NetEx to Provide Free WAN Optimization Software for CA ARCserve Backup, CA ARCserve D2D Users

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - NetEx®, a leading company providing a WAN optimization virtual appliance solution, today announced that it is offering free WAN optimization software for users of CA ARCserve® Backup and CA ARCserve D2D to accelerate data replication over WANs by addressing the challenges of network conditions such as packet loss, latency and jitter that can negatively affect throughput and performance of backup and recovery at remote and branch office locations or within virtual environments.

This offer entitles CA ARCserve Backup and CA ARCserve D2D product users to free one-year subscriptions of its 2Mb/s HyperIP® WAN Optimization virtual appliance that improves the performance of replication across a WAN. The HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance can be downloaded from the NetEx website at or from the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace. Members of the CA Technologies Data Management Partner Program or resellers who are interested in reselling HyperIP are encouraged to sign up as a NetEx HyperChannel partner by filling out the following application: Become a Partner.

"In today's information-centric, compliance-sensitive enterprises, it is essential for data backups to run without a hitch all the time, every time," said Steve Fairbanks, vice president of Data Management at CA Technologies. "We are glad to partner with NetEx to help ensure that IT organizations can rigorously safeguard these critical backup processes -- even in the event of unexpected network impairments."

Part of the CA ARCserve Family of Products, CA ARCserve Backup features central management, patent-pending data deduplication, infrastructure visualization and reporting that helps users more effectively manage their backup and recovery. CA ARCserve D2D is a disk-based backup product that provides Bare Metal Restore to dissimilar hardware and patent-pending block-level infinite incremental snapshot (I2 technology™) in a single package. HyperIP is a lab-tested solution that accelerates CA ARCserve Backup and CA ARCserve D2D when both latency and packet loss are present.

"CA ARCserve Backup and D2D products manage latency well but will be slowed by TCP when there is latency and packet loss," said Robert MacIntyre, Vice President, Business Development and Marketing at NetEx. "Even a small amount of packet loss can substantially slow down many applications, and is exacerbated by network latency. HyperIP manages packets across the WAN, shielding TCP from packet loss, allowing CA ARCserve Backup and D2D to run at their peak performance on less than premium WANs."

This program will be available through July 2012.

NetEx's award-winning HyperIP WAN optimization virtual appliance is a VMware Ready solution, 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 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 VMware infrastructures.
