Cloud Backup Expert Tips: Uncertain Times Cast a Spotlight on Business Continuity

Across the globe, organizations of all shapes and sizes are faced with unprecedented challenges. The realities of the current situation have caused us all to react quickly and decisively, from mandating work-from-home policies and restricting non essential employee travel, to canceling large events and postponing business initiatives.

During this time, the most important thing is that we stay healthy and protect the health of everyone around us. But beyond a greater focus on maintaining the well being of employees, families, and customers, these changes have cast a spotlight on how prepared companies are for crises. Once again, the lesson is that business continuity plans should be tested and reviewed early and often.

Here at OwnBackup, your data protection is top of mind at all times. But given our current climate, it’s more important than ever to review how backup and recovery of your organization’s data fits into your business continuity planning.

Let’s examine the four reasons why a Salesforce backup and recovery solution is more crucial than ever:

1. A global crisis reinforces the need for a data recovery plan.

Few of us could have predicted we’d be where we are now. It serves as yet another reminder that the unexpected can happen at any time. On a lesser but still significant scale, this is also true of data loss and corruption. User-inflicted data loss happens, often unexpectedly, so it is important to have a data backup and recovery plan.

For many industries, including healthcare, pharma, and manufacturing, losing data is not an option, especially now when these industries are being stretched to their limits like never before.

As you construct your data recovery plan, it’s critical to make sure that it’s a comprehensive one. What makes a solution comprehensive is one that has intuitive data identification tools and fast recovery times in a data loss scenario. You should also be sure that the solution meets your company’s security and compliance requirements, and provides accessible, reliable backups of all of your Salesforce data, metadata, AND attachments.

2. A remote workforce creates new challenges, including for your data.

Over the next few months, you’re going to be hearing A LOT about the pros and cons of working remotely, and how to do it most effectively. We’re not here to give you advice on that front. But we do want to point out how having a fully remote workforce could potentially put your Salesforce data at higher risk.

According to one study, 86% of business executives agreed data breaches are more likely to occur when employees are working out of office. Coupled with the fact that 88% of companies have no comprehensive backup and recovery strategy according to the 2020 State of Salesforce Data Protection survey results, these statistics are especially concerning.

Designed to mimic the office experience from a different location, remote employees have the ability to access corporate servers, customer data, email, databases, and the cloud all from their laptop or mobile device. However, logging in to any of these networks without the company’s private internet connection increases the risk for that employee experiencing a data security incident and for information to be compromised.

Just as remote workers can mitigate these risks by using security measures like VPN and two-factor authentication, employers have the responsibility to implement an enterprise-wide Salesforce backup and recovery strategy for when a data loss occurs.

3. Less direct oversight and control can lead to data errors.

Beyond the security concerns mentioned above, there are also other, less obvious risks that come with not being together in one place.

For example, let’s say your organization has multiple Salesforce administrators who all sit together while in the office. Before any of them make an important change within the platform, they are likely communicating those changes to each other in real time.

When those same employees work remotely, that communication chain is delayed or sometimes non-existent for workers who haven’t been trained on remote work communication procedures. Yes, email, text, and messaging platforms can help, but they can never replace that instant feedback. You can imagine the increased risk of errors as admins or other Salesforce users duplicate or bypass certain tasks simply over a lack of communication.

Having a proactive solution in place is critical. This way, you don’t have to rely on another user to know when data is changed, deleted, or corrupted. Plus, you can get regular updates on your backup progress for further peace of mind.

4. With other projects on hold, there’s more time to focus on new initiatives.

As we all do our part to follow “social distancing” guidelines, in-person business meetings, conferences, events, video shoots, etc. have come to a halt. While some of these can still be held virtually, many still require face-to-face interaction. For OwnBackup, several Salesforce events we had planned to attend have been cancelled or postponed, so we are looking into new (digital) ways to connect with customers and prospects.

What initiatives has your organization been putting off that you could tackle now? A Salesforce data backup strategy tends to be one of those things that people say they will “get to eventually,” or “when I have time.” Well, now might be that time.

Moving forward together

We understand that this is a challenging situation and there are lots of things you may be concerned about. At OwnBackup, we are doing everything possible to make sure your Salesforce data isn’t one of them.

For our current customers, this means operating without any service disruptions. OwnBackup runs on AWS servers across 10+ data centers distributed across the globe. In addition, we apply industry-leading security measures including real-time and near real-time replication of data, secure encrypted connections, multiple copies of data distributed across data centers, and global 24/7 monitoring.

As a cloud-native company with a global team and flexible workforce, we are prepared to manage all business opportunities and challenges virtually. We will continue to have open channels for timely communications with our customers, employees, and other stakeholders.

Should you have any concerns about your account during this time, OwnBackup’s Customer Success team is available 24×7.

For everyone else, we are ready to help you reduce your risk of data loss and maintain business continuity. To learn more about OwnBackup and our solutions, click here, or request a demo below.

Institution des Eaux de la Montagne Noire, a water management institution of the Lauragais region, France, chooses NAKIVO Backup & Replication to ensure continuity of its services while saving money on VM backup

Sparks, NV – March 23, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that Institution des Eaux de la Montagne Noire (IEMN) has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Institution des Eaux de la Montagne Noire (IEMN) is a water management institution in southwest France that develops and manages the hydraulic system of the Montagne Noire mountain range. The IEMN’s mission is to produce a sufficient quantity of quality drinking water for municipalities in the region, which in turn distribute that water to their inhabitants. In addition, IEMN provides quality water to meet agricultural irrigation needs in Lauragais. The institution is also responsible for the storage and transportation of water resources.

IEMN’s IT infrastructure consists of two separate sites, five physical servers and 36 virtual machines. Virtual machines store various databases, web servers, web applications, Microsoft Active Directory servers, printing servers and other critical documents. To ensure the continuity of its vital services to all the communities across the Lauragais region, IEMN has to rely on backup and recovery. Time is of essence if a disaster or an outage occurs in the data center and the institution has not time to spare on reinstalling servers or recreating data. Only a reliable VM backup solution designed specifically for virtualized servers can guarantee that IEMN has continuous access to its critical data and applications.

