NetEx and VMware Inc. have announced the availability of a free annual subscription for the HyperIP virtual appliance software through the VMware Virtual Appliance Marketplace (VAM). The 2Mb/s HyperIP (VM edition), is a virtual appliance that improves the performance of moving large amounts of data across a WAN, reports Data Storage Connection. Qualified VAM users of replication and backup applications are eligible for a maximum of two free annual subscriptions.
“’Organizations looking to boost the performance of their VMware infrastructure will find that HyperIP is an ideal way to overcome the challenges of network conditions, such as packet loss, latency and jitter, that are inherently found in virtualization and cloud computing environments,’ said Robert MacIntyre, NetEx Vice President of Business Development and Marketing. ‘We have worked closely for years with VMware as a member of its Technology Alliance Partner Program as well as being certified with VMware Ready status and have successfully accelerated data through multiple flavors of virtual platforms for a number of years. We are glad to be able to extend this promotion to VAM users looking to supercharge data transfers within their own VM environments.’”
