    100 – Ransomware Is All About the Recovery Time

    100 – Ransomware Is All About the Recovery Time

    Here’s a fact you probably didn’t know: it’s not uncommon at all for a ransomware payment to be only a small portion of the overall financial impact of an attack. The bigger part, quite often, is the income lost by the business downtime.



    Mihir Shah, CEO/Co-Founder, StorCentric, believes that recovery should happen in a matter of hours, minimizing losses. He discussed the ransomware epidemic on this episode of “10 on Tech” with ActualTech Media Partner James Green.



    Do you have a comprehensive strategy for getting your company back on its feet after an attack? Are you sure? Do you think that ransomware insurance is enough to protect you? If so, this is a must-listen episode.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * How to protect edge data

    * The crucial ability to recover quickly from a ransomware attack

    * The difficulty of protecting data that can be anywhere

    * The cost difference between paying a ransom and business downtime

    * Why one successful ransomware attack can quickly lead to others

    * The drawbacks of ransomware insurance policies

    099 — Cloud-Native Application Observability with Chronosphere

    099 — Cloud-Native Application Observability with Chronosphere

    We are now in the era of cloud-native application development. And while this new paradigm has incredible benefits in terms of time to market, efficiency, and more, it ramps up the complexity factor significantly.



    With dozens, hundreds, or thousands of microservices comprising an application, observability is harder than ever, while at the same time being more crucial than ever. There are a lot of moving parts to track.



    That problem is the subject of this “10 on Tech” episode with Chronosphere. CEO/Co-Founder Martin Mao joins ActualTech Media Partner James Green for a fascinating discussion on this emerging topic. They chat about the challenges of observability in cloud-native environments, and why the “3 Pillars” of observability are starting points, not the end of the game of proper outcomes.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * What Chronosphere learned about app observability from Uber

    * Why it’s imperative that developers monitor their own cloud-native apps

    * Advantages of observability in cloud-native production environments

    * How cloud-native infrastructure complexity hampers observability

    * The “3 Pillars” of observability

    * How Chronosphere addresses the “3 Phases” of observability

    098  – Databases in the Public Cloud? Yes, You Can!

    098  – Databases in the Public Cloud? Yes, You Can!

    Believe it or not, there was a time when virtualizing servers was hard. Not so much anymore. In a way, that’s where we are with databases in the public cloud. It’s hard, and it can be intimidating to make the switch.



    When we look back in a few years, though, we may wonder why it seemed so hard to move data from strictly on-premises to off-premises environments.



    That’s the subject of this episode of “10 on Tech,” featuring a conversation with Chris Buckel, VP of Business Development for Silk. Silk calls itself the “database supercharger,” and helps migrate databases safely to the cloud. Chris chats with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about the current state of cloud-based data, and what the future holds. (Hint: it’s not as scary as you think).



    Highlights of the show include:



    * What “Cloud, Chapter 2” means

    * Why “anchor workloads” could be holding your databases back

    * The challenges of moving databases into the public cloud

    * The top pain points organizations have when moving data to the cloud

    * Primary drivers for choosing a public cloud provider

    * How Silk helps companies move their databases to the cloud

    097  – Why ‘Boring’ Is Good at the Edge

    097  – Why ‘Boring’ Is Good at the Edge

    “The computing edge” is a sexy buzzword right now. But is that really what you want as an IT admin? No—what you want, what you need, is infrastructure that just works, whether it’s on-premises or at the edge.



    That means your edge infrastructure needs to be reliable, especially in areas where it can be notoriously unreliable, and it needs to be run with as little administrative overhead as possible. Even if that means almost no overhead at all. In other words, the edge needs to be so boring that you don’t stay up nights worrying about whether it’ll suddenly go down.



    Scale Computing understands that, and CEO/Co-Founder Jeff Ready discusses how to make edge computing boring with ActualTech Media Partner James Green on this episode of “10 on Tech.” They chat about how computing is changing, and what you can do to stay on top of those changes, keeping your company competitive in the new computing era.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * Scale Computing history

    * What exactly is “edge computing” anyway?

    * The importance of “blue collar” IT

    * Identifying the most unreliable part of the infrastructure

    * Top considerations for doing edge computing right

    * Why hyperconverged infrastructure and edge computing are a natural fit

    * Security concerns for edge deployments

    * Extreme edge use cases and how to minimize (or eliminate) downtime

    * Scale’s No. 1 lesson for doing edge computing right

    096  – How Scality Helps Drive Cloud-Native Development with Object Storage

    096  – How Scality Helps Drive Cloud-Native Development with Object Storage

    If there’s one word that describes the modern IT era, that word is “complexity.” Applications, data, and its associated infrastructure has broken through its on-premises boundaries and moved to the cloud and the edge.



    This has massive implications for things like software development and storage. Apps are increasingly born in the cloud and housed in containers, using microservices and APIs. This ramps up complexity in a big way.



    These apps are consuming huge amounts of data, and the storage needs to keep up. Since object storage is incredibly scalable, it’s more important than ever.



    And making sure that object storage is fast and efficient enough to be used by these apps is the core of what Scality does. In this episode of “10 on Tech,” Scality Chief Product Officer Paul Speciale joins ActualTech Media Partners Scott Lowe and James Green to talk about the past, present, and future of object storage.



    If you’re using containers and Kubernetes in production, or are considering a move into cloud-native development in the near future, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * The emergence of “big data” applications

    * The shift toward cloud native computing and how it impacts storage

    * How storage is evolving in the direction of DevOps

    * The unique storage needs of containerized apps

    * The necessity of API-driven access and provisioning for storage in the cloud

    * The changing consumption patterns of storage

    * What’s behind the rise of object storage in the last decade

    * Looking ahead to the future of storage

    * Scality’s new object storage offering

    095 – The Next Revolution: Networking at the Edge

    095 – The Next Revolution: Networking at the Edge

    IT infrastructure has broken through. It’s no longer in an on-premises walled garden—data, applications, and hardware can live anywhere. That means new opportunities for business, but it also brings new challenges, especially when it comes to tying all these newly-disparate pieces together.



    That’s where edge networking comes in, and that’s the topic of this “10 on Tech” episode with ZPE Systems. John Paul Kang, ZPE Solutions Architect, joins ActualTech Media Partner James Green for an eye-opening discussion of how edge networking can transform your IT operations.



    Edge networking ensures that all your various systems can quickly and reliably communicate with each other, even if they’re thousands of miles away. It also allows you to update, manage, and maintain your network with minimal or even no staff onsite. It’s an episode you don’t want to miss.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * Edge computing vs. edge networking

    * Why businesses are moving to edge networking

    * Challenges in building and maintaining edge networks

    * Defining zero-touch provisioning, and its importance

    * Real-world examples of customers who have saved time and money by implementing ZPE edge networking solutions
