Tips to Selecting the Best Cloud Backup Solution

| Cloud, Data Protection | No Comments
The cloud has gone mainstream with more companies than ever looking to host their production applications with general-purpose cloud providers such as the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). As this occurs, companies must identify backup solutions architected for the cloud that capitalize on the native features of each provider’s cloud offering to best protect their virtual machines (VMs) hosted in the cloud.

Number of Appliances Dedicated to Deduplicating Backup Data Shrinks even as Data Universe Expands

| Data Protection, DCIG, Deduplication, Storage Systems | No Comments
One would think that with the continuing explosion in the amount of data being created every year, the number of appliances that can reduce the amount of data stored by deduplicating it would be increasing. That statement is both true and flawed. On one hand, the number of backup and storage appliances that can deduplicate data has never been higher and continues to increase. On the other hand, the number of vendors that create physical target-based appliances dedicated to the deduplication of backup data continues to shrink.

Leading Hyperconverged Infrastructure Solutions Diverge Over QoS

| DCIG, Hyper-converged | No Comments
Virtualization largely shaped the enterprise data center landscape for the past ten years. Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) is beginning to have the same type of impact, re-shaping the enterprise data center to fully capitalize on the benefits that virtualizing the infrastructure affords them. Enterprises considering HCI as a replacement for existing core data center infrastructure should give special attention to how the solution implements quality of service technology. Superior QoS technology will reduce OPEX by simplifying management and reduce CAPEX by consolidating many workloads onto the solution.
