The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last decade has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many startups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer. Some of these companies are pure enablers, while others combine enablement functions with direct-to-market services. Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the cloud backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):
1/ Pure Enabler
2/ Enabler & Service Provider – Channel or Direct

Barcelona, Spain – February 29, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — The Huawei Product and Solution Launch 2024 was held successfully at MWC Barcelona 2024. Dr. Peter Zhou, President of Huawei Data Storage Product Line, launched three innovative solutions aimed at helping carriers worldwide build leading data infrastructure in the AI era: AI data lake solution, all-scenario data protection solution, and DCS full-stack data center solution.

The rapid development of large AI models is unleashing the value of data assets and paving the way for an era of data awakening. There are two major challenges in data infrastructure construction in the AI era. First, to extract knowledge from data, independent and scattered data sources must be aggregated in AI data factories to mine value from the data. This sets high requirements for data mobility. Second, data assetization is growing at a rapid pace. The average retention time of annotated AI data and model data is now more than three years, and some valuable corpus data needs to be permanently stored.

To address these challenges, Huawei has launched a series of innovative storage products and solutions to help carriers build leading data infrastructure in the AI era and facilitate service innovation.

  • AI data lake solution for transferring mass data to valuable assets: This solution includes Data Management Engine (DME), a one-stop knowledge generation tool chain (eDataMate), data fabric, and the AI storage solutions OceanStor A800 and OceanStor A310. It makes AI training data globally visible, manageable, and available, and improves data collection, preprocessing, and training efficiency. In particular, OceanStor A800, a next-gen high-performance NAS storage solution, is a robust AI storage power foundation with a data and control plane separation architecture, the OceanFS high-performance parallel file system, flexible bidirectional expansion, and other capabilities, all designed to support real-time hyper-cluster scheduling.
  • All-scenario data protection solution for data production, backup, and archiving that boosts the resilience of data assets: This solution uses two layers of collaborative deployment. The first layer is production-backup collaboration, backing massive numbers of small files up 90% faster than conventional solutions. It also supports real-time native-format data analytics. Then is the backup-archive collaboration. Its post-deduplication tiering feature reduces bandwidth consumption by 80%. Additionally, Huawei launched the OceanProtect E8000 and X9000 data backup appliance solutions and next-gen OceanStor Arctic magneto-electric storage solution that is designed for warm and cold data at the event. The magneto-electric storage solution is predicted to reduce TCO by 20% than tapes and power consumption by 90% than HDDs.
  • DCS full-stack data center solution for helping carriers achieve higher IT service efficiency and agility: This full-stack solution, built on virtualization and containers, covers data collection, storage, computing, management, and usage, delivering comprehensive infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).

Dr. Zhou said that AI is prompting a data awakening, which is accelerating the data assetization process. Huawei Data Storage will remain committed to providing storage solutions for all scenarios, to help carriers build leading data infrastructure in the AI era.

MWC Barcelona 2024 will be held from February 26 to February 29 in Barcelona, Spain. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stand 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1.

With the 2024 commercial launch of 5.5G, Huawei is collaborating with operators and partners around the world to pursue exciting new innovation in networks, cloud, and intelligence. Together, we will drive 5G business and foster a thriving industry ecosystem, creating a new era for intelligent digital transformation.

Expanded lineup includes new EFS NVMe finishing nodes, revolutionary private cloud technology and powerful enhancements to FLOW asset management, MediaSilo and Screeners.com

BOSTON, MA – February 29, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — EditShare, the technology leader that enables storytellers to create and manage collaborative workflows, is celebrating 20 years of outstanding innovation at the 2024 NAB Show (booth SL8087, Las Vegas Convention Center, 14 – 17 April). It will mark the milestone by unveiling powerful new tools for producers and post facilities, new software and hardware, and the initial integration between FLOW and MediaSilo.

EditShare will be at the NAB Show, Booth SL8087, Las Vegas, from April 14-17 2024 

EditShare has always pushed the boundaries of media engineered storage solutions and will be demonstrating for the first time the new EFS NVMe, which enables creatives to work in demanding media formats such as DPX, OpenEXR, 4K/8K and beyond – all powered by the media aware industry standard file system, EFS. EFS NVMe provides unprecedented throughput, three times greater than the aggregate bandwidth of previous SSD generation servers, making it ideal for users working with VFX and other high bandwidth, high throughput environments.

