Meltdown and Spectre are critical vulnerabilities existing in several modern CPU: these hardware bugs allow programs to steal data which is currently processed on the computer. Meltdown and Spectre can affect personal computers, mobile devices, server and several cloud services. Actually, the only way to minimize those security risks is to patch your operating systems or the hypervisor level (if you are using virtual machines).

Veeam Software has announced, during the last Nutanix .NEXT event, an expanded partnership with Nutanix  in which Veeam becomes the Premier Availability solution provider for Nutanix virtualized environments. What does it mean? First that Nutanix adds Veeam as a Strategic Technology Partner within the Nutanix Elevate Alliance Partner Program. But more important that Veeam will deliver support for Nutanix’s Hypervisor, AHV (maybe later this year, more realist in the next year).

This is the last part of a set of posts realized for StarWind blog and focused on the design and implementation of a ROBO infrastructure. See also the original post. Design a ROBO infrastructure. Part 5: Data protection solutions Business continuity aspects In previous posts we have already discuss about several business continuity aspects in ROBO scenarios. For example, a reasonable availability level could be between 99% and 99,99%, but there are some workloads that may require higher level (or other that are not critical at all). But availability could be achieved by a good infrastructure design and […]

Nakivo Backup & Replication v7.1 is out from few weeks and there is already the beta of Nakivo Backup & Replication v7.2! New version with new features:

After two months from the NAKIVO v7.0 release now it’s announced NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.1 with the support of Hyper-V Failover Clusters. Before this version each Hyper-V host was just a “standalone” system (for the backup point of view) with limited VM migration capabilitiles.

In less than two years Cohesity has announced the v1, the v2, the v3 and now the v4 of Cohesity Data Platform, a product designed to consolidate all secondary storage use cases on a unified environment that helps organizations control growing data demands.

After the public beta period, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7 comes out with great features that improve VM backup and recovery, simplify VM backup management, and speed up VM backup and recovery. The new version will add the following key features:

The new version of Vembu BDR Suite v3.7.0 is now Generally Available (GA) with new capabilities. Vembu designed VMware backup protects vSphere and vCenter environments using VMware vStorage APIs (VADP). Users can backup and replicate unlimited VMs from VMware vSphere ESXi hosts without installing any agents inside VMs. Direct Hot-Add and SAN transport mode provides faster data transfer speed with less resource utilization. VMBackup will auto analyze the VMware environment and assigns the appropriate data transfer mode. Backup VMs running in a Hyper-V host without installing agent on individual VMs. Vembu’s proprietary Hyper-V CBT driver […]

Data protection products are evolving faster in those years and regarless of the technologies behind those products (depending mainly on the hystorical era on when the product born) we can found a common set of capabilities and trends. Two main recent trends are basically the primary (and maybe also the secondary) storage native integration and also the (public) cloud integration.

Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) scenario is usually challenging due to some constraints (like limited budget, lack of local IT people, limited IT resources and stuff, …) and some possible risks (like the bandwidth or latency assumptions could be wrong and not enought). But in most companies the solution must provide same enterprise level services, like a right level of high availability, data protection, scalability (maybe not locally, but having more offices with similar solutions, …). In most cases a two nodes solutions with a virtualization level could be enough, but what about the […]
