  1. 065 – Backing Up Your Software-as-a-Service

    When you’re using Office 365, do you believe that Microsoft is taking care of the backups of that crucial information? If so, you’re living under a dangerous delusion. That’s because Microsoft takes care of its own infrastructure. When it comes to your data sitting on their infrastructure, you’re mostly on your own. Your email, your data in SharePoint or Microsoft Teams or other Softwar… Listen Now

  2. 064 – Understanding the Google Cloud Platform

    In the Internet age, an old saying goes that it’s best to be there first. And there’s truth in that, too. When it comes to public cloud computing, Amazon was first, and they’re a clear No. 1 in the space. Sometimes it’s hard to be in third place, like Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is, behind Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. On the other hand, Google is a huge company with lo… Listen Now

  3. 063 – Complexity: The Enemy of Efficiency for Data Protection in the Multicloud World

    More and more companies are going multicloud; that is, they’re not standardizing on one platform like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform or Microsoft Azure. They’re picking and choosing multiple providers in an a la carte fashion. While this is a good thing, it also comes with big challenges. Perhaps the biggest of all is complexity. And when it comes to backing up data on those pla… Listen Now

  4. 061 - Leveraging the Cloud for Research Education Networks

    Major research universities face a dilemma: they have tons of data that needs to be stored, and are creating more data all the time. Simultaneously, they have notoriously tight budgets that are often set in concrete. What do do? The solution may lie in public cloud storage, which can provide predictable costs and protected, yet easily-accessible, data. Beware, though, because the big dogs of th… Listen Now

  5. 060 – The Data Explosion and Challenges for Backup

So if you’re doing things the old-fashioned way, this “10 on Tech” episode is for you. Dan Keldsen, Director Of Customer Innovation for Wasabi, chats with ActualTech Media’s James Green about ho… Listen Now

  6. 062 – The Evolution of Storage from Tape to Cloud

    In the IT world, tape has been around for almost as long as storage itself. It’s proven itself to be cheap and reliable; because of that, it still has significant market share. But is it still a viable solution for today’s enterprises? That’s the question ActualTech Media’s James Green puts to Dan Keldsen, Director Of Customer Innovation for Wasabi. Keldsen applauds tape’s past, bu… Listen Now

  7. 059 – Securing the Internet of Things

    Securing remote IT sites is orders of magnitude more difficult than it was just a few short years ago. In addition to the traditional remote/branch office (ROBO) network, we’re now in the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing age. With the number of connected devices exploding, getting a handle on securing it all is daunting. But Cybera has come up with an innovative solution. Using the… Listen Now

  8. 058 – Why You Should NOT Eat Like a 6-year-old

    "Things that can be automated, should be automated.” That’s Sinequa’s philosophy as described by Scott Parker, director of product marketing. Sinequa specializes in “information-driven” data, as opposed to “data driven.” It’s the difference, Parker tells ActualTech Media’s James Green, behind Warren Buffet’s famous quote that he “eats like a 6-year-old” because he saw da… Listen Now

  9. 057 - Media and Entertainment With a Cloud Storage Foundation

    The media and entertainment industries are one of the fields seeing the most rapid growth of data. High-resolution video is the standard now, and that resolution is getting higher and higher all the time, including 4k and 8k and even higher resolution. And all that data needs to be stored somewhere. But not only stored; it needs to be available for quick, even immediate, access. That’s one re… Listen Now

  10. 056 - How Wasabi Is Disrupting Cloud Storage

    You know the cloud isn’t going anywhere, right? And you know that your company needs to develop a cloud strategy sooner rather than later. Despite that knowledge, many, many companies are still reluctant to get started. A big reason why is that it can be intimidating to even know where to start. What’s the simplest, least risky, and most cost-effective way to kick off your cloud adventure?… Listen Now

  11. 058 – The Tyranny of Storage Tiers

    Cloud storage is typically defined in three tiers – hot, warm, and cold. Those tiers also affect how much you pay for them, and how quickly you can retrieve your data. It’s a system that many organizations accept and use without thinking. But Wasabi believes that it doesn’t have to be that way. They’ve come up with what they believe is a far superior system of having one hot tier for al… Listen Now

  12. 055 – Security Segmentation Doesn't Have to be Painful

    When software was decoupled from the underlying hardware – a process known as “virtualization” -- a revolution followed. Multiple applications could exist on one server; it was the first step in the transformation of the data center. Illumio has a similar idea for security in the data center. As Faraz Aladin, head of Technical Product Marketing at Illumio, discusses with ActualTech Media… Listen Now

  13. 054 – You Can’t Trust Anyone!

    Zero trust. It sounds harsh, doesn’t it? But when it comes to your network, it’s the best way to handle security. Zero trust means assuming that anyone on your network, whether inside or outside, has harmful intentions. If you think about it that way, you’re more likely to lock your network down properly. That’s what Don Boxley believes. Boxley, CEO/Co-founder of security company DH2i,… Listen Now

  14. 053 - Growing Beyond the Data Center World

    It’s not just about keeping the lights on anymore. IT today must create value for the business, and that means changing how you see your data center, including storage. Ellen Rubin, CEO & Co-founder of ClearSky Data, expounds on those themes in this “10 on Tech” podcast with ActualTech Media’s James Green. She says that those companies that don’t make the move to digital transformatio… Listen Now

    Tom Koulopoulos believes it’s time to change your thinking about the value and role of data in the enterprise. Data is driving the revolution in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the more data you have, the better your AI is going to be. But what is the “bottomless cloud?” That’s what Tom dives into with ActualTech Media’s James Green in this episode of “10 on Tech.” Among the thi… Listen Now

  16. 051 - Cloud Trends for the Enterprise

    There’s a belief that everyone’s moving to the public cloud these days. The reality, though, is different, as studies show that few enterprises have made the leap. It doesn’t have to be scary, though. There are many concerns companies have, but the public cloud has so many advantages that every responsible business needs to be exploring its options. That’s where this episode of “10… Listen Now

  17. 050 - Disrupting the Cloud 1.0 Giants

    Chances are, when you think of public cloud storage, you think of the “big dogs” like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Public Cloud. It’s Wasabi’s mission to get you to break out of that narrow mindset and think of them as well. Those providers have drawbacks—serious ones—for organizations. You need to understand, going in, what you're getting yourself into.… Listen Now

  18. 049 – Veeam and the Art of Cloud Data Management

    If you’re like most companies, you still probably keep the majority of your data on-premises. But that’s changing rapidly, as more and more data is breaking out of the traditional boundaries and moving to the cloud. What do you do then? How do you corral that data, keep an eye on it, make sure it’s safe and, if the worst should happen, make sure you can restore it? Those are the topics Ac… Listen Now

  19. 048 – There’s No Such Thing As ‘Zero Risk’

    “Risk Management” needs to be more than a slogan, if you want to protect your most valuable assets: it needs to be a mindset. It needs to be a way of life for your organization. To that end, consider the warning of Vijay Chauhan, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Illumio, that a risk-free environment doesn’t exist. The conversation then becomes about managing that risk, Chauhan tells… Listen Now
