Superna Eyeglass® Golden Copy Feature list

Release 1.1.4 update 6 Advanced License Required

  1. Workflow API to copy data via a REST API

  2. Full Backup + Data retention integration managed by Golden Copy

  3. Backup reporting statistics for Backup paths

  4. Native Cloud provider tier support

    1. Allows copying data directly into the target tier without transition costs between tiers.

    2. Recalling data will automatically recall data from an archive tier without any user actions in the Cloud providers console.

  5. Version aware re-call workflow for incremental always version aware backup and restore work flow.  Allows restoring a specific time period, where file versions are checked if they match the requested restore time period.

  6. Ransomware Defender Airgap integration - Allows Golden Copy to learn about the Airgap status and suspend copy operations to S3 targets if Ransomware Defender has active alerts.

Release 1.1.4 update 5 Basic License

  1. Scalability

    1. Doubles concurrent job execution performance to 80 concurrent jobs

      1. concurrent incremental jobs 80​

      2. concurrent full copies 5

    2. Increases scalability to Scale out Virtual accelerators to 9 VAN VM's

  2. Security

    1. RBAC CLI Roles - allows creation of AD enabled roles to create different administrator roles by mapping CLI commands to a group.

      1. Active Directory integrated login enables SSH login with AD user accounts​

    2. Appliance hardening of the appliance management with builtin banned user with failed login attempts

Release 1.1.4 update 4

  1. Automated Data audit - Samples data randomly, downloads the files and calculates the checksum on the file and compares to checksum property stored with the file.  This audit verifies your object target data integrity.  Requires MD5 mode enabled and will accept a quantity of data in GB's to randomly audit the data integrity. 

  2. Updated Dell ECS Builtin Load Balancer removes the need for external load balancer to simplify and reduce cost of object solutions.   Add or delete ECS data nodes to load balance copies to different ECS nodes to increase copy performance.

  3. Incremental on Demand -  Normally incremental jobs in sync mode are scheduled.  This feature allows the archive command to specify incremental on demand to change list the folder and only copy the changes detect to the object target.

  4. Vertical Scaled Single VM - Increasing resources on a single Golden Copy VM allows performance improvements before needing to expanding to virtual accelerator nodes.


Release 1.1.4 update 3

  1. Virtual node Accelerators (VANs) - small file and big file load balancing allows Isilon hardware nodes to handle large file multipart splitting and uploads and off load small file copying to virtual node accelerators.

Release 1.1.4 update 2

  1. Secure Mode - Allows administrator login to Active Directory with proxy login through Isilon auth providers.   Local login denies CLI access until authentication session to enable CLI access.

  2. Virtual node Accelerators (VANs) -  Small VM's that extend the copy throughout that allows scale out copy performance externally from the Isilon cluster hardware nodes.

    1. Expand copy performance by adding virtual accelerator nodes, 2G ram , 30G local disk.   Hot add virtual nodes to expand copy performance​

  3. Per folder Archive full and incremental scheduling option to customize each folders schedule.

    1. Allows funning full archive audit or incremental jobs using Isilon change list api or both job types on the same folder

  4. Recall mode real-time performance with the searchctl jobs view command using the --follow flag

  5. Search & Recovery import copy allows customers with Search & Recover to search for data using any criteria required including data age (last modified or last accessed time stamps).

    1. Use Case - Archive Stale Data to S3 objects: 

      1. Search for Stale data with What's Growing Old? Quick report and export the results to CSV file.​

      2. Import the CSV to Golden Copy to start an archive job using the CSV as input

      3. Use Search & Recover  command builder to generate a script to move archived data to a staging area or delete the files to save space

      4. Enable the new feature in 1.1.5 to index S3 objects to allow searching for archived data.

      5. Search for archived data with Search & Recover UI and export a list of files.  Import the list of files to Golden Copy to start a recall job to return archived data to the file system. 

Release 1.1.4  Key Features Golden Copy:
