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 ».

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
