Applogic 3.0 Backbone Fabric Controller

9.5 Overall Score

When CA took over 3Tera, it was a very interesting transition.  Going from a 20 man shop to a huge corporation I bet most of 3Tera employees were shocked a little,  maybe some had their worlds turned upside down.  CA Technologies, for the most part, bought out companies to ‘throw’ them away.  Did that change at all with the purchase of 3tera?

In this review we are going to cover the new up and coming Applogic 3.0.  CA 3Tera Applogic is a platform that allows you to create and build high availability applications.  It does this by using normal commodity hardware and essentially “clustering’ them together.  Once they are clustered it requires no use of a SAN’s array or anything.  It simply creates a Raid 1 across a number of the machines up to 16 times,  that way you can loose complete sets of hard drives, and still maintain data availability.  A SAN’s array is a Storage Area Network.  They are usually very costly 50,000-500,000 ranges.  This is one of the main reasons for going this route opposed to some of the other routes.

This release is where Applogic was taken from a command line driven platform to a completely Graphical User Interface (GUI) provisioned one.  They’ve also introduced a new Backbone Fabric Controller (BFC) to the mix replacing the current ALDO server.

    Thanks for the detailed step by step review. Did you notice that your article is missing parts of phrases in places, such as on the last page, second-to-last paragraph? The missing parts always seem to be at places where you’re delivering a punchline!

      Hey Eric!

      This is a beta. I only wrote this to really explain how the BFC functioned, and what we can be looking forward to. Being a beta product I wouldn’t feel really good telling someone that this is a great product. I can only tell them what we see so far. So far is looks as its going to be a great product, but there are things here and there that I think need to get addressed before it becomes a great product. Ideas are good. But being a beta… it’s…. beta..

    I’m just wondering what the new features are for V3? Apparently it’s supposed to have a lot more new things, but I haven’t see a list.
