Data Deposit Box Cloud Backup Expert Tips: How to Improve Your PC’s Boot Time by Almost 50 Percent

If there is one thing that is highly characteristic of new PC systems, it is how fast they boot up when you turn them on. However, as weeks turn into months, you will start noticing that your PC doesn’t startup as fast as it used to be, and the annoyance increases with the increasing boot time. In fact, computers that take as long as full three minutes before finally displaying the desktop are fairly common.

If you are troubled by your PC’s slow boot time, then here are a few things you can do to improve the experience:

1. Change the BIOS Settings

Tweaking the default settings of BIOS can also reduce startup time. For instance, you can move the boot drive to the “First Boot Device” position in the menu. If there are other boot devices that you don’t use, such as CD, USB, etc. you can disable them as well. Enabling Fast Boot option also allows you to skip on several tests (mostly unnecessary) that your system runs at the time of booting.

2. Upgrade Your Operating System

If you are still using Windows 7, or god forbid Windows XP, then perhaps it is time to upgrade your system. While Windows 10 is an obvious choice to go for as it’s the latest OS released by Microsoft, if not that then you should at least upgrade to version 8.1. You will observe a huge difference in the system performance.

3. Install an SSD

This may not be the cheapest option on the list, but it sure is the most effective. Solid State Drives are much faster than your traditional hard drives. A number of benchmarks published show that by switching to an SSD alone, you can reduce the boot time by almost 50 percent.

Although SSD are indeed more powerful and faster than the typical drives, they can be quite expensive. Thus, instead of investing in a large capacity SSD, you can get a starter variant (120GB or 320GB perhaps, or 1TB), and make it the primary drive for your PC. While the data transfer rate will be largely unaffected this way, the boot time will surely improve.

4. Disable Startup Programs

Irrespective of whether you are using an SSD or not you can always benefit from disabling unwanted startup programs. These are the programs that the OS launches when you boot your computer. If many such programs are enabled, then the system can take a long time to start. Fortunately, disabling these programs is easy. All you have to do is launch the task manager and select “Startup” from the menu. Here you will find the list of the programs that are “enabled”. You can disable those you don’t need to use often, or don’t mind starting yourself later.

Depending on the number of programs and their startup impact you can easily save up to a minute or more on the boot time.

If all the above tricks won’t make a difference on the speed, we suggest that you replace the computer.

Other tricks which can boost the speed of your PC include:

  • Adding more RAM;
  • Disabling unused hardware;
  • Removing unnecessary fonts; and
  • Changing boot menu timeout values.

As far as your cloud backups are concerned, remember that if your computer is faster, your backup jobs could also be processed faster and get completed quickly, giving you more time to focus on other tasks.

First to Address the Time & Complexity Challenge of GDPR Compliance and Data Protection in the Cloud

SAN JOSE, CA – May 25, 2017 — / — With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance deadline just one year away, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud security, data protection and governance, today announced its new GDPR Solution Center to help large enterprises in highly regulated industries with a 12-month actionable roadmap for GDPR compliance.

Complying with GDPR is a complex and time consuming process. Many organizations are still scrambling to understand the new data protection requirements and implement effective technology and controls and have one year to get it done. According to a recent Osterman Research survey, 72 percent of users don’t feel ready to meet the new GDPR requirements.

Data protection is one of the most critical aspects of GDPR, yet as enterprises move to the cloud, the ability to protect and maintain control over private information becomes infinitely more challenging. Data protection requirements include encryption, pseudonymization, key management, breach notification, and security by design and default.

“Any business with data in the cloud needs to take adequate precautions and controls,” said Fazal Sadikali, Director, Cloud First at Accenture. “Customer-controlled encryption provides persistent control and helps you meet a wide range of regulations, including the GDPR.”

Software-Defined Storage Leads in Top Categories for 2017 Spending; Surprising Insights Revealed about Hyperconverged Infrastructure, Flash and other Much-Hyped Technologies

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 23, 2017 – / — DataCore, a leading provider of software-defined storage and hyperconverged infrastructure solutions powered by Adaptive Parallel I/O technology, today announced the results of its sixth annual survey , designed to explore the impact of major software-driven storage deployments within organizations across the globe. The survey distills the positive expectations, disappointments, and experiences of 426 IT professionals who are currently using or evaluating software-defined storage, hyperconverged and cloud storage to solve critical data storage challenges. The results yielded surprising insights from a cross-section of industries over a wide range of workloads.

The survey probed for levels of spending on technologies including software-defined storage, flash technology, hyperconverged storage, private cloud storage and OpenStack. Software-defined storage topped the charts in 2017 spending, with 16% reporting that software-defined storage represented 11-25% of their allocated budget, and 13% representing that it made up more than 25% of their allocated budget for storage (the highest of any category). Unexpectedly, the findings showed that very little funding is being earmarked in 2017 for much-hyped technologies such as OpenStack storage, with 70% of respondents marking it “not applicable.”

The report also reveals major business drivers for implementing software-defined storage. The top business drivers that participants reported for implementing software-defined storage were:

  • To simplify management of different models of storage – 55%;
  • To future-proof infrastructure – 53%;
  • To avoid hardware lock-in from storage manufacturers – 52%; and
  • To extend the life of existing storage assets – 47%.

Only 6% of those surveyed said they were not considering a move to software-defined storage.

One of the more interesting questions asked – What technology disappointments or false starts have you encountered in your storage infrastructure?” — revealed the following top three answers:

  1. Cloud storage failed to reduce costs – 31%;
  2. Managing object storage is difficult – 29%;
  3. Flash failed to accelerate applications – 16%.

