-- CommVault and network software maker Group Logic are teaming up to extend file archiving to Mac environments. The companies are delivering an integrated offering that enables Mac computers to utilize CommVault Simpana software to achieve seamless access to archived data across mixed Mac, Windows and UNIX environments. Group Logic's ArchiveConnect is a client application that runs on each Mac desktop to ensure the Mac Finder differentiates between online and archived files while treating these archived files as though they were offline. The Simpana software archive module and ArchiveConnect remove the previous archiving restrictions placed on Mac users, according to the companies.

-- DataCore Software is stretching the size of its virtual disks from 2TB to 1PB. With this release, DataCore storage virtualization nodes can control pools consisting of numerous RAID sets, each well over the previous 2TB maximum. The new software release is available immediately. DataCore customers under current maintenance contracts are eligible to receive the 1PB software enhancements at no charge.
