  • Bringing functionality of Vcinity’s turnkey hardware/software ULT X-1000 and ULT X-1000e products to virtual environments.
  • Throughputs up to 1Gbps per VM or 10Gbps per VM instance with hardware acceleration (FPGA).
  • KVM, VMware ESXi, bare metal, AWS EC2 VM, and AWS F1 versions available for deployments at the end of Q3, 2019. Other versions including Microsoft Hyper-V, Xen will follow later this year.

“We are delighted to offer our new ULT X-1000v software only product to our key partners and customers,” said Russel Davis, COO at Vcinity Inc. “With unprecedented performance and flexibility to access data across distance, Vcinity continues to innovate and give our customers the capability to manage and operate on data in ways not previously possible. In today’s reverse-cloud models, ULT X empowers customers to fully leverage the elastic, scalable compute of the cloud while retaining control of their data, which improves data security and minimizes the costs of data egress.”

  • Transfer of data only when required for transfer-based workflows (e.g., backup, cloud ingress or egress) and certain application scenarios (e.g., AI/analytics)

Cost Savings and Control

  • 50-86% reduction in secondary data copies resulting in substantial cost savings
  • Efficient access for local and remote collaboration ensuring better control and security of valuable data assets
  • Zero data loss (RPO) with near-zero downtime (RTO)

Efficient and Transparent

  • 5-44x faster data replication across any distance without needing any pre-processing
  • 12x improvement in data migration into and out of data centers, colo or multi-clouds
  • No application rewrite – Seamless integration into current automated workflows
  • No client software – Ease of operation and maintenance
  • File shares with industry-standard interfaces – Easy integration into existing IT infrastructures
