Commvault | Ransomware

Posted by Sara Jones on 21-Jul-2020 16:03:13

Win the battle against Ransomware

The Ransomware doctor will see you now

Ransomware knows no boundaries. It can strike any of your customers, regardless of company size or location. And the stakes are higher than ever — lost revenue, data leaks, bad publicity, skyrocketing costs. Ransomware even drives companies out of business. Your customers need to Be Ready before they get hit.

We all hear the news – ransomware attacks are an unfortunate part of cyber life. To make matters worse, business is so good for these criminals, they’re developing more and more sophisticated threats. This results in organizations losing access to their data, potentially putting their entire business at risk. These poorly-protected organizations are often forced to pay the ransom – with the “hope” that their data is actually released – or attempt an ad hoc recovery effort without any guarantee of reliable recovery. To maintain access to your critical data, consider these four best practices to protect and recover from ransomware attacks with confidence.

More Cloud. Less Cost. | Spot by NetApp

Posted by Sara Jones on 17-Jul-2020 11:28:32

Spot by NetApp establishes leadership in application-driven infrastructure

Spot by NetApp

NetApp, the leader in cloud data services, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Spot, a leader in compute management and cost optimization in the public clouds.

Spot by NetApp® delivers application-driven infrastructures (ADIs), cloud infrastructures that use analytics and machine learning to continuously adapt to the needs of applications, to help drive cloud resource optimization in real time, for both compute and storage. ADIs automatically deliver the availability, performance, and capacity that applications need at the lowest cost, accelerating the deployment and innovation of applications. ADIs help application teams shorten development lifecycles and run more applications in their choice of cloud. Customers can save up to 90% of their compute and storage infrastructure expenses, which typically make up 70% of total cloud spending, while maintaining SLAs and SLOs.

"Together, we are extending NetApp's vision for helping customers unlock the best of cloud," said Anthony Lye, senior vice president and general manager of NetApp's Public Cloud Services business unit. "With Spot by NetApp, we will enable customers to get more out of their cloud investment to gain competitive advantage and accelerate their business success."

"Cloud infrastructure gives application developers the ability to develop and deploy applications faster by providing resources almost instantly at any time," said Amiram Shachar, CEO and cofounder of Spot. "We are excited to join NetApp in pursuit of the shared vision to help application owners embrace and take advantage of the full power of the cloud."

Spot by NetApp offers a portfolio of compute and storage services that monitor and analyze the needs of applications and automatically optimize cloud resources to meet those needs. Customers will be able to:

  • Make reliable and greater use of cloud excess compute capacity (aka spot instances) and save up to 90% of compute and storage costs, which typically make up 70% of cloud spend.
  • Use compression, dedup and tiering technology to provide dramatic costs saving, up to 60% less than standard cloud storage
  • Provide full value out of customers’ cloud reserved capacity
  • Integrated, actionable approach to managing cloud spend
  • Continuously monitor, analyze and predict applications' resource needs.
  • Proactively optimize cloud infrastructure to meet business and application demands.
  • Automatically scale and adapt to deliver optimized capacity and performance.
