We love talking about our customer success stories.
Below is a brief success story about Ovations Food Services. They deliver fresh food and beverages to public assembly facilities throughout the United States and Canada. They specialize in providing food services to stadiums, arenas, convention centers, fairgrounds, expo-centers, auto racing, casinos, performing arts centers and amphitheaters.
With multiple locations in North America, Ovations uses Veeam’s Backup & Replication to replicate integral virtual machines between Philadelphia and Tampa, all over a 20 Mb/s WAN. They replicate approximately 10 GB/s daily however at times were seeing replications take over 15 hours to complete for a single virtual machine. Ovations needed help.
The Veeam Backup & Replication application was experiencing degraded performance due to high latency and packet loss on the WAN. Backup windows were difficult to achieve and the WAN was not used as efficiently as it could. Not the fault of the Veeam application.
So what happened?
Ovations was already a Veeam customer and decided to test the HyperIP Virtual Appliance via a 30 day evaluation from the NetEx website; http://netex.com/eval. HyperIP was implemented in a very short period of time and almost instantly Veeam’s Backup & Replication application throughput improved by 7x. This allowed Ovations to reduce their replication window from 15 hours to 3 hours.
Ovations considered WAN optimization solutions from both Blue Coat & Riverbed, but decided their virtual appliance solutions were too expensive and the virtual machine footprints for these solutions required too many system resources when compared to the thin footprint of the HyperIP.
HyperIP exceeded Ovation’s expectations for their replication requirement. Not only is HyperIP aggregating the transfer of Veeam but other important applications as well. HyperIP is great at shielding applications from network issues that would normally degrade transfer performance and throughput.
Another happy HyperIP customer.
