THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/26/12 -- Nexsan®, a leading independent provider of disk-based data storage systems, today announced that Connectria Hosting, a global managed hosting company, has deployed the Nexsan Flexible Storage Platform in support of the company's cloud-based backup and recovery services for enterprise clients. In combination with CommVault® Simpana® data and information management software, Nexsan's storage systems have dramatically improved Connectria's backup and recovery efficiency when compared to the previously deployed solution.
Connectria Hosting is a global managed hosting company that provides managed services, cloud hosting, dedicated server hosting and custom hosting services for enterprise customers. Connectria offers flexible cloud solutions that include public, private, hybrid and cloud storage options. As a growing managed hosting company, Connectria's cloud hosting customers rely upon them to deliver high availability guarantees. To achieve superior service levels in a data center with more than 100 TB in data protection storage alone, the managed hosting company needed to improve its cloud backup and recovery infrastructure.
Connectria searched for a robust, enterprise-class solution to meet its high standards for service. They found that many storage solution companies were too unstable or uneconomical for an enterprise data center environment. Every solution, that is, until Connectria found the Nexsan / CommVault combination.
"We solicited feedback from industry colleagues and were quickly pointed to Nexsan and CommVault," said Rusty Putzler, Vice President of Engineering for Connectria. "Everyone who had used the combination of technologies validated their reliability and performance. Once we performed a trial we agreed. Nexsan and CommVault just work. Plus, they are truly 'off the chart' in terms of operational efficiency and this translates into reliable, high performance services for our enterprise customers."
With the help of their deployment partner, EAGLE Software, Connectria has deployed multiple Nexsan SASBeast and Nexsan SATABeast storage solutions based on the Nexsan Flexible Storage Platform. To support the backup and recovery operations for the data housed on these systems, Connectria selected CommVault Simpana data and information management software. Connectria achieved significant efficiencies with the combined solution by reducing IT resource requirements, simplifying management and lowering operational costs. This was supplemented by enhanced reliability, technological innovations and advanced power management, providing up to 60% energy savings compared to the previous solution.
"For Connectria, achieving a high-efficiency data center design was critical," said Dave Hiechel, President and CEO, EAGLE Software. "The combination of Nexsan and CommVault technologies achieves this efficiency and more. The powerful combination gives Connectria a distinct advantage over its competition in terms of both performance and reliability."
Key benefits Connectria receives from the new Nexsan / CommVault solution include:
- High performance RAID storage systems that are ideal for disk-to-disk backup and recovery operations, especially when leveraging fibre channel-based interfaces
- Energy-efficient AutoMAID® Level-3 technology which enables Connectria to spin-down the disk arrays when not in use, providing significant energy and cost savings
- High density storage, enabling Connectria to conserve valuable rack space in its fully populated data center
- CommVault Simpana software to provide a single unified data protection platform for a more modern, secure and efficient cloud-based approach to data recovery
"Cloud-based managed hosting services are on the rise and providers such as Connectria need enterprise-class, high-value solutions they can rely on," said Victoria Grey, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Nexsan. "Together, Nexsan and CommVault offer a distinct combination of price, performance and reliability for operations in the cloud. It's truly the ultimate in efficiency with uncompromising performance."

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
