The week in storage

Several announcements from SteelEye, 3PAR, Brocade and Thales

SteelEye Technology announced that SteelEye DataKeeper now supports Windows Server R2 and multi-site clusters of Hyper-V, SQL Server, file and print, DHCP servers. DataKeeper is data replication software for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. DataKeeper Cluster Edition allows administrators to build geographically dispersed Hyper-V clusters that do not share storage.

3PAR has rolled out new software features that let customers guard against disasters, while preserving service-level agreements. Synchronous Long Distance Remote Copy, Persistent Cache and RAID MP are designed to work with 3PAR's InServ platform. 3PAR's Remote Copy now supports Synchronous Long Distance replication, a multi-site disaster recovery method that spans extended distances. Persistent Cache is built into the 3PAR InForm operating system and allows organizations to handle both planned and unplanned downtime. It eliminates the performance penalties associated with 'write-through' mode by preserving write caching in the event of a controller node failure by re-mirroring cache to other nodes. RAID-MP allows RAID-6 multi-parity capability for disk drive configurations above 1TB in capacity.

Brocade and Thales on Tuesday announced that they have integrated Thales Encryption Manager for Storage with Brocade's SAN switches. The Brocade Encryption Switch and the Brocade FS8-18 will now be key encryption/key management-enabled with Thales Encryption Manager for Storage (TEMS). TEMS is a ready-to-use appliance that consolidates and automates the management of encryption keys for storage systems. Hitachi Data Systems will be among the first organization to offer the solution in their product line.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
