Cloud Continuity for PCs, SIRIS 4 and a Superior Partner Experience Showcased, Enabling Faster Performance and Ease of Use for MSPs

SAN DIEGO, CA – DattoCon – June 18, 2019 – /BackupReview.info/ — Datto, Inc., the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the availability of more than 20 new products and enhancements at DattoCon19, the largest open-ecosystem MSP-centric event in the world. The annual event, in its seventh year, attracted more than 2,900 attendees who simplify and manage technology for small businesses (SMBs) around the world.

“Our announcements today at DattoCon spotlight how Datto continues to innovate in our core product lines that are purpose-built for MSPs,” said Emily Glass, Chief Product Officer. “Prime examples include Datto’s cloud-first Cloud Continuity for PCs which extends our capabilities to protect all SMB data and Datto Networking’s new high-performance Layer 3 switches. These additions help MSPs address critical IT issues for clients while creating margin opportunities for partners to grow their managed services.”

Some highlights of the more than 20 new products or enhancements include:

Cloud Continuity for PCs: Even with so much data being centralized on file servers and SaaS applications, a significant amount of important business data still lives on unprotected employee PCs. Cloud Continuity for PCs is an image-based, all-in-one business continuity solution for PCs that utilizes Datto’s new patent-pending technology. It takes continuous backups and protects critical PC data from ransomware attacks, lost or stolen devices or accidental deletion. MSPs can now recover individual files or an entire PC image without the need for a local appliance, access reliable backups of PC data, and virtualize backup images in the Datto Cloud. With this latest addition to Datto’s award-winning Unified Continuity suite of products, MSPs now only need one vendor to protect all critical business data for SMBs.

SIRIS 4: The next generation of Datto’s flagship BCDR appliances are here. Built for MSPs, SIRIS 4 is the most powerful, reliable, all-in-one BCDR solution to date. SIRIS 4 is optimized for MSP efficiency with improved backup resiliency and verification, enhanced virtualization performance, and increased device durability. These new devices include the Intel® Xeon® D Skylake and 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon Scalable Cascade Lake processors which feature additional cores and a dedicated write cache (SLOG). The enhanced computing power means the SIRIS 4 can virtualize 50 percent faster than previous devices, virtualize more agents per device, and ensure clients’ heavy-duty apps run seamlessly.

Datto SaaS Protection for O365 with Vade Email Security: In partnership with Vade Secure, the global leader in predictive email defense for Office 365, Datto SaaS Protection users can now leverage AI-based threat detection, powered by threat intelligence from 600 million mailboxes globally to detect emerging phishing, spear phishing and malware attacks. Available bundled with Datto SaaS Protection, this offering provides advanced email filtering natively within Office 365.

Improved Partner Experience with Datto SaaS Protection: Additional enhancements reinforce Datto’s commitment to an MSP-friendly SaaS Protection solution with a new pricing model and MSP incentives, a streamlined client onboarding process and a redesigned SaaS Protection Backup Status page with aggregate client metrics that saves time when checking account status.

Layer 3 Switches and Enhanced Cloud Management: Datto Networking continues to be the most MSP-centric networking product line available on the market. The newly launched E310 Series Switches are fully cloud-managed and deliver enterprise performance at an affordable price. Partner-requested features include Layer 3 routing, 10Gb SFP+ with Direct Attach Cable (DAC) support, and enhanced security features, including support for 802.1x radius authentication. This next generation of switches enables Datto Networking partners to provide more options to their SMB clients and helps them deliver more powerful networking capabilities as managed services.

Also new is Network Manager–Datto Networking’s completely redesigned cloud management platform featuring a streamlined and more efficient layout, an audit log to track every management or system action taken, and events and alerts. This also includes native push notifications via the mobile application to inform MSPs of important device updates.

Datto RMM HTML5 Remote Control Beta and Datto Networking Integration: MSPs often rely on remote takeover technology to troubleshoot for their clients. To improve this experience for Datto RMM (Remote Monitoring and Management) partners, Datto announced the launch of the BETA of a brand new HTML5 based remote control technology that allows support technicians to remote control a device in under five seconds from any device using just their browser.

A new, native integration with Datto Networking opens the opportunity for MSPs to monitor and control all available network and power devices directly within Datto RMM. Also new is an entirely rewritten UI, beginning with user-configurable dashboards and the introduction of a new dark mode that will be applied throughout the platform in the coming months. The user interface will deliver new ways for MSPs to intuitively unlock data and work faster within their estate.

Autotask PSA User Experience: All new account dashboards display a real-time executive summary of accounts within Autotask CRM, giving users an instant understanding of the health of their accounts and any actions that need to be taken. The new Opportunity UI provides users with a completely configurable layout of sales opportunities, including a timeline to display sales velocity, a checklist with steps to ensure conversion, and an “insights” rail to understand related items. LiveMobile 2.0 for Android was also announced and provides Android users with native PSA capabilities while in the field. Dark mode is now available throughout the product.

More product announcements announced at DattoCon19 can be found on Datto’s blog – https://www.datto.com/blog/datto-announces-significant-updates-at-dattocon19

Solution Enables VMware Cloud Providers to Offer New Value-add Services Based on Fully Native S3-Compatible Storage

SAN MATEO, CA – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian® today announced a fully native S3-compatible object storage solution for VMware Cloud Providers that is managed directly from VMware vCloud Director, a key component of the VMware Cloud Provider Platform. The Cloudian solution gives VMware Cloud Providers a limitlessly scalable, cost-effective and feature-rich storage foundation for delivering new and enhanced value-add services to their customers. In turn, these services will enable customers to achieve their capacity-intensive data protection, management, and analytics objectives by leveraging the rapidly growing ecosystem of S3-compatible applications.

Within the public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market, IDC forecasts that cloud storage services revenues will reach $20 billion in 2019 and more than double to $44 billion by 2022.[1] At the same time, the S3 API has emerged as the de facto standard for cloud storage and the common language for integrating on-premises and cloud storage in an increasing hybrid cloud-dominant world. Independent cloud providers are well-positioned to capitalize on these market opportunities because of their specialization, multi-source flexibility and geographic diversity.

In addition to fully native S3 API compatibility, Cloudian offers the ability to start small and grow without interruption to an exabyte of storage. Other key Cloudian features include multi-tenant resource pooling, integrated management tools such as billing and quality of service controls, data encryption and Write Once, Read Many (WORM) for security and compliance, and geo-distribution for easily managing storage across multiple data centers.

With Cloudian Object Storage for vCloud Director, VMware Cloud Providers can draw on these benefits and Cloudian’s technology solutions partnerships to deliver an enhanced range of high value-add services, including:

  • Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS).
  • Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS).
  • Archive-as-a-Service (AaaS).
  • Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS).
  • Big Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS).
  • Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS).
  • Software development.

VMware Cloud Providers can deploy Cloudian as a storage appliance or as software-defined storage anywhere in the world. In either case, vCloud Director manages the storage, all from a single location if desired, and provides native automation of workflows.

Cloudian Object Storage for vCloud Director is expected to be available in July 2019. VMware Cloud Providers can learn more about it at https://cloudian.com/vmware/

Supporting Quotes
“VMware Cloud Providers are trusted advisors for customers in their cloud journey, and VMware vCloud Director offers an open, extensible architecture that enables VMware to provide the ubiquitous digital foundation in support of our customers’ and partners’ digital transformation,” said Rajeev Bhardwaj, vice president, product management, cloud provider software business unit, at VMware. “Cloudian Object Storage for vCloud Director will further enable our partners to capture the opportunity for managed services and extend their relationship with their enterprise customers beyond providing only basic cloud infrastructure-as-a-service.”

