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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