Until recently, IEMN was protecting its data using another VM backup solution available on the market. Since IEMN is being supported by the governmental funding, budget is always a vital concern. “We were not satisfied with the price that the previous vendor offered us. The main criteria for us was honestly the price point because we are very price sensitive. That is why we decided to find a more affordable software that would meet our needs,” says Victor Mendes, System and Network Administrator at IEMN.

IEMN chose to deploy NAKIVO Backup & Replication to ensure continuous availability of its services. The decision was made based on the software’s comprehensive set of functionalities available at an affordable price. NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers virtual, physical and cloud data protection, in addition to Microsoft Office 365 backup and backup to tape. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can also be installed on a variety of NAS devices, including QNAP, which IEMN already owned.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication offered us integration with our QNAP TS-983XU-RP and we were amazed at how simple and fast the whole process has been so far. Simplicity is the main advantage of NAKIVO Backup & Replication over all other vendors. We now have a more affordable backup appliance, that is simple to manage and cost-efficient,” explains Victor Mendes.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, IEMN enjoys the benefits of forever-incremental backup and network acceleration functionality. “With network acceleration, VM backup speed is increased and network load is reduced. Plus, backup jobs are completed at a faster rate since the amount of data that is transferred over the network is reduced,” says Victor Mendes. “With forever-incremental backup, IEMN can take advantage of the VMware Changed Block Tracking (CBT) technology that identifies changed data and transfer only those changes to the backup repository. This functionality increases VM backup speed and saves storage space. Previously, a VM backup of our entire infrastructure was impossible to perform daily. Now, VM backups are done every day and that is awesome.”

With instant file and object recovery, IEMN recovers entire files and Microsoft Exchange objects within minutes. Instant object recovery for Microsoft Exchange makes it possible to recover emails directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, without having to recover an entire VM first. You can recover lost, deleted or corrupted files/objects to their original location, download them, or even send them to your email. Finally, IEMN takes advantage of Microsoft Active Directory integration offered by NAKIVO Backup & Replication to align the software with the institution’s security policy and provide admin and guest access to NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication installed on a QNAP NAS offers IEMN ease-of-use combined with monetary and performance savings. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, IEMN can now back up its entire IT infrastructure daily. Moreover, the institution has the possibility of recovering entire files and objects near instantly. Previously, Microsoft Exchange recovery was only possible via a third party, while now the functionality is supported by NAKIVO Backup & Replication. “Our entire experience with NAKIVO Backup & Replication has been great so far, as we achieved simplicity and improved performance overall. NAKIVO Backup & Replication definitely saved time and money for IEMN,” says Victor Mendes.

The JetStream Software and Cloudian Joint Solution Reduces Infrastructure Costs by 60 Percent

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 24, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — JetStream Software Inc., an innovator in cloud-native disaster recovery, today announced that Enterprise Networking Solutions, Inc. (ENS-Inc), a premier managed services provider (MSP), is the first to deploy JetStream DR on Cloudian, a cloud-native disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution built on JetStream DR and Cloudian® object storage technologies.

The JetStream DR on Cloudian solution provides continuous data protection (CDP), disaster recovery (DR), and business continuity (BC) for VMware vSphere environments. It protects VMware virtual machines with the CDP capabilities of JetStream DR along with the technical and economic advantages of the Cloudian HyperStore® object storage platform.

JetStream DR is specifically designed to provide the software infrastructure for a VMware-based DR service offering from an MSP or cloud service provider (CSP). Similarly, Cloudian HyperStore is the preferred object storage platform for hundreds of MSPs and CSPs globally. Together, the two technologies provide the foundation for a powerful, cost-effective, cloud-native DRaaS offering.

The Problem With Traditional Disaster Recovery Services
Traditional DRaaS offerings often require data center infrastructure that is rigid, expensive and inefficiently utilized. Many DRaaS solutions offer an alternative to on-premises failover, but when they are based on the same on-premises DR technology, they cannot realize the full technical and business advantages of the cloud: multi-tenancy, scalability, agility and cost-efficiency.

“Incorporating object storage into a backup service is relatively straightforward and, today, is commonly supported by most data protection vendors,” said Tom Critser, co-founder and CEO, JetStream Software. “But service providers haven’t previously had a CDP solution that continuously replicates data directly into an object store and uses the object store exclusively to maintain all recovery assets, including the recovery of system information, network configurations, and ongoing protection policies. That’s a very different kind of challenge that JetStream DR on Cloudian uniquely addressed.”

A Better Solution for MSPs and CSPs
JetStream DR on Cloudian is designed from the ground up to empower MSPs and CSPs to deliver DR services to their customers with near-zero recovery point objectives (RPO) — and to do so in a way that realizes the full value of cloud object storage.

“We were already a Cloudian customer, so when we learned that we could use JetStream DR to deliver a DRaaS offering based on Cloudian HyperStore, it made perfect sense to us,” said Paul Smitham, president at ENS-Inc. “JetStream DR on Cloudian enables us to use our data center resources with greater efficiency and agility than any DR technology we’ve used in the past. Just as importantly, it gives us a significant new business opportunity to develop, with technologies that we know and trust.

“Compared to other DR/CDP solutions that we’ve deployed previously, the infrastructure costs of JetStream DR on Cloudian will be 60 percent less, which means we can deliver an enterprise-grade DR service to our customers that’s more economical for them to consume and more profitable for us. It really is a win-win.”

Details of Differentiation: Integrated yet Decoupled
Other approaches to data protection with object storage typically use the object store as a “cold data tier” that is tightly coupled to the DR application running continuously in the recovery site. In contrast, JetStream DR on Cloudian replicates all necessary recovery data to the object store, which can be completely decoupled from the DR software in the recovery site.

The object store maintains the protected virtual machines, their applications, all their data (updated continuously) and configuration information, as well as all DR metadata so that VMs recovered from the object store are completely configured, operational and continuously protected from the moment they are recovered. The VMs can be deployed into any runtime vSphere environment in any location.

Key Benefit: Agility
For ENS-Inc, the agility of JetStream DR on Cloudian means that a customer’s VMs running in San Jose can replicate data into a Cloudian HyperStore platform hosted in Sacramento, and in response to a disaster, the VMs can be recovered from Sacramento into ENS-Inc’s vSphere environment in Reno, with the Cloudian object store in Sacramento continuing to protect the workloads without interruption.

If desired, once the customer’s San Jose site is back up and operational, the VMs can return to their original data center without disturbance to the running applications and their continuous protection. To support this level of agility, ENS-Inc has deployed a deterministic optical backbone connecting data centers in nine locations across the western United States.

Key Benefit: Cost Efficiency
JetStream DR on Cloudian maintains all protected VMs, data, configuration information, and recovery metadata in the object store. During a failover, everything needed for complete recovery of the protected environment — including its ongoing protection — is rehydrated directly from the object store.

For ENS-Inc, this means that the recovery VMware vSphere environment is put into use only in the event of a failover. The compute, storage and network resources needed for the customer’s continued operations are provisioned on demand. With the features and performance of Cloudian HyperStore, the recovery time objective (RTO) falls comfortably within the customer’s service level agreement (SLA).

Do the Math: DR Total Cost of Ownership Calculator
JetStream Software has developed a DR total cost of ownership (TCO) calculator that compares the cost of infrastructure for DR services delivered through a number of different methods, including other DR software technologies, federated hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) clusters, and VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM). The calculator is available from JetStream Software at www.jetstreamsoft.com/cloud-disaster-recovery-cost-calculator/ (registration required).

Intact rapidly delivers edge computing apps with automated no-code Azure cloud services

Tallahassee, FL – March 24, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Intact, a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (‘CSP’) Authorized Azure Government and Corporate Direct Reseller, today announced the launch of its ReAccess® and PowerLine™ cloud services for government and corporate enterprises. Intact’s solutions simplify application migration to Microsoft Azure cloud services and support the emerging, unprecedented demand for sustainable, stable and secure work-at-home solutions.

ReAccess is a Microsoft Windows 10 application, catalog-listed and certified for deployment via Microsoft Azure AppSource and Microsoft Windows Store. ReAccess enables the recreation of existing database applications, as a fully compliant Cosmos DB application in Microsoft Azure, in as little as two hours (no-code).

Today, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a strain on the Internet system because of the exponential growth in the number of people working from home. Applications normally used while at work are not accessible from home without specialized corporate VPNs (virtual private networks). Microsoft Access is an example of a common user app made unavailable by this crisis. ReAccess is an edge computing application that runs securely and directly on the user’s authenticated device. While working at home, users can access their ReAccess applications in the cloud. Connectivity to the cloud is handled automatically by ReAccess allowing end users to work offline. ReAccess (1) reduces strain on bandwidth, (2) alleviates VPN requirements, and (3) ensures compliance with security and policies.

PowerLine is an enterprise grade cloud service managing automated Microsoft Azure cloud application delivery. PowerLine enables rapid and cost-effective application design and delivery for database, storage, compute, security and network services. PowerLine is always on and available to use without configuration, ensuring data is always secured with encryption at rest. Big data and analytics are easy because they are services integrated with Office 365 and Microsoft Power Platform. PowerLine is certified and deployed in Global (Commercial) Cloud and U.S. Government Cloud (Impact Level 5), as standard.

Windows 7 operating system reached its end-of-extended-support on January 14, 2020. As a result, support ended for earlier versions of Microsoft Access and other database application software (e.g. VB6, FoxPro and D-base). Legacy applications like Microsoft Access are unstable in Windows 10. ReAccess with PowerLine cloud services solves the legacy application issues. ReAccess business applications provide reliable, user-friendly, and secure work-at-home solutions.

“COVID-19 is a unique global moment, forcing many systems and supply chains to re-evaluate how they do business. Businesses are looking for solutions to allow them to continue to operate their business and serve their customers,” said J. Larry Aultman, CEO of Intact. “This is an inflection point in many ways. Technological solutions that are now on the rise will allow telecommuting to become the norm, even in agencies and businesses that previously thought it impossible. Intact is pleased to lead the way to a truly secure remote office with our ReAccess and PowerLine solutions, which will prioritize essential workforces. Corporate enterprises with business-critical issues can employ our solutions to establish a work from home routine for the entire workforce simultaneously, where they were never able to before. We are excited by the prospect of helping so many essential organizations resolve their critical work from home hurdles.”

Intact is a Microsoft Gold Partner, Cloud Solution Provider (‘CSP’) Authorized Azure Government and Corporate Direct Reseller with a 39-year history of cutting-edge global industrial automation and computing systems. Today, the company is using its history to build the future, incorporating automation, artificial intelligence, and its no-code technology to solve wide-spread modern problems in legacy data systems and the modern workplace (work-at-home). The combination of ReAccess and PowerLine cloud services brings Access and other databases into a secure and resilient Microsoft Azure cloud, enabling compliance, access to data and fungible information to the enterprise.

ReAccess and PowerLine are available from Microsoft sources, partners, and directly from Intact for commercial and government use. U.S. federal, state, and local governments may procure through several contract vehicles, including GSA and the CenturyLink Alliant 2 federal GWAC (IDIQ) contract. ReAccess and PowerLine are also available as COTS under FAR-12.

Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “With a sharp increase in office employees working from home in unsecured networks, there is a sharp increase in demand for secure emails services and document management tools such as ours, like DigitalSafe, Custodia and PrivaTalk Messenger. The demand from the USA is starting to increase sharply and we are working around the clock with our distributor in order to prepare them for the surge in demand they are facing for identity theft protection and secure cloud services.

Hosts March 26 webinar on how to manage data risk across a remote workforce

Minneapolis, MN — Mar 19, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider threat detection, investigation and response, today announced it enhanced its data security solution, adding new capabilities that pinpoint suspicious data activity among remote employees. To speed the detection and investigation process, the company’s new dashboard features highlight remote employees who have the riskiest file activity. They also give immediate insights into the use of unsanctioned cloud sync systems and websites.

“The way we work is changing due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The number of employees logging in from home is surging along with their reliance on collaborative technologies. Employees are sharing files, Slacking and messaging colleagues to get their work done,” said Joe Payne, Code42′s president and CEO. “Suddenly security teams are on the hook to manage a spike in data activity that now lives outside their typical network infrastructure. What they had visibility into last week is invisible this week. To help organizations during this time, we are offering them an organizational-wide view of data risks posed by their remote workforce at no charge.”

The new remote employee capabilities:

  • Pinpoint remote employees whose file activity represents the greatest risk.
  • Detect unauthorized usage of Dropbox, iCloud, Box, OneDrive and Google Drive.
  • Provide an organization-wide view of browser upload activity, including attachments to personal email, and uploads to personal cloud sync systems.
  • Alert security teams to users who are executing risky file activity based on file type, count and size.
  • Offer historical user activity profiles to speed insider threat investigations.

“In these disruptive times, security teams need to become stewards of their organizations’ collaborative culture and develop practices that enhance employee productivity,” said Vijay Ramanathan, Code42′s senior vice president of product innovation. “If companies want to use Slack and Box and OneDrive, it is imperative that they wrap a layer of security around that sharing technology to detect when employees share beyond the organization.”

The new remote employee capabilities are part of Code42′s broader data security solution. Designed to accelerate incident response for insider threats, the solution provides reliable data risk signal without requiring complex data classification.

BOCA RATON, FLA – March 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Newtek Business Services Corp., (NASDAQ: NEWT), an internally managed business development company (“BDC”), today announced that it’s working together with its employees and portfolio companies to deal with the current challenging environment created by the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Last week, Newtek successfully tested and enacted its Business Continuity plan, without any impact to its business operations. Newtek and its portfolio companies are fully operational and servicing its borrowers and customers without interruption.

Newtek and its portfolio companies employees’ health and safety are of paramount importance, as is providing the service and support our borrowers and customers have come to expect. The Company has been able to affect social distancing in our offices by moving to an odd- and even-day work schedule. In addition, as a result of the prior planning by the Company with the assistance of Newtek Technology Solutions and IPM, the Company is fully able to support any of our employees’ need to work from home for extended periods of time, leveraging our secure VPN infrastructure and cloud-based phone system to access our systems and ensure that customer data is secure. The Company has been and will continue to be diligent in monitoring this evolving situation and take any necessary and appropriate actions to keep its employees safe and healthy, while also ensuring our business operations remain fully functional.

Barry Sloane, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Our referrals across the board, particularly our government loan program referrals have increased eight times to ten times in the last two weeks. In addition, our inbound call volume has increased by several multiples per day. We currently have the capacity to fund government-guaranteed loans to assist with the recovery of the small business community and the U.S. economy. We plan on working closely with the Small Business Administration to point people in the right direction for disaster recovery. Important to note is the geographic and industry diversification of our SBA loan portfolio. Specifically, our SBA loan portfolio comprises up to 35% in the four most densely populated states of New York, California, Texas and Florida.”

Mr. Sloane continued, “We look forward to working with clientele to ensure the health of our businesses in local communities in all 50 states. We are hopeful that the Bill that Senator Rubio has proposed, which could have many potential benefits to the small business community including up to a 90% government-guarantee on SBA loans, could support the U.S. economy and recovery time from the Coronavirus. Furthermore, our portfolio company (Newtek Merchant Solutions and Mobil Money) payment processing volume has been down approximately 10% since the beginning of the month, and we do expect further temporary deterioration in this business.”

Mr. Sloane concluded, “Our interests are closely aligned with our shareholders, and we will continue to work through the ongoing impacts of Coronavirus, and provide the investment community with material updates as we navigate this challenging time.”

Ultrastar high-capacity storage platform deployed to improve reliability and meet global capacity needs

LONDON, UK – March 19, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Western Digital Corp. (NASDAQ: WDC) today announced that Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, has selected its Ultrastar® Data60 and Ultrastar Data102 high capacity hybrid storage platforms, in order to meet capacity demands and support the business’ long-term expansion plans, efficiently and cost-effectively. Acronis turned to technology partner DIAWAY OÜ to design a scalable architecture that could be deployed across its 14 global data centers and they selected Western Digital.

To keep pace with constantly growing data demands, Acronis needed a cost-efficient storage solution that could deliver rock-solid reliability and data protection, as it adds capacity over time.

Acronis has completed phase one of the planned overhaul, upgrading most of its worldwide storage infrastructure with Western Digital Ultrastar platforms. Its global environment now totals more than 220 petabytes (PB) of capacity, with more to be added. By investing in Western Digital’s Ultrastar platforms, Acronis has reduced its storage acquisition and operational costs, and simplified the management of its vast, global storage footprint. Having a standardized global storage architecture on Western Digital also means capacity planning is much easier and costs are more predictable.

Alex Beyk, director of global technical operations at Acronis said, “As a company, our growth depends on our ability to offer customers efficient and reliable cyber protection solutions at an affordable price. With DIAWAY, we have an integrator that truly understands our needs, and with Western Digital, we’re getting a storage solution that we can trust, with a total cost of ownership that other storage vendors could not match. Standardizing on Ultrastar platforms for our global storage infrastructure was an easy decision to make.”

Ultrastar Data60 and Data102 are high-density, high-capacity 12Gb/s SAS JBODs that can be configured with up to 60 and 102 hard disk drives (HDDs) and up to 24 of those drives configurable to solid-state drives (SSDs) in a compact, 4U form factor, with up to 900TB and 1.5PB raw capacity1. These hybrid storage platforms are extremely dense JBODs which provide the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations for balancing capacity, performance, and cost. Both are key elements of next-generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems.

Due to Western Digital’s unique silicon-to-systems capabilities, Ultrastar Data platforms provide the long-term reliability that Acronis’ customers demand. They include innovative features like IsoVibe™ vibration isolation technology to help maintain consistent performance under heavy workloads, and ArcticFlow™ thermal zone cooling technology, providing an efficient cooling solution that enhances drive reliability.

“We make every effort to provide our customers with great products and services, and we work just as hard to make sure they are selecting the most appropriate solutions to fit their needs,” said Alexander Ragel, managing partner at DIAWAY OÜ. “Western Digital is committed to providing modular and efficient platforms that we use when architecting multi-petabyte style environments for our customers. We believe that Western Digital is a perfect match for Acronis.”

Nigel Edwards, vice president of sales, EMEAI at Western Digital said: “We’re delighted that Acronis has standardised on storage from Western Digital in its data centres. When designing petabyte-scale environments, high-density, reliability and costs are all important factors. We’re committed to supporting Acronis’ data storage needs as it looks to expand its infrastructure around the world and grow its business.”

Kafkaesque, Fluree, Verif-y, CNCTED among launch partners and thousands of beta customers who have experienced enterprise-grade performance, durability, and security at fraction of price of traditional cloud providers

ATLANTA, GA – March 19, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Storj Labs today announced the formal production launch and general availability of its Tardigrade Decentralized Cloud Storage Service, the world’s first decentralized cloud object storage service backed by enterprise service level agreements (SLAs). Tardigrade offers decentralized cloud object storage that’s S3 compatible, highly performant, easily implemented, exceptionally durable, and highly available—all at a fraction of the price of traditional cloud providers. With end-to-end encryption and a zero-knowledge architecture, Tardigrade offers a superior security model.

During an extensive beta period with thousands of users and Storage Node Operators worldwide, Tardigrade achieved 100% file durability (with production SLA guarantees at 99.9999999% durability), performance on par or better than S3, and over 99.95 percent availability. To deliver this level of enterprise-grade service for Amazon S3-compatible object storage, while simultaneously leveraging the benefits of decentralization, is a first for the cloud storage industry. Combined with the superior privacy and inherent cross-geography redundancy that comes with decentralized storage, Tardigrade offers an attractive and economical alternative to traditional cloud storage. Users in need of object storage can now begin migrating their production data and backups to Tardigrade today.

“Decentralization benefits the cloud in many ways, and our first customers are already seeing how it improves security, privacy, and resiliency, while also lowering costs,” said Ben Golub, Storj Labs Executive Chairman. “As the first decentralized cloud storage service backed by enterprise SLAs, Tardigrade is poised to make a huge impact on the cloud for business of all types, our partners, customers, and end-users.”

Kafkaesque, Fluree, Verif-y, and CNCTED are among the launch partners to release Tardigrade connectors, which allow users on these platforms to easily start storing data on the decentralized cloud storage service. Through the Tardigrade Open Source Partner Program (OSPP), any open source project with a Tardigrade connector will receive a portion of the revenue generated by those users for their cloud storage bills. This helps address the challenges open source software companies have faced when trying to monetize workloads in the cloud.

“Many open source companies have attempted to address the threat of Amazon, Microsoft, and Google through new licensing models. We feel that the solution is not a new kind of license, but a new kind of cloud,” said John Gleeson, Storj Labs Vice President of Operations. “Over 80 percent of cloud workloads run on top of open source software, however these companies only receive a small percentage of the revenue. We’re pleased to launch Tardigrade into production so our open source partner program members can start generating revenue when their users store data in the cloud.”

Amazon S3-compatible applications can easily use the service by changing a few simple parameters. There is also an extensive library of bindings for some of the most popular coding languages, including Go, Android, C, .NET/Xamarin, Node.js, Swift, and Python. Developers and other cloud storage users who are interested in trying out Tardigrade can get started storing data on the platform by visiting the Tardigrade sign-up page. Users who sign up will receive 5GB of storage and bandwidth free for their first 30 days. After that, users can take advantage of Tardigrade’s affordable storage pricing, which is about half of cloud storage providers’ list prices. Through Tardigrade’s referral program, users can also earn additional credits for their bills. The platform currently has more than 19PB of available capacity, which is hosted by individuals and partners.

“Being able to monetize our underutilized infrastructure on the Storj Network is a huge opportunity for our team and our data centers,” said Frank Caruso, CloudSouth Founder and CEO. “The platform has been easy-to-use and we’re thrilled to see adoption growing, which increases revenue for the hard drive capacity we contribute to the network. The performance, security, and cost benefits delivered by Storj Labs and its Tardigrade service will help us better serve our clients.”

By using client-side encryption by default and spreading file pieces across 80 or more uncorrelated nodes, the Tardigrade platform is more secure and private than legacy cloud storage solutions, giving users the confidence that their data cannot be compromised or mined. The platform’s distributed architecture also makes it more resilient. While most cloud service providers charge a significant premium for providing cross-region support, files stored on Tardigrade are distributed across many regions by default, at no additional charge. Because any 29 of a file’s 80 pieces can be used to reconstitute a file, and since each of the 80 pieces is stored on statistically uncorrelated nodes (with separate power supplies, operators, equipment, and networks), the system is exceptionally resistant to outages or breaches, whether caused by natural disasters, human error, or malicious actors. Because the software behind Tardigrade is open source, users can be confident there are no backdoors or other hidden security vulnerabilities.

“To power the next generation of cloud applications, we need solutions that can stream in real-time, reliability store data, and scale to meet growing demands,” said Chris Bartholomew, Kafkaesque Founder. “Tardigrade combined with Kafkaesque delivers this kind of experience for our joint customers. We’re thrilled to be partnering and look forward to seeing what our users can achieve with decentralized cloud storage.”

With Tardigrade’s Open Source Partner Program, Storj Labs partners are compensated for the traffic they drive to the cloud. Many of these open source partners have seen centralized cloud storage providers use their software as a loss leader to drive business for their cloud infrastructure services. This cuts the creators of the open source software out of many revenue generation opportunities, making sustainability a challenge. Through Tardigrade connectors, usage is tracked and revenue is allocated when users of these open source software platforms store data in the cloud.

Partner Quotes

  • “Web3 solutions require infrastructure that is decentralized, secure, and private, while also delivering the service levels that enterprise users expect,” said Buck Flannigan, Fluree VP of Global Alliances. “It’s great to see a decentralized platform deliver performance on par with the large centralized cloud storage providers, while also lowering costs and improving security. We’re thrilled to be working with Storj Labs and have been impressed by its Tardigrade service. Combined with Fluree we will change how users manage, secure, and share data.”
  • “We chose Tardigrade because it offers great price performance ratio, native multi-region support, security, and privacy,” said Razvan Rosca, CNCTED CEO. “We have now migrated more than 100 TB of data and the whole process was painless. Support is legendary, with the entire Storj Labs team being friendly and helpful. We will continue moving data onto the service and are looking forward to onboarding our first users in the coming months.”
  • “User managed digital identity is a critical component of modern applications in the cloud and will give users increased security and privacy compared to centralized repositories. Partnering with Storj Labs to store static files is a critical component of our solution to enable users to own their own identity and data,” said Chad Peiper, Verif-y Chief Architect. “Together, we are giving application developers, companies, and individuals better control over their personally identifiable information and presence online, reducing the risk of corporate honeypots.”

