Veeam Agent for Linux – backup goes back to the clouds!

The Veeam company has just started testing its new, completely free tool, which is Veeam Agent for Linux (currently in beta). Who previously registered to the testing program can today download the solution and check its functionality. The basic question is, who will benefit from this tool? All those who use public clouds and running there own servers, very quickly collide with the basic problem which is the lack of backup. Often, this option is available (additional fee), which, however, usually comes down to the snapshoting of the virtual machine. There is no possibility to regular backups and sending them to own DC, and if this possibility exists it is a very expensive option. Veeam comes up against this problem by providing an agent, which in the future will be fully integrated with Veeam Backup & Recovery. This agent will be installed locally on the machine and will perform a full file backup (this is not a traditional snapshot of the entire virtual machine) via the network (eg.VPN).

Configure Trend Micro Deep Security with VMware NSX for vShield Endpoint

VMware NSX achieved the status of GA and now each holder of a vCenter Standard license can download and install VMware NSX for vShield Endpoint. Generally, this is a very good move on that waiting a lot of people. At this point, it is now possible to migrate from VMware vShield Manager to VMware NSX in the vCenter 6 environment (particularly for holders of vCloud Suite 6 license). It also means the ability to migrate Trend Micro Deep Security from version 9.5 to version 9.6. But before you cast in to perform the upgrade as described here, think about it twice and thought to everything thoroughly. License NSX for vShield Endpoint is a very stripped down, basically has only two functions. Agentless antivirus (AV offloading) and Integrity Monitoring. This means that if you have a full license for all Deep Security modules you must use the agent in combination mode to use them all.

PernixData Management Server Appliance – Questions & Answers.

With the launch of PernixData FVP 3.5 and Architect 1.1 has been made, in addition to the Windows version, PernixData Management Server Appliance. This method of software distribution is a nod to the users, we will not need a license for Windows Server and MsSQL. Of course, previous version it is (and will continue) developed. Install and configure appliance version is virtually the same as the Windows version (with the exception of initial appliance startup). Deploy to the environment is a standard procedure, we only need to select the correct version.

Data Domain Virtual Edition – installation and integration with Veeam Backup.

As I have not once wrote, EMC deserve great applause for the approach to the subject releasing their products in the community version. This allows us to get acquainted with a number of solutions, including the latest one, which is Data Domain Virtual Edition. If you do not know what it is, I hasten to explain. It is a device that can function as a NAS or as a software tape library (VTL) and used as a backup repository (generally). Thanks to incredibly efficient deduplication algorithms, in a relatively small space we are able to cram a huge amount of data. Add to that the replication between devices, and several other useful features and you have a really interesting solution supported by most backup solutions (eg. EMC Avamar, Veeam Backup). In this year was released virtual version of Data Domain, which is distributed as a OVA file and includes a community license. This license allows the use of space 0.5T RAW (after deduplication safely accommodate 3T or more standard data), replication, encryption, and DD Boost ( support for external solutions).

VMware Log Insight – BIG-IP F5 Management Pack

Quite recently appeared BIG-IP F5 Management Pack for VMware Log Insight, this solution can give insight into the traffic on the Virtual Servers to the people that normally do not have access to the interface of BIG-IP (and not only for them). As we know, BIG-IP includes a module Analytical Application Visibility and Reporting (AVR), this module collects all the necessary statistical information and it is required to send information to the VMware Log Insight. Information in the dashboard are grouped as follows:

VMware Log Insight – Trend Micro Deep Security management pack.

As everyone already knows, anyone who currently have a vCenter Standard license, can now install VMware Log Insight 3.3 for vCenter with license for 25 OSI. This is excellent news, Log Isight is a very good product and its popularity continues to grow and grow. Deep Security Manager stores (and shows) all the necessary statistics for the last 24 hours or the last seven days (even though the same alerts can be stored for much longer). Good idea is to redirect all alerts from security policies to external SIEM, which in our case is VMware Log Insight.
