Ten years plus four million RDX units equals 1.5 Exabytes of lightning-fast backups and restores

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Mar. 23, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Tandberg Data, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sphere 3D Corp (NASDAQ:ANY), today announced a milestone that has been a decade in the making. More than 4 million RDX products have been sold by the company and its OEM partners – representing a cumulative capacity in excess of 1.5 Exabytes of storage. For comparison, 1 Exabyte of storage is estimated to equal 100,000 times the printed material, or up to 3,000 times all forms of content contained in the US Library of Congress.[1]

Tandberg’s patented RDX® technology, a disk-based removable storage format for backup, archive and disaster recovery, is an example of unprecedented innovation and strong brand equity among technical products. At the end of 2006, Tandberg Data created a new era in backup and restore capabilities when it introduced the first RDX QuikStor™ drives with RDX cartridges. In the decade since, RDX products have been recognized by customers and press for technical leadership, security and reliability in long-term storage, archive and backup.

“RDX technology has been a very important part of our overall backup and recovery portfolio for Hewlett Packard Enterprise because it is so reliable and easy for our customers to use,” said Doug Cirruzzo, Category Manager from HPE. “Unlike other comparable technologies that have now disappeared from the market, the RDX solution has continued to offer a high level of effectiveness and usability while maintaining the technological leadership required by dynamic IT environments. We congratulate Tandberg Data on its 10th anniversary and look forward to continuing our partnership for decades to come.”

Today’s RDX removable disk-based technology provides lightning-fast backup and restore with a durable and ruggedized form factor. The RDX product family delivers cost-efficient, long-term storage and archive solutions to small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) with growing data storage needs. It combines the portability and reliability of tape-based backup with the speed and simplicity of a hard disk drive. Ruggedized RDX cartridges are shockproof, can sustain a one-meter drop onto a concrete floor, are protected against electro static discharge events and support an archival lifetime of more than ten years.

“We are excited to celebrate this successful milestone of RDX technology, crafted from our combined history of innovation and performance reliability,” said Randy Gast, President of Storage and COO for Sphere 3D. “The past 10 years could not have been possible without the dedication and consistency of our employees, partners and customers. We look forward to continue working together to pursue the growing demand that we see in areas like professional workflow, archive solutions, and hybrid clouds, as well as from vertical markets like media and entertainment.”

“The Tandberg team is delighted to celebrate this remarkable 10 year milestone of RDX technology in the long-term storage, archive and backup market. With more than 4 million devices deployed worldwide, RDX has shown leadership in the area of removable and transportable business-grade media,” said Hugo Bergmann, product line manager RDX storage and software solutions at Tandberg Data. It’s an honor that RDX has been utilized and trusted by hundreds of thousands of businesses using it for daily storage and archiving of critical business data.”

Overconfidence in technology is leaving companies exposed to phishing and other attacks that prey on humans, as evidenced by red team tests where 52% of employees clicked on a link in a fake email

HELSINKI, FINLAND – March 22, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Attackers consistently prey on companies that have what cyber security experts call a “false sense of security” when it comes to relying too much on technology to defend their networks. The warning comes from a spokesperson for F-Secure’s red team – a group of cyber security experts specializing in ethically attacking organizations to highlight strengths and weaknesses in their security.

“Using technology to solve human problems just doesn’t work, and anyone telling you different is selling magic beans,” said Tom Van de Wiele, Principle Security Consultant at F-Secure. “Real-life attackers, especially criminals, live off perfecting subtle social engineering tricks that trick human beings into letting their guard down. And letting employees believe that cutting edge security technologies will handle everything gives a false sense of security, which is something today’s attackers are counting on.”

Gone phishing
Phishing exemplifies what Van de Wiele says are failings related to overconfidence in technology. According to PwC’s Global State of Information Security Survey 2017,* phishing was the #1 vector for cyber attacks targeting financial institutions in 2016. And based on the spread of managed phishing-as-a-service bundles on the dark net,** these attacks are likely to become more prevalent going forward.

“You’d be amazed by what people click on while they’re working. They’re not stupid, just caught off-guard, not necessarily expecting to be duped,” said Van de Wiele. And indeed, simulated phishing attacks have high success rates in F-Secure’s Red Teaming Tests.

For example, in a recent job, F-Secure red team experts sent out a fake LinkedIn email to see how many of the client organization’s employees would click on a link in an unsolicited email. 52% of employees clicked. In another test, F-Secure’s red team created an email leading to a fake portal where employees would need to log in using their domain credentials. 26% of recipients followed the email link to the portal, and 13% actually entered their login credentials.

Nothing is off limits
The Red Teaming Tests Van de Wiele and his colleagues conduct involve a comprehensive series of tests designed to highlight what companies are doing right and wrong when it comes to security. The tests challenge companies to successfully detect, contain, and respond to simulated cyber attacks intended to steal financial data and intellectual property, or control key parts of a company’s IT infrastructure.

According to Van de Wiele, these tests often surprise companies by revealing just how exposed they are. “Internal views of security rarely match the weaknesses attackers actually see,” he said. The tests encompass a company’s entire attack surface, not just digital but physical too – or anything under the company brand.

“Many companies are surprised when we gain access to offline servers, as many CISO’s are unprepared to deal with an attacker who gains physical access to their company’s premises. And that’s surprisingly easy to do: all you need is a safety vest and physical work order. Safety vests are better than Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. Put it on and you can get anywhere, no questions asked.”

With Red Teaming Tests, organizations can:

  • Ensure that security controls are working and are aligned with their intended function
  • Measure the return of cyber security investments
  • Obtain an overview of how efficiently core assets or intellectual property are protected
  • Clarify if security processes need to be updated or if more security awareness training is required
  • Raise IT security awareness within relevant departments
  • Ensure that security monitoring works as intended
  • Test their ability to contain an attack

HIAG Data has deployed a two petabyte Cloudian HyperStore cluster across two data centers as its hybrid cloud solution

SAN MATEO, CA., AND ZURICH, SWITZERLAND – March 22, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian, Inc., a leading provider of hybrid cloud object storage, has announced that HIAG Data, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) provider in Switzerland, has deployed a two petabyte Cloudian HyperStore cluster in two data centers as its hybrid cloud storage solution.

By moving to Cloudian, HIAG Data’s customers now benefit from a Switzerland-based service that is optimized for enterprise requirements and is fully compatible with Amazon S3 cloud storage. This allows customers to utilize both HIAG Data storage and Amazon S3 storage in a single management environment.

In Switzerland, compliance regulations require that certain types of data be kept within the country. With this service, those data types may be kept on-premises in HIAG Data’s two Swiss data centers, while other types may be stored on Amazon S3. A carrier-independent L2 private optical fibre network enables secure communication between the customer site and the data center. The company also offers access to global peering with a direct connection to peering points in Frankfurt and Milan.

