Unitrends has announced the release of a new backup solution, targeted for VMware environments, called VM Backup Essentials (vBE) and designed (and priced) for SMB use cases. The vBE product converges enterprise-grade virtual backup software, ransomware detection, and fully integrated cloud storage options (with WAN acceleration) into a powerful, easy-to-use product that is aggressively priced at $105 per socket per year, with a subscription model, but with a version full options.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.3 has been introduced in Nov 2017 with some minor new features. But now we are quite close to a new release with a lot of new features. The v7.4 Beta for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS seems to be a big milestone if we count the improvements and features:

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.

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).
