Symmetrix 8000 enterprise storage family

EMC Corporation introduces the Symmetrix 8000 enterprise storage family. The three models in the family are Symmetrix 8830, 8530 and 8230. They feature the Symmetrix MOSAIC architecture, which is the foundation of the storage platform.

Symmetrix 8830 stores upto 69.5 TB in a single 17.5 square foot Symmetrix cabinet. It offers enterprise consolidation with increased cache, connectivity and processing power. Symmetrix 8530 provides upto 17.4 TB of capacity in a 6 square-foot single bay Symmetrix cabinet. Symmetrix 8230 offers upto 3.5 TB of capacity and flexible connectivity options.

The following products can be plugged in with the Symmetrix 8000 enterprise storage family products.

The EMC Enginuity Operating Environment version 5568 can be added to support 64 GB global cache and upto 8000 Symmetrix addresses. A Symmetrix Global Cache Directory with CacheStorm technology reduces the contention for shared cache memory by partitioning the global cache memory into 16 memory regions, delivering an 'offload engine' that frees incoming channels and cache, and implementing an optimizing engine.

A 12-port fibre channel director code named 'Spider' provides open systems connectivity to 96 host connections in a single Symmetrix unit. Customers needing a large number of server connections but not a SAN (Storage Area Network) can use the channel director. A 4-port fibre channel director is also designed for customers who use fewer servers but require high availability and direct attachment to storage systems.

In a mainframe environment, GDPSO (Geographically Dispersed Parallel SysplexO) support enables customers to implement IBM's proprietary mainframe clustering solution using Symmetrix and SRDF (Symmetrix Remote Data Facility).

PGP wireless for Windows CE

PGP security, a division of Network Associates, the creators of the popular Mcafee's anti-virus introduced PGP wireless for Microsoft Windows CE. By doing so, the company has extended its existing PGP wireless product line that initially used to support only Palm OS-based devices.

PGP wireless provides security for data in storage and during synchronization on growing computing platforms. An encryption-based solution protects the information stored on the handheld devices allowing only the user with appropriate rights to access data. According to the company, the product also furnishes a privacy solution to exchange data securely between a broad range of devices like handhelds and mainframes.

The user can decrypt and verify e-mail messages or files on their handhelds without worrying about tampering. One can also encrypt, sign, and encrypt and sign any email message or file.

PGP wireless for Windows CE lets you beam any public key on your handheld to another PGP wireless for Windows CE user. Conversely, you can receive a public key via beaming from another PGP wireless for Windows CE user.

The user can wipe any file from the handheld. Wiped files cannot be recovered by any means, thus ensuring that sensitive data is safe from prying eyes.

Epo 2.0—Epolicy Orchestrator

Having just an anti-virus protection solution is not enough, one also needs to manage the solution effectively. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator claims to be one of the first tools for managing anti-virus protection tools. With the help of this tool administrators can keep an update on their protection, manage policies and generate detailed reports as and when required. Not only that, Virus Scan and Net Shield can be deployed to all workstations and servers in the organization. It is easy to deploy as it is a single server model and all the operations can be handled by using a remote console from anywhere within the organization. You need not be connected to the corporate network; an Internet connection will allow the agent and the server to communicate. An important feature of the tool is the ability to identify which network segment is most frequently infected and generate reports to pinpoint entry points, as also identify a pattern of propagation.

The centralized policy configuration save administrators time in deploying corporate anti-virus policies company wide by nullifying the need to physically visit each machine. It also eliminates the chance of virus infection due to inadequate configuration of anti-virus software. With the help of centralized policy enforcement, monitoring of the entire network becomes easier. The tool can manage up to 100,000 nodes thus requiring only one server to manage the entire enterprise. It also compares infections and cleanings year on year across all desktops, servers, GroupWare and gateway machines. Epolicy

configures common policies to all machines in the organization and unique policies to specific groups and end-user machines.
