EVault 7 Backup Appliances: When Failure is Not an Option

EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), today announced the new EVault® 7 backup appliances, redesigned to more efficiently scale, protect, and recover customers’ ever-growing data stores. EVault 7 Appliances are the only mid-market solution offering quick and easy recovery should there be a failure, with all appliances boasting connectivity to the EVault Cloud. These streamlined appliances are easier on customers’ budgets — they consume 30 percent less power, include all the software needed to capture and protect data, and customers will enjoy extremely competitive promotional pricing until March 29, 2013.

“Mid market customers have long accepted they cannot have a backup and recovery solution that is failproof, scalable and easy to manage within their budget. EVault 7 Appliances are changing the game by giving IT fast, local access to their data, plus offsite protection with a copy in the Cloud, at no-brainer prices,” said Daniel Bankert, EVault’s Vice President of Server Backup & Archiving Products. “We believe we are the only appliance provider offering true failover capability, which is the best way to protect and preserve your data. Most organizations consider their data to be one of their most valuable assets. If failure is not an option for your IT staff, you should be looking at EVault 7 Appliances.”

EVault Appliances are backup and recovery appliances that offer users the benefits of the Cloud ― resilient, off site data protection ― while retaining on site control of their data and operations. The next generation EVault 7 Appliances are purpose built with pre-configured hardware, storage and software designed for simple and efficient Cloud hybrid data protection. Customers have the choice to deploy EVault Plug-n-Protect ― an award-winning, all-in-one appliance with customizable Cloud replication ― or EVault Express Recovery Appliance, which adds a local cache to Cloud backups to speed data recovery. With either appliance, customers enjoy world-class support from EVault, their single point of contact for software, hardware, and storage.

Simple to Manage and Scale. Better for the Bottom Line.

EVault 7 Appliances eliminate the need to purchase backup licenses when customers deploy new servers into the environment. With unlimited agent and application plug-in licensing now included in every appliance, managing a backup and recovery platform is easier than ever. Many models come prepopulated with additional hard drives — up to 24 TB — so scaling to accommodate more data can be as simple as upgrading the license. The redesigned models now have a converged server-storage architecture, resulting in 30 percent lower power consumption. And, with the CPU and storage residing within a single machine, the appliance is easier to manage.

EVault Plug-n-Protect

EVault Plug-n-Protect is an all-in-one backup and recovery appliance consisting of preconfigured hardware, storage, and software for the fastest path to on-premises data protection. Customers can seamlessly deploy their EVault solution with less effort than purchasing the components separately, and they benefit from a single point of contact for their software, hardware, and storage support. EVault Plug-n-Protect comes packaged with 3 TB, 6 TB, or 12 TB of usable capacity. Customers have the option to purchase standalone models for easy replication to the EVault Cloud or as paired machines for private cloud replication.

EVault Express Recovery Appliance

EVault Express Recovery Appliance is a local backup and recovery appliance for EVault SaaS customers that delivers fast, LAN-speed recoveries. The appliance maintains an onsite cache of backup data and automatically replicates all backups offsite to the EVault cloud — making data protection deployment even more resilient. Preconfigured and administered by EVault vault administrators, EVault Express Recovery Appliance enables customers to enjoy the benefits of an onsite vault without needing to manage software or hardware. EVault Express Recovery Appliance models can be purchased with 1 TB, 3 TB, or 6 TB of usable capacity, or they can be purchased and deployed as a virtualized storage appliance.

Special Pricing

For a limited time, EVault is offering introductory promotional pricing for the EVault Plug-n-Protect 6 TB model. Through March 29, 2013, this appliance is available for an MSRP of US$19,995 plus standard support and maintenance. For more information, please contact an EVault partner or www.evault.com.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
