This week in Gestalt News, we were live from Pure Accelerate for the Gestalt IT Rundown and Joep Piscaer considered the unconscious choice for multi-cloud. Plus articles on stopping security silos, a VMworld Cloud roundtable discussion, the latest on IBM data protection, and more!
Harnessing the power of multi-cloud for recovery is essential to meeting increasingly strict data compliance rules, combating the prevalence of ransomware, and maintaining business continuity. Commvault’s Penny Gralewski and Keith Townsend recently discussed what this new era of data protection looks like as part of Commvault’s webinar series. Learn more and check on the on-demand webinar!
Google Cloud’s recent outage offers system and application architects a teachable moment to illustrate how to better prepare your organization for such failures.
Not sure where to begin when thinking about protecting your data across multiple clouds and services? Ned Bellavance shares his “wish list” of what his perfect solution would include. Be sure to hear even more in Ned’s recent webinar with Commvault, Managing Multi-Cloud Data Protection.
On this episode, the roundtable discusses if the framing of multi-cloud as an inevitable IT outcome is really accurate. Is multi-cloud just something being pushed by analysts and vendors with solutions to sell? If so, will it ultimately be a fad? They further discuss what they mean when they say multi-cloud, which further clarifies the premise.
As interest in hybrid and mutli-cloud operation models increases in the enterprise, a recurring theme has been emerging. Consistency is key. Datrium wants to provide the consistency that allows enterprise customers to select the public cloud of their choice and maintain the same tools and knowledge. They are likely betting on VMware being the common platform across multiple clouds and that the ability for enterprises to move their applications without refactoring will be the preferred path to the cloud for many enterprise customers.
Multi-Cloud’s biggest roadblock is data gravity. Faction’s multi-cloud storage service help overcome this obstacle.
The benefits and tradeoffs of the cloud are well known in IT. Public cloud provides allow organizations to quickly spin up compute or storage resources, but come with hidden costs. When looking at a multi-cloud strategy, these costs can quickly snowball. INFINIDAT’s recently released Neutrix Cloud offers something different, delivering all of the capabilities of an enterprise-grade InfiniBox storage system for Tier 1 applications, bundled in a cloud consumption model that helps organizations achieve cost efficiencies while maintaining sovereignty on their data.
With HyperFile, Cloudian added the ability to address file and object in a single name space. With HyperStore 7, they now add multi-cloud into the mix.
