"Once they've tried it, they like it," says Budhani. The company in June officially unveiled its DMS offering, which provides an 80%-plus WAN footprint reduction via hardware dedupe and a five to eight times price/performance advantage over all comers. The company is currently doubling its sales staff to try and keep up with demand.
According to an in-depth lab report from Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), Infineta's hyper-scale WAN optimization product not only reduces the time-to-completion for finite workflows, but also significantly reduced the amount of traffic traversing inter-data-center WANs. It reported that DMS' most unique feature is the Velocity Dedupe Engine, a hardware-based deduplication engine that enables the DMS to maintain the highest levels of data reduction at multigigabit speeds while guaranteeing port-to-port latencies in the tens of microseconds: "ESG Lab has confirmed that Infineta’s Data Mobility Switch is more than capable of satisfying the most demanding data-center-to-data-center replication and server mobility needs for businesses of all sizes."
Infineta says its pay-as-you-go data migration service enables companies to improve business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) by bringing new data centers online faster and by quickly decommissioning old data centers; increase business agility by enabling rapid data center applications deployment; avoid large capex; reduce opex on project staff and equipment by four to five times; and curtail expenditures on additional WAN capacity by leveraging existing WAN infrastructure.
