The A-to-Z of VMware suitors

Why virtually all storage vendors are so keen

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Promise

Promise Technology says its VessRAID series storage system is now commercially available in the Americas and is VMware-Certified.

VessRAID is for small and medium businesses and has power-saving and manageability features. GreenRAID is an array spin-down feature which allows the system to power-on from standby mode to run user-scheduled tasks such as backups and archives.

As the task completes, the system goes into standby until the next scheduled task. Promise promises annual cost savings of up to 70 per cent over competitive solutions.

A One-Plug-Auto-Service (OPAS) reduces the time spent on conventional administration tasks. By plugging in a supported USB flash drive into VessRAID’s USB port, users can automatically download system service reports, as well as perform advanced functions like firmware upgrades and configuration script installation - a natty feature.

The Promise VessRAID series is currently available through distribution and pricing starts at $2,099 for an 8-bay system and ranges to $3,099 for a 16-bay system. A fully-populated 16-bay subsystem costs less than 26 cents/GB, using enterprise-class, 7200 RPM, 2TB hard disk drives.

Symantec

Symantec has achieved VMware Ready Data Protection status, with successful integration of Backup Exec, NetBackup and NetBackup PureDisk with VMware vSphere 4. It says Backup Exec and NetBackup speed the backup and recovery of information stored on virtual machines. Its software technology enables Backup Exec and NetBackup to leverage a single pass image backup of a guest virtual machine "in order to store backup information once and recover anything - including the entire virtual machine, individual virtual disk files, as well as individual files and folders inside virtual disk files."

This, Symantec says, is a unique capability and results in up to a 50 per cent reduct technology, currently in NetBackup and scheduled to be available in Backup Exec later this year. ®