These features, combined with ScaleDesktop’s managed onboarding and round-the-clock support offering, create a better value proposition and user experience than is possible with legacy VDI and remote desktop solutions.

“Performance and security are two of the biggest concerns for organizations as they consider a Virtual Desktop or Remote Access solution to support critical business operations,” said Orlando. “These table stakes are baked into the ScaleMatrix DNA, with our ScaleCloud design being highly focused on data integrity and resiliency. Our 24/7/365 Data Centers set the standard for overall security with two factor, biometric identity management and cabinet level access controls, which provide the ideal home for supporting ScaleDesktop instances nationwide.”

  • Solution providers attending XChange selected StorageCraft for boardroom excellence after watching multiple vendors share their channel stories.
  • StorageCraft recovery solutions for ransomware and other data disasters resonate with leading solution providers.

DRAPER, Utah – March 19, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that it was honored with the 2020 XCellence Award for Boardroom Execution at this year’s XChange conference, hosted by The Channel Company at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas.

Leading solution providers attending the XChange conference selected StorageCraft for this award in appreciation of its innovative products, services and partner programs. This award recognizes StorageCraft’s dedication to helping solution providers future-proof their business.

At its boardroom sessions, StorageCraft presented on how to win the fight against ransomware. According to the FBI, businesses and individuals lost $3.5 billion to ransomware and other cybercrimes in 20191 — and that’s based on reported incidents, meaning the actual number could be much higher. The StorageCraft recovery story resonated with solution providers at XChange because they see recovery as the highest priority within the data protection category.

StorageCraft products provide multiple means for recovery from ransomware and other disasters. In particular, StorageCraft ShadowXafe® data protection software features StorageCraft VirtualBoot™ technology—VirtualBoot enables users to perform recoveries onto a virtual platform in milliseconds. ShadowXafe also integrates with StorageCraft Cloud Services™, a cloud purpose-built for disaster recovery. Solution providers can replicate backups to StorageCraft Cloud Services, away from encrypting malware, and they can quickly recover data, systems, and even entire networks when a disaster strikes.

VirtualBoot is also available with StorageCraft OneXafe®, a converged data platform that unifies data protection and scale-out storage. OneXafe also protects data from ransomware with its continuous data protection (CDP) feature: immutable, space-optimized snapshots of data taken every 90 seconds that allow for rapid recovery of lost or damaged files.

New to StorageCraft’s line-up, the OneXafe Solo 300 plug-and-play appliance generated significant excitement during XChange boardroom sessions. This appliance streams data directly to StorageCraft Cloud Services to provide business continuity to solution providers’ smaller clients with simpler IT environments.

The Channel Company’s XChange March conference, held this year in San Antonio, Texas, from March 1–3, provided attendees with empowering insight, actionable business strategies and unmatched peer connections. Attendees learn from industry leaders, who present the latest technologies, programs and business models that are enabling solution providers to realize lasting success.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 19, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Sesame Software, the innovative leader in Enterprise Data Management, today announced the support of SAP HANA databases, enabling the creation and ongoing replication to an instant data warehouse for SAP Applications on Oracle, SQL Server, and now SAP’s own HANA database.

HANA is SAP’s own in-memory relational database system. It is designed for both transactional and reporting uses, and is the platform of choice for SAP customers to host the SAP application on a Cloud platform.

Companies are turning to fast reporting database platforms for their reporting needs, giving users the ability to develop reports without impacting performance of production transactional databases. These databases are also much faster to read than a conventional transactional database.

Relational Junction Data Connectors enable rapid connection to 100+ databases, exotic file systems, and SaaS applications. This universal data access ability allows customers to consolidate all their corporate data onto a single reporting platform, enabling a 360 degree view of all their business operations.

“Having the ability to join schemas to traverse business processes all the way from prospecting to billing gives companies the ‘lead to cash’ reporting that is so valuable in assessing business performance. This has tremendous value in planning a company’s future, whether the data points to areas needing more investment or operations that are not generating ROI,” says Rick Banister, founder and CEO of Sesame Software.

Relational Junction’s Data Warehouse Builder and high-volume data connector for SAP HANA streamlines integration processes with a single trusted source to ensure data consistency, enhanced performance, and rapid insights. With patented scalability and multithreaded technology, you can create an on-premise or Cloud data warehouse that is a mirror of your SAP HANA data in just minutes. Relational Junction doesn’t just shorten the project to build a warehouse- there is no project! Just turn it on, configure the login information, and your warehouse is built and loaded.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Connect to SAP Applications (e.g. SAP HANA) and other data sources
  • Replicates data to a fully automated data warehouse for backup, compliance and business intelligence
  • Instant deployment: on-premise or in any Cloud platform to power Big Data and analytics projects
  • Reduce wait time for data handling and enable intelligent automation, with high-volume data processing in near real time
  • Supports nearly any relational database as a warehouse, including Cloud and columnar platforms
  • Advanced auto discovery for schema changes and additions
  • Lowers total cost of ownership by eliminating data modeling, database design, and data mapping – click and load

Analyst report that evaluates vendors based on technical capabilities, roadmap, execution and ability to innovate puts Scality in its Leaders circle with ‘Outperformer’ designation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Scality, leader in software solutions for global data orchestration and distributed file and object storage, today shared that the new GigaOm Market Landscape Report: GigaOm Radar for Enterprise Object Storage, placed Scality in the Leaders circle in the GigaOm Radar for Enterprise Object Storage, with the further designation of Outperformer.

With the highest combined score for Key Criteria and Evaluation Metrics, Scality excelled in:

  • Maturity – the maturity and solidity of the product, user acceptance, and overall ecosystem sustainability.
  • Innovation – differentiation, innovative aspects of the product and overall vendor approach to the market.
  • Platform Play – its place as a horizontal (as opposed to niche) platform that can face a broad range of challenges, with a comprehensive feature set and extensive ecosystem.

