NetEx Co-Hosts Live Meeting Webinar With IBM Tivoli Storage Software

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Jan 20, 2012) - NetEx®, a leading company providing a WAN optimization virtual appliance solution, today announced that it is co-hosting a Microsoft Office Live Meeting webinar with IBM Tivoli Storage Software addressing the acceleration of disaster recovery via a complementary solution from the two companies at 1 p.m. EST January 25.

The "Accelerating DR with Tivoli Storage Management and HyperIP" event discusses the new replication features in Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 that enable a disaster recovery solution for a company's TSM-managed infrastructure and how NetEx's HyperIP WAN Optimization Virtual Appliance can accelerate those efforts by getting LAN-like speeds over a WAN to reduce the replication window from hours to minutes. Presenters include Rich Vining, Product Marketing Manager for IBM Tivoli Storage Software, and Steve Thompson, Director of Strategic Accounts and Technical Marketing at NetEx.

"With Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3, customers have a powerful tool in native replication of backup data that helps reduce the costs of maintaining a separate DR point solution and effectively simplifies overall management of the backup environment," said Thompson. "And while TSM replication is efficient in sending only incremental, deduplicated data between sites, transfer times can still be impacted by network latency over long distances. Pairing the TSM replication feature with NetEx HyperIP can accelerate data transfer by as much as 12x with HyperIP's block-level compression. This webinar will give attendees a better understanding of how utilizing WAN acceleration solutions such as HyperIP in conjunction with TSM can help overcome the issues of moving data over distance between physical DR locations."

HyperIP has been validated as Ready for IBM Tivoli. This is an exclusive IBM designation for validating the integration of Independent Software Vendor and / or Business Partner solutions with Tivoli systems management technology.
