Currently we are going through a bit of a cold spell in the UK; heavy snowfalls resulting in travel chaos. This seems to be an annual occurrence – yet the chaos never goes away.
During this time businesses are impacted severely as many employees can’t get to work (or seemingly can’t get to work), and end up trying to work from home. While many of these businesses have IT infrastructure in place for users to send and receive email or connect briefly to business applications, these are generally not set up for sustained home access by large numbers of users. Users need better, consistent access in order to perform their day-to-day work.
WAN optimization plays a big part solving these issues. Home internet access is often over poor or heavily contended networks. Users become frustrated accessing business applications across these links, unless the links are optimized. By running WAN optimization, users can obtain LAN-like performance across such limited networks. Replify Accelerator’s software-only approach to WAN optimization makes it extremely easy to deploy to home users. Even if those users are on older PCs our small footprint and resource demands will deliver benefits with no discernible impact to PC performance. Our rental licensing model makes it extremely cost-effective to use WAN Optimization only when its most needed, such as during a bad weather spell.
Replify’s companion product Syncstor also works well for home access to business applications. Syncstor removes the need for a constant network connection. If allows users to continue to access content they need in their jobs – it allows them to update information and add new information, regardless of the quality or existence of an underlying network connection. It synchronizes content efficiently when the network is available. Syncstor removes the frustration of accessing business applications remotely.
Is your business suffering because users can’t make it to work and are lacking good tools to access their applications remotely? Contact Replify – and help your business work more efficiently, regardless of the weather.
