  • Network Security Portal - Web based Key Management Solution While they face increasing regulatory pressures for robust data protection, many businesses also recognize the innate cost-effectiveness of network security. The cost to encrypt data incurs significant capex on equipment, software and processes. Superna’s flexible Network Security Portal enables enterprises to leverage opex spending and service provider relationships, leasing encryption equipment, but retaining visibility and control of encryption keys. The solution can also integrate enterprise-wide key management products to enable end-to-end solutions from data at rest to data in flight.

  • Eyeglass Isilon Edition File based storage is growing faster than any other data type in the Enterprise, meaning that business critical data needs to be protected with a complete High Availability and Disaster Recovery solution. The Isilon SyncIQ feature allows data from one cluster to be replicated to one or more target clusters to protect the data. Replicating the data is only part of the DR solution to achieve full RTO and RPO targets.

  • Eyeglass Vblock Edition As customers rapidly adopt the VblockTM System from VCE, management tools need to keep pace to ensure that the converged infrastructure is managed as whole and not on the basis of the individual components. Superna’s Eyeglass vApp leverages VCE VisionTM Intelligent Operations software and VMware vCenterTM software to provide a single integration point for VCETM Vblock System management. With Eyeglass, VCE Vblock fault monitoring, root cause failure analysis, capacity planning, configuration management database (CMDB) integration and SLA monitoring of critical applications are dramatically simplified. Eyeglass offers visualization of all Vblock System components and virtual machines with real-time health status, alarm aggregation and component alarm tagging.

  • Eyeglass Disaster Recovery Orchestrator A key issue with site to site disaster recovery is keeping track of the replication in a heterogeneous device and software environment. It is typical that there is poor visibility between these different devices from storage through the switching network and into the transport network. Issues in one device will have a direct impact on the interconnected devices and it can be very difficult to trouble shoot and isolate these problems. Superna has built an extensive practice in collaboration with our storage, storage networking and transport networking partners to build a complete environment to test end-to-end interoperability. Based on these learnings and experiences, we have developed the Eyeglass Disaster Recovery Orchestrator. This works with block storage systems, storage networking and a variety of transport types.
