How to Maintain Your Datacenter and Business Continuity While Working Remote

By Shaun Kehrberg on April 17, 2020

Shifting to the Cloud: the ‘new normal’ for remote datacenter management

A crisis like COVID-19 can change all of our lives, both personally and professionally. 

With many organizations suddenly forced into a fully remote workforce, keeping teams connected and businesses running often means learning how to deploy new technology. Modern IT teams are working harder than ever, often behind the scenes, to maintain business continuity. That’s why it makes sense that interest in the use of the cloud is soaring. Datacenters are struggling to ensure continued operations in the wake of restricted access and a remote workforce.

Results of Data Economy Survey at AWS re:Invent 2019 | Igneous

By Shaun Kehrberg on February 11, 2020

IBM invented the hard disk in 1956.  It stored the equivalent of 3.5MB, was 5’ high by 6’ wide, weighed a ton (literally, not figuratively) and cost $7,000/month (in 2020 dollars) to lease.  And while that may seem light-years away from today’s situation, with 8TB drives available for $150, there is one important similarity: companies ran out of space almost instantly.

Is Switching Backup Vendors Really Such a Hassle?

By Lily Bowdler on May 1, 2018

We’re a vendor. We get it. Even if a modern enterprise customer is a little bit miserable, trying to keep up with their backup SLAs, comply with industry regulations, and keep data available to end users, all while watching their budget spiral out of control, it’s a total hassle to go out and evaluate a bunch of backup vendors. Then, once you decide to move forward with a “more modern” option, you expect to go through the motions of managing a major project.

Even before the events of this past week, ransomware attacks worried many IT professionals.