According to the introduction by the report’s author, Enrico Signoretti, “Every aspect of data storage, access, and management has changed in the last few years. The internet, high-speed networks, cloud, powerful mobile devices, and IoT have profoundly altered the ways in which data is created and consumed by users and applications. Digital transformation processes embraced by most organizations have further amplified the need for data to be accessible from anywhere, on any device, and at any time. This is an unstoppable trend, and traditional storage technologies are simply not up to the task. With access methods, protocols, parallelism, and scalability requirements that are often beyond the reach of these types of systems, enterprises need new solutions for building sustainable IT infrastructures and meeting ever-growing challenges.”

Scality’s RING8 was developed to solve the complexities that come with today’s growing hybrid cloud data trends driven by edge computing. The increase in enterprise and public clouds for core workloads, and the proliferation of data generation and use at the edge drive ever more complex data management challenges.  More and more organizations are leveraging the benefits of hybrid cloud for data protection and disaster recovery options, in addition to keeping data near cloud compute resources. This brings new challenges that demand proven solutions to store, govern and orchestrate massive volumes of data across geographies and clouds.  Scality’s synergy with public clouds, including Wasabi, Google, AWS and Azure—including the development of the Azure Blob API to enable easy 2-way data movement—keep cloud options wide-open for our customers.

In his report’s conclusion, Signoretti sums-up Scality’s leadership position: “Scality offers better scalability and features that are more aligned with high performance, hybrid, and multi-cloud needs.”

About Scality
Scality builds the most powerful storage tools to make data easy to protect, search and manage anytime, on any cloud. We give customers the freedom and control necessary to be competitive in a data driven economy. Recognized as a leader in distributed file and object storage by Gartner and IDC, we help you to be ready for the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution.

150-Year-Old Community Bank Adopts Nutanix Software with HYCU Backup and Recovery to Streamline Operational Resilience and Enhance Security and Compliance

SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced the deployment of Nutanix’s software solution at Bank of Stockton, a full-service bank specializing in commercial and agricultural lending and wealth management, with HYCU Backup and Recovery for Nutanix.

Data privacy, security and compliance are always top of mind for financial services organizations, and in the age of rapid digital transformation, banks face the challenge of becoming technologically savvy to reach new clients. Serving California’s Central Valley with 19 branch banks and spanning nine counties in Northern California, Bank of Stockton consistently dealt with excessive overhead and continuous patching of their aging technology to address customer needs and increase data protection and regulatory requirements.

“With Nutanix and HYCU, our IT infrastructure just works and we no longer have to worry about issues that have long plagued us,” said Vincent Lo, VP of IT at Bank of Stockton. “The Nutanix HCI solution delivers the reliability and performance we need, freeing up time so that we can focus further on servicing our customers. Having been in the IT industry for over 30 years, I can say that the Nutanix and HYCU systems implementation has been the most seamless process I’ve managed with the highest performance, capability and simplicity I’ve ever seen.”

To get ahead of the upgrade curve and build a foundation that will support future requirements, the bank evaluated Nutanix’s market-leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to consolidate all its applications onto one solution. This included Nutanix’s Security Information Management System for simpler, more secure management and improved performance. Given HYCU’s native integration with the Nutanix platform and its purpose-built data protection solution – built from the ground up to provide the same experience of one-click simplicity to existing Nutanix administrators – the organization chose to implement HYCU to meet backup window time frames, provide granular data protection of mission critical applications and further protect virtual machine and file share data.

Since implementing Nutanix, the bank has been able to achieve higher productivity due to significant reduction in application processing time. Demanding, compute-intensive processes now run at nearly twice the speed of the bank’s legacy equipment, daily batch processing has been reduced to a third of the time and data backups have gone from several days to a few hours. And with Nutanix’s data encryption and HYCU’s data protection solution, the bank can further safeguard the reliability and integrity of its data and customer information.

“Banking, like many industries, handles very sensitive information, and we are delighted to help our customers transform their data centers while keeping customer information secure,” said John Bertero, VP of USA Commercial Sales. “By working with Bank of Stockton, Nutanix and HYCU could make the computing environment invisible. Simplifying their datacenter management using Nutanix AOS, Bank of Stockton reduced the amount of time spent on infrastructure tasks, all while staying technologically nimble and keeping pace with rapidly changing market opportunities.”

About HYCU
HYCU makes it easy to thrive in a hyper-simple, multi-cloud world. The pioneering enterprise software company specializes in data backup, recovery and monitoring for hyper-converged (HCI), Google Cloud and multi-cloud infrastructures.

“As experts in the localization of software and corresponding sales, we are very excited about our newly-established partnership with CloudOak. Leveraging our broad network, we will expand the channel distribution of Plan4Continuity throughout German-speaking Europe.” – Steffen Ebert Co-CEO of EBERTLANG

OAKVILLE, ON – March 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — CloudOak is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with EBERTLANG Distribution GmbH, an award-winning value add distributor (VAD) of Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Reseller software services to the SME/SMB market.

EBERTLANG, a leading VAD in German-speaking Europe, specializes on Software-as-a-Service solutions for small and mid-sized companies. It not only includes advantages such as years of experience in proactive sales, but also services such as training, webinars, and free marketing material. EBERTLANG sells software from well-known manufacturers exclusively via ESD (Electronic Software Distribution) for retail partners which means speed, flexibility, and simple license management. Computer Reseller News has named EBERTLANG Germany’s Best VAD in both 2017 and 2018 and ChannelPartner in 2019. Among other accolades, EBERTLANG won the Excellent Distributor award seven times in a row (2014-2020) from a field of some 300 distribution companies.

“EBERTLANG has long been on my ‘wish list’ of VAD’s to work with. With over 18,000 partners within their ecosystem, EBERTLANG is a premier and influential solutions provider to MSPs and resellers within German speaking Europe. By partnering with EBERTLANG to enter the EMEA region, we could not have asked for a better start” says Troy Cheeseman, co-founder of CloudOak. “After a first demonstration of Plan4Continuity, EBERTLANG immediately recognized the benefits of the solution and partnership not only for themselves but also for their resellers. Without delay, they signed up for a trial account and introduced Plan4Continuity (CloudOak) to the head of sales. It is a fantastic and exciting start!” says Troy Cheeseman.

