Many people are under the impression that we have moved past using tape storage and it seems more like an outdated solution. It goes without saying that losing crucial data can be more costly than implementing a robust data protection plan. In this digital era, people are more inclined towards using hard drives and cloud backup with large storage capacities. The newer generation might not have even heard about tape media drives & cartridge. But, this is not true! Organizations Read More

In this technologically advanced world, people have started to leverage the offerings of cloud data storage. The cloud backup is a service through which cloud computing resources and infrastructure are used to create, edit, manage, and restore data, services, or application backup. This type of cloud storage is managed remotely over the internet service, which allows you to access your data anytime, anywhere. Because you can access your data virtually, a cloud backup service actually prevents data loss that may Read More

Medical Records

It can happen to anyone, right? Imagine going to the dentist for a sensitive tooth and giving sensitive protected health information (PHI) to the staff thus, in effect, handing over an implied trust that your data will be protected. You leave the office feeling better but then you get a letter from the dentist. As reported, the dentist apparently had a little bit of decay in his data protection plan: “On the late afternoon of Monday July 25, 2016, my Read More

Repurposing IT Assets in a Cloud Economy

The cloud economy is real. As AWS created the public cloud industry for the masses, the adoption rate of cloud offerings for everything, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has skyrocketed. As with most good things that are marketed to death and promoted as IT’s version of the second coming there are unintended consequences of shifting cloudward. Not the least of these is the dilemma of what happens Read More

Big Data Cloud Computing

It’s hard to imagine, but Amazon Web Services (AWS) turned 10 years old this year. In that relatively short period of time Amazon has essentially created the public cloud industry and opened the door for innovation in the IT space that has changed how IT functions. Before the public cloud became a product (versus the many individual, privately owned installations that had existed since the beginning of computing) companies followed a somewhat inefficient way of managing IT infrastructure. In short, Read More

While the pundits and prognosticators of the IT industry, and in particular the data storage sector, want to proclaim the death of tape for backups and archiving, the technology continues to roll on as if it can’t hear a single word. With unstructured data becoming more and more ‘normal’, tape for backup and archiving is one of the best ways to protect these large file formats. Tape, however, is not just for this kind of storage. In fact, traditional uses Read More

The Changing Face of Data Centers

Just a few short years ago, the data center was the dominant feature of any IT infrastructure. While data centers may still be important to many IT operations, their role continues to change. With the rapid proliferation of cloud services from the Big Four (Amazon, Microsoft Cloud / Azure, Google, and IBM), the data center is now less about lots of bare metal and more about strategic assets that are not ready for the cloud or have specific compliance needs Read More
