Migrating Your Cloud? A “Lift and Shift” Could Be Holding You Back

This article is adapted from one that was originally published in Techerati by our CEO, David Safaii. Click here to view the article in its original form. Millions of companies around the globe are in the process of moving legacy applications and VMs from virtualized infrastructure to the cloud. While the two infrastructures share many similarities, clouds are fundamentally different than on-premises infrastructure (and, in many ways, they are better). Despite this, many IT teams are…

3 Best Practices for Optimizing Your OpenStack Backup and Restore Operations

In the years since the emergence of cloud infrastructure, native workload backup and recovery has become an increasingly pressing issue. Public and private clouds are now pervasive in modern IT stacks, making efficient workload backup and restore operations a necessity in order to safeguard against extreme data loss (disasters) as well as everyday data loss and mobility issues (migration between tenant workload spaces, upgrades, etc). Here are a couple of simple ways to ensure that your OpenStack…

Improving Recovery Time Objectives with Savvy Backup Strategies

Planning for disaster scenarios that could compromise your company's digital operations is critical to protecting business continuity and managing risk. RTO and RPO are benchmarks against which your company can measure its disaster readiness. Recovery point objectives (RPO) establish the volume of data that an organization can afford to lose. Recovery time objectives (RTO), in turn, establish the minimum time that an organization can wait before the completion of its data recovery process. Also referred to…

The Power of Incremental-Forever Snapshot Backup Tools

When it comes to data protection in any company, big or small, investing both time and capital into building a comprehensive data protection strategy is complicated, time-consuming, and often risky. It’s not just a process battle, it’s also a communication battle: all stakeholders should have an idea of how long a full restore of information will take, with agreed-upon RPOs and RTOs. Of course, backing up data is the primary and most critical process when…

The Lingering Effects of Data Loss

As computers have grown increasingly sophisticated, businesses are now able to store and retain more digital data than ever before. But with those technological gains come many new risks, including data loss. Days, months, or even years of carefully-constructed databases can be wiped out in an instant, leaving IT departments and C-suite executives alike scrambling to stay in compliance — or even in operation. While the immediate effects of data loss are typically quite obvious,…

Decentralizing the Centralized Cloud with Edge Computing

In the same way that cloud computing revolutionized data centers via unprecedented access to a pool of centralized resources, so too will edge computing revolutionize data processing... by decentralizing it again. Of course, there's more to it than that. Edge computing is really about moving some processing back to individual devices — or near them, at least — in order to reduce latency and optimize load. This reduces management headaches and limits the need for devices to…

How Scripting OpenStack Backups Cripples Your Recovery Efforts

Organizations in the throes of an OpenStack deployment often come to the realization that there is no viable data protection options for OpenStack. As production dates approach and SLA requirements loom, many teams resort to scripting OpenStack backups as a stopgap solution. This kind of approach is deeply flawed and makes workload recovery nearly impossible. Here's why. An (Extremely Brief) History of OpenStack & Data Protection Nearly a decade ago, when OpenStack was first released,…