Also noteworthy is that the top two environments that respondents believe experience the most severe performance challenges (where storage is suspected to be the root cause) are databases and enterprise applications (ERP, CRM, etc.). The need for faster databases and data analytics is driving new requirements for technologies that optimize performance and meet demand for real-time responses. This is critical for business insights and to power technologies such as the Internet of Things. However, many feel that current technologies designed to accelerate performance and decrease latency also bring along significant disruptions to existing applications, greater complexity and higher costs.

Additional highlights of DataCore’s sixth annual survey include:

  • A look at the current state of hyperconverged infrastructure, including lower than expected deployment numbers. A majority of respondents stated they were either not considering hyperconverged at all (33%) or were strongly considering it but haven’t deployed it yet (34%). 20% of respondents said that they have a few nodes; 7% are in major deployment(s), while only 6% are standardized on it.
  • As prevalent as flash has become, only a small number of respondents reported a large amount of storage capacity assigned to it. About 60% of respondents fell within the category of having less than 10% to 20% of total capacity assigned to flash.
  • In looking at applications deemed ready for a hybrid cloud infrastructure, the primary types of applications users are willing to move to a public cloud or hybrid cloud infrastructure were select enterprise applications (i.e. Salesforce) – 33%, data analytics – 22%; and databases – 21%.
  • To view the entire report, including additional findings on software-defined storage, hyperconverged storage, cloud storage, and related storage technologies, please visit: .

DataCore’s “State of Software-Defined Storage, Hyperconverged and Cloud Storage” survey was conducted in late 2016 through April 2017. Respondents came from a diverse set of organizations, both in size and industry, providing statistically significant insights into the similarity in needs for software-driven storage over a wide range of IT environments. Participants were located in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand in a range of vertical market segments including financial services, healthcare, government, manufacturing, education, IT services and other related industries. 44 percent of respondents were from organizations with fewer than 500 employees, 37 percent of respondents from organizations with between 500 and 5,000 employees, and 19 percent from organizations with more than 5,000 employees.

The newest enhancements to the eFolder Replibit BDR solutions give MSPs the ability to seamlessly scale up or down, with storage options ranging from 500 GB all the way up 36 TB in a single appliance. These changes enable eFolder’s MSP partners to deliver business continuity services to nearly any client they have, no matter how small or large.

“Every small business client should enjoy the protection and peace of mind that true business continuity provides,” says eFolder CEO, Kevin Hoffman. “With the introduction of the Nano, MSPs can provide business continuity services to even their smallest clients, at a price point that matches solutions that only offer backup functionality. MSPs can now deliver more value to their clients and enjoy lower labor costs without having to charge their clients more for backup services.”

eFolder has also launched a new major version of the Replibit software, available immediately as a free upgrade to all Replibit partners, featuring a faster replication engine with Multi-Vault Replication technology. Multi-Vault Replication allows a BDR to concurrently replicate to an unlimited number of off-site vaults, including the eFolder cloud, a partner’s cloud, or a client’s satellite office, at no extra charge. This empowers MSPs to cost effectively deliver an added level of disaster recovery protection and more flexible recovery and failback options after a disaster.

“eFolder Replibit gives MSPs the tools and flexibility to deliver the appropriate mix of BDR technology and services for each of their clients,” says Andy Bensinger, founder of the Replibit product. “MSPs can now economically keep more ready-to-run copies of their clients’ data for those clients whose SLAs require faster failover and failback after a disaster.”

All new appliances and the new version of eFolder Replibit are available immediately and ready for shipment. Licensing is flexible, with pricing options per protected endpoint or based on licensed storage tiers.

LONDON, UK – 24 May 2017 — / — The number of denial-of-service (DoS) or distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) cyberattacks doubled from 3% to 6% in 2016, due to the lack of sufficient security controls of Internet-connected ¹Internet of Things (IoT) devices. And of all IoT attacks, 60% originated from Asia, 21% from EMEA and another 19% from the Americas. The most likely reason for the high volume of attacks from Asia is that technology sourced from the region has historically been susceptible, and compromised infrastructure tends to be reused to perpetrate additional nefarious activities.

These are some of the highlights in Dimension Data’s Executive’s Guide to the NTT Security 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report which was published earlier this month. The report was compiled from data collected by NTT Security and other NTT operating companies including Dimension Data, from the networks of 10,000 clients across five continents, 3.5 trillion security logs, 6.2 billion attempted attacks, and global ¹honeypots and ² sandboxes located in over 100 different countries.

Global honeypot sensors monitored IoT cyberattacks and their targets over a six-month period. Based on the credentials used by threat actors, it was determined that 66% of attacks targeted specific IoT devices such as a particular model of video camera. These attacks appeared to be from compromised IoT devices attempting to find and compromise even more such devices. This would be consistent with an attacker acquiring a large number of devices to use in DDoS and other forms of attack. Of the balance of 34% of the analysed attacks, it’s likely these were also attempting to grow the attacker’s arsenal by targeting other types of devices.

DDoS attacks using IoT devices can impact an organisation in multiple ways. They can:

  • Prevent customers, partners, and other stakeholders from accessing their organisations’ Internet-facing resources, thereby impacting sales and other daily operations;
  • Prevent employees and internal systems from accessing the Internet, disrupting many facets of operations; and
  • Affect organisations providing services from the Internet, which can cause supply chains to be broken.

“There’s nothing about a DDoS attack which requires use of IoT devices only, so attackers may look for as many devices as possible regardless of type,” explained Mark Thomas, Dimension Data’s Cybersecurity Strategist. He points out that while DDoS attacks are the most recognised threat, they’re not the only potential outcome of an organisation’s IoT and ²operational technology (OT) devices being compromised.”

