An enterprise online gaming company uses HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance for global replication acceleration. The company started off using the HyperIP appliance, liked it so much that they migrated to the virtual version of HyperIP which in their environment runs on VMware ESXi. For them, the HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance solution is very cost effective, very easy to implement and provides the ability to scale with software as transfer requirements increase. Everybody likes a little investment protection, right?
So what problem was this company trying to solve? Like many other global enterprises they were challenged with their disaster recovery processes. They used the public internet to move terabytes of data during replication but found it increasingly difficult to meet recovery time objectives as mandated by their disaster recovery plans. The public internet was much less expensive than dedicated circuits but was hampered by latency, packet loss and out of order issues. The company also wanted to reduce their transfer windows, and at the same time deliver more efficient use of current WAN resources, and control bandwidth costs.
The customer uses EMC SRDF/A between sites and added Oracle DataGuard as a second replication application between sites. They tested Oracle DataGuard without informing anyone from NetEx and as expected, HyperIP worked like a charm. The point is, it is pretty easy to add additional applications to operate with HyperIP.
Did the customer try any other WAN Optimization solutions? Yes they tried Riverbed Steelhead appliances but decided to keep using HyperIP because of the significant performance advantage and the cost effectiveness of the software solution.
At the end of the day HyperIP helped this online gaming customer reduce replication, backups and migrations time frames by as much as 60%. The fact that HyperIP was a VMware Ready solution is extremely important to this customer. With a HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance solution the customer is happy with the ease of deployment, lost cost, ease of support and maintenance, ease of integration into their existing virtual environment, including the speed of deployment of newly created virtual machines.
This customer is very satisfied with their HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance solution.
