“The Windows Azure cloud platform can provide IT organizations with an affordable and highly available alternative to managing offsite backup storage repositories and tape backups. We’re pleased to work with Veeam to make it easy for small to mid-sized organizations to take advantage of the Windows Azure cloud.”

Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst for Data Protection, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)

“Improving backup and increased virtualization continue to be top planned IT investments in 2013, which is just one of the reasons for Veeam’s success. Veeam was among the first to directly address the unique protection challenges of highly virtualized environments, and they have demonstrated an appetite to grow beyond those first successes and continue innovating. Today, every IT conversation seems to have cloud-considerations in it. So it should come as no surprise that Veeam would be among the first vendors to pull it all together in providing a simple, powerful solution for copying VM backups to the cloud.”

Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software, IDC

"Many customers see offsite backup as a necessary component for their data protection and recovery strategy but stop short of actual implementation because they see acquiring and managing an offsite repository as too expensive and complicated. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition helps to address these types of barriers to adoption of cloud technology by making it easier for their customers to copy backups to the cloud.”

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software

“Small to mid-sized organizations now have a cost effective and easy-to-use alternative to tape backups and establishing an offsite backup repository. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition enables IT to quickly set up scheduled copies to the public cloud of their choice, and the software takes care of the rest, with regular reports and alerts that keep backup admins fully informed on costs and backup status. We’re proud to have set the standard in virtualization for modern data protection. With Veeam Backup Cloud Edition, we’ve raised the bar yet again with a solution that’s powerful, easy to use and affordable.”

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys.

In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
