New Reserved Capacity Pricing Model Enables Cloud Migration at a Fraction of the Cost

BOSTON, MA – February 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, today announced a disruptive new Reserved Capacity Storage (RCS) pricing model that allows customers to purchase a reserved amount of cloud storage for a fixed price for periods of 1,3, or 5 years. This new pricing model allows customers to easily compare the cost of cloud storage to the cost of on-premises storage hardware. RCS also makes it easy for Wasabi channel partners to sell cloud storage capacity as a SKU in the same way that they would sell a new on-premises storage appliance.

When it is time for a technology refresh or time to update hardware, Wasabi RCS is a perfect solution to support back-up, archive and other cloud storage strategies like hybrid and multi-cloud architectures in a more cost-effective manner than on-premises storage hardware. For example, a 100 TB storage appliance from one of the leading manufacturers has a list price of approximately $130,000. With maintenance, the five year total cost would be well over $240,000, not including data center and people costs. By contrast, 100 TB/5 year Wasabi’s Reserved Capacity Storage costs under $40,000, including premium technical support.

RCS is an ideal option for those businesses that prefer one-time payments to monthly billing such as educational institutions, government agencies, nonprofits, large enterprises as well as channel partners such as value added resellers and system integrators. Wasabi’s research has shown that these institutions prefer the predictability of a fixed price PO to variable monthly bills. Channel partners can also expand their margins by purchasing RCS and then reselling it to their customers.

One of Wasabi’s first RCS customers Cory Pierce, IT Manager and Associate Principal of Midwest-based Architectural and Engineering design firm The Clark Enersen Partners shares, “As a multidiscipline firm working on projects spanning multiple industries, we are highly protective of our data and will only utilize partners we can trust. Wasabi was easy to use and interfaced well with our existing storage solutions. With Wasabi’s RCS pricing model we were able to realize substantial cost savings and modernize an aging archive workflow which gave us more immediate access to our data. Storing our data with Wasabi with the RCS pricing model was a logical choice.”

As cloud storage becomes increasingly popular, many companies conclude that not all of their data should reside off-site. RCS fits the hybrid cloud model where some data is stored on-premises and other data is stored in the cloud. Popular uses for RCS include backups, second copies of data, and archives. Best practices mandate that companies keep one copy of their data off-site, and RCS offers a simple and extremely cost effective way to move copies of data to secure Wasabi locations, all at a guaranteed fixed price.

The model is also beneficial for Wasabi’s channel partners who are transitioning clients to the cloud. Unlike reserved capacity pricing from the hyperscalers, Wasabi has no fees for egress or API requests, so the RCS price is exactly how much the customer will pay for storage, no matter how many times they access their data.

“As customers migrate their data to the cloud, we want to be able to offer them a pricing model that compares favorably to how they purchase on-premises storage hardware. Companies are used to buying hardware and issuing one-time purchase orders. We want to make buying cloud storage just like buying hardware. RCS helps customers with budgeting, purchasing, and planning their storage,” says David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “With most of the world’s data still stored in on-premises hardware, we want to make it easy for people to migrate their data to the cloud and start saving enormous amounts of money in the process.”

Wasabi is the hot cloud storage company delivering disruptive storage technology that is 1/5th the price of Amazon S3, faster than the competition with no fees for egress or API requests. Unlike first generation cloud vendors, Wasabi is solely focused on providing the world’s best cloud object storage service.

With more than 150 new features and enhancements – including modern NAS support, Multi-VM Instant Recovery and heightened ransomware protection – v10 includes data protection capabilities that increase availability, portability, and extensibility for Cloud Data Management

Baar, Switzerland; February 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ – Veeam® Software, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™, today announced the general availability of NEW Veeam Availability Suite™ v10, ushering in the next generation of data protection capabilities that increase data availability, portability, and extensibility. First introduced in 2008 as Veeam Backup & Replication™, Veeam’s flagship Backup solution – Veeam Availability Suite – now delivers modern file data protection for Networked Attached Storage (NAS), Multi-VM Instant Recovery™ to automate disaster recovery (DR) and greatly enhanced ransomware protection. With greater platform extensibility, data mining through APIs, and more than 150 major enhancements, Veeam has launched the industry’s most robust solution for complete data management and protection for hybrid-cloud environments.

