SAN JOSE, CA June 21, 2012 - Infineta Systems, a leading provider of WAN optimization solutions for Big Traffic workflows, announced today its membership in the NetApp Alliance Partner Program. Infineta's solutions will enable NetApp customers to speed up SnapMirror®-based replication and SnapVault-based backup/recovery workflows by up to 85%, significantly reduce WAN bandwidth usage and make use of cost-effective WAN alternatives (e.g. MPLS) for overall OpEx reduction.
Infineta's Data Mobility Switch (DMS) is the only WAN optimization system that scales to multi-Gigabit speeds, making it the ideal acceleration choice for next-generation data protection projects. The deduplication feature available with the NetApp Data ONTAP® operating architecture is complemented by the data reduction benefits delivered by the DMS, further reducing the WAN traffic footprint by as much as 85%. Additionally, customers can protect their critical SnapMirror and SnapVault traffic from the adverse impacts of WAN congestion and loss through the special-purpose, highly tuned TCP optimization features available on the DMS, enabling them to not only extend data protection workflows to longer distances, but also make use of shared WANs, e.g. MPLS and IP-VPN.

"With enterprise data volumes growing at a staggering pace, enterprises are hard-pressed to keep up with growing WAN bandwidth requirements to meet their replication and backup needs," said Haseeb Budhani, Chief Product Officer for Infineta Systems. "Upgrading WAN bandwidth is only a temporary solution to a growing problem, and comes at a high price with diminishing returns. "We are excited to be working with NetApp to deliver a reliable way for customers to drive five times more replication and backup traffic over their existing WANs, and enable them to drive multi-Gigabit storage traffic over shared WANs, such as for MPLS."
