Description: Fortinet FortiCache 1000D - Application accelerator - GigE - 2U - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: FCH-1000D
This FortiCache appliance gives you control of your network by enabling you to cache content and accelerate applications, thus reducing the impact of these new pressures on the network. The FortiCache high-end caching solution provides application caching for large enterprises, ISPs, mobile providers, telcos, universities and educational grids. By caching application content, organizations can reuse popular content rather than download the same content each time a user requests it. The integrated FortiGuard web filtering allows the network administrator to block access to selected content (e.g. adult content, malicious etc) to protect users or offer differentiated services.
- Reduces bandwidth requirements by caching repeatedly accessed content on-net
- Caches resource heavy viral video content
- Reduces the need for costly network upgrades
- Improves network latency which increases customer satisfaction
- Secures the enterprise
- Increases enterprise communication
- Bandwidth reduction and application acceleration
The Internet is increasingly driven by short-term phenomena as news stories, sporting events, viral videos and games drive spikes in bandwidth demand. Interest in such content can spread within minutes, proliferate quickly and generate huge loads on the network. The result is congestion, latency and unplanned cost. By reducing the amount of bandwidth used, particularly during demand spikes, service providers and enterprises can deliver a higher quality of service to their customers, improve customer satisfaction, retain a larger customer base and ultimately drive profitability.
- FortiCache network control
You may be battling against the continuous need to upgrade bandwidth and the associated costs. In some locations, it may not be possible to purchase additional bandwidth. In these situations, FortiCache can enable your organization to remove the need for costly upgrades and gain more performance from your existing investments. FortiCache enables the network administrator to optimize and accelerate the network by keeping as much traffic as possible "on net" and thus decrease the utilization of valuable external connectivity. This allows upgrades to be planned strategically rather than reactively. FortiCache understands the delivery format of content delivery networks, enabling caching of dynamic, distributed and streaming video content, even if such video is padded with advertisements or the file is served from different locations within the Content Delivery Network.
- WAN optimization
Remote or satellite offices often suffer from latency to the head office network which results in excessive file transfer, open and save times and critically, frustrated staff. FortiCache WAN Optimization alleviates this with object and byte caching to reduce traffic between offices and datacenters and through optimization of "chatty" protocols. Such optimizations can generate significant improvement to network performance and improve staff satisfaction.
