NetEx HyperIP Acceleration Software Scales to Wire Speeds

This just in from our JPR folks. We will chat up with NetEX folks coming Wednesday!

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – January 28th, 2008 – NetEx, the leader in high speed data transport over TCP, today announced a new version of its award winning HyperIP® software technology that boosts performance by almost 50 percent to deliver near-native wire speed performance of 800 Mb/s and currently residing on a non-proprietary, off-the-self Intel appliance.
This new speed standard enables NetEx customers to purchase the HyperIP data acceleration solution on an industry standard platform at 1.5 Mb/s and then add performance as needed up to 800 Mb/s all in the same appliance with no hardware upgrades required. Customers can purchase the performance they need instead of being forced to purchase a specific hardware model with vendor-imposed performance limits as offered by other WAN optimization products that lack the capabilities to compete in enterprise replication and recovery environments. As bandwidth requirements grow performance upgrades are accomplished by supplying a non-disruptive software key, allowing user to pay only for what they need while providing true investment protection. Unlike their competitors, HyperIP software features are not priced separately. Every HyperIP appliance is a complete turnkey solution with advanced features, including TCP application acceleration to mitigate latency, packet loss shield to protect against variable circuit quality conditions that can disrupt and degrade application performance, block-level adaptive compression for up to a 15x performance boost, and application aggregation.

The key to HyperIP’s unmatched performance scalability is a software-focused design that does not restrict customers to limited speed ranges. Because of this design innovation, NetEx is capable of leveraging the latest in industry-standard server technology and ride the technology curve for increased performance. Other technologies such as the hardware based WAN optimization providers lock customers into proprietary hardware with platform-imposed speed restrictions.

By leveraging the versatility of its software-based technology, NetEx was the first company to offer “Recovery on Demand” feature which allows customers to non-disruptively increase their WAN capacity by 10X by simply increasing their HyperIP performance key during recovery operations or during planned recovery testing. The Recovery on Demand feature is free of charge to NetEx customers for a period of 10 days and is available at any time for customer requirements. Recovery on Demand caused a stir amongst WAN optimizer vendors and triggered a flurry of “me-too” feature sets claims from competitors with products that were not designed to support efficient, high-speed data center-to-data center data transport. The reality is that none of those claims of Recovery on Demand features comparable to HyperIP are true, given the hardware constraints that other vendors impose on performance. The limitations of proprietary hardware platforms preclude anything close the performance scalability and Recovery on Demand functionality available with NetEx and HyperIP. The only way for other vendors to improve performance beyond the hardware-enforced limits for customers is to junk their hardware investment and do a forklift upgrade to a new hardware platform.

“Building HyperIP as a software technology gives NetEx customers three distinct benefits: the ability to run on industry-standard hardware lowering the initial buy-in cost, leveraging the ongoing processor and system bus improvements from Intel to enhance performance, and the “pay-as-you-go and grow” scalability so that they only pay for the bandwidth to meet current needs without sacrificing additional future upgrades all the way up to near wire-speed performance,” said Diamond Lauffin, President of the Lauffin Group and a consultant to NetEx.

HyperIP is NetEx’s award-winning business continuity and disaster recovery optimization solution for backup, recovery and data replication applications. It provides unmatched performance for moving TCP data efficiently using patent-pending technology that accelerates and optimizes the industry-leading data replication and file transfer applications by aggregating multiple data replication applications over a shared connection while mitigating the inherent network latency and network disruption for long-distance remote TCP/IP data transmissions. HyperIP line-optimization appliances support long-distance data transfers at up to 800 Mb/s, the highest performance of any optimization appliance on the market, and 25 to more than 100 percent faster than competitive products. Transfer speed is optimized for the full range of data management applications, including backup & remote replication and business continuance/disaster recovery (BC/DR). HyperIP has been qualified with EMC’s SRDF, Centera Replicator and Celerra Replicator, TrueCopy from Hitachi Data Systems, IBM’s Tivoli Storage Manager and Global Mirror, SnapVault and SnapMirror from Network Appliance, DataGuard and DBsync from Oracle and Symantec’s NetBackup, Replication Exec and Volume Replicator.

HyperIP is currently available in a variety of scalable configurations, based upon bandwidth required with data rates ranging from 1.5 Mb/s up to 800 Mb/s with pricing starting at $6K - $8K per appliance.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
