With GeoSynchrony 5.5 Patch 1, we are really excited to announce a major scale up of the MetroPoint topology to 4500 virtual volumes (more than 200% increase!). This enhancement in scale is very much in line with VPLEX product strategy of being focused on the core mission of eliminating planned and unplanned downtime in your environment.

We launched the MetroPoint configuration in 2014 as a unique three site deployment of VPLEX Metro together with RecoverPoint. MetroPoint is more than sum of its parts: VPLEX Metro offers continuous availability over metro distances and RecoverPoint offers continuous remote replication over long distances for disaster recovery. In a MetroPoint topology a single DR site/copy protects both the metro sites. The same DR copy can be used to recover either of the metro sites thereby providing resiliency to entire regional disruptions. Many of VPLEX's largest enterprise customers from Telkom Indonesia to Societe Generale to Dow Corning have protected their continuous availability environment with the long distance DR site protection in a MetroPoint topology.