“Because Plan4Continuity is a brand-new solution that has never been offered, EBERTLANG can take advantage of the opportunity to sell it to their resellers as a new and innovative solution creating an additional recurring revenue stream alongside their traditional SaaS products. Also, for EBERTLANG’s partners who hadn’t made the leap to cloud based SaaS offerings due to cost or skill set, Plan4Continuity allows for a seamless low cost way to do so. This will not only an increase in sales and profit margins but recurring revenue can lead to improved customer retention and increased business growth”, says Jeff Collier, CEO and co-founder of CloudOak.

“EBERTLANG continually searches for new, innovated products for our partners. We met with CloudOak and after the product demonstrations immediately felt there was a fit for our resellers. Many of our partners are looking to offer new innovated services, to improve their MRR potential and to help migrate from break fix/one-time revenue businesses to fully managed services. For our 18,000 partner community Plan4Continuity will enable all of those options for our partners.” Says Volker Lang, Co-CEO of EBERTLANG. “As experts in the localization of software and corresponding sales, we are very excited about our newly-established partnership with CloudOak. Leveraging our broad network, we will expand the channel distribution of Plan4Continuity throughout German-speaking Europe.”, says Steffen Ebert Co-CEO of EBERTLANG.

EBERTLANG will now offer Plan4Continuity by CloudOak to MSPs and resellers, assisting with the following tangible benefits:

  • Helping resellers create an MRR stream to help migrate to greater MRR and fewer one-time resells;
  • Aiding resellers in migrating to full managed services; and
  • Providing solutions to the SMB and SME market for GDPR compliant business continuity planning.

Igneous’ DataDiscover and DataProtect Enable Quantum Spatial to Simplify Operations While Hitting SLAs

SEATTLE, WA – March 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Igneous, the SaaS data management company for file intensive environments, announced today that Quantum Spatial, Inc. has standardized on Igneous for its fast file movement, cloud capabilities, and simplified operations.

Quantum Spatial, an NV5 company, is the nation’s largest geospatial data firm. A pioneer in advanced mapping technology, Quantum Spatial’s end-to-end solution delivers data and services of the highest quality and accuracy, leveraging the widest array of technologies in all types of landscapes. Igneous’ data management services have enabled Quantum Spatial to manage petabytes of data across seven remote locations, with just one person.

“We move petabytes of data each month as we offload and process customer projects,” said Carl Lucas, VP of Information Technology at Quantum Spatial. “Igneous’ SaaS-based monitoring alerts us if anything is happening. It helps me sleep at night.”

Quantum Spatial’s reputation has led to substantial growth in both customer projects, and of course, large amounts of data. In addition, new technology from sensor manufacturers continues to increase the resolution and quality of the images they capture.

Igneous is Quantum Spatial’s single data management strategy across three primary and four remote sites. The Igneous software allows them to hit aggressive protection and compliance SLAs. For Quantum Spatial, that means scalable, fast, and enterprise-class backup, visibility, and archive flexibility between on-premise infrastructure and Azure for petabytes of data.

Igneous has also helped Quantum Spatial optimize their limited datacenter space by building trust and best practices between IT and production teams. Now, when data is moved between locations or to Azure, the company is confident they will be able to get it back. “That’s pretty impressive given how protective our teams are over their data,” said Travis Spurley, Senior Systems Engineer at Quantum Spatial.

From camera to cloud, Quantum Spatial’s data processing pipeline is now optimized to move data with performance at scale. Archiving data to the cloud frees up valuable primary NAS for new projects, while still allowing users to retrieve their data when needed. The result is greater operational efficiency and confidence when deciding to move data.

“My engineers are very happy with Igneous. The ability to search across millions, if not billions of files is huge. The Igneous solution definitely improved our ability to do our job,” said Lucas.

Linktech Australia has launched its Kloudily cloud infrastructure & virtual desktop service. The service enables businesses to deploy new cloud infrastructure and Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD) 40 times faster while reducing overall Azure spend up to 63.7%

MELBOURNE, Australia – March 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Linktech Australia, an award-winning Managed Service Provider, has launched its Kloudily cloud infrastructure & virtual desktop service. The service enables businesses to deploy new cloud infrastructure and Windows Virtual Desktops (WVD) 40 times faster while reducing overall Azure spend up to 63.7%. The new solution makes it easier and cheaper for businesses to work remotely by deploying infrastructure on Microsoft Azure.

Kloudily’s launch comes as the worldwide spread of COVID-19 and isolation measures are forcing employers to consider new ways for employees to work remotely. The launch offering includes cloud infrastructure (IaaS) and a true next-generation remote desktop experience, which enables customers to minimise on-premise infrastructure, eliminate VPNs, modernise application delivery and optimised backup options.

Traditional cloud enablement projects may take anywhere from weeks to multi-year migrations. Kloudily reduces deployment costs significantly by providing infrastructure and desktops in the cloud in less than two hours. At the same time, Kloudily automatically manages customers’ Azure infrastructure by seamlessly scaling usage.

“Many businesses want to dip their toes into the water with cloud infrastructure or Windows virtual desktops, but the cost and time investment is often too high,” says Regina Melamed, General Manager, Linktech Australia.

Kloudily provides feature rich functionality and flexibility to enable Australian businesses to achieve their digital business goals without compromising the security and performance of the ongoing day-to-day business operations.

“Our solution not only saves time to deploy infrastructure and desktops to the cloud, but businesses can rapidly enable remote access for their employees. With WVD’s users can switch to the same personalised desktop experience as they’re used to on their physical devices. Windows virtual desktops allow employees to securely login to their work environments from home. With Kloudily, we hope to enable business of all sizes to quickly and efficiently embrace cloud adoption by removing time and cost barriers” says Melamed.

Businesses are now getting more comfortable with moving some of their infrastructure to the cloud. At the same time the first wave of migrations is complete, questions remain about service optimisation, security and cost controls. Kloudily is backed by Linktech Australia’s services which includes 24×7 technical support to help customers address management challenges.