There are a number of actions that organisations can take to protect their businesses including:

  • Make security a primary consideration for all Internet of Things and operational technology device purchases;
  • Authorise funding as needed to replace older Internet of Things and operations technology devise purchases;
  • Conduct threat and vulnerability assessments; and
  • Ensure devices are discovered and profiled within an organisation.

According to a February 2017 press release by research firm, Gartner Inc, 8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017- up 31% on 2016. This number will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. And total spend on endpoints and services will reach almost $2 trillion in 2017.

Anton Jooste, Dimension Data’s Senior VP, Internet of Things added: “The number of ways that IoT devices can help people and organisations is boundless. However, there’s also much evidence that the expansion of the Internet enabled through mobility, cloud adoption, and the proliferation of the Internet of Things, has exposed new attack surfaces. Vulnerabilities are rife, data is exponentially increasing, privacy is being eroded, and the cost of breaches is becoming debilitating.”

[¹] – The Internet of Things refers to the billions of devices (things) other than standard computers, smartphones, and tablets that can use computer networks (the internet). Many people already have IoT devices in their homes, such as routers, DVRs, thermostats, video cameras, security systems, coffeemakers, refrigerators, and voice-activated assistants (e.g., Amazon Echo). IoT devices also include wearables such as smartwatches, fitness bands, and medical devices. Even many cars have become IoT devices.

[²] – Operational Devices are IoT-like devices.

“The availability of Cohesity software in the Microsoft Azure marketplace gives our customers an easy way to now provision and use flexible and cost-effective cloud services to complement their on-premises infrastructure,” said Patrick Rogers, head of marketing and product at Cohesity. “This is a concrete example of how we are actually delivering on our leadership vision for software-defined scale-out storage infrastructures that span from the edge to the center of the cloud. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Azure on this hybrid cloud initiative that has unprecedented demand amongst our enterprise customer base.”

“Cohesity provides a simple and seamless way for both large and small enterprises to incorporate Microsoft Azure within their global IT infrastructure,” said Microsoft Corp General Manager of Azure Storage Tad Brockway. “Cohesity’s software-defined storage makes it easy to build truly hybrid IT environments which benefit from the reliability, scale and reach of Azure Storage.”
Multiple clients are already benefiting from the newly available capabilities to replicate data from on-premises Cohesity clusters to Azure and run new workloads in the cloud.

Denham Capital manages a multi-billion dollar portfolio in energy and mining resources companies. “With Cohesity Cloud Edition we can easily and transparently move our virtual machine backups into the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

TOKYO, JAPAN – May 24, 2017 — / — NetJapan Inc., publisher of backup, disaster recovery, and virtualization software solutions, has entered into a Distributor Agreement with Runexy Corporation. Runexy is an established Japanese corporation with extensive background in distributing some of the most dependable data protection solutions in the Japanese market.

A backup strategy is vital to protect systems, and critical data for businesses and home users. A recent large-scale ransomware attack has been spreading across a number of countries and industries, and is causing serious damage. A solid backup strategy, such as ActiveImage Protector, is one of the most effective methods of protection against ransomware threats.

NetJapan develops, markets and supports the ActiveImage Protector suite of products in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region and Japan through contracted resellers and partners.

Runexy has been among the first to introduce prominent, cutting-edge technologies to the Japanese market; focusing on distribution of packaged software, and providing exceptional technical support.

This partnership not only benefits both companies but will expand the availability of high-quality backup and disaster recovery solutions and services to a wider range of users.

What is ActiveImage Protector?
ActiveImage Protector is a live imaging backup and recovery solution for Windows and Linux physical and virtual environments. Using sector-based disk imaging technology, ActiveImage Protector backs up the entire disk drive which includes the system volume, all applications, user data and saves the created backup as an image file.

In the event of system failure, users can recover individual files and folders or restore the entire disk drive. If necessary, recovery of a hard disk drive or files and folders may be restored to a physical or virtual machine of dissimilar hardware from the source machine.

In addition to backup and recovery of on-premise servers and workstations, ActiveImage Protector supports backup and recovery of Cloud servers.

ActiveImage Protector is now attracting attention as an affordable backup and disaster recovery solution that safeguards data against a ransomware threat.

By listening to users, we have improved the technology in an effort to offer better performance in a quality solution. With improved performance of the backup engine and increased compression with the addition of Inline Data Deduplication we have received good positive feedback.

SEATTLE, WA – May 24, 2017 — / — Virtuozzo, a hyperconverged infrastructure software provider, today announced the latest release of its integrated container, hypervisor and storage solution. With a number of enhancements designed to improve performance, ease-of-use and security, the new release of Virtuozzo accelerates application workloads and simplifies deployments with centralized management and new automation tools. The Virtuozzo platform optimizes infrastructure costs with a pure software solution that combines breakthrough performance with the freedom to use any x86 server-based architecture – or opt for dedicated bare metal servers from the cloud.

Release highlights:

  • Reduce storage costs with RAID 6 erasure coding performance improvements – The latest Virtuozzo release improves the performance of data located on Virtouzzo Storage in erasure code mode, which provides added data protection and enables more efficient use of disk space. This allows customers to run virtualization and database workloads up to 130% faster, as well as run more workloads per host to reduce hardware footprints and lower total cost of ownership. Virtuozzo Storage also provides customers with flexibility depending on the workload or type of storage needed, including support for container and virtual machine (VM) volume storage using erasure coding mode, or support for more demanding workloads, including advanced cloud services and databases, using replicas.
  • Deploy and manage containers, VMs and storage from a single solution – Customers can now manage compute and storage for hyperconverged infrastructure deployments together with the Virtuozzo Automator and Virtuozzo Storage management panels available in a single solution. This makes installations and management easier and faster, while giving customers more control over their deployments to optimize costs and server capacity.
  • Perform hypervisor security updates with no downtime – With this release, Virtuozzo enables the installation of hypervisor updates without the need to restart the virtual machine. This improvement allows customers to avoid service interruptions to end users, while keeping hypervisors secure and saving IT departments countless hours on maintenance and updates. Virtuozzo also includes ReadyKernel, which provides similar benefits for Linux kernel updates for containers.
  • Run Microsoft Windows VMs in Virtuozzo deployments – VMs running Microsoft Windows will now work in Virtuozzo deployments without the need to install Microsoft disk drivers inside the VM, using newly added Hyper-V paravirt storage device emulation. This new functionality is the result of community work that Virtuozzo has been doing with KVM/QEMU, and greatly simplifies the installation of VMs running Microsoft Windows into Virtuozzo environments.
  • Enable automated updates of guest tools in VMs – Virtuozzo now enables automated updates for guest tools to ensure that VMs are properly configured with every new update.

