Many enjoy capturing photos and videos with their phones, but we often forget that our phone storage can get full fast. To solve this, some store their photos in the cloud. To keep our memories safe from loss or hacking, we utilize passwords and other security measures. But it's tough to keep our data organized and protected online.
As customer preferences, business operations, and enterprise competition evolve, IT leaders must ensure their data storage solutions meet customer needs. For that reason, an enhanced security and data recovery strategy is required for thriving in today's fast-paced digital economy. One method to achieve this objective is implementing unified storage, which consolidates all data into a single, scalable platform and mitigates potential threats. This allows businesses to replace ineffective data storage systems and deploy a simplified, efficient solution that minimizes downtime and streamlines operations.
There is an ongoing shift to hybrid multi-cloud infrastructure, requiring businesses to adopt agile and seamless approaches to workload management across multiple clouds. IT professionals managing enterprise and legacy applications may initially consider virtual machines for on-premise cloud solutions. However, it may be more beneficial to refactor applications using cloud-native technologies like containers, rather than relying on the lift and shift approach.
A lift and shift method may involve moving from traditional VM environments to cloud-based environments like EC2, EBS, or Azure. However, for most modern businesses, a hybrid approach is the best option. Nutanix, a pioneer in hybrid cloud infrastructure, offers a viable solution to maintain and streamline operations while meeting business needs.
The quantity and severity of ransomware attacks are expected to rise once again in 2023, and businesses need to take steps to protect themselves from these costly and disruptive incidents. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, “Ransomware will cost its victims around $265 billion (USD) annually by 2031.” These attacks have a devastating impact on enterprises, causing critical data loss and downtime. In addition, businesses may also be liable for the cost of the ransomware attack itself.
Because organizations generate a large amount of data every day and have increasingly large workloads moving between hybrid and multi-cloud environments, unified storage has become important for ransomware protection. In this post, we cover what unified storage is and how it addresses ransomware.
As an industry, it can be argued that healthcare experienced the greatest number of technological challenges at the height of the pandemic. Identifying and implementing the technology that was required for the early months of Covid tested even the most experienced of IT leaders. Radical changes occurred for administrative personnel, clinical personnel, and of course, patients and their families.
Almost every enterprise across many different industries is using cloud infrastructure to help meet business goals more efficiently. Developing strategies that include multiple clouds can help with reduced IT costs and flexibility. The majority of businesses plan to implement hybrid and multi-cloud solutions to maximize efficiency. In fact, 92 percent of businesses are already moving to a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy. In this article, we discuss hybrid and multi-cloud efficiency and what’s required to implement the transition to this strategy. After all, the days of single cloud use are just about obsolete for mid-size enterprises and up.
Every year, enterprises make decisions regarding their technology goals, and this is largely based on where they are in their digital transformation journey. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, Nutanix offers transitional capabilities for various enterprises. In this article we cover the six core industries where Nutanix hybrid and multi-cloud solutions can help business transformation take place.
Enterprises are turning to a hybrid multi-cloud environment as a solution to the modern technology challenges they are faced with. However, if not expected, this shift can be met with challenges that cause dissatisfaction and contradict the value that can be gained from it.
There used to be a single test to determine the effectiveness of your data backup strategy. It centered around successfully restoring your data from a backup, and you would rest easy knowing that you would, in theory, recover from a data loss event. It was really that simple. Still, there were some security concerns as you did not want just anyone accessing the backups who might accidently (or inadvertently) delete them. There was also the threat of confiscating a backup tape containing sensitive or valuable data by an imposter. For the most part, the data backup system was out of sight and out of mind for everyone other than the backup administrator.
According to Flexera’s cloud report, 92% of organizations adopted a multi-cloud approach in 2021. Cloud strategies allow your enterprise to increase flexibility, consistently update, foster greater agility, and enable rapid innovation. However, there are a number of common cloud adoption mistakes enterprises struggle with due to the lack of proper cloud strategy, planning, and governance mechanisms.
