Database DevOps

Continuous delivery has changed the rules of the game. It’s not just about moving from big bang releases to smaller, faster, more frequent releases. It’s about putting in place a process so that reliable software can be deployed without problems, at any time.

One of the biggest advantages is in automating the repetitive development and testing processes that development teams use to deliver, manage, and maintain applications and databases. From version controlling changes to deploying them to different environments, and, when ready, choosing to deploy to production, continuous delivery helps teams reduce risk and increase both efficiency and reliability in the software release process.

Protecting & Securing Your Critical Data with Acronis Backup

Businesses today face far more invasive and potentially damaging threats than at any time in the past. Your organization’s IT security is the first line of defense against incidents that can cause business interruption and data corruption. While backup should underpin every business’ data protection strategy, it is no longer enough. To truly protect data, you must deeply integrate security into backup and data protection processes.

Despite increasing attention to security, backup procedures are often neglected in overall security policies. Like the old adage says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: stopping threats before they can cause irreversible data corruption can save your business the expense and effort of data restoration. In some cases, it can be the difference in your company’s survival.

It’s important to recognize that your backups contain all of your private and potentially sensitive company data. Unauthorized access or hacking into backups can result in intellectual property theft as well as information exposure that could damage your business.

8 ESSENTIAL PRACTICES FOR HYPERVISOR BACKUP

Virtualization tools like Hyper-V, Nutanix, VMware and other hypervisors allow systems to overcome physical barriers between resources while optimizing server and storage utilization as well as offering increasing flexibility. But protecting the environment and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created is still too often ineffectively addressed with complex, on-premises secondary storage models that come with heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The cloud is not shackled by these limitations.

The cloud is meeting the increasing needs related to business continuity and information governance as new trends change how infrastructure resiliency and long-term retention shape the data protection landscape. Download this asset to learn 8 essential real-world practices to put in place for hypervisor backup, archival and disaster recovery (DR).

5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.
