Customers frequently ask us whether and when we plan to move our cloud backup and data storage to SSDs (Solid-State Drives). That’s not a surprising question considering the many advantages SSDs have over magnetic platter type drives, also known as HDDs (Hard-Disk Drives). So what is in store for the future?
In Part 2 of our series on data centers we continue to look at factors that need to be considered both by those interested in a dedicated data center and those seeking to colocate in an existing center.
In this series we’ll talk in general terms about the factors that an organization needs to consider when opening a data center and the challenges that must be met in the process. In Part 1, we look at the different types of data centers, the importance of location in planning a data center, data center certification, and the single most expensive factor in running a data center, power.
In this post, we continue our Veeam/B2 series with a discussion of backing up Veeam to the Backblaze B2 Cloud using StarWind VTL. Using Veeam, StarWind VTL, and Backblaze B2 cloud storage is a superior alternative to tape as Backblaze B2 offers better economics, instant access, and faster recovery.
Both file server and endpoint backup have their places in an organization’s data security plan, but their use and value differ. If you already are using file server backup, adding endpoint backup will make a valuable contribution to your organization by reducing workload, improving productivity, and increasing confidence that all critical files are backed up.
This past November, we published a blog post entitled What’s the Best Solution for Managing Digital Photos and Videos? in which we asked our readers to tell us how they’re currently backing up their digital media assets and what their ideal system might be. Here are their responses.
Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage supports CORS (Cross Origin Resource Sharing), which allows B2 customers to share the content of their cloud-based buckets with web pages hosted in origins other than B2. In this post we show how to set up CORS for B2.
In this post we provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to configure a Synology NAS as a Veeam backup repository, and in turn use Synology’s CloudSync software to back up that repository to the B2 Cloud.
