FatPipe WAN Optimization by FatPipe Networks
Increase speeds up to 75 times using single or multi-line network optimization plus redundancy
FatPipe Networks’ WAN Optimization technology offers the highest performance level of WAN Optimization and optimization available using patented and patent pending technology. With FatPipe WAN Optimization, you can significantly boost your Wide Area Network performance. This is possible through acceleration of your applications, better utilization of your current WAN infrastructure that would ultimately result in saving you thousands of dollars a year on additional hardware, software and bandwidth costs. FatPipe WAN Optimization appreciably increases WAN utilization, providing effective use of WAN bandwidth by caching/compressing that sharply reduces redundant data on a WAN.
FatPipe is the first to market and the only provider of WAN Optimization and optimization technology that can work across multiple WANs. Not only can you optimize your WAN traffic, you can achieve the highest level of WAN redundancy and reliability. Additionally, unlike other WAN optimization/acceleration products that provide WAN caching at the file level, FatPipe WAN caching works at the file as well as the byte level. Smaller granularity results in greater levels of detected redundancies, and more de-duplication and less retransmission, giving you the highest level of WAN optimization available.
With FatPipe WAN Optimization, you can measurably increase productivity levels as it reduces response time for interactive applications, helps speed-up large data transfers between your headquarters, branches and data storage and/or disaster recovery sites, thereby increasing speed of data transfer between sites.
WAN Optimization as-a-Service by Aryaka
Information is the fuel that powers the twenty-first-century economy, and for most businesses, mission-critical information is housed in applications. The problem is that those applications could be anywhere, in-house, in a private cloud, a public cloud or even in a mobile app. If workers can’t efficiently access those applications, the value of the information within erodes. To connect workers with business-critical information, businesses have had two choices: deal with the congestion that plagues the public Internet, or invest in expensive WAN Optimization hardware. There was no middle ground. . .
. . . Until now. By turning WAN Optimization into a service, Aryaka has changed the game, helping businesses of all sizes unlock the true power of information. By moving this complicated technology to the cloud, Aryaka helps businesses avoid expensive hardware purchases and puts WAN Optimization within reach for businesses that didn’t have the budget or know-how for complicated hardware fixes. Now, businesses of all sizes can deploy in minutes, scale up and down as needed, and never again paying for capacity they don’t use.

What is WAN optimization?
Distance, delay, and inefficiencies—these can dramatically slow your access to data and applications over the Internet or a wide area network (WAN). By attacking the causes of slow performance, WAN optimization accelerates applications and data transfer so connected people can be more productive. It increases performance while enhancing IT control and visibility across datacenters and branch offices, in the cloud, and on the go.