“Our customers increasingly demand S3-compatible storage to capitalize on both the growing ecosystem and unbeatable economics of this storage technology,” said William Bell, executive vice president of products at phoenixNAP. “We can now provide the benefits of Cloudian’s proven S3-based solution within a vCloud Director-managed environment that unifies all their storage, further reinforcing the outstanding value and service we deliver.”

“For our clients, cloud is no longer a strategic goal in itself. It is simply a means to other genuinely strategic ends, whether that’s monetizing data through cloud-based data insights, managing and protecting data flows amid global collaboration, or preparing for rapid growth,” said Julian Box, founder and CEO, Calligo. “The combined Cloudian-VMware solution delivers the highly scalable, cost-effective storage platform needed to support such forward-looking data optimization goals, and as an early adopter of innovative technology, we’re excited about leveraging it to deliver even greater value in this rapidly changing cloud environment.”

“With VMware-powered clouds serving nearly 150,000 enterprise customers through its network of more than 4,000 cloud providers, VMware cloud infrastructure is driving the 4th ‘megacloud,’” said Michael Tso, CEO at Cloudian. “Through the solution announced today, Cloudian and VMware will help meet the evolving storage needs of these providers and customers. I would also note the significance of this announcement in reinforcing the S3 API as the de facto standard of public and private cloud storage, Cloudian’s leadership in S3-compatible object storage and the many benefits our technology provides, including limitless scalability, multi-tenancy, geo-distribution, and flexible data security and lifecycle management tools.”

About Cloudian
Cloudian is the most widely deployed independent provider of object storage systems, with the industry’s most advanced S3 compatibility and an extensive partnership ecosystem. Its award-winning flagship solution, HyperStore, provides limitless scalability and cloud-like technology, flexibility and economics in the data center. Cloudian’s global data fabric architecture enables enterprises to store, find and protect object and file data seamlessly across sites, both on-premises and in public clouds, within a single, unified platform.

Rubrik will enable the university to move to the cloud and protect production and research data

LONDON, UK and PALO ALTO, CA – June 19, 2019 – /BackupReview.info/ – Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, today announced it has been selected by Coventry University to protect its user and research data across Nutanix, Microsoft and AWS environments. The university will also benefit from Rubrik Polaris, the industry’s first SaaS platform for Data Management Applications, which includes GPS for global data management and Radar for quick ransomware recovery.

Coventry University is a dynamic and outward-looking institution with a tradition of teaching excellence, impactful research and bold international partnerships. Its technology acts as a key competitive differentiator to attract the country’s best students, so the university’s IT team is central to its success.

In order to future-proof its infrastructure and leverage cloud technology such as Microsoft Azure for the first time, the team decided to build a new data center as its previous on-premises environment did not offer this functionality. With the introduction of the new data center, the team needed best-of-breed technology that can scale with the university as it grows, offer disaster recovery in the cloud, and integrate with existing Nutanix and Microsoft infrastructure, including Exchange and SQL. The team also required strong cybersecurity credentials when selecting a new cloud data management platform.

Rubrik was the clear choice for Coventry University due to its agility and cloud data management innovation. The university’s team was particularly impressed by Rubrik’s immutable file system, as well as Radar’s ability to leverage machine learning to quickly recover from ransomware. With Polaris GPS creating a unified system of record, and Radar enabling ransomware recovery in a few clicks, the team could see that while backup was previously viewed as an insurance policy, Rubrik’s platform offers tangible business value.

Long term, the IT team also plans to use Rubrik to extract more value from the data they hold by leveraging additional cloud technology, such as Microsoft Office 365.

Comments on the News
“As a leading UK university, we want to use the most innovative technology and work with vendors that are developing as quickly as we are. With Polaris, we can really see how Rubrik is adding value to the backup function – it’s no longer just an insurance policy,” said Steve Rogers, Enterprise Cloud and Infrastructure Architect at Coventry University. “Polaris is what ultimately led us to choosing Rubrik. We have a very strong technological vision and we can see how Rubrik can help us get there, especially with its agile development. Rubrik is the future and that’s where we want to be.”

“We’re proud that Coventry University is choosing Rubrik to further their digital transformation and help them recover faster from threats such as ransomware,” said Martin Brown, Director of Western Europe at Rubrik. “As a progressive adopter of technology, the university very much aligns with Rubrik’s values and we look forward to developing our relationship further.”

About Rubrik
Rubrik delivers a single software platform to manage and protect data in the cloud, at the edge, and on-premises. Enterprises choose Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management software to simplify backup and recovery, accelerate cloud adoption, and enable automation at scale. As organizations of all sizes adopt cloud-first policies, they rely on Rubrik’s Polaris SaaS platform to unify data for security, governance, and compliance. For more information, visit www.rubrik.com and follow @rubrikInc on Twitter.

About Coventry University
Our teaching, staff, facilities and student experience have received a variety of awards and accolades in recent years,that we are very proud of. Coventry ranks 13th and as the country’s top modern university in the Guardian University Guide 2019, and is top in the UK – and third in Europe – for how well we engage with our students according to the Times Higher Education (THE) Europe Teaching Rankings 2018. We also earned the title ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in the 2019 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, being described as “one of the most innovative modern universities, bold with its vision of what the 21st century student experience should be”.

Customers can now create their own custom tags, and edit the tags supplied by FileShadow’s machine learning algorithms to provide accurate, fine-tuned metadata tags for faster searches

PROVO, Utah – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — FileShadow, Inc. today announces the addition of custom tagging capabilities, allowing users to organize files and photos stored in their FileShadow cloud vault by using custom search tags.

Users can select one file or as many files as they want to adjust. They can add new tags, or edit or remove any auto-generated tags that aren’t relevant to their files in the vault.

“One of the built-in features of FileShadow is an extensible metadata store. We’ve enhanced the system by allowing user editing of the metadata tags,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “With FileShadow, customers can collect all of their content, and fine-tune the metadata tags so they can efficiently locate their files.”

When a file is copied into the FileShadow vault, the service automatically generates searchable metadata for each file, including location (GPS), optical character recognition (OCR) of PDFs and machine learning (ML)-generated tags for images. By using machine learning, FileShadow provides superior search capabilities, allowing the user to find files quickly.

For example, a picture of someone golfing might automatically generate tags such as golf, golf ball, golf club, golf course, professional golfer and sand wedge, even if those terms are not in the file name.

As a result of the automated tagging feature, users can quickly find images related to their search term. With this new FileShadow update, users can also adjust the terms associated with their files. In the example above, users could add the term “putter” and delete “sand wedge,” making their tags more relevant to content depicted in the image.

FileShadow builds a metadata system for all files, regardless of their storage source. Sources include cloud storage (iCloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business) and local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops, Windows Virtual Desktops, Drobo network and direct attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices*). The service provides a single, secure vault from which to search and access files.

The FileShadow Service is free of charge for up to 100 GB of data. Subscriptions are available for more storage ($15/month for 1 TB; $25/month for 2 TB; each additional terabyte is $10/month). Subscriptions for FileShadow for Virtual Desktops are available for $25/month for 2 TB, and each additional terabyte is $10/month.

About FileShadow
FileShadow is a service that aggregates files from multiple cloud sources, Windows Virtual Desktops, Windows PC and macOS desktops, and Drobo network and direct attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices into one secure, reliable and searchable cloud vault. Compatible with Amazon WorkSpaces, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, HVE ConneXions VDI Solutions, IOXO Workspace Technology, Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop, and VMWare Horizon, FileShadow for Windows Virtual Desktop delivers thin provisioned access to the user’s vault.

