Virtual Data Center in a Box

Although all organizations today face challenges managing and mining their data for our new data-centric world, when IT budgets are constrained, these challenges are even more daunting. To break through these barriers, four vendors – Cisco®, Pure Storage®, VMware® and Veeam® – have combined their development efforts to provide a cost-effective converged solution ideal for entry-level data centers or branch office deployments.

Virtual Data Center FlashStack™ Mini includes compute, networking and Pure Storage flash storage, combined with Veeam data availability software, to safely deploy up to 500 to 1200 VMware vSphere® virtual machines with less than 1 ms response time for the most demanding applications.

All-flash Availability for the Always-On Enterprise

Together, Pure® Storage and Veeam enable the Always-On Enterprise™ to meet service level agreements (SLAs) for ALL applications and data.

The Pure Storage data platform powers virtualization by allowing administrators to consolidate workloads without sacrificing performance and to achieve 100% virtualization with confidence. Pure Storage enables scale from hundreds to thousands of VMs without disruption, and is completely managed inside vCenter.

Pure Storage FlashArray provides fast and reliable block storage for your production data, as well as local snapshots for rapid restore. FlashBlade™, a highly dense all-flash data platform designed for big data and concurrent workloads, enables you to store large data sets in a small data center footprint and restore them rapidly.

Veeam Software leverages virtual machine capabilities, Pure Storage snapshots, image based backups and cloud technologies that enable the Always-On Enterprise to achieve recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), of <15 minutes for All applications and data. Veeam simplifies IT operational management, mitigates risk and dramatically reduces capital and operational costs.

2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis

The Black Duck by Synopsys Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) report provides an in-depth look at the state of open source security, license compliance, and code-quality risk in commercial software. Each year, the Black Duck OnDemand audit services group conducts open source audits on thousands of applications for its customers—primarily in conjunction with merger and acquisition transactions. This year’s analysis was done by the Synopsys Center for Open Source Research & Innovation (COSRI) and examines findings from the anonymized data of over 1,100 commercial codebases audited in 2017. Industries represented in the report include the automotive, big data (predominantly artificial intelligence and business intelligence), cyber security, enterprise software, financial services, healthcare, Internet of Things (IoT), manufacturing, and mobile app markets.

The OSSRA report includes insights and recommendations intended to help organizations and security, risk, legal, development, and M&A teams better understand the open source security and license risk landscape as they strive to improve their application risk management processes.

TCO Report – NAS File Tiering

Every organization is under pressure to meet the exponential growth in demand for file storage capacity. Surveys show, however, that 60% or more of data on Tier 1 storage is either dormant or rarely used. Organizations can now achieve significant savings by moving that inactive content to a secondary storage tier.

While the concept of storage tiering is well known, it has not been widely adopted in the past due to various limitations. New storage technologies now overcome those limitations, making tiering an attractive option to reclaim capacity on Tier 1 storage systems and reduce backup costs and time requirements — often resulting in overall file storage cost savings of 50%.

Of particular note, new solutions now enable these savings with zero impact on user data access.

In this paper, we compare the total cost of ownership (TCO) of traditional NAS to the TCO of traditional NAS augmented by file tiering with Cloudian object storage.

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.

TCO Report – Cloudian HyperFile

A new class of storage promises to revolutionize file data management with scalability, simplicity and cost benefits that together represent a step function improvement from traditional NAS.

With unstructured data growth rates exceeding 50% per year, the need for such a solution is clear. Files have become more numerous, much larger and they’re being retained and accessed over longer periods of time. For 30 years now, Network Attached Storage (NAS) has been the go-to technology for file storage, but the changing nature of data is straining the ability of NAS to scale, deliver adequate performance, and do so economically.

Cloudian HyperFile offers a new approach that addresses both the scalability and cost concerns. It is the first to combine traditional NAS features with a limitlessly scalable, fully modular storage environment that reduces CAPEX costs by 2/3 while simplifying management and eliminating storage silos.

Cloud ERP for Job Shops and Manufacturers

In the face of growing competition and a challenging business climate, many job shops and manufacturers are looking for ways to reduce costs, streamline operations, and improve the bottom line. Implementing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a proven solution for running a business efficiently and effectively. Yet, a large percentage of manufacturers have held back from implementing an ERP system due to high initial costs, long implementation times, and competing demands for time and resources.

This paper describes how the Software as a Service (SaaS) model (more commonly known as ‘the cloud’) delivers financial, implementation, and operational benefits to job shops and manufacturers. It also details cloud deployed Epicor ERP meets the needs of job shops and manufacturers. Job shops and manufacturers can leverage Epicor ERP—and cloud technology to ‘punch above their weight’—increasing effectiveness.

Five Steps for Uncovering Data at Risk for GDPR

Enacted in April 2016, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been called the most important change in data privacy regulation in decades. Now, it’s sweeping regulations are being enforced by the EU.

GDPR introduces a fundamental change in the relationship between businesses of all sizes and personal data regarding EU citizens that is collected and stored regardless of where your business – or data- is maintained. And, GDPR isn’t just an IT problem. It impacts risk, privacy, security and compliance teams, all of whom may be audited.

Want to get started with GDPR assessment? IBM Security Guardium Analyzer is a purpose-built, SaaS-based tool that can help with all of the above. Available in the IBM Cloud, Guardium Analyzer scans your data – on-premises or cloud– and its next generation classification engine delivers efficient scans that produces a visual guide prioritizing which data might be at risk. Guardium Analyzer shows you the potential vulnerabilities tied to the databases scanned as well as which sensitive data that you need to protect and begin the remediation process.
