SAN JOSE, Calif., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization solutions for Big Traffic workflows, announced today that its Data Mobility Switch (DMS) has been selected by Rezolve Group over competitors to significantly accelerate replication and backup traffic over the WAN while providing a strong foundation to easily adapt and implement any future data mobility initiatives.
Rezolve, an innovative student aid technology and services company, selected Infineta's DMS over Riverbed's Steelhead product to immediately accelerate data protection workflows by as much as 8X, while also initiating a WAN bandwidth growth strategy that works hand-in-hand with the deployed DMS devices. Rezolve aims to utilize the DMS to accelerate its entire set of inter-data center workflows, including block-level replication traffic, database replication traffic, and VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) based traffic.
"Our selection criteria for a WAN optimization solution didn't simply focus on addressing today's needs to accelerate various data protection applications," stated Robert Reeder, CIO of Rezolve Group. "We were also looking for a solution that would enable us to build out a strong foundation for our long-distance WAN for future data growth and for upcoming projects. Infineta's solutions beat out the competition in terms of sheer performance, and can scale to optimize traffic rates that we expect to be driving in the near future. Most importantly, we don't need to rip and replace DMS units to achieve higher performance; we can simply purchase higher-speed licenses and carry out in-field upgrades all the way to 10Gbps performance. We see the DMS as a strategic, long term solution that will keep up with our tremendous data growth."
"Rezolve's selection of the DMS validates the performance and scalability of the WAN optimization platform we have built here at Infineta," said Raj Kanaya, Infineta Co-Founder and CEO. "We are extremely pleased as this further corroborates the fact that the DMS is the highest-performing and most scalable WAN optimization solution for inter-data center applications, bar none."
Infineta Systems is the first networking company to develop and market WAN optimization systems that accelerate traffic over inter-data center WANs. Infineta's Data Mobility Switch (DMS) can accelerate traffic at up to 10Gbps while adding just microseconds of processing latency, making it the best WAN Optimization solution for inter-datacenter applications. With the Infineta DMS, enterprises can enable critical applications such as long-distance replication, cross-site virtualization and Big Data without adding expensive bandwidth.