Before moving to Cloudian, HIAG Data had used SAN-based storage solutions from Ceph, but found it both costly and complex to add capacity.

Hanspeter Tinner, Chief Operations Officer at HIAG Data commented: “We chose Cloudian HyperStore based on its full Amazon S3 interoperability and ability to scale simply and without interruption, simply by adding nodes. Our customers now have options to store their data where they need it, while they capitalize on our private network to ensure secure communications.”

“HIAG Data has a very strong offering in Switzerland, based on the secure infrastructure that underpins their data centers,” says Jacco van Achterberg, Sales Director EMEA at Cloudian. “Selecting Cloudian HyperStore for their Tier 3 storage completes their model with highly-resilient, on-premises storage that scales quickly on demand.”

Based in Silicon Valley, Cloudian is a leading provider of hybrid cloud object storage systems. Our flagship product, Cloudian HyperStore, enables service providers and enterprises to build reliable, affordable and scalable hybrid cloud storage solutions.

“Today’s public sector organizations require the highest levels of security and data privacy. In addition to the best technologies, the need to operate in a secure cloud environment and adhere to standards such as FIPS 140 is a unique and demanding need,” said Dave Packer, Vice President of Corporate and Product Marketing at Druva. “Whether part of the federal, state or local government, organizations now require data solutions that are compliant with the latest regulations and deliver the most cutting edge technologies. With the Druva and Carahsoft partnership, the public sector can now easily and assuredly protect their users’ valuable data while adhering to all regulations and compliance requirements.”

Embracing modern data protection poses a unique set of challenges for federal, state and local government agencies and contractors, especially when it comes to security requirements and cloud deployments. Druva inSync enables government organizations to overcome these barriers, delivering a U.S. government-compliant cloud environment that adheres to FIPS and ITAR regulations. Moreover, Druva inSync is built on AWS GovCloud which is a FISMA and FedRAMP compliant infrastructure that keeps data protected around the clock.

Druva provides an integrated Cloud Information Management solution that unifies data protection and governance to provide increased data visibility and manageability across laptops, PCs, smart devices and cloud applications (e.g., Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite and Box). Its flagship product Druva inSync allows agencies to have a single data control panel for backup/recovery, compliance monitoring, federated search, anomaly detection and eDiscovery processes across these endpoints and cloud applications. Organizations are able to alleviate data risks and simplify business processes without impacting employee productivity.

“With the addition of Druva inSync to our data protection offerings, we are able to deliver a complete solution in user data backup and management, and provide our government customers and reseller partners with a capability that increases the visibility and availability of cloud data, while reducing risk, complexity and cost,” said Brian O’Donnell, Vice President at Carahsoft. “We are especially excited about the security of their cloud application, which is FIPS 140 validated with AWS GovCloud availability, as well as Druva’s ability to provide a restore solution for endpoints and cloud applications that can be done at any time, even during an attack.”

The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program allows dinCloud to provide direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage, and support Microsoft cloud offerings

LOS ANGELES, CA – March 15, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — dinCloud, a cloud services provider for hosted workspaces and cloud infrastructure, today announced it now sells through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program.

Starting today, dinCloud can support the complete customer lifecycle. dinCloud can now easily sell Microsoft cloud solutions and help customers drive new business value through the cloud by owning the entire billing process and directly managing support.

“Customer demand for cloud services is growing and we see tremendous interest in Microsoft cloud technologies, such as Microsoft Office 365,” said David Graffia, vice president of sales at dinCloud. “Joining the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program further validates dinCloud’s commitment to customer satisfaction around the latest Microsoft cloud technologies, allowing us to drive innovative solutions and build stronger relationships with our customers. We are excited to be working with Microsoft, and look forward to developing a world-class cloud solution provider offering.”

HANNOVER, Germany – March 21, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Huawei today announced its new Storage as a Service (STaaS) solution at CeBIT 2017. The solution delivers a consistent on- and off-premise cloud experience in storage services and intelligent data and O&M management to help enterprises move seamlessly to the cloud, while protecting increasing volumes of data.

Today’s digital era is creating huge surges of enterprise data fueled by technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, analytics, mobility and social media. Enterprises are challenged to find effective storage and management solutions to keep pace with this explosive data growth while eliminating complexity and costs and preparing for cloud adoption.

The STaaS solution manages SAN, NAS, object, and other storage equipment in a single pane, to support a “Data on Demand” approach. The consolidation of storage assets into resource pools, on-demand allocations, and improved resource utilization help enterprises reduce TCO by 20%. In addition, self-help service catalogs, a high-level of automation in resource allocation, intelligent prediction capabilities, and decision-making support are integrated to improve data management efficiency by as much as 50%. The solution introduces a unified architecture that enables users to choose from rich service catalogs and SLAs, while delivering a consistent on- and off-premise experience and enabling a smooth migration to the cloud. Enterprises can also avoid vendor lock-in by embracing an open architecture which includes a high-level of collaboration within a robust ecosystem.

In Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays, Huawei was named as a leader, with nearly 7,000 customers worldwide choosing Huawei’s innovative offerings to address their complex storage needs. Meng Guangbin, President, IT Storage Product Line, Huawei, said, “As cloud enablement continues to accelerate, there is no doubt that IT services will become a more prominent part of data center operations. Our STaaS solution consolidates on- and off-premise resources and delivers standardized, automated, and on-demand data storage services to increase agility in enterprise cloud transformations.”

All-flash arrays are becoming the preferred choice for many enterprises to build their cloud platforms and core service systems and at the launch, Huawei demonstrated its all-flash OceanStor Dorado V3, purpose built to handle data-intensive enterprise applications. The array lineup keeps response times down to 500?s with the highest levels of performance and 99.999% reliability to address enterprise storage needs of the digital era.

Huawei STaaS solution will be officially launched from today onwards. Huawei OceanStor Dorado V3 is being globally launched.

InfiniBox Helps Bluelock Provide Higher Quality Cloud Services to its Customers

WALTHAM, MA – Mar 21, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — INFINIDAT, a leading provider of enterprise data storage solutions that enable the delivery of high quality cloud services, today announced that Bluelock, a provider of disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) for complex IT environments and sensitive data, has selected the InfiniBox™ enterprise-proven storage system as its primary storage platform.

As the scale and complexity of disaster recovery projects have increased, the right storage solution has become essential for delivering DRaaS services that clients trust. With InfiniBox, Bluelock was able to gain a greater competitive advantage through a combination of performance, resiliency, security and cost, while also benefiting their clients through greater peace of mind.

