Cloud-based NAS consolidation, based on enterprise-class software-defined storage, addresses many of the challenges associated with enterprise data sprawl.
Deploying technologies in today’s data centers generally requires enterprises to first buy, lease, or subscribe to the ones they need. Once acquired, the responsibility to effectively manage and utilize them falls to the enterprise. However, Huawei no longer views this model as the future of data center management. Rather, its growing technology portfolio combines to facilitate a data center as a computer model. This model changes how enterprises perform data center management and often better positions them to meet future challenges.
The annual National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, always draws in multiple data protection, data management, and storage providers as exhibitors.

Over the last 20 years deduplication appliances have become integral components in the backup strategies of many organizations. However, as more organizations implement hybrid clouds, they need to re-examine the role that deduplication appliances play in them.

I received an interesting email last week Friday. StrongLink, a company that I am joining for a webinar on March 15, at 12 noon EDT, on intelligent data management, shared with me an almost unbelievable screenshot (pictured below.)

Did I read that correctly and did it really mean a 1.8 exabyte file store?! As a matter of fact, yes, yes it did.
Nasuni recently hosted Nasuni CloudBound22, a two-day virtual conference. This article summarizes key takeaways from the event.
Many data protection and data storage providers highlight and promote their products’ hybrid cloud capabilities. However, their products continue to evolve to deliver more robust cloud functionality. As they do, the term ‘hybrid cloud’ fails to fully capture their increased functionality. Many have become hybrid multi-cloud offerings that manage, support, and work across multiple different providers’ clouds.
For digital preservation, public cloud storage does not scale effectively. Many institutions find it beneficial to implement on-premises object storage for storing their digital collections. Fujifilm Object Archive Software brings the advantages of S3-compatible object storage togther with the advantages of tape technology for an optimum solution for preserving our digital heritage.
Today, nearly all vital information or expression of historical, educational, scientific, or cultural significance is created or distributed digitally through computer technology and the Internet. Where meaningful, this digital heritage needs to be preserved. Digital preservation faces threats and risks different from its analog counterparts.