“Our latest release of Virtuozzo makes it easier for our customers to deploy and manage a hyperconverged infrastructure with integrated compute and storage in a single solution,” said George Karidis, Chief Executive Officer at Virtuozzo. “With Virtuozzo, companies can run existing apps with breakthrough performance and efficiency by leveraging containers, VMs and storage, while putting in place a next generation infrastructure for cloud native apps and microservices.”

Additional new features include new upgrade options for backup and restore of Virtuozzo 6 virtual machines and containers to Virtuozzo 7 nodes, and automated disk compacting for Linux VMs to minimize disk usage.

Indianapolis, Indiana – May 24, 2017 — / — Online Tech is pleased to announce it has been selected as the disaster recovery provider of choice for Milhaus, a mixed-use housing developer. One of the fastest growing companies in Indianapolis, Milhaus designs, builds and manages luxury apartments in urban areas across the U.S.

Milhaus was looking to protect its critical telecommunications, file and accounting services with a disaster recovery solution. According to Steve Werner, Director of Technology at Milhaus, they wanted a local provider who could reduce their recovery time from a week to less than 24 hours and had the technical expertise to implement that solution. Werner solved both problems with Online Tech and their Disaster Recovery as a Service solution (OT DRaaS).

The combination of Online Tech’s experience and expertise with data replication service provider Zerto has worked well for Milhaus. “I think Online Tech has a great platform,” Werner said. “I just have a few clicks of a button, and I can access my server and get it up and running. It’s hard for a lot of other providers to say, ‘We’ll get your servers back in an hour.’ Zerto and Online Tech can do that.”

Online Tech will host Milhaus’s disaster-recovery-as-a-service environment at their secure, compliant data centers, along with file-level and image backup services. Werner added that Online Tech’s geographical diversity with seven data centers in three states was an important factor when deciding on a service provider.

“Milhaus is a forward-thinking company that is making a real positive impact in our communities and we are thrilled to be able to help them protect their mission,” said Ruth Miles, General Manager of Indiana Region.

Online Tech has provided expert cloud hosting, disaster recovery, backup and support services for more than 20 years. Their locations throughout Michigan, Indiana and Missouri specifically have focused on secure, compliant hybrid cloud and disaster recovery services.

LONDON, UK – May 24, 2017 — / — Disaster recovery service provider Databarracks, has become a ‘Corporate Partner’ of the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), working with it to raise the profile of business continuity management (BCM) as a critical discipline for business resilience, amongst the SME community.

Founded in 1994, the BCI has established itself as the leading organisation for BC professionals worldwide, supporting over 8,000 members in more than 100 countries and working with an estimated 3,000 organisations in private, public and third sectors. BCI members receive access to a wealth of resources and industry knowledge, centered around developing and maintaining professional competency in BC.

A growing number of organisations are taking proactive steps to improve their business resilience. Evidence from this can be seen from Databarracks’ latest annual Data Health Check survey, which reveals that over the past eight years the volume of organisations adopting BC plans has increased from 37 per cent to 67 per cent. As a ‘Corporate Partner’, Databarracks will
aim to help grow this figure further by working with the BCI to provide education and awareness of BCM best practice, notably amongst the SME community.

Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks commented: “The small and medium sized businesses in the UK that we work with will rarely have their own dedicated BC professionals. Our aim is to take the best-practice, expertise and knowledge and make it applicable and usable for our customers. Often we see the distinction between BC and IT disaster recovery (DR) are blurred for smaller businesses. We have been helping our customers with IT DR, but we want to go beyond IT to help improve overall business resilience. We are training all of our customer facing staff in the fundamentals of business continuity and now that we are a Corporate Partner of the BCI, we want to work with the institute to help raise the profile of BCM and improve resilience.

David Thorp, Executive Director of the BCI added to this and welcomed Databarracks to the BCI: “It is a pleasure to welcome Databarracks as a Corporate Partner of the BCI and we look forward to working with them to help advance the industry. Databarracks bring a unique insight into the world of disaster recovery. Additionally, their drive and determination to help organisations become more secure and more resilient is a goal we both share. With our own Horizon Scan Report identifying just how great a threat the cyber landscape can pose to all organisations, it is essential that organisations work together to help combat this threat and improve resiliency.”

Databarracks is certified by the Cloud Industry Forum, ISO 27001 certified for Information Security and has been named as a “Niche Player” in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for DRaaS.

12 month countdown highlights the need for organizations to act now 

GDPR, ransomware and leakware put having a holistic data management strategy front and center

Brussels, Belgium, Reading, UK, and Tinton Falls, N.J. – May 24, 2017 – / — Businesses need to urgently prepare for the arrival of EU GDPR compliance regulations, or risk being among the first to be penalised when the regulations take effect in 12 months’ time, according to Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud. Corporate complacency is one of the biggest barriers to GDPR compliance with many organisations yet to implement either suitable processes or technology. With instances of intrusions such as ransomware and leakware on the rise, failure to implement a secure data management platform can result in organisations facing damaging financial penalties.

