Getting the most from your WAN

WAN optimisation minimises bandwidth use between data centres, which results in better application performance and improved backup and recovery times. In addition, it dramatically reduces the costs of linking data centres.

Signature Consultancy has partnered with F5 Networks, a global leader in Application Delivery Networking, ensuring the secure, reliable and fast delivery of network applications.

WAN Optimisation: getting the most from your WAN

F5 WAN optimisation technology can significantly improve data replication performance, including Microsoft Exchange mailbox replication, and database synchronisation between data centres.

Signature Consultancy, together with F5, can deliver predictable, fast, LAN-like performance over the WAN, accelerating applications, file transfer, storage replication and backup, VDI, as well as virtual machine migrations.

Business benefits include:
  • Improved performance: F5 technology accelerates data sent over the WAN with symmetric adaptive compression and data deduplication.
  • Increased efficiency: mitigate the effects of latency with TCP Express and protocol optimisations that maximise bandwidth utilisation.
  • Cost savings: by expanding WAN capacity and off-loading CPU-intensive processes from servers, you save on hardware and bandwidth.
  • Stronger security: SSL or IPsec encryption of data over the WAN ensures the secure and fast transfer of business-critical information.
  • Smooth implementation: F5 solutions have been thoroughly tested to ensure interoperability and improved performance.
Why choose Signature Consultancy?

You can choose from a range of devices to meet your specific performance and capacity needs. F5’s WAN optimisation is also available in a Virtual Edition for added flexibility in virtual environments.

Together with Signature Consultancy, F5's unified application and data technology redefines the management of application, server, storage and network resources, streamlining application delivery and reducing costs.

Lenovo takes over IBM System X

Lenovo has recently acquired IBM's x86 server business so that now IBM System X adds to the Lenovo product. The integration of IBM's x86 server business will extend Lenovo’s capabilities in enterprise hardware and services, and position it as a top player in the server market. Their priorities are to deliver a seamless transition for customers and partners while they accelerate the server business, aiming to be the No.1 Server Supplier by 2017.

Lenovo is acquiring the complete x86 server business, including:

    • Products, sales force, manufacturing, research and development
    • Storage agreement assures continuity of solutions that include IBM Storwize
    • Existing sales, distribution and maintenance contracts will transfer seamlessly
    • Global warranty service and support offerings will remain intact after closing

For existing IBM System X users, there will be little change for the foreseeable future.  Lenovo will drive product innovation, while IBM will continue to provide maintenance for customers on Lenovo's behalf for an extended period, to ensure a seamless transition with no change in maintenance support for enterprise customers.

Lenovo’s proven strengths in scalability, operational efficiency, innovation and a broad channel presence, combined with IBM innovation, make this transition very promising. Lenovo will extend its PC and mobile leadership into the enterprise data centre with System X.

The following former IBM products now come under the Lenovo banner:

    • System X racks and towers
    • x86 Blade Center
    • x86 Flex System
    • Blade servers and integrated systems, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors
    • Associated software and hardware support

IBM will retain System z mainframes, Power Systems, Storage, Power-based Flex servers, PureApplication and PureData Systems.

The System X brand, enhanced by IBM's quality and service, was very successful and highly regarded.  With the product lines remaining the same for now, combined with Lenovo’s commitment to product development, global reach and operational excellence, the future looks bright.
