Storage

Yosemite Technologies releases backup offering
Yosemite Technologies Inc. announced upgrades to its Yosemite Backup product, including increases in baseline disk backup capacity, added Virtual Tape Library options and support for Microsoft’s Data Protection Manager (DPM) and Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).

Users of Backup Standard, for SMBs with fewer than 20 servers, will see their baseline increase to 8TB of disk backup capacity. For users of enterprise-class Backup Advanced, Yosemite offers the choice to expand their 8TB base disk capacity to 16TB, or to upgrade to unlimited capacity from either 8TB or 16TB.

Yosemite’s D2D2Ne (Disk-to-Disk-to-Any) option has added Virtual Tape Library (VTL) capabilities. This ‘iVTL’ option allows users to create a VTL environment with general-purpose disk storage and not proprietary hardware. By embedding the VTL functionality within the backup software itself, users can realize the three-tiered architecture and one-step restore. The D2D2Ne option costs US$699 for both Standard and Advanced users.

MSRPs for capacity upgrades start at US$1699 (from 8TB to 16TB), US$7229 (from 8TB to unlimited capacity) and US$6799 (from 16TB to unlimited capacity).

Infrastructure

TAB offers Aphel DBH2 Series
TAB Canada now offers Aphel Technologies’ DBH2 Rackmount PDU solution.

DBH2 provides 17,200 Watts of power in a 2U chassis. Models are available with either 12 C19 or L6-15R (twistlock) outlets to achieve redundancy. Optional satellite power units are available to support smaller servers and ancillary equipment.

Employing the Easy-Read digital ammeter, users can read the high-resolution color display from as far away as 12 feet or through the enclosure door perforation. And because it supports large servers, DBH2 reduces the number of plenum cables and simplifies installation.
