Silver Peaks with product launch

28 Sep 12

WAN acceleration specialist Silver Peak has unveiled a package of products to allow storage administrators to accelerate offsite replication workloads.

The new offering has Silver Peak on the hunt for local storage resellers – a new market for Silver Peak, activated by the Velocity WAN optimisation solution. The company held a partner pre-briefing on the new offering yesterday.

Velocity leverages the company's Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) software and simple storage forwarding to reduce ongoing disaster recovery costs by avoiding infrastructure upgrades and replicate data in less time.

“To protect data and meet recovery point objectives (RPOs), storage administrators must continually replicate data," Silver Peak says.

"When these replication workloads extend beyond the data centre to remote disaster recovery sites over WANs, administrators must contend with the adverse effects of latency, congestion and limited network capacity – all of which can significantly impair replication performance and compromise RPOs."

Velocity is currently available for NetApp SnapMirro deployments and will be available for replication solutions from Dell, EMC, Hitachi Data Systems and others in the coming months.

Silver Peak claims Velocity, which features downloadable software and a subscription-based price, provides on average 20x faster replication over existing network infrastructures.