EditShare completed its merger with Shift Media in September 2023, and at NAB 2024 the company is already unveiling major steps in integration and enhancements. Users of FLOW, the asset and workflow management platform integrated into EditShare’s storage systems, will be able to directly access all of the tools in the MediaSilo video collaboration platform to distribute viewing copies and collate annotations, speeding still further the processes of collaboration and content sign-off.

Within MediaSilo, collaborative creative editorial review improvements will include side-by-side version comparisons, user mentioning and range-based commenting. These advances further the effectiveness of MediaSilo as a review tool during the production and post timeline. To protect content, MediaSilo incorporates visible and forensic watermarking, which dynamically inserts viewer information into the file and is completely customizable including text and images. EditShare also recently released image and document watermarking support in MediaSilo, further bolstering its security capabilities for assets such as scripts, casting shots, and sensitive marketing materials.

Screeners.com, the preferred press screener solution of publicists and content security teams, will see a fresh look unveiled for the reviewer user interface. Publicists will have more branding customization options including in-video logo watermarks, specific color palettes on network pages, and broader options for key art. Reviewers will see an enhanced OTT-style experience with improved content recommendations, watchlists, and expiration notifications.

“From the day, 20 years ago, that EditShare was formed, there has been a tight focus on freeing content creators to exercise their craft, minimizing the need to interact with the technology,” said Tara Montford, Co-Founder and EVP Sales at EditShare. “Thanks to the close relationship we have with our clients, we are able to understand their needs and rapidly develop solutions to meet them.

“I am particularly proud of the way we have integrated the former Shift Media technology into our overall platform and program,” he added. “To be able to unveil really complex interworking just a few months after the merger is impressive. But what is really important is that it makes both EditShare FLOW and MediaSilo even more effective and valuable for our clients.”

Easy-to-Use, Powerful, AI-powered Search Assistant Leverages an Organization’s Most Important Data by Harnessing the Power of Generative AI While Keeping Data Secure and Compliant

SAN JOSE, CA – February 28, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Cohesity, a leader in AI-powered data security and management, today announced Cohesity Gaia, a first-to-market AI-powered enterprise search assistant that brings retrieval augmented generation* (RAG) AI and large language models (LLMs) to high-quality backup data within Cohesity environments. Cohesity Gaia will be made generally available on March 15. The conversational AI assistant enables users to ask questions and receive answers by accessing and analyzing their vast pools of enterprise data. When coupled with the Cohesity Data Cloud, these AI advancements transform data into knowledge and can help accelerate the goals of an organization while keeping data secure and compliant. Cohesity has announced plans with the three largest public cloud providers to bring their LLM services to Cohesity Gaia.

The underlying architecture of Cohesity Data Cloud manages and secures data with a unique blend of performance, extensibility, and scale. Cohesity Gaia extends the value proposition of Cohesity Data Cloud even further:

  • By building a RAG AI solution on Cohesity’s multicloud platform, Cohesity will be able to seamlessly provide RAG AI conversational search experiences across cloud and hybrid environments that will allow enterprises to gain deeper insights into their data and make informed decisions in the future, no matter where their stored data resides.
  • Cohesity maintains a fully indexed backup of all files, across all workloads, and at all points in time. This robust capability supports the creation of AI-ready indexes for rapid conversational search and responses, providing enterprises with quick and accurate results. Initially, Cohesity will support Microsoft 365 and OneDrive data and will expand to more workloads over time.
  • The unique architecture of Cohesity Gaia ensures that all indexed data is immediately available for reading without the need for backups to be reconstructed. This allows the Cohesity Data Cloud to function like a data lake, providing businesses with real-time access to their data for analysis and decision-making.
  • The Cohesity Data Cloud employs granular, role-based access controls and zero-trust security principles, ensuring that only authorized users and models have access to the necessary data. This not only protects sensitive information but also helps enterprises maintain compliance with various regulatory requirements.

Enterprises looking to utilize LLMs often face several challenges. Developers must first create more copies of data, thereby increasing the threat footprint for an attack. What’s more, the data may be incomplete or dated. Finally, this approach requires additional time and resources, and puts an added burden on the system’s performance. Cohesity Gaia overcomes these challenges by integrating AI capabilities within a customer’s backup environment.

Cohesity Gaia helps organizations make better, faster decisions across a myriad of use cases, such as:

  • To assess an organization’s level of cyber resilience.
  • To quickly perform financial and compliance audit checks.
  • To answer complex legal questions.
  • To serve as a knowledge base to train new employees.

