Silver Peak Systems, the leader in mobilizing data over distance, today announced that its Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) software has been tested and qualified with Dell EqualLogic replication. In joint lab testing, Silver Peak demonstrated performance gains of up to 15x for replication throughput, while real-world deployments have realized up to 20x with up to 90% WAN bandwidth reduction. By replicating data faster over existing networks, customers can exceed recovery point objectives (RPO) while minimizing infrastructure costs.
Disaster recovery strategies address the need to safeguard data against natural disasters, human error and malice. Enterprises manage these risks by replicating primary data to secondary sites. Dell EqualLogic Auto-Replication periodically replicates data from primary sites to designated disaster recovery sites, with Silver Peak VXOA software optimizing the data movement and providing granular visibility and control over the traffic. This helps ensure business continuity in the event of an outage.
With Silver Peak’s industry-leading portfolio of physical and virtual WAN optimization solutions, Dell EqualLogic customers can replicate 20-times more data over existing WAN connections. This ensures recovery point objectives (RPO) are met and disaster recovery costs are minimized by leveraging lower cost WAN infrastructures.
