Media Alert: Double-Take Software, Silver Peak Systems and VMware Present "The Big Picture in Disaster Recovery"

Companies Outline How to Combine Virtualization, Replication and WAN Acceleration for Better Business Continuity

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- Silver Peak Systems (www.silver-peak.com), a leading provider of scalable Wide Area Network (WAN) acceleration solutions, today announced it has teamed up with Double-Take Software and VMware to discuss how to "put the pieces together" for an effective disaster recovery (DR) plan. On April 25, 2007 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), the companies will discuss new trends in data protection technology that span all areas of IT, citing specific examples of how real-world customers have put combined DR solutions into practice for improved business continuity.

Most enterprises have well defined Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) as part of their business continuity plans. However, it is often quite difficult to meet these objectives. For example, while 83 percent of enterprises have a goal of complete backup/replication in less than five hours, only 40 percent are actually achieving this goal. These problems are exacerbated by an increase in the volume of data that is being protected and greater geographic distances between data centers as enterprises look to protect themselves from catastrophic disasters, such as hurricanes or terrorist attacks.

Enterprises are barraged by different technologies that help solve disaster recovery challenges, such as virtualization, data replication and WAN acceleration. Because these technologies span a variety of IT segments -- servers, storage and network infrastructure -- they might appear to be disjointed on the surface. Double-Take Software, Silver Peak Systems and VMware will demonstrate how these technologies compliment one another and can easily be combined to create an effective end-to-end disaster recovery solution.

Bob Roudebush, Director of Solutions Engineering, Double-Take Software
Jeff Aaron, Director of Product Marketing, Silver Peak Systems, Inc.
Parag Patel, Senior Director of Storage Ecosystem Alliances, VMware.
