Orbital Data builds WAN optimization appliances that dramatically improve application performance over long–distance, standard IP networks. Orbital Data is the first company to address this critical networking problem. Orbital Data's technology, available in the Orbital IP Express appliance, does not require changes to the network infrastructure or firewalls and is transparent to network applications. An Orbital IP Express appliance is connected to each geographic location on your network. No additional software is installed on any computer on the network. Random delays and inefficient bandwidth use are virtually eliminated allowing data to transfer from 10 to 100 times faster over any distance, making remote replication and centralized backups possible on ordinary IP networks.
