NetEx Promotes Application Acceleration to Managed Service Providers
NetEx, which specializes in high speed data transport over TCP, plans to offer its data transport acceleration technologies to managed service providers, according to a press release from the company. NetEx’s solution, called HyperIP Data Transport, provides application acceleration for remote data replication and large file transfer requirements.
This sounds like part of a larger managed services trend I’ve been hearing about lately. Cisco Systems, for instance, plans to aggressively promote its Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) to managed service providers in 2009. And niche companies like F5 Networks have carved out strong positions promoting application acceleration technology.
NetEx was formed in 1999 as a spin-off of Storage Technology Corporation (StorageTek).
