Access "A SAN for super sleuths"

Published: 19 Oct 2012

Top-secret types finally have a SAN they can use to spy with. With Xiotech's mobile Magnitude 3D 1000m, users can sneak in, copy up to 67TB of data and bring it back to headquarters for analysis--all without leaving a trace. Announced in June, the Magnitude 3D 1000m comes in a ruggedized 10U enclosure and includes a full SAN controller, disk shelves, management station, and Fibre Channel and Ethernet switching capabilities. Data capture can be either file- or block-based, and requires no host-side code to connect to the SAN. "The idea was to build a turnkey bundle complete with the cabling and interconnects," says Tony Celeste, Xiotech's VP and general manager, government sales. "To maintain chain of command, the cabinets are locking," he says, which prevents enemies from tampering with data. The system also includes "heuristic hashing" to ensure data authenticity. A few government agencies have already bought the 1000m but--surprise!--Xiotech is keeping their identities a secret. Access >>>

    • Archiving unstructured data by Jerome Wendt

      Companies must find ways to automate and simplify the process of archiving files and e-mail messages. ECM software addresses this large pool of unstructured data.

    • Bridging the gap

      Many disaster recovery and remote backup programs rely on an efficient, cost-effective WAN. Fiber-optic network technology is often required for long-distance data transmission, but you need to know what transport is best and the related implementation issues.

    • New tools to classify data by Brad O'Neill

      Putting data on storage systems appropriate to its value requires the ability to classify data. An emerging category of applications, Information Classification and Management apps, can index enterprise information and execute precise actions based on its content.