Using machine learning, FileShadow provides superior indexing and searching capabilities. With FileShadow, users can quickly find any file with advanced search features such as file content, OCR of PDFs, GPS location and image searches. FileShadow is hosted on Google Cloud and IBM Cloud with storage on IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) and Wasabi’s Hot Cloud Storage, providing “11 nines” of durability for optimal file protection. FileShadow supports multiple cloud storage sources, including Windows PC and macOS desktops (including iCloud Drive files and iCloud Photos), Drobo NAS/DAS devices*, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business.

* Supported Drobo NAS products include: 5N, 5N2, B810n; DAS Products Include: 5C, 5D/5Dt, 5D3 on Windows over USB and the 5C, 5D/5Dt, 5D3, 8D for Mac.

Nuremberg, Germany – June 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Version 2.11 of the ownCloud mobile app for Android provides users with more options for flexibly accessing and organizing files which they have stored in their ownCloud. With the newly developed “Document Provider”, files stored in an ownCloud can now be opened, edited or sent directly from within other apps. In addition, the new version of the app makes uploading files more convenient thanks to the consistent use of the Android File Picker. This increases usability significantly. In order to improve further development of the app, all app users are now able to easily create and send log files. Version 2.11 of the ownCloud mobile app for Android is now available for download in Google Play Store.

More Flexibility When Accessing Files
Using a so-called “Document Provider”, files in Android can be made accessible even outside their original app. From a user’s perspective, this integration is the most important feature of the new ownCloud app version. From now on it is possible to open files stored in ownCloud directly from within other apps. This convenient file access does not require a dedicated ownCloud integration with third-party apps. A typical example would be sending a file stored in ownCloud directly from within a messaging app.

Thanks to the integration, ownCloud files and folders can now be displayed and administered using the default file handling app of the respective Android version – in Android 7 and 8 it is the “Download” app, in Android 9 it is the “Files” app. After selecting the ownCloud account from the side menu of this default file handling app, users can directly access all files from their ownCloud. This also works from within third-party apps which use the default file handling app for any file access. Operations such as renaming folders or deleting files can now be executed not only in the ownCloud app itself, but also in Android’s default file handling app. This seamless integration makes it even easier for ownCloud users to access their files on the go.

Integration of the Android File Picker
In version 2.11 of the ownCloud app for Android the custom ownCloud file picker, which previously was in use in some places, has been replaced by the native Android file picker. All upload operations now have a uniform look and feel, regardless of whether an uploaded file is selected from the local storage or from within another app.

Easier Access to Offline Files
A small but very convenient improvement is the new menu item “Available Offline” in the side menu of the app. It provides app users with direct access to all files which are kept as local copies, synchronized with ownCloud. These offline files are still available when Internet access is limited or unavailable. Being able to access them from a single location within the app makes it easier to keep track of all locally stored files without having to navigate through folder structures.

Logs for All Users
While creating log files in earlier app versions was only available to users who had debug or beta versions of the app installed, this functionality is now included in the official app available via Google Play Store. This means that from now on any regular user can actively support the development team in improving the ownCloud app for Android by providing logs for bug reports and suggestions. The logging function can be activated with only a few clicks via the developer menu.

WALTHAM, Mass. – June 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Actifio, the pioneer of copy data management software, today announced its latest customer success in solving an increasingly common challenge with the company’s recently launched Actifio GO multi-cloud copy data management SaaS platform.

“We wanted to replace our existing on-premises backup solution with an enterprise-grade, easy-to-use, backup-to-cloud SaaS platform for our VMware and Microsoft SQL databases,” explained Miguel Martinez, IT Consultant for AptivaRx, a subsidiary of Liberty Medical (recently acquired by Edgepark Medical Supplies). “We subscribed to Actifio GO SaaS after the trial in which we performed a 4-terabyte VM backup and instant mount from the cloud. We liked it a lot as it allowed us to pick any cloud, eliminated on-premises storage with direct backup to the cloud, and delivered instant mount and recovery. The pricing model was also very attractive with per-VM subscription pricing.”

Actifio is highlighting this customer success as hundreds of data innovators convene for Actifio Data Driven 2019, the company’s annual customer-focused conference for technologists and business leaders from around the globe who are driving data-intensive transformations in their organizations. The event is happening June 18-19 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston.

Actifio GO, introduced in February as the industry’s first multi-cloud copy data management SaaS platform, makes it faster and simpler to backup and restore, accelerate DevOps and analytics initiatives and meet regulatory and compliance requirements for applications on premises and in multi-cloud environments. A SaaS solution built on Actifio Sky software, Actifio GO enables enterprise backup, system, application or DevOps administrators operating in multi-cloud environments to focus on data management policies and simplify their operations by eliminating the management of software and infrastructure.

“SaaS adoption by enterprises continues to increase, fueled by a proliferation of production data across many business and IT use cases,” said John Webster, senior partner & analyst for Hybrid Cloud and Big Data at Evaluator Group. “We are seeing more enterprises moving away from traditional infrastructure and instead leveraging on- and off-premises cloud solutions that are easier to implement. At the same time, they are moving from a CAPEX to OPEX budgeting process that favors more predictable, simple subscription-based pricing models.”

Ash Ashutosh, co-founder and CEO of Actifio, said, “We are hearing from more and more customers that Actifio GO is delivering an amazing user experience and resulting in business value at cloud scale, cloud speed and cloud agility. They need to manage and instantly access their copy data in any cloud platform, for any multi-cloud application and have that ‘self-service cloud experience.’ We spent many cycles working closely with our customers and cloud partners to integrate pioneering multi-cloud operational automation technologies with the battle-tested data virtualization and data pipelining technologies found in the Actifio Sky platform. Early adoption is confirming that this breakthrough solution has been brought to market at a time when the need for it is growing rapidly.”

Datto SaaS Protection with Vade Email Security for O365 offers MSPs comprehensive protection against data loss and unknown email threats

SAN DIEGO, CA – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Vade Secure, the global leader in predictive email defense, and Datto, the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), today announced a partnership and joint product bundle available exclusively to Datto’s MSP partners worldwide. Datto SaaS Protection with Vade Email Security for O365 combines Datto’s cloud-to-cloud backup solution with Vade Secure’s native, AI-based email security solution for Office 365, allowing MSPs to protect their clients at the highest point of vulnerability and recover data from any point in time.

According to IDC1, Microsoft Office 365 is the most widely adopted email solution, with a 54% share of the overall email applications market. The ubiquity of Office 365 – combined with the lucrativeness of user credentials, which provide a single entry point to the entire platform – has made Microsoft the #1 phished brand for four straight quarters2. On top of email-borne threats, small businesses using Office 365 are at risk of data loss from operational errors, disgruntled employees, ransomware attacks, canceled app licenses and most commonly: human error.

Advanced Email Filtering for Office 365 Combined with Secure, Reliable Backup
Vade Secure for Office 365 uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect highly targeted phishing, spear phishing and malware attacks. The solution prevents more email threats from reaching users’ inboxes than any other product by leveraging real-time threat intelligence from 600 million mailboxes globally to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals. Combining Vade Secure’s advanced email filtering and Datto SaaS Protection, this new joint offering provides MSPs with a comprehensive solution for clients’ Office 365 environments that is easy to deploy, manage and sell.

“We’re excited to partner with Vade to launch their technology in the MSP channel so MSPs can address the largest vulnerability in security perimeters today–email,” said Tim Weller, CEO of Datto. “Unlike others, our joint offering natively integrates with O365 and brings a sophisticated, AI-based threat detection that’s proven to be accurate in the world’s most demanding ISPs. It’s right for our MSP partner base because it’s in high demand, simple to manage and offers new and increasing margin opportunity that capitalizes on the growth of Office 365.”

