Products Peak worldwide with Dell EqualLogic

15 Nov 12

Silver Peak Systems has revealed more customers across the world are deploying their virtual products with Dell EqualLogic storage solutions to accelerate offsite replication workloads.

Coming from North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific, the data accelerator firm says by replicating data faster over existing networks, customers can exceed recovery point objectives (RPO) while minimising infrastructure costs.

“As a Dell global preferred partner, we are excited to see more customers reaping the benefits of a Silver Peak-accelerated Dell EqualLogic deployment,” says Marc Trimuschat, vice president of alliances and the Dell relationship for Silver Peak.

“Our software-based solutions enable quick and easy deployment of WAN acceleration from anywhere in the world, and with our free self-service trials directly from our website, anyone can start optimising their disaster recovery deployments immediately.”

Silver Peak says Dell EqualLogic Auto-Replication can periodically replicate data from primary sites to designated disaster recovery sites, with Silver Peak VXOA software optimising the data movement and providing granular visibility and control over the traffic.

In lab testing, the products showed gains of up to 15x for replication throughput, while real-world deployments have realised up to 20x with up to 90% WAN bandwidth reduction.

Across Asia Pacific, Silver Peak says companies like Deswik Mining achieve RPOs over longer distances using less bandwidth.
