It is critical for media and entertainment companies that they get the most out of the content they’ve invested in. But for many monetization of their assets is being inhibited by slow and expensive tape-based archival solutions (LTO) as well as first generation cloud storage like Amazon. Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, in partnership with Marquis Medway, is bringing media and entertainment companies a transformative new solution. Wasabi’s next generation cloud storage brings companies the speed they need to leverage their content, but costs far less than the traditional cloud storage options. Plus unlike Amazon and others, Wasabi does not charge you to retrieve your content—potentially a huge savings depending on how much you access it. To help you quickly and efficiently get assets from tape to cloud Wasabi has combined with Marquis Medway’s advanced workflow automation platform. To learn more about how this integrated solution can help you rapidly transition away from resource draining LT
In this brief, IDC discusses the challenges of using tape and the benefits of disk-based data protection solutions with data deduplication, especially if a business is experiencing unabated data growth, a lack of recovery performance, and increased costs associated with physical tape. Read the brief.

Infrastructure simplification is a concept popping up very often lately with IT managers across all kinds of organizations. But it’s nothing new for small, and budget constrained IT shops that have
always looked at ways of keeping their infrastructure simple, very manageable and highly serviceable. Unalaska City School District (UCSD) is no exception; in fact, its needs are even more constrained due to its particular position on the map.
Located on the Aleutian Chain, approximately 800 air miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Unalaska is home to 4,000 permanent residents and boasts the U.S’s most productive commercial fishing port of Dutch Harbor, which is also well-known as the home of successful TV show “The Deadliest Catch”.
Accessible only by airplane or boat, there are no roads to Unalaska. The deep water and ice-free International Port of Dutch Harbor serves cargo ships and large container vessels throughout the year, making this port one of the busiest transportation hubs in t

Information is becoming the currency of the 21st century, and organizations of all sizes are creating more information than ever
before. Frequently, organizations struggle with how best to balance storage requirements with available budgets. The benefits of greater storage capacity are clear: better change management and roll-back, easier archival and discovery, reliable backup and
recovery. But to continually grow on-site capacity requires unsustainable investment and introduces unnecessary risk. Prominent cloud service providers present an appealing alternative with their vast amounts of storage, offering low cost, high availability, and built-in redundancy. Riverbed’s Whitewater® family of cloud storage gateways is a drop-in replacement for existing tape- and diskbased backup targets, cuts backup costs 30-50% compared to tape and disk, and provides effective DR capability with minimal effort.
After a decade and a half optical technologies in the enterprise storage market account for only a fraction of 1% of enterprise storage hardware spending. For a traditional optical-based enterprise storage supplier, these are tough facts to acknowledge. Yet there will be a dramatically different future.

Today, most video post production for standard-definition content has moved onto disk-based, non-linear editing (NLE) systems. These systems offer improved flexibility over linear, tape-based systems by allowing a workstation fast access to any part of the digital media file.
To put it simply, data protection is complicated. Simplifying it involves assessing solutions for their near-term and long-term value. This paper examines the less obvious- but not less important - issues in simplifying backup.
Most data storage devices can be broadly characterized as either fixed media or removable media. This paper briefly examines and compares magnetic tape, magneto-optical disk, and removable magnetic disks, and identifies their positioning, future trends, and market applications.
Most companies continue to turn their backs on backup encryption because they think it will lead to new costs, performance problems, and recovery headaches. Read why ESG believes things are about to change to radically upset the backup encryption status quo and why Spectra Logic's recent entry into backup encryption is worth noting.
Disk in the form of - that is, disk presented as tape - can be added without requiring huge changes to existing backup strategies. This is more straightforward than adding disk into an existing environment, because adding disk without the VTL interface requires complex and unavoidable changes to existing strategies.
By utilizing the speed and reliability of the EMC CLARiiON® AX150 networked storage system and the convenience of EMC Retrospect® 7.5 for Windows backup and recovery software, SMBs can implement fast, effective, reliable data protection that is easy to set up and manage without placing undue strain on IT resources.
A world class IT organization needs to be better than even the regulators require – and good IT governance doesn't have to tie the IT department up in red tape. Judicious application of IT best practices, frameworks and methodologies can help achieve this, based on an accurate picture of the IT environment, at which point regulatory compliance becomes a happy side effect. Find out how you can have an up-to-date true view of your infrastructure on a daily basis – not just at a point in time by reading this white paper.
Virtual tape library (VTL) solutions are taking hold in companies of all sizes, but not all VTLs are equipped to meet the requirements of enterprise data centers. Evaluating virtual tape technology based on a few key considerations will help narrow the field and minimize buyer’s remorse.
