IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2016 — Synoptek, an Equinix Gold Managed Service Provider partner, today announced the first ever Managed Performance Hub. The unique solution enables secure, private and reliable connections to network and cloud providers, providing globally consistent security and quality of experience while significantly reducing total cost of ownership.

The solution was developed to address the needs of organizations struggling to maintain the highest level of network performance and quality of service for global users. The solution is built exclusively on Equinix world-class International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers that offer Equinix Cloud Exchange™ and Internet Exchange™. Synoptek provides all of the hardware for routing, switching and security. For an affordable monthly fee, Synoptek provides both professional services and/or ongoing 24×7 US-based managed services (including remediation and change management).

Managed Performance Hub Brings the Cloud in Reach for the Enterprise

The Performance Hub advantages are significant, enterprises can effortlessly move to the cloud thanks to easy private cloud deployment, secure and direct connectivity to public clouds, and a seamless way to create a hybrid cloud foundation. The Performance Hub is an extension of a company’s existing network into an Equinix data center. It allows an enterprise to connect its wide area network or private cloud to the Equinix network, where it can directly connect to the public cloud. The result is robust, optimized and geographically-distributed networks that prepare the enterprise network for future growth.

Realized Performance Improvements

Performance Hub solution benchmarking has shown significant improvement in performance across metro (coast-to-coast) scenarios including:

  • 50 percent improvement in http-load tests for web-based applications
  • Greater than 40 percent improvement on file transfers for Microsoft Sharepoint®
  • 40 percent improvement on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) launch times
  • Reduced jitter and latency for video streaming applications

For applications hosted on public cloud infrastructure, benchmarking showed:

  • 30 percent improvement in page-load tests for web-based applications, if consumed via Performance Hub with direct connectivity to public cloud infrastructure vs. Internet connectivity
  • 100x improvement in data transfers for data-replication applications such as Oracle® Data Guard