“There is now a standard in the industry that storage should be encrypted at rest, therefore we have a baseline requirement for all our clients’ data of encryption at rest, which InfiniBox provides very reliably right out of the box,” explained Ken Newell, senior systems engineer at Bluelock. “In terms of costs, we can deliver the InfiniBox solution for far less than our previous arrays while getting better predictability, flexibility and performance. Because we serve clients from many different verticals on the system, the workloads vary, and we can handle those predictably and confidently. Additionally, our engineers are thrilled to be rid of the expensive operational costs that used to exist for onboarding new clients and managing complex storage acquisition processes.”

Bluelock initially tested InfiniBox to replace its backup storage for a new product offering. As Bluelock tested and saw the InfiniBox’s high performance, resiliency and low latency, they made the decision to replace the current primary storage platform with InfiniBox to serve its clients. Bluelock was able to consolidate up to three pre-existing storage arrays onto each InfiniBox (F6230) saving them significant CapEx and OpEx.

“We conducted a test in which we did everything we could to stress the system and see where performance might dip, and InfiniBox performance was way above what we expected,” said Newell. “With InfiniBox, the latency remained low and never rose to the levels we see with other systems. InfiniBox delivered performance and resiliency that were exponentially greater than the existing systems running in our full production environment.”

Since fully implementing InfiniBox, Bluelock has reduced overall latency by 50%. In addition, Bluelock found that InfiniBox scales simply, easily and predictably to handle growing client workloads and SLAs and has a very flexible CoD (Capacity on Demand) licensing model.

“As a cloud provider, my clients’ workloads are always changing and have a tendency to exhaust the controllers on other storage arrays,” explained Newell. “InfiniBox is deployed with a full petabyte of capacity, and as my client storage expands to fill that, I still have all the performance I need to service all the workloads.”

Bluelock has installed the InfiniBox storage system in its two locations in Indianapolis and Las Vegas. In seven months, the company migrated all its production storage to InfiniBox and is delivering its storage in a multi-tenant fashion.

“With InfiniBox installed, we can focus more on the rest of the environment and not worry so much about the storage,” said Newell. “We know that if a client has an issue, such as slow application performance, it’s not due to the performance of our storage system. The icing on the cake with the InfiniBox is that it performs so well. The fact that it came in as backup contender and won the front of the house is significant. It says a lot about the system.”

Scalable from 115 TB to multiple PB of effective storage capacity in a single 42U rack, InfiniBox offers 99.99999% availability and delivers ultra-high performance of up to one million IOPS at sub-millisecond latency. Reliability features include end-to-end data protection; triple redundant power and data paths; snapshots and replication; and hot swap upgrades. InfiniBox storage arrays are also extremely power-efficient, drawing a maximum of between 3-8KW at a peak load. As a result of all its storage performance and efficiency capabilities, InfiniBox provides customers with an extremely low total cost of ownership.

Evolve IP Survey of 180+ Healthcare Professionals Reveals Cloud Growth, Compliance Needs and Deployment Trends

WAYNE, PA – March 21, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ – Healthcare IT professionals and executives believe overwhelmingly that when facing hardware malfunctions and environmental disasters, their organization’s data is safer in the cloud than on premises according to a technology survey released today by Evolve IP. The survey also revealed a preference for private over public clouds with about 60 percent preferring private cloud infrastructure over public clouds for data security. The survey of more than 180 healthcare professionals, which provides current cloud adoption trends and future cloud deployment insights, also revealed that 85 percent of all healthcare organizations now have at least one service in the cloud.

Data security is an ongoing concern for IT and this year’s survey asked respondents where they felt their data was safest under three common risk scenarios: environmental disasters, malicious attacks (e.g. cyberattacks) and hardware failure.

  • For environmental disasters – 61 percent felt their information was safest in a private cloud compared to 27.5 percent in a public cloud and 11.5 percent on premise.
  • For malicious attacks, 58.5 percent preferred a private cloud to safeguard their data versus 32 percent on premise and 9.5 percent public cloud.
  • For hardware malfunctions 58.5 percent preferred private clouds compared to 24 percent public cloud and 17.5 percent on premises.

Other key results of the survey showed that, on average, healthcare organizations have between 2 and three services (2.75 average) in the cloud. Data backup, servers/data centers, other SaaS and Microsoft Exchange and Office were cited as the top deployed cloud services. Additionally, the survey indicated that adoption will continue to be strong, with 81 percent of respondents planning on adding new or additional cloud services in the next three years.

The survey results also found that 38.75 percent of organizations had deployed a cloud solution on their own versus using a third party provider. This is markedly lower than the average of all industries of 54.75 percent. When asked if they had to start the deployment over, nearly a third (32.5 percent) said they would outsource to a solution provider the next time.

“As evidenced by their currently deployed services and planned adoption trends, healthcare organizations have recognized the significant benefits of the cloud,” said Dave McCrystal, Healthcare Vertical Marketing Manager of Evolve IP. “With a dedicated healthcare focus, geographically redundant Tier IV data centers and The Evolve IP Compliance CloudTM, Evolve IP is incredibly well positioned to help these organizations successfully deploy HIPAA and PCI-compliant cloud computing and cloud communications services.”

Additional Findings:

  • 42 percent of survey respondents noted that network access was a pain point for their organization yet just 22 percent had evaluated SD-WAN technology as a solution.
  • The overwhelming majority of respondents indicated HIPAA compliance requirements (85 percent). In addition, 32 percent also faced PCI compliance requirements.
  • The top services survey respondents expect to deploy in the cloud over the next three years include data backup (48 percent), Exchange / Office (27.5 percent) and phone systems (27 percent).

Survey Methodology
The blind, web-based survey was conducted by Evolve IP during January of 2017, featuring over 1,300 respondents in multiple industries across North America. Over 170 of the respondents indicated they were in the healthcare industry. Of the healthcare respondents, 76 percent came from organizations with between 50 and 5,000 employees, 15 percent from companies with more than 5,000, 6 percent were businesses with 11-49 associates and 3 percent were small businesses with 10 employees or less. Evolve IP customers were excluded from the survey.

ABOUT EVOLVE IP
Evolve IP is The Cloud Services Company™. Designed from the beginning to provide organizations with a unified option for cloud services, Evolve IP enables decision-makers to migrate all or select IT technologies to its award-winning cloud platform. Evolve IP’s combination of security, stability, scalability, and lower total cost of ownership is fundamentally superior to outdated legacy systems and other cloud offerings.

IT Service Management Technology Leader Highlights Importance of Business Continuity, Security and Recovery Time with a Countdown to #WorldBackupDay

DURHAM, NC – March 21, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — SolarWinds MSP, a global leader in delivering comprehensive, scalable IT service management solutions to IT solution providers and MSPs, is counting down to World Backup Day with a series of real-world reminders and practical advice columns for IT service professionals worldwide.

