Existing Wide Area Networks’ (WAN) acceleration technologies usable in cloud servers have not been able to sufficiently raise the effective transfer rate. Although connections in WAN between clouds are moving from 1Gbps lines to 10Gbps lines,
“Let’s consider an organization with multiple branch offices connected to each other via either a T1, MPLS or VPN. In such scenario, some branches host specific services. For example, one branch could be hosting an FTP server, and another one could be hosting an email server.
Once both these steps are complete, the resulting TCP payload is considerably reduced as compared to the original TCP packet. This optimized packet is transmitted on the WAN link to the destination branch office.
Using StoneWAN, users get maximum throughput possible from a WAN link, without increasing capacity of the physical link. With this technology, it is possible to transfer data at high-speeds between cloud to cloud, local to cloud and cloud to local, including data sharing and backups, enabling the creation of