“Enterprises are excited to harness the power of generative AI but have faced several challenges gaining insights into secondary data, including backup, archived and vaulted data – because every approach requires re-hydrating the data, and painfully waiting weeks for the data to be available for analytics and insights. Cohesity Gaia dramatically simplifies this process with our patent-pending approach using Retrieval Augmented Generation,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO and President, Cohesity. “With Cohesity Gaia, for the first time in our industry, companies will be able to leverage generative AI to query their data in a virtually seamless way. Our approach delivers rapid, insightful results without the drawbacks of more manual and risky approaches. In short, it turns data into knowledge within seconds and minutes.”

“We are an international materials research and manufacturing company, with research centers in many locations, and our researchers speak different languages,” said Ryan Reed, head of IT Products and Services, JSR Corporation. “We want to be able to use generative AI to quickly discover if work done at one location might apply to other projects. Cohesity Gaia allows us to query our rich store of research data and quickly find relevant work. It will also allow our researchers to use their native language to query the system. This could prove incredibly valuable in accelerating the rate of our research and discovery.”

At the core of Cohesity AI technologies is Cohesity Turing, a patent-pending collection of AI capabilities and technologies integrated into Cohesity’s multicloud data management and security platform, that provide operational and data insights. The foundation of these AI innovations is the concept of “responsible AI,” with capabilities and frameworks that enable customers to introduce AI to backup data securely and safely at scale. All Cohesity Turing solutions adhere to these responsible AI principles:

  • Transparency: Protect access to the data with role-based access controls. Promote transparency and accountability around access and policies.
  • Governance: Ensure the security and privacy of data used by AI models and the workforce—so the right data is exposed only to the right people (and models) with the right privileges.
  • Access: Integrate indexed and searchable data securely and easily while ensuring data is immutable and resilient.

“It is important to understand that Cohesity Gaia does not retrieve data like a search engine; it answers questions,” said Greg Statton, office of the CTO – Data & AI, Cohesity. ”For example, if you notice a rise in costs in a region, typically, you would search for dozens of invoices, review and compare them, and see if you can discover the reason for the cost increases. It could take hours, days, or weeks to resolve. With Cohesity Gaia, you simply ask, ‘Why have costs increased in the region?’, and Cohesity Gaia will pull the relevant data from your stored data, analyze it, and return an answer to your question. It’s that simple.”

“Cohesity is the first data security and management vendor to bring the power of AI search to enterprises with the Cohesity Gaia AI search assistant. Gaia leverages generative AI with the latest RAG enhancements to enable conversational search across secondary protected data,” said Russ Fellows, vice president, The Futurum Group Labs. “Gaia enables companies to quickly leverage their existing stored data with the power of generative AI, while preserving data security and compliance. With Cohesity Gaia, customers can quickly turn data into insights, without the complexity of creating an AI application themself, or worrying about their data privacy and security.”

Cohesity Gaia Virtual Event at 10 AM, PT, February 28th.

Please attend this virtual event to learn more about Cohesity Gaia, the industry’s first generative AI-powered conversational search assistant. Participants include:

  • Major AI product advancements from Greg Statton, Office of the CTOCohesity.
  • Insights from Ryan Reed, head of IT, JSR Corporation, about the AI functionality he’s most excited about.
  • An executive conversation with Manuvir Das, VP, of Enterprise Computing at NVIDIAMarco Casalaina, VP of Products, Azure AI at Microsoft; and Sanjay Poonen, CEO and President at Cohesity about their vision for generative AI and the pivotal role of an enterprise AI platform.
  • live demo showing AI’s value to your data and analysis.

2024 Wasabi Global Cloud Storage Index predicts higher cloud storage growth to support IT infrastructure and business modernization

  • 53% of respondents are exceeding cloud storage budget, in part because they are using more capacity than they planned (42%) and are migrating more apps and data to the cloud than planned (45%)
  • AI/ML applications and services adopted or planning to adopt by almost all organizations (99%), with specific focus on accelerating product innovation and operational efficiencies

BOSTON, MA – February 28, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Organizations worldwide are increasing public cloud storage use and budgets to accelerate innovation. According to the 2024 Wasabi Global Cloud Storage Index, an astounding 93% of organizations plan to grow their public cloud storage capacity in 2024. This rate of capacity increase is up 9 points from last year’s survey (which indicated 84% expected an increase). Commissioned by Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, and conducted by Vanson Bourne, the Wasabi Global Cloud Storage Index uncovers the changing attitudes toward public cloud storage adoption, the factors that influence storage buying decisions, and the market’s top priorities when it comes to budget, capacity, vendor selection, billing, features and satisfaction.

