NetEx Extends HyperIP Support

MINNEAPOLIS -- NetEx, the leader in high-speed data transport, today announced that its HyperIP® Data Center Optimization technology has been qualified by the EMC® E-Lab™ for interoperability with the EMC Symmetrix® DMX series of enterprise storage systems and EMC RecoverPoint CRR (Continuous Remote Replication).

The Symmetrix qualification is the latest between EMC and NetEx. In this recent round of qualification testing, along with the Symmetrix arrays, EMC E-Lab also qualified HyperIP on storage arrays replicated by RecoverPoint to accelerate data movement across a WAN when using the Continuous Remote Replication feature of RecoverPoint. HyperIP was E-lab qualified on a remote replication test bed running Symmetrix Remote Data Facility/A (SRDF®) and SRDF/DM distance protocols on the Symmetrix DMX/DMX-2, DMX-3 and DMX-4 systems. HyperIP was previously business unit and field tested by NetEx with EMC Centera® Replicator and EMC Celerra® Replicator applications and is in production with these platforms at several customer locations.

The EMC E-Lab conducts the industry's most rigorous interoperability testing, spanning every major platform and operating system. In the process, EMC E-Lab creates a deep pool of knowledge about complete environments as well as about every individual component of the solution.

“The HyperIP qualification with Symmetrix and RecoverPoint by EMC E-Lab is a major milestone for mutual NetEx and EMC customers,” said Craig Gust, CEO of NetEx. “With the vast volume of data stored on a Symmetrix system, conventional replication applications alone are sometimes insufficient to meet challenging recovery point and recovery time objectives to restore remote data over an IP-based WAN connection. HyperIP solves this problem by supercharging SRDF replication performance over TCP based WANs and thereby minimizing the risks to data availability in the case of a catastrophic site failure.”
