Eden Prairie, MN (PRWEB) October 07, 2014

EnduraData improves performance and adds security attributes to EDpCloud data replicationand file synchronization software.

Version 4.1.8 of EDpCloud file replication and remote online backup software now improves file performance and adds POSIX access control lists support:

  •     Files are automatically synchronized between systems, clouds and geographic regions to ensure more effective use of Big Data
  •     File ownership, permissions and access control lists are preserved
  •     Online backup to local or remote servers are scheduled or done in real time
  •     File changes are updated in one or more locations automatically
  •     Bandwidth use and time required to synchronize systems in all locations are reduced
  •     Continuous data protection and data availability are significantly improved.

Version 4.1.8 of EDpCloud allows users to move and distribute large amounts of data automatically and securely from one geographic site to many remote sites and from many remote sites to a single location (Big Data aggregation and backup consolidation). EDpCloud synchronizes data automatically between different operating systems (Linux, Windows, Mac, Solaris and other major proprietary UNIX platforms).

EnduraData EDpCloud helps businesses and government agencies to protect data, to migrate data between systems and clouds and to leverage data for decision making. The result is that companies use EDpCloud to bridge the gap between where data is created and where it is used to make informed and effective decisions.

Adventures in the Cloud | Weekly Photo Challenge

In the cloud business, we transport data from the place where information is created all the way through to the time a business decision is made based on the way the intelligence is gathered, parsed and presented. Our adventure lies in the cloud.

This week’s photo challenge tells us: “Whether your own or someone else’s, literal or figurative, take us on a photographic adventure.”

This adventure is one of school of children headed home after a full day of classes at the Masjid Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Their futures full of possibilities to acquire, create and share knowledge, a cause we believe in. We included our perspective in the form of poetry that portrays the photo:

Data transfer and knowledge sharing adventures

Adventures in the Cloud

Knowledge transfer, a continuum that brings communities together

Securely moving information

Sometimes losing data. File Backup is the saving grace.

Co-existing across information silos that contrast one another

Forgetting we live in a world of synchronicity, always in motion

Knowing we can’t duplicate individual experiences

This post was inspired by The Weekly Photo Challenge

Using EDpCloud’s Macros For File Transfer and Directory Store Path

EDpCloud File Transfer Macros

EDpCloud supports Macros within the storepath. By using Macros you can create a dynamic or custom path for your file transfers. The store path will be generated automatically by expanding the macros.

The following are some examples of how to use the macros(Additional information can be found by visiting: http://www.enduradata.com/pages/cross_platform_file_replication/html/eddist.cfg.html).

Example of a site where content is aggregated in directories using the file sender’s IP

<config name=``simple'' password=``linkpassword'' ><link name="tokyo" >
<sender hostname="tokyo.enduradata.com" alias="*"/>
 <receiver hostname="london.enduradata.com"
        storepath="/home/reports/%ip%"
  />
</link>
</config>

The example above will put incoming data from host 192.168.100.12 under

“/home/reports/192_168_100_12”

You can also break up the storage path into sub directories that include date elements such as the date, hour, minute etc.

Example of a site where content is aggregated by sender’s name and by day of the week and hour when data was received

<config name=``simple'' password=``linkpassword'' ><link name="tokyo" >
<sender hostname="tokyo.enduradata.com" alias="*"/>
 <receiver hostname="london.enduradata.com"
        storepath="/home/reports/%ip%/%weekday%/%hour%"
  />
</link>
</config>

In the second example, data transferred will be stored in directories that look like this:

/home/reports/192.168.100.1/monday/01
/home/reports/192.168.100.1/monday/23
/home/reports/192.168.100.1/friday/02

 

Notice that the file synchronization will be accepted from all hosts (alias = “*”) and the storage path will include the IP, day of the week and the hour.

Then following macros are available at this time:

%ip%                   : Remote IP of the data sender

%hostname%      : Remote host name of the machine that is transferring data to the current receiver.

%loginname% :   The is the username of the user

%home% :          home directory of the user specified in %loginname%

%weekday%

%date%

%month%

%year%

%hour%

%minute%

%second%

Using one or more of these macros allows you to build the path dynamically and organize the files transferred to the remote geographic site when data is transferred.)

Feel free to suggest additional macros that you find useful.

