NetEx Virtual HyperIP for VMware Delivers up to 10x Performance in Data Replication and File Transfer over WAN

Software to be shown publicly for the first time at VMworld 2008

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - September 11th, 2008 - NetEx, the leader in high-speed data transport over TCP, today announced Virtual HyperIP® bandwidth optimization solutions for VMware environments that deliver a threefold to tenfold increase in data replication performance.

Virtual HyperIP is a software-based Data Transport Optimizer that operates on the VMware ESX server and boosts the performance of storage replication applications from vendors such as EMC, NetApp, Symantec, IBM, Data Domain, and FalconStor. Virtual HyperIP mitigates TCP performance issues that are common when moving data over wide-area network (WAN) connections because of bandwidth restrictions, latency due to distance and/or router hop counts, packet loss and network errors. Like the company's award-winning appliance-based HyperIP, Virtual HyperIP eliminates these issues with an innovative software design developed specifically to accelerate traffic over an IP based network.

Virtual HyperIP features and benefits include:
o Virtual HyperIP becomes a software 'instance' within the ESX operating platform
o Bandwidth utilization of 90 percent between data centers or branch offices
o Scalable performance based upon software keys from 1.5 Mb/s to 800 Mb/s
o Block-level compression from 2:1 to 10:1, depending on the data's compressibility
o Distance related latency mitigation up to 46,000 miles
o Aggregates multiple TCP data streams (8000+) from multiple replication applications over a highly efficient wide area network
o Supports many-to-many network configurations
o Synchronization and Recovery on demand features

"VMware is a fantastic tool that helps answer many issues related to application availability, simplified disaster recovery, reduced infrastructure cost and simplified IT administration," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "Virtual HyperIP provides even more cost reduction and IT simplification by further reducing special-purpose appliances, while giving users much greater efficiencies in migration, replication and data transport optimization."

Virtual HyperIP supports best-of-breed replication applications that protect servers, NAS devices and/or storage arrays using GigE & IP infrastructures. Virtual HyperIP can operate with another remote Virtual HyperIP, or a remote HyperIP appliance.

NetEx will demonstrate Virtual HyperIP bandwidth optimization solutions for the first time at VMworld 2008, the industry's leading virtualization event, September 15-18th at The Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas in booth #1254. Now in its fifth year, VMworld is a must-attend event for IT professionals looking for actionable ideas, innovative products and best practices for virtualizing the enterprise from the desktop to the data center.

About HyperIP

HyperIP is NetEx's award-winning business continuity and disaster recovery optimization solution for backup, recovery and data replication applications. It provides unmatched performance for moving TCP data efficiently using patent-pending technology that accelerates and optimizes industry-leading data replication and file transfer applications. HyperIP aggregates multiple data replication applications over a shared connection while mitigating the inherent network latency and network disruption for long-distance remote TCP/IP data transmissions. HyperIP data transport optimization software and appliances solutions support long-distance data transfers at up to 800 Mb/s, the highest performance 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 and remote replication and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR). HyperIP has been qualified with EMC's SRDF, Centera Replicator, Celerra Replicator, RecoverPoint and DLD3, TrueCopy from Hitachi Data Systems, IBM's Tivoli Storage Manager and Global Mirror, SnapVault and SnapMirror from Network Appliance, DataGuard and DBsync from Oracle and Symantec's NetBackup, Replication Exec and Volume Replicator, Data Domain and FalconStor's Replication products.
