SonicWall beefs up storage offerings

New hardware for its Continuous Data Protection line

SonicWall is revamping the hardware for its storage appliances, giving them much more capacity from the top of the line to the bottom.

The four new Continuous Data Protection (CDP) models, available December 15, replace the four original models which the company is no longer selling. SonicWall has not set formal end-of-life details for them.

Two of the new boxes are designed for small and midsize businesses with 400GB of storage. The other two, with up to 4.25TB of RAID 5 storage, are designed for central corporate sites to back up smaller appliances. They can also be used by value-added resellers as part of a backup-in-the-cloud service, SonicWall says.

The old CDP models stored 160GB to 600GB.

CDP devices can restore data from block-level changes to entire hard drives, and the company claims end users can make the fixes themselves without the intervention of IT administrators.

CDP client software runs on each machine to be backed up. It continuously backs up changes to the file system. Since buying the technology with the purchase of Lasso Logic in 2005, SonicWall has rewritten the firmware for the appliances to harden it.

The new models and their base prices are: CDP110 at US$2,000; CDP 210 at $3,500; CDP 5040 at $9,000; and CDP 6080 at $12,000.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
