Data management vs. the cloud

Data management is a discipline that has been a slow adopter of the cloud – and understandably so. But despite the initial hesitation, porting data management functions to the cloud can offer many benefits that on-premises infrastructure could never realize.

Inside this 29-page eBook, find out what makes modern data management and the cloud so compatible, including:

  • Substantial cost savings via “pay-as-you-go” pricing mechanisms.
  • Minimal disruptions and accelerated DR/BC processes.
  • Efficient data tiering for cold and seldom-utilized data siloes.
  • And more.

  • Cloud monitoring and correlation for AWS

    While there’s no question about the benefits that cloud services provide, monitoring and troubleshooting is still a huge responsibility. And as hybrid environments continue to expand, piecing together data collected from multiple components can quickly become overwhelming and inefficient – that is, if you aren’t using a single pane-of-glass approach.

    Continue reading to learn about a unified AWS cloud monitoring platform, designed to bring a consolidated and easily-correlated view into your cloud data for simpler management and troubleshooting. Plus, find out how to configure the IAM policies that are ideal for your enterprise’s data collection needs.
