HellermannTyton Selects Certeon's aCelera to Optimize Its Global Manufacturing Business

HellermannTyton Slashes Its Replication Window Times by 92% Using aCelera Sync; Up to 50% Less Than Competitive Hardware and Software-Based WAN Acceleration Solutions

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - Business continuity processes such as backup and replication are often crippled over the Wide Area Network (WAN) leaving most organizations to throw bandwidth at the problem. HellermannTyton, a global systems manufacturer, instead chose to deploy Certeon's aCelera Sync solution to cut its replication window times from 13 hours to less than one hour. HellermannTyton also found Certeon's solution to be up to 50 percent less than the cost of competitive solutions, especially hardware-based appliances.

"With aCelera Sync, we have been able to significantly decrease our replication time and increase our effective throughput all without having to purchase additional bandwidth," said Chris Cantwell, IT Manager, HellermannTyton. "We required a solution that was flexible enough to fit in to our existing VMware environment at a fraction of the cost of competing hardware solutions. Certeon fit the bill perfectly."

HellermannTyton operates a corporate data center and disaster recovery site equipped with Dell EqualLogic PS6500 and PS5500 SANs. Replicating between 80 GigaBytes to 120 GigaBytes of data per day took HellermannTyton 13 hours prior to installing Certeon's aCelera Sync solution. After installing aCelera Sync in its data center and recovery site in under 30 minutes, HellermannTyton immediately benefited from a 92 percent decrease in replication time without purchasing additional bandwidth.

Low bandwidth, high latency, contention and packet loss can result in elongated and intolerable backup window times. Many companies buy more bandwidth trying to solve backup window problems. aCelera Sync is specifically designed to overcome all these network hurdles and enable enterprises like HellermannTyton to achieve their required recovery time and recovery point objectives.

"Time to value and cost savings are critical to an enterprise's successful business continuity strategy," said Peter Dougherty, President and CEO, Certeon. "Certeon's aCelera Sync virtual appliance enables companies like HellermannTyton to start and run replication and disaster recovery operations in less time and for less cost than hardware appliances, shortening time to ROI from their storage investments."

aCelera virtual appliance software is built to reduce response time, increase scalability and lower IT application service costs. aCelera Sync software, delivers the industry's most flexible and lowest total cost solution that simultaneously reduces backup and recovery windows while lowering network bandwidth requirements for the business continuity market. The solution also enables IT and storage managers to increase the coverage of their remote business continuity environments and eliminate the costs and risks of off-site tape transport and storage. aCelera Sync makes backup and replication "as often as needed" a reality.

Certeon's aCelera Sync accelerates industry leading backup and replication solutions, including, but not limited to, products from Compellent, CommVault, Double-Take, Dell EqualLogic, EMC, FalconStor, LeftHand, Network Appliance and Symantec.
