Don't Spend More on Disaster Recovery Than You Have To

Lilac Schoenbeck

We get it. It's December. Visions of sugarplums are dancing in your head - or - if you're like me, you're debating whether you can be bothered to make homemade doughnuts. You've got other concerns beyond IT resiliency. This a month for just getting through. 

Everyone wakes up in January 3rd and decides it's time to get their disaster recovery plan in order. It's been a priority for years - and I bet your management team will fight you tooth and nail over the costs yet again. This is a dance you know well.

The Budget Battle: Don't Kill DRaaS

Lilac Schoenbeck

We are rapidly approaching the end of 2016. With it will come a million blogs prognosticating 2017 trends, setting priorities and suggesting resolutions. We are also rapidly approaching, for many, the 2017 budget cycle, the most coveted gala event of the IT year. 

This wont be a blog about new promises, new plans or new resolutions. This will be a blog about an old one: DRaaS.

Can VMs be Too Big for DRaaS?

Kenneth Falor

There’s been a lot of talk around the water cooler lately about extremely large VMs and the pain of backing them up as well as the agony of restoring these monster VMs should the need arise. When I say agony, I am thinking of a root canal without pain killers…

We all love that the price of storage has become so cheap that everyone seems to have at least a terabyte of photos and two or three terabytes of movies these days – my 75 year old father included. Gone are the days when server admins religiously set user storage quotas and monitored file shares for .jpg and .mp3 files. Why bother? It costs more to monitor, find and then delete the offending files than it costs to simply add more space.

IT Resilience: Something to get excited about. No, really.

Lilac Schoenbeck

The provocative side of IT Resilience is made up of the threats that have more and more people talking about it. Who isn’t intrigued (and terrified) by headlines about IT failures that have triggered nationwide flight cancellations or data hostage situations or global service outages?

That Veeam DR Button

Lilac Schoenbeck

You're fiddling in Veeam every day. It's how you manage your VMs, track performance, consider capacity and take your snapshots. Every night, Veeam dutifully makes a backup of all your VMs while you're peacefully eating your kale salad (or fries.. or Cuban sandwich). It's really a delight.

But, there's a button in the corner taunting you - and it promises disaster recovery, simply and easily. But buttons have often been deceptive and "easy" is such a marketing term. It can't be.

Veeam Cloud Connect Replication FAQ: Part One

Sam Woodcock

My fellow solutions architect, Jeff Polczynski, and I had a great time on a webinar covering the new iland DRaaS solution leveraging Veeam Cloud Connect Replication (VCC-R) technology.

I'd also recommend watching the on demand recording of the webinar for a complete demo of the solution.
