|NetEx, the worldwide leader in high performance data transport solutions, has joined the VERITAS Enabled Programme and has completed interoperability testing of NetEx HyperIP for use with VERITAS Volume Replicator.
The VERITAS Enabled Programme ensures products are joint-tested and validated to help customers manage complex, heterogeneous storage environments, ease multi-vendor implementations and reduce costs through improved storage utilisation and management.
NetEx develops HyperIP, the fastest industry-hardened high-volume data transfer protocol for IP-based WANs. HyperIP expands the performance envelope of storage application performance over WANs up to 480 Mbps. This far outpaces any other technology on the market today.
NetEx's exclusive acceleration and shielding technology reduces bandwidth and equipment costs for time-sensitive, mission-critical data for organizations with high-speed WAN linked sites. HyperIP mitigates TCP/IP degradation issues associated with packet loss, regardless of distance. This results in an application throughput boost ranging from 300 to 1,000 percent compared to standard IP networks. Turning on HyperIP compression increases that throughput an additional two to 15 times, depending on the compressibility of the data.
By joining the VERITAS Enabled Programme, NetEx and VERITAS customers can benefit from significantly higher levels of performance and data protection as a result of solutions that are tested, validated and supported by the two companies. This relationship will help guarantee interoperability and assist companies in managing the complexity within today's real-world data environments with minimum headaches and faster resolution of support issues.