Cloud storage budgets increase as more enterprises move to the cloud, but the market still suffers from expensive public cloud storage fees

  • More than half of respondents say they exceeded their budgeted spend on public cloud storage. The main reasons for budget excess include using more storage than they planned (42%) and migrating more apps and data to the cloud than planned (45%)
  • 90% of respondents expect their cloud storage budgets to increase in 2024, up from 84% in 2023, in part due to new data security, backup, and recovery requirements, with 95% of C-level respondents saying they expect cloud storage budgets to increase in 2024
  • On average, 47% of cloud storage billing is allocated to data and usage fees (including API calls, operations, egress, retrieval, etc.), this finding aligns with last year’s results, indicating that organizations continue to struggle with complex and material fee charges
  • 53% of respondents exceeded budgeted spend for cloud object storage in 2023, 2 points higher than the previous year’s average (52%)
  • 72% of new cloud storage adopters, those who purchased services in 2022 and 2023, exceeded budget spend, and interestingly, these respondents cited high storage usage and growth, unanticipated egress fees and API call fees, as the three main reasons they exceeded budget

“Results from this year’s Wasabi Global Cloud Storage Index show cloud storage use isn’t slowing down, in fact, many organizations are asking more of their cloud storage services; improved security, low-latency storage for frequently accessed data, and tools to improve data management,” said Andrew Smith, senior manager of strategy and market intelligence at Wasabi Technologies, and a former IDC analyst. “The 2024 Cloud Storage Index also assessed cloud storage adoption, deployment and challenges associated with emerging AI/ML workloads, showing that while nearly all organizations are planning to adopt or are already implementing AI/ML apps and services, they are taking a low-risk approach by applying new technology to internal operations first. Also, coming as no surprise, Generative AI leads the AI/ML workload adoption pack with 49% of enterprises already implementing, or planning to implement this technology at their organization.”

Over forty percent of respondents identify their organization as “cloud-first” when it comes to IT services adoption, and much of their stored data is considered “hot”

  • The number of respondents self-identifying as “cloud-first” in 2024 (42%) – increased from 2023, illustrating a continued shift towards cloud IT services adoption when it comes to infrastructure solutions, including storage.
  • Respondents ranked their cloud object storage performance requirements on a scale of “cold” to “hot.” Only 18% of cloud object storage data, on average, sits within the “cold” category. The remaining 82% of cloud object storage is classified as more active data (I.e., hot, warm, or cool). This allocation is indicative of the growing applicability of object storage across a wide range of enterprise applications; as well as enterprise requirements to do more with their data

“The 2024 Global Cloud Storage Index shows organizations are vastly underestimating the cost of egress and API call fees,” said David Friend, Co-Founder and CEO, Wasabi Technologies. “Our findings show almost half of the average cloud storage bill is attributed to various data access and usage fees. We believe this unfavorable mix practically doubles total cloud storage costs. Even more concerning is the impact of these fee structures as nearly every organization expects to store and do more with their data. There is evidence that some of this growth is being driven by the need to train AI models.”

AI/ML workload adoption will catalyze infrastructure modernization to accommodate data sprawl across new environments

  • 99% of respondents plan to adopt, or are already implementing AI/ML solutions and services in 2024
  • 49% of respondents say AI/ML workload adoption will create new challenges storing data across a wider range of locations (e.g., edge, core, and cloud)
  • Current or planned AI workload adoption is dominated by Generative AI (49% of respondents), followed by AI/ML solutions for security and compliance (45%) and product design (39%)
  • This year the Cloud Storage Index asked specifically about storage-related concerns and challenges associated with AI/ML solution adoption; and 97% of respondents believe their organization has storage-related concerns associated with AI/ML
  • The top three concerns facing enterprises include: requirements to store data across a wider range of locations (49%); new or increased data movement/migration requirements, including hybrid cloud and multicloud (44%); and the need for enhanced data security and compliance capabilities (43%)

Methodology
Wasabi commissioned independent market research agency Vanson Bourne to conduct research into cloud storage. The study surveyed 1,200 IT decision makers who had at least some involvement in or responsibility for public cloud storage purchases in their organization. The research took place in November and December 2023, and included organizations with more than 100 employees across all public and private sectors. All interviews were conducted using a rigorous multi-level screening process to ensure that only suitable candidates were given the opportunity to participate.

