On the edge

Disk-to-disk is where it's at

Idealstor, a manufacturer of
removable disk-to-disk backup
solutions, released a new system
that uses removable hard drives
in place of tape for off-site

Idealstor Teralyte is a disk-to-disk
backup solution designed for small
to midsize organizations.

The product aims to meet the
demand for an affordable and
scalable alternative to tape backup.
Unlike the Idealstor Backup
Appliance that comes installed
with the Windows 2003 Server,
Teralyte attaches to a server
or backup server via a Serial
Advanced Technology Attachment

Teralyte is available in two configurations.
The Teralyte 1000
offers one removable-drive bay
that can accommodate any manufacturer's
Serial ATA disk of any
capacity. The Teralyte 2000 offers
two drive bays and backup capacities
as large as 1.5T (assuming
750G Serial ATA disks).

Hop from camera to camera

PacketHop Inc., an instantbroadband,
mobile-mesh communications
systems provider, has
developed a system that lets
mobile users, such as first responders
and private security officers,
access and securely share video
from surveillance systems.

PacketHop Communication
System Version 3.0's capability provides
greater situational awareness,
lets users safely plan and execute
responses, and improves facility

Users of this new version will
include first responders, private
security and government agencies,
schools, ports, public transportation
departments, hotels and
resorts, and airports.

Version 3.0 uses PacketHop's
DynaMesh technology, which delivers
three times the multicast video
performance of standard 802.11
wireless networks, in support of
more robust wireless-video surveillance