Pegged as the toughest piece of privacy regulation in the world, and the most significant privacy regulation update since 1995 when the original Data Protection Directive was launched, GDPR was passed in April 2016 and will take effect on May 25, 2018. It is designed to pass the balance of power back to individuals in how their data is processed and has far reaching implications for any global organisation that manages personal information of EU citizens.

“GDPR has been on the radar of European countries for a while now, but we haven’t seen many organizations actively taking steps to become compliant, so now it is crunch time,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, Commvault. “You don’t want to be the company in the first week of June 2018 that is used as the poster child for the harsh reality of the penalties laid out by the regulations. “There is still plenty of time for organizations to ensure compliance in time for the May 2018 deadline, but they need to move quickly and strategically, and this is where Commvault can help.”

Commvault can help companies meet specific articles and principles of GDPR, including the right to be forgotten, data protection by design and by default, ensuring ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience, 72-hour data breach notification, data minimization principle, data transfers and portability, and more. To tackle these specifications from GDPR, the Commvault Data Platform indexes content from the data that it touches, uniquely providing a single point for organisations to locate Personally Identifiable Information in unstructured data, whether in backups, archives, core enterprise, private and public cloud environments, and also in Endpoint Protection.

The Commvault Data Platform has been built with security in mind and provides organizations with the ability to identify, mitigate and recover from cyber attacks. Commvault utilizes sophisticated intrusion detection software to enable organizations to recognize threats such as ransomware, or the lesser-known leakware, which exposes personal customer data to the public unless a ransom is paid. By being aware of ongoing threats, companies are better able to protect Personally Identifiable Information and maintain GDPR compliance – even when vital systems are under attack.

“Good data management practices are key to GDPR compliance success. Understanding where you have personal data – in which applications, on-premises or in the cloud, which processes use this data, and who owns it – is an important first step,” said Carla Arend, Program Director, IDC. “If you have not started to prepare, get started now; getting GDPR compliance right takes time. Most European organizations have started preparations, but those outside the EU need to understand how this regulation applies to them as well. A good starting point is addressing unstructured data and devising data governance and management processes that cover data from edge devices to the data center to the cloud.”

The legislation includes the new ‘data protection officer’ concept, which is a role to monitor compliance, and it can be filled by someone from the company staff or by an outsourced vendor. Likewise, companies must adapt their own systems or go for an outsourced approach.

“Many SMEs will opt for the outsourcing,” said Ricardo de la Cruz, Infrastructure Director – ACENS, “so they will have to depend on a reliable entity to meet their obligations and ensure confidentiality and availability for their data. In this scenario trusted suppliers like Acens and Commvault are key.”

Many organizations across the world are already using the Commvault Data Platform to ensure that their data management processes are robust enough to build fully GDPR compliant processes on top.

“We discovered the full potential of Commvault Platform during a transformation workshop organised by the company, as part of which Commvault assessed our organization’s maturity in the areas of data management and information,” added Przemys?aw Weso?owski, IT Infrastructure Director, PGNiG SA. “The workshops resulted in recommendations that delivered greater competitive advantage to our business by making different data sets more immediately and easily visible to our executives, as well as providing greater speed and accuracy in terms of compliance – a critical factor when our business has so much commercially sensitive data and the impending GDPR legislation requirements incoming into effect in 2018.”

The Cloudian/Komprise data management and storage solution helps customers tier data transparently to less expensive resilient storage

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 24, 2017 — / — Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in enterprise object storage systems, and Komprise, the industry-leader in intelligent data management, today announced a joint solution that enables customers to move dormant or infrequently used data to an on-premise active archive and reclaim more than half of their Tier 1 Network-Attached Storage (NAS) capacity.

“Organizations have to contend with cold or infrequently accessed data that can occupy more than 60 percent of their most costly NAS resources,” said Jon Toor, Cloudian’s chief marketing officer. “The Cloudian/Komprise solution enables customers to move cold data to an onsite active archive to be transparently accessed when needed, with zero impact to the user experience.”

The Cloudian/Komprise solution uses the Komprise data management software to identify inactive NAS data and then transparently move it to an on-premises Cloudian scale-out storage device. Customer-defined policies, such as data age, frequency of use, and file type determine which data should be tiered. All data remains within the data center.

“We are pleased to partner with Cloudian and provide customers a simple, frictionless way to adopt cost-efficient secondary storage without disrupting current users or applications,” said Krishna Subramanian, COO of Komprise. “Our software provides the visibility and detailed analytics that help customers make informed decisions about which data can be non-disruptively migrated off expensive NAS environments and moves data transparently. Once transferred, the data can still be searched, accessed, and modified as files. Users will never know the difference.”

The solution is ideal for enterprise customers and service providers who have large amounts of file-based data and need a solution that can reduce storage costs. Cloudian provides high-availability, enterprise-class storage at 70 percent less than the costs of traditional NAS solutions. Additionally, data migrated to Cloudian no longer consumes backup license costs, reducing overall backup cost by as much as 60 percent.

“Cloudian and Komprise have given us a new way to manage customer data in a manner that delivers significant cost savings with no noticeable impact on performance or the customer experience,” said Richard Tatham, GM of cloud services at Sithabile Technology Services in South Africa. “With more than 13 years of experience helping customers build and manage storage architectures that span from tape to high end storage devices, we see this solution as the best way for our customers to reduce their storage costs and maintain the performance they expect and need.”

