By any measure, Office 365 is a success as millions of Microsoft seats transition from on-premises Exchange to a cloud-based email service as part of Office 365. While Microsoft has been offering hosted email solutions for more than 20 years, they have hit their stride with Office 365, the third major iteration of the company’s foray into hosted/cloud-based email and collaboration.
This white paper discusses the key issues that decision makers need to consider as they evaluate the email, security, and resilience capabilities of Office 365. After reading this analyst perspective completed by Michael Osterman of Osterman Research, we believe you will better understand:
Special considerations related to hybrid Exchange and Office 365 email deployments
The importance of programmatic security efficacy rather than simple functionality
How to ensure business messaging continuity in the context of Office 365 outages
Whether third-party backup/recovery is critical for protecting your infrastr

IT admins tasked with restoring servers or lost data during a disruption are
consumed with a single-minded purpose: successful recovery. But it shouldn’t
take an adverse event to underscore the importance of recovery as part of an
overall backup strategy. This is especially true with large datasets. Before you
consider how you’re going to back up large datasets, first consider how you
may need to recover the data.
Variables abound. Is it critical or non-critical data? A simple file deletion or a
system-wide outage? A physical server running onsite or a virtual one hosted
offsite? These and a handful of other criteria will determine your backup and
disaster recovery (BDR) deployment.
What do we mean by large? A simple question with a not-so-simple answer.
If your total data footprint is 5 TB or more, that’s considered large. But what
kind of data is it? How many actual files are there? How frequently do they
change? How much can they be compressed? It’s likely that two different 5 TB

Backup and recovery have been a constant for organisations over the years, often not seen as glamorous aspects of an IT environment but as solutions that are necessary all the same. Environments have changed over the years and the focal use for backups have changed with them, although your solutions may not have.
Taking a simple off-site backup, whether this be to disk, tape or other removable media, would once have been the last line of defence for data protection. Solutions were reliable and ensured data could be recovered in a timely manner.

The General Data Protection Regulation, is a piece of legislation that was approved and put in to place by the European Parliament in April 2016. As European Law, it will fully take effect after a 2-year transition ending May 25th 2018.
GDPR, replaces the previous Data Protection Directive (DPD), adopted in 1995, and will in the UK, replace and strengthen the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). One of the initial differences between GDPR and DPD, is that GDPR is a regulation not a directive; as a regulation, no additional enabling legislation will have to be passed by governments of member states.
Redstor have the ability to give insight into the data organisations have on their networks, advise on best practice to protect data and then implement strategies around backup, archiving and disaster recovery. Data is searchable through an intuitive console making compliance simple and achievable for all organisations protecting data through the Backup Pro Platform.
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.
On-Demand Managed Hosting ranges from simple Managed Servers with one or two processors to the design of complex computing environments, which typically include multiple servers, storage, networking, security, backup, load balancing, and more.