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Feb. 27, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Keepit, a global leader in cloud backup and recovery solutions, today signaled its commitment to the UK market, announcing the opening of a UK headquarters in the City of London and the expansion of its UK team, led by industry veteran Jerry Mumford, VP for UK, I, and MEA. Launched in 2007 and built exclusively for SaaS applications, Keepit is the only vendor-independent cloud dedicated to SaaS data protection.

This announcement builds on a recent $40 million refinancing package from HSBC Innovation Banking and launch of the Keepit Partner Network as the company evolves to a partner-only strategy. Over the past three years, Keepit has seen 100% YOY growth in the UK and is on target to repeat this in 2024. The opening of a local office highlights the company’s plans to expand its local market share and cements its commitment to providing its UK customers with local support.

“Establishing a stronger base in the UK is an important step for Keepit: an opportunity to build on the foundations we already have here, and grow our partner ecosystem and customer base,” said Jerry Mumford, Keepit VP for UK, I and MEA. “The UK market is significant, with a robust IT infrastructure and high levels of new technology adoption. But that means it is also a key target for cybercriminals and of course data loss can seriously impact business continuity. Our commitment to vendor independence, broad service coverage, fast recovery times, and dedication to security, will mean that more UK organizations will have the resilience to keep their businesses running, even when disaster strikes.”

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, with offices in the US, Germany, and now the UK, Keepit counts The National Gallery and Oxford University Innovation Ltd among its UK customers.

Key benefits of the Keepit Platform include:

  • Data protection for all major SaaS applications in a single platform, including Azure DevOps, Dynamics 365, Entra ID (formerly Azure AD), Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, Power Platform, Salesforce, and Zendesk
  • Vendor-independent cloud: Keepit ensures backup data is stored separately from the production data, on its independent cloud, meaning data is always accessible even if a SaaS vendor has downtime.
  • Data sovereignty: with six isolated data center regions? (one of which is in the UK), Keepit’s customers can always be 100% certain that they can customize their backups to comply with local regulatory requirements.
  • Instant recovery: fast, easy, and granular search and restore features means data can be located, previewed, and retrieved with just a few clicks.
  • Certified, cloud-native design: Keepit is ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISAE 3402-II certified. Unique security and ransomware protection keeps data available and immutable by default.
  • Predictable costs: customers pay one flat fee per user which includes unlimited data storage, ingress/egress, and retention.
  • Simple and intuitive software: the simple interface and API-first architecture of the Keepit Platform requires no training, and can easily be integrated into existing systems, meaning customers can get up and running in minutes.

Plus all Keepit’s data centres in the Americas and EMEA are powered by 100% renewable energy to limit their environmental impact and help its customers meet sustainability targets. Keepit reached this important green energy milestone ahead of other cloud-based backup vendors.

One of Keepit’s UK customers is the National Gallery, which protects its Microsoft365 data within the UK at two separate data centres to meet compliance regulations. Keepit’s ease-of-use, the quick initial set-up, and the competitive price appealed to the IT team. National Gallery infrastructure manager James Mitchell said “during our tender process, it was evident that Keepit offered the best price point and simplest solution – accessing your backup is fast and easy, just the way it should be.”

Meet with Keepit at:

  • Tech Show, London, March 6-7. Visit Keepit in hall N1 – N13, at stand S122.
  • Infosec, London, June 4-6

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Feb 27, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Cloudian today announced the release of a new open-source software contribution that integrates PyTorch, the popular machine learning (ML) library, with local data lakes running on Cloudian HyperStore S3-compatible object storage. This breakthrough simplifies the machine learning workflow and reduces costs by allowing data scientists and AI developers to run ML on data resident in local Cloudian object storage, without the need to move and stage the data into another system. The ML tasks can also run on local compute resources such as AWS Outposts and Local Zones.

AWS Outposts and Local Zones users can now employ Python and machine learning libraries to analyze data within a local Cloudian HyperStore S3-compatible storage system without the cumbersome step of moving data to a separate staging area, streamlining the data processing pipeline and significantly accelerating the machine learning workflow. Cloudian is a certified partner for AWS Outposts and Local Zones, and is offered through the AWS Marketplace.

