Arkeia Expands Support to Include Mac OS X Tiger

Mac Version of LDAP Hot Backup Plug-In Introduced

Arkeia Corporation has announced that its Arkeia Network Backup solution now supports the recently released Mac OS X Tiger operating system. Arkeia also offers hot backup plug-ins to safeguard MySQL and LDAP data applications operating in Macintosh environments.

The Arkeia Mac OS X client performs backup of all files, including documents and applications, as well as important system files such as the Netinfo database. In addition, users can preserve privilege information and special file system features like Mac OS resource forks and Finder attributes. The Arkeia backup solution is also compatible with previous Mac OS X versions and Mac OS X Server operating systems.

The just released Arkeia Max OS X plug-in for LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) databases is tailored for the OpenLDAP based directory server included in Mac OS X Server. LDAP servers centralize network user information, manage server access levels and offer an online directory including contact details such as email address, direct phone line, photo, etc.

Additionally, Arkeia provides protection for MySQL operating on Mac OS X computers, for both offline and online databases. Arkeia developed this plug-in to enable users to protect information on MySQL's open source database which is pre-installed on Xserve machines.

"Apple Xserve stands head and shoulders above the crowd of rack-mountable server offerings, both in terms of power and cost," said Phil Roussel, Arkeia CEO. "Arkeia will continue to protect Mac servers in heterogeneous environments with our powerful network backup solution, as well as hot backup plug-ins for applications such as MySQL and LDAP."

The Mac OS X client and other hot backup plug-ins, are available for download as 30- day trial versions. More information is available at http://www.arkeia.com/strategic/apple/.

Arkeia Corporation is a leading provider of established backup and recovery solutions for departments and mid-size businesses utilizing Linux. Arkeia offers data protection software designed to ease the life of system administrators by providing efficient technology at a competitive price.

Products include Arkeia Network Backup, Arkeia Server Backup, bare metal Disaster Recovery modules, NDMP support for NAS backup and hot backup plug-ins for Oracle, DB2, Lotus, Open-Xchange, MySQL, PostgreSQL, LDAP, MS SQL and MS Exchange Servers.

Protecting more than 100,000 networks worldwide, Arkeia solutions have been adopted by 4,000 corporate-class customers in over 50 countries since 1999. Arkeia is privately held, with investment funding support from two major banking concerns.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
Kin Lane recently wrote a couple of blogs about why copyrighting an API is not common. I couldn’t agree more that copyrighting APIs is uncommon. First of all, the API definition is just an interface (It is the implementation detail … Continue reading →
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera MyS...
Your homes and cars can be automated and self-serviced. Why can't your storage? From simply asking questions to analyze and troubleshoot your infrastructure, to provisioning storage with snapshots, recovery and replication, your wildest sci-fi dream has come true. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dan Florea, Director of Product Management at Tintri, provided a ChatOps demo where you can talk to your storage and manage it from anywhere, through Slack and similar services with...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Ca...
