    094 – Stateful Apps with Kubernetes Is No Longer Just a Dream

    094 – Stateful Apps with Kubernetes Is No Longer Just a Dream

    Ionir CEO Jacob Cherian calls his company a “container-native, enterprise software-defined storage and data management platform for Kubernetes.” That’s a mouthful! And it might be hard to even grasp what all that means.



    That’s why Cherian had a talk with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. In this episode of “10 on Tech,” they discuss how Ionir’s product overcomes the traditional limitation of running stateful applications across containerized/Kubernetes environments.



    Stateless apps have always been easier to use with containers, but the necessity of persistent data for some apps has made architecture much more complicated. Using Ionir, that’s no longer the case. Listen in to find out more.

    Highlights of the show include:



    * The changing nature of data

    * The problems of data portability and persistent volumes

    * How Data Teleport handles Reads and Writes

    * The importance of minimizing Reads on demand

    * Improving the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) development model

    * The breakthrough of converting a storage stack into a microservices architecture

    093 – The Supreme Importance Of Understanding Your Data

    093 – The Supreme Importance Of Understanding Your Data

    You’re an IT admin. You’ve been tasked with expanding your storage infrastructure. You know that the cloud is the way to go. But there’s a big question facing you: what data do you have, and how do you sort out the most important data from the less important data? And then, how do you move it into (and out of) the cloud without breaking the bank?



    These are critical questions for data management, and they’re the focus of this episode of ActualTech Media’s “10 on Tech” podcast. Joining ActualTech Media Partner James Green is Krishna Subramanian, President & COO of data management vendor Komprise.



    They discuss the best ways to get a handle on the data explosion happening in most companies, and the best ways to increase efficiency and save money when migrating data to, and managing that data in, the cloud. If you’re looking to do this now, it’s an episode you don’t want to miss.

    Highlights of the show include:



    * Why companies are moving to a cloud-first strategy for data storage

    * Structured vs. unstructured data

    * How to properly migrate data to the cloud

    * Why manual processes for data migration are doomed to fail

    * The Komprise solution for data management

    092 – Prepare Yourself for ‘Phishing 2.0’

    Phishing is evolving. The bad guys are getting better at tricking end users and getting their information, and they’re starting to use more sophisticated techniques, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), to find and exploit more targets.



    The way to fight back, according to Patrick Harr, CEO of SlashNext, is to employ the same techniques to defeat them.



    Harr talks with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about how to do that on this episode of “10 on Tech.” They take a deep dive into the next wave of phishing, and how to protect yourself and your company against the newly emerging threats.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * How phishing is moving beyond simple email attacks

    * The dramatic increase in phishing attacks since the start of the pandemic

    * The reason ransomware often starts out as phishing

    * How SlashNext uses big data to spot new attack vectors

    091  – Minimizing Cloud ‘Sticker Shock’

    091  – Minimizing Cloud ‘Sticker Shock’

    It’s becoming an increasingly common story: a company moves some operations and data to the cloud, figuring all its problems will be solved.



    Then the bill comes. Heart attacks ensue. And just as swiftly, the company pulls back from the cloud.



    It doesn’t have to be that way, according to Dave Birmingham, Senior Technical Evangelist, SIOS Technology Corp. He chats with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about the proper way to move to the cloud on this episode of “10 on Tech.” They discuss how to not get burned financially, as well as advice on choosing the right cloud deployment and management options.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * The reasons companies fail in cloud deployments

    * Reserved and spot instances in the cloud, and how they can save you money

    * Cloud Availability Zones, what they are, and how they impact your operations

    * The hidden danger of cloud egress fees and how to avoid them

    * Backup and recovery in the cloud

    090  – Blurring the Memory/Storage Lines

    090  – Blurring the Memory/Storage Lines

    It’s the age-old IT tradeoff: the speed of memory, with its lack of persistence, vs. storage, which is slower but persistent. More and more, however, this tradeoff is being minimized, with new technologies offering the promise of both speed and persistence.



    MemVerge is one of the companies at the leading edge of this revolution, and they join ActualTech Media Partner James Green to discuss this growing trend on “10 on Tech.”



    MemVerge CEO Charles Fan and James pick apart the concept of “persistent memory,” what it looks like today, and where it’s going in the future.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * Distinguishing between storage, memory, and persistent memory

    * Why persistent memory is such a breakthrough for application performance

    * Intel Optane’s three “modes” of operation, and why they all have shortcomings

    * Top MemVerge use cases, including financial services and entertainment

    089  – The Cloud and the Pandemic

    089  – The Cloud and the Pandemic

    Coronavirus has taken a terrible toll on the world, and changed everything. On the IT side, one of the most obvious ways things have changed is the “new normal” of cloud computing moving to the center of operations.



    Even when business starts to return, there will be more remote work than ever being done, and it’s likely to be a permanent situation. That means a need for cloud solutions that foster remote collaboration.



    That’s the topic under discussion on this episode of “10 on Tech” with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. Joining James are two Panzura executives: Jill Stelfox, Executive Chairwoman & CEO, and Rich Weber, President & Chief Product Officer. They chat about what this new world will look like, and how to make sure that your users can effectively work together, no matter where they are.



    Highlights of the show include:



    * How the novel coronavirus has upended traditional ways of doing IT

    * Why things will never completely return to the way they were

    * Common myths about workloads that can’t be moved to the cloud

    * The necessity of making sure remote workers can be just as efficient and productive as those at headquarters

    * The solutions Panzura offers to get remote work done better
