U.S. Financial Institution, Central Bancorp, Deployed SANGFOR WANO Solution

Mar.2014, Colorado, SANGFOR ( is very pleased to announce its WANO (Wide Area Network Optimization Controller) has been deployed by Central Bancorp (, reported SANGFOR U.S. team.

SANGFOR (SANGFOR Inc.) is a technology leader of web security, WAN optimization and Internet access management in Asia Pacific Region; and Central Bancorp is a leading private financial institution in U.S. Central Bancorp deployed 2 SANGFOR WANOs in the headquarter and DRC to accelerate its disaster recovery speed in earlier Q1, 2014.

Central Bancorp is a private U.S. financial institution, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, under which there are a number of branches respectively operating banking, funds, mortgages, insurance and other businesses for enterprise customers, business experts and individual users with customized integrated financial products and services, including wealth management, fund management, mortgage lending, asset valuation, property and casualty insurance. Among which one branch bank in New Mexico is also the disaster recovery center of Central Bancorp.

Between the disaster recovery center in New Mexico and its headquarter in Colorado, Central Bancorp used a 30Mbps bandwidth provided by carriers for interconnection. Constrained by bandwidth limitations, the effect of backing up the data to current storage area network (SAN) of the disaster recovery center is not ideal, especially for Dell Equal Logic data replication. Owen Stockton, IT vice president of Central Bancorp said, he has considered both bandwidth upgrading and WAN acceleration solutions, but the WAN optimization devices provided by 2 U.S. local vendors (Riverbed and Silver Peak) were not adopted because the evaluation results did not meet their expectations. Therefore, Owen turned to test SANGFOR WANO (WAN optimization) products, which he learned in the U.S. Midsize Enterprise Summit East (MESE).

Central Bancorp deployed one SANGFOR WANO device in Colorado and New Mexico respectively, both were deployed through bridge mode between the local LAN gateway and WAN router, and the one in New Mexico was configured remotely. Owen is quite satisfied with the test results: “Before the deployment of SANGFOR WANO, it takes around 40 hours to transmit 80G of data sets from Colorado to New Mexico, but now it can be done within a day. Meanwhile, transmitting7-8G of data sets from the disaster recovery center to our headquarter also only requires less than half of the previous time.”

Through the data transmission acceleration for disaster recovery of SANGFOR WANO, Central Bancorp dramatically improves the transmission capacity of the line, reduces the bandwidth and the time needed for disaster recovery projects, thus making a more rational use of the existing network resources and improving network efficiency.
