Unitus Selects Certeon's Virtualization Appliance in its Quest to Fight Global Poverty
Certeon Announced that Unitus has Selected Certeon's aCelera to Improve Remote File Accessibility Among its Global Users

Certeon announced that Unitus has selected Certeon's aCelera to improve remote file accessibility among its global users. Certeon's aCelera Virtual Appliance for Application Acceleration delivers acceleration as a service through software inside a virtual infrastructure--an ideal solution for enterprises looking to optimize remote access performance over the wide area network (WAN).

Unitus needed to decrease the time it took to access files between its data centers in Seattle, WA and Bangalore, India. Unitus was exchanging files between servers and making those files available to users over the WAN using Microsoft SharePoint 2003 Server. Before choosing Certeon's aCelera software, it considered and tested desktop cache programs and server mirroring platforms. With aCelera, Unitus saw a greater than 88% reduction in file server response time. aCelera software running in a virtualized environment made it easy for Unitus to deploy acceleration to its global locations, without the need to deploy a proprietary appliance. With aCelera, Unitus was able to improve end user response times and create identical working environments across global offices and teams, improving overall productivity.

"We were looking to provide equal levels of application access and speed to users regardless of their location," said Holly R. Wielkoszewski, IT Coordinator, Unitus. "Certeon's support for both application acceleration over the WAN and VMware virtualization will enable us to provide the same level of service to our global users and expand our overseas locations."

aCelera Virtual Appliance software is a union of virtualization and application acceleration technology and provides enterprises with the combination of performance, scalability, flexibility and easy management. It is only when you include acceleration in the virtual infrastructure that you can gain the full ROI from virtualization. Certeon is a VMware Select Technology Alliance Partner and its aCelera Virtual Appliance is the first and only application acceleration appliance to have achieved certification for VMware ESX and ESXi.

"aCelera enables global enterprises such as Unitus to deliver application acceleration to all of its distributed users without the need to add proprietary hardware appliances," states Peter Dougherty, president and CEO, Certeon. "aCelera allows businesses to take full advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and management benefits of virtualization while maximizing response time performance so remote teams can be more productive."
