Silver Peak today announced that its data acceleration software has been VSPEX® Lab Validated as part of an EMC® VSPEX solution to address the challenges customers face when replicating data over long distances. Silver Peak for VSPEX combines wide area network (WAN) optimization software with virtual EMC RecoverPoint® to enable customers to deploy a proven infrastructure faster, without the risk and complexity of the traditional build-your-own approach.
EMC VSPEX provides customers the power to choose the hypervisor, server, and network technology they prefer to build and deploy private cloud and end user computing solutions based on EMC’s unified storage, backup and recovery solutions. Silver Peak’s software layers on top of the VSPEX with EMC RecoverPoint to solve the challenges of distance, bandwidth and packet loss when replicating data over the WAN. This enables customers to maximize available bandwidth for data protection, replicate more data in less time, and easily meet their recovery point objectives (RPOs).
“EMC VSPEX is a simple, efficient, and flexible solution optimized for the most popular use cases for customers moving to cloud computing,” said Gary Garcia, Director Global Solutions Marketing, VSPEX, EMC Corporation. “Silver Peak’s software-defined approach to data acceleration enables customers to further reduce their WAN bandwidth requirements and networking costs while taking advantage of EMC RecoverPoint replication over any distance.”
When combined with VSPEX for EMC RecoverPoint, Silver Peak and EMC enable customers to meet their RPOs regardless of WAN bandwidth, distance to remote locations, or quality of WAN (i.e. Internet VPN). Silver Peak software provides the following advantages when deployed as part of a VSPEX with RecoverPoint solution:
- Extend replication distance by reducing the impact of WAN latency. With Silver Peak and VSPEX for RecoverPoint, source/target arrays can be placed anywhere, ensuring business needs are not hampered by network limitations.
- Fix WAN quality issues like dropped and out-of-order packets so replication can have consistent performance across low cost WANs, like MPLS and Internet VPNs rather than expensive, dedicated WAN links.
- Prioritize replication traffic and guarantee bandwidth, so that voice, video, data and replication traffic can all coexist on one converged network. Silver Peak also complements EMC RecoverPoint with traffic shaping techniques that guarantee available bandwidth for replication traffic.
- Maximize available bandwidth through byte-level deduplication and compression: Silver Peak complements the deduplication in RecoverPoint by looking for recurring data patterns within data blocks and matching patterns across all applications sharing the WAN – not just RecoverPoint data.
- Secure replication data in transit using Accelerated IPsec encryption.
- Simplify deployment and troubleshooting with real-time dashboards that collect and display network conditions and monitor the performance of EMC replication traffic over the WAN.
- Take the guesswork out of sizing and deploying Silver Peak with EMC VNX® and EMC RecoverPoint through VSPEX proven architecture.
“Many EMC customers are already experiencing the benefits of Silver Peak replication acceleration,” said Marc Trimuschat, VP of alliances, Silver Peak. “Building on our long-standing strategic relationship with EMC, we are excited to offer this VSPEX Lab Validated solution that harnesses Silver Peak’s software-defined data acceleration and combines it with virtual EMC RecoverPoint and VNX storage in an easy to deploy VSPEX solution.”

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
