Hi Hu,

It does represent a pretty good cross-section of the industry. However, it would be nice to see a security company there such as Symantec since storage and security are becoming so increasingly interdependent. I suppose EMC’s acquisition of RSA gives them some weight in that area. It seems Symantec/Veritas and EMC/RSA are both converging on the same idea.

[...] So what happened this October that did not happen before? You might have already seen it in the announcement by SNIA or in Hu Yoshida’s blog, not only I have been kindly re-elected by the SNIA members as Director of the SNIA Board of Directors for another 2-year term, following my 2 previous terms between 2001 and 2005, but I have also been privileged to be elected as Chairman of the Board for this year. This is a great honor for me to lead this prestigious industry association where many industry talents have already contributed to the advancement of the storage industry. Storage has moved up the stack and the SNIA has to proactively develop the necessary programs to continue progressing for further integration and leveraging of standardized data storage management tools inside the data centre, in support of information management requirements.

For those of you using a ‘cuda spam appliance (we’re using the 300 model), I just found out that the file attachment filter will catch all Office 2007 files IF you are blocking .zip files, which we are. According to the vendor, the new MS format is a compressed type and therefore viewed as a standard .zip.

I put in a feature request to have this behavior changed in the next revision. However, in the mean time, it’s extra work for us as we’ll have to check the quarantine mailbox for legit emails with Office 2007 attachments; I am not going to allow .zips into the law school.

If anyone else is using a ‘cuda appliance, I’d love to hear how you are handling this.

Thanks
