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.

Here is a brief success story about a Financial Services Company that uses HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance to optimize their Veeam Backup & Replication.

The company uses a DS3 circuit between data centers and carves out an 8 Mb MPLS circuit for replication and SQL log file transfers. Packet loss and excessive latency was causing poor application performance.

From a high level standpoint, they wanted to improve Veeam Backup & Replication performance, reduce bandwidth costs by using their existing WAN more efficiently, and provide a disaster recovery program that they could rely upon.

HyperIP was downloaded from the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace (VAM) and installed on two existing VMware servers. In a very short period of time the customer’s IT architect installed HyperIP  and shortly thereafter was optimizing the Veeam Backup & Replication. Citrix WANscaler was also tested but the customer selected HyperIP for a variety of reasons:

Using a virtual infrastructure and virtual appliance provided ease of deployment, low cost of deployment, ease of integration into the existing infrastructure and the speed of deployment for newly created virtual machines.

For this customer it was extremely important that HyperIP was certified as VMware Ready versus other products. Customer Quotation – IT Infrastructure engineer:

“HyperIP did what I needed it to do at a fraction of the cost of the competition. Ease of implementation, good documentation, and pleasant experiences with support. HyperIP reduced the time to replicate VMware VMs by more than 80% while using less bandwidth. It was easy to implement due to good documentation and responsive tech support. The cost of increasing bandwidth was significantly higher than the cost of HyperIP.”

So with HyperIP and Veeam Backup & Replication this company has a replication (disaster recovery) solution they are happy with, are getting better WAN throughput and performance and are reducing costs by leveraging their existing infrastructure.

HyperIP WAN Optimization Virtual Appliance Solves Key Network Issues for Dell EqualLogic Replication

Posted by Marketing

A customer was recently experiencing slow replication of their databases using a Dell EqualLogic Replication application from their iSCSI SAN. They were concerned about replication windows so decided to research performance on the Dell website. In their investigation they found the following document on the Dell website.

Using Dell EqualLogic Auto Replication

This document explains use case scenarios and various configuration issues of Dell EqualLogic Replication in a typical DR scenario. A couple of the main network considerations when implementing Dell EqualLogic Auto Replication should be bandwidth and latency of the circuit. In high latency connections, replication will still work, but allow more time to complete. This is sound advice. From our experience, packet loss can also have a huge impact on application throughput.

HyperIP WAN Optimization virtual appliance, when configured with EqualLogic Replication, can reduce bandwidth requirements for replication by over 50% while maintaining high throughput. This brings the windows for replication into minutes instead of hours, allowing for the ease of testing the recovery plan, as well as recovering a node, server, cluster, or the entire site’s data volumes after a true disaster.

Simply, your current benchmark or replication assessment must take into consideration the average available bandwidth on a link with any packet loss or latency can be reduced to 40%-60%. HyperIP accelerates applications over WANs by time of day, to nearly 95% utilization. With a combination of block level compression, latency and packet loss mitigation, HyperIP can then improve EqualLogic replication throughput by 3X-6X .
