EVault from i365 – Lab Validating EVault Endpoint Protection

In this Taneja Group Technology Validation exercise, we put an endpoint protection solution – EVault Endpoint Protection, a solution from i365, a Seagate company – to the test. Could the recently released, completely hosted (on top of the elastic Microsoft Windows Azure cloud) EVault Endpoint Protection suite be as quick to deploy and easy to use as i365 claims? To find out, we put the suite through the paces at a remote site – in essence simulating exactly what an EVault customer would see and do when they sign up for this cloud service. What did we find? Our conclusion is that it is easier and faster to protect the business with EVault Endpoint Protection than with anything else we’ve seen.

Seagate’s Blueprint to a Brighter Future

On July 11, 2013 I attended Seagate’s first Cloud Summit where select analysts had been invited for a day of presentations and interaction on the topic of cloud. It was the first time I had spent any length of time with Seagate executives. Frankly, we have taken hard disk drives for granted in this industry. At least as analysts, Taneja Group has focused above disk drives, assuming the presence of the drive, with its rotational speed, seek time and latency and certain amount of IOPs. But our analysis has been mostly at the array level, and above. It is not that we didn’t recognize that designing and building a disk drive requires more technology and manufacturing finesse than almost anything else in the storage industry but we have always been able to assume the presence of disk drive that simply works. As such we have always taken Seagate for granted. All that changed for me after my visit to San Francisco.

Industry experts see solid-state drive (SSD) vendor OCZ Technology Group Inc.'s bankruptcy and pending asset sale to Toshiba as a continuation of the consolidation that has gone on throughout the past year rather than a bad omen for the flash business.
