Press Release Body: Stampede(r) Technologies, Inc. (www.stampede.com), a leading provider of WAN Optimization and Application Acceleration solutions, today announced its newest in its arsenal of application acceleration solutions. The company is announcing the new Stampede Remote Campus Optimizer. Designed to optimize efficiency for application traffic flow between an application data centers and remote locations, the new Stampede Remote Campus Optimizer, which is software that runs on Linux appliances, will be available to OEM partners in Q4 2008.
Stampede's new Remote Campus Optimizer (RCO) makes WAN access more like LAN access by facilitating easier, more responsive and more efficient remote user application access. The "Stampede Remote Campus Optimizer (the RCO)" accelerates most traffic between a remote branch and a data center by sitting "in-line" as a transparent bridge. The RCO runs on a dedicated appliance with special network hardware that enables it to go into pass-through if taken out of service. The RCO accelerates multiple protocols, including HTTP, Microsoft Exchange (MAPI), CIFS, FTP, POP3, SMTP, and many others. Working in conjunction with the Stampede Acceleration Series (SAAS), the new RCO enhances acceleration by combining protocol-specific optimization techniques along with compression technology, and Stampede's patented Turbostreaming. The RCO makes remote application use 4-10x faster and more efficient, reducing bandwidth usage by 70-90%. By partnering with OEMs who will bring their own hardware to the total solution, the RCO will put an affordable Wan Optimization Solution on the market for small and medium size accounts who previously could not afford Enterprise level WOC products.
"There is no question that central hosting and management of applications and data is more practical for the SMB market in terms of hardware, software and facilities investment and maintenance," said Gordon Dorworth, Stampede Technologies' President and CEO. "The issues to be overcome are efficiency for the user end and the cost of bandwidth. Stampede has earned our reputation in delivering application acceleration solutions for over 14 years, and the new RCO marks a huge breakthrough in remote application efficiency-at an attractive price point - so that any size account can afford the benefits of WAN Optimization"