As organizations adopt hybrid cloud strategies to fuel rapid Digital Transformation, data is becoming critical to business success.

According to the 2019 Veeam Cloud Data Management Report, 73% of organizations are failing to meet users’ demands for uninterrupted access to applications and data; many companies are now looking to embrace Cloud Data Management to better meet protection needs and leverage the power of their data. Veeam has extended the solution to be both broader and deeper with more platform support and advanced capabilities enabling organizations to be in better control of their data so they can meet their most important business objectives.

V10 delivers new capabilities that bring simplicity, flexibility and reliability, enabling businesses to achieve the following:

  • Modernize and simplify the protection of large file shares and file servers with powerful NAS backup.
  • Keep business running with the next-generation Instant Recovery engine, and Multi-VM Instant Recovery for disaster recovery from massive datacenter outages.
  • Simplify off-site backup and get 100% bulletproof protection from ransomware and insider threats with enhanced S3 object storage integration and immutable backups.

  • Broader platform and ecosystem supportincluding new, advanced capabilities for Linux, HPE Primera and HPE StoreOnce, Nutanix AHV, PostgreSQL, MySQL and more.

“HPE is redefining storage for our customers and we need partners who understand the journey toward digital transformation depends on data and intelligence,” said Jim Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “With Veeam, we ensure the critical data needed to accelerate business is safe and readily available to customers at all times. We are thrilled that Veeam now supports HPE Primera and offers enhancements for HPE StoreOnce so customers’ data is always available, recoverable and protected.”

This latest release continues Veeam’s support for Microsoft Cloud services including integration with Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup for Office 365 and Veeam Backup for Azure.

Webroot Also Observed a 125% Increase in Malware Targeting Windows 7®

WATERLOO, ON – February 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX) (TSX: OTEX) today issued the 2020 Webroot Threat Report, highlighting not only the agility and innovation of cybercriminals who continue to seek out new ways to evade defenses, but also their commitment to long-established attack methods. Most notably, Webroot observed a 640 percent increase in phishing attempts and a 125 percent increase in malware targeting Windows 7®. The report is derived from metrics captured and analyzed by Webroot’s advanced, cloud-based machine learning architecture: the Webroot® Platform.

“In the cybersecurity industry the only certainty is that there is no certainty, and there is no single silver bullet solution,” said Hal Lonas, Senior Vice President and CTO, SMB and Consumer, OpenText. “The findings from this year’s report underline why it’s critical that businesses and users of all sizes, ensure they’re not only protecting their data but also preparing for future attacks by taking simple steps toward cyber resilience through a defense-in-depth approach that addresses user behavior and the best protection for network and endpoints.”

Download the full report here – https://mypage.webroot.com/threat-report.html

Notable Findings:

  • Phishing URLs encountered grew by 640 percent in 2019.
    • 1 in 4 malicious URLs is hosted on an otherwise non-malicious domain.
    • 8.9 million URLs were found hosting a cryptojacking script.
    • The top sites impersonated by phishing sites or cybercriminals are Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Google, PayPal and DropBox.
    • The top five kinds of websites impersonated by phishing sites are crypto exchanges (55%), gaming (50%), web email (40%), financial institutions (40%) and payment services (32%).
  • Malware targeting Windows 7® increased by 125 percent.
    • 93.6 percent of malware seen was unique to a single PC – the highest rate ever observed.
    • 85 percent of threats hide in one of four locations: %temp%, %appdata%, %cache%, and %windir%, with more than half of threats (54.4%) on business PCs hiding in %temp% folders. This risk can be easily mitigated by setting a Windows policy to disallow programs from running from the temp directory.
    • IP addresses associated with Windows exploits grew by 360 percent, with the majority of exploits targeting out-of-date operating systems.
  • Consumer PCs remain nearly twice as likely to get infected as business PCs.
    • The data reveals that regions most likely to be infected also have the highest rates of using older operating systems.
    • Of the infected consumer devices, more than 35 percent were infected more than three times, and nearly 10 percent encountered six or more infections.
    • The continued insecurity of consumer PCs underscore the risk companies face in allowing employees to connect to business networks from their personal devices.
  • Trojans and malware accounted for 91.8 percent of Android™ threats.

