LogLogic has announced the launch of the latest version of its Log Management software.

Version 4.9 contains more than 40 new features, including built-in support for direct connectivity to Fibre Channel SAN environments without additional gear or appliances and new device management capabilities that provide more system operation controls.

Also, more devices are supported per appliance (double on H2 appliances and 4x on the new ST2020 SAN) and support for SHA-256 message digests is included for enhanced archive integrity.

The company said that version 4.9 will be rolled out for the company's family of LX, ST and MX products, including the new LogLogic ST2020 SAN, a high-performance logging appliance solution that connects directly to enterprise-class Fibre Channel SAN environments.

Gary Hemminger, vice president of product management at LogLogic, said: “With LogLogic 4.9, LogLogic continues to set the pace for the log management market. As evidenced by our recently granted patent for the storage of raw log data, LogLogic strives to continually innovate and deliver log management solutions that meet the changing IT environments that handle big data and new cloud computing architectures.”
