Molex Cat 6 Real Time Patching System
Molex Premise Networks, a manufacturer of structured
cabling systems, has launched a Category 6 version of its 'Real Time' Patching
System. This intelligent connectivity system offers the ability to manage and
monitor the physical network layer and associated IT hardware. Now available
for Cat 5e and Cat 6 networks, Molex claims the Real Time system is the only
monitoring system of its kind that can be retrofitted to legacy cabling systems,
as well as new installations. This allows users to migrate to intelligent connectivity
management throughout their organizations, regardless of the age and tenure
of their existing infrastructure. The Real Time Patching System comprises intelligent
patch panels, patch cords, cable and physical layer management hardware and
software. It provides real time cabling infrastructure information allowing
IT Managers to monitor moves, adds and changes easily. It also facilitates automated
network mapping and work orders. Molex says the configuration of the system
is simple and the integral self-learning port identification reduces set up
time. Scalability of the system is unlimited and can be managed locally, remotely,
or via Web connection, intended to support multimedia connectivity including
copper, fiber, cross connect and coaxial connections. Additional management
software expands the capability of the system, with modules available to support
Network Asset Management, diagnostics and mapping to MAC address level and,
the facility to use AutoCAD and Visio packages for planning and documentation.

TAPE AUTOMATION LIBRARY
QUANTUM MAKO PX720
Data storage major Quantum Corp. is now offering its
MAKO PX720, an enterprise tape automation library. Quantum said this product
is specifically designed to address backup and archive operations more reliably.
Quantum said MAKO provides management and redundancy
features at no extra cost, to increase reliability and shrink downtimethrough
system monitoring and reduced failures.
The key features of this product are:
- Every MAKO system is equipped with redundant cooling and power systems.
Moreover, advanced library management software is also provided, and performs
enhanced component-level system monitoring to address potential failures before
they occur. The enhanced robotics are engineered to reliably execute more
than three million swaps before failure.
- Flexibility - Customers can add or upgrade options
to modify the library for changing environments. MAKO offers a comprehensive
range of connectivity options including SCSI, Bridged FC, Native FC and gigabit
Ethernet. MAKO automates market-leading half-inch, high performance linear
tape drives to meet customers' needs and will support both DLTtape and LTO
Ultrium tape technologies, including SDLT320, LTO2 and the soon to be available
- Library partitioning - MAKO can consolidate several
backup environments into one library, simplifying backup management and providing
cost savings to the customer. It can be configured to appear as multiple smaller
libraries to consolidate diverse departmental backup environments into a single
- "On-Demand" Growth - MAKO's performance
and capacity is easily configured to meet any customer requirement. Performance
on Demand (PoD), enables customers to increases library performance as needed
by adding modular drive clusters containing up to four tape drives, redundant
fans and power with failover capabilities and built-in management.
Additionally, Capacity on Demand (CoD) is also available
to support growth of library capacity without unnecessary up-front investment.
When requirements grow to exceed the capacity of a single MAKO frame, MAKO's
CrossLink mechanism allows the library to expand to five linked MAKO frames
that are centrally managed to support up to 100 tape drives and up to 3660 LTO2
tapes for a total capacity of 732 TBs native. A single MAKO frame can scale
up to 20 DLTtape or LTO drives.

eTrust Security Command Center
Computer Associates (CA) announced the delivery of
eTrust Security Command Center (eSCC), an enterprise security management solution
that helps organizations mitigate risk by proactively managing the complexities
of their security operations. This solution makes it possible for organizations
to pinpoint and respond to critical security incidents in real-time.
aggregates, correlates and prioritizes the overwhelming quantity of disparate
security data generated across an enterprise, enabling organizations to protect
their information infrastructures with optimal effectiveness and efficiency.
eSCC gathers and integrates critical security data
from CA's eTrust solutions and third-party products, including those offered
by Check Point, Cisco, IBM, Internet Security Systems, McAfee, Microsoft, Nessus,
Netscreen, Nortel, Snort, Symantec, Trend Micro and other companies. It appropriately
prioritizes the most critical potential incidents and applies consistent policies.
The key features of eSCC are:
- Improved security posture awareness through the
identification of vulnerabilities that are often hidden by rising security
data noise levels.
- eSCC helps streamline deployment and integration
with the diverse security data sources found in today's highly heterogeneous
enterprise environments. It integrates with CA's Unicenter to enable organizations
to monitor critical security events in real-time.
- Through its comprehensive monitoring functionality
and advanced reporting capabilities, eSCC helps organizations achieve and
maintain compliance with industry standards (such as BS7799) and government-mandated
security policies and best practices.
- Provides visualization and reporting of security
data across diverse Information Systems from mainframes as well as distributed
