Emulex Uses Packeteer

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Packeteer (NASDAQ:PKTR), the global leader in WAN application delivery, today announced that Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX), a leading supplier of enterprise-class storage networking solutions, is using Mobiliti™ software to provide its mobile workforce with distributed file application access, data synchronization and automatic backups. Leveraging Mobiliti ensures the availability and accuracy of critically important corporate data, whether residing on user laptops or on the company’s servers. Mobiliti also synchronizes and backs up changes to Microsoft® Outlook® files over the WAN to improve the integrity of all Emulex email communications and achieve applicable regulatory compliance.

Emulex Corporation has teams of engineering, sales and support personnel around the world. A significant number of its employees travel regularly, which presents a number of IT challenges, including continuous access to files on remote servers and automatic back ups for files stored on user laptops.

“Our biggest challenge involved synchronizing and backing up PST files created by Microsoft Outlook,” recalls Dean Lissner, IT director, Emulex Corporation. “Every time you touch a PST file it gets modified, which required us to back up the whole file every time there was even the slightest change. With such a large mobile workforce, email communications are vitally important to our daily operations. We clearly needed something much more efficient and simple, which is why we standardized on Packeteer’s Mobiliti software.”
