In our first post, I gave an overview of Congruity360’s corporate history and portfolio. The company has an impressive suite of managed services for organizations to leverage, providing vital business needs with a minimum of IT hassle. At Storage Field Day last week, the company zeroed in on one particular offering, one that’s increasingly relevant to modern enterprises: data migration.
At Commvault GO 2017, Stephen Foskett sat down with Congruity360 COO Mark Shirman. They discuss how the company’s engineering talent allows them differentiate in their emerging services around infrastructure business. This builds on their legacy storage reseller business, but has expanded to providing services across the data center. This is all provided by their brand new 200,000 sq ft data center located in Fall River, MA.
If the name Congruity360 isn’t immediately familiar, don’t worry, you haven’t fallen out of the IT loop. The company was established in 2017 after a merger with Congruity and KNJ. Congruity itself was only established in 2016 after a prior merger between Rockland IT and MSDI. All this adds up to a company with a long legacy in data management, but without a lot of name recognition.

Space and time. Kant, Einstein. Long-haul truck drivers, marathon runners, 747 pilots. Kid on her way home from school. Data. Networks. Storage. Security. As Nikki Schnupp heads to Commvault GO 2017, she considers them all.
Commvault has a long legacy for an enterprise IT company, but their GO conference still has that new car smell. Commvault GO 2017 will be their second annual conference, this year moving up from Orlando to Washington, DC. The company has an interesting slate of sessions and speakers lined up for this year.
You might not have heard of Ryussi, but their MoSMB solution is certainly worth your attention. In a world where SAMBA the benefits of legacy and being free, Ryussi makes the case that there’s a market need for a proprietary SMB protocol specifically designed for enterprise NAS vendor needs.
SNIA and hyperscalers are working together on storage standards to better optimize for their particular needs. SNIA’s Mark Carlson recently gave a talk describing how the DePop standard was developed to get around the problem of tail latency seen in these massive scale-out data centers.