This open-source contribution bridges the gap between distributed S3-compatible object storage systems and machine learning compute platforms, eliminating the dependency on a dedicated parallel file system for machine learning workflows. By enabling direct access to a cost-effective, scalable data repository, Cloudian is simplifying the machine learning process, reducing both complexity and costs associated with data analysis.

Key Benefits of this development include:

  1. Simplified Workflow: Eliminates the need for data staging, thus simplifying the workflow and reducing the cost of real-time analysis and model training.
  2. Seamless Integration: Allows direct use of PyTorch with Cloudian HyperStore, enabling local S3-compatible data storage.
  3. Local Performance: Run machine learning models locally with AWS Outposts and Local Zones for low latency and high-speed access to data.

“We are excited to offer the machine learning community a tool that integrates two of their most important needs: the computational power of PyTorch and the storage flexibility of Cloudian S3-compatible systems,” said Jon Toor, Chief Marketing Officer of Cloudian. “By connecting these platforms, we are enabling a more efficient and streamlined approach to machine learning.”

Cloudian contributed enhancements to AWS Labs’ open-source S3-Connector-for-PyTorch. The enhancements enable PyTorch ML algorithms to access data in Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage system via the AWS S3 API. The enhanced S3 connector is available from the GitHub repositories of AWS Labs and Cloudian.

The benefits of cloud storage are leading to widespread industry adoption

Mountain View, CA – February 27, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry within the Egnyte ecosystem is experiencing a significant evolution in its data management landscape, according to the 2024 AEC Data Insights Report from Egnyte. The report highlights the dynamic shifts Egnyte is seeing in data storage, security, and collaborative practices adopted by industry professionals.

This year’s trends report highlights the exponential growth in the AEC industry’s transition from local storage to cloud storage and collaboration solutions. The data storage requirements of the companies surveyed grew at an average compounded annual growth rate of 50.3%. This rapid growth trend began during the pandemic, but as companies started to see the benefits of the cloud, growth has maintained that pace. Transitioning to the cloud allows companies to leverage technology integrations, artificial intelligence, and real-time collaboration and meet strict regulatory requirements, such as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Compliance (CMMC) in the United States and the Building Safety Act in the United Kingdom.

The 2024 Data Insights Report dives into the AEC industry’s data usage trends to better understand how companies engage with data in Egnyte’s cloud.

Some of the key highlights include:

  • A Surge in Active Collaboration: Users across all segments increase active collaboration by 10.5x as they become familiar with cloud collaboration. However, the construction industry leads the category by far with a 29x increase in active collaboration over time.
  • Compounding Data Storage Growth: Data storage requirements have risen from an average of 3.34 terabytes in 2018 to 25.64 terabytes in 2023, representing a compound annual growth rate of 50.3%.
  • High-Severity Governance Issues: The construction sector accounts for 60% of recurring IT issues in the AEC industry that could harm a company’s infrastructure or productivity, likely due to the larger number of stakeholders and possibly to less stringent governance protocols.

“The insights we gleaned from this year’s report reflect the conversations we have with AEC firms on a daily basis. Companies are relying more heavily on digital collaboration to get the job done – a trend that shows no signs of slowing down,” said Ronen Vengosh, senior vice president of Industry Solutions at Egnyte. “Their increased reliance on cloud collaboration and file storage coupled with the high frequency of cybersecurity threats these firms encounter highlights the need for secure, reliable cloud collaboration solutions.”

Egnyte’s Data Insights Report examines the data usage patterns of over 4,000 companies across the AEC industry to gain valuable insights into how companies rely on cloud collaboration now and anticipate how those needs will evolve. Findings are based on data from Egnyte’s customer base, which spans firms representing every stage of the AEC project lifecycle.

Record Revenue Growth Fueled By Enterprise Customer Adoption

Santa Clara, CA – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Clumio, a leader in data backup and recovery for public cloud, today announced that it has secured $75M in a Series D funding round led by Sutter Hill Ventures, along with participation from existing investors Index Ventures and Altimeter Capital, and new investor NewView Capital. The investment will be used to accelerate the company’s innovation and go-to-market in radically simplifying backup and recovery for public cloud customers. Clumio has now raised a total of $261 million.

“Few markets are as big as backup and recovery,” said Mike Speiser of Sutter Hill Ventures. “While many legacy vendors offer products for on-premise data protection, backup and recovery at public cloud scale is a significant technical challenge that Clumio is uniquely positioned to solve.”

