Silver Peak Expands Velocity Solution to Speed Dell Compellent Offsite Replication

Dell Storage ForumSilver Peak Systems, the leader in accelerating data over distance, today announced that its Silver Peak Velocity solution for replication acceleration has been expanded to include Dell Compellent Remote Instant Replay™ technology. Silver Peak Velocity allows storage administrators to accelerate their offsite replication workloads quickly and easily. Starting at just $15,995, Silver Peak Velocity software makes replication acceleration affordable for all Dell Compellent environments.

When the Silver Peak Velocity solution is combined with Dell Compellent Remote Instant Replay technology for replication, companies can protect up to 30x more data over existing networks, reducing replication times from hours to minutes without having to invest in expensive infrastructure upgrades. This minimizes bandwidth expenditures and helps storage administrators meet their most stringent recovery point objectives (RPO).

Silver Peak Velocity leverages Silver Peak’s Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) to overcome common network challenges that hamper offsite replication, including limited WAN bandwidth, distance and network quality. With Silver Peak’s unique storage forwarding method of deployment, the Velocity solution makes replication acceleration easy for any storage administrator. Deployment takes less than 20 minutes and can be done completely from the storage administrator’s domain—no network configuration changes are required. Administrators simply download and install Silver Peak software in the data center and disaster recovery sites, point the Dell Compellent arrays to Silver Peak, and in minutes start accelerating replication traffic.

Proven Technology

In lab testing, the combined solution delivers 6x to 30x better replication performance on average over un-optimized replication environments. For example, on a 155 megabit-per-second (Mbps) shared network between Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas (40 milliseconds of latency), the time required to replicate a 20 GB dataset was reduced from 1.3 hours to 3 minutes.

“Silver Peak is expanding its status as a Dell global preferred partner for WAN optimization by giving Dell Compellent users unprecedented replication performance in an easy-to-deploy, cost-effective bundle,” said Marc Trimuschat, vice president of alliances and the Dell relationship for Silver Peak. “By deploying Silver Peak Velocity for Dell Compellent, enterprises can easily meet their RPOs, lower disaster recovery costs, and extend distances between replication sites.”

Real-World Benefits

A US-based engineering consulting company is using Dell Compellent Remote Instant Replay and Silver Peak to replicate 200 GB of data between Texas and Maryland. Originally, the company was only getting 1.1 GB/hr of replication throughput due to the long distance and low-quality WAN connection. With the combined Silver Peak and Dell Compellent solution, this company is realizing a 25x performance improvement, having reduced replication times from 180 hours to less than seven hours—well within the company’s 12-hour RPO.

Similarly, Denali Alaskan Federal Credit Union (Denali) improved replication performance by over 66 percent with Silver Peak and Dell Compellent Remote Instant Replay. Prior to deploying the joint solution, replication of a 50 GB dataset between Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska was taking 11 hours. After deploying Silver Peak, replication times were reduced to less than five hours.

“Silver Peak’s software is really simple to setup,” says Travis Rupp, associate vice president of project management in IT for Denali. “We met our recovery point objectives without doing any special tweaks to the network or datasets, which really makes Silver Peak stand out.”

Availability and Pricing

Silver Peak Velocity for Dell Compellent is available today. Pricing for the Silver Peak Velocity solution is $15,995 for a one-year subscription, which includes licenses for two Silver Peak Velocity virtual machines and full support. Perpetual pricing options are also available. Each Silver Peak Velocity appliance supports up to 300 GB/hr of replication throughput, making it ideal for most Dell Compellent replication environments.
