stance Store

    It provides a scalable resource to implement data differentiation and prevents multiple copies of the same data from being stored and maintained and enables predictive preloading while maintaining high levels of performance.

  • Proxy and Connection Handling

    Proxy and Connection Handling

    Proxy and connection handling technologies with protocol transparency for CIFS, MAPI, HTTP, HTTPS, RPC-to-NFS SMB (v2 and v3) and others.

  • Compression & Caching

    Compression & Caching

    WAN Series provides an ideal balance between data reduction and maximized throughput by performing compression on the first pass of data and then leveraging application acceleration blueprints to deliver content aware de- duplication

  • Content-Aware De-Duplication

    Content-Aware De-Duplication

    WAN Series segments and builds histories and distinguishes the protocol used to transfer the content. By stripping off both TCP/IP and protocol encapsulation, WAN Series creates a clean history based on pure content.

  • Application Blueprints

    Application Blueprints

    WAN Series application blueprints optimize protocols so they operate efficiently across wide area networks.

  • Traffic Shaping and Secure WAN

    Traffic Shaping and Secure WAN

    Allows IT to prioritize and secure traffic on the network. By enabling encryption, accelerated traffic can be transmitted over SSL connections.

  •  WAN Series Configuration Management System (CMS)

    WAN Series Configuration Management System (CMS)

    It enables secure global configuration, deployment management, updating, monitoring and troubleshooting of up to 3,000 physical and virtual WAN series appliances and clients.

WAN Deployment Options

  • Hardware


    WAN Optimization is symmetrically deployed at each location that requires traffic to be accelerated. The appliance can be deployed in one of the following ways:

  • In-Line


    In-Line deployment places the appliance directly on the network typically between a network switch and the edge router.

  • Out-of-Line


    Out-of-line deployment places the appliance off the main data path, usually off a switch or router.
