New Sepaton Appliance Supports Multiple Backup Apps

Sepaton has unveiled its S2100-ES3 series 2925 purpose-built backup appliance with version 7.1 software that supports a variety of popular enterprise backup applications, as well as the ability to back up and deduplicate data using Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage over Fibre Channel. Enterprises can back up NetBackup OST using 8-Gbit Fibre Channel, 1-Gbit Ethernet or 10-Gbit Ethernet protocols, in addition to the existing IP connectivity.

The company has also partnered with Gresham and qualified Gresham’s EDT v10 software with the S2100-ES3 and its version 7.1 software to allow IBM Tivoli Storage Manager customers to automate key virtual tape implementation processes. Gresham EDT enables TSM users to take advantage of Sepaton S2100-ES3 grid scalability by allowing new tape devices and media to be added to TSM without disruption to TSM operations. Sepaton also extended support for KMIP compliant enterprise key managers with qualification of SafeNet KeySecure version 6.3 EKM.

Sepaton S2100-ES3 with version 7.1 software is available now. Pricing for the S2100-ES3 Series 2925 starts at $355,000.

Kemp Gets UCS Certified

Kemp Technologies has released its LoadMaster Operating System Software (LMOS) for Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS). LMOS for UCS is Cisco Interoperability Validation Testing Certified and runs natively within the UCS fabric without requiring a server virtualization hypervisor. Cisco customers can install Kemp’s high-performance LMOS on any Cisco UCS server to improve application performance and reduce network traffic congestion. It can be installed on a B-series or C-series UCS server as a "host" ADC operating system, and because it operates natively within the UCS fabric, the LoadMaster decreases application latency and allows for high-speed communications between server workloads. It also offers Layer 4 and 7 server load balancing, SSL offload and acceleration, data caching and compression, as well as Layer 7 intrusion prevention and security features, including pre-authorization, single sign-on and persistent logging.

EMC Increases Syncplicity Security

EMC has added new features to its Syncplicity enterprise file sync and share tool to improve usability and security while providing IT departments with more control. Administrators have more visibility into file sharing with enterprise-wide password policies and expiration periods, as well as audit reporting, so they can better control content residing in unmanaged locations such as email attachments, local desktop folders and consumer cloud services.

Other administrator features in Syncplicity include federated identity management through Active Directory integration with OneLogin and Ping Identity for single sign-on and automated user provisioning. There also is support for BYOD environments through Good Dynamics MDM, which allows data to reside in a FIPS-compliant container on the mobile device while enabling IT to enforce policies such as applying application passcodes, device restrictions and file actions to an approved set of third-party apps in the Good ecosystem.

Meanwhile, end users can now send large files to internal and external recipients directly from their local machine by right clicking on a file using Syncplicity Secure Send, which generates a unique link with optional security features such as adding passwords, restricting access and tracking downloads.
