Mind the gap
– Managing security and risk for Microsoft 365
If you are thinking, “that’s OK, we’ll just let them use Microsoft’s security tools”, then J Peter Bruzzese of Mimecast has some working-from-home truths for you. And, of course, also some sound advice about how to mind the security gap between office and home.
Protect and recover your NAS and unstructured data

Cloud native storage
– Enabling the next generation application platforms
Join Alex Chircop, the CEO of StorageOS, who will explain to the Reg’s Tim Phillips how persistent storage for Kubernetes can deliver high availability and fast failover, and how that will improve the way you deploy your applications in the cloud.

How backup modernization changes the ransomware game
– Achieve data control for business resilience
If the thrill of backing up your data and wondering if you will ever see it again has worn off, start the new year by getting rid of the lingering pain of legacy backup.

M&A Microsoft 365 tenant migration

Cloud data management
– More than just backup
Where is our data? What is in our data? How do we find what we need? Is it compliant – and can we prove that if we need to? These questions have been keeping us awake for as long as we have had data centres. Now we are moving that data to the cloud -- or clouds – the data management questions grow exponentially. When we take all the SaaS applications we use into account, the problem grows to feel overwhelming. It’s time to think again about how we manage our data, regardless of where it’s stored. But the topic, like the volume of data, can seem overwhelmingJanuary 2021
You need to upgrade your legacy SQL Server

Cluster Management And Virtualization
– Two Great Technologies That Now Work Great Together
Organizations that use high-performance computing have long relied on tools to help build and manage the complex clusters that host their HPC applications, and Bright Cluster Manager is one of the most popular commercial software tools for doing this. HPC clusters are typically built from bare metal servers, however, virtualization technologies – most notably vSphere from VMware – has made great strides in closing the performance gap for VMs making it increasingly attractive to use virtualized servers for some HPC applications.November 2020
Deploying PostgreSQL as a Strategic Tool

– More than flipping a switch
We’ve been talking about paperless communications since the dawn of digital, but we haven’t got the job done yet.
