Certeon Adds Stratel to Partner Acceleration Program as Strategic Reseller
Certeon, a leading provider of software-based application acceleration solutions, today announced the addition of Stratel to its Partner Acceleration Program as a global reseller. Certeon’s aCelera Virtual Appliance software will significantly reduce Stratel’s customers’ application response times over the Wide Area Network (WAN) and enhance its mission to manage and support reliable networks across a distributed enterprise.

Larger enterprises rely on Stratel for best-in-class solutions for network management, security and biometrics. Stratel’s customer base consists of globally distributed enterprises with a large number of remote office workers and these customers require a solution that ensures application performance across the WAN to the branch office. In addition, Stratel has a commitment to its customers to limit costs, maximize existing IT investments, and minimize IT complexity. When it comes to WAN optimization and application acceleration, Certeon’s aCelera software is the only solution that meets Stratel’s customers’ needs—improving application response times across the WAN by over 95 percent and maintaining flexibility and cost-effectiveness that can only come from a virtual appliance software solution.

As a virtual appliance that is supported on leading virtual machine operating systems and industry standard servers, aCelera eliminates the need for costly single-purpose proprietary hardware appliances—saving many enterprises as much as 60 percent in operations TCO. Certeon enables distributed enterprises to significantly reduce overall capital and operational costs by allowing IT managers to run aCelera acceleration software with any number of applications and leverage existing system, network, storage, and management resources.

“Our commitment to customers is to provide the best solutions the industry has to offer to maintain a secure, reliable and cost-effective communications network,” said Luigi D’Angola, Managing Partner, Stratel. “Certeon’s aCelera delivers stellar technology that greatly improves application response times over the WAN through a virtual appliance and allows greater flexibility and lower TCO than any of its competitors.”

aCelera Virtual Appliance software is the perfect union of virtualization and application acceleration technology and provides businesses with a combination of cost-effective performance, scalability, flexibility, and easy management. aCelera is system-independent and hypervisor-agnostic, supporting high-performance remote application access in Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and VMware ESX and ESXi environments. aCelera can be centrally managed and controlled through its integration with both the Microsoft Virtual System Center and VMware VirtualCenter management systems—enabling IT managers to allocate and manage application performance resources from a central location. In addition, aCelera software can be distributed to remote locations via an enterprise storage area network, further reducing operational and deployment costs.

“The days of single-purpose solutions for WAN Optimization have gone by the wayside in favor of a software approach that allows lower cost and greater flexibility and performance,” said Gareth Taube, Vice President of Marketing, Certeon. “Certeon pioneered this approach to application acceleration and extending our aCelera software to Stratel’s customers will bring enormous performance gains for enterprise-wide applications being delivered over the WAN.”
