FalconStor Updates VTL for Blazing Backups April 26, 2012
-- The latest edition of the company's pay-as-you-grow virtual tape library platform brings improved deduplication performance, scalability and security.
Spectra Logic's New Tape System Holds 3.6 Exabytes November 9, 2011
-- Storage vendor Spectra Logic launches five new products, including what it claims is the world's largest capacity storage system -- a tape library system that can store nearly 4 exabytes of data.
HP ships LTO-5 tape drives, libraries, media March 28, 2010
-- March 29, 2010 -- Hewlett-Packard today became the second major LTO tape drive manufacturer to deliver LTO-5 Ultrium drives, as well as LTO-5 libraries and (multi-sourced) media cartridges.
Spectra Logic libraries scale to 180PB November 10, 2009
-- Spectra Logic today took the wraps off a system that scales to 45PB per library, or 180PB in a library complex. Those capacities assume a library equipped with LTO-5 tape drives and cartridges, which aren't expected until April 2010.
Lab Review: Bridging the archive-backup divide October 30, 2009
-- With the introduction of government regulations for strict archiving of particular data along with new backup technologies such as disk-to-disk backup and data deduplication, IT must now bridge that divide with a flexible archiving solution that easily integrates into current IT procedures.
Lab Review: Reducing risk via lifecycle management for backup media July 30, 2009
-- Spectra Logic is incorporating into its tape libraries advances in data protection, including encryption key management, media lifecycle management, and automated initiation of SpectraGuard Support that go beyond incremental innovations in tape density and performance.
Thales addresses encryption key management April 16, 2009
-- Thales this week announced the Thales Encryption Manager for Storage (TEMS) key management appliance. In contrast to proprietary key management systems, TEMS is currently based on the IEEE P1619.3 standard and will eventually support the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard, which is expected to finalized by the end of this year.
LTO-4 encryption secures data August 1, 2008
-- Encryption is often necessary to secure data on tapes, and LTO-4 includes drive-level encryption.
Evaluating options for tape encryption July 10, 2008
-- Given that the pressures to encrypt data at-rest are continuing to mount, and the IEEE Secure Storage Working Group is nearly finished establishing standards for disk/tape encryption and key management, it is time to revisit some operational considerations associated with planning and policy development for tape encryption.
