NetEx Adds Hyper-V WAN Optimization Virtual Appliance With Release of HyperIP 6.0

HyperIP Now the Fastest WAN Optimization Virtual Appliance for the Two Most Widely-Used Server Virtualization Platforms

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - NetEx®, a leading company providing a WAN optimization virtual appliance solution, today unveiled HyperIP® Version 6.0, featuring HyperIP for Hyper-V, a fully-integrated virtual appliance that opens up the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 platform to the award-winning benefits of HyperIP's market-leading WAN optimization.

With the introduction of HyperIP for Hyper-V, NetEx now provides the fastest WAN optimization virtual appliances for the two most widely-used server virtualization platforms: Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX.

Previous versions of HyperIP supported Hyper-V optimization management tools and applications, including Live Migration, enabling operating virtual machines to be sent to other Hyper-V physical hosts across optimized WAN connections without disruption of service. HyperIP 6.0 incorporates all of that functionality into a fully integrated Hyper-V virtual appliance.

HyperIP 6.0 is the first and only virtual appliance that provides interoperable WAN optimization across Hyper-V and VMware environments. Companies can accelerate more than 40 of the top DR, Replication and Virtual Machine Migration Applications at up to 1 Gbps or more using HyperIP for VMware at one end of the WAN and HyperIP for Hyper-V at the other. WAN users are no longer restricted by their choice of virtual environment from choosing the correct optimization solution for their critical data movement applications.

According to Deni Connor, founding analyst of Storage Strategies NOW, "NetEx's HyperIP WAN optimization virtual appliance unlocks the potential of Hyper-V as well as VMware. With its support of the top disaster recovery, replication and virtual machine applications, it is the ideal choice for supercharging the movement of critical data and meeting service level agreements."

"The release of HyperIP for Hyper-V fulfills a promise we made last year when NetEx first announced support for Hyper-V application to bring a full-featured virtual appliance to Microsoft's virtualization infrastructure with the same game-changing WAN optimization capabilities that VMware customers have enjoyed for the past two years," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "Whatever your hypervisor of choice -- VMware or Hyper-V -- you can utilize HyperIP on either platform. And if you run on both platforms we can accommodate that too."

NetEx's HyperIP for Hyper-V unlocks the potential of Hyper-V for data movement and virtual machine migration beyond a single data center to DR sites or remote offices. The HyperIP for Hyper-V WAN optimization virtual appliance is ideal for moving large data sets across WANs securely, swiftly and seamlessly. Patent-pending technology accelerates data replication and file transfers by aggregating multiple applications over a shared connection, and mitigating network conditions that lead to poor application performance and throughput. HyperIP supports a full range of Hyper-V and third-party data management applications, including backup, replication and business continuance/disaster recovery (BC/DR). NetEx offers HyperIP for cloud infrastructures as a software-only configuration, enabling customers to quickly deploy a WAN accelerator into their existing Hyper-V infrastructures. HyperIP 6.0 has been optimized to support hyperthreading technology for hypervisors and produces market-leading WAN optimization data rates of up to 1 Gbps. With dedicated resources HyperIP can sustain network interface data rates in excess of 1 Gbps.

HyperIP for Hyper-V provides a true value-added solution for resellers that sell exclusively to pure Microsoft accounts with a unique Hyper-V product to optimize storage and virtual machine migrations that were previously impossible or impractical within Hyper-V. Microsoft resellers and integrators interested in becoming NetEx HyperChannel Partners and adding HyperIP for Hyper-V to their solution offerings can contact NetEx at
