WAN Optimization
WAN optimization is a collection of techniques for increasing data-transfer efficiencies across wide-area networks. WAN Optimization solutions makes business runs faster and more efficiently, delivering consistent service levels and cutting the costs of a Company’s   IT infrastructure.
   
Maximize Your WAN Performance
With network traffic growing exponentially, application performance and cost of internet traffic are two of the biggest IT challenges that organizations face. Until now, network managers and administrators lacked a comprehensive solution for monitoring and securing network resources and bandwidth while meeting user expectations for fast and secure application response.
   
Intelligent Bandwidth Management
WAN optimization reduces bandwidth usage between data centers and clients devices by applying advanced compression algorithm, data caching and other techniques to reduce the transmission of data. This results in more effective use of bandwidth, better application performance and reduces the high costs of WAN links between data centers.
   
Unmatched Performance
Fortinet combines WAN optimization and Multi-threat protection in the FortiGate consolidated security appliances. This reduces the complexity and maintenance overhead faced by many IT organization. FortiGate appliances support WAN optimization and web caching to improve application performance and security of traffic passing between locations on your wide area network (WAN) or from the Internet to your web servers.
   
Seamless Integration
You can also use the FortiGate unit as an explicit web proxy and caching server to improve the performance of your web servers. Fortinet Endpoint solution such as FortiClient and FortiClient Premium supports WAN optimization and fully integrates with the FortiGate consolidated security appliances.
   
WAN Optimization can make you Realize dramatic performance improvements across the broad range of applications enterprises care about most.
  • Accelerate application performance, typically by 5-50 times and, in some cases, by up to 100 times. Get more out of the applications your business relies on every day, including file sharing, email, backup, SSL, document management systems, IT tools, SharePoint, SAP, and ERP and CRM solutions.
  • Ensure fast, reliable access to data and applications for employees around the globe. Achieve LAN-like performance for mobile employees, no matter where they are. Drive faster performance to primary and secondary data centers for DR processes.
  • Meet the ongoing challenges of enterprise application performance. Enhance visibility into all key applications that cross the WAN. Quickly identify and resolve problems, eliminate pain points, validate that problems were resolved successfully, create global controls, and optimize applications for future business needs.
  • Address application- and TCP-level protocol chattiness to eliminate inefficient behavior and drastically reduce redundant roundtrips.

    Optimize WAN Bandwidth & Avoid Costly Upgrades
    Reduce network traffic, relieve network congestion, and lower costs.
  • Cut bandwidth utilization, typically by 60-95 percent, using data deduplication across all TCP-based applications. Data is analyzed at the byte level, ensuring that the maximum amount of redundant data is eliminated before it crosses the network.
  • Free up bandwidth for other applications, like VoIP or Citrix, so they can perform better.
  • Minimize the need for expensive WAN upgrades — in an office served by a T1 (1.5 Mbps), you can deliver bandwidth equivalent of up to between 3-30 Mbps just by adding Steelhead appliances to your WAN link

    Streamline IT Operations & Infrastructure
    Optimize your existing environment, reduce IT overhead, and align IT investments with the business.
  • Use the infrastructure you already have more efficiently, and cut the use of bandwidth, routers, and switches.
  • Deploy in a matter of minutes by following a virtually plug-and-play process
  • Configure, update, and monitor performance through a single web-based interface
  • Easily scale to hundreds or thousands of branch offices and mobile workers.
  • Integrate with Cisco and other networks, alongside VoIP, video conferencing, and QoS.
  • Enhance visibility into your infrastructure and analyze how IT resources are being used.
  • Use this knowledge to accelerate key applications, fine-tune systems, and allocate resources to best meet enterprise needs.

    Visibility and analytics go well beyond simple reporting that confirms whether the infrastructure is up and running. True optimization-oriented visibility breaks down data into a deeper understanding of how applications are performing, analytics that set alerts when anomalous performance is detected, and details on which sites can benefit most from further optimization. This type of visibility can impact many different initiatives, including:
  • Implementing and managing service level agreements (SLAs)
  • Accelerating troubleshooting and mean time to respond (MTTR) to incidents
  • Determining the impact of application acceleration and WAN optimization
  • Analyzing future IT investments in relation to business priorities

  • Consolidate IT Infrastructure Without Sacrificing Performance Lower costs, improve security, and ease regulatory compliance.

  • Consolidate multiple global and regional data centers — no need to constantly build, maintain, monitor, patch, upgrade, and mirror numerous data centers to achieve acceptable application performance. Improve data consistency and performance. Roll out new applications and upgrades quickly and efficiently. Achieve and prove compliance more easily.
  • Consolidate file servers, email servers, SAN and NAS devices, and remote tape backup libraries by addressing bandwidth, TCP behavior, and latency. Eliminate underutilized, hard-to-manage servers in remote locations. Reduce capital expenditures and improve maintenance cycles.
  • Consolidate at the edge while still delivering essential local services, like print, DNS, and DHCP, to all your branch offices. Use the serverless branch office model to simplify management, lower costs, use resources more efficiently, and protect data more effectively.
  • Consolidate backup data into the data center, where it’s more accessible and secure. Lower backup and service costs, simplify off-site media management and storage, reduce time spent on manual backup processes, and speed data recovery. Ensure business continuity if data is lost from the primary location.
