NetEx Enhances HyperIP

MINNEAPOLIS -- NetEx, the leader in high speed DR over IP, today announced Sync on Demand capability for its award-winning HyperIP® Data Center Acceleration solution. This gives users a free bandwidth upgrade to perform an initial data synchronization operation between the main data center and the disaster recovery site and helps with the seamless integration of new backup software implementations.

The new Sync on Demand feature is the latest move by NetEx to maximize the customer value of the highly-scalable HyperIP platform. The company previously launched a Recovery on Demand function with a similar temporary free performance upgrade for customers who experience a major outage at the main location in order to speed their recovery operations up to the maximum of 800 Mbps.

With the new Sync on Demand functionality, when customers first install HyperIP, the unit will include a temporary software key to run at the maximum data rate based upon the available bandwidth so they can perform the full data synchronization operation in the most efficient manner. Subsequent replication operations will return to the maximum speed of the software license purchased, and includes only changed data blocks, minimizing the amount of data that needs to be sent to the remote DR site during normal production timeframes.

“The innovative software-focused design of the HyperIP platform gives us the flexibility to build in a broad range of unique features to constantly improve the customer value proposition of the industry’s only Data Center Acceleration appliance,” said Diamond Lauffin, founder of the Lauffin Group and a consultant to NetEx. “While other vendors are still trying to figure out remote office-to-data center replication, NetEx is the only vendor focused on the specific needs of data center-to-data center replication and DR. Capabilities such as Sync on Demand and Recovery on Demand are a direct response to the unique high-end requirements of customers who need to optimize their recovery time objectives as a business imperative or put the health of the company in jeopardy because of data unavailability and application downtime.”
