Nabtobox – indiegogo campaign for a remote access device

From the Nabtobox campaign

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nabtobox-one-click-peer-to-peer-remote-access-to-your-home-network-in-a-box

Access anything connected.. You can access, readout the status and control your networked thermostats, stream files from your PVR or media server, view the output of your surveillance cameras, alarm-system, get files from your NAS box or file-server, stop or start your lawn irrigation system, pool control system, even if the devices didn’t have an remote connect option installed… the possibilities are endless

….

Why Nabto-box?

Nabto-box is a retrofit solution for non-remote accessible networked Gizmos. A lot of Gizmos are born with network capabilities (like Ethernet or WIFI) and some newer Gizmos can also be reached remotely with the right remote access APP or software (which btw. is what we normally do), however the vast majority of Gizmos was only designed with local network access in mind, combined with cumbersome remote access. This is not a direct reflection of the vendor, it’s because remote P2P access is hard to do.

Announced price: $65 + shipping. For tinkerers and testers the campaign brings also some other solutions starting from $29.

If it will prove that is a secure device, it may be a great addon to any Home Automation Solution.

UltraDedup – deduplication software for VMWare Virtual Machines

Steve Heller (the autor of C++: A Dialog, Optimizing C++ and many other great books) announces the release of UltraDedup http://www.ultradedup.com.

UltraDedup is a command line program created to ease the storage of backup files of VMWare virtual machine files  by compressing and/or removing duplicate data.

A command line example that will create a Chapter (= a collection of files) in an Archive and place two files in it:

     ultradedup p "f:\MyArchives\VHD_Miller.ud"
          –n "Some chapter name"
          –d "f:\SomeDirectoryName"
          -f "SomeFile.txt"
          -f "SomeOtherFile.idx"
          -dedup 0
