Cohesity automates disaster recovery with SiteContinuity

Data management vendor Cohesity's new Cohesity SiteContinuity product provides automated disaster recovery and is integrated with the company's existing backup and continuous data protection capabilities.

Cohesity SiteContinuity is said to allow the recovery of a single file, an application, or an entire data centre with just a few clicks, even across application tiers and on-premises and public cloud environments.

According to Cohesity, a prime benefit is simplified operations thanks to the consolidation of backup, continuous data protection and automated disaster recovery on a single platform with one user interface and a unified policy framework.

Other benefits include near-zero application downtime and data loss, flexible recovery to any point in time, machine learning based ransomware detection and recommendation, disaster testing, reduced costs (in part by achieving better storage efficiency), and "limitless" scalability.

"Cyber threats such as ransomware and growing natural disasters such as hurricanes or wildfires increasingly put critical applications and data at risk," said Cohesity vice president of product management Matt Waxman.

"With that backdrop, this is an ideal time for IT leaders to rethink how they can simplify IT operations while also reducing costs with an integrated, web-scale, converged backup and disaster recovery solution."

Cohesity SiteContinuity will be generally available by the end of 2020.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