Datto Partnership an Extension of Vade’s MSP Strategy Tied to New Funding
The partnership with Datto follows closely on the heels of Vade Secure announcing it has entered into a €70 million financing agreement with General Catalyst. Vade Secure plans to use the investment to accelerate its product innovation and global expansion, with a particular focus on building out a go-to-market strategy focused on servicing SMB customers through MSPs. To execute on this strategy, Vade Secure has added several executives to its board, including Datto Founder Austin McChord; former Akamai Technologies CEO Paul Sagan; and General Catalyst partner Matthew Brennan. Stephan Dietrich, Co-Founder/CEO of Neolane, Inc. (acquired by Adobe), will remain on the company’s Board to serve as Chairman.

“While small businesses are increasingly targeted with email-borne threats, they lack the budget and technical resources to manage complex, customizable enterprise-grade email security solutions,” said Georges Lotigier, Vade Secure’s CEO. “SMBs are looking to MSPs to fill this cybersecurity gap but what’s critical for both is a solution that just works. Through our partnership with Datto, we’re offering small businesses powerful, AI-based threat detection used by the world’s largest enterprises—through a solution that offers instant activation and simple, set-it-and-forget-it configuration for MSPs.”

Discover Datto SaaS Protection with Vade Email Security for O365 at DattoCon19
Datto SaaS Protection with Vade Email Security for O365 was unveiled today at the DattoCon19 conference taking place in San Diego, CA. Visit the Vade Secure booth #1A or the Datto Tech Hub to learn more about the bundle and to see how Vade Secure for Office 365 can help MSPs strengthen protection for their Office 365 clients.

2 – Vade Secure, “Phishers’ Favorites: It’s Lonely at the Top: Microsoft Remains the #1 Impersonated Brand in Phishing Attacks,” May 2019

About Vade Secure

Cohesity Platform Cuts Backup Times From 12 Hours to 12 Minutes and Unifies Global Data Management on Trusted HPE Hardware

SAN JOSE, CA – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity today announced that the City of Hamilton, one of the ten most populous municipalities in Canada, achieved massive improvements to its backup and recovery and data management processes with a joint solution from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Cohesity.

The City of Hamilton needed a better way to back up its primary infrastructure, which consists of approximately 600 servers with 400TB of production data running across two data centers on HPE Nimble Storage. The IT division, which supports more than 75 different public services for the City of Hamilton, including public health, emergency services, and garbage and recycling, initially chose point products for backups to replace an outdated process of backing up data to magnetic tape. The point products were effective in the short term, but the team ran into problems when they tried to scale up, frequently running out of storage capacity and missing targeted backup windows. When it came to backing up data tied to key public services, this was unacceptable.

After HPE announced an OEM partnership with Cohesity to empower customers to more efficiently back up their data and solve critical challenges pertaining to mass data fragmentation, the city’s IT team decided to deploy Cohesity DataPlatform as a repository for the massive volumes of backup data using third-party backup software. As performance and scale problems with the third-party backup software continued, the team opted to use Cohesity DataProtect to handle backup and recovery natively – deploying it as a modern and validated HPE solution running on HPE ProLiant servers.

With the switch to Cohesity DataProtect, the city achieved a highly efficient backup and recovery process while greatly simplifying management of its global data infrastructure. File server backups that used to take 12 hours are now completed in 12 minutes, and the backup window went from five days to five hours. By improving global deduplication with Cohesity, backups of the city’s Microsoft Exchange email system shrunk to approximately one-sixth of their previous size, with additional efficiencies realized with the city’s file, object, and application servers.

“Throughput and capacity are amazing, and leveraging technology like Change Block Tracking gives us optimized performance levels we have never seen in our environment,” said Jonathon Mancini, supervisor, Data Center Operations, City of Hamilton. “The Cohesity solution is the secret sauce that makes our backup infrastructure better.”

In addition, the performance and scale improvements with Cohesity saved more than 20 hours of staff time per week, allowing IT employees to focus on important new projects rather than dealing with cost overruns, complexity, and compliance risks. With Cohesity Helios, the IT team can now manage and automate infrastructure across its entire environment from a single pane of glass and monitor any changes in their backup data to prevent a potential ransomware attack. Deploying the complete Cohesity solution, validated and sold by HPE, also eliminated expenses associated with licensing, third-party backup software, and managing disparate hardware. As a government agency, the City of Hamilton has strict procurement rules, and the ability to purchase the Cohesity solution on HPE – an established “vendor of record” for the government – allowed the IT team to avoid a complex and time-consuming order process and use the HPE hardware they knew and trusted.

“We have combined innovative software from Cohesity and industry-leading infrastructure solutions and services from HPE to deliver incredible data management capabilities and unmatched benefits to forward-thinking organizations like the City of Hamilton,” said Patrick Osborne, vice president, Big Data and Secondary Storage, HPE. “With a streamlined procurement process for a wide range of certified joint solutions, we are seeing a growing number of enterprises realize the value of the combination of Cohesity and HPE technologies.”

With a reliable and efficient backup process in place, the City of Hamilton is now looking to expand the use cases for its Cohesity deployment to cover file shares and cloud archiving, further reducing mass data fragmentation complexities. The IT team also plans to leverage Cohesity MarketPlace to download applications that run directly on Cohesity DataPlatform to analyze backup data and uncover new insights.

In total, the City of Hamilton realized numerous benefits with its Cohesity deployment on HPE servers:

  • Backup times for incremental backups reduced by 60x – from 12 hours to 12 minutes
  • Faster restores with the ability to find any file across 5.7PB of backup data within 30 seconds, saving several hours of staff time each week
  • Substantial reduction in storage utilization, using just one-sixth of disk space compared to previous solutions, thanks to global, variable deduplication and compression
  • Combined savings on capital and operational expenses from licensing, infrastructure, and staff efficiencies
  • Flexibility to seamlessly extend on-premises data centers to hybrid and public clouds

For more information:

  • Read the case study, “Cohesity Provides City of Hamilton Modern Backup and Recovery with Time Savings of 700%,” on Cohesity’s website.
  • Listen to the HPE podcast, “City of Hamilton Dramatically Reduces Their Backup Window” with Calvin Zito.
  • Read Calvin Zito’s blog post about the City of Hamilton on HPE’s website.

About Cohesity
Cohesity ushers in a new era in data management that solves a critical challenge facing businesses today: mass data fragmentation. The vast majority of enterprise data — backups, archives, file shares, object stores, and data used for test/dev and analytics — sits in fragmented infrastructure silos that makes it hard to protect, expensive to manage, and difficult to analyze. Cohesity consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform, spanning on-premises, cloud, and the edge, and uniquely empowers organizations to run apps on that platform — making it easier than ever to back up and extract insights from data. Cohesity is a 2019 CNBC Disruptor and was named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. Visit our website and blog, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn and like us on Facebook.

GB Labs, innovators of powerful and intelligent storage solutions for the media and entertainment industries, has integrated San Mateo, California-based Backblaze’s B2 cloud storage service with GB Labs automation contained in its CORE.4 OS.

READING, UK – 17 June 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — GB Labs, innovators of powerful and intelligent storage solutions for the media and entertainment industries, has integrated San Mateo, California-based Backblaze’s B2 cloud storage service with GB Labs automation contained in its CORE.4 OS.

GB Labs automation enable users to script useful workflows at the folder level, which streamlines tasks that would otherwise require tedious and repetitive manual intervention.