Explore all the findings here – https://mypage.webroot.com/threat-report.html

The 2020 Webroot Threat Report presents analysis, findings and insights from the Webroot Threat Research team on the state of cyber threats. The report analyzed samples from more than 37 billion URLs, 842 million domains, 4 billion IP addresses, 31 million active mobile apps, and 36 billion file behavior records.

  • Strong enterprise demand for Rubrik’s award-winning Cloud Data Management products including ransomware recovery, hybrid multi-cloud, and automation solutions;
  • Company ends fiscal year with an annualized gross bookings run rate of $600 million driven by strong traction in the enterprise market; with nearly half of bookings from customers who have spent $1 million or more to date; and
  • Market leadership and rapid innovation continues with introduction of new solutions across continuous data protection, data classification, database automation, and cloud native backup.

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 13, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Rubrik, the Multi-Cloud Data Control™ company, today announced highlights of its most recent fiscal year ended, January 31, 2020. Over 2,500 enterprises and governments around the globe now rely upon the Rubrik’s market-leading Cloud Data Management solution that manages, governs and orchestrates data across data centers and clouds. Rubrik eliminates the plethora of disparate tools and disjointed processes required to address IT resilience, hybrid multi-cloud, automation, and cyber-resilience.

“Through fiscal year 2020, we delivered new capabilities to address the priorities of enterprise customers worldwide who are moving to cloud, driving digital transformation, and responding to new cyber threats,” says Rubrik Co-Founder and CEO Bipul Sinha. “We are pleased that a number of leading Fortune 100 businesses are seeing success with Rubrik.”

Leading Global Enterprises Depend on Rubrik

A growing number of leading enterprises and governments choose Rubrik to manage, govern and orchestrate their data across hybrid multi-clouds. Among these customers are:

  • 3 of 4 Fortune 100 Telecom Companies;
  • 2 of 4 Fortune 100 Defense and Aerospace Companies;
  • 2 of 3 Fortune 100 Specialty Retailers; and
  • 4 of 5 Fortune 100 Insurance Companies.

For customers, Rubrik delivers measurable benefits such as improved business resilience, increased IT agility, cost savings, and accelerated recovery from modern cyber threats such as ransomware.

  • Meredith Corporation Achieves Digital Transformation Goals with Rubrik and AWS: One of America’s largest media companies and home of leading brands including PEOPLE, InStyle and Allrecipes, Meredith Corporation uses Rubrik to securely tier data to AWS, while providing instant data accessibility to publication editors, producers, and designers. Meredith also leverages Rubrik to simplify data protection of its AWS EC2 environment and provide full data visibility and control of its hybrid cloud to avoid costly downtime, assist with meeting stringent compliance regulations, and ultimately protect the company’s bottom line.“In the media industry, downtime could mean a magazine edition doesn’t go to print on time or a TV segment doesn’t run. From a business perspective, we see the benefits of adopting cloud as endless. Eliminating tape, embracing Rubrik, and migrating to the cloud was a bold decision, but also the right one for Meredith.” – David Coffman, Director of Enterprise Infrastructure.

Growing Ransomware Threat Driving Strong Demand
As the frequency of successful ransomware attacks such as WannaCry, NotPetya and others, continues to grow, governments and enterprises increasingly seek reliable recovery solutions.

Rubrik for Ransomware, an integrated part of Rubrik Cloud Data Management, delivers instant recovery with the Industry’s only natively-immutable backups. When paired with Rubrik’s global search and API-driven automation, customers can quickly recover complete data centers after a ransomware attack.

Polaris Radar, Rubrik’s SaaS product for ransomware, adds ML-powered detection and pinpointing of ransomware attacks for faster and more accurate remediations, which in turn reduces business disruption.

  • Kern Medical Center Recovers From Ransomware with Rubrik: As ransomware becomes increasingly sophisticated, successful attacks are more prevalent. To respond quickly, leading companies like Kern Medical Center are adopting a holistic ransomware response strategy.“We were hit with a ransomware attack in June that infiltrated our environment and began encrypting data, rendering it unusable. The attack was discovered after an hour when users reported they couldn’t access their systems. Rubrik helped us quickly recover 100% of the systems it was protecting. After the incident, we were so impressed that we moved more of our legacy systems to Rubrik and are fully confident that Rubrik’s immutable backups will protect us from future incidents.” – Craig Witmer, CTO.

