HyperIP Series – You Asked About Enabling Centralized Remote Backup

Posted by Marketing

A successful remote backup and recovery process depends on the right backup applications, the right management of those apps, and the network to support it. How can HyperIP WAN optimization virtual appliance enable this? Let’s look at a typical remote backup solution consisting of remote servers, residing in a branch, and a central repository of data for the backups, residing in a data center. These servers, virtualized in most cases, require remote backups to occur in a given backup window for each server. These backups are slave to the size of the WAN bandwidth to/from the branch. To reduce the backup windows or at worst, meet them, the WAN overhead has to be eliminated.

Typically, TCP overhead limits actual application throughput over these WAN links. The table below shows anticipated application throughput with HyperIP. Compare this to what you get now and the value proposition of HyperIP becomes evident.

HyperIP mitigates the effects of packet loss, latency, and out of order packets to more effectively drive near wire speed of the WAN link (~95%). Then, if needed, block-level compression, a feature of HyperIP, is applied to further reduce the amount of data traveling over the WAN link, dramatically increasing application throughput. This effectively turns the WAN into LAN-like performance from the backup client to the backup server destination.
