Trend Debuts Security for VMware’s vCloud
Trend Micro Inc., a long-time VMware security partner, announced Deep Security, a solution for VMware's vCloud Hybrid Service that enables customers to move on-premises or private cloud deployment to the public cloud. Designed to reduce cost and complexity, Deep Security features a platform for security controls and policies managed across physical, virtual and cloud environments. The service allows customers to fulfill their security responsibilities by extending on-premises security to their cloud workloads. By leveraging Deep Security's interoperability with VMware vCloud Director and other VMware technologies, administrators can automatically detect virtual machines and apply context-based policies to them for consistent security across the data center and into the public cloud. Features include virtual patching, which shield the VMs from vulnerabilities, decreasing risk and reducing patch management overhead.
New Multi-Tenancy and open Stack Support From Tonido
CodeLathe, a leader in enterprise private cloud, launched Tonido FileCloud 6.0, adding multi-tenancy, Amazon S3 and OpenStack storage support to its Enterprise File Sync and Sharing solution. The new multi-tenancy feature allows Managed Service Providers to serve multiple customers using single instance of FileCloud; the addition of Amazon S3 and OpenStack storage support provides infinite file storage scalability. Features include role-based access control and ability to add multiple administrators for each site/tenant; and APIs to manage tenants and users enabling third party integration. FileCloud offers broad cross-platform support with file-sync apps for Windows, Mac and Linux, and mobile apps for all the major mobile platforms.
Fujitsu Debuts Unified Backup, Archive Appliance
Fujitsu announced enhancements for its Storage ETERNUS CS8000 to help organizations achieve higher efficiency and greater availability in their backup and archive environments. The latest version includes an automated, integrated backup for archive and second-tier file storage data, making it easier to protect info without additional backup software. New infrastructure components extend market-leading performance levels to more than 150 TB/h, while reducing costs. Large enterprises and mid-range customers can achieve higher overall performance with faster connections to meet their challenging business requirements. Its scale-out architecture – robustly extending from 7 TB to 22.2 PB – helps organizations to deal with enormous data growth, as there is no need to buy an additional backup storage system if the backup amount grows.
