A storage baker's dozen: We spill the tea on the firms, the faces, the dough

Who else will dish the storage dish?

What went on in storageland this week, you ask? Keep your saucer level, but we had Cisco saying its kit will be needed because the cloud is spreading, Delphix snuggling up to SAP, Zerto going even more multi-cloud, plus a good few smaller items.

Cisco Cloud Index Study

By 2021, 94 per cent of workloads and compute instances will be processed by cloud data centres and just 6 per cent will be processed by traditional data centres, or so says Cisco, at least. This isn't as bad as you think it would be for the on-premises world as a cloud data centre in Switchzilla's study can be public, private or hybrid.

By 2021, hyperscale data centres will support:

The study doesn't obviously suggest any measured split between on-premises and public cloud data centres.

Delphix adds GDPR capabilities to its SAP support

Database virtualizer Delphix has announced enhancements to its Dynamic Data Platform to deliver advanced algorithms specifically tuned for SAP data, able to mask full volumes of SAP data with a whole new level, it says, of speed, simplicity, and accuracy.

It said DDP can provide SAP customers with:

Zerto goes multi-cloud

Zerto Virtual Replication (ZVR) v6.0 helps organisations move and protect data between multiple cloud environments, including Azure, IBM Cloud, AWS and more than 350 additional CSPs, which means organisations have far more flexibility in which clouds they choose to use and combine at any one time.

This capability provides full and complete public cloud-to-public cloud disaster recovery and prevents organisations from being locked in to cloud vendors.

The company claimed it combines continuous replication, automated orchestration and enterprise-class scalability in a single platform. Enhanced journal file level restores support file-level recovery in both Linux EXT and Windows file systems which equates to faster restore times. Zerto Analytics has been enhanced in ZVR 6.0 to give customers visibility into the health and compliance of protected multi-site, multi-cloud environments.

These enhancements include expanded dashboards with new live network analysis reports for troubleshooting and optimization, insights into network throughput and performance, the ability to monitor site-to-site and outbound traffic and 30 days of network history metrics for any site.

With a new CSP Management Portal, CSPs will be able to remotely upgrade customer sites to provide them with continuous availability and latest software releases, it said.