Rapid Innovation
In FY2020, Rubrik continued the rapid pace of innovation with the launch of Rubrik Andes 5.0 and 5.1, and Polaris SaaS based applications Rubrik Sonar and Rubrik for O365.

Rubrik Andes addresses the specific needs of large enterprises with benefits such as:

  • VMware certified Continuous Data Protection solution for near-zero RPO;
  • Data Classification for Data Compliance and Governance;
  • Database backup/recovery and cloning automation;
  • SaaS driven Cloud Native Application backup & recovery; and
  • Unprecedented performance for very large NAS environments, and integration with NetApp SnapDiff.

With new Polaris SaaS-based applications, Rubrik enables enterprises to centrally manage their cloud or on-premises data, and to utilize their data in innovative, new ways. Polaris SaaS applications introduced in FY2020 include: Polaris O365 ProtectionPolaris AppFlows for DR Orchestration across clouds, and Polaris Sonar for integrated identification and reporting of sensitive or regulated data.

Enhancing the Customer Experience
To better address the requirements of enterprise customers, Rubrik introduced new consumption models that delivered flexibility and reduced risk through subscription-based licensing, software-only licensing and license transferability to Cloud. Customer demand for new subscription offerings introduced in FY2020 has grown rapidly, with subscriptions accounting for nearly half of bookings by year end.

Rubrik also continued to invest in its award-winning customer experience, achieving an industry-leading, third party certified NetPromoter Score (NPS) of 82. In addition, the company also introduced named support and professional services for the enterprise market.

New Leaders and Global Expansion
Rubrik hired several veteran industry leaders across Product, Engineering and Sales in the fiscal year. Vinod Marur joined Rubrik as SVP of Global Engineering; Chendong Zou joined as VP of Engineering, and Thomas Cornely joined as VP of Products. The Company also on-boarded Brett Shirk and Wendy Bahr as Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Commercial Officer, respectively.

Rubrik increased its commitment in the EMEA and APJ markets, recruiting new senior leadership and opening offices in Singapore and Tokyo. The company also segmented the US sales organization into Commercial, Enterprise and Public Sector teams under new leaders to better serve its broad array of customers, and opened a new office in Reston, Virginia.

The innovation center will collaborate with startups and enterprises to solve data challenges

Tel Aviv, Israel – February 13, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ – Seagate® Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage and management solutions, today officially opens its Lyve™ Labs Israel.

Lyve Labs’ mission is to form partnerships with businesses in order to enable innovations by providing simple, secure, and efficient ways to work with exabytes of data. The initiative empowers the seamless movement of data, optimizing its business value both in flight and at rest.

“The reason Seagate created Lyve Labs is because we understand that innovation cannot happen in silos,” said Seagate’s CEO Dr. Dave Mosley. “It’s a work of collaboration. The innovators at Lyve Labs are indebted to others. In turn—drawing on over 40 years of Seagate’s research and development—we want to help enable innovations that use data for the good of humanity.”

Israel is a vibrant hub of datasphere innovation, with the largest number of startups per capita in the world and with more than 10% of the labor force employed in the high-tech industry. Prior to the lab’s opening today, Dr. Mosley will address an audience of investors and entrepreneurs at OurCrowd—the largest global investor summit in Israel—as one of its key speakers. The theme for the 2020 OurCrowd is “Startups: Going Beyond,” which aligns with Seagate’s vision of startup technologies pushing the innovation limits. The Lyve Labs center in Tel Aviv has already attracted a number of startups looking for solutions that harness data for the good of humanity. Partnerships tackling data challenges are already in progress. Today’s opening formalizes these relationships.

“We want to both help the ecosystem and learn from it,” said Erez Baum, head of Lyve Labs Israel. “Lyve Labs is as much a two-way learning platform as a co-creation center. The goal is to learn from our partners’ data challenges and develop solutions in collaboration with them to help them be more competitive in this data-driven economy.”

