OneCloud Software: DR For the Masses

With the advent of server virtualization, many adopters erroneously think that disaster recovery (DR) is a problem of the past. They cite the ability of the hypervisors to replace the two most common yet imperfect DR choices: 1) infrastructure replication to a secondary replica site – fast to restore but very expensive, or 2) economical tape backup with off-site long-term storage – economical but slow to recover from.

The reality is that while server virtualization has certainly helped the industry get closer to simpler and less expensive DR products, DR still remains one of the major challenges for IT. This is especially true for applications that fall somewhere between the most mission critical where RTOs and RPOs of a few seconds is needed (and cost is often no object) and those that find RTOs and RPOs of a day or two to be adequate. Today, DR products available for these “intermediate” applications are few and far between, especially when overall cost of DR is considered.  

The missing piece so far has been a cost-effective DR solution with excellent RTO and RPO for the majority of business applications -- without requiring a secondary site. OneCloud steps into the gap by replacing that expensive site with the hyper-scale public cloud. This Profile will discuss how OneCloud works to extend the primary data center onto the cloud, and how this impacts the ease and speed of VM recovery.

Manage Unstructured Data: File Analysis at Scale

Active data is relatively visible and manageable on production systems but the longer data ages, the less visible it becomes to users and processes.

Hyperscale Cloud Vendors vs. Cloud-Enabled Data Protection Vendors

Cost alone should not be the deciding factor when deciding between a hyperscale cloud vendor or a cloud-enabled data protection provider.

Hyperscale Public Cloud vs Value-Add Cloud from DP/DR Vendors: Which is Better?

Hyperscale clouds get all of the press, but is it really a case of “go big or go home”? The giant cloud providers offer great prices on bulk storage but the cloud can act as much more than just a backup destination. There’s a lot of value residing within the individual cloud offerings of the data protection vendors, with an entire spectrum of services ranging from standard backup storage to Managed Archiving to Disaster Recovery as a Service. And more. 

Join us on this panel discussion to learn about what’s available and how to take full advantage of the range of cloud services offered so that you can precisely match vendors’ offerings to your business needs.

Emerging Technologies in Storage: Disaggregation of Storage Function

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Disaggregation of traditional storage functions. A major trend within IT is to leverage server and server-side resources to the maximum extent possible. Hyper-scale architectures have led to the commoditization of servers and flash technology is now ubiquitous and is often times most affordable as a server-side component. Underutilized compute resources exist in many datacenters as the growth in CPU power has outpaced other infrastructure elements. One current hot trend — software-defined-storage—advocates collocating all storage functions to the server side but also relies on local, directly attached storage to create a shared pool of storage. That limits the server’s flexibility in terms of form factor and compute scalability. 
Now some vendors are exploring a new, optimally balanced approach. New forms of storage are emerging that first smartly modularize storage functions, and then intelligently host components in different layers of the infrastructure. With the help of a lively panel of experts we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approach to intelligently distributing storage functions can bring about better customer business outcomes.