There are approximately 100 functions that can be scripted using GB Labs technology in a flexible, easy-to-use, drag-and-drop manner to automate multiple, user-specific workflow tasks. With the high performance Backblaze B2 backup, GB Labs users can use GB Labs automation scripts to sync data with GB Labs replication or use Backblaze B2 as a source for replication down to local storage.

With GB Labs automation in place, users can instruct their intelligent storage system to watch a particular folder and ensure all files are copied or moved direct to their Backblaze B2 Cloud Service; Nebula; SohoNet; Dropbox; or Amazon Cloud Service. In this instance, Backblaze users can archive rushes direct to the cloud and through GB Labs automation receive an email notification that the archive process has been successful.

Backblaze VP of Sales and Product Nilay Patel said, “The GB Labs automation solution in CORE.4 is compelling because it solves challenges that creative customers face. By integrating Backblaze B2 into GB Labs solutions, customers now have a simple and powerful way to extend their creative workflows to the cloud.”

For many years, media and entertainment companies have utilised cloud services to strengthen and streamline backup and archiving strategies. However, what began as a simple backup to tape became complicated with the widespread demand for 4K, UHD and 8K content. As media files became ever larger, so did the task of backing up projects, most of which were no longer able to be done during non-production hours.

With LTO-7 tape data storage limited to a maximum of 300MB/s write, a different approach had to be taken. This came in the form of disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) workflows, whereby the copy from online storage to near line storage could happen quickly enough overnight, and then the copy from near line to tape could take place at any time, freeing up online storage to continue production.

GB Labs Chief Product Officer Duncan Beattie added, “Working with Backblaze B2 to automate backup in the most efficient way possible gives clients a very cost effective and highly flexible cloud service. This not only expands the capabilities of the GB Labs toolset, but also offers a very achievable hybrid cloud backup plan by combining the benefits of Backblaze B2 and GB Labs CORE.4 OS.”

About GB Labs
GB Labs is the global leader in Intelligent Media Storage, creating a shared storage ecosystem for the media industry. By understanding real-world industry problems, cutting-edge technologies have been developed for the unique “CORE” software that fulfils end users’ needs. Regardless of where the production is being filmed, how big the team is or the size of budget, GB Labs can provide a solution to ensure deadlines are met and throughout the whole process, content is secure.

Sixth school opened since the launch of the School Initiative program in 2018

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced that in partnership with the Italian charity Don Bosco 3A, it has opened a new school in Nuevo Chimbote, Peru. This is the sixth school Acronis has helped open. The Institución Educativa Virgen de las Gracias will provide a quality educational environment, including free education, learning materials, uniforms, and lunch for about 230 children, chosen from among the neediest in the community.

Compared to other Latin American countries, education in Peru falls short. There are many reasons for this, including the high costs of matriculation and school uniforms, the lack of sanitary facilities, early pregnancies, child labor, and poor learning outcomes. Based on data from the 2017 Educational Census, conducted by the Ministry of Education (Minedu), only 548 educational institutions in the region are in good condition, and only 18 perecent of those school in good condition are located in Santa and Nuevo Chimbote.

“The Acronis Foundation is dedicated to creating, protecting, and sharing knowledge around the world,” said Patrick Hurley, Acronis’ Vice President and General Manager of the Americas. “With the support of Don Bosco 3A, the opening of the new school in Nuevo Chimbote helps to extend knowledge and opportunity to a region that was in dire need of it.”

Nuevo Chimbote is located about 590 km north of Peru’s capital, Lima, and once was a flourishing district in the early 1940s. Unfortunately, a terrible earthquake, overfishing of the bay, and a series of other problems have led to rampant social and economic difficulties, including low-employment, extreme poverty, child malnutrition, and an underfunded educational system.

“We are honored to work with the Acronis Foundation to help support their initiative to bring free quality education to the neediest communities and children,” said Padre Samuele Fattini from Don Bosco 3A. “Education is knowledge and knowledge is power, so with this new school, we are giving the children of Chimbote an opportunity to learn about the world and unlock their true potential.”

“The community was the main initiator of the project. They’re deeply involved in the planning and implementation process of the new school. This involvement and ownership will guarantee the sustainability and high impact of the project,” said Christian Jaeger, Project Manager of the Acronis Foundation. “We are sure that many future generations of Peruvians will enjoy free education in the new facilities.”

The Institución Educativa Virgen de las Gracias will now have eight classrooms that will provide educational services to 100 new students. Additionally, there new school will house one meeting room, proper sanitary facilities for boys, girls, and teachers, and an improved schoolyard for sport, dance, and theater lessons. The school was constructed with durable materials to withstand the extreme local weather conditions and ensure sustainability into the future.

“I really look forward to teaching my classes in well-equipped rooms and addressing the needs of every single child. It´s not just about a daily structure and a safe learning environment, but also about the opportunity to provide quality education. These kids need to gain important skills to be able to break the cycle of poverty,” said one of the school’s teachers.

“CloudNAS customers are already enjoying the benefits of cloud scalability and NAS performance for their files,” said Paul Tien, founder and CEO of Morro Data. “However, some of our customers would also like to migrate their domain controllers to the cloud. JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service centralizes and simplifies identity management with no need for on-premise servers. By integrating JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service with Morro Data’s CloudNAS, both the domain controller and the traditional NAS are upgraded with modern cloud alternatives without sacrificing performance or control.”

Morro Data’s Cloud NAS solution modernizes enterprise file sharing with a scalable hybrid cloud architecture. Connected through a global file system, CloudNAS CacheDrive gateways are deployed on premise to accelerate file access from the cloud and sync among multiple sites while maintaining a fast, secure, and familiar NAS interface. Applications for CloudNAS include multi-site file server consolidation, cloud backup and archive for files and VM, as well as design collaboration. Cloud storage providers supported include AWS, Wasabi, Backblaze, and Microsoft SharePoint.

  • Identity Management and Access Control: Centrally secure and manage user identities and credentials. Connect users with all of their resources with a single password.
  • Same NAS interface, performance, and control: CacheDrive maintains the familiar NAS interface with data in the cloud. JumpCloud’s cloud-based LDAP directory performs the same control as Active Directory, providing secure authentication and authorization for NAS users.
  • Sync globally: CloudNAS intelligently syncs files globally and enables remote team collaboration. JumpCloud eliminates need to have separate domain controllers at multiple sites.
  • Consolidate with Single Namespace and Unlimited Capacity: Sync, Replicate, Archive shares store different data types in single namespace.
  • JumpCloud for Office 365: CloudNAS leverages JumpCloud’s Office 365 integration to allow authentication for its SharePoint Sync function which accelerates the access of SharePoint document libraries with on premise caching and syncs the files to separate cloud storage for backup.
  • Other CloudNAS Functions: Morro Audit for compliance, RTC for Revit for remote team collaboration for architects and engineers, Morro Migrate to automatically move data from on premise servers to cloud with minimal down time.
  • Low Deployment Cost and low TCO: Choice of Business, Enterprise, and Design Collaboration plans with physical gateways or VMware or Hyper-V VMs.

“CloudNAS and JumpCloud Directory-as-a-Service presents a powerful and very progressive combination of cloud-based technologies for sysadmins and IT personnel,” said Greg Keller, Chief Strategy Officer at JumpCloud. ”JumpCloud and Morro Data’s philosophies of ‘lifting and shifting’ traditional infrastructure like file servers or domain controllers to the cloud demonstrates our common belief that sysadmins should be focused on solving bigger problems for their companies, not minding servers. We are glad to have Morro Data in our network of certified solutions for our common customers.”

