Infineta Offers Velocity Dedupe Engine
Startup Infineta Systems says it has devised a superior way to increase throughput, scalability and bandwidth capacity for data centers with the Velocity Dedupe Engine.Network infrastructure startup Infineta Systems introduced its groundbreaking system architecture to power a new generation of products to address the urgent need for very high-speed enterprise data center interconnects. At the center of this architecture is Infineta's Velocity Dedupe Engine, a hardware-based data reduction technology designed to increase levels of throughput, scalability and bandwidth capacity for addressing the rise in data center-to-data center traffic. A full lineup of products built around the Velocity Dedupe Engine will be generally available in the second half of 2010, the company said.
The architecture offers distributed processing, with specialized components each dedicated to performing essential pipelined functions that execute millions of packet processing decisions simultaneously, massively parallel design, a non-sequential packet analysis combined with multistage redundancy removal for improved dedupe efficacy. Dedupe is performed in programmable logic, a hardware-based network deduplication that the company said enables sustained high levels of data reduction ratios at any speed.
"We are at the doorstep of a major shift in data center architecture where the demarcation lines separating geographically dispersed data centers are gradually being blurred at the network and the storage layer as customers realize the powerful advantages of an infrastructure where services are portable," said Mornay Van Der Walt, director of technical marketing for VMware. "This type of -IT as-a-service' model depends on a fast, global-scale network of data centers orchestrating and delivering services as if it were one logical, high performance pool. Infineta's technology can complement VMware vSphere to help enable this emerging enterprise data center architecture."
