Dell South Africa to Resell NetEx HyperIP WAN Optimization Virtual Appliance to Meet Growing Demand for Disaster Recovery

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Jul 28, 2011) - NetEx®, a leading company providing a WAN optimization virtual appliance solution, today announced that it has signed Dell South Africa as a reseller for its HyperIP WAN optimization virtual appliance to keep pace with the growing demand in the region.

Dell's global business strategy combines its direct customer model with new distribution channels to ensure better market coverage. Developing industry and commerce in the region in medium and large corporations in the telecom, finance, manufacturing, government, and resources sectors is expected to drive demand for virtualized storage infrastructures.

"We are pleased to introduce HyperIP WAN optimization virtual appliances to South Africa for greater return on IT investment," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President, Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "Dell South Africa is an ideal reseller for HyperIP as HyperIP has been proven to reduce replication, backup, and migration times in Dell storage environments by 60 to 90 percent."

More information on the use of HyperIP with Dell iSCSI SANs is available via a HyperIP Application Note for Dell EqualLogic.
