To speed access to business-critical applications for its 11,000 employees, Platinum Equity portfolio company KEMET Corporation announced it will use cloud acceleration services from Virtela.
"With could-based application acceleration, we've experienced significant reductions in our application response times overall and we have been able to postpone bandwidth increases in many cases," said Brian Burch, senior director of worldwide infrastructure for KEMET. "It has led to higher productivity and a higher return on investment, since we do not have to deploy and manage dedicated appliances at all of our branch offices around the world."
The only cloud platform purpose-built for enterprise networking, security, and mobility, Virtela ESC features open architecture and accesses Vitrela's 50 local cloud centers to accelerate applications near the content source.
KEMET is a leading manufacturer of capacitors for myriad applications. Its products include tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper, and electrolytic capacitors.