#Hashtags for File Transfer and Synchronization in Cloud Computing

Answer to What is a Hashtag

We wanted to take a moment to share some commonly used hashtag definitions used across social media networks in the file transfer and synchronization side of the cloud computing business.

According to the Twitter Definition: The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.

Learn more about hashtags in a post called The Hashtag, Innovation and Social Learning

#Filesharing – Distribution/Access to digitally stored info, i.e. computer programs, multimedia, reports, etc. Methods of storage include transmission & dispersion, manual sharing, utilizing removable media, and servers or other devices, networks, Internet based documents, and use of distributed peer-to-peer networking. It is often used in small, mid-size and large corporate enterprises.

.
#Privatecloud – In technology, a private cloud is a solution that keeps data within the firewall of a small, mid-size or large corporate enterprise. This allows the information to remain within an information technology department.

. #Hybridcloud – Hybrid cloud is a technology term, sometimes referred to as a private cloud computing model. It gives organizations flexibility to manage information remotely or offsite.

#Filesynchronization Updates files in 2 or more locations via certain rules that are either
1.    One-way: (a.k.a.) mirroring, updated files are copied from a ‘source’ location to one or more ‘target’ locations, but no files are copied back to the source location.
2.    In 2-way: updated files are copied in both directions with a goal of keeping the 2 locations identical to each other.

#Datadistribution – Methodologies for small, mid-size and large enterprise corporate business that transfer data (reporting, files, etc) from server to cloud, cloud to server, computer to cloud, cloud to computer and between computers in different geographic locations.

#Cloudcomputing – Use of a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet as a solution to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server. Cloud computing can be used by individuals, small, mid-size or large scale business enterprises.

#MFT – An acronym for Managed file transfer (MFT), a software solution that facilitates the secure transfer of data from one computer to another or from a computer to a server or from many servers to one computer.

#Managedfiletransfer – Managed file transfer (MFT) is a software solution that facilitates the secure transfer of data from one computer to another or from a computer to a server or from many servers to one computer

Ecosystems and Habitat Destruction is a Lie ?

Can technology slow the destruction Ecosystem destruction and technology

I am sure all of us love nature. No one wants to see the wonders of beauty get replaced by scenes like the ones in these pictures.  Some are worried about our food and water supplies while others engage in dogmatic discussions and denials.

How often do we take into consideration the impact of our choices and actions? What role does each of us play in direct and indirect habitat destruction? No, I am not talking about spotted owls here. I am talking about human habitat and human food web and supply (although rigor must consider system as a whole).  I am talking about dust bowls. I am talking about increased frequency, duration and intensity of various events. We will notice these events and experience their effects no matter what perception scale we apply.

When I saw these trees my heart was filled with sorrow. I started by blaming myself: I am sorry I use more than my share of fossil fuels. I am sorry I use more than my share of water. I am sorry I use more than my share of energy. I am sorry I use more than my share of water.I am sorry I use more than my share of shelter. I am sorry I use more cotton. I am sorry …

I am guilty like the rest of us.

It is ok for you to say you don’t care about  trees. It is ok for you to question science but please use facts. Lets have a discussion.

Please share with the world:

Why shouldn’t I be sorry?

Why shouldn’t you be sorry?

And above all what can each one of us do?

Please share what you see happening around your ecosystem. What can technology do to decelerate the rate of change?

We see what we want to see …

I want to share this article about how many people see what they want to see. This has a huge effect on how we do our work, make decisions or even live our lives. Visit the Nation Public Radio site link below for more information.

Aggregating content by date and time using EDpCloud

The following is a configuration that allows many machines to send content to a single remote machine. We decided to add a way to shorten the configuration for people who want to aggregate content into a single remote machine.

The %ip% will resolve to the sender’s IP address. The %date% will resolve to the current date. The %hour% resolves to the current hour. The %minute% will also resolve to the current minute. Note that the alias is a regular expression that is like a wild card to match a network address or a domain name.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config name="Network_Configuration">

<link name="link1">
      <sender hostname="localhost" password="YourSecrets"
        alias="192.168.*|*.yourcompany.uk|*.yoursupplierfriends.com"
      />
      <receiver hostname="content.YourSiteName.com"
          storepath="c:\incoming\london\%date%\%hour%\%minute%"
          password="YourSecrets" 
      />
 </link>
</config>
