​Fujitsu bolsters data protection portfolio with new Hybrid IT solutions

"IT buyers are focused on easy-to-integrate Cloud offerings that combine the benefits of Cloud with existing assets."

Fujitsu has launched its Fujitsu Cloud Backup as a Service Rapid Recovery Appliance, designed to enhance the globally available Fujitsu Cloud Backup as a Service (BaaS) solution across enterprise.

This pre-configured solution aims to provide the “flexible data protection approach needed in a hybrid IT model” where business processes are supported by a mixture of on-premise and external Cloud services.

In addition, it combines backup and recovery appliances with Cloud-based backup strategies, such as pay-as-you-grow pricing and data security.

“With an ever-increasing trend toward consuming IT via a Cloud service delivery model, IT buyers are focused on easy-to-integrate cloud offerings that combine the benefits of Cloud with existing assets,” says James Jefferd, Global Offering Manager, Fujitsu.

“The Fujitsu BaaS Rapid Recovery Appliance does this and means clients can replace traditional on-site, tape-based backup with disk-based solutions that are agile, scalable, simple to use and secure.

“Combining the capability of the Fujitsu Cloud-based service with the new appliance delivers a very flexible backup architecture that can be managed from anywhere yet be highly distributed.”

According to Gartner, public Cloud options are becoming increasingly considered for server workloads, especially for remote-office and departmental computing environments.

“While most organisations cite concerns over security as their top Cloud issue, the greater issue is often latency, as data encryption and key management are well-established methods for protecting off-site backup data,” adds Dave Russell, research analyst, Gartner.

“This means that an on-premises, local copy of the data, or at least the most recent backup of the most critical data, is best practice. Thus, a disk-to-disk-to-Cloud [D2D2C] model is emerging.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
