What is a disaster recovery plan?

Disasters come in all shapes and sizes, from a full site failure, to failure of something like a storage array. There may be a natural disaster where your data center is, or you may even have a malicious actor inside your environment seeking to harm your business.

Whatever the case, you need a plan, and all plans are not created equal. Then, once you have your plan, you need to test it and update it on a regular basis.

In an age full of data, integrity is essential

We live in a digital era where businesses use, analyze and rely on data, their processes and databases. An important part of data is its integrity because it ensures data is unchanged, undivided and in its complete, consistent form. More importantly, data integrity means the data is trustworthy. Organizations make data driven decisions, and if the data has been altered or changed it can have a negative impact on the business. Data integrity can also come into play when it comes to meeting different data regulations and compliance standards that are requirements in certain industries today. Let's explore what data integrity is, the different types of integrity and how it relates to data quality and security. Read more

Backup, recovery, and migration of mission-critical workloads on Azure

Regardless of what percentage of your organization’s mission-critical workloads are running in the cloud today, it’s likely far more than it was a year ago. This is due to a combination of net-new workloads, as well as migrating in from data centers, leading me to a Pinterest-worthy platitude – the life (of your data) is a journey, not a destination. The best infrastructures for our workloads today may not be the best tomorrow. We witnessed this with the decoupling and migration of the majority of our physical servers' OS, applications and data to virtualized platforms. Today, its rapid acceleration to the cloud, especially true in the light of COVID-19, further accelerating this shift. Read more
