Working from Home Acceleration
The Replify Accelerator has been improving the user experience for home workers, and remote workers, since 2007. Replify’s Accelerator Client on the user’s device connects to a Replify Virtual Appliance in the office or data center. Any access to those servers is accelerated by the Replify’s Intelligent Optimization Engine, complete with WAN caching, compression and protocol optimization.
As well as improving the user experience, the Replify nodes greatly reduce the load on the WAN link. If you have many users working from home, Replify can reduce the amount of data over the office link by up to 97%. Typically our users see at least 50% offload of data.

Branch Office to Data Center Acceleration
Install a Replify Virtual Appliance in your branch office location and another Virtual Appliance in the data center to see an immediate improvement in user experience and a reduction in bandwidth usage between sites.
This is the most common Replify WAN Accelerator deployment and can be set up on hardware you already have available. Replify’s focus on flexibility means it can run on a wide range of devices, even with limited resources.
With Replify’s pure software-based heritage, adding Flexible WAN optimization as a virtual function to your SD-WAN solution couldn’t be easier.
Replify has long been focused on OEM partners with a proven process for engaging their development teams to enable easy integration into existing solutions.
Today, Replify’s technology is already being used by SDN providers including SD-WAN vendors and customers who need to give their SD-WAN a speed boost.
Can Replify accelerate cloud applications? Most definitely, yes. Just install the Replify Virtual Appliance in the cloud, data center or branch office and the Replify Mobile Accelerator Client on the end-user device. When the user access their cloud application, they’ll get all the benefits of the Replify WAN Accelerator: WAN caching, compression and protocol optimization.
The Replify Accelerator supports all the major cloud providers such as Amazon, Rackspace, Azure and more.
Where Replify Can Be Deployed
The Replify WAN Accelerator can easily be deployed on a range of hypervisors such as VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM/QEMU, Docker and many others on request.
The Virtual Appliance can also be deployed on native hardware. The Replify Accelerator has been successfully deployed on pfSense, Raspbian as well as a wide variety of Linux distributions.
There are Replify Mobile Accelerator Clients available Linux, Windows, Android and macOS.
Easy Integration with APIs
The Replify WAN Accelerator runs as a background process on a (typically) Debian Operating System and relies on OS specific interception such as iptables, ipfw, WFP etc. to redirect selected traffic to accelerator for optimization.
The lack of kernel modifications and the use of standard tools for interception makes Replify WAN Acceleration truely flexible! This flexibility allows it to integrate seamlessly with pre-existing solutions. It can also run on low-end hardware, such as a Raspberry Pi!
If you need lower-level access to the Replify Accelerator system than the GUI, the comprehensive Replify Accelerator API provides easy access to configure the system, as well as access to reporting metrics.
Accelerate Satellite and LTE Connections
The Replify WAN Accelerator can greatly improve data usage over satellite: both in boosting performance and reducing bandwidth. The Replify Accelerator uses its own proven WAN technologies to ensure the traffic is optimized for satellite and LTE traffic meaning that users can access data quicker. Due to the bandwidth savings, bandwidth costs are greatly reduced.
Replify Accelerator data connections are tuned to work well in high latency, low bandwidth environments such as satellite internet and LTE networks. This along with our standard protocol optimization, compression and de-duplication techniques can result in real benefits for satellite users both in terms of performance and data offload.
The Replifys Flexible WAN Acceleration has been installed on on over 500 private jets, fleets of ships and many other environments relying on satellite and LTE. Combined with mobile workers this all means that the Replify Accelerator literally works on planes, trains and automobiles!
