One of the greatest challenges faced by today’s enterprises is managing their ever-increasing volumes of data. Over time, the volume, location and importance of data have all evolved, and legacy solutions can no longer keep up.
When it comes to challenges faced by today’s IT organizations, there are few as universal as data management. In the last two decades, the volume of data that enterprises are expected to utilize, secure, and manage has increased exponentially. The location of that data has also changed, with much of it moving to the cloud or hybrid environments.
It seems like everyone is going hybrid these days when it comes to enterprise architectures. According to Gartner, 75 percent of midsize and large organizations will have adopted a multi-cloud and/or a hybrid IT model by now. The reason is pretty simple, while 97 percent of IT decision makers confirm a positive experience with the public cloud, not everything can go there. Unfortunately, there are issues such as security, compliance, and the uncomfortable uncertainty of managing your stuff ‘up there’―wherever that place is―that prevents companies from the public cloud experience for all. If everything could reside in a public cloud however, what a wonderful world it would be.
Morpheus Data recently unveiled the next version of its hybrid cloud management platform. While already recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms, this new release further cements its place on the list.
In addition to improving all the great day-2 functionality that comes built-in, Morpheus made improvements in some key areas of their hybrid cloud management platform. Improving the catalog view with personas is a big one. The ability to tailor a user’s view can really improve the experience. For example, you don’t want non-technical folks overwhelmed with too many options. This allows your team to customize the catalog to each user’s job.
While the cloud is not necessarily a new technology, it’s only been over the last decade that cloud computing has evolved from a new, market disrupting trend to an almost universally accepted method for delivering next-gen services.
Today, there are few industries where enterprises have yet to undergo some form of digital transformation. Over the last few decades, businesses have undergone digitization at unparalleled speeds. Networking solutions are at the heart of these changes and can be the key that allows enterprises to adjust and meet the changing needs of their business.
WEI often works with clients in both areas of backup and disaster recovery at the same time. We find it’s often beneficial for them to be part of a single strategy since the function of backup and DR relates so closely together (recovering from some sort of event). They do have slightly different goals, however. With backup, you might be looking at a smaller data loss, such as accidental deletion or corruption of files.

As enterprises continue evolving to meet the new challenges and opportunities of the digital era, IT leaders are faced with a daunting task: implement a flexible data center infrastructure that can support this new and ever-changing generation of technology solutions.
