HP introduces industry-specific service-oriented architectures
HP has developed service-oriented architecture (SOA) packages designed for four industry sectors. The SOAs cater towards the financial services, manufacturing and distribution, network service provider and public sector industries.

HP’s SOA frameworks allow for improved communication and information sharing among customers, partners and colleagues by extracting data from legacy applications. They also provide tested and bundled services to help customers assess, design and accelerate the implementation of applications while reducing operational and maintenance costs.

More information about HP’s SOA solutions is available from the company’s site.

Storage

Sonasoft announces update to its recovery solution for Microsoft Exchange Server
Sonasoft Corp. announced an updated version of SonaSafe for Exchange Server. The update features a number of enhancements including dynamic mailbox backups, enhanced replication and recovery capability.

Sonasoft protects data from hardware and software failures and human errors. The application maintains the redundant, standby server by continually updating the data with that retrieved from the primary system. The standby system can take over instantly in the event of primary system failure. The standby system can be on-site or located at a remote site for protection against natural or man-made disasters.

Currently, the backup of mailboxes over 2GB in PST format on the Exchange Server level is impossible because of the limitation inherited in the Mail Application Programming Interface (MAPI), which generates PST files. Dynamic mailbox backup incorporates automatic splitting of mailboxes with sizes over 2GB. The complete backup of mailboxes has to be taken only once and then only the incremental backups need to be taken, which reduces the need for storage.

Security

Symantec announces integrated antispam for SMTP gateways
Symantec Corp. announced the release of Symantec Mail Security for SMTP 5.0, its integrated antispam, antivirus and content filtering in a single software solution for SMTP gateways. Included in the package is Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam and features from Symantec Mail Security 8200 Series.

Day-zero virus prevention utilizes Symantec’s Probe Network, identifying suspicious attachments that exhibit the qualities of viruses and mass-mailing worms and rerouting them to the new Suspect Virus Quarantine, where they are held until definitions are available. Administrators also have the option of deleting the message, stripping the attachment, generating a notification or performing other actions on a per-recipient basis.

Symantec Mail Security for SMTP 5.0 is scheduled to be available in May.
