OpenPeak's OpenFrame Devices

In-home device convergence has long been the Holy Grail for many a company. Remember WebTV? (Stop giggling, please, we must proceed!) A new and compelling Grail-seeker is OpenPeak with its forthcoming OpenFrame line of devices. Although details remain sketchy pre-Consumer Electronics Show, we do know that the goal is to create a line of Linux-based devices that “revolutionize the home phone into a 'third screen', complementing the home's PC, TVs and mobile phones.” These devices will utilize telephony, VoIP and Internet, thus allowing users to access e-mail, voice mail, personal calendars and information, as well as leave memos for family members and make phone calls—all from one device. The good news for us is that OpenPeak is seeking outside developers to create applications for its software platform. All products will be available through OEM partners, the first of which is Verizon.

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.
