  • Storage Magazine: Cloud DR - Cloud's "Killer App"

    Cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) is shaping up as a killer app for the cloud. It’s cheaper than other DR arrangements, can be implemented quickly and recoveries can be lightning fast. It’s a pretty direct route to solid data protection, but there are key decisions to make and some gotchas to watch out for.

    Many companies want the convenience of a storage cloud service, but don’t want to ship their data off-site. OpenStack, an open source collection comprising a cloud operating system, an orchestration layer and service apps, can use existing storage resources to create an internal cloud storage service.

    NetApp, EMC and Dell all earned high marks from users in the ninth annual Quality Awards service and reliability survey for NAS systems. EMC and Dell finished in a virtual dead heat in the enterprise division, while NetApp outdistanced EMC by a slightly wider margin in the midrange group.

  • Are you ready to handle the challenges of modern backup?

    Data backups have evolved to the point that they are hardly recognizable. For many organizations, the days of producing a nightly backup to tape are over. Exponential data growth and the need for near real-time data protection have driven organizations to abandon legacy backups in favor of next generation disk-based solutions.

    This E-Book is a primer on modern data protection techniques. Explore topics, like:

    • The types of backup targets available today, from tape libraries and VTLs to deduplicating disk arrays, integrated backup appliances and the cloud
    • The capabilities that backup software platforms offer today
    • Backup challenges IT teams face, including backing up large amounts of data, mobile device backup and BYOD, virtual server backup, and slow restore times