Cloudian and Komprise will hold a joint webinar on June 1, at 10AM PST (1PM EST) which will include a solution overview and the return-on-investment achieved by deferring costly NAS expansion projects. To register for this live event, please visit

Cloud Ready Program Provides Organizations Seamless Transition to the Cloud with New 90-Day Free Trial

CAMPBELL, Calif., May 24, 2017 — / — Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions, today announced it has expanded its Cloud Ready program to offer any organization a free 90-day cloud license for Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda NextGen Firewall on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure (Azure). These award-winning network and application security solutions are available as pay-as-you-go (PAYG) licenses directly through the AWS Marketplace and Azure Marketplace.

“Migrating legacy workloads or new applications to the cloud can be a significant effort, and many organizations make the costly mistake of blindly assuming their legacy on-premises security solutions will extend to the cloud without considering whether these solutions can meet the unique requirements of the cloud,” said Michael Hughes, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Barracuda. “Barracuda’s security solutions are purpose built to bridge the gap between your on-premises and cloud infrastructures. Based on feedback from our public cloud partners who want to offer the same capabilities to their customers, we’ve expanded our Cloud Ready program to help simplify the process so that customers can move to the cloud faster, more cost effectively, and with greater confidence.”

Removing Barriers to Cloud Migration
Barracuda’s Cloud Ready program helps IT buyers secure their new or existing workloads in both AWS and Azure at no charge for 90 days. Barracuda’s Cloud Ready network and application security solutions can be natively deployed and fully integrated with AWS and Azure to amplify all the key benefits of the cloud through auto-scaling, templated configurations, bootstrapping, data-logging and more. Barracuda’s cloud-enabled security suite allows organizations to deploy their applications and workloads securely with the same powerful capabilities and intuitive user interface whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Barracuda offers a variety of flexible pricing options, including BYOL, PAYG and metered billing. For more details on the Cloud Ready program, please visit

The cloud introduces new capabilities to scale network infrastructures and application workloads without the same cost and complexity of on-premises equipment. At the same time, migrating to the cloud can be a complicated process, and moving sensitive business applications to the cloud creates new security requirements. A recent Osterman Research study reported that most respondents cited security concerns as the most common barrier to cloud adoption, with primary concerns being data sovereignty and privacy (58 percent) and general risk control (54 percent). In addition, organizations often need to connect legacy on-premises infrastructure to their new cloud frameworks in a hybrid environment, which can create additional issues with management, access, and policy enforcement.[1]

“Our broad strategy is a complete transition to a cloud infrastructure,” explained Jeff Thomas, chief technology officer at Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest producer and processor of pork products. “As we start to build a more robust e-commerce presence in AWS, we expect to get even more value from Barracuda since that’s where the auto-scaling becomes most important—and it’s where you find a lot of the biggest security risks. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides the controls we need, has a very easy user interface, and we can configure and provision it directly through the AWS Marketplace, making the Barracuda Web Application Firewall a great solution we can standardize across all our properties.”

Barracuda Cloud Security Leadership
Barracuda is the leader in public cloud security, with award-winning firewalls available in AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. More than 50 of the Fortune 1000 companies trust Barracuda firewalls to protect and connect their cloud workloads and applications.

Small to large enterprises and service providers can now accelerate across any workload, budget and service level both on-premises and off

Palo Alto, CA – May 24, 2017 — / — Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced a comprehensive flash portfolio update with new products and data protection solutions designed to help customers continue their journey to an all-flash data center. The new offerings include:

  • A more powerful midrange HPE 3PAR StoreServ 9450 all-flash array
  • Availability of Nimble Storage primary and new secondary flash arrays
  • Affordable fifth generation HPE MSA Storage
  • High-speed, cloud-connected StoreOnce data protection

The adoption of flash storage continues to gain pace, with 51 percent of customers[1] predicting that they will have an All-Flash Data Center within five years. It’s not just enterprises, smaller companies are also adopting flash as prices come down. At the same time, IT teams are seeking deeper integration across servers, storage, networks, and automation tools to maximize value from investments.

“As flash permeates the datacenter it has become critical to move beyond the array – from predictive analytics to data protection to investment strategies,” said Bill Philbin, senior vice president, Data Center Infrastructure Group, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “These new solutions help more customers maximize the value of flash on-premises and enable flexible off-premises data mobility.”

Leading All-Flash price-performance and density across multiple segments
Data growth and app development in the data center is expanding exponentially and putting pressure on IT to consolidate more data on less infrastructure while also evaluating the right mix of on-premises and off-premises investments. To address these demands, HPE is updating its overall flash portfolio including the addition of cloud-ready Nimble Storage flash arrays powered by predictive analytics for a new-style approach to storage support and monitoring.

For midrange customers hitting performance limits of aging systems, HPE 3PAR is redefining expectations with the new HPE 3PAR StoreServ 9450, a highly scalable, multi-tenant, and performance rich all-flash platform that builds on the product family’s number one position in the midrange fibre channel.[2] To enable the consolidation of more data in less space without compromising service levels, HPE is increasing performance 70 percent, doubling scale to 6PB, and enabling 3X the front-end connectivity with 80 host ports.[3] This new, more powerful member of the 3PAR family enables consistent and predictable performance at less than half the cost of EMC VMAX 250F[4] and supports consolidation of both block and file workloads. For those considering long-term investment strategies, the 3PAR StoreServ 9450 also provides a futureproof path to next generation Storage Class Memory and NVM Express (NVMe) using HPE 3PAR 3D Cache.

HPE is also unveiling the fifth generation of its entry SAN platform, HPE MSA, starting with the introduction of HPE MSA 2050 and 2052 models. MSA has been the leading entry fibre channel array for eight years[5] and now delivers 2x more performance than the previous generation starting under $10,000.[6] With all-inclusive software and 1.6 terabytes of solid-state disk (SSD) capacity included, the new HPE MSA 2052 offers a 40 percent cost savings[7] on hybrid flash models. Both MSA platforms are affordable starting points for application acceleration providing flexibility to mix any combination of SSD and SAS drives plus including resiliency features such as snapshots and remote replication.

