Oops…My Bad! 5 Blogs We Missed Last Week

Here we go again! As I do each week, I am really enjoying bringing our readers a quick round-up of the blog coverage I didn’t manage to get to during the week prior.

A reminder that voting has been extended to Feb. 22 for the 3rd Annual SMB Nation 150 Awards; go to www.SMB150.com, to vote for all of your industry favorites…

Also note that this year’s Spring Conference will be held May 3-5, 2013, at the Microsoft Redmond Campus. For more information, and to register, go to: http://spring.smbnation.com/.

As for other live industry events, see our own Harrybbb at the Parallels Summit at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas today through Wednesday. If you are going to be in town attending, don’t forget to hit up him up for a meet and greet at the event!

As you get through your busy Monday, or perhaps recovering from a post-Super Bowl high (or low), please still take some time to peruse a few snippets of information that we didn’t get a chance to bring you last week….let us also know if there was something we might have missed, which is not mentioned in this entry…because as you know…we love news!

1.) Oracle PartnerNetwork Launches Modern Marketing Enablement Series: Following the success of its Social Media Rally Stations for partners at Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) today extended its leading enablement resources to include a new track on “Modern Marketing for Today’s Digital World.”

The new enablement resource center, including a 12-week webcast series and library of valuable best-practice and how-to guides, is designed to help partners boost their brand presence online to further awareness, growth and business opportunities.
Initial resources in the enablement series include enhancing your online profile, building a community on Twitter and LinkedIn, maximizing the benefits of Google AdWords and much more.

As an added benefit to OPN members, authorized partners can use the Oracle trademark in their Google AdWords ads, to help further their reach online and optimize target results. For more information, visit here.

2.) N-able Technologies Posts Record Year of Growth, Outlines Game Plan for 2013: N-able Technologies said last week that it exceeded its aggressive company growth expectations by 47 percent and achieved record-high partner satisfaction and growth ratings in 2012. N-able CEO Gavin Garbutt also stated that, thanks to its MSP partners, the industry innovator is well positioned to accelerate growth in 2013 and will continue to execute against its core vision of making N-able's partners the world's most successful MSPs.

One of the many metrics N-able uses to benchmark performance and measure success is the average growth percentage its MSP partners achieve year over year. In 2012, the number of clients managed by N-able partners grew an average of 44 percent, bringing the total number of small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) and enterprises (SMEs) managed by N-able's N-central RMM platform to more than 82,000. Another performance indicator tracked by N-able is number of devices managed by N-able's MSP partners, which increased by 67 percent in 2012.

The company also welcomed more than 300 MSPs from competitive platforms in 2012, and earned nearly a dozen industry awards including SMB Nation’s 2012 Hot Shot Award (RMM Category).

3.) ManageEngine Monitors Application Performance for Big Data and NoSQL: ManageEngine last week announced that its on-premise application performance monitoring solution, Applications Manager, supports NoSQL technologies that drive big data. Now, Applications Manager can monitor application performance and provide operational intelligence for the Apache Cassandra and the MongoDB NoSQL databases. The ManageEngine solution also continues its existing support for traditional relational databases such as Oracle, MySQL and memcached.

Applications Manager enables comprehensive Cassandra performance monitoring and administration of all nodes in a cluster from a centralized console. The key performance metrics of Cassandra monitored by Applications Manager include heap size and usage, garbage collection, IO wait, cache hit rate and compaction count.

Applications Manager is available immediately with prices starting at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications for the Professional Edition. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is available at http://ow.ly/7evOs.
 
4.) Incapsula Strengthens Website Security with Backdoor Protect: Incapsula last week announced Backdoor Protect, a new tool that transparently detects and disables malicious backdoors for instant remediation of compromised Web sites and ongoing protection from backdoor threats.
 
Incapsula Backdoor Protect is the first nonintrusive service that, by mentoring website traffic, is able to detect and disable backdoors that are already installed on a website. The backdoor identification is performed by profiling the website’s traffic and comparing it against an extensive database of backdoors, enabling the detection overcome file obfuscation and signature mutation.  This capability is a new addition to Incapsula’s cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF) that is activated through a simple DNS change and does not require installation of hardware, software or making any changes to the website.
 
5.) Tech Data Marketing Suite Drives New Business for VARs: Tech Data Corporation last week launched TDEngage, a new marketing suite that enables resellers to generate new business and leads through syndicated online content from leading IT vendors, streamlining the flow of information from vendors through resellers to end users.  

TDEngage is now available free for Tech Data resellers through TDAgency, Tech Data’s in-house channel marketing services agency.
