Silver Peak Expands Velocity Solution to Speed Dell Compellent Offsite Replication
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
Dell (News - Alert) Storage Forum-Silver
Peak Systems, the leader in accelerating data
over distance, today announced that its Silver Peak (News - Alert) Velocity solution
acceleration has been expanded to include Dell
Compellent Remote Instant Replay™ technology. Silver Peak Velocity
allows storage administrators to accelerate their offsite replication
workloads quickly and easily. Starting at just $15,995, Silver Peak
Velocity software makes replication acceleration affordable for all Dell
When the Silver Peak Velocity solution is combined with Dell Compellent
Remote Instant Replay technology for replication, companies can protect
up to 30x more data over existing networks, reducing replication times
from hours to minutes without having to invest in expensive
infrastructure upgrades. This minimizes bandwidth expenditures and helps
storage administrators meet their most stringent recovery point
Silver Peak Velocity leverages Silver Peak's Virtual Acceleration Open
Architecture (VXOA) to overcome common network challenges that hamper
offsite replication, including limited WAN bandwidth, distance and
network quality. With Silver Peak's unique storage forwarding method of
deployment, the Velocity solution makes replication acceleration easy
for any storage administrator. Deployment takes less than 20 minutes and
can be done completely from the storage administrator's domain-no
network configuration changes are required. Administrators simply
download and install Silver Peak software in the data center and
disaster recovery sites, point the Dell Compellent arrays to Silver
Peak, and in minutes start accelerating replication traffic.
In lab testing, the combined solution delivers 6x to 30x better
replication performance on average over un-optimized replication
environments. For example,on a 155 megabit-per-second (Mbps) shared
network between Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas (40 milliseconds of
latency), the time required to replicate a 20 GB dataset was reduced
from 1.3 hours to 3 minutes.
"Silver Peak is expanding its status as a Dell global preferred partner
for WAN optimization by giving Dell Compellent users unprecedented
replication performance in an easy-to-deploy, cost-effective bundle,"
said Marc Trimuschat, vice president of alliances and the Dell
relationship for Silver Peak. "By deploying Silver Peak Velocity for
Dell Compellent, enterprises can easily meet their RPOs, lower disaster
recovery costs, and extend distances between replication sites."
A US-based engineering consulting company is using Dell Compellent
Remote Instant Replay and Silver Peak to replicate 200 GB of data
between Texas and Maryland. Originally, the company was only getting 1.1
GB/hr of replication throughput due to the long distance and low-quality
WAN connection. With the combined Silver Peak and Dell Compellent
solution, this company is realizing a 25x performance improvement,
having reduced replication times from 180 hours to less than seven
hours-well within the company's 12-hour RPO.
Similarly, Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union (Denali) improved replication
performance by over 66 percent with Silver Peak and Dell
Compellent Remote Instant Replay. Prior to deploying the
joint solution, replication of a 50 GB dataset between Anchorage and
Fairbanks, Alaska was taking 11 hours. After deploying Silver
Peak, replication times were reduced to less than five hours.
"Silver Peak's software is really simple to setup," says Travis Rupp,
associate vice president of project management in IT for Denali. "We met
our recovery point objectives without doing any special tweaks to the
network or datasets, which really makes Silver Peak stand out."
Availability and Pricing
Silver Peak Velocity for Dell Compellent is available today. Pricing for
the Silver Peak Velocity solution is $15,995 for a one-year
subscription, which includes licenses for two Silver Peak Velocity
virtual machines and full support. Perpetual pricing options are also
