Index Engines Release Updates To CyberSense Software

 Index Engines announced enhancements to its ransomware detection and recovery software, CyberSense (CyberSense is integrated with the Dell EMC Cyber Recovery solution and resold by IBM Resiliency Services and Global System Integrators). New enhancements include:

  • Increased data throughput for the analysis of backup images, including virtual machine backups. The enhancements include increased parallelism to fully utilize the processing power of the CyberSense server including the ability to quickly determine if file within a backup was already analyzed in a previous backup, allowing it to be skipped over for analysis.
  • New database workloads for CyberSense analytics and integrity validation. These include the SAP HANA database and the Microsoft Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), also known as JET Blue which is a core component of core of Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory. (DB2, SharePoint, MS-SQL, Oracle also supported)
  • New option that aggregates CyberSense statistics from clients into a central cloud repository.This repository does not contain any client data only anonymous statistics from CyberSense scans.  The statistics resulting from the CyberSense scan will be analyzed by the latest version of the CyberSense machine learning model for improved results.

AppDynamics Releases New Capabilities

AppDynamics, a part of Cisco, announced the general availability of new capabilities that are aimed at helping IT teams build cloud native applications with confidence by connecting hybrid cloud application performance to business performance in real-time. The company states that these capabilities solve the visibility gap between traditional infrastructure and cloud environments. The new capabilities include:

  • Full Stack Observability Platform: A new data platform designed to increase visibility and seamlessly ingest data from multiple sources including AppDynamics agent-based data, open-source tools and agent-less services and correlate the data across domains.
  • Cloud Data Collector: An extensible architecture for capturing and automating data collection and correlating cloud services with application code, user experience and business impact to provide full stack, context rich observability. Starting with Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) monitoring and observability service, Amazon CloudWatch, and then expanding to incorporate additional public and private cloud environments.
  • Cloud Native Visualization: A new visualization interface that reduces the complexity of monitoring cloud-native applications with a context-sensitive, easy to understand, visual representation.
  • Intelligent Application Resourcing and Cost Optimization: An integration with Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer will transform operations from reactive to proactive by optimizing infrastructure resources and costs in hybrid cloud environments.

Quest Updates QoreStor & SharePlex

Quest Software announced that it was enhancing two of its main solutions, QoreStor and SharePlex, the first enhancements since the newly unified Quest Information Systems Management (ISM) business. Enhancements include:

  • Version 7.0 of QoreStor takes the solution’s ability to leverage the cloud more easily and extensively than before by adding “Object Direct,” which enables customers to utilize object storage for the solution’s main data repository, providing de-duplication using native cloud storage for a more cost-effective option for secondary storage needs. With another new feature called “Archive Tier,” the solution now also allows backup data to be sent from a QoreStor instance directly to a lower cost “cold” cloud storage solution, such as AWS Glacier. Additionally, a new connection interface “Object”, enables cloud-based solutions that leverage an S3 based connection to store data to send it directly to a QoreStor instance, combined with “Object Direct” QoreStor 7.0 adds true cloud storage de-duplication for cloud native backup solutions.
  • New features in SharePlex bolster the solution’s role as a safety net, supporting Oracle database availability and data resiliency to drive Oracle availability where the business needs it most. The latest version provides more flexible ways to drive value from Oracle data while reducing cost by allowing migration to Oracle Database 19c, on-prem or in the cloud, and can move Oracle data to Kafka for superior data streaming or SQL Server for cost-effective offload reporting in near real time. Version 10.0 also extends SharePlex support for Oracle Database 19c on AIX, AWS RDS, Exadata, Windows and Solaris.
