Ideas from the leading technology analyst and research firm
All organizations, regardless of their size or vertical, are more apt to implement a video surveillance solution in their environment. While multiple factors influence them to implement video surveillance, its continuing drop in cost may be the biggest contributor. However, the drop in cost of video surveillance is not yet so large organizations may throw caution to the wind. New factors now exist that should influence their choice of a video surveillance solution.
DCIG is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the inaugural 2022-23 DCIG TOP 5 Large Enterprise VMware vSphere Backup Solutions report. This report unveils the TOP 5 large enterprise backup solutions that organizations should consider for protecting their applications, data, and workloads hosted on VMware vSphere.
Application outages may occur for any number of reasons. Whether hardware failures, software bugs, user error, or a ransomware attack, these events cause application downtime. Since application downtime has multiple deleterious effects on organizations, fast application recoveries have taken on new importance. In response, virtual machine (VM) backup software providers have introduced and implemented multiple new instant recovery features into their solutions.
The article title, “Network Entropy is Decomposing Memory” may call up ghoulish images from a B-Horror movie, but it shouldn’t. It refers to a positive dynamic described by Rob Gingell, former chief engineer at Sun Microsystems. He said that, “Over time networks have this property of wanting to decompose things into constituent parts, have those parts get specialized and then reintegrated.”
Many enterprises struggle with managing expanding volumes of unstructured data throughout the organization. Storing, protecting, and securing this data creates challenges around cost, complexity, and scalability. Cloud-based NAS consolidation offers a solution for providing fast, flexible, usable access to all of an organization’s file data for all of its end users. DCIG ranks Nasuni as a TOP 5 solution for the cloud-based NAS consolidation use-case.
The rapid growth of unstructured data challenges many organizations. The DCIG TOP 5 solutions identified in this article deserve a look from any organization seeking to address these challenges by consolidating its on-premises file estate.
Affordability, ease of deployment, and power and space constraints factor into product deployments at edge locations. However, some intangibles factor in more strongly with these types of deployments. Among them, organizations need certainty that they have deployed a highly available and reliable solution the provider will support.
Ransomware attacks are escalating in terms of frequency, variety, and impact. Based on reliable information sources, it is reasonable for every organization to expect it will experience multiple attempted ransomware attacks in the next twelve months. Given this threat environment, it is time to demand more from infrastructure providers.
All organizations need to face an unpleasant truth: It is not a question of “If” they will experience a ransomware attack; it is a matter of “When.” While cybersecurity software serves as a first-line defense against ransomware, IT leaders recognize cybersecurity software alone does not thwart all ransomware attacks. And as an assumption an attack may succeed, these leaders also recognize they must protect their production and backup data. Immutable storage can help.
If your head starts to hurt anytime you think about backup software licensing, join the crowd. Backup software licensing must rank as one of the most unpleasant topics to discuss in all of IT. Anytime any conversation turns to backup software licensing, one can almost see people’s heads start to hurt.
