Original Press Release:

NetEx Now Shipping Virtual HyperIP for VMware

Industry's first and only software-based data transport acceleration solution for VMware ESX Infrastructures

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 17 -- NetEx(R), the leader in high-speed data transport over TCP, today announced general availability of its award-winning HyperIP(R) data transport acceleration software for VMware ESX infrastructure environments.

HyperIP for VMware is a software-only implementation of NetEx's award-winning business continuity and disaster recovery optimization solution for backup, recovery and data replication applications, enabling unmatched flexibility in deployment and performance scalability on virtual machines. HyperIP is the industry's first and only software-based data transport acceleration solution, providing infinite scalability without requiring hardware upgrades.

Bringing HyperIP to VMware environments optimizes DR and replication performance for enterprises that have adopted VMware as the centerpiece of their data center consolidation initiatives that are signifying a return to mainframe-type computing with highly-centralized operations.

"The clear trend for enterprise IT is the creation of very dense racks of blade servers with multi-core processors packed with dozens of VMware virtual machines," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President, Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "HyperIP solves the challenge of enabling all of these virtual machines to rapidly replicate and recover data to and from remote sites without the excessive spending for additional bandwidth or costly WAN optimization appliances that lack any performance scalability. Very simply, in this era of economic caution, HyperIP enables enterprises to do more with their current infrastructure and maximize their hardware and bandwidth ROI."

HyperIP for VMware delivers unmatched performance in accelerating BC/DR operations by moving TCP data more efficiently using patent-pending technology. It accelerates and optimizes the industry-leading VMware-enabled data replication and file transfer applications -- including Symmetrix Remote Data Facility from EMC, NetApp's SnapVault and Hitatchi Data Systems' TrueCopy -- by aggregating 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.

The innovative scalable software design at the core of HyperIP enables customers to choose from a variety of scalable configurations, based upon bandwidth required, with data rates ranging from 1 Mb/s up to 800MB/s and beyond. If a customer's speed requirements change they can enable HyperIP for higher data rates via a simple software key, eliminating the cost and complexity of competitive products that are designed with hardware-enforced speed limitations that require forklift hardware upgrades -- both at the local data center and remote site -- to achieve higher data rates.

Virtual HyperIP for VMware is currently available with pricing starting at less than $1,800 US list.
