Today, worrying about backup policies is a thing of the past and should take just a few minutes each day to review a specified report to ensure that all backup jobs were completed successfully. This process is not only fully automated, but also is seamlessly integrated into even the most complex environments.
Safeguarding your data is the first step in a plan to keep your company operating nonstop in any emergency. But it's not as simple as it once seemed. Now you might have to replicate your data out-of-region to comply with ever-tightening regulations and business requirements, provide an answer for rolling disasters, and establish a practical recovery methodology that maximizes your recovery point and recovery time objectives.
As corporations adopt and implement new global business initiatives, the role of Security within a company must change from an 'Inhibitor' to an 'Enabler'. Instead of 'Keep the Bad Guys out'; it is how we securely let the 'Good Guys in?' Identity and Security Management has become a critical focus area in the efficient, cost effective and secure deployment of integrated e-business solutions
In the past, hard copy papers were considered the main pieces of evidence. There was a gentleman's understanding between lawyers that neither side would ask for electronic evidence. Systems were implemented to organize, track and produce documents. With new technologies such as digital imaging and optical character recognition (OCR), the physical space needed to house document discovery collections was reduced. However, with the evolution of this discovery phase, paper was always the constant.
iSCSI, or internet SCSI, is an IETF standard which maps SCSI blocks into Ethernet packets. Fundamentally, the iSCSI protocol is a method for transporting low latency SCSI blocks across IP networks. iSCSI also allows you to build storage area networks over IP using something you already know and use everyday: Ethernet. In this way, iSCSI removes the limitations of direct attached storage, including the inability to share storage resources across servers and to expand capacity without shutting down applications.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a LAN-attached storage server with a small, optimized system software package dedicated to performing storage related tasks. It includes preconfigured disk capacity that can be quickly installed on popular network platforms. Our SAN solutions encompass storage systems, switches, servers, management software, multi-protocol support, and services developed by vendors such as Hitachi, Nexsan, JMR, Cisco, HP, CommVault and BakBone. Our SANs Solutions reduce total cost of ownership by minimizing support costs and downtime, and optimizing server and storage configurations.
Since the storage area network (SAN) first broke the traditional server/storage bond, we've been helping organizations lower their total cost of storage ownership with our collaborative approach to supporting this innovative technology. SANs make large storage pools shareable across the enterprise, centralize storage management, and dramatically improve storage utilization, resulting in lower costs. Yet they can simultaneously provide better performance for the applications that drive your business.
As growing amounts of information have amassed globally, so have the concerns over information authenticity, protection, and security. Government regulations such as SEC Rule 17a-4 for the financial services industries, HIPAA for healthcare, and the all encompassing Sarbanes-Oxley act have moved aggressively to further protect investors from financial malfeasance as well as to shield individuals and groups from violations of their privacy. As a result, both IT and financial executives are faced with substantial legal and financial penalties if unstructured data (email and documents) are not properly managed and retained over their lifecycle.
Business executives in today's IT environments face the challenge of managing exponential storage growth with reduced IT budgets. If you're facing this issue in your data center, let Arkay show you how you can manage more data with fewer, more powerful resources by consolidating your storage onto a customized solution. You can achieve higher levels of storage utilization, improve the availability and scalability of your storage environment and enhance the management of your storage infrastructure. You'll also simplify your business continuity requirements and lower the costs associated with protecting critical data assets.
Data life cycle management (DLM) is a policy-based approach to managing the flow of an information system's data throughout its life cycle: from creation and initial storage to the time when it becomes obsolete and is deleted. DLM products automate the processes involved, typically organizing data into separate tiers according to specified policies, and automating data migration from one tier to another based on those criteria. As a rule, newer data, and data that must be accessed more frequently, is stored on faster, but more expensive storage media, while less critical data is stored on less expensive, but slower media.
