San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic workflows, today announced that its Infineta Data Mobility Switch (DMS) was selected as a finalist for Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com’s annual Product of the Year award in the network equipment category. Infineta is one of six finalists to be selected by a panel of judges out of hundreds of entries.
Infineta Systems is the first networking company to develop and market commercial WAN optimization systems that accelerate inter-data center WANs running at up to 10Gbps wire speeds. Powered by its Velocity Dedupe Engine™, the Infineta DMS delivers unrivaled levels of throughput and scalability. The DMS serves as a critical building block for enterprises grappling with Big Traffic workflows such as high speed replication and remote backup, and cross-site storage and server virtualization, and Big Data.
With enterprise data sets reaching aggregate volumes in the 100s of terabytes to petabytes, and storage needs doubling every year, there is a dire need for scalable WAN optimization solutions to accelerate the large volumes of data being transferred between data centers.
Unlike other WAN optimization solutions, Infineta’s DMS can reduce traffic footprints at multi-Gigabit speeds while incurring only microseconds of processing latency. The DMS is the only WAN optimization solution capable of supporting the next generation of advanced data center architectures. With the DMS, for example, customers can easily turn a 1Gbps WAN into a virtual 5Gbps link, leading to increased network throughput and guaranteed bandwidth availability. Not only is the DMS able to significantly improve the performance for all Big Traffic workflows traversing enterprise WAN networks, it is also a financially sound investment, with a typical return on investment in a sub-year timeframe.
“We are very proud and honored that Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com’s panel of judges have recognized Infineta’s flagship product, the DMS, and its capabilities,” stated Haseeb Budhani, Vice President of Products at Infineta Systems. “This recognition underscores the leadership approach Infineta has taken in understanding how enterprise IT strategies around data protection, virtualization and Big Data are leading to Big Traffic issues on the WAN, and how next-generation WAN optimization solutions can address these Big Traffic challenges.”