Celebrated annually, World Backup Day is March 31. The independent initiative seeks to raise awareness about the importance of backups and data preservation, with the goal of sparking a unified call to action for businesses and consumers worldwide to back up their data.

For MSPs, an essential first step in building a successful data recovery plan for customers is helping them recognize the need for data protection. You can’t recover what you didn’t back up: this is the undeniable truth about disaster recovery and business continuity. Every business, no matter the size, needs a documented backup and recovery plan supported by a managed data protection solution-as-a-service that’s ready for the unintentional, inevitable, and unexpected. Best practices for delivering and consuming secure data protection include:

Saving time and increasing profit by:

  • Reducing travel time to customer sites with a fully-featured remote backup solution.
  • Deploying and setting up customer environments more quickly.
  • Recovering data from the fastest location: local storage or cloud locations.

Selling more backup solutions by:

  • Underscoring the importance of backing up critical data.
  • Educating SMBs on the advantages of using hybrid cloud backup: if it’s not off-site, it’s not backed up.
  • Letting customers know how simple and safe it is to add remote offices and workers to help increase backup revenue.

“Data is the driver, and without access to it, the majority of businesses would come to a screeching halt,” explained Chris Groot, vice president, product management, SolarWinds MSP. “Case in point, Google the words ‘data loss impact on businesses’ to read about the real-world business impact data loss has on a company of any given size. The impact of unrecoverable data loss is significant and in many cases, marks a fatal blow to the business, which could have been avoided with the proper technology, processes and talent in place.”

SolarWinds MSP partner Rodney Molloy of Computer Trouble Shooters offers his testimony stating, “The SolarWinds MSP Backup and Recovery Solution saved my client from complete devastation. They would have lost all of their electronic data if a reliable backup solution had not been implemented. It’s not just backing up your data that is important: it is the ability to easily and in a timely manner recover your damaged or lost data. That is what saves a business.”

SolarWinds MSP has also just launched general availability of its latest version of SolarWinds MSP Backup & Recovery (17.3). This release is designed to improve performance, responsiveness and scalability of the Backup and Recovery infrastructure. Users will now be able to take advantage of enhanced speed and reliability; two key components of an efficient and easy to manage Backup and Recovery solution.

The 5N2 has an impressive list of customer centric, industry-leading features such as:
• Two, One Gigabit Ethernet ports for unparalleled performance
• Upgraded processor for increased speed and throughput
• DroboDR, the Simplest to use Disaster Recovery (DR) solution available
• 2x Performance boost over the original 5N with port-bonding enabled
• Two Year Warranty
• DroboApps for turn-key applications and file management support

Designed From the Ground up for Connected Homes and SMBs
The 5N2 is perfect for the connected home and Small to Medium Businesses (SMBs) who want a simple, safe, and smart storage solution. The 5N2 has secure remote access and enterprise level DroboDR functionality. The 5N2 also includes access to DroboApps, which extends the functionality of Drobo NAS devices. Applications such as DroboAccess (private cloud solution) and DroboPix (mobile pictures and video management) allow users both privacy and security of their data on a Drobo they own — unlike public cloud solutions.

“The team at Drobo is working hard to deliver on the commitments we have made to customers, partners and ourselves,” said Mihir Shah, CEO of Drobo. “Our customers have been asking for our enterprise level technology in our 5 bay NAS products and the 5N2 delivers just that, at a cost effective price. We strive to be the storage company that is laser focused on our customer’s requirements.”

Superior Performance With Disaster Recovery
The 5N2 is the fastest 5 bay network attached Drobo ever. This allows for superior performance for data intensive applications that most connected homes and small businesses have. To ensure data is safe, the 5N2 also comes with the DroboDR software solution developed by Drobo. With DroboDR, users can set up a pair of 5N2s to make an offsite copy of data. DroboDR is simple to setup and manage and replicates data to another 5N2, ensuring availability in case of disaster. Furthermore, the remote 5N2 stores all user account information, resulting in a quick and painless recovery with a single click in the Drobo Dashboard. The Drobo 5N2 also comes with an internal battery that protects against data loss during a power outage.

Customer Driven Focus
The 5N2 is the 7th new product introduced after the company underwent an acquisition and management change in 2015. Drobo is committed to introducing innovative products that preserve simplicity and customer confidence. The 5N2 includes a two-year warranty to extend peace of mind for users.

The 5N2 is the easiest to use NAS on the market today with automation usually reserved for more expensive solutions. This ease of use is what customers expect from Drobo’s award-winning focus on simplicity. This is evident in Drobo’s unique features such as:

• Internal battery back-up for zero data loss during a power outage
• Expandability with any size disk
• Award winning ease of use setup and management dashboard
• mSATA cache for speedy access to frequently used data
• Ability to mix and match any size HDD’s and SSD’s

Price and Customer Loyalty Program
The Drobo 5N2 is available today at an MSRP of $499 USD through www.drobostore.com and select channel partners.

Drobo is offering Drobo FS and 5N customers a $50 USD discount when they purchase a new Drobo 5N2 through www.drobostore.com

US customers will also receive a limited edition GelaSkin if purchased on the US Drobo Store. The limited edition GelaSkin offer and $50 rebate are valid until April 4th, 2017 or while supplies last.

Mondialpol Service Group, an Italian security services provider, is using NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment and reduces VM backup administration time by 20%

CAMPBELL, CA – March 21, 2017 – /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting virtualized and cloud environments, has announced today that Mondialpol Service Group, an Italian security services provider, has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment.

Mondialpol Service Group is a group of established and prestigious companies which offer a wide range of security services in Italy. Over the years, Mondialpol Service Group has gained an extensive experience in the analysis and design of integrated security services, while also performing security management and supervision, CIT, and reception services for a number of banks, commercial, retail, and industrial groups. Mondialpol Service Group operates in nearly 20 provinces across Italy and has approximately 1,500 employees.

Data and applications that are stored in the several dozens of VMware VMs allow Mondialpol to provide its professional services and consulting to multiple industries. For Mondialpol, data protection is key in ensuring delivery of uninterrupted services and maximum protection for high value goods and business assets of their customers.

In the past, another backup solution was used to protect Mondialpol’s virtual environment, but the product was unable to meet the group’s data protection needs. Excessively long VM backup and backup administration times were common challenges that were unresolved, so it was time to move on to another backup solution that would guarantee high performance and data availability at all times.