The companies partnering with Lyve Labs Israel take on data challenges as relevant as survival during an earthquake. “Our solution is currently based on the cloud, but we need to be closer to the edge,” said Benny Sasson, CTO of SeismicAI, the startup with the globally unique offering of earthquake early warning “wherever it’s needed.”

“We received a request from the National Institute of Natural Resources in Canada that our platform be installed as an on-premise, encrypted, secure, holistic solution—because of national security and data security concerns,” Sasson said. “So that’s why we turned to Lyve Labs. We want to transform our solution into, for example, a rack we can bring to our client and plug into their data center, and attain compliance with all regulations and resources there.”

HUB Security partnered with Lyve Labs Israel because it wants to benefit from Seagate’s expertise in trusted data solutions. “Built by ex-military cybersecurity experts, HUB Security offers the next-gen tamper-proof hardware security module platform designed for multitenant and high-performance operation, as well as flexibility to be easily customized for any advanced algorithm and business application,” said Eyal Moshe, the CEO of HUB Security. “We asked Lyve Labs to help us with a proof of concept of this solution.” For this purpose, a streamable hackathon may be hosted at the Tel Aviv center later this year.

Among other projects, the innovation center in Tel Aviv conducted a successful trial run of the Lyve™ Drive Shuttle. The project, which involved collaboration with UPS, proved that moving data physically in shuttles via its reliable global shipping network instead of uploading can be more cost-effective and faster at scale. The Lyve Drive Shuttle was launched at the 2020 CES in Las Vegas as a part of the Lyve Drive Mobile Systems family.

In addition to proofs of concept, solutions offered by Lyve Labs Israel will include consultations with experts who can help solve data challenges, design and qualification services, playbooks for scaling efficiently, reference architectures, services that can optimize data management flows, and infrastructure and test-bench facilities. In the spirit of open innovation, reference architectures and case studies will be published publicly online so that other companies can easily implement similar solutions.

Lyve Labs Israel will be Seagate’s flagship innovation center. Another Lyve Labs center is located in Longmont, Colorado, United States. Additional Lyve Labs centers are being planned globally.

About Lyve Labs Israel
Seagate Technology’s Lyve Labs is a collaborative platform through which Seagate partners with innovators, startups, and enterprises to create solutions that harness the power of data. The innovation center is located at 28 Ha’arbaa Street, North Tower 18th Floor, Tel-Aviv, Israel 6473925. Learn more by visiting https://labs.seagate.com

This is a key orchestration component of Promark’s Cloud Strategy and an integral part of our GTM around Containers, Kubernetes and OpenStack. We look forward to the challenges ahead, our continued leadership with advanced technologies and more importantly, guiding our VARS in their Cloud journey,” added President Brown.

Roughly 28% of attacks occurred on weekends

Woburn, MA – February 13, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — According to Kaspersky’s Q4 2019 DDoS attacks report, the number of attacks blocked by Kaspersky DDoS Protection in Q4 2018 amounts to only 56% of attacks detected in Q4 2019. Further investigation of botnet activity revealed that roughly 28% of attacks occurred on weekends, with the share of attacks on Sundays growing by two and a half percentage points, reaching 13%.

In Q4 2019, there were several large-scale DDoS attacks including those against financial institutions in South Africa, Singapore and Scandinavian countries. DDoS cyberattacks were also targeted at the Labour party in the United Kingdom as an attempt to disrupt its digital systems, as well as against Minecraft servers set up in the Vatican. This demonstrates that DDoS is still a common attack method among cybercriminals driven by ideological motives or seeking financial gain, and organizations should be prepared for such attacks and have a deep understanding of how they evolve.

The report highlights that the main trend during the last quarter of 2019 was increased botnet activity on Sundays. While the growth may seem relatively small, the share of DDoS attacks on this particular day of the week has historically been the lowest and most consistent throughout the year (around 11% of attacks in Q1 and Q3, and 10% in Q2).

ddos-attacks-2019.PNG
Distribution of DDoS attacks through week in 2019

Although the number of DDoS attacks detected by Kaspersky DDoS Protection has grown significantly compared to Q4 2018, the growth in comparison to Q3 2019 is only marginal (attacks in Q3 2019 equate to 92% of Q4 2019). There was a more notable rise in “smart” DDoS attacks, focusing on the application layer and carried out by skilled malefactors (as attacks in Q3 2019 were 73% of those in Q4 2019). This increase was easy to predict as November and December are traditionally a popular time for online business and retail activity. This year, however, Kaspersky experts did not identify a spike of DDoS attacks on Black Friday or Christmas holiday sales days.

