Limited bandwidth, high latency, and dropped and out-of-order packets can slow data replication across a WAN to a crawl, or prevent it from happening entirely. Silver Peak's Velocity solution for replication acceleration addresses this to enable more data to be transferred in less time between geographically dispersed locations.
Silver Peak software prevents transfer times from falling behind cycle times and eliminates the need to spend more money on WAN bandwidth to accommodate peak workloads. As a result, the combined NetApp/Silver Peak solution is essential for enterprises with stringent Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
- Meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) – Replicate more data in less time to remote offsite locations.
- Replicate over longer distances - Eliminate distance limitations between source/target devices.
- Improve business continuity – Maintain redundant data center(s) for hot failover.
- Lower disaster recovery costs - Eliminate costly dedicated networks for replication and avoid bandwidth upgrades.
