NetEx Virtual HyperIP Delivers 6X Speed Improvement on VMware Data Migration

NetEx, the leader in high speed data transport over TCP, today announced that its new HyperIP for VMware acceleration software has delivered more than a 600 percent performance improvement in a live production environment for a top Managed Service Provider.

The MSP was able to reduce the transfer time of a VMware VMotion™ migration operation across a metro wide area network from 20 minutes to just 3 minutes when using HyperIP for VMware, a software-only implementation of NetEx's award-winning business continuity and disaster recovery optimization solution for backup, recovery and data replication applications. HyperIP enables unmatched flexibility in deployment and performance scalability on virtual machines and is the industry's first and only software-based data transport acceleration solution, providing infinite scalability without requiring hardware upgrades.

"The popularity of virtual machines to reduce IT costs has brought with it the same bandwidth issues and bottlenecks that physical servers face for large-scale TCP/IP data transmissions," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President, Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "HyperIP eliminates those problems in the virtual world with our Data Transport Optimization technology. With a software-only configuration, HyperIP for VMware eliminates the cost and complexity of a separate appliance, making it the ideal solution for deployment on virtual machines."

VMware’s VMotion utility enables the live migration of running VMware virtual machines from one physical server to another with zero downtime, continuous service availability, and complete transaction integrity. VMotion is a key enabling technology for creating the dynamic, automated, and self-optimizing data center, allowing users to perform hardware maintenance without scheduled downtime and proactively migrate virtual machines away from failing or underperforming servers. HyperIP for VMware allows VMotion transfers to be accomplished over wide area networks and not just within a local data center.

NetEx is a VMware Technology Alliance Partner, a program where VMware works with best-of-breed technology partners to provide them a comprehensive set of VMware technical and marketing services, support, tools and expertise to deliver enhanced value to joint customers with innovative solutions such as HyperIP for VMware.
