A SAN for super sleuths

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.

  • Storage for manufacturing

    Manufacturing environments typically have different storage requirements than corporate apps, and have to deal with globally dispersed design teams as well as growing regulatory concerns. Here's how several prominent manufacturers have met the challenge.

  • 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.