Shift Srl, an IT Services company located in Como, Italy, has an established relationship with Mondialpol and is responsible for Mondialpol’s IT management. Shift Srl contacted Avangate Italia, a NAKIVO Gold Partner, for advice on a backup solution for Mondialpol. Avangate Italia recommended NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a possible replacement and the product’s deployment was performed by the technical departments from both Shift Srl and Avangate Italia. After an in-depth testing and analysis, NAKIVO Backup & Replication was purchased for Mondialpol’s VMware environment.

“We have been taking care of Mondialpol Service Group for several years now. Due to the company’s specific sector, Mondialpol is constantly searching for innovative and advanced solutions, in order to improve work flow, security, and reliability. We found a perfect backup solution in NAKIVO Backup & Replication, and in Avangate Italia – a supporting distributor,” says Andrea Marucci, Owner of Shift Srl.

“Deep collaboration with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, interaction with Shift Srl, and our technical department skills, allowed for a quick analysis phase and a successful implementation with an extremely collaborative customer. The result of this implementation was a noticeable global improvement of speed, security, and resource utilization, in both technical and financial areas for Mondialpol,” says Andrea Orsucci, Brand Manager at Avangate Italia.

“With the help of the professional group that took care of us, we now have a solid backup solution. In this way, we can concentrate on our customer’s security because we already solved our data protection needs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication,” says Marco Mura, CIO at Mondialpol Service Group.

For Mondialpol Service Group, NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides faster VM backup and saves time on backup administration. Switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication, improved VM backup speed by at least 15%. This improvement allowed for a more frequent VM backup planning, ensuring a better protection for Mondialpol’s customers data. Moreover, Mondialpol decreased backup administration time by 20%, due to intuitive and responsive web interface. Overall, Mondialpol Service Group improved security and reliability and gained data availability with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

VANCOUVER, BC – March 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ – Subscribe Technologies Inc. (“Subscribe” or the “Company”), (CNSX: SAAS) (OTC PINK: SRBBF) is pleased to announce the launch of FileQ.com, an electronic file sharing and file storage service offering customers an alternative to competing services such as Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive among others.

Several technology trends have reduced the cost of digital storage, enabling customers to reliably, securely and cost-effectively send, receive, share and backup files over the internet without the need to purchase supporting hardware, software or ongoing maintenance.

According to American market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), from 2005 to 2020, the volume of digital information will grow by a factor of 300, increasing demand for cost-efficient and scalable storage and content management solutions. This explosion of content and data continues to grow significantly as users and organizations increase their usage of data-rich applications and access content from multiple devices with Internet connectivity. As a result, technology research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc. expects total cloud spending to increase from $132 billion worldwide in 2013 to $244 billion in 2017.

FileQ.com enables users to access content securely in real time using nearly any mobile device and operating system, including iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry while offering an elegant, intuitive and simple interface; further facilitating quick and viral user adoption. Our cloud-based Software-as-a-Service permits individuals and organizations to integrate with other cloud-based applications, including our own bContact.com CRM and business management solution.

While there are several other cloud-based electronic data storage companies, FileQ has some unique properties in that it’s easier to use and less expensive. Premium accounts range in price from $9.95 to $59.95 per year and free accounts with limited storage space are available for personal and commercial use.

President and CEO Paul Dickson states, “In our research, we identified electronic file storage to be a potentially profitable business and one that our existing client base would be utilizing if not by us, by someone else. FileQ fits in line with our vision to provide a suite of cloud-based business software to small and mid-sized companies.”

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 21, 2017 – /BackupReview.info/ — Tintri, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise cloud platforms, today announced strong enterprise cloud momentum driven by an array of new solutions introduced in the fourth quarter of its 2017 fiscal year ended January 31, 2017, including:

  • Data protection and disaster recovery between data centers and cloud with integrated primary and secondary storage offerings
  • Synchronous replication for zero recovery point objectives (RPO) and near-zero recovery time objectives (RTO)
  • Enterprise cloud platform based on Tintri’s web services architecture and REST APIs to simplify the deployment and management of enterprise cloud

Tintri added a record number of customers of its enterprise cloud platform with its autonomous services, automation, self-service, and predictive analytics capabilities.  In Q4 of fiscal 2017, Tintri recorded its most $1 million deals in a single quarter.

“Tintri’s recent results highlight that organizations wanting public cloud agility in their data center are choosing Tintri Enterprise Cloud,” said Ken Klein, chairman and CEO of Tintri. “For the first time, in Q4 of fiscal 2017, all-flash represented a majority of our quarterly bookings. And software continues to deliver differentiated value—attach rates are at an all-time high and Tintri Analytics has been adopted by more than one-third of our customers worldwide. Tintri has made the right bets—the market continues to move in our direction as enterprises and cloud service providers demand storage that works like a building block to enable automation and self-service.”

By building an enterprise cloud on Tintri, the Oakland Raiders NFL organization reduced operating expenses (OpEx) for its IT infrastructure by up to 74 percent, enabling it to pay back their Tintri investment in under six months. “Our IT team is responsible for ensuring high performance for all of the applications that run our business,” noted Matthew Pasco, vice president, Information Technology for the Oakland Raiders. “Unfortunately, our legacy storage environment was slow and difficult to manage. The decision to go with Tintri was actually quite simple. Tintri is essentially a hands-off platform. It manages itself, so we don’t have to do anything to make sure everything is running well.”

Tintri’s leadership in enterprise cloud infrastructure continued to be recognized by numerous analysts and publications, including:

  • 2016 CDW Partner of the Year
  • 2016 CRN Storage Vendor of the Year 2016
  • Gartner recognized Tintri as a Visionary for the third consecutive year in its Magic Quadrant for General-Purpose Disk Arrays

Bloombase announced its StoreSafe Data-at-Rest Encryption solution is fully interoperable with the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM) and is validated Ready for IBM Security Intelligence by IBM

SUNNYVALE, CA – March 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Bloombase is pleased to announce that its StoreSafe Data-at-Rest Encryption solution is fully interoperable with the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM) and is validated Ready for IBM Security Intelligence by IBM. This combination ushers in significantly enhanced convenience for enterprises looking for a powerful data storage encryption solution that also offers convenient, centralized key management features. These features greatly simplify the process of meeting of regulatory compliance.

Today’s insatiable demand for off-premises and cloud-based storage continues unabated and remains a challenge for enterprises who need to manage the unceasing amount of business and mission-critical data being generated daily. This in turn places ever greater pressure on ensuring the protection and confidentiality of data, while remaining compliant with regulatory requirements. Bloombase’s StoreSafe data-at-rest encryption technology and IBM’s Security Key Lifecycle Manager offers a potent combination of a turn-key, non-disruptive and application transparent stored data encryption solution with a powerful, centralized and automated key management system.

