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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
