Maximize WAN performance with a smart software solution.
Businesses aiming to significantly enhance WAN application performance and improve WAN acceleration using powerful Dell hardware can benefit from the Dell™ SonicWALL™ WAN Acceleration software (WXA) 6000. Similar to traditional Dell SonicWALL WXA hardware solutions, the WXA 6000 reduces application latency, conserves network bandwidth and improves the end user experience—only it’s delivered as software for use on a dedicated Dell hardware platform. Unlike standalone acceleration products, the Dell SonicWALL WXA 6000 seamlessly integrates with Dell SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series Next-Generation Firewall solutions to offer the unique combined benefit of both prioritizing and minimizing application traffic between sites, resulting in optimal network performance.
WXA 6000 software features
The Dell SonicWALL WXA 6000 software improves application performance through innovative WAN acceleration and optimization technology. Plus, it provides added control over the platform and the WAN acceleration application itself.
Designed for up to 2,000 users, the WXA 6000 software is an ISO image of the WXA software and can easily be deployed on dedicated Dell hardware.
Businesses retain the ability to access, make changes or install other applications to their system. System administrators retain full control of the program and the installed software.
The WXA 6000 remembers data that has been transferred previously and, through data de-duplication, replaces repeated byte sequences with an identifier to reduce application latency and conserve bandwidth.
By improving the efficiency and overall utilization of existing WAN bandwidth, the WXA 6000 helps businesses avoid the unnecessary expense of increasing their WAN bandwidth capacity.
The WXA 6000 compresses data sent across the WAN, increasing network performance while reducing latency.
Dell SonicWALL WXA solutions reduce application latency and conserve bandwidth with a variety of optimization techniques, including data caching, file de-duplication, traffic prioritization and more.
When deployed with a Dell SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall, an additional layer of security is provided through the use of Dell SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® technology, which scans all traffic and data for threats before sending it to the WAN acceleration appliance.
Byte caching and file caching
The WXA 6000 decreases traffic volume by reducing the amount of redundant data moving between the central office and remote locations.
Users accessing resources over the WAN can take advantage of LAN-like application performance that decreases the latency and chattiness presented by inefficient protocols or application communication.
Web (HTTP) caching
For Internet-bound web traffic distributed over HTTP, content is cached locally on the WXA appliance, decreasing the amount of bandwidth required for web traffic and resulting in improved browser response times.
Administrative tools and reports deliver real-time insight into the performance gains obtained by introducing WAN acceleration appliances into the network.
Windows File Sharing (WFS) acceleration
Dell SonicWALL WXA solutions improve response times while decreasing the amount of data transferred when downloading or accessing files from a shared drive.
When deployed in conjunction with Dell SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control Service, WXA solutions offer the unique combined benefit of both prioritizing application traffic and minimizing traffic between sites, resulting in optimal network performance.
