NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, networking and communications solutions, today announced new enhancements to its HYDRAstor OpenStorage Suite for Symantec NetBackup by adding Deduped Transfer source side deduplication and WAN-optimized Auto Image Replication (AIR) for disaster recovery (DR).
The Deduped Transfer feature maximizes backup performance and reduces network bandwidth consumption by pre-processing data streams on the media server to send only unique blocks of data to HYDRAstor. This new feature increases maximum performance of each Hybrid Node by 6x (to more than 40 TB/hr) and maximum system performance by 4x (up to 4.1 PB/hr or 1.1 TB/sec for current-generation HS8-4000 storage system with 165 nodes).
The OpenStorage AIR functionality facilitates automatic DR at remote sites for Symantec NetBackup environments, leveraging HYDRAstor’s RepliGrid WAN-optimized replication technology to send only unique compressed chunks of data to the remote site. OpenStorage AIR replicates critical backups from the primary site to the DR site, with each copy in a different NetBackup domain maintained by an independent NetBackup catalog. The media server at the DR site automatically imports the replicated images and updates its catalog, enabling fast recovery if the primary site is completely lost.
"The PBBA and archive markets continue to exhibit double digit growth rates and require advanced functionality for efficient and scalable capacity optimization for enterprise environments," said Laura DuBois, program vice president, Storage, IDC. "NEC’s HYDRAstor storage system has established itself as an excellent solution for backup and archive workloads, with a scale-out object store architecture that supports modular scalability, high performance, and integrated functionality for enterprise customers."
Deduped Transfer is also available for the previous generation of HYDRAstor nodes: with more than 5x performance improvement up to 19.8 TB/hr per Accelerator Node and maximum system performance by 3x up to 1.1 PB/hr for third-generation HS8-3000 storage systems with 165 nodes.
“With the new Deduped Transfer and Auto Image Replication enhancements, HYDRAstor customers can reduce bandwidth requirements and significantly improve backup process speed and efficiency,” said Gideon Senderov, director of Advanced Storage, NEC Corporation of America. “We will continue to respond to our customers’ needs and maximize the value HYDRAstor solutions deliver to enterprise environments by further pushing the envelope on efficiency and performance and extending HYDRAstor’s lead as the top performance Purpose-Built Backup Appliance (PBBA) solution available in the market today.”
The new Deduped Transfer and Auto Image Replication features are separately licensed features. Deduped Transfer list price will be $30,000 per HS8-4000 Hybrid Node, and Auto Image Replication list price will be $12,000 per HS8-4000 Hybrid Node. Both features will be generally available along with the HYDRAstor 4.2 software release in June 2014.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at di...

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.
