Decision Lens Implements NetEx's HyperIP Virtual Appliance

NetEx announces that Decision Lens has implemented the HyperIP virtual appliance to improve the performance of its SAN system's volume replication function to duplicate production system data to its cross-country disaster recovery site.

Decision Lens works with leading organizations to bring structure and quality to key decisions. Its solutions manage the strategic alignment of goals and priorities with investments in people, projects, products and suppliers for a more accurate, repeatable and transplant process for decision making. The company was using SAN replication in an attempt to inexpensively duplicate its all Linux-based virtual machines in a VMware infrastructure cluster in Ashburn, Virginia to a DR site in Phoenix, Arizona. Latency issues created long replication times resulting in the DR site always being several hours out of sync with production.

NetEx's HyperIP is a software-only, VMware Ready WAN optimization solution, ideal for moving large data sets across WANs securely, swiftly and seamlessly. Patent-pending technology accelerates and optimizes industry-leading data replication and file transfer applications by aggregating multiple data replication applications over a shared connection while mitigating the inherent network latency and network disruption for long-distance remote TCP data transmissions. HyperIP supports long-distance data transfers at up to 800 Mb/s, the highest performance of any WAN optimization solution on the market, and 25 to more than 100 percent faster than competitive products. Transfer speed is optimized for the full range of data management applications, including backup & remote replication and business continuance/disaster recovery. NetEx offers HyperIP for cloud infrastructures as a software-only configuration, enabling customers to quickly deploy the acceleration software into their existing VMware infrastructures.
