WXA 5000 Virtual Appliance Features
The WXA 5000 virtual appliance improves application performance
through innovative WAN acceleration and optimisation technology, while reducing capital costs through virtualisation.
A pre-configured virtual machine has no professional service fees or hidden costs. By running multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer, businesses can consolidate resources and reduce expenses.
Easy migration and management.
Deployment costs are minimised since administrators can simple move a snapshot of a virtual environment to a new physical server infrastructure. Ongoing support is also simplified. Each virtual appliance is designed for up to 400+ users.
The WXA 5000 remembers data that has been transferred previously,
and through data de-duplication, replaces repeated byte sequences with
an identifier to reduce application latency and conserve bandwidth.
A hardened OS prohibits users from tampering with the underlying integrity of the virtual appliances. The performance optimised architecture activates only necessary processes.
Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
By improving the efficiency and overall utilization of existing WAN
bandwidth, the WXA 5000 helps businesses avoid incurring higher monthly
expenses to increase WAN bandwidth capacity.
The WXA 5000 increases network performance while reducing latency by compressing data sent across the WAN.
SonicWALL WXA solutions reduce application latency and conserve
bandwidth with a variety of optimisation techniques, including data
caching, file de-duplication, traffic prioritisation and more.
When deployed with a SonicWALL NGFW Firewall, an additional layer of
security is provided through the use of SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep
Packet Inspection technology, which scans all traffic and data for
threats before sending it to the WAN acceleration appliance.
Byte caching and file caching.
Reducing bandwidth consumption by orders of magnitude, byte caching
and file caching extend the life of existing WAN links and greatly
enhance the user experience.
Users accessing resources over the WAN can take advantage of
LAN-like application performance that decreases the latency and
chattiness presented by inefficient protocols or application
Windows File Sharing (WFS) acceleration.
SonicWALL WXA solutions help improve response times while decreasing
the amount of data transferred when downloading or accessing files from
a shared drive.
Administrative tools and reports deliver real-time insight into the
performance gains obtained by introducing WAN acceleration appliances
into the network.
When deployed in conjunction with SonicWALL Application Intelligence
and Control Service, WXA solutions offer the unique combined benefit of
both prioritising application traffic and minimising traffic between
sites, resulting in optimal network performance
