UniPrint Infinity Launches Version 9
Provides high availability and mobile printing for enterprise environments.
Toronto, Canada, April 14, 2015 – UniPrint (www.uniprint.net), the world leader in printing virtualization, today announced the launch of UniPrint Infinity v9, a managed print solution that can be used across any Citrix, Microsoft, VMware VDI or cloud computing environment to simplify printer management and enable anywhere, anytime, any device secure printing across different platforms, offices and geographies. The launch of UniPrint Infinity v9 provides the largest number of enhancements ever made to the product to improve performance, efficiency and security as well as cost efficiencies for customers.
Social, digital and mobile channels have transformed the way in which people interact. Digital technologies play a greater role in the way that corporate institutions manage their internal processes and functions. Enterprise printing infrastructure is one such function that is set to dramatically evolve as a result of an increasingly mobile workforce and complexity in daily printing requirements.
Responding to market changes and customer needs, UniPrint Infinity v9 offers enhanced features that improve printer driver performance and efficiency as well as the ability to capitalize on mobile printing capabilities, including Apple iOS and OS X printing, delegate printing and email-to-print functionality. The new version of UniPrint Infinity also offers enhanced high availability with load balancing capabilities for uninterrupted printing.
Security is an increasingly important factor for large and small firms globally and UniPrint Infinity v9 includes a 256-bit encryption scheme that provides added security to the print stream travelling over the network. A backup and restore utility will be available shortly allowing easier upgrade and faster recovery from any disaster.
Arron Fu, VP of Software Development at UniPrint, said, “We have doubled down on expanding our printing virtualization features to help address the needs of our customers. Our users were approaching UniPrint demanding the move to Infinity v9 for tighter security protocols for mobility and enterprise. We wanted to improve on existing features and capabilities to adapt to all user needs. UniPrint Infinity v9 will change the way people print in security-sensitive environments.”

Scale-out has come up as technology to meet the constantly increasing demands to the storage capacity. Unlike Scale-up it allows scaling horizontally. However, it also has some caveats. In most cases, you need to stick to the specific hardware with none or limited configuration options, which is cost- and efforts- consuming. You have to follow only one scenario – “compute and storage separated” or “hyper-converged” one, which essentially kills the idea of flexibility. The entry price is also an issue since most of the vendors sell minimum 3 hosts, even if you just need 2 for your environment.
Join Max Kolomyeytsev to learn to avoid these caveats and benefit from: – Scale-out and scale up with NO hardware lock-in – Scale-out with ANY hypervisor – Support “compute and storage separated” and “hyper-converged” scenarios simultaneously – Asymmetric Scale-out
OK I’ve been experimenting with Stretched Clusters to help design a client’s private cloud requirements back at work. The main dev was around the automation of VMs in a stretched cluster and I’ll create a separate post for that but in this post I wanted to show you how I setup my lab.
Basically in the below picture you can see that I have 4 blades and DRS/HA cluster stretched across them. We have the ability to have a stretched VLAN (PHEW) but I needed to also have stretched storage also. Now it’s not always convenient to install an EMC and VPLEX solution just to test theories, however with something like StarWind VSAN appliances which are cost effective and super super easy to deploy you can spin up a stretched HA storage cluster in no time at all.
Basically once you have your storage LUNs defined and HA protected it’s as easy as pointing your ESXi servers to the local instance of StarWind and let it do the rest.
