Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical

As the volume of unstructured data created and used continues to increase rapidly, organizations are faced with challenges around data storage. In response, many new technologies — specifically objectbased storage, software-defined storage, all-flash arrays, and cloud-based storage services — are experiencing rapid adoption. Yet object-based storage has been limited by the need to rewrite existing file-based applications — a prospect that is costly and requires more manpower than is practical for many organizations.
Cloudian offers both an object storage platform and more recently an enterprise file services product. When deployed together, Cloudian's products are designed to consolidate file and object data into a single repository and can enable organizations to manage environments that span the cloud as well as on-premises.

Today, in the age of information, people are paid for their ideas: to create original knowledge products or add value to existing products. Given their self-reliance, it is not surprising that workers take pride in their outputs—up to half of employees take a portfolio of files with them when they leave.
When employees move on, many feel entitled to the work they’ve created.They presume it is acceptable to transfer work documents to personal computers, removable media, tablets, smartphones or online file sharing apps. Some pilfered data is innocuous and already in the public realm. But some of it is classified. Read this paper to find out how to collect and secure data to protect operations, reputation and continuity when employees leave.

In today’s application driven, cloud agnostic world, many organizations still rely on legacy, multiple point backup and recovery products that consist of backup software, target storage, media and master servers, and cloud gateways, all from different vendors. With slow backups and long recovery times of their existing backup products, organizations are unable to meet their tight business SLAs. Constant forklift upgrades and complex management UIs make it expensive to manage the current backup and recovery environments.
There has to be a simpler, more cost-effective way to keep your data safe. This is the problem that Cohesity is designed to solve, with an entirely new approach to data protection.

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.

Think of a wildfire that quickly spreads as it increases in speed and power. That is what is happening today as data growth increases the volume and management complexity of storage, backup and recovery. Now think of trying to stop that fire with a garden hose. Your traditional backup and recovery process is equally under-equipped to manage and facilitate operations that need more speed, efficiency, scalability and reliability to handle today’s 24/7, always-on environment. Here we examine the benefits of moving from a solution comprised of multiple point products to a holistic data protection platform designed to serve today’s enterprise.
Enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) have some similar challenges in the realm of data protection. Both have to deal with expansive environments—with enterprises protecting distributed offices/geographies, and MSPs protecting many independent subscribers. Both also have been seeing production data storage and secondary protection storage demands rising. Enterprises and MSPs alike should therefore be looking for data protection architectures that have scale-out capabilities built into their core foundation.
The purpose of this white paper is to describe the provider thinking and product elements that must be addressed to change the data center selection process from one that is tactical to one that is strategic in nature.
Businesses need to plan for unforeseen events that can disrupt productivity, impair the customer experience, and possibly even threaten a business’s existence. A disruption every business needs to plan for is any event that destroys valuable data, inhibits access to data, or causes downtime of core applications.
Consider the staggering amount of information your company stores electronically. What if an unforeseen event destroyed all financial records, client contacts, and application data? You wouldn’t be able to send customers accurate invoices. Your marketing efforts might be undermined. You would lack key metrics for measuring quality, profitability, and more. The losses could be staggering.
In every aspect of life, it’s smart to plan for unexpected events. That’s especially true for two plans every business must have: a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan.
By the year 2018, it is expected that over 25% of enterprise customers will adopt web-scale networking to build modern data centers. This rapid adoption can be attributed to businesses' increasing dependence on their data centers, while at the same time facing reduced IT budgets and limited staff to address their growing business needs.
