  • A Backup is not an Archive … But, a Cloud Archive can be an Effective Backup

    With the continuing explosion of data piling up across organizations around the world, many are turning to the cloud as an economical way to keep pace with the vast amounts of data they must store, manage, and share. Eventually, much of this data is archived for regulatory, legal, and business reasons while all of it is backed up due to disaster recovery practices.

    The Journaling function in “on premise” Microsoft Exchange email systems was originally developed back in the late 1990s for financial services organizations to meet SEC requirements.  The main requirement consisted of capturing broker/dealer communications (emails) immediately, ensuring those emails could not have been altered or deleted before they were stored on immutable storage (W...

  • Too Big to Move?

    Undoubtedly you have heard about the new low cost public cloud storage from Amazon, Microsoft and Google.  New terms such as cool, cold, Nearline, coldline, and glacier are just a sample of the new brands being marketed.  To better understand these new brands, I thought it would be helpful to review and compare each brand and make note of its preferred use case.
