Adaptec has introduced external storage subsystems Adaptec DuraStor 7320SS (Fiber Channel-to-SCSI subsystem) and DuraStor 6320SS (SCSI-to-SCSI external storage subsystem). The products feature storage management, security, and protection for Storage Area Networks (SANs). Adaptec DuraStor 7320SS features Logical Unit Number (LUN) zoning for SAN security and manageability. LUN zoning allows organizations to easily allocate storage for specific applications and servers while preventing overwrites.

Features: DuraStor's storage networking simplifies storage management and enable customers to improve disk utilization through consolidation. Both solutions consist of a RAID controller appliance and an enclosure with 12 hot-swappable one-inch drive bays to provide up to 1.7 TB of storage. With the addition of three 12-bay drive enclosures, the Adaptec DuraStor 7320SS scales to 7 TB of storage capacity.

Both subsystems are 2U appliances, enabling high-density rack mounting or pedestal use, and both include redundant, hot-swappable fans and power supplies to ensure maximum uptime. Both feature Adaptec's Storage Manager Pro software.

Secure Internet access

Rendezvous On Chip (I) Pvt Ltd launched iAccess Routers, which eliminate the need of proxy servers for sharing one Internet account simultaneously by multiple users. These routers are easy to setup and provide the flexibility and scalability to support a wide range of internetworking access mechanism like Analog dial-up, ISDN, Cable, DSL, and leased line.

Features: The Virtual Private Network (VPN) uses Data Encryption Standard (DES) and 3DES security for encryption of data. As the public Internet is not secure to share data with remote tele-commuting employees and branch offices across geographies, businesses can deploy the iAccess routers with optional VPN capabilities for secured communication.

Comprehensive firewall capabilities prevent various attacks and provide security for corporate networks. A built-in optional mail server and a firewall eliminates the need for another server to host these applications and reduces the system and network administrative costs.