To the network, Bloombase StoreSafe appears like a proxy and operates like a standards-based LUN, network share, backup target or RESTful service endpoint. When an application makes a storage request, StoreSafe automatically and transparently encrypts the plain-text payload with an encryption security key before it is persisted as a ciphertext on the physical storage medium. Similarly, this ciphertext is automatically decrypted on-the-fly as data is requested from the persistent storage medium. Applications are never aware that the persisted data is encrypted and therefore existing applications work as-is, without modification or adaptation. Furthermore, any unauthorized extraction of data yields only the encrypted ciphertext.

“The issue of protecting sensitive data is only going to get progressively more complicated as the amount of data and number of storage strategies increases. Bloombase StoreSafe works across the full spectrum of storage systems from network and disk to virtual and cloud systems, whether it might be structured or unstructured data,” said Sean Xiang, Bloombase CEO. “Combining this critical capability with an OASIS KMIP standards-based encryption key management system like the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager, gives enterprises unparalleled control over their security compliance processes.”

The management of the encryption and decryption security keys is automatically handled through IBM’s Security Key Lifecycle Manager. SKLM provides a centralized and seamless interface through which to administer the creation, importation, distribution, back up, archiving as well as management of key lifecycles. This cleanly implemented segregation of data encryption and security key management duties makes meeting regulatory standards that mandate strong protection and control of encryption keys such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) significantly more convenient and cost effective.

Both Bloombase StoreSafe and the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager are built upon FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic modules and together, this combination allows Bloombase and IBM to even better address the needs of large-scale enterprises, particularly those in the Banking, Financial Services, Insurance and Public sectors. These go-to-market solutions represent a straightforward means to enable organization-wide data storage threat mitigation and regulatory compliance.

  • https://www-304.ibm.com/partnerworld/gsd/solutiondetails.do?solution=27715
  • https://www.bloombase.com/go/ibm

Bloombase will showcase the StoreSafe data-at-rest encryption solution with IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager at IBM InterConnect on March 19-23, 2017. For more information, visit https://www.ibm.com/interconnect

WOBURN, MA – March 21, 2017 – /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky Lab today announced a new report, which highlights consumers’ attitudes and behaviors toward their digital clutter, and how a lack of app maintenance could leave devices vulnerable to security threats.

Digital Clutter is a phenomenon resulting from increased amounts of content stored on smartphones, tablets and computers. The findings are part of a new report compiled by Kaspersky Lab called “Digital Clutter and Its Dangers.”* The study is based on insight gained from an online survey across 17 countries, an experiment into app performance by Kaspersky Lab internal testers and statistical analysis from the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN).

The study found that consumers typically install 12 Android apps every month and delete only 10, in effect adding two apps to their device on a monthly basis. A build-up of apps means that it’s important to keep them up-to-date to prevent a mobile malware attack through an app vulnerability. Although half (55%) of survey participants said they regularly revise the contents of their devices and delete unused apps and content, a quarter of consumers (28%) only update apps on their devices when they are forced to, and 10 percent try not to do it at all.

One of the main dangers is that the apps themselves can put user data and devices at risk. Technical findings from Kaspersky Lab show that of 100 Android apps users can manage (i.e. install and delete), 83 have access to sensitive user data, such as contacts, messages and data, and can even make calls and send SMSs.

In addition, findings from KSN show how apps can operate without user permission. When a representative sample of 66 of the most popular Android apps were tested, 54 launched in the background without users even touching them, consuming, on average, 22Mb of traffic per day without any user interaction.

One way to control what an app or program can access is to be aware of application settings, and understanding its terms & conditions. However, the report found that only 33 percent of people intentionally adjust the settings of each application on any devices. Furthermore, 63 percent don’t read licensing agreements, read it too quickly or can only recall main points or not much of the material.

“Users are exposing devices and personal data to security threats by failing to undertake simple but essential care for their devices,” said Andrei Mochola, head of consumer business at Kaspersky Lab. “The build-up of digital clutter on our devices means that we increasingly overlook the maintenance of these apps. We do so at our peril because this can lead to a wide range of problems such as device glitches, battery life issues or malware infection. We urge users to put their digital houses in order. Just like a clean, uncluttered room breathes fresh energy into your home and life, in the same way, an uncluttered computer or smartphone results in a more enjoyable, and a crucially, safer experience.”

In order to combat the clutter and protect your personal data, users are advised to take the following steps:

  • Update apps and software – regular updates should be undertaken as soon as new versions of apps and programs are released;
  • Change app settings – manage how each app interacts with your devices. Failure to maintain settings – like those that can track user locations and share data with third party servers – may result in unused apps gaining access to information on the device without you being aware.
  • ‘Spring clean’ your device – clear out and refresh the information stored on your devices; determine what information is stored on which apps and what permissions each program has.
  • Use dedicated software – software cleaners such as the one integrated into Kaspersky Lab flagship security solutions, scan all applications installed on your device and mark those posing potential risk or are rarely used.

*The study “Digital Clutter and its Dangers” was based on insight gained from a unique combination of online research and technical analysis of security threats and app performance:

  • Statistics from the Kaspersky Security Network, a cloud-based system that processes depersonalized cyber threat-related statistics received from millions of Windows and Android devices owned by Kaspersky Lab users across the globe.
  • A real-life experiment on Android devices analyzed the performance of applications was conducted in January 2017 by Kaspersky Lab internal testers.
  • An online survey conducted by research firm Toluna and Kaspersky Lab in January 2017 assessed the attitudes of 16,250 users aged over 16 years old from 17 countries. Data was weighted to be globally representative and consistent, split equally between men and women.

• Simplified, cost-reducing cold storage pricing model now available across cloud object storage services
• New cold storage service designed to significantly reduce data recovery times
• Expanded partnership with NetApp broadens options for cloud storage adoption

LAS VEGAS – IBM InterConnect – 20 Mar 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) today unveiled new additions to the IBM Cloud Object Storage family. The company is offering clients new choices for archival data and a new pricing model to more easily apply intelligence to unpredictable data patterns using analytics and cognitive tools. IBM also announced an expanded partnership with NetApp that provides NetApp customers with more ways to take advantage of IBM Cloud.

Businesses typically have to manage across three types of data workloads: “hot” for data that’s frequently accessed and used; “cool” for data that’s infrequently accessed and used; and “cold” for archival data. Cold storage is often defined as cheaper, but slower; for example, if a business uses cold storage, it typically has to wait extended periods of time to access data, limiting the ability to rapidly use that data to derive insights. As a result, there is a tendency to store data in more expensive hot storage.

