NAB 2017: Bay Microsystems Enhances Long-Distance Transfer of Data
Bay Microsystems (Wynn Parlor – Z) has released the first member of its FX-50 next-generation high-speed WAN extension appliance and the enhanced version of its Max Data XchangeTM (MaxDXTM) solution. The products enable movement of large amounts of data in a lossless, timely, and predictable manner and allow access to remote data as if it were local.
The FX Series products replace Bay’s Intelligent Bandwidth Exchange (IBExTM) appliances. The legacy products have been deployed across extreme distances within mission-critical U.S. government and DoD networks since 2006 and were an integral component of Bay’s first-generation MaxDX data solution, which was first commercially adopted by NFL Network.
Combining FX Series with the upgraded capabilities of the MaxDX platform and MaxDX Manager software will enable much greater density of configurable interfaces in a compact form factor, scalable performance from satellite rates to 100 Gbps, resource/performance monitoring, and ease of integration into existing infrastructures.
“With our entry into the commercial markets, our customer prospects and partners repeatedly question our ability to achieve our performance claims. So, when recently challenged by a Tier 1 partner to show Bay’s ability to move 6 TB in less than four hours over several thousand miles, we moved 100 TB in about 23 hours between Maryland and California over a standard 10G link without compressing or otherwise manipulating the source data,” says Harry Carr, CEO/president, Bay Microsystems, adding, “MaxDX’s latest release leverages our next-generation FX-50 product in a tightly integrated, converged compute and storage platform to bring capabilities to virtually any enterprise that have only been available historically with high-performance computing products.”
Bay’s products enable instantaneous access to or transfer of data across regions, countries, and continents resulting in compelling benefits:
- Streamlined distributed workflows
- Elimination of unnecessary data replication
- Real-time access to data in remote and economical locations
- Synchronous and asynchronous data replication for seamless BC/DR
- Maximum utilization of available network links
- More performance from existing infrastructure
- Reduction in deployment time with an intuitive end-user experience
