Connect Remote Offices at Local Speeds


Most file-sharing technologies were designed for use in a single location, over a wired local area network (LAN). They run much slower over wide area networks (WANs), such as the Internet.


WANJet is a powerful, appliance-based solution that delivers fast, steady, predictable performance for all users on a WAN. WANJet overcomes the limitations of wide area networks, helping with file transfers and data replication between data centers and branch offices. By installing a WANJet at each end of a connection, file transfers take place at nearly the speed of a wired local area network. Application performance is also comparable to what users would experience on a hard-wired LAN.


A More Effective, Less Expensive Alternative to Buying More Bandwidth


With more and more data being transmitted over congested corporate WANs, IT enterprises face degraded network performance and data instability, which can adversely affect business-process Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Some organizations implement costly additional bandwidth, but that doesn't necessarily solve performance and stability issues, due to inherent protocol limitations (which can be particularly problematic on high-latency, intercontinental links).


WAN optimization technology can help improve throughput and mitigate the latency of existing networks through advanced compression, data reduction, and transport protocol optimization. Often, the cost of deploying WAN optimization appliances is less expensive than the cost of increasing bandwidth.


Performance, Security, and Manageability


WANJet is a market-leading optimization solution that dramatically accelerates all data traffic types over the WAN, effectively managing available bandwidth and freeing up spare bandwidth for other application operations. It also provides SSL encryption and decryption between WANJet symmetric devices, to ensure that data transmitted over the WAN is fully secure. WANJet operates on the unique TMOS architecture, bringing new levels of performance and scale to your application delivery network.


Flexible, Scalable, and Easy to Deploy and Manage


WANJet is cost-effective and easy to deploy, and it increases Quality of Service (QoS). It also supports clustering and high-availability features that offer high-performance connection scale out and device failover and pass-through by wire features. The WANJet appliance is offered in several platform and feature configurations, with optimization features designed for data-center-to-data-center data replication optimization and acceleration.


Tested, seamless integration with EMC SRDF


Many organization that have sophisticated replication requirements use EMC's Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF®) solution, to help protect critical data and ensure continuity of operations. Our WANJet 500 appliance is part of the EMC Select program, which means that EMC has tested and validated WANJet with SRDF software. EMC chose the WANJet 500 appliance as part of the program to help its customers get the most out of their EMC investments and minimize recurring bandwidth expenses.


Customers deploying WANJet with SRDF can:


  • Dramatically accelerate data replication traffic while using less bandwidth resources
  • Prioritize critical traffic over non-critical traffic and manage bandwidth utilization
  • Mitigate the effects of latency and packet loss
  • Meet aggressive Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO)
