A Product-News Potpourri

Sometimes there's just a lot of news that doesn't require a separate entry for each announcement but nevertheless merits mention in RCPU. That's why you're now smelling the warm, inviting aroma of...a product-news potpourri!

Dell, Seagate and McAfee have a new effort for full-disk encryption.

Sun announced "open storage" appliances this week.

EMC has an intriguing offering of storage for the cloud.

AppSense has released a new version of a product that managed virtual environments.

And somebody called NetQoS -- how on earth do we pronounce that? -- released something having to do with voice and video monitoring. (Warning: the ubiquitous and mostly meaningless phrase "unified communications" is prominently involved.)