“Despite significant growth in general, the holiday season turned out to be quieter than expected,” said Alexey Kiselev, business development manager of Kaspersky DDoS Protection. “We suspect that we didn’t see a storm of attacks on certain days because companies expanded their activity to engage with customers for the entirety of the holiday period, so there was no need for cybercriminals to launch an attack to coincide with a specific event. However, attackers can still find a way to spoil your leisure time, as cybercrime is not an ordinary nine-to-five job. With that in mind, it is important to ensure that your DDoS prevention solution can automatically protect your web assets.”

Company’s cloud data management technology enables mainframe customers to modernize data management and benefit from cloud economics

NEW YORK, NY — February 12, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Model9, a pioneer of cloud data management for mainframes, announced that it has raised $9 million in Series A funding to accelerate market adoption of its groundbreaking data management and business intelligence solutions. Global 2000 enterprises that rely on mainframe technology can now back up their business-critical data in the cloud, and derive the benefits from hybrid cloud technologies and economics.

The round was led by Intel Capital with participation from existing investors StageOne, North First Ventures and Glenrock Israel. The funds will be used to fuel global expansion and to further enhance Model9’s technology and product offerings, which have been successfully implemented by some of the world’s leading financial services institutes, government agencies and transportation companies.

Mainframes are used as the core computing platform of the world’s largest and most critical businesses. According to IBM, 92 of the world’s top 100 banks, leading insurance carriers and many retail, healthcare and government organizations rely on Mainframes, that process 29 billion ATM transactions every year and are counted for $7.7 trillion in credit card payments annually.

While IT executives in mainframe organizations rank implementing cloud technologies as a top priority, staffing, skills shortage and platform capabilities are reported as the main obstacles, resulting in slow adoption of cloud technologies and low usage of mainframe data in Business Intelligence initiatives.

“We help large enterprises accelerate their implementation of hybrid cloud and reduce the cost and complexity of their mainframe infrastructure, leveraging modern skills,” said Gil Peleg, founder and CEO of Model9. “The company has been enjoying a positive momentum with sales increasing 300% in the last quarter and a long list of prospects.”

This ability opens up a variety of DR, Archive and Storage use cases, scaling to thousands of companies from the financial and public sectors, among others. Furthermore, Model9’s solution enables conversion of mainframe-compatible file formats to object storage, thus allowing the company’s customers to utilize the latest business analytics, big data and AI solutions to gain insights from previously untapped data sets.”

OpenFlex™ F3100 Series Fabric Device Designated “Most Composable,” Lone NVMe-oF™ Product Recognized in the Hyperconverged and Composable Infrastructures Category

SAN JOSE, CA – Feb 12, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) has been selected as a finalist for Storage Magazine’s prestigious Products of the Year Awards for 2019. TechTarget and SearchStorage editors recognized the OpenFlex F3100 Series Fabric Device as “the most composable entrant in the finalist lineup” for the Hyperconverged and Composable Infrastructures category.

Now in its 18th year, the enterprise data storage Products of the Year Awards compare the best technology hardware, software and services offerings available across five categories. TechTarget’s expert panel of analysts, consultants and end users judged this year’s entrants based on technological innovation, performance, ease of integration into enterprise IT environments, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.

Products that qualified for the Hyperconverged and Composable Infrastructures category included solutions that combine storage, compute and virtualization resources for management as a single system through a common tool set. Composable systems and software that use a unifying API to disaggregate and manage shared pools of physical resources also qualified. As described by judges, “OpenFlex’s disaggregated architecture embraces open source to scale across public and private clouds. Impressive performance and density in a 3U all-flash array, the system is the only NVMe™ over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) finalist in this category. Disaggregating storage from servers by using NVMe-oF will improve storage utilization and performance balancing.”

