Bringing together backup and cybersecurity software and delivering them as a single solution used to strike me an improbable combination. After all, what was the business driver to bring them together? Then ransomware changed everything. Suddenly, the idea that an organization had good but compromised backups did not seem so far-fetched. This created the need for singular data and threat protection solutions that Acronis Cyber Protect helps exemplify.
Quantum’s acquisition of Pivot3 in July 2021 cast a spotlight on video surveillance in general and Pivot3 in particular. Enterprises expect video surveillance solutions to deliver much more robust features than simple video capture, storage, and archival. While they still need those features, they also want high-speed video capture and retrieval, real-time viewing, and analytics.
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.

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.
