Using Exinda to Help Improve Equallogic Replication – Setup

We’ve recently undertaken a project that involves replication between Equallogic iSCSI SANs. Using Exinda appliances, the objective is to use acceleration (WAN memory) to improve replication  performance, whilst using shaping to ensure that other business critical applications get priority during the day. We may look to using schedules to give the replication high priority access […] more »

Using Exinda to Help Improve Equallogic Replication – Results

In a previous post we explained how to configure the Exinda appliance to deal with iSCSI traffic. Having built our policies and enabled acceleration (available with x800 licences, x700 primarily offer visibility and shaping), we are now seeing some fairly impressive reduction stats. For example, the Exinda report for a Saturday shows: Reduction Statistics by […] more »

How Exinda Can Improve the Performance of Backup Exec CPS

Creating the application group is pretty straight forward: (config) # application "CPS" port 1804 protocol tcp (config) # application "CPS" port 1804 protocol udp (config) # application "CPS" port 20481 protocol tcp (config) # application "CPS" port 20483 protocol tcp (config) # application "CPS" port […] more »