The OpenFlex platform provides a new architectural approach to software-defined storage (SDS) infrastructure, enabling storage, networking, and compute to be disaggregated into shareable resource pools. Combined with an open standards-based, scalable and easy-to-use Open Composability API, OpenFlex helps IT managers better provision on the fly with simplified operations, eliminate underutilized resources and reduce TCO by up to 40 percent¹ when compared to hyperconverged infrastructure. The OpenFlex F3100 NVMe-oF storage device provides blazing-fast speeds up to 2.1 million IOPS, 11.7 GBps throughput, and latencies less than 48 microseconds. Each fabric-attached device is available in capacities of up to 61TB2, delivering extreme performance over two 50 gigabit Ethernet ports.

“Western Digital is fully committed to driving ecosystem-wide support and adoption of open composable infrastructure, and OpenFlex is the NVMe-oF foundational building block to help enterprises optimize their data storage environments,” said Kurt Chan, vice president, Data Center Platforms Business Unit at Western Digital. “It’s a great honor to have OpenFlex among the products listed for this esteemed award as it further validates our innovation and efforts to enable open, next-generation IT infrastructures.”

Western Digital’s data center solutions address a variety of needs in a fast-moving and ever-changing data technology landscape. Its broad data center portfolio includes its family of Ultrastar HDDs and SSDs; WD Gold HDDs; OpenFlex™ NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF™) open composable infrastructure; Ultrastar JBOF/JBOD storage platforms; Kazan NVMe-oF bridge solutions; and the Ultrastar memory extension drive.

“The Plan4Continuity business process automation software is a perfect match and will generate a completely new recurring revenue stream for our partners and help them support their customers even better”

-Lex Fabistas, Managing Director at CloudLand

OAKVILLE, ON – February 11, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — CloudOak is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with CloudLand B.V. (“CloudLand”), an award-winning value add distributor (“VAD”) of MSP and Reseller software services to the SME/SMB market for the Benelux region. CloudOak is a VAD of high-quality software solutions for communication, IT security and IT management environments.

CloudLand and CloudOak share the same goal; to strengthen our partners as IT professionals. CloudLand offers a complete range of software and a maximum flexible distribution system (which includes both local and cloud solutions). CloudLand further enriches partners with knowledge and market experience. They are convinced that we can learn from each other and benefit from shared knowledge. This is also reflected in CloudLand’s loyalty system, where dedicated partners benefit from substantial discounts, support in communication and entrepreneurship and provided with everything necessary to strengthen partners as IT professionals.

“I am very excited to work with Lex and the Cloudland team to service all Benelux MSPs and resellers. When I first met with Lex, we immediately recognized an opportunity for the region. From first demonstration to going to market CloudLand has been exceptional to work with. The team is eager to provide an exceptional suite of products and services to their clients and I’m pleased that Plan4Continuity now forms part of that product suite,” says Troy Cheeseman, co-founder of CloudOak. “CloudLand is uniquely positioned within the Benelux market and are investing in products that will not only offer service differentiation for their MSPs but will also provide a completely new MRR stream. CloudLand is working hard to help their partners transition from resellers (one-time sales) to managed services and Plan4Continuity will be a big part of that transition. This is very exciting for CloudOak, to be a part of this journey with CloudLand and their partner community,” concludes Cheeseman.

“The adoption of Plan4Continuity by Value Added Distributors within EMEA has been a very positive growth story for CloudOak. Forging a partnership with CloudLand means offering business continuity planning and business process automation solutions (such as Plan4Continuity) that serve both current and future IT requirements and establish solution-oriented projects for specialist partners. This means solutions that are flawlessly coordinated, offer a vast range of services, and make life easier for IT professionals”, says Jeff Collier, president of CloudOak.

“We are continuously expanding our MSP solutions offering. The Plan4Continuity business process automation software is a perfect match and will generate a completely new recurring revenue stream for our partners and help them support their customers even better,” says Lex Fabistas, Managing Director at CloudLand. “We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to working closely with the CloudOak team”, he concludes.

CloudLand now offers Plan4Continuity by CloudOak to MSPs and resellers, providing the following tangible benefits:

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