Key Senior Executives to Support Company Growth

SAN DIEGO, CA – DattoCon – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datto Inc., the leading global provider of IT solutions delivered through the managed service provider (MSP) channel, announced several key leadership positions. To help guide the company along its path of continued global growth, Datto has appointed a new Chief Sales Officer, Managing Director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Customer Experience Officer (CXO).

To establish and drive Datto’s global go-to-market strategy and execution for all Datto solutions, the company welcomes Sanjay Singh as Chief Sales Officer. Singh brings more than 20 years of operational and general management experience and is focused on growing the business across the globe. Prior to joining Datto, he was Chief Operating Officer at Unbxd, Inc., a product-discovery platform that uses artificial intelligence to anticipate and influence buying behaviors. Singh also worked for Akamai Technologies for 18 years, most recently as Senior Vice President of Global Operations and previously held roles in sales, services, and support.

Datto has appointed Mark Simon as the new Managing Director of EMEA, where he will lead in a region that has experienced growth of more than 1,600 MSP partners in the last 15 months. In this role, Simon is responsible for sales strategy and execution as well as leadership of Datto’s growing EMEA presence. Simon joins Datto with 20 years of international experience, including 14 years at Toluna, a technology provider of digital consumer insights, where he held various leadership roles, including Managing Director, North America, Managing Director, UK and Global Head of Products.

Gartner predicts that the overall external IT spend of small-to-medium business (SMB) will reach $1.1 trillion by 2020 and that SMBs invest a higher proportion of IT spend on external IT solutions and services than large enterprises. Datto’s key hires will help the company stay ahead of the growing demands placed on MSPs globally to provide these services to their SMB clients. Today, Datto:

.

RAMSEY, NJ – June 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Effective backup strategies are critical in this age of security hazards. While a proactive approach to cloud security can prevent the bulk of issues that might necessitate use of your backups, it’s still important to have a plan in place for the worst-case scenario.

Cloud computing providers offer valuable peace of mind via multiple backup strategies, the most effective of which are detailed below:

Virtualization. An inherently flexible approach to data backup, virtualization allows enterprises to tailor their security strategy according to the unique demands of their environment and industry. This approach involves virtual versions of critical devices or networks, which can be run in layers fully abstracted from the original hardware. This degree of separation holds a myriad of benefits, including minimal deployment costs, power savings, full resource utilization, and improved security.

On-Premise Backups. On premise backups can prove beneficial when cloud or virtualized solutions are unavailable. Stored in the same geographic location as the server itself, these backups offer instantaneous access to data that could otherwise prove out of reach. Although vulnerable to natural disasters and other security concerns, on premise systems can play a valuable role in comprehensive backup strategies.

Cloud Backups. The cloud has completely changed how enterprises approach backup. Once relegated to on premise systems or virtualization, today’s organizations can take advantage of the many opportunities the modern cloud provides. Cloud solutions offer the greatest value to enterprises looking to leverage a hybrid cloud strategy; this approach minimizes startup costs while ensuring seamless integration into an already functioning backup system.

3-2-1 Strategy. Why settle for just one approach to data backup? Each method holds its own unique benefits, but each also comes accompanied by at least one notable downside. Modern 3-2-1 strategies allow enterprises to make the most of multiple backup approaches, thereby removing many of the concerns that could arise if just one backup solution is pursued.

As its name suggests, this solution involves the use of three different backup strategies. Two of these should be local but maintained on different mediums, while a third system should remain entirely offsite.

The various backup strategies highlighted above can play an integral role in maintaining a secure and streamlined digital environment. By having a reliable backup strategy on hand, enterprises can minimize downtime and reduce the likelihood of falling prey to ransomware attacks. While preferred backup solutions may vary from one organization to the next, no company can escape the need for developing this critical security protocol.

Service providers gain increased efficiency and accessibility through new and expanding integrations

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – June 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today at IT Nation Explore, ConnectWise’s partner conference, that the Acronis Cyber Cloud service provider platform will now feature native integration with ConnectWise Control. In addition, Acronis is expanding the features and functionality available in some of ConnectWise’s solutions that are already integrated with the platform. These integrations mean service providers using ConnectWise and Acronis Cyber Cloud can streamline their business and deliver new generation cyber protection services with seamless access to ConnectWise Manage, ConnectWise Automate, and ConnectWise Control.

The new integration with ConnectWise Control enables users to provide the Acronis Cyber Cloud backup service to existing customers and create new Acronis Cyber Cloud customers on the fly. The ConnectWise Manage and ConnectWise Automate integrations will feature a number of improvements, which will be introduced in Acronis Cyber Cloud’s next update.

“Acronis’ core mission is to protect all data, wherever it is. That means ensuring all individuals, businesses, and service providers have access to easy, efficient, secure cyber protection,” said Pat Hurley, Vice President and General Manager of the Americas at Acronis. “As we’ve pursued the vision of total cyber protection, ConnectWise has been a critical partner. This new integration and the enhancements to our existing integrations demonstrates Acronis’ continued commitment to our relationship with ConnectWise, and the protection of their customers’ data, applications and systems.”

Modern Cyber Protection for Modern Service Providers
These integrations between Acronis and ConnectWise represent a clear advantage for service providers. By using a single platform for all their needs, service providers can simultaneously expand their service capabilities while decreasing the emerging complexity, cost, and security concerns that face their customers and their business.

The Acronis Cyber Cloud platform delivers cyber protection services with an unprecedented level of ease, offering service providers access to backup, disaster recovery, file sync and share, and blockchain-based notarization and e-signature services that address all Five Vectors of Cyber Protection — ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data (SAPAS) through a single management console.

Phil Goodwin of IDC explains, “There is a great opportunity for services providers to build a business by meeting the demands of the growing cyber protection market. The latest edition of the Acronis Cyber Cloud platform provides a set of products that providers can use to market their own comprehensive backup, disaster recovery, and ransomware protection solutions.”

Connecting Acronis and ConnectWise

Through the Acronis Cyber Cloud integrations with ConnectWise, service providers gain efficiency and accessibility through native support capabilities in both ConnectWise and Acronis products:

  • With the Acronis Cyber Cloud extension for ConnectWise Control users are able to remotely install and update backup agents on individual machines or groups of machines, apply backup plans and Active Protection plans to customer machines, and monitor a device’s status through the ConnectWise Control console.
  • With the Acronis Cyber Cloud extension for ConnectWise Automate users are able to protect devices from ransomware with Acronis Active Protection, support agentless VM backup, monitor activity through Acronis’ audit log, monitor alerts for all data sources, develop pre-defined backup reports, and provision all cloud services and editions of Acronis Cyber Cloud 8.0 through the ConnectWise Automate console.
  • With the Acronis Cyber Cloud extension for ConnectWise Manage users are able to provision services to new and existing customers, automate billing, monitor and automatically create tickets for failed backup/recovery operation and quota-related issues, monitor backup statuses, and seamlessly fit the service into existing help desk operations through the ConnectWise Manage console.

These integrations join more than 10 others already connected with Acronis Cyber Cloud, including Autotask, cPanel, Plesk, and more, and represent a further expansion of the key benefits service providers will find with the Acronis platform.

Acronis will preview these integrations with ConnectWise – and the many other features of Acronis Cyber Cloud – at Booth #300 throughout ConnectWise’s IT Nation Explore partner conference.