Clumio also announced a 4X growth in annual recurring revenue (ARR) in 2023, fueled by accelerated enterprise customer acquisition—software powerhouse Atlassian, legal and risk management leader LexisNexis, and recently public fast-casual restaurant chain Cava to name a few. Clumio is now well into double-figures in millions of dollars in annual recurring revenue (ARR), with over 100 petabytes (PB) of cloud data protected for hundreds of customers, a net promoter score (NPS) of 86, and a 5-star rating on the AWS Marketplace.

“Customers have reached a point of maturity in the public cloud where backup and recovery of their critical data is now a top priority,” said Poojan Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Clumio. “It is foundational to their operational resilience, ransomware recovery, and regulatory compliance needs. Because traditional backup and recovery vendors are not architected for public cloud applications, Clumio is seeing a deluge of demand across cloud databases, data lakes, and high-performance storage. We will use our Series D funding to accelerate our momentum in these areas, across the major cloud providers.”

“Clumio is doing to enterprise backup and recovery what Snowflake did to enterprise data warehousing,” said Rick Underwood, Chief Revenue Officer at Clumio. “With the explosion of cloud data, customers need a backup solution natively built in the cloud that can leverage and scale with their other cloud services. I witnessed this shift from bolt-on, retrofitted deployments towards hands-off, consumption-based solutions first-hand during my tenure at Snowflake, when the company grew its revenue 30X in five years. I am excited to lead Clumio on a similar revenue trajectory.”

When it comes to public cloud backup and recovery, the majority of enterprises today rely on rudimentary tools like snapshots and replicas. However, these lack necessary optimizations, observability, and security for enterprise-level operations, quickly becoming complex and expensive to manage. Clumio—the only serverless backup solution—overcomes these challenges with an autonomous, default-air gapped, and immutable platform that proactively monitors compliance and reduces cost.

“Clumio helped us automate the resilience of Jira Cloud,” said Alex Grach, Head of Engineering, Core Engineering Services at Atlassian. “Clumio was the only solution that met our needs for high-fidelity backup and restore at scale, both in terms of data volume as well as change-rate. It has also been simple to implement and easy to use.”

In addition to the above highlights, Clumio continued its product innovation with the general availability of S3 Instant Access, a new paradigm for data recovery without having to perform a restore operation. In the incident of a disruption, Amazon S3 customers use this feature to keep their critical applications up and running while a full recovery takes place in parallel. For its streak of innovation and momentum in 2023, Clumio was awarded InfoWorld Technology of the Year in the Cloud Compliance and Governance category.

Based on interviews to better understand the return on investment of Keepit customers, the study found that for a composite organization implementation of Keepit’s solutions significantly alleviated the burden on overextended IT teams by offering multiple resource-saving benefits. It reduced the impact of a ransomware attack by minimizing downtime, saved SaaS licensing expenses, enabled the organization to avoid the costs associated with on-premises backup solutions, and increased the time efficiency of IT administrators through its rapid restore capabilities, streamlining their workflow. These advantages collectively contributed to a more productive and cost-effective IT operation.

Quick and efficient data recovery saves time and money
“Quick and efficient data recovery has a direct correlation with an organization’s financial health,” states Craig Bumpus, Chief Revenue Officer for Keepit. “The TEI study reveals our clients experienced a 90% faster recovery time for vital users, affirming for us the value of Keepit’s solution. This advantage extends beyond IT efficiency to direct financial savings and shields against operational and compliance risks.”

The study highlights significant advantages, with three-year, risk-adjusted present values savings across multiple benefits:

  • Faster and more accurate recovery from a ransomware attack with a savings of $819,100.
  • Reduced SaaS licensing costs by $351,400.
  • On-premises backup cost avoidance of $134,000.
  • SaaS user productivity impact of $21,400.

Impact of ransomware attacks are reduced
The return on investment for Keepit customers who suffer a ransomware attack is substantial – the granularity, precision and speed with which organizations can recover their backed-up data in itself saves IT resources and keeps downtime to an absolute minimum. Keepit believes the ROI is also a result of the ability, in the event of a ransomware attack, for organizations to refuse to pay the ransom because they have access to their data regardless, without suffering massive operational disruptions.

“The word essential is not an exaggeration in this context. If you have no backup of your data, then you are a threatened species,” stated a senior consultant, a Keepit nonprofit organization customer in the study.

