Silver Peak Systems, has launched Silver Peak Velocity, which allows storage administrators accelerate their offsite replication workloads.
Silver Peak Velocity will be available for NetApp SnapMirror deployments to provide, on average, 20x faster offsite replication. It will be available for replication products from Dell, EMC, Hitachi Data Systems, and others in the coming months, Silver Peak said in a statement.
Data protection is required by storage administrators to meet recovery point objectives, the company noted. Administrators face the challenges of latency, congestion, and limited network when replication workloads extend beyond datacenters to remote disaster recovery sites over wide area networks (WANs), it added.
Silver Peak Velocity works on Silver Peak’s virtual acceleration open architecture software and storage forwarding, helping reduce ongoing disaster recovery costs by avoiding infrastructure upgrades, and helping companies minimise risk by replicating more data in less time.
The product will offer affordability and simplicity to mid-size enterprises, the company said.
“On the product side, we’ve accelerated the time-to-value for storage admins with a simplified deployment capability, and created a special bundle of Silver Peak software that is downloadable directly via the web and priced at 50% less than comparable solutions,” Silver Peak senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Larry Cormier, said in the statement.
Silver Peak Velocity is priced at $15,995 for a one-year subscription, which includes two Silver Peak VXOA software licenses and full support, the company said.
