Failed Carbonite upgrade lets customers down

I subscribe to Carbonite's backup service. Over the last couple of days, the teensy Carbonite icon in my system tray has been red, displaying a message that Carbonite's servers are unavailable. Today, I sent email to tech support, only to be informed that someone would get back to me "within 72 hours." That pretty much sucks when I'm paying for a high-availability service. If my hard drive crashes and I need assistance with restore, hopefully I won't need my data within 72 hours.Anyhow, I just received an email from Carbonite, describing a server upgrade problem:

Brocade, Nortel link on optical storage

Brocade Communications Systems and Nortel Networks announced a partnership Tuesday that they say will improve optical storage technology. Brocade, which makes infrastructure for storage area networks (SANs), will put its switches on Nortel's optical networks, the companies said, making for a more cost-effective storage technology and more reliable data backup. SANs store data in a centralized network, as opposed to on hundreds of servers. Nortel and Brocade said they plan to deliver a range of hardware and software for optical SAN technology by working together on interoperability testing and the extension of SANs to metropolitan and wide-area networks. Wide-area networks are made up of interconnected, smaller networks spread throughout a building, a state or the entire globe. The two companies introduced a product called "Solutionware," which gives instructions on how to configure and install Nortel optical infrastructure in a Brocade SAN environment. --Tiffany Kary, Special to ZDNet News

Quantum moves up in storage

Quantum released a new product Monday as part of an effort to break into a higher-priced section of the market for storage devices that connect to servers via ordinary computer networks. The Guardian 14000, which has Linux at its core, competes more with products from Network Appliance and EMC by adding features such as the ability to take "snapshots" of the file system. Snapshots can speed backup tasks and make it easier to recover from crashes or corrupted data. The 5.25-inch-thick Guardian 14000 has a capacity of 1.4 terabytes and costs $24,900, the Milpitas, Calif.-based company said. It uses IDE hard drives, which cost less than SCSI drives but are slower. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

Novell extends file access to Solaris, Linux

Networking-software maker Novell said Wednesday that it has extended a new file-access feature for its NetWare operating system to Sun Microsystems' Solaris operating system and the Linux operating system. The extension to NetWare, called iFolder, lets a user access and work with a file from anywhere using an iFolder client or a Web browser. A new version of the software also includes Web access from Windows CE and Palm OS-based mobile devices. The iFolder software already supports Microsoft's Windows NT and 2000 operating systems. Novell executives said the new support for Solaris and Linux is reflective of iFolder's potential use among service providers, who could use it to deliver storage and backup services across their networks. iFolder integrates with Web servers, such as Apache and Microsoft's Internet Information Server, obviating the need for a NetWare server to be running on a network, the company said. Separately, Novell released an upgrade to its ZenWorks systems-management software, adding support for mobile devices. The new enhancements are based on technology Novell acquired from Callisto Software last December. --Ben Heskett, Special to ZDNet News

Maxtor unveils new storage server

Maxtor has released new, 1.75-inch thick, rack-mountable storage servers with 640GB or 480GB of capacity, the company said this week. The models cost $5,499 and $4,999, respectively. The system comes with evaluation versions of MaxAttach EMS software for managing e-mail and SVS software for grouping several storage systems together into a larger virtual machine. The systems use a special version of Windows, an 866MHz Pentium III chip, and 384MB of memory. The systems are useful for tasks such as housing e-mail or providing a faster data-backup alternative to tape. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