“It’s important to have the confidence to have all data available all the time. If something happens, from small instances to big ones, we are able to restore data,” said a senior system manager from an automotive association quoted in the study.

Following the results of this study, Keepit developed and is now introducing a Return On Investment calculator, designed to provide users with tailored insights into the financial benefits of Keepit’s solutions for their specific organizational needs.

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Acronis, a leading provider of cyber protection, is proud to introduce the latest release of its flagship product – Acronis Cyber Protect 16. Acronis Cyber Protect delivers robust protection against cyber threats and unparalleled backup and recovery capabilities. This latest version establishes a new benchmark in easy and fast recovery after cyberattacks or data loss, especially for modern multi-site organizations.

Essential Data Intelligence and Fit for AI Framework Organizes, Curates, and Enables Business Critical Insights for Enterprises

Boston, MA – February 21, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Nasuni, a leading hybrid cloud storage solution, today announced Nasuni IQ: data intelligence capabilities to help enterprises manage, assess, and prepare their unstructured data environment for artificial intelligence (AI). With Nasuni IQ, businesses can quickly monitor usage patterns, make proactive data management decisions, and better enable the delivery of intelligent insights.

As the volume of unstructured data continues to grow in the enterprise, a comprehensive data management strategy has become a top concern for businesses looking to leverage AI. According to Gartner, large enterprises will triple their unstructured data capacity by 2028. Since unstructured data is where much of the enterprise’s intellectual property is housed, unlocking its potential is critical. For many companies, this data has been forgotten in legacy storage silos.

The Nasuni File Data Platform supports the next generation of data initiatives by consolidating unstructured data within a single global namespace. Additionally, Nasuni can help companies move off their legacy NAS infrastructure quickly and efficiently with its Professional Services offerings. With the addition of Nasuni IQ, platform users gain access to the following key features:

  • Proactive Data Management: Anticipate storage needs, identify potential bottlenecks, and implement data management policies to ensure resources are allocated effectively.
  • Data Curation for AI: Can be used as an additional tool to help curate unstructured data to support advanced analytics and AI initiatives.

“As more businesses turn to AI and advanced analytics for a competitive edge, understanding and managing the data feeding those tools will be the deciding factor in their success,” said Russ Kennedy, Chief Product Officer, Nasuni. “Nasuni’s Data Platform consolidates silos of data in a cloud object store and then provides enterprises with the visibility and insight to leverage their data for the next generation of intelligence tools.”

Nasuni IQ will be delivered as part of the core Nasuni File Data Platform, and supports Nasuni’s overall Fit for AI framework designed to help customers bring their data strategy in line with being ready for AI use-cases. Nasuni IQ enables customers to quickly take advantage of a number of important capabilities, including:

  • Fit for AI Assessment: Evaluate an organization’s data landscape, understand consumption patterns, and begin ensuring the data is AI-ready.
  • File Usage Analytics: Track usage and collaboration patterns across users, departments, file types, volumes, and more. Gain visibility to optimize storage, plan capacity, and facilitate capacity-based chargeback.
  • Health Monitoring: Monitor system component metrics to proactively identify resource contention and capacity limits so administrators can take preventative measures.
  • Forensic Capabilities: Perform historical analysis of file, user, or application activity when troubleshooting issues or investigating information security events.
  • Automated Reporting: Leverage prebuilt reports and dashboards that deliver actionable intelligence to technical and business users and support chargeback reporting.

“The rapid emergence of AI technology is driving organizations to evaluate how they can use unstructured data to their advantage,” said Scott Sinclair, Practice Director of Cloud, Infrastructure, and DevOps at ESG. “Nasuni IQ is a powerful new solution that aids data discovery and enables organizations to do the critical curation that should be done before exposing business data to AI services and language models. The Nasuni File Data Platform allows organizations to consolidate previously disparate data silos into a single namespace which radically simplifies management, and Nasuni IQ will further optimize that storage resource for secure, effective data preparation for AI-driven insights.”

“Nasuni IQ has become a valuable tool for our file data oversight,” said Rob Ruggiero, Global Infrastructure Architect at SGSCO. “With its intuitive features, we effortlessly track the most active users, monitor dynamic directories, and gain valuable insights into file interactions. The ability to identify hotspots and trace file movements has enhanced our monitoring capabilities, enabling us to visualize our data collaboration patterns. Nasuni IQ stands out as a reliable ally for those seeking a practical boost in file share data monitoring efficiency.”