Upcoming Acronis Global Cyber Summit
Anyone interested in exploring the future of cyber protection further should consider attending the Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019, taking place from October 13 to 16 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort in Miami, FL. – https://acronis.events/summit2019/

The two-and-a-half-day conference is the premier event for improving the protection of critical data assets and systems. Designed for IT infrastructure managers, CIOs, managed-IT service providers, resellers, ISVs, and developers, the Summit will focus on understanding and capitalizing on the emerging trends, innovations, and insights found where data protection and cybersecurity converge.

New integration empowers MSPs with a straightforward platform for delivering complete device encryption purpose-built to meet their clients’ security compliance requirements

SAN JOSE, CA – June 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Beachhead Solutions, provider of cloud-managed PC & mobile device encryption, security, and data access control for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), today announced that it has integrated its SimplySecure for MSPs solution with Datto Autotask PSA. By doing so, MSPs utilizing Autotask PSA can quickly leverage SimplySecure’s MSP-managed encryption and remote data access controls alongside Datto Autotask PSA’s security-critical status alerts and streamlined license usage and billing.

SimplySecure for MSPs is the first encryption and access control technology integrated with Datto Autotask PSA, allowing MSPs to easily enforce and manage device security for clients’ PCs, Macs, USB storage devices, mobile phones, tablets and servers. The solution is tailormade for security-focused MSPs and MSSPs seeking to deliver Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) and to distinguish their practices by proactively addressing the ever-growing threats of data breaches and loss. The cloud-based platform also enables MSP technicians to handle all troubleshooting and remediation remotely, reducing in-person service calls and downtime while optimizing productivity. SimplySecure is multi-tenanted and billed monthly based solely on license consumption.

The integration announced today with Datto Autotask PSA equips MSPs with security-critical SimplySecure status alerts. These alerts include evidence and ticketing of automated SimplySecure security responses, enabling the MSP to view license allocation by account and streamline billing to the client. For example, automated SimplySecure responses may include wiping encryption keys to thwart unauthorized data access, remotely wiping data from a device to eliminate data breach risk, ensuring access expires based on pre-set time-based server check-ins, or denying access after an excessive number of invalid login attempts. These alerts also enable MSPs to expedite responses, where help desk or security remediation is required.

“Integrating Datto Autotask PSA with SimplySecure for MSPs is a natural fit, and doing so allows us to offer MSPs security alerts and full visibility into our solution’s automated activities,” said Cam Roberson, Director of the Reseller Channel, Beachhead Solutions. “By monitoring security alerts from within Datto Autotask PSA, MSPs are able to very easily view license allocation by account, bring more efficiency to client billing, and ultimately keep their clients’ data more secure. We’re proud of this integration and our new partnership with Datto, and excited to introduce these new capabilities to more MSPs worldwide.”

Datto Autotask PSA is a complete IT business management platform that delivers all of the mission-critical tools needed to run an IT managed services business. It’s a reliable cloud-based platform that centralizes business operations, integrates with industry-leading remote monitoring and management systems, and enables quick, data-driven decisions.

“Datto Autotask PSA is designed to integrate seamlessly with solutions that MSPs consider critical to achieving results for their clients – and Beachhead Solutions’ SimplySecure for MSPs is a welcome addition to the platform,” said Rob Rae, VP, Business Development, Datto. “We look forward to growing our partnership with Beachhead on future integrations where incorporating our solutions will reach MSPs looking to provide unmatched device security and peace-of-mind to their clients.”

Beachhead Solutions and Datto next plan to integrate SimplySecure for MSPs with Datto RMM, the cloud-based remote monitoring and management platform that enables MSPs to scale and improve service delivery operations.

About Beachhead Solutions
Beachhead Solutions delivers cloud-based data security and encryption – built for seamless MSP portfolio integration – through its robust SimplySecure for MSPs TM platform.

– Fujitsu and Hitachi Solutions Named Gold Sponsors –
– TechTarget Named Media Sponsor –
– Customer-Centered Conference June 18-19 in Boston –

Waltham, Mass. – June 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Actifio, the pioneer of copy data management software, today announced that Dell EMC, Google Cloud and IBM will be Diamond Sponsors for Data Driven 2019, the company’s annual conference for technologists and business leaders from around the globe who are driving data-intensive transformations in their organizations. In addition, Fujitsu and Hitachi Solutions are Gold Sponsors and TechTarget is the Official Media Sponsor of Data Driven 2019. Datatrend, Onix, and Wasabi have been named Bronze Sponsors.

Actifio’s annual global conference, Data Driven 2019 will take place June 18-19 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston. The event will bring together industry thought leaders and solution experts to discuss how to innovate and transform business around data — on-premises, in the cloud, always-on, data-as-a-service.

Hundreds of attendees from throughout Europe, Asia, Japan, Australia, and the U.S. will attend tech sessions, keynote presentations and executive roundtables led by Actifio customers and other industry leaders. Topics will revolve around the pursuit of digital transformation, the power of the cloud in data-fueled technology environments, and the successes and challenges of organizations that rely increasingly on data to build their futures. The roster of keynote presenters will be finalized soon.

Ash Ashutosh, co-founder and CEO of Actifio, said, “Our first Data Driven conference last year reinforced how different Actifio is from many of the IT providers who host these events. Users want to hear from other users, CIOs from other CIOs. Many customers get frustrated with the
usual parade of executive presentations from the host vendor. We run Data Driven with the premise that our customers would rather hear from their peers. Of course we’ll update them on our own innovation, and several of our partners will provide their perspectives, but most of the
program is driven by our customers. We are grateful that so many of our partners are participating as sponsors and further enriching the Data Driven experience.”

Sessions Explain How Cohesity Software on Certified HPE Servers Empowers Enterprises to Simplify Data Management and Make Data More Productive

SAN JOSE, CA – June 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity today announced that it will lead two speaking sessions at HPE Discover 2019, taking place from June 18 to 20 in Las Vegas, discussing how customers can utilize certified joint solutions from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Cohesity to address one of the biggest challenges facing IT today: mass data fragmentation.

With mass data fragmentation, massive volumes of data used for backup, archiving, testing and development, file shares, and object stores sit in infrastructure silos that don’t integrate and can be incredibly challenging and time-consuming to protect and manage. This fragmentation can also increase costs and pose significant compliance risks. Cohesity empowers organizations to consolidate these silos, simplify backup and make data more productive through a unified data management platform that spans seamlessly across on-premises, cloud, and edge environments.

The sessions will feature Cohesity Principal Technologists Chris Colotti and Michael Letschin, who are both part of the company’s Technology Advocacy Group, and Cohesity Principal Solutions Architect Tim Powers. These sessions build on an OEM partnership announced between Cohesity and HPE last year. Through this partnership, HPE offers best-of-breed solutions that combine the web-scale simplicity and efficiency of Cohesity software with the power and density of industry-leading HPE Apollo and HPE ProLiant servers, unlocking new opportunities to make enterprise data more productive. The joint solutions are available directly from HPE and its channel partners worldwide, streamlining customers’ purchasing, deployment, and support experience through a single trusted partner.

Cohesity is also sponsoring the HPE Discover Storage Customer VIP Reception on June 18, offering conference attendees a chance to network with cocktails and music at Intrigue nightclub in the Wynn Las Vegas Resort. Space is limited and those interested in joining must RSVP for the event on the Cohesity website.

Key Activities at HPE Discover:

“Changing Backup and Recovery from Nightmares to Sweet Dreams with HPE and Cohesity”

Zoned Storage Architecture Leverages Standardization of ZNS and SMR Enabling More Efficient, Zettabyte-scale Architectures for Data Center Customers

Highlights:

  • The Zoned Storage initiative brings together tools and resources, leveraging advantages of zone block management, for architecting a robust, efficient and purpose-built storage tier to achieve competitive TCO now and into the future.
  • A new developer site, hosted by Western Digital on ZonedStorage.io, includes open-source, standards-based tools and resources for ZNS and SMR.
  • SMR areal density growth rate tracks closely with global data demand growth. Western Digital demonstrates 20TB with expected shipment in 2020. Western Digital estimates that 50 percent of its HDD exabytes shipped will be on SMR by 2023.

