We recently popped open the new Riverbed Whitewater 3010 cloud storage gateway to see just how powerful it is. The appliance arrives just in time considering the fresh urgency for disaster recovery (DR) planning following Hurricane Sandy.
The appliance is stuffed with high-powered hardware. The most powerful model we have ever produced gives large enterprises a fast, cost-efficient, and encrypted method to back up very large data sets to offsite cloud-based backup providers.
The new Whitewater 3010 features include:
- Four times the on-premise capacity at 32TB to target larger source data sets
- Four times the cloud storage capacity at 64–160TB to store more data, longer
- Faster 1.5TB/hour ingest performance to reduce the backup window
- Double the internal memory to 64GB
- RAID-6 protection
- Up to 60TB of weekly data protected at typical de-dup rates
Organizations of all sizes will also enjoy the easier-to-use dashboards and more powerful features in the new Whitewater Operating System 2.0.
- New Linux kernel for faster speed, stronger security, and more stability
- New Windows Active Directory support lets Whitewater easily integrate into enterprise organizations
- An all-new management dashboard provides at-a-glance status of the appliance, storage, replication status, and performance metrics
- Central management and monitoring of Whitewater appliances in remote locations, including rebooting, shutdown, and hardware sensor monitoring
Mitchel Weinberger, information technology manager at GeoEngineers, says that the new Whitewater 3010 is about 25 percent faster than his company's previous Whitewater appliances. "And with the Whitewater 3010, the larger the backup, the larger the improvement we see."
