The Complexities of Storage Compliance

Time to create a strategy and framework for enterprise data

by Kurt Hildebrand | 06.06.14

We live in a hyper-connected world filled with business executives who are hyper-sensitive about data security. As they should be.

The healthcare and retail industries seem to be the most at risk. Since 2009, 29.3 million patient healthcare records have been compromised. With the growth of healthcare systems surging in 2014, so will breaches of data and patient privacy, according to industry reports. In retail, with a national chain’s 2013 holiday cyber-security failure still fresh in consumer’s minds, a major arts and crafts supplier confirmed that there was a security breach within some of its U.S. credit card processing systems between May 2013 and January 2014. That breach may have compromised about 2.6 million credit cards.

Should VDI be part of your move?

Benefits include improved security, productivity, cost savings and desktop management

by Eric Bruno | 05.22.14

With the desktop OS in transition, now might be a good time to take another step, to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Better security, compliance, and control are compelling VDI benefits.

According to a CIO.com report from a few years ago over 63 million people could telecommute by 2016. At this point, my sense is that estimate is low. While this level of telecommuting represents potential savings to enterprises (reduced office space and telecommunications costs, plus added worker productivity), combined with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, it does bring new risks. Security, availability, and reliability are at the top of the list.

Storage Modernization – Boost Performance & Save Money

Why Sensible Storage Matters

Get the Boost You Need and Save Money Along the Way

by Kurt Hildebrand | 04.14.14

There are two simple truths when it comes to storage: every organization has data they need to store, secure, and manage—and that amount of data is increasing every day. We live in the information age—and it’s revolutionized the way we do business. Data has become the all-powerful tool we use to better connect with customers, make smarter investment decisions, predict industry trends, and much more. So if data’s role has changed, why do we still use the same storage technology that’s been around for twenty or thirty years? Well, that’s all beginning to change.

Data Center - Cisco Servers

It's Time to Refresh Your Data Center

Take the Modern Approach to Servers with Cisco® and Intel®

by Justin Zuill | 03.28.14

Want to discover the health of your data center infrastructure in a single question? Call someone in IT and ask, “How old is our server?” Seems simple enough, right? But be ready to be asked which server you’re specifically asking about. Applications, storage, email—you may have several assigned to just as many tasks. And that’s part of the problem.

SSD and HDD Storage Drives

Battling Storage Demands?

Help is on the way...

by Louis Kaneshiro | 01.23.14

2013 has been an exciting year for technology. The cloud has been seeded, BYOD has gone B-I-G, and solid state drive (SSD) use is driving the future. With 19 years under my belt at Kingston, I’ve seen trends come and go. And don’t let the fact I manage Kingston’s SSD Product Engineering Department lead you to believe I’m biased—but SSD is here to stay.
