Hybrid cloud infrastructure provides low-cost backup

For many hybrid cloud infrastructure adopters, backup is the most obvious use case. And for good reason - the cloud is a low-cost option that can easily scale to house large backup images.

IT Can Now Deliver What Their "Consumers" Want: CTERA 5.0 Enables Enterprise Distributed Data

End-user mobility and the fast growth of data are increasingly pushing file storage and sharing into the cloud. Sharing data through an easy-to-use cloud service keeps globe-hopping users happy and productive, while technologies like cloud storage gateways enable IT to govern across on-premise and cloud storage as a single infrastructure. However, the big goals of these two groups often crash like fast ships on ramming speed. What end-users want as consumers is fast, easy, and always-on while IT requires fully secure, controlled, and ultimately cost-effective. This imbalance creates challenges: concentrate on end-user usability and governance suffers; concentrate on governance and usability diminishes.

How can live files and business data move with users, and IT control and governance follow the data wherever it goes? Globally mobile end-users need to efficiently access and share files, while corporate IT needs to govern and secure those files. Both parties look hopefully to the cloud to provide the mobility and scalability necessary for this level of file collaboration and control. They are right about cloud mobility and scalability but external cloud services can’t by definition provide IT governed data services and private clouds solutions to-date haven’t exactly been on par with the consumer-grade versions publicly available. End users today demand IT provide services like EFSS that are as good or better then the free services everyone has on their smartphones and laptops, and if IT can’t, end-users will end-run around IT.

The solution isn’t hard to dream up: create a single strategic control point for enterprise-level data mobility and governance that works across enterprise cloud-like services. Sadly, thinking about something does not make it so. Certainly central control is common for specific computing domains. Storage makers create central management consoles for the systems under their control. Virtualization makers create central management for hundreds and thousands of VMs. Backup makers create central control for data replication across remote sites. And the components specific to sharing and protecting file data are common: enterprise file share and sync (EFSS) and cloud gateways. But what has been missing up until now is central control over all those processes in a simple unified manner, especially when supporting a distributed workforce.

CTERA cloud storage gateways have provided file-based protection and mobility since the company stepped onto the cloud-based management scene. Now a major new release further supports and enables integrated end-to-end file and data services. CTERA’s 5.0 version of its Enterprise Data Services Platform powerfully brings together several key capabilities that help IT easily deliver the distributed services their users want and need while ensuring full governance and control. The platform combines their highly available NAS gateway for core and edge services with advanced EFSS and backup. Their seamless integration cements separate solutions into a cohesive CTERA platform. In this report we will examine CTERA 5.0 and its balanced benefits for both user happiness and productivity, and IT governance and control.

Virtual Instruments WorkloadCentral: Free Cloud-Based Resource for Understanding Workload Behavior

Virtual Instruments, the company created by the combination of the original Virtual Instruments and Load DynamiX, recently made available a free cloud-based service and community called WorkloadCentral. The service is designed to help storage professionals understand workload behavior and improve their knowledge of storage performance. Most will find valuable insights into storage performance with the simple use of this free service. For those who want to get a deeper understanding of workload behavior over time, or evaluate different storage products to determine which one is right for their specific application environment, or optimize their storage configurations for maximum efficiency, they can buy additional Load DynamiX Enterprise products available from the company.
The intent with WorkloadCentral is to create a web-based community that can share information about a variety of application workloads, perform workload analysis and create workload simulations. In an industry where workload sharing has been almost absent, this service will be well received by storage developers and IT users alike.
Read on to understand where WorkloadCentral fits into the overall application and storage performance spectrum...
