Not so long ago Forbes published a very interesting article by Lance Smith, CEO of Primary Data named “Migrations Are Dead, Long Live Migrations”. It got me thinking about this whole data migration business. For over 8 years, while I was at NetApp, I spent the majority of my time designing, scoping and calculating levels of effort for data migration projects of various complexities.
In this blog, we are comparing traditional siloed IT infrastructures with unified environments. Through this comparison, you are able to understand what happens, what functions develop and what managerial tasks are required on a daily basis to maintain such environments. But most importantly you are able to understand what is costing your organization to sustain either a traditional or a unified infrastructure.
In addition to helping enterprises, Reduxio also serves organizations in the public sector such as state and local government agencies across the US. From the City of Thousand Oaks in Southern California to the towns of Barnstable, Brockton, and Medford in Massachusetts, as well as a wide range of unified public school districts from Washington state to Connecticut.
Regardless the industry a business operates, the data generated is exponentially accumulating to vast amounts and blocks that constantly need management and protection. Technology is moving at a rapid pace making storage systems obsolete faster than ever. Consequently, organizations must move usable and business critical information to different systems bringing forward the need for a concurrent data migration progress that entails validating, moving and testing data.

This webcast has been created as a space to hold conversations with IT Infrastructure professionals who share similar concerns and challenges, as well as success stories and a real-world case study from Jorge Barreto, Enterprise Architect at BFL Canada, on how he addressed the following challlenges:1. Meet IOPS requirements2. Spend time in labor-intensive operations such as VM Recovery3. Lack of team...
In today’s data-centric enterprises, ransomware, cyberattacks and other IT disasters can mean wasted downtime and the loss of critical data. To protect against these events and create effective disaster recovery programs, near-zero recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) are essential.
Unfortunately, IDC research suggests that the average RPO target is one hour while the average RTO time is four hours. Achieving near-zero RPO and RTO is possible, but it often...
There’s a well-known saying : in life, the only constant thing is change. This is never truer than in the IT industry where change is brought about by a constant evolution of data management and consumption. The rate of data growth is leaping, along with the need to properly manage it and protect it. Why?
CPP is best known for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, they are a group of people committed to improving the performance of individuals and organizations around the world. Their story began more than 50 years ago with the pairing of two psychology professors—one from Stanford and one from U.C. Berkeley—with a common goal: to use research-based psychological assessments to give people the insight and guidance they need to develop in both their personal and professional lives....
The Last Mile (TLM) began as an intensive 6-month entrepreneurship program at San Quentin, in which men learned how to tap into their passion to create a business that includes a technology component and social cause. TLM was created to provide programs that result in successful reentry and reduce recidivism. Their mission is to provide marketable skills that lead to employment.
I get to talk to customers quite often and when the conversation turns towards storage performance, and we talk about 120K IOPS and sub-millisecond latency in OLTP workloads coming off a 2U array that holds more than a hundred terabytes, I typically get asked "how comes it's that fast?", or "what is the impact on performance of dedupe, compression, data protection?".
