NetEx Inc. will soon add support for Microsoft’s Hyper-V server virtualization software to its HyperIP WAN acceleration software. The Minneapolis company said support will be added in the next release of HyperIP this quarter. HyperIP optimizes long-distance data movement for more than a dozen virtual machine management applications. The first Hyper-V capable version of HyperIP will support Microsoft’s Live Migration feature, enabling the movement of operating virtual machines from one Hyper-V physical host to another without any disruption of service or perceived downtime, the company said. “Having a presence in both the Hyper-V and VMware camps has NetEx ideally positioned for the future of server virtualization,” said Robert MacIntyre, NetEx's vice-president of business development and marketing. NetEx claims HyperIP– which is sold as either a plug and play appliance or software-only model — supports long-distance data transfers at up to 800 Mb/s. No pricing was announced. However, HyperIP for VMware WAN optimization software has a list price of US$2,000.
