Many companies consider using cloud storage to reduce costs and the IT burden of storing data in the enterprise. However, simply calculating the annual cost of a SAN or NAS server versus the per GB cost of cloud storage does not produce an accurate view of cost savings, because cloud storage alone is not equal to all the functionality found in today’s enterprise-class storage solutions. Cloud-integrated Storage (CiS) delivers the benefits of cloud storage with the features and functionality that enterprises require, while still reducing the cost of storage. Using examples of real companies, this white paper will illustrate five different ways enterprise organizations can save money by transitioning from traditional hardware to Nasuni Cloud-integrated Storage for storing file data.

MongoDB is an open-source, document database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores, which are fast and scalable, and relational databases, which have rich functionality. Instead of storing data in rows and columns as one would with a relational database, MongoDB stores JSON documents with dynamic schemas.
Customers should consider three primary factors when evaluating databases: technological fit, cost, and topline implications. MongoDB's flexible and scalable data model, robust feature set, and high-performance, high-availability architecture make it suitable for a wide range of database use cases. Given that in many cases relational databases may also be a technological fit, it is helpful to consider the relative costs of each solution when evaluating which database to adopt.
Inside the API Product Mindset
APIs expose data or functionality for use by applications and developers, which means they allow access to a business’s valuable digital assets—and thus to the heart of the business itself. Vulnerable APIs can expose a business’s core data and services to a variety of threats. Therefore, API security should be of paramount importance to any enterprise that exposes digital assets.
Google Cloud’s new eBook, Building and Managing Secure APIs, takes a deeper look at the do’s and don’ts of enterprise API security.
Explore how to design secure, easy-to-use APIs with field-tested best practices, real-world use cases and a checklist to help your team get started.