IBM’s new cloud storage service, IBM Cloud Object Storage Flex (Flex), uses a “pay as you use” model of storage tiers potentially lowering the price by 53 percent compared to AWS S3 IA1 and 75 percent compared to Azure GRS Cool Tier.2 Flex is a new cloud storage service offering simplified pricing for clients whose data usage patterns are difficult to predict. Flex enables clients to benefit from the cost savings of cold storage for rarely accessed data, while maintaining high accessibility to all data.

Additionally, the IBM Cloud Object Storage Cold Vault (Cold Vault) service gives clients access to cold storage data on the IBM Cloud and is designed to lead the category for cold data recovery times among major competitors. Cold Vault joins the existing Standard and Vault tiers to complete a range of cloud storage tiers that are available with expanded expertise and methods via Bluemix and through the IBM Bluemix Garages.

“Clients need faster access to more of their data to become cognitive businesses with a deep understanding of markets and customer needs,” said John Morris, general manager, IBM Cloud Object Storage. “IBM’s new cloud storage services and innovative pricing model provides clients an efficient and less expensive way to act on insights from unpredictable data patterns.”

IBM and NetApp expand partnership with new cloud object storage solutions
NetApp and IBM are expanding a long-standing partnership with the launch of new capabilities that allow NetApp customers to take advantage of IBM Cloud.

NetApp’s AltaVault3 cloud backup solutions will now automatically be able to send backups to IBM Cloud Object Storage on IBM Cloud. Incorporating native support for IBM Cloud Object Storage into AltaVault solutions allows NetApp users to deploy backup data to the IBM Cloud. It helps reduce unnecessary data center expansion and enables AltaVault users to take advantage of IBM Cloud Object Storage’s flexibility, security and regional fault tolerance.

“Our expanded partnership with IBM provides NetApp customers with new ways to take advantage of elastic cloud economics using IBM Cloud,” said Henri Richard, executive vice president, Worldwide Field and Customer Operations, NetApp. “These new solutions further the progress of our Data Fabric strategy and strengthen our leadership in helping customers seamlessly manage their data in the hybrid cloud era.”

As part of the agreement, NetApp will offer backup and archival solutions that integrate with IBM Cloud Object Storage via sales channels.

This announcement complements IBM’s resiliency services including those offered through IBM Global Business Services.

InterConnect is IBM’s cloud and cognitive conference where more than 20,000 developers, clients and partners are being introduced to the latest advancements in cloud computing through 2,000 sessions, labs and certifications. IBM is positioning both enterprise and startup clients for success with a complete portfolio of cloud services and marquee partnerships, supporting a wide range of applications including: big data, analytics, blockchain and cognitive computing.

New initiatives focus on cognitive, cloud and data science education and training to support new collar jobs

LAS VEGAS, NV  – IBM InterConnect – 20 Mar 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Galvanize today are announcing new cognitive, cloud and data science training initiatives on IBM Cloud, which will aim to increase the talent pool of cognitive developers and data scientists. This partnership will work to bridge the emerging skills gap for professionals by tapping the accessibility of cloud to bring an advanced cognitive and data skills curriculum to a broad range of global developers and data scientists.

This extension of the IBM and Galvanize partnership consists of the new IBM Cognitive Course, delivered digitally through Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform. The collaboration also provides physical spaces for training and education through the new Cognitive Builder Fair Initiative and the Cognitive Builder Space, both of which provide opportunities for hands-on learning and access to cognitive and data science experts.

The curriculum will be hosted on IBM Bluemix, which provides the foundation and services for a range of development environments, including the Watson Data Platform, the Watson Developer Cloud Platform and the IBM Data Science Experience. The first Cognitive Builder Space opens today at InterConnect, IBM’s annual cloud and cognitive conference, and features tutorials led by cognitive and data science experts.

Technology advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are moving rapidly. As is the case with any budding industry, a skills gap is emerging in which the market doesn’t have enough experienced developers to address the growing demand for cognitive and AI development. IBM and Galvanize together will bring cognitive skills and data science curriculum to individuals interested in some of the most lucrative careers in tech and in helping bring to bear the benefits of man and machine.

“There is simply more demand for cognitive and AI development skills than currently exists in the market,” said Willie Tejada, IBM Chief Developer Advocate. “We want to help developers access the skills required to pursue some of the most lucrative jobs in tech, while supporting business by increasing the talent pool. The cognitive and AI revolution is upon us, and together with organizations like Galvanize we can advance the state of technology innovation and increase contributions from more people than ever before.”

“Galvanize has an established mastery and proven track record of success in teaching data scientists and developers in an immersive setting. On their strong market-leader foundation, Galvanize will craft and teach a curriculum that will integrate IBM’s skills and subject matter expertise,” said Jim Deters, CEO of Galvanize.

The new programs integrate IBM’s skills and subject matter expertise in data science and cognitive development with Galvanize’s immersive learning philosophy and deep community of students, startups and instructors. IBM is among the first major cognitive technology providers to design such a course to prepare next-generation developers and data scientists for new collar jobs that support the fast pace of innovation in this area.

The IBM Cognitive Course is an online, self-directed, four-week program led by Galvanize and hosted on IBM Bluemix. The approximately 40 hours will cover an introduction to machine learning and AI and the business problems these cognitive technologies can solve; prototyping cognitive products with IBM Watson APIs; emerging roles from architect to developer and operations; and challenges of building a cognitive system in its entirety. Developers representing a major systems integrator, a venture capital group and a leading retail chain are anticipated to be among the first to receive the IBM Cognitive Course at the IBM India Labs.

The Cognitive Builder Fair Initiative will house a series of events in Austin, Denver, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Boston. These two-day builder fairs will include workshops, tutorials and hands-on labs. The events will also provide a forum for local cognitive developers and data scientists to exchange ideas, as well as engage in hackathons at which participants can use cognitive solutions to tackle major social, environmental and business challenges.

The Cognitive Builder Space and Integration Initiative will bring the cognitive and data science learning communities together for in-depth training sessions, networking events, meetups, hackathons and competitions. They will include space where developers and data scientists can participate in hands-on opportunities with data science and cognitive technologies. The communities will have access to IBM and Galvanize ‘office hours’ in these spaces – the first of which will be available today at InterConnect.

Founded in 2012, Galvanize is focused on making education and growth accessible to anyone – especially underrepresented groups in the tech industry. It provides courseware, events and workspaces where professionals can collaborate and brings together industry, students, world-class education and passionate founders in one community.

This partnership with Galvanize extends the relationship between IBM and Galvanize, which was founded in 2014 with the launch of IBM Bluemix Garages. The San Francisco and New York locations of the IBM Bluemix Garage network are hosted within the Galvanize campuses in those cities, embedding IBM in the heart of Galvanize’s entrepreneurial tech learning communities. Also located in London, Toronto, Melbourne, Nice, Singapore and Tokyo, IBM Bluemix Garages serve as a hub where developers, product managers and designers can come together to build on Bluemix.

