Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) often want to run the same technologies in their IT environment that enterprises already use. Whether it is cloud technologies, data protection, disaster recovery, high availability, networking, security, or storage, SMBs want them. They also want the right people with the right skills to manage this IT infrastructure. Historically, SMBs could not afford these technologies. Further, even if they do acquire them, they may still lack the in-house expertise to effectively manage them. Delivering on these competing but complementary SMB requirements for IT technologies and skills requires a company focused on them. Based upon what I saw at the recent Kaseya Connect Global conference, Kaseya stands poised to do so.
DCIG is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its second TOP 5 report on Microsoft Azure Backup Solutions. This TOP 5 report provides organizations guidance on the best backup solutions for backing up and recovering applications and data hosted in Microsoft Azure.
There eventually comes a point when enterprises say, “Enough! We need better options to manage all the features and technologies we have already acquired.” More technology providers have heard and responded to this cry for help. While providers still strive to introduce innovative features and technologies, many now seek to sustain this innovation through cloud consoles.
In this upcoming webinar on March 28, 2023, DCIG’s CEO and lead data protection analyst, Jerome Wendt, provides answers to this question of which Microsoft 365 backup features organizations should prioritize. During the webinar he goes into the details on DCIG’s latest research into Microsoft 365 SaaS backup solutions.
Every so often, an architecture emerges that forces providers to change how they must design and deliver their products going forward. Its impact becomes even more pronounced when it stands to shorten product life cycles and hasten customer adoption. HYCU’s R-Cloud release represents such a moment in DBaaS, PaaS, and SaaS data protection. It now makes centralized enterprise data protection solutions for all these as-a-service platforms an affordable, practical, and viable option.
The data environments of many businesses have become so large and complex that their backup infrastructures can no longer protect all their data or meet their recovery time requirements. Achieving data resilience at scale requires a new approach.
Enterprise caliber cyber security and resilience products that meet the needs of managed service providers (MSPs) and/or small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) remain in short supply. They need centrally managed, integrated solutions that deliver these functions. In response, Acronis has developed its own in-house, integrated Cyber Protect solution to meet them.
Nasuni recently hosted Nasuni CloudBound22, a two-day virtual conference. This article summarizes key takeaways from the event.
Too many enterprises deploy data protection technologies and processes thinking they can now withstand a cyberattack attack. Only after a ransomware attack occurs do they find these technologies and processes fail them at the most critical moment. To avoid this, enterprises must objectively assess the effectiveness of their existing data protection infrastructure. To help, Cobalt Iron and DCIG have partnered to create a free survey that nicely assesses their data protection maturity.
