Specialists of RSA Research found the Trojan GlassRAT program for remote administration (Remote Administration Tool — RAT) with "zero level of detection" signed with the certificate stolen or received from popular Chinese software developer. This malicious application could avoid detection throughout several years. The telemetry and limited reports which are not maintaining any criticism demonstrate that the purpose of GlassRAT were the Chinese citizens connected with multinational corporations. Being completely "transparent" for the majority of anti-virus products, the Trojan of GlassRAT it is possible to find by means of detailed examination, and also by means of final tools for detection of threats, such as RSA Security Analytics and/or RSA ECAT. Evidence that the method of the organization of command infrastructure of the GlassRAT network has much in common with other harmful campaigns which were directed to the Asian organizations of a geopolitical and strategic importance earlier is also produced. It is possible to study this information in more detail here: http://blogs.rsa.com/peering-into-glassrat/.
Few months ago we wrote about a perspective of storage of results of medical diagnostics. Let's continue discussion of this subject, and we will talk about need of separate (produktonezavisimy) storage of medical data, and on regional information systems.
Studying of a problem with performance and search of solutions are familiar to much not by hearsay. There is a large number of instruments of visualization and parsing of statistics of input-output. Now automation of the intellectual analysis based on Internet services gains steam.
In this post I want to share an example of the analysis of a problem with SHD performance based on one of such services (Mitrend) and I will offer ways of its solution. In my opinion, this example represents the interesting etude which as I think, can be useful to a wide range of IT readers.
So, the customer asked EMC to look at performance unrolled at it in SAN of hybrid storage system VNX5500. The VMware servers on which all turns "in general" are connected to SHD: from infrastructure tasks to file a sphere and the DB servers. Complaints to podvisaniye of the applications unrolled on connected to VNX servers were the cause of carrying out this express assessment.
Developing a subject of a backup and recovery on SHD with new architecture, we will consider nuances of work with deduplitsirovanny data in the scenario disaster recovery where SHD with own deduplication are protected, namely as this technology of effective storage can help or prevent to recover data.
Certainly, data protection methods from loss are defined both by the information volume, and the device on which they are stored. Both that, and another constantly evolves.
Therefore long ago disputes between supporters of traditional approach to backup and those who look for the new methods of data protection more convenient from the point of view of architecture of the used storage systems are conducted. Now this dispute escalated as recently a variety of types of storage systems sharply grew. Use of some of them demands to change approaches to usual problems of operation and ensuring availability, including backup about which I want to talk here.

At the end of June, 2015 in San Francisco, the USA, conference for the Docker developers took place. We bring to your attention the story of the engineer of EMS Ryan Vollner about how there passed DockerCon 2015, about a party and the conference which developed around an ecosystem.
For the last 3 years only the federation of EMC has helped to unroll program defined TsOD-y in more than 1000 organizations worldwide, having completely saved the available infrastructure, having optimized its use for ensuring business processes. And according to the made supervision, in most cases come to the similar decision of the company quickly and even it is unexpected for itself. Therefore even if now the program defined TsOD (further for brevity — POTsOD) seems to you something very much exotic, do not hurry to renounce its implementation. Risks of carrying out serious changes in the IT organization are intuitively clear. In this article advantages of transition to POTsOD and 4 common causes of their creation in the organizations are considered.
"Only" to build the multi-storey building, it is required to develop a lot of documentation, sending it to numerous contractors. And when it is necessary to design and construct such difficult objects as the enterprises of the power, oil and gas extraction and overworking, metallurgical and machine-building sectors, the volume of documentation exceeds the most courageous imaginations. And the number of the contractors participating in all design stages, construction and operation can reach hundreds. Everyone needs to direct the necessary part of documentation which passes numerous approvals, statements and editings, on many times plying between participants of process. Add to it infinite number of electronic and paper letters, faxes, financial documents, contracts and applications, and as a result poluchit huge information volume, constantly moving, changing and replenished. And all this, often, in the conditions of the drawing-in terms.
No wonder that fast and exact management of the similar project — creation and operation of the enterprise — is impossible without use of management system and accounting of documentation. The packet of solutions of EMC Documentum for Engineering, Plant and Facilities Management (EPFM) is intended for solution of this complex and labor-consuming challenge.
Many of us happened in situation when in policlinic do X-ray or fluorography, and then it is necessary to bear independently to the doctor these big and inconvenient pictures. And how many kilograms of nerves we spend, standing in queues in registry to receive the medical records which often do not appear on site or in general are lost. How many the person — days we spend, retelling doctors of history of the diseases and illnesses, forgetting important parts and exaggerating the little significant?
It is possible to give such true-life story of one of our employees: in youth he has had pneumonia therefore all next years on photofluorograms shading in lung was registered. The district doctor perfectly knew about it. But once the hero of this history had to do fluorography in other policlinic. And there, having seen spot, it was nearly hospitalized violently, having suspected tuberculosis. No stories about pneumonia have helped, it was necessary to go to the policlinic, to ask the old pictures and to carry them as the proof. But even after that looked sideways at it and tried to force to do control pictures weekly. And after all all these inconveniences and hassles could be avoided, at us in the country be well developed system of storages of medical data of regional and city levels. The doctor could come there and open all history of diseases of the patient since birth. The set of questions would be removed and time a great lot is saved.
