IBM et Actifio ajoutent des nouvelles solutions puissantes de virtualisation des données au portefeuille d’IBM sur le Cloud

IBM (NYSE : IBM) a annoncé aujourd’hui un nouveau service de virtualisation des données pour son portefeuille d’offres aux entreprises basé sur le Cloud. Le nouveau service – IBM SmartCloud Data Virtualization (SCDV) – permettra aux clients de décupler leurs données d’application à partir de leur infrastructure physique, améliorant la résilience et l’agilité des entreprises et leur donnant la capacité de s’orienter de façon plus intégrée sur le Cloud.

Tandis que les sociétés se tournent vers des systèmes basés sur le Cloud, beaucoup ont du mal avec la complexité et les coûts associés aux données d’application liées à des infrastructures physiques. Les cloisonnements indépendants de matériel et de logiciels, conçus pour la prise en charge des sauvegardes, de la poursuite des activités, des procédures de développement et d’essais, de l’analytique et de la conformité, compliquent le processus de déplacement des données vers les emplacements où elles sont destinées afin de protéger de façon sécurisée et de développer rapidement les applications desquelles une entreprise dépend souvent.

En virtualisant la gestion des données, IBM SmartCloud Data Virtualization surmonte les défis posés par ces cloisonnements. Il est possible d’utiliser une simple copie physique – stockée à l’emplacement le mieux approprié pour un client donné – et d’en créer plusieurs copies virtuelles afin de prendre en charge n’importe quelle application d’entreprise. Les infrastructures sont réduites à mesure que les accords de niveau de service de protection et la disponibilité des données s’améliorent, générant une valeur économique et stratégique très attrayante pour le client.

IBM SmartCloud® Data Virtualization exploite la technologie Virtual Data Pipeline™ d’Actifio pour offrir un modèle unique de gestion des données critiques, sans le coût de gestion de copies excédentaires. Les clients peuvent restaurer leur capacité de stockage de production, améliorer l’utilisation de leurs centres de données et rétablir rapidement leurs serveurs critiques, réduisant ainsi considérablement le coût total de possession par rapport à ce qu’il est possible d’atteindre à travers des moyens standards.

Les services de reprise basés sur le Cloud sont prévus fournir des degrés supérieurs de résilience, une réponse plus rapide et une facilité d’utilisation à travers le libre-service, l’automatisation et des économies d’une échelle supérieure à celle des services de reprise sur sinistre classiques. Cette nouvelle offre permet d’atteindre ces objectifs avec la reprise d’une application en quelques minutes au lieu de plusieurs heures, des instantanés de données ponctuels pour aider à éliminer les fenêtres de sauvegarde traditionnelles et elle améliore radicalement le stockage de production. La capacité de reprise d’une application peut être testée – en temps réel – sans perturber le système de production. Les basculements d’essai peuvent être effectuées plus fréquemment et, en cas de basculement réel, les modifications sont enregistrées et automatiquement resynchronisées avec le système de production principal lors de l’initiation de la restauration automatique.

« La solution SmartCloud Data Virtualization d’IBM allie la puissance de la plate-forme de virtualisation des données d’Actifio à la technologie de résilience et la fiabilité opérationnelle d’IBM », a déclaré Laurence Guihard-Joly, Directrice générale pour la poursuite des activités et les services de résilience d’entreprise d’IBM. « Dans le cadre de notre portefeuille croissant de logiciels, de services et d’expertise sur le Cloud qui aident nos clients à faire face à tous les défis informatiques ou commerciaux avec assurance, en toute sécurité et avec confiance, non seulement SCDV offrira à beaucoup de clients des délais de reprise plus rapides à de meilleurs niveaux de prix, mais la solution leur permettra également de tirer profit de leurs données protégées en tant qu’actif commercial plutôt qu’une simple police d’assurance ».

« Nous sommes ravis qu’IBM ait choisi notre plate-forme pour cette initiative stratégique sur le Cloud et de travailler en étroite collaboration avec elle en vue d’offrir à plus de clients la puissance de notre offre combinée tandis qu’ils s’apprêtent à bénéficier de l’économie transformationnelle du Cloud », a indiqué le fondateur et Directeur général d’Actifio, Ash Ashutosh. « En conséquence, des milliers de clients d’IBM sont désormais en mesure d’obtenir des accords de niveau de service améliorés pour plus d’applications critiques, accélérant ainsi leurs affaires et leur parcours vers le Cloud ».

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
