Kim Komando, “America’s Digital Goddess,” is a leading radio host and web entrepreneur. Every month her video-taped three-hour weekly radio show adds 2.8 TB of video content to its extensive playback library. Switching from their current storage solution, a combination of NAS Arrays and Tape Drives, to Wasabi not only generated huge savings it was simpler and faster. Plus, since Cloudberry works seamlessly with Wasabi, the show also enjoys efficient and cost-effective remote data protection. In this Case Study read in detail how the ‘Kim Komando Show’ made the transition to next generation cloud storage.
The recent Amazon S3 outage highlights the need for high-quality secondary storage and raises questions around dependence on a single-service provider. Wasabi offers a highly compelling alternative to Amazon S3 Cross Region Replication (CRR) allowing you to keep a live copy of your S3 data on Wasabi for a 1/5th the price of CRR. Fully compliant with S3, Wasabi also provides extreme data durability, integrity and security. In this tech brief we take you through Wasabi’s proposition of extreme savings with zero degradation in quality for secondary storage.
At Wasabi, we believe that storage should be simple, inexpensive, interchangeable, reliable, fast and readily available to anyone who needs it. Just like bandwidth or electricity. Not only that it is mission critical. As data storage needs grow, both in terms of volume and leverage-ability, next generation cloud storage will become more and more of a necessity. In this White Paper Wasabi discusses that and more through their ‘5 Immutable Laws for Storing ALL Your Data in the Cloud.’

There is a major shift happening in the world of
enterprise IT systems.
Many organizations are trading on-premises systems for
cloud-based solutions, a move that brings virtually limitless
scalability, storage and accessibility – usually at a lower
cost and with reduced complexity. Global adoption of cloud
enterprise productivity platforms hit an all-time high of 81%
in 2018, up from 24% in 2014.*
If you’re a longtime Microsoft customer, a logical first step
in making the journey from on-premises to the cloud is to
move your email to Microsoft Office 365™. You aren’t alone.
Office 365 is Microsoft’s fastest-growing business, ever.
According to Gartner, 84% of IT decision makers indicated
that they are currently using or planning to use Office 365
in the next six months.
Digital technology has arguably been the biggest disruptor for individuals and organisations in the last twenty years. It has changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we spend our time and how we develop and grow our businesses. For businesses, digital has not just created new products and services, but fundamentally shifted business models and the dynamic between business and customer, business and supplier, business and employee. It has become a significant force for value and revenue creation, but one that brings with it many challenges.
There’s no question about it: purpose-built all-flash storage is an exceptional catalyst for improving data center operations and supporting the transition to the cloud operating model. AFAs’ highly strategic role in both IT and business underscores the need to move storage purchase discussions and decisions beyond the storage team. IT leaders who want to see their organizations reap AFAs’ benefits—performance improvement, productivity gains, and cost savings, among others—should actively define their AFA strategies and oversee storage-related decision making, thus treating storage like the newly strategic asset it has become.

Over time, hybrid cloud will increasingly become the mainstream deployment model for IT infrastructure. Flash storage brings with it many benefits necessary in hybrid cloud environments, and IDC already views it as a requirement for enterprise workloads that have any performance sensitivity. This IDC white paper discusses the state of enterprise storage with respect to the evolving cloud storage market, explains why flash storage is needed in these environments, and then discusses what Pure Storage, a leading all-flash array vendor, brings to the table in this area. The document concludes with a short service provider case study.
Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.

To meet future demands, businesses need to take advantage of multicloud technology without replacing your current storage, yet ensure that it is fast, cost-efficient, scalable, and modern.
The right storage solution can help businesses to respond rapidly, expand capacity, and lower costs. This infographic looks at how businesses can modernise their infrastructure by investing in the next generation of IBM Storwize V7000, which is easy to scale, deploys faster and accelerates business execution with end-to-end NVMe.
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.

75% of enterprise-scale organizations currently use some type of cloud service. With major cloud providers continually competing to offer new capabilities and low prices, choice abounds. No single cloud is guaranteed to meet all your needs today and in the future. Opt for a more flexible solution. Download this paper to learn about a hybrid, multi-cloud approach that keeps you free to choose the right cloud resources for business at hand.
This report examines the most common hybrid cloud architectures and the storage management factors required for IT to extend their data center with efficiency. Learn about the keys to successfully implementing a hybrid cloud approach.
As business requirements drive the need for a hybrid cloud strategy, companies must determine how best to run their applications and manage their data—whether in their private data center, near the cloud, or in the cloud. Hyperscale cloud providers offer excellent flexibility by allowing customers to buy raw resources in a consumption model by the hour. NetApp® has released a new way of deploying the cluster Data ONTAP® operating system that runs on hyperscale resources, that when combined with NetApp Private Storage for Cloud, offers customers superior choice in how they manage their cloud storage.
