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.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
