In Pictures: Top tools for WAN optimisation

Upstarts Exinda and Ipanema challenge network optimisation kingpin, Riverbed

Ipanema is an aggressive small vendor with a new approach to network optimization. We were impressed by the strength of Ipanema’s Salsa management system and the power of their global traffic management system, unique in the marketplace, that manages bandwidth across a meshed WAN -- a common topology in today’s networks. To accomplish its magic, though, Ipanema has a fairly strict way of thinking about application management that has severe limits. Poor ability to export application visibility information and some brittleness in design and features makes us cautious in recommending the solution. However, any network manager interested in optimizing WAN application delivery and multiple branch office links should evaluate Ipanema.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
