CLAN: A unique approach to WAN Optimization
Business Applications, Hardware Devices, Application Usability,
Replify was different from the start – we saw this as an application usability problem, not just about bits on a wire. We didn’t see why the problem needed expensive custom hardware devices when virtualization and cost-effective commodity hardware could offer so much more flexibility. We came from a mixture of networking and enterprise applications backgrounds and we understood the working patterns of modern businesses and the need to provide application acceleration for roaming workers, not just those in sites. We foresaw the emergence of cloud, wherein the whole idea of trying to place tin-box accelerators in front of your business applications would be totally infeasible. And we saw even further, to a dissolving of the notion of sites and fixed places of work, where the idea of a shared accelerator device (be it physical or virtual) breaks down.
We’re currently porting this capability to other platforms so that the full range of devices which feature in today’s enterprise can participate in this powerful new model.