Flash-optimized protection now cloud-ready and 15x faster
With the scale and speed of flash storage becoming pervasive it’s critical that customers re-think data protection to avoid risk and eliminate bottlenecks – this includes taking advantage of public cloud to achieve the right mix of Hybrid IT. As part of that shift, HPE has federated primary, secondary, and object storage to enable zero-impact data protection while putting backup data to work.

For customers exploring public-cloud tiers for secondary data, HPE announced StoreOnce CloudBank, a long-term data retention solution that provides significantly lower cost protection on multi-cloud destinations such as AWS, Azure or on premises object storage. Unlike many cloud backup solutions, StoreOnce CloudBank has been architected to reduce bandwidth requirements by over 99 percent, helping to lower costs of cloud-based storage to just $0.001 per gigabyte per month. The solution also supports the full set of on-premises StoreOnce features, including 3PAR integration, so customers can automatically transition data off-premises while assuring rapid and flexible disaster recovery.

As HPE 3PAR flash customers seek to rapidly protect larger and larger data sets, HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) already provides the fastest possible protection of applications running on 3PAR by directly connecting to secondary StoreOnce data protection systems through patented block-level integration. RMC is part of 3PAR’s all-inclusive licensing model and has now been enhanced with a new Express Restore feature, which enables 15x faster data recovery[8] from on-prem or off-prem StoreOnce repositories. RMC has also now been integrated with Veeam Explorer so customers can recover application items such as e-mails, documents and database schemas directly from RMC-V Express Protect backups.

Many customers moving to an all-flash datacenter are looking for ways to maximize return on those investments. For some that includes changing how they utilize data stored as backup copies. The new Nimble Secondary Flash Array (SFA) allows customers to put their backup and copy data to work for secondary applications. The system brings together always-on deduplication and compression to lower capacity costs for backup with flash-optimized performance and zero-copy cloning to run production workloads like dev/test, QA and analytics.

Price and Availability

  • HPE 3PAR StoreServ 9450 will be available June 2017 with US street pricing starting at $74,840.
  • HPE MSA 2050 will be available June 2017 with US street pricing starting at $7,750.

  • Doctors currently relying on unsafe channels to send sensitive clinical information about patients
  • The MedShr app was designed specifically to offer doctors a secure, encrypted channel for case discussion

LONDON, UK – May 23, 2017 — / — In the wake of the recent NHS cyber attacks, MedShr today calls on all medical professionals to think twice before sending patient images or information via Facebook, SMS or Whatsapp. Founder & CEO of MedShr, Dr Asif Qasim, expressed concern that many medical professionals are using unsafe channels to discuss clinical cases, in breach of official GMC guidelines. This puts patient images and private clinical information at risk of hackers and misuse.

Clinical case discussion is an essential aspect of most medical professionals’ daily practice and continuing medical education, with discussions today often taking place via smartphone. A recent study by Imperial College found that many doctors and nurses had sent patient-related clinical information over their smartphones; 64.7% of doctors had used SMS, 33.1% had used app-based messaging, and 46% had used their smartphone camera & picture messaging. But this practice puts both medics and patients at risk: clinical images aren’t stored securely, usually staying on the medic’s phone camera library, may not be properly anonymised to protect patient privacy, and there’s no record of consent. A lost phone or hacked iCloud account could risk those sensitive images being widely distributed.

These issues of patient privacy and information governance are key principles of MedShr – a system developed specifically to allow clinical case discussion in a secure, GMC-compliant, professional network. All clinical images on MedShr are anonymous and require patient consent, which can be obtained easily in-app. Clinical photos can be taken directly through MedShr to leave no copy on the medic’s smartphone. All clinical images, case information & patient consent forms are encrypted in secure cloud storage. In addition, all members must be verified as doctors or medical professionals before they can access the platform.

“We aim to provide a safe and secure digital environment for clinical case discussion while protecting patient privacy and operating within GMC guidelines,” says Dr Qasim. MedShr helps doctors, medical students & healthcare professionals make the most of smartphone technology and peer-to-peer learning opportunities in a secure, easy, compliant way.

HubStor delivers extremely fast file server recovery from the cloud without the need for local cache copies or expensive downloads

KANATA, ON – May 23, 2017 — / — HubStor Inc. today announced new cloud backup and recovery capabilities designed to streamline enterprise backup and disaster recovery strategies for the cloud era.

Organizations store vast amounts of unstructured data which they seldom delete. The result is a storage footprint with 80% to 90% of the data being inactive or rarely accessed. Traditional backup systems will make a copy of whatever is on the source system, and in a recovery scenario, the recovery time objective (RTO) lengthens because the backup restores the full copy containing mostly stale data onto the source system.

The problem intensifies as companies look to use the cloud for backup and as an offsite data protection strategy. Not only does the customer pay for all the data transfer and storage activity to fetch the large backups containing mostly old data, but they also incur a significant hit on their network connection to download it.

Current cloud backup best practices will mitigate having to restore from the cloud by recommending that you keep your most recent backups on-premises. As a result, backup to the cloud is primarily used for non-critical data, and traditional backup is used for critical data that requires a short recovery time objective. However, this is expensive and time-consuming to configure and maintain.

HubStor’s patent-pending cloud recovery innovation sidesteps the physical limits as to how much data can be moved in a given amount of time over a network connection, thus making cloud backup a viable standard approach.

HubStor is an archive system or secondary storage tier in the cloud that, like a backup, captures a point-in-time snapshot of the source system on an automated schedule. In essence, HubStor maintains a synthetic full backup in the cloud with deduplication, compression, and encryption.

