PowerShell Whitepaper

While intended for system administration and the automation of daily maintenance and management tasks, PowerShell has become a preferred tool for cybercriminals. Using the framework’s flexibility to carry out reconnaissance, download payloads, and create lateral movement, threat actors are able to quickly create malicious scripts capable of downloading payloads, sniffing out passwords or even downloading and installing PowerShell if it isn’t already installed on the targeted computer. Fileless malware is able to intrude the system through PowerShell vulnerabilities, which raises the concern of PowerShell security issues for security leaders. This whitepaper delves into PowerShell's popularity amongst cyber hackers, how it is being leeched onto by threat actors, and how to protect your endpoints from increasing threat.

Economic Value of In-cloud Data Protection with Dell EMC Data Protection Software

As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.

In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.

The Economic Value of Data Domain and Integrated Data Protection Appliances (IDPA)

To out-innovate and out-pace their competition, organizations must be on a consistent path to keep their infrastructure modern. IT is under constant pressure to deliver optimized infrastructure for new business initiatives and supporting applications all while trying to contain or even reduce costs. In fact, respondents to ESG’s ongoing research consistently cite cost reduction as one of the top business drivers affecting their IT spending. When asked in a research survey how their organizations intended to contain costs in 2017, 27% of respondents said that they would be purchasing new technologies with better ROI.

The IT Leader’s Guide to Maximizing Cloud Value

Cloud services like Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are robust tools for business success. They have evolved far beyond the obstacles and limitations of the past. In 2017 alone, the cloud grew by almost 40% - a phenomenal growth rate for any technology. By 2020, 60% of IT infrastructure and 70% of software and IT services spending will be in the cloud.

When deployed effectively, the public cloud is a powerful and disruptive model. It brings positive operational transformation and greater competitiveness. But poor implementation is equally disruptive.

Hybrid Cloud Strategy for Dummies

Cloud computing is proliferating and taking over the world of IT as we know it. Cloud computing also grows more complex and multi‐faceted daily. Organizations can create their own private cloud infrastructures in‐house, sign up for services from public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, or Microsoft Azure, or create hybrid environments. Other vital choices come close behind. Architects and engineers must deal with an array of connections, integrations, portability issues among clouds, resource options, orchestration, storage, and more. And somehow it must all be managed and maintained.

You can probably see why a carefully thought‐out and detailed approach to cloud computing — a strategy, in other words — is so important.

Why the future of the cloud is open

Choosing how to build a hybrid cloud is perhaps the most strategic decision IT leaders will make this decade. It is a choice that will determine their organization’s competitiveness, flexibility, and IT economics for the next 10 years.

Public clouds have set the benchmark for on-demand access to resources. But most organizations that use public clouds do so in concert with a variety of on-premise computing resources, albeit modernized and increasingly operated in a manner that provides self-service, dynamic scaling, and policy-based automation. Heterogeneous environments, both public and private, are today’s face of hybrid cloud.

IDC Report: Object Storage Customer Insights & Best Practices

Many organizations are at a turning point as they strategize their storage infrastructure needs for the long haul. In many interviews with IDC, end users reveal similar concerns consistently. Unsurmountable data growth, risks, long-term data retention for compliance, and cost constraints are some major concerns that define the road map for IT infrastructure within any organization. Generally, a road map is a set of requirements that drive the adoption of certain technologies or platforms. For example, rightsizing applications may mean potentially adopting newer platforms (private/public cloud, IaaS, PaaS, and on-/off-premises traditional storage). IDC's 2018 Data Services for Hybrid Cloud Survey indicates that while organizations are adopting a cloud-first strategy, security concerns (primarily for data in use) lead them to deploy a certain percentage of the workloads on-premises, driving the overall hybrid cloud adoption. The same survey indicates that data loss prevention, ensuring data quality, and regulatory compliance are the top data-related challenges overall.

  • A Large Broadcasting Studio in the U.S. Over 6PB of storage including block, file, and object data; growing at about 500TB a year. Dependence on LTO tape libraries for archiving, but now using Cloudian as an active archive tier to keep data accessible at all times.
  • A Wealth and Asset Management Services Company in Europe. Over 4,000 employees; 6PB of data across siloed storage solutions for block, file, and object.

TCO Report – Tape vs. Object Storage

We are living in an age of explosive data growth. IDC projects that the digital universe is growing 50% a year, doubling in size every 2 years. In media and entertainment, the growth is even faster as capacity-intensive formats such as 4K, 8K, and 360/VR gain traction. Fortunately, new trends in data storage are making it easier to stay ahead of the curve.

Historically, many studios and broadcasters have relied on LTO tape as the most economical option for long-term media archiving and backup — but that is beginning to change. The increasing costs of maintaining and expanding aging tape libraries are prompting many businesses to explore other options. At the same, the costs of more modern and flexible solutions like object storage now make them a cost-effective alternative to LTO tape.

In this paper, we will examine how object storage stacks up against LTO tape for media archives and backup. In addition to a detailed total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis covering both capital and operational expenses, this paper will look at the opportunity costs of not leveraging the real-time data access of object storage to monetize existing data.
