MACH5 with Asymmetrical Caching technology extends well beyond other WAN optimizers, which focus on symmetrical data caching and acceleration. You can use MACH5’s specialized WAN optimization features for data, video, cloud and web applications, in IPv4, IPv6 or mixed environments. Combining its asymmetrical caching capability with the patent-pending CachePulse™ cloud-enabled intelligence services, the MACH5 is uniquely formulated to deliver outstanding results for WAN acceleration and user experience in today’s cloud and web 2.0 environment.
The Ipanema Autonomic Networking System (ANS) uses both software and hardware components. The fully featured hardware components are called ip|engines. These devices are installed within the customer VPN at edge locations, typically between a CPE router and the LAN. Requiring no specific local configuration except an IP address, an ip|engine is a self-managed and cooperative device that operates under the control of the ANS central management software, called SALSA. Each ip|engine acts as a local point of control within ANS. ip|engines work collectively in real-time to discover the applications and measure the network's performance and usage ip|engine. As part of ANS, the ip|engines cooperate and tune themselves automatically to the dynamic nature of the application traffic, globally enforcing the Application SLAs. They take into account meshed flows, different types of congestion, application competition for resources and so on. The ip|engines adapt to longer term changes within the business, such as a change in the distribution of users across sites, a newly deployed application or a new site, as well as the evolution of infrastructure and services into the cloud.
