Bamboo Systems Granted New Patent

Bamboo B1000N

Bamboo Systems announce that it has been granted a new patent in the UK (GB2574800). This patent is for “a system and method for bridging computer resources.” Nothing vague about that. In essence, the patent is because the company permits different classes of data bridges between I/O resources while maintaining the compatibility of existing application interfaces.

Clumio Launches Ransomware Protection

Clumio announced what it is referring to as the industry’s first air-gapped ransomware protection, with 30-day retention for VMware / VMware Cloud on AWS, Amazon Web Services (EC2/RDS/EBS), and Microsoft M365 data. The company also claims the fastest time to protection with the elimination of the need for businesses to locate a second air gap site, buy more hardware, manage a separate backup network or manage air gap network security. Clumio RansomProtect is available now as Service.

JetStream DR for Azure VMWare Solution Announced

JetStream announced its DRaaS, JetStream DR, will support Microsoft Azure VMware Solution. The software will be used alongside the Azure Blob Storage. JetStream DR can be used to protect VMware VMs in the customer’s on-premises data center with failover and VM recovery in Azure VMware Solution. Benefits include:

  • Cost-Effective DR: Maintains VMs and their data in Azure Blob Storage, enabling enterprise-grade DR at a lower cost of operation.
  • Agentless CDP: Captures and replicates data continuously via VMware IO Filters for continuous data protection without VM agents.
  • vSphere to vSphere Recovery: Supports Azure VMware Solution, so customers no longer need to maintain a failover site. They can failover to Azure VMware Solution and failback as needed when the original protected data center is restored.
  • Storage-Independent: Protects VMs in all VMware-compatible datastore types: block, file, vSAN, VVOL and third-party HCI.
  • Live Failback: Returns VMs to the protected site from Azure VMware Solution without interruption to VMs’ operation or protection.
  • Decoupled Design: Azure Blob Storage is more than just a journal or “cold data tier” — it is the sole repository for all VMs, data, configuration metadata, and recovery policies.