Unlike traditional backup, HubStor also includes the ability to virtualize or ghost targeted subsets of the data in the data source through policies. This results in converting the stale data into small pointer files which seamlessly perform a recall when a user or application opens them.

In a data loss recovery scenario, whether data has already been ghosted or not, HubStor now offers the flexibility to leverage data ghosting to recover a portion of the dataset from the archive/secondary storage tier as full originals while everything else virtualizes in the source as seamless pointers.

This innovation by HubStor provides the following game-changing advantages:

  • Shortens recovery time – HubStor delivers faster recovery than traditional methods because it enables file backups to virtualize in primary storage through seamless pointer files. This is a local operation that rapidly executes. Then, the most recent data fully restores from the backup to provide users with optimal access to current information assets. Effectively, users gain access to the entire dataset, and it was only necessary to physically restore a small percentage of the backup.
  • Minimizes cloud egress – HubStor avoids substantial impact on the network connection by sizing down what physically recovers from the cloud backup (which also means incurring significantly less data transfer fees).
  • Eliminates the need for local backup storage – HubStor removes the need for local copies as a means of minimizing cloud recovery activity.

In the cloud backup, there is a minimum of three synchronous copies of the data, and clients can upgrade to have three additional copies in a secondary cloud datacenter.

For organizations concerned with malicious or accidental activity against their cloud storage account, HubStor can also create a backup copy of the data in a shadow cloud storage account.

HubStor’s advantages as an ongoing synthetic full backup of file share data also include the following:

  1. Searchable backup for legal investigations – HubStor is a searchable backup. In legal scenarios, through a Web interface, privileged users search within the backup, manage legal hold, and collect data of interest without having to restore the full backup on-premises. This offers significant cost saving opportunities for organizations that still rely on tape backups in their litigation readiness strategy.
  2. Ransomware recovery – HubStor provides point-in-time recovery to restore file shares to a last known healthy state.
  3. Overall storage reduction – HubStor’s data ghosting capabilities can also be used to provide proactive storage tiering to curtail the capacity demands in primary storage radically. With HubStor’s ability to recover data as seamless stubs, organizations can repurpose the primary storage capacity they reclaim or defer spending on new storage.
  4. VM and application backup acceleration – By virtualizing the inactive application data and the stale data within virtual machines, HubStor optimizes other backup and replication operations.
  5. Offsite data protection for database and VM backups – Clients use HubStor to automatically capture backup files into Azure for their offsite data protection strategy.
  6. Application retirement – Clients also use HubStor as a low-cost, long-term archive for legacy application data, and for decommissioning old hardware.

“Our new cloud recovery features position HubStor as a leading alternative to traditional backup,” said Greg Campbell, CTO, HubStor. “When you compare the cost, value, and effort between HubStor and classic backup and recovery methods, what HubStor now offers is truly game-changing.”

The new HubStor cloud recovery features are available now. Existing HubStor clients gain access to the functionality by just downloading the latest version of the HubStor Export Utility following an update of their HubStor tenant.

About HubStor
HubStor helps organizations transform their storage, archiving, search, and data protection processes with the cloud to reduce costs and improve the security of mission-critical data assets. HubStor is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivered on Microsoft Azure. Organizations use HubStor’s cloud storage solution for a broad spectrum of use cases, including searchable cloud backup and recovery, file system archiving and seamless storage tiering, evidence management, SMTP journaling for Office 365, and WORM storage in the cloud.

Award-winning data backup appliances support customers with FIPS 140-2 security requirements and can meet security controls for FedRAMP, allowing for simple and secure data backup in the cloud

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – May 23, 2017 — / – STORServer, a leading provider of proven enterprise data backup solutions, is now offering FIPS-compliant cloud backup for the government market. This cloud backup solution also meets security controls for FedRAMP. With IBM Spectrum Protect™, formerly known as Tivoli Storage Manager or TSM, government agencies can now simply and securely embrace the advantages of the cloud for their data backup needs.

With STORServer’s cloud backup, government agencies can eliminate their reliance on tape storage and transition to a more efficient and reliable backup solution. Eliminating tape also removes the manual intervention roadblocks and element of human error from the disaster recovery requirement of moving a copy of data offsite. Instead of waiting for tapes to be picked up and taken offsite, government agencies using cloud backup have their data automatically moved offsite when replication takes place. This means data will immediately be transferred from a user’s computing environment to a STORServer-supported, highly disaster-tolerant cloud environment.

STORServer’s cloud offering is ideal for the long-term data retention requirements of government agencies. Data from traffic cameras, park cameras, police body cameras and other sources that have longer or indefinite storage requirements drastically increase on-site data backup costs. With the cloud, government agencies can securely retain this data while eliminating the need for manual intervention.

The scalability offered by the cloud is a significant, paradigm-changing advantage for government agencies. Rather than purchasing a mandatory minimum unit of storage hardware that must be shipped and integrated, users with STORServer’s cloud backup solution can granularly and infinitely scale their storage to meet data growth and retention.

Bill Smoldt, president and CEO of STORServer explained, “By utilizing cloud backup instead of tape, data backup costs can be considered an operational expenditure as opposed to a capital expenditure, which is an advantageous move for many government agencies.”

With IBM’s two federally-certified SoftLayer cloud data centers in Dallas, Texas, and Ashburn, Virginia, STORServer’s government agency customers are assured that their data is being backed up at locations designed specifically to meet federal security and high availability requirements. STORServer’s cloud backup solution is powered by IBM Spectrum Protect, which in addition to supporting SoftLayer, also supports  Cloud Object Storage System™ (formerly known as Cleversafe®), Amazon AWS S3 and OpenStack Swift.
