Silver Peak’s VX-series (we tested the VM version rather than the NX-series appliance) kicked most of the market to the curb when it came to performance improvements. However, Silver Peak’s early focus on data center-to-data center replication cost them points in our testing as we found a less mature product for branch office environments. Traffic management tools, SSL, Citrix and CIFS/SMB support all lagged the market, and the management software is in the middle of a major transition. For pure performance improvement, Silver Peak is amazingly cost-effective and does a great job. For large branch office deployments, there’s still some engineering left to go into the product.
