Lakeview Technology, a leader in infrastructure software for the information enterprise, and Expand Networks, the leading provider of WAN compression and acceleration appliances announced an OEM agreement under which Lakeview will private label Expand's patented ACCELERATOR solution to enhance Lakeview's High Availability and Disaster Recovery solution offerings. The agreement is part of Expand's "Powered by Expand" strategic OEM initiative. Under the terms of the agreement, Lakeview will market the Expand solution under the brand MIMIX network1 to its customers around the world.
"The Expand technology, is an ideal companion to our MIMIX High Availability management application," said Mark Pittman, vice president of IT at ValueOptions. "We saw peaks of 700% in data acceleration which translates into more efficient data replication and certainly better remote access for our users. Even more impressive was the ability to get 6 Mbps capacity out of our full-utilized 3 Mbps links with a solid three-month payback."
Lakeview is a market leader in information availability and has seen significant demand for WAN optimization from their customers. MIMIX network1 helps organizations effectively utilize bandwidth and manage data and application availability across their enterprise, which translates into faster replication and better data protection at an overall lower cost.
"Customers now have a single source for a complete High Availability and Disaster Recovery solution," said Al Smith, Lakeview Technology director of business development. "MIMIX network1 complements our strategy of offering high value solutions with fast ROI. MIMIX network1 reduces the total cost of ownership for an availability solution because customers can do more with their existing infrastructure and avoid expensive bandwidth additions. This means that more companies can benefit from the protection of High Availability solutions."
"While, Expand's technology has already been proven in many enterprises utilizing high availability solutions, our partnership with Lakeview Technology takes our commitment to the disaster recovery market to the next level," said Ariel Shulman, vice president of business development at Expand Networks. "We worked closely with Lakeview to optimize the Expand technology for MIMIX environments and make installations a breeze"
Customers benefit from MIMIX network1 in many ways. Expand's WAN acceleration effectively increases the capacity of existing WAN pipes used for Mimix data replication by a factor of 5 or more. In addition, by prioritizing High Availability and data replication traffic over the accelerated WAN pipe, they increase their level of data protection.
In addition to support and service from Lakeview, MIMIX network1 customers get the added value of an acceleration solution optimized for MIMIX, the leading High Availability solution for the iSeries. While optimized to work with MIMIX solutions from Lakeview, MIMIX network1 is also compatible with other High Availability providers.
MIMIX network1 is currently available.
