Continuity Software enhances business continuity management software

QLogic claims FCoE leadership, Druva adds deduplication, Symantec enhances Backup Exec

Continuity Software, a start-up that specializes in configuration drift for disaster recovery and business continuity environments, on Monday of this week announced RecoverGuard 5.2. 

The software now includes the Private Cloud Advisor, which alerts customers to changes in virtualized private cloud environments, and support for HP's XP storage platform. The company says that as virtual machine environments proliferate in the data center, that information is further abstracted from its physical surroundings. RecoverGuard 5.2 looks at how changes to the physical server and storage environment at both the host and target site will impact the disaster recovery process.

The Dell'Oro Group found in the second quarter of 2010 that QLogic leads the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) market with a 58% market share and that FCoE will be the primary alternative to Fibre Channel going forward. Approximately 96,000 FCoE ports shipped in 2009.

Druva Software recently announced a new version of its inSync data backup product for laptops. InSync version 4.0 now includes application aware deduplicaion. The source-based deduplication uses a new storage engine that supports as much as 16TB of deduplicated storage per server. InSync uses the NoSQL Oracle Berkley Database to store metadata and has added a WAN optimization engine and new Web-based console.

And finally, Symantec last Wednesday announced an updated Backup Exec 2010 that has improved wizards to reduce installation time and new platform support. Backup Exec 2010 now supports Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Exchange 2010 SP1, SQL 2008 R2, Mac OS X 10.6, VMware vSphere 4.1 and enhanced NDMP support. It also contains a Product Recommendation Engine that alerts customer of gaps in their backup strategies for Exchange, SharePoint, Hyper-V and Active Directory.
