Over the past few years, we've seen a slew of new data privacy policies aimed at protecting consumer data. The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, perhaps the most significant privacy legislation, went into effect two years ago.
Adhering to GDPR's complex requirements and handling requests are new challenges that many organizations have struggled since the regulation was first introduced.
In today's podcast, we take a look at what GDPR is, what it means for organizations, and how Aparavi streamlines GDPR compliance.
Defining an effective data governance strategy can be a major obstacle for many organizations. In today's episode, we examine the primary challenges of data governance and delve into common misconceptions about the process. Then, we explore why proactively implementing a data governance tool is so essential to your organization.
Finding data has always been a tedious process for most organizations. Finding the right file can be like finding a needle in a haystack, or, in today's enterprise world, a few hundred haystacks.
In this episode, we talk about why finding data is so difficult, what processes and tools can make finding files easier, and how The Aparavi Platform can help you find data quickly.
As data continues to grow at astonishing rates, most organizations don't know what data they have, how much it's costing them, and what risks this data may create.
In this episode, we take a look at why compliance applications matter to the typical enterprise. We explore the data challenges most organizations face and share how Aparavi addresses these challenges.
The average cost of corporate litigation has skyrocketed over the last decade. How can you reduce these costs so they don't damage your organization? In this episode, we discuss why a proactive approach to your data is essential and how a data lifecycle plan will help you stay ahead of the curve when it comes to legal requests.
During this global pandemic, a corporation's security and integrity should be leadership's top priority. Aparavi's Chief Evangelist Darryl Richardson explores the importance of corporate compliance in these difficult times and discusses how to prepare for a surge in FOIA and subject access requests.
Exponential data growth costs organizations a fortune to hold and manage and creates chaos and governance exposure. But it also creates incredible opportunity to utilize data for insight and profit. Current data management solutions are part of the problem – not the solution.
Join Darryl Richardson, Chief Evangelist at Aparavi, as he discusses the data challenges, best practices, and opportunities when faced with data growth, data governance, and data compliance demands.
Unstructured data is the fastest-growing segment of data within most enterprises today. This data set contains the creative output of the organization's employees as well as unique data captured by sensors and machines. Unstructured data is large in terms of capacity and number of files. It is also the prime target of ransomware. Organizations are paying hefty ransoms to regain access to their data.
Protecting unstructured data is challenging. Most organizations can't protect it frequently enough, and are unable to restore the data quickly enough. The problem is most data protection solutions are protecting unstructured data incorrectly. Data protection vendors count on image-based backups to bypass issues associated with high file counts. Image-based backups, however, sacrifice the granularity required to meet regulations like GDPR and detect ransomware. Being able to see inside all those files being saved, in order to either make intelligent decisions about the data or to put it to use in another way, is a critical new requirement for organizations.
Join Storage Switzerland and Aparavi for our live webinar to learn how to improve your ability to protect unstructured data while at the same time gaining insight into it.
Aparavi’s VP of Business Development, Jonathan Calmes and GigaOm’s Senior Data Storage Analyst, Enrico Signoretti, recently co-presented a webinar about how the right data management practices and intelligent archives can boost the value of data and make it reusable for new applications. Topics included:
Understanding data growth and diversity
Transforming a liability into an asset with classification and search
How to build efficient intelligent archives for data reusability
Applications that can benefit from data reusability
Think backups will have you covered if you need to recover your data for legal or compliance purposes? Think again!
In our recent TruthinIt discussion with Mike Matchett, Principal Analyst of Small World Big Data, our CTO Rod Christensen explains how to reduce risk when it comes to compliance and get the most out of unstructured data archives. Learn how Aparavi’s open data format can enable e-discovery solutions to read data without having to retrieve it from multiple storage locations.
Where do backups and old school archiving of formatted records (structured data) fall short in today’s big data world? What are the common and new use cases for an unstructured big data archive? How can we manage the scale of overwhelming unstructured data growth? And…how do we wring all the value out of that data? Listen to our short interview by industry leader Mike Matchett with Aparavi’s CTO Rod Christensen.
Regulations like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) are requiring organizations to rethink their data.
In “Talking GDPR and CCCA,” Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and Aparavi’s Jon Calmes discuss:
What IT should be concerned about when it comes to GDPR and CCPA
How these regulations affect current data protection retention applications
What your organization will need to change to remain compliant with GDPR and CCPA
GDPR has dramatically shifted the way we should be thinking about data management. Specifically, the Right to Be Forgotten poses an interesting challenge for your data archives and backups.
GDPR is not the only regulation that pokes a new potential hole in your data protection strategy. Many states and even the federal government are looking at similar regulations. The time has come to plan for data privacy in our data management.
In “Data Management vs GDPR and Data Privacy: How to Solve the Right to Be Forgotten Problem,” George and Victoria discuss the new problems caused by GDPR for your data management.
Truth in IT’s managing editor David Littman hosts IT Analyst Mike Matchett of Small World Big Data and our VP of Business Development Jonathan Calmes in a conversation about the challenges of managing unstructured data – capacity growth, protection, accessibility, especially in environments with both cloud and on-premises storage.
Truth in IT – “because video is the new whitepaper” – features unbiased informational and educational tech content in a digestible and dare we say entertaining format. We appreciate the chance to participate and hope you find it valuable.
Aparavi VP of Business Development Jon Calmes and Storage Switzerland Analyst George Crump. discuss the new problems caused by growth in unstructured data and why it needs new solutions.
George has written extensively on unstructured data protection, and we highly recommend taking a listen. He says unstructured data is frequently the most important information asset an organization can have, so traditional/legacy backup approaches aren’t good enough anymore.
According to e-ChannelNews, 85 percent of organizations in the U.S. and Canada employ a multi-cloud strategy. Aparavi's Jonathan Calmes spoke to Paolo Del Nibletto about the issues facing IT service providers in a multi-cloud world. Take a ten-minute coffee break (or kombucha break, if you’re in California), and listen here.
The Big Picture: It's no secret unstructured data is growing at an explosive rate. Add to this the complexity of multiple workflows, sites and cloud infrastructures—not to mention security—and you've got a recipe for trouble. You can't apply yesterday's legacy technologies to solve today's problems. They're inefficient at best and non-compliant or unsafe for your company's data at worst. In this short podcast, learn how Aparavi takes advantage of today's technologies and webscale infrastructure so you can manage a limitless quantity of unstructured data—regardless of how heterogeneous your infrastructure is.
The capacity requirements of unstructured data continue to grow at an alarming rate and the rate of growth is only going to get worse. Storing is problem enough but protecting unstructured data is creating a new challenge that most data centers aren’t prepared for. IT needs to act now to modernize its unstructured data protection strategy.
In this ChalkTalk conversation with George Crump, lead analyst from Storage Switzerland, and Aparavi’s VP of Business Development, Jonathan Calmes, explore how legacy solutions face several issues when dealing with unstructured data.
Unstructured data has changed dramatically over the past decade. It is not only bigger in terms of capacity, it’s also bigger in terms of quantity, there are just more files to deal with than ever. On top of the increase in size and quantity, unstructured data is more critical to the organization than it was in the past. The problem is that unstructured data protection methods haven’t changed much in the last decade.
In this ChalkTalk conversation, George Crump, lead analyst of Storage Switzerland and Rod Christensen, Co-Founder and CTO at Aparavi, talk through the problems with the current unstructured data protection methods and how Aparavi solves these challenges with its new architecture.
