ChalkTalk Video: Introducing Enterprise Data As A Service

As IT organizations attempt to modernize, they continue to look for ways to offer more of their capabilities as a service. Good examples of this are software as a service and infrastructure as a service. The problem is one of the missing elements in the service model is the crown jewel of IT: data. Data is the information lifeblood of most organizations and it needs to be delivered as a service.

In the past, data was used by production applications, backed up by traditional backup applications and maybe, just maybe, archived. Now production data is used for test/dev, analytics and reporting. All of these use cases, including data protection, need to operate on the most current copy of data possible.

Click here to watch our latest ChalkTalk video “Enterprise Data as a Service“. Actifio Senior Vice President and Co-Founder David Chang and I map through why organizations need to develop a data as a service strategy and how to actually set that service up. After deploying a data as a service strategy, users can spin up near real-time copies of production data and have it seamlessly connect those copies to the test/dev, analytics and reporting as well as, of course, the data protection and disaster recovery processes.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
