Replify solves a problem that is simple to describe but very hard to live with: users experiencing poor application response times, delays when downloading or uploading, or slow viewing of web pages. The impact is more than just user frustration; it’s lost productivity and a breakdown in critical business processes which rely on users exchanging the latest information, working from current versions of documents, meeting records compliance requirements and avoiding creating stale local copies of key documents.

The problem arises when a combination of limited network bandwidth and network latency (the round trip time) reduce the flow of data dramatically and things that work for users on a local LAN become unusable for those working remotely. With Cloud Computing – everyone becomes a remote user and the problem has to be dealt with if these financially compelling propositions are going to be successfully adopted.

The established solution to this problem is “Application Acceleration” also known as WAN Optimization and WAN Acceleration. Replify think beyond that in terms of “Remote Application Usability” because the ultimate answer isn’t just to make the network appear faster, it’s to make the user’s experience totally independent of the network altogether.

We approach this in two independently applicable ways:

A software-only Application Acceleration product which delivers the performance of a specialized device in the form of a virtual appliance which can run on any of the popular virtualized server platforms. This can be deployed at site and/or individual PC level to provide the most flexible and cost-effective solution in the market today.

A local data store that persist when the network connection is lost. Users have the best possible experience accessing, modifying, creating whatever content or documents their business requires from their own PC, and behind the scenes our Application Acceleration product uses miniscule amounts of bandwidth, when network connectivity is present, to synchronize everything with the central repository, be that SharePoint, a fileshare or an eDRMS.

What is WAN Optimization? | Replify WAN Optimization

Just as the consolidation above was gathering pace, the industry realised that further efficiency and flexibility could be gained by pushing applications and the platforms on which they ran, into shared public data centers where you paid less, and paid only for what you used.


Replify Syncstor | Replify WAN Optimization

After initially selecting content to synchronize, the user can read, edit and create freely, knowing that only a few moments of network connectivity now and then will be sufficient for any changes and additions to be synchronized with the source folders, and to receive the updates and additions of colleagues.


Replify Accelerator | Replify WAN Optimization

Replify Accelerator was the first pure software WAN acceleration product running on commodity computing platforms and today is the only product to match or exceed the performance of specialised hardware devices. Replify Enterprise Manager The Replify Enterprise Manager provides centralized configuration and control of your Replify deployment, with detailed reporting on all of your Clients and Virtual Appliances.


XDR™ | Replify WAN Optimization

The Replify Accelerator Cross-Protocol Data Reduction XDR technology is a bi-directional network caching software module which allows both ends of the WAN to ‘learn’ the data payload as it flows between the client and the accelerated servers.


CLAN: A unique approach to WAN Optimization

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. 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.
