New features for version 1.1 include native, one-click PDF export, Flash export, a faster load time, improved MS Office file compatibility and accessibility support. In addition, support for AportisDoc, Pocket Word and Pocket Excel has been added for easier transfer of documents to PDAs and handheld devices. OpenOffice.org 1.1 also offers an open, future-proof XML file format, which allows users to avoid file format lock-in situations. The suite and its source code can be downloaded from www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/download.html.
Employing an object-based architecture that manages data as large virtual objects, the ActiveScale Storage Cluster is comprised of the ActiveScale File System, StorageBlades and DirectorBlades, a 4U system shelf and an integrated gigabit Ethernet switch. The ActiveScale File System turns files into smart data objects and then dynamically distributes data activity across the StorageBlades. This design enables parallel data paths between servers and StorageBlades, eliminating performance and capacity bottlenecks. Application and user data is stored in the StorageBlades, and filesystem activity is coordinated by the DirectorBlades. DirectorBlades also virtualize data objects across the range of StorageBlades so the system can be viewed as a single namespace.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
