T9840C tape drive from StorageTek is the latest version
of StorageTek's T9X40 family of tape drives. StorageTek claims that with the
'fast access' T9840C, users get higher data access speeds, significantly increased
data transfer rates, and double the capacity of T9840A and T9840B. Existing
T9840 users can maximize reuse of T9840 cartridges in the new drive thereby
doubling cartridge capacity.
StorageTek's T9840C has 40 GB/cartridge capacity (uncompressed),
30 Mbps data throughput, and a 12-second average data access time. Equipped
with a native 2 GB Fiber Channel interface, the T9840C attaches directly to
SANs for high-speed connectivity without the need for add-on adapters.
The T9840C also features StorageTek's proprietary VolSafe
advanced WORM (Write-Once-Read-Many) technology designed to support electronic
data storage regulatory mandates. It also features a data channel device that
is claimed to enable higher densities and faster throughput.

that the G2 Firewall and VPN gateway improves manageability and eliminates emergency
security patches without sacrificing performance.
product's tunable architecture covers a range of firewall mechanisms like stateful
inspection, deep packet application filtering, intrusion prevention, secured
servers, Strikeback intrusion detection, and automated response.
Secure Computing claims that since these firewalls
are pre-installed and pre-tuned for ease of installation, they drop seamlessly
into any IP network. The Sidewinder G2 Firewall provides firewall security at
gigabit speeds with integrated high availability. Defining and deployment of
enterprise security policy can be done with a mouse click using the Sidewinder
G2 Enterprise Manager.
Sidewinder G2 Firewall's certified IPSec VPN is claimed

BakBone's NetVault 7.0 is intended for use in NAS-
and SAN-centric storage environments. The product features policy management
and notification to provide data management that makes use of multiple protection
options with various recovery time characteristics.
User level access allows NetVault administrators to
extend control of NetVault to other end users. Granular support allows administrators
to accommodate a wide range of user skill sets, and notification linkage ensures
critical events aler-ting the appropriate personnel. Ad-vanced reporting is
claimed to provide the ability to produce reports on all aspects of NetVault
including job execution, media utilization and system operations. In addition
to the twenty-nine pre-defined reports, users can define their own reports including
correlations from NetVault's data gathering engine.
The product's modular architecture claims to help ensure
data protection goals in two ways. First, it optimizes workloads for customers'
environments. Second, BakBone's modularity means that the NetVault's core and
all of its plug-ins can be developed independently of each other. This aims
to ensure the fastest adaptations for new platforms, OSs, and databases as required
NetVault 7 automatically morphs the backup and recovery
commands and icons for any application it discovers on the network into the
dynamically adaptive GUI. The device also claims to automate device discovery
and configuration across SAN and NAS environments. Client Encryption is also
available as an option that utilizes 128-bit ECB encryption mode for another
layer of data security.

Rittal India has launched its water-cooled server technology,
which is used for cooling CPU's in high-density compact server rack systems.
The manufacturers claim that this new system is designed to offer maximum flexibility,
high safety, scope of zero-error, and ease of installation.
In Rittal's liquid cooled IT racks, water jackets are
fitted on the CPU and heat sinks. These are responsible for the immediate heat
dissipation at the precise point where it occurs. In the system, incoming and
outgoing pipelines are integrated into the enclosure. In order to ensure a specific
supply of liquid, these lines are interconnected with an external, central re-cooling
A Rittal Computer Multi Control module is claimed to
provide additional safety by monitoring the incoming, outgoing, nominal, and
actual water temperatures as well as the flow-rate.
