Hybrid Cloud Storage – Innovation that helps organisations keep pace with today’s business environment

Hybrid Cloud Storage

Significant growth in the amount of data to be stored has become a key factor, when controlling costs, for most organisations. Yet the need to maintain rapid access to production data remains constant, to stay one step ahead of competitors.

Enterprise storage that offers huge capacity (up to 500 Terabytes) is now available, to meet and exceed enterprise workloads. Microsoft Azure StorSimple seamlessly connects your on-premise data centre to the Cloud, offers integrated data protection and location independent disaster recovery.

 

The value it can bring to your business

Microsoft’s Azure StorSimple has a positive impact on data storage, making this easy to manage over time. As business data ages the system will automatically move it from local solid state disks, on to spinning hard drives, then on to Microsoft Azure cloud storage. This hybrid cloud tiering system reduces the cost of data storage considerably. Especially for organisations that use large media files and/or have a high number of customer transactions carried out daily.

StorSimple cloud snapshots also mean that you have automated off-site data protection in Azure, replacing the need for traditional solutions such as tape backup or remote replication.

The ability to create locally pinned volumes also means that information that requires high speed access can permanently reside on the local SSDs and HDDs whilst still benefitting from the protection that the cloud snapshots provide.

The cloud snapshots can be restored quickly and with minimal effort, easily allowing you to meet your recovery time objectives.

This single solution has been implemented by Network Interlinks for clients’ in the retail and entertainment industries. It provides organisations with an easy to manage data storage environment that can be extended across multiple locations. Offers simplified data protection, increases the performance requirements of business analytics and has proven to be cost effective.

Cybercrime continues to be an issue for small & midsize businesses.

  ransomware image Yesterday the BBC reported that more than 50% of UK businesses have suffered ransomware attacks in the last year. This is the greatest single risk to IT networks and business performance. We have helped a number of companies, in the past few weeks, recover from recent attacks. However, the cost in terms of lost time and sales revenue has in some cases been significant. We believe prevention is better than cure and have outlined the issue and methods to avoid the angst and potential loss of sales revenue below:  

How does it work?

  Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to business data by encrypting and renaming files. The bug usually travels into the IT network through email or downloadable internet files, programmes or applications. A demand for a sum of money is made and usually payable in bitcoins. These are untraceable so the perpetrator escapes with the cash – usually in the region of £2,500. Decrypting files without the decryption key is complex and time consuming. As a result organisations and businesses must weigh up whether they wish to part with the ransom or lose time, precious data and incur costs for IT consultants to solve the issue.  

How do I prevent it?

  Enforce good security practices within the businesses IT networks by employing effective anti-virus, anti-malware and anti-spam products to improve the chance of detection before infection. This includes educating the workforce to the dangers of downloading information from an unknown source. Talk to our consultants who will assist your company to write and communicate effective online security policies that will protect your business.  

How does my business recover without paying the ransom?

  Efficient back-up is the answer. Network Interlinks works quickly and painlessly to rebuild computer systems and applications to an acceptable recent state from the businesses Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solution. This out smart’s the criminal hacker and puts the company back in business promptly.
