Companies Worldwide Deploy Silver Peak with Dell EqualLogic to Speed Offsite Replication

(Dell Storage Forum) Silver Peak Systems, the leader in accelerating data over distance, today announced that more customers throughout North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific are deploying Silver Peak virtual products with Dell EqualLogic storage solutions to accelerate offsite replication workloads. By replicating data faster over existing networks, customers can exceed recovery point objectives (RPO) while minimizing infrastructure costs.

In North America, companies like Deere Credit Union, Dickinson Wright, Focus Technologies, Hawkins, National Seating and Sun East Federal Credit Union rely on Silver Peak with Dell EqualLogic to accelerate replication processes over distance. In EMEA, companies like Aramex and ZLTO have dramatically reduced the amount of time it takes to move large volumes of data over constrained networks. In Asia Pacific, companies like Deswik Mining achieve RPOs over longer distances using less bandwidth.

“The WAN link between our two locations did not provide enough capacity to support rapid synchronization of all our volumes,” said Bart Haans, ICT manager for ZLTO, an association that handles national relations for over 18,000 farmers across the Netherlands. “We were able to quickly install Silver Peak and simply redirect the traffic between our EqualLogic arrays through the Silver Peak virtual appliances. No changes to the network were required, and we were up-and-running accelerating traffic in just a few hours.”

Dell EqualLogic Auto-Replication can periodically replicate data from primary sites to designated disaster recovery sites with Silver Peak VXOA software optimizing the data movement and providing granular visibility and control over the traffic. This helps ensure business continuity in the event of an outage.

In lab testing, Silver Peak demonstrated performance gains of up to 15x for replication throughput, while real-world deployments have realized up to 20x with up to 90% WAN bandwidth reduction.

“Through a combination of real-time optimization techniques, Silver Peak enabled us to reduce our replication times from 24 hours to 8 hours over our existing WAN infrastructure,” said Tom Robertson, CTO at Charter Bank. “Silver Peak’s appliances have become critical to our disaster recovery processes, enabling us to replicate all of our data to a secure offsite location in a fast, reliable, and cost effective manner.”

“As a Dell global preferred partner, we are excited to see more customers reaping the benefits of a Silver Peak-accelerated Dell EqualLogic deployment,” said Marc Trimuschat, vice president of alliances and the Dell relationship for Silver Peak. “Our software-based solutions enable quick and easy deployment of WAN acceleration from anywhere in the world, and with our free self-service trials directly from our website, anyone can start optimizing their disaster recovery deployments immediately.”

Availability and Free Trial

Dell EqualLogic customers can obtain a free 90-day trial of Silver Peak WAN optimization by visiting: http://www.silver-peak.com/EqualLogic. Pricing starts at $7,995 for two Silver Peak virtual machines. Silver Peak VXOA allows anyone to choose from the industry’s broadest portfolio of virtual WAN optimization appliances running on the broadest range of hypervisors, including VMware vSphere, Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V, and KVM.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
