Disaster recovery can be a stressful activity. Druva has managed to come up with a way of recovering in the cloud that doesn’t need to be complicated, nor does it need to be time-consuming. Architect and Blogger, Dan Frith, explores Druva’s Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaas) offering.
Dan Frith examines how the cloud has changed the way we consume data and how we need to re-align our data protection strategy.
In this Tech Talk, Dan Frith discusses data protection for data stored in SaaS platforms.
It would be great if all our applications were cloud native to get the best cost, resilency, and architecture overall. But enterprises don’t move that quickly. The cloud should offer services that work for existing applications that organizations want to get out of the data center but aren’t going to refactor any time soon. The roundtable discusses the merits and why this isn’t happening right now.

In this post, Dan Frith looks at Pure Storage’s Data-centric Architecture in their newly announced range of FlashArray //X products. These take advantage of NVMe to build a common storage platform that can be used by both traditional and modern applications. He also shows how Pure provides an easy upgrade path for existing customers to take advantage of this architecture.
Persistent storage is still a developing story with containers. It’s still a bit of the Wild West, there’s no consensus on how the problem will be solved. Docker took some steps to address this down the road with the acquisition of Infinit in 2016. But StorageOS has been at this for a little while, and have put together a solution that’s cloud-native and well thought out.
This week, our IT Origins series interviewed Dan Frith. We discussed how he moved from the helpdesk through his IT career, enumerated the worst trends in IT, and gave some love to data protection. Be sure to check out the full interview!
