February 21, 2012 09:00 AMOrganizations remain challenged when it comes to ensuring data is adequately protected and recoverable, even though advances have been made in backup and data protection technology, industry observers say. Among the reasons cited are that data protection processes don't get reviewed frequently enough, there are few SLA requirements, and there is a lack of visibility into the results of data protection activities.
February 13, 2012 09:00 AMSolid-state array pioneer Nimbus Data's new E-Class array system is a sign that solid-state storage is moving from the high-performance fringe to the mainstream of the enterprise data center. Most first-generation, all-solid-state arrays, including Nimbus Data's own S-class, were best suited to targeted applications where high performance with single points of failure was acceptable. The new asset class, like most midrange disk arrays, has a dual-controller design to satisfy my enterprise reliability requirements.
February 02, 2012 11:00 AMCommVault Systems has enhanced Version 9 of its Simpana data management software, which it first announced in October 2010.

The company said the process could take less than half the time of separate processes.
August 17, 2011 07:00 AMThere is a critical need to provide data protection for personal computing devices--notably, desktops and laptops. That protection has tended to be in the form of backup, either locally or over the Internet. While that is useful, there is also a need for safe recovery from logical data protection problems, such as restoring crashed systems to a working state. Rollback Rx, Horizon DataSys’ snapshot software product, is designed to provide that level of data protection.
October 01, 2010 09:04 AMThere seems to be much discussion around backups lately. One of the big issues is if legacy backup platforms stand a chance against new dedicated server virtualization solutions, but what I'd like to discuss in this blog is if the entire backup process itself can be eliminated by the intelligent use of snapshots, replication, compression and data deduplication.
March 24, 2004 02:00 PMDell has unveiled the PowerVault 745N, a network attached storage (NAS) server with 4 terabytes of external SCSI-attached storage for small businesses, corporate workgroups and branch offices.
