Exinda’s WAN Optimization Suite and Network Control Suite products are architected on a patented 360 Dynamic Policy Engine, which delivers complete Assessment, Optimization and Assurance capabilities in a single integrated architecture. This policy-based architecture was designed from the ground up to leverage rich network intelligence to drive optimization and control based on business SLAs. The impact is that companies using Exinda products are able to guarantee that the right application is delivered to the right user with the right experience. Converged networks, collaboration, inter-cloud computing, BYOD and mobility, among other initiatives, have changed the requirements for network optimization and management. Today’s network solutions must be both intelligent and efficient to handle the complexity of applications and the sophistication of users.Architectural Components
Exinda’s Central Management System provides a single view of your network estate. Rather than individually configure, monitor and analyze each WAN segment, Exinda’s management console provides a single pane-of-glass for monitoring, reporting and problem resolution, which leads to fewer network issues and a more productive IT staff. Additionally, you can use the management console to apply the same configuration across multiple devices. An aggregate view across all your networks enables comparative benchmarking and accelerates the path to an optimized global network.
All Exinda products are available as physical hardware appliances or virtual appliances, and you get equal performance and power no matter which approach makes sense for your organization. Exinda’s innovative application of virtual appliance technology and scalable hardware appliances are designed to scale as you grow. That means you are not faced with forklift upgrades as your network expands. Our pay-as-you-grow approach results in lower total cost of ownership, faster time-to-value and the flexibility to grow at your own pace. Exinda’s virtual appliances are ideal for virtualized IT environments and consolidated branch offices. Our appliances deliver unlimited flexibility and easy resource scaling so you can adjust how much memory, storage and virtual network resources you apply to your Exinda solution on the fly.
Exinda delivers comprehensive reporting within the core architecture. Unlike conventional WAN Optimization vendors that provide reporting as a separate product, Exinda considers reporting to be a fundamental part of assuring user experience across the network. Exinda products have more than 140 ready-to-use reports and a core set of best-practice reports based on our global customers’ experiences. Exinda’s pragmatic and actionable reporting makes it easier for busy network administrators to diagnose and resolve problems quickly. Exinda presents meaningful intelligence about users, locations, times and applications – not endless lists of IP addresses and protocols.
Assurance services represent the user experience center for Exinda products. These services control how bandwidth is allocated across applications, users, times of day and locations based on policy. Assurance services monitor the quality of the end-user experience, alert you when thresholds are breached, and ensure the right applications are being delivered to the right users with the right quality of service.
Optimization services are the performance center for Exinda products. These services extract information and policies about the applications and the network capacity from assessment services and apply the right mix of traffic optimization and application acceleration that are needed to make your applications perform better and make more efficient use of network bandwidth.
Assessment services are a key component of Exinda’s 360 architecture. As the network intelligence center, assessment services identify, analyze and model the optimal treatment of applications based on traffic inspection, SLAs, heuristics and performance scoring. Assessment services allow automated application of acceleration and control based on your business priorities, the nature of applications and the network conditions at any given time.
At the heart of all Exinda products is our patented 360 Dynamic Policy Engine, which allows you to drive optimization and control actions based on real business and network intelligence. The 360 Dynamic Policy Engine is where intelligence and action intersect. The policy engine is integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, making Exinda the only vendor that can drive optimization, control and reporting from user, role, group, location, application, time and service-level agreement (SLA) policies.
