Sanbolic Melio Supports Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager to Back up Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V

Provides Flexible Back up for Hyper-V Virtual Machines

BERLIN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/10 -- Sanbolic announced that Melio 2010 storage management software suite can be used with Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 to back up virtual machines running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. Melio enables a snapshot of all virtual machines to be taken from any server in the Hyper-V host cluster, greatly simplifying back up. Customers can now use Microsoft System Center to invoke Melio's snapshot and centrally backup all virtual machines. DPM support will be available in December 2010.

Melio 2010 provides a unified storage platform for Hyper-V, physical servers, and virtual machines running Windows applications such as SQL Server, Exchange Server and SharePoint Server. When used in conjunction with industry standard storage area network infrastructure, Melio 2010 provides centralized provisioning and management of logical volumes, as well as shared access to storage volumes for storage consolidation, application availability, and scale out. Melio 2010 now includes storage traffic shaping and quality of service management that allows granular management of storage bandwidth. Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 automatically configure a Sanbolic Melio 2010 volume as an active-active storage resource, simplifying deployment.

"Sanbolic's Melio 2010 can be used with Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager, providing advanced storage management capabilities to enterprise customers," said Dai Vu, director of solutions marketing in the Windows Server and Cloud division at Microsoft Corp. "Sanbolic's support for DPM 2010 provides joint customers with a flexible option for backing up virtualized applications."

Sanbolic distributes its product solutions worldwide through a network of distributors, OEMs, value-added resellers and system integrators. Sanbolic will be exhibiting at Microsoft Tech*Ed Europe 2010 in Berlin, November 8-12 in the Microsoft System Center Pavilion. Evaluation software can be downloaded at www.sanbolic.com.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