San Jose, Calif. - Jun 11, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — With a focus on enabling purpose-built, open and scalable data center architectures, Western Digital today launched Zoned Storage, an initiative that brings together new innovations and industry standards for cloud and hyperscale data center architects to design efficient storage tiers that help maintain competitive TCO and achieve greater economies of scale as we approach the zettabyte-scale era.

By 2023 and beyond, enterprises, machines, industries, consumers, science and more will be generating 103 zettabytes per year, according to IDC*. For this next-generation of data, new data center constructs, such as composable disaggregated infrastructure, are needed as today’s general-purpose architectures are inefficient and can carry resource and cost overhead when faced with an increasing span of workloads, applications and datasets. As more and more of this data will be sequential in nature – video, IoT/edge data, surveillance, or data that can be grouped or “zoned” into larger chunks such as large AI/ML datasets – there are opportunities to organize workloads for better performance and efficiencies with lower TCO by accelerating the adoption of zoned storage devices.

The Zoned Storage architecture enables applications, host and storage to orchestrate data placement and take full advantage of the highest available storage capacities typically with shingled magnetic recording (SMR) HDDs and the emerging zoned namespaces (ZNS) standard for NVMe SSDs to deliver better endurance and predictable, low-latency QoS performance. A planned extension of the NVMe standard, ZNS complements SMR technology, enabling developers to take advantage of both SMR and ZNS under a single storage stack, regardless of media type. With 50 percent of Western Digital’s HDD exabyte shipments expected to be on SMR by 2023, customers will be able to leverage their SMR application development to encompass high-capacity ZNS SSDs. Delivering intelligence to application architectures, SMR and ZNS will be key foundational building blocks of the new zettabyte-scale era now and into the future.

“There’s no doubt that the industry needs to come together and find new and creative ways to design and architect infrastructures for the future to more intelligently and efficiently optimize workloads, and storage and compute infrastructure,” said Ashish Nadkarni, group vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies at IDC. “With total HDD and SSD revenue expected to reach 27 percent of total IT infrastructure spend by 2022, we see SMR, SSDs and ZNS together as a standout opportunity for cloud and hyperscale data center customers to optimize infrastructure for better cost economies at scale. Unifying the ZNS and SMR architectures via open, standards-based initiatives is a logical industry step, which can take advantage of SMR HDD areal density gains and new innovations in Flash. Whoever enters the market first, will definitely have a competitive advantage on TCO and the learning curve.”

Areal Density Leadership with SMR, Plus ZNS NVMe SSDs, Lay Foundation for Zoned Storage Initiative
Increasingly, cloud service providers are investing in host software that can manage high-capacity SMR HDDs to deliver better TCO to customers at scale. SMR and ZNS are fundamentally reshaping cloud and enterprise data centers, delivering long-term TCO into the future. With a growing ecosystem and continued SMR adoption, Western Digital is focused on delivering the highest capacities, together with its evolving energy assist recording technologies. Today, the company’s 15TB Ultrastar® DC HC620 SMR HDDs are shipping in volume, with a technology demonstration of its 20TB SMR HDD at a press event and private customer gathering being held in Beijing this week.

Western Digital is also announcing its ZNS development SSD for early Zoned Storage efforts. ZNS NVMe SSDs offer several benefits over traditional NVMe SSDs. Conforming to the ZNS feature set, as defined and governed by NVM Express, Inc., these ZNS SSDs are designed to lower write amplification, increase capacity, and provide improved throughput and latency. ZNS SSDs achieve these improvements by aligning “zones” to the internal physical properties of the SSDs, eliminating inefficiencies in the placement of data.

New ZonedStorage.io Community Site with Open-Source Tools and Libraries
As a natural extension to Western Digital’s ongoing contributions within the NVMe Consortium, and its long history of making its SMR-based tools available to the open-source community, the company has launched ZonedStorage.io. Working with the open-source community, customers and industry players, ZonedStorage.io is aimed to jump-start application development initiatives within the developer community as well as help data center infrastructure engineers take advantage of Zoned Storage technologies. The site hosts information about software development libraries, tools, ZNS information, SMR resources and reference architectures that provide a unified framework to manage purpose-built ZNS SSDs and capacity-optimized SMR HDDs. Through this initiative, developers can gain confidence in the burgeoning ecosystem of community and industry contributors and supporters, including ATTO Technology, Broadcom, Mellanox and SUSE.

In addition to championing the ZonedStorage.io site, Western Digital’s suite of products consists of the Ultrastar ZNS NVMe development SSD and the Ultrastar DC HC620 15TB SMR HDD. The 15TB Ultrastar DC HC620 is currently available and shipping in volume to qualified customers. The Ultrastar ZNS NVMe development SSD is available to select customers. Please visit WesternDigital.com for Ultrastar product information or ZonedStorage.io for open-source information.

Woburn, MA – June 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky research has found that cybercriminals are taking advantage of growing demand for video games by distributing malware through fake copies of the most popular ones. More than 930,000 users were hit by such attacks in the 12 months from early June 2018 to early June 2019. Over a third of the attacks centered on just three games.

Video gaming has been around for a while, but the power of the internet has accelerated its growth and evolution. Today around one in ten of the world’s population plays online games. Like other types of digital entertainment, video games are vulnerable to abuse such as copyright infringement and illegal torrent-trackers, but they face another growing threat: the fraudulent use of their brand to disguise the distribution of malware. Many of the top video games are hosted on digital distribution platforms. These cannot always detect whether the software files uploaded are legitimate gaming files or disguised malware samples.

Kaspersky researchers decided to take a closer look at the infected files detected during 2018 and the first part of 2019. Leading the list of abused games was ‘Minecraft’. Malware disguised as this game accounted for around 30% of attacks, with over 310,000 users hit. In second place was ‘Grand Theft Auto 5’, targeting more than 112,000 users. ‘Sims 4’ took fourth place with almost 105,000 users hit.

According to the researchers, criminals were also found trying to lure users into downloading malicious files pretending to be unreleased games. Spoofs of at least 10 pre-release games were seen, with 80% of detections focused on FIFA 20, Borderlands 3, and the Elder Scrolls 6.

“For months now we see that criminals are exploiting entertainment to catch users by surprise – be it series of popular TV shows, premieres of top movies or popular video games,” said Maria Fedorova, security researcher at Kaspersky. “This is easy to explain: people can be less vigilant when they just want to relax and have fun. If they’re not expecting to find malware in something fun they’ve used for years, it won’t take an advanced-threat like infection vector to succeed. We urge everyone to stay alert, avoid untrusted digital platforms and suspicious looking offers, install security software and perform a regular security scan of all devices used for gaming.”

To avoid falling victim to malicious programs pretending to be video games, Kaspersky recommends taking the following steps:

  • Use only legitimate services with a proven reputation.
  • Pay extra attention to the websites’ authenticity. Do not visit websites allowing downloading video games until you are sure that they are legitimate and start with ‘https’. Confirm that the website is genuine by double-checking the format of the URL or the spelling of the company name, before starting downloads.
  • Don’t click on suspicious links, such as those promising a chance to play a pre-release game.
  • Use reliable security solution for comprehensive protection from a wide range of threats, such as Kaspersky Security Cloud.
