Vembu FileShare Just Got A Lot Better

A leaner, fitter and meaner v6.1 is now generally available

If you’ve been following us recently, this has been a very busy year for us. Last month, we announced the general availability of the 6.1 BDR release. Version 6.1 is a big new step for Vembu. It is not just a big release for our two major products – Backup and Disaster Recovery and FileShare, it is also the first time we’ve publicly unveiled our VembuHIVE™ technology platform, which has been in the making in our R&D lab for the last 2 years.

Vembu FileShare 6.1



What’s New in Vembu FileShare 6.1?

VembuHIVE™ platform – improved sync speed and reliability

Built on the VembuHIVE™ Technology, v6.1 of FileShare is:

> Faster

An all-new powerful proprietary file system reduces the storage size of every shared file, reduces the data transfer between users and the server. This means faster, more reliable sychronization

> Leaner (reduced storage)

Variable-length block-level global deduplication may be a mouthful, but it is a name worth remembering. It is a powerful technology that stores common data blocks present in multiple files only once (not to be confused with file level deduplication), saving an average of 50%

> More Dependable

Since it is built on the same platform as our backup suite, you will be able to replicate your file servers to offsite locations for an extra layer of security

Modern. User Friendly. Mobile Applications

The Vembu FileShare iOS and Android mobile applications are totally revamped from the ground creating a delightful user experience to view and share your files on-the-go.

AES Encryption

Vembu FileShare now supports AES 256 bit encryption which encrypts the data at the client-side and ensures data security both at-rest and in-flight.

Repository Management

A scalable storage volume manager which provides support for multiple volumes on different storage media such as local disk, NAS , CIFS share or any Storage Technology.

Automated. Automated. Automated.

Everything is automated. Right from managing your customer’s user licenses, generating their custom invoices until updating their client software (whenever there is a new release) is all AUTOMATED.

Go ahead and get started today!

Erasure Coding – Key to Backup dependability

Surely, there’s nothing more important to your company than the data your users access and store every day.  For this reason alone, system admins would have evaluated and deployed a BDR solution in place, planned for the schedule of backups, configured them based on organizational RTO and RPO considerations and then spend a good amount of time monitoring the backups for alerts and notifications. So far, so good, But…

correct

How do you know for sure that the data you backup can be restored without a glitch ? 

Where is the assurance on the integrity of the backup, whether it is on-premise or in the cloud ? 

 

Cone of Constraints

Data integrity is intricately intertwined with the technical sophistication with which the BDR product implements its error detection processes and incorporates fail-proof checks for corruption and subsequent steps for correction. However, all solutions are not equal on this count of proactively identifying data corruption preventing corrupted data from being transferred during the backup process.

The New Trend of Marketing Integration

Social Talk – The Model of Communication

A profit business organization relies on a strong marketing team to sustain and remain in business today with the competition they experience from social media marketers. A Wikipedia article on Millennials differentiating the social and behavioural patterns categorized generations as the Gen-X [Early 60s’ to early 80s’], Gen-Y [Early 80s to 2000] and “Generation Flux”, those between Gen-X and Gen-Y. However, the study revealed a pattern of change with the common being societal changes that frequently use social media, smartphones, mobile computing and other technologies among Gen-Y. Another study by Gabriela Taylor revealed that although Gen-X are connected on social media they prefer a face-to-face kind of relationship whereas Gen-Y oppose face-to-face relationship.

Every medium of marketing has it’s own pros and cons. However, a combination wherein the Gen-X start the initial face-to-face marketing efforts with the Gen-Y following the customer on social media channel can establish the social identity and trust to sustain the business relationship. The benefit of this marketing cannot be ignored given that an ideal  small and medium business [SMB] provider integrates their own means of identifying the ideal product or service for the benefit of business.

Social Media Statistics

Blogging for Dustn.tv, Dustin writes about his findings on the active Social Media users as of September 2013 tabulated below:

Social Media

Age at 2013

Daily Active Users[1]

Monthly Active Users

LinkedIn

10

259 Million

259 Million

Facebook

9

727 Million

1.19 Billion

Twitter

7

500 million

232 Million

                                                                                    [1] Source: Social Media Corporate Website

“The Speed of Trust” applies very much to the modern day irrespective of how well the social media market might have a presence in the marketing channel. This is where the Gen-X creates the first trust for the organization with the lead through face-to-face marketing while Gen-Y continue to engage their customer through social media.

Integrating Social Media in a structured manner into the business

Marketing teams in small and medium businesses, therefore, need one unified tool to take their marketing ideas to both Gen-X and Gen-Y segments. Given that today Social Media is something that every business has to adopt, the SMB need to consider the advantages of social media marketing as a viable approach to break even in their investment.

Vembu CRM provides exactly that platform to adopt. It provides a low-risk, high performing solution platform for sales, marketing and customer service having specific features:

  • Works on a unified platform

  • Integration with social media

  • Control over opportunities based on various demographics

  • Relatively user-friendly