TOKYO, JAPAN – March 17, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — NetJapan, publisher of disk imaging backup, system disaster recovery, and virtualization software, releases ActiveImage Protector 2016 R2 for Hyper-V Enterprise with support for Windows Server 2016, enhanced functionality, and new features.

ActiveImage Protector for Hyper-V is a host-based backup solution. Backups are performed on the physical host, and require no software agents installed on guest machines. Host-based backups created with Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC) improve compression ratios by effectively eliminating redundant data across the host’s virtual machines.

Improved Inline Data Deduplication Compression reduces storage resource usage up to 70%, supports volumes larger than 8 terabytes, and decreases restore and resume times by as much as 50% over previous versions. NetJapan’s ReZoom it!™ technology can easily resume single or multiple virtual machines from a specific checkpoint to the original or an alternate host.

ImageCenter LE uses NetJapan’s BackOff™ technology to schedule replication and consolidation tasks to local or off-site, high capacity storage resources, improving local system performance by offloading system and storage resource consumption to alternate or dedicated systems.

Additional Features and Updates:

  • Enhanced network client management console
  • Expanded GPT and uEFI bare metal system recovery support
  • ActiveImage Protector Boot Environment for Hyper-V host recovery
  • Create custom boot media for optical and flash devices

Watson Discovery Service gets expanded beta functionality and will power a new, experimental platform solution called Watson Company Profiler

LAS VEGAS, NV – IBM INTERCONNECT 2017 – 20 Mar 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new and expanded capabilities that enhance IBM Watson’s data analysis and discovery capabilities on the IBM Cloud. By expanding Watson Discovery Service with new functionality and introducing Watson Company Profiler, an experimental platform solution built with Watson Discovery, IBM is further empowering developers and enterprise users with best-in-class offerings to quickly and easily source insights from massive amounts of data.

IBM Enriches Watson Discovery Service with New Beta Functionality
In April, IBM will roll out new beta functionality in the Watson Discovery Service. The functionality will enable relevancy training and passage retrieval capabilities to find better answers, adding to the service’s existing ability to identify useful patterns and insights in large datasets. Many data scientists spend as much as 80 percent of their time on “data janitor” work – collecting, cleaning and organizing data sets. With the Watson Discovery Service, IBM is giving users the power to unlock value in data without having to spend unnecessary resources on complex data pipeline engineering and data wrangling challenges.

Today, developers go through many cumbersome steps to create solutions that can extract insights from unstructured data, often requiring developers to integrate multiple services to achieve the desired result. The Watson Discovery Service packages core Watson AI capabilities with simple tooling and APIs that enable developers to quickly upload, enrich, and index large collections of your private data and use this with NLP-enriched public data provided out of the box with Watson Discovery.

“To date, we’ve only explored a tiny fraction of the world’s existing data. Watson represents a new partnership between technology and people, to revolutionize the way we discover things and make better decisions – all at incredible speed and scale,” said Beth Smith, general manager, IBM Watson AI. “With the advanced discovery capabilities of the Watson platform, IBM is shining a light on dark data by unlocking patterns, trends, and relationships in data that were previously invisible.”

With the newest beta capabilities, developers can improve end user experience by displaying answers that are within passages without any additional configuration or special processing. Additionally, developers can take advantage of the relevancy training module to further customize responses using a machine learning model.

Using the full power of the Watson Discovery Service, industry professionals are able to do the following:

  • A legal research team can quickly extract relevant details from dense legal briefs, past legal proceedings and other lengthy documents to provide consolidated specific insights for a legal proceeding rather than identify documents that mention a key word or term.
  • A marketer could gain real-time insight into brand perception, monitoring both social media and news sources for discussions around relevant topics, assess the results to quickly identify a trend and act to address a customer issue in real time.
  • A customer service department manager can find insights on customer pain points, reduce customer churn and improve agent productivity without having to sift through individual customer call transcripts, social media and forum data content, and other internal content sources.

Rocket Fuel, a predictive marketing platform, has been applying the NLP-enriched news content function of Watson Discovery Service to help their digital marketing clients target advertisements in the right context, in real time. By using Watson Discovery Service, Rocket Fuel can analyze and annotate 300,000 English language news articles each day, and scan the top 10,000 sources every 7 minutes to provide immediate trend analysis. Clients can then use Rocket Fuel’s interactive user interface to quickly hone in on new brand-related keywords that appear in news stories and control whether to increase, decrease, ignore or stop serving ads alongside these keywords as they appear in online news stories. For example, an automotive brand may wish to increase its advertising on pages with the keyword “J.D. Power”; conversely, it may wish to pause a campaign when the keyword “recall” appears.

“Our company’s fundamental value is in using Artificial Intelligence to enable brands to make smarter, faster decisions with their online marketing,” said Randy Wootton, CEO, Rocket Fuel. “Given the exponential rate of digital information being generated and consumed, it’s increasingly challenging for marketers to keep track of their digital presence and identify where and when to place ads for maximum impact. That’s why Watson Discovery Service is such a game-changer for our clients. Rocket Fuel’s Predictive Marketing Platform is now responsive, in real-time, to sentiment in breaking news headlines. Rocket Fuel clients can use Watson Discovery Service to control their association with specific keywords and optimize media spend automatically based on the positive or negative sentiment impact. This means better performance, improved brand safety, and deeper intelligence for our business.”

IBM Introduces Experimental Solution, “Watson Company Profiler”
Additionally, IBM will soon release an experimental platform solution called Watson Company Profiler, a pre-built cognitive discovery solution that will enable company intelligence and analysis for business users. Built using Watson Discovery Service, Watson Company Profiler accesses Dun & Bradstreet’s commercial database of 265 million business records and sifts through 30,000 global data sources to identify relevant insights about a company. Surfacing publicly available data, like content from news outlets, social media, journals or annual reports, as well as Dun & Bradstreet proprietary data, Watson Company Profiler can help businesses glean meaningful insights.

To better understand how Watson Company Profiler will be used, consider the job of a financial services leader looking to strengthen her/his company’s capabilities. This person will use Watson Company Profiler to acquire market intelligence needed to better understand competitive landscape, product positioning and potentially to identify new targets for a merger or acquisition.

To learn more about Watson Company Profiler or to sign up for release updates, visit the Watson Company Profiler landing page.

The expanded Watson Discovery Service capabilities and upcoming roll out of Watson Company Profiler demonstrate IBM’s commitment to providing developers and businesses with the tools and features to execute on their vision and, in turn, bring to market a new class of cognitive innovations to transform how businesses make decisions.

About IBM Watson: Pioneering a New Era of Computing
