It has been a busy end of 2012 indeed. Last November and December, a few of my colleagues and I represented the Storage and Availability Management team at the back-to-back NetApp Insight conferences in Las Vegas, Dublin and Macau. At this technically-oriented conference,we promoted our latest product partnership with NetApp, specifically for:

(1) Dynamic Multi-Pathing for VMware (vDMP)- provides performance, availability and visibility for block-attached storage for VMware ESX.

(2) Symantec Data Insight- helps customers improve data governance through data owner identification and visibility into data usage and access permissions.

Through conversations with NetApp's partners and product management employees from around the world, it is evident that there is a big opportunity for vDMP and Data Insight integrated with NetApp storage systems.

Besides from discussions about recent product launches at NetApp and key partnerships formed, some keynote...

Data is the foundation of information; information leads to knowledge, and knowledge is power.  There can be little disagreement that data then has value.  Digital data has become the new world currency and protecting these valuable assets is a central concern of business continuity management.   Data loss, data unavailability and data corruption will all have an adverse economic impact the organization.  Not only do we need to ensure that data is usable and available but we also need to ensure that it is protected from unauthorized use.  While protecting digital data doesn’t sound particularly challenging; it typically begins with a simple task, make an extra copy.  Making and managing these extra copies, however, remains one of the most common pain points for any organization.        

There are three fundamental aspects of data protection that lead to increasing complexities.

The IDC expects data generated by enterprises to grow by 48% this year and for 90% of that to be unstructured data.  At this rate, demand is far outpacing the reduction in the cost of storage.  With an ever increasing squeeze being put on IT department budgets, how is this problem being tackled?

The issue draws interesting parallels to the energy crisis governments around the world are currently facing, with demands for more energy offset against rising fuel costs and environmental targets.  There are some interesting parallels in the solutions being used by both as well and perhaps a few tips to be learnt.
 

Saying it with a smile

Power boards in the US have been using some well documented psychological principles to reduce consumption rates, with impressive results and best of all - they're incredibly simple to implement. It likely started with an experiment in 2004 conducted by Roberto...

Basel II Accord for International Banking Operational Risk is defined as, “Risk of loss from inadequate or failed internal; processes, people, and systems or external events “.   When Processes, People or Systems fail, whether it be from internal or external events, the losses can be substantial.  As an example, the Ponemon Institute estimates that worldwide organizational are losing over $35 Billion monthly from data center downtime.  Nicholas G. Carr point out in his seminal Harvard Business Review article IT Doesn’t Matter, “today, an IT disruption can paralyze a company’s ability to make products, deliver its services, and connect with its customers, not to mention foul its reputation … even a brief disruption in availability of technology can be devastating.”
