14 Sep 2016 Microsoft and Tuxera strengthen partnership through Tuxera SMB Server [56236]
Microsoft, September 14th, 2016

Microsoft Technology Licensing LLC and Tuxera Inc. announced they have expanded their collaboration to Server Message Block (SMB) technology, fueling innovation in a range of fields and enhancing business solutions for customers around the globe. The collaboration comes as Tuxera launches its new Tuxera SMB as a drop-in replacement for the open-source Samba and other alternative SMB/Common Internet File System (CIFS) servers, ideally suited for embedded platforms.

'All the existing SMB/CIFS servers on the market, both open source and proprietary, have years of legacy code as added weight. This makes them not optimal for embedded use due to limited CPU, memory constraints and demanding support requirements,' said Szabolcs Szakacsits, Tuxera's president and chief technology officer.

07 Sep 2014 Nexenta explains the economics behind Software-Defined Storage [38161]
Storage Switzerland, August 29th, 2014

Eric Slack writes in Storage Switzerland, "Nexenta is a software-only, software-defined storage (SDS) solution that enables users to create storage systems with the x86-based hardware of their choice and disk or flash-based arrays, with support recently added for all-flash arrays. Based on the ZFS file system, NexentaStor runs on VMware, Windows, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or Citrix, in a scale-up architecture supporting the NFS, CIFS, iSCSI and Fibre Channel protocols.

During our meeting at VMWorld 2014, Nexenta made the distinction that most other products calling themselves 'software-defined' are really 'software-based' According to the company, true software-defined storage solutions don't include hardware but they must actually store data..."

During our meeting at VMWorld 2014, Nexenta made the distinction that most other products calling themselves “software-defined” are really “software-based”. According to the company, true software-defined storage solutions don’t include hardware but they must actually store data. In their view, SDS should change the business model of how storage is sold, not just enhance or optimize an existing storage infrastructure. In fact, they claim that most software-based storage systems really only benefit the storage vendor, not the user, and gave the following example...."

11 Jun 2012 Three Recommended Methods for Moving Files Between Unix and Windows Systems [26530]
Secure Copy; Shared Drives; Rsync

The methods of moving files between Unix and Windows fall into three categories, writes Sandra Henry-Stocker in ITWorld. These are secure copy; shared drives; and file synchronization. She focuses on scpl and sftp commands; Samba; and Rsync, respectively. In the secure copy category, Henry-Stocker prefers pscp, which she says "works like a charm." In the category of shared drives, the writer recommends Samba, an implementation of the SMB/CIFS networking protocols. Rsync appears to be a favorite of hers for its ability to copy only the changes to a particular file, working equally well in Unix and Windows, she reports.
