ORLANDO, Fla. -- FalconStor Software Inc, Symantec Corp., and NetGear Inc. each announced new backup products today at SNW.
FalconStor offers Backup Accelerator for VTL
FalconStor Software Inc. is giving customers the option of creating local-area network (LAN)-free backups with FalconStor's Virtual Tape Library (VTL) software and a new offering called Backup Accelerator. Backup Accelerator software creates a secondary copy of data in a disk pool attached to the VTL so the data can be fed into virtual tape drives without using the CPU of the backup server or production clients to write backups.
Symantec to rebrand DR change management tool
Symantec Corp. will offer Continuity Software's RecoverGuard change management software for disaster recovery (DR) environments, rebranding it as Veritas CommandCentral Disaster Recovery Advisor (DRA). The software, which keeps track of configurations for DR purposes and notifies users of "configuration drift," will be sold and supported by Symantec, and Symantec will do pre-sales DR assessments at customer locations. The two companies are also working on integrating Symantec's Veritas Cluster Server One (VCS One) high-availability software with DRA.
NetGear ships unified storage with cloud backup for SMBs
NetGear Inc. is adding iSCSI block-level access to its ReadyNAS small- and medium-sized business (SMB) storage devices for a new multiprotocol storage system called ReadyNAS NVX. The four-bay desktop device offers redundant ports and nondisruptive capacity expansion, as well as support for cloud-based backups through Amazon partner ElephantDrive Inc.
