Silver Peak hits 1,000 customer milestone

Silver Peak now serves over 1,000 customers around the world with its Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution. Today’s milestone encompasses both enterprise customers served by the Silver Peak channel partner ecosystem and end-customers served by Silver Peak service provider partners offering turnkey managed SD-WAN services powered by EdgeConnect.

Production customer deployments span all market segments and geographies from distributed enterprises with tens to hundreds of sites to businesses deploying tiered managed SD-WAN services offered by Silver Peak service provider partners. New EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution customers include: Andersen Tax LLC, Gerresheimer AG, NSW Department of Planning and Environment, Integra Life Sciences, J-U-B Engineers Inc., Republic Bank and Trust, SiteOne Landscape Supply, Southern Cross Austereo, Tennessee Oncology, Universal Health Services and Westrac.

Since introducing EdgeConnect three years ago, Silver Peak innovation has been shaped by working hand-in-hand with customers to shift from a device-centric WAN model where the business is forced to conform to the constraints of the network toward a business-first model where the network empowers the business.

“Connecting branch employees securely and directly to the applications that underpin our banking products and services is critical to achieving our success criteria and reinforcing our pledge to delight customers,” said Sean O’Mahoney senior vice president and managing director of technology services at Republic Bank. “The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution delivered the best performance, most functionality and ease-of-management of the SD-WAN vendors we evaluated. With EdgeConnect, we now have the flexibility to make full use of both our MPLS and broadband connections, while assuring robust security and application acceleration with integrated WAN optimisation. This powerful combination is enabling us to evolve beyond the cost and complexity of our conventional ISRs with a centrally managed business-driven WAN edge.”
