There are a number of options available to an organisation looking to effectively manage legacy backup migration, says Paul le Messurier, Programme and Operations Manager at Kroll Ontrack - but the 'do-nothing option' is not recommended

Stash the flash

The "flash everywhere" trend is actually materialising as "flash where it makes economic sense". George Teixeira, CEO of DataCore Software, considers how a more mature adoption of flash is now bearing fruit through a strategy of cost-effective utilisation of flash technology spreading from servers to widespread usage across the board

Welcome to our September 2015 e-newsletter.

As you receive this issue of the Storage magazine e-newsletter, we are rapidly approaching the IT industry's largest showcase event, IP Expo, and our feature includes a wealth of good reasons to attend the show if you were yet to make up your mind. However I must update the article with the news that renowned 'whistle-blower' Edward Snowden is now no longer scheduled to deliver one of the keynotes. Nonetheless there will still be over 300 seminars and a similar number of exhibitors at London's ExCel for the show, so I'm sure you can still find plenty of justification for a visit - look out for Storage magazine there!

Elsewhere in this newsletter you'll find Kroll Ontrack's Paul Le Messurier discussing the issues invloved in migrating legacy backup systems - something all organisations have to face with frightening regularity, yet something that many choose to ignore in the hope it will go away. As Paul explains, this 'do nothing and hope you never need to restore from those legacy systems' option is short-sighted at best, and almost suicidal at worst. Can any modern business afford to take such a lax approach in these days of compliance and data regulation?
