How Cohesity can help in Legal IT

I have worked within Legal IT for many years and since I have been introducing new technologies into the UK & EMEA I look back at some of the issues I have been asked to find a solution for in previous roles. I only wish that a solution such as Cohesity was available while I was an engineer! This would have made my life so much easier while also reducing costs of licencing and complex multi-vendor solutions. There are so many use cases to list were Cohesity can solve problems that today’s IT teams face. Cohesity is an appliance based solution that comes packed with features and is a pay as you grow model that scales infinitely. I have listed some brief legal use cases that Cohesity can be used for. Cohesity is so versatile that it is not restricted to these use cases and can be used for many more....

The Changing Infrastructure Landscape

Considering how much I like the sound of my own voice, it may surprise readers to know that this is my first technology blog. It didn’t take long for me to decide that some thoughts on Software Defined Data Centre and the changing infrastructure landscape would be the subject of the first entry; after all, it’s Ethos Technology’s raison d'être (four lines in and already I’m sounding pretentious?!).

I’m continually surprised by how often tech vendors and analysts get caught up in debating what does or does not constitute ‘true’ software defined, whether it be networking, storage or something else; in my opinion this misses the point of what we’re trying to achieve with the next stage of data centre evolution. At the heart of the matter is a desire to move away from the stitching together of discrete, monolithic systems to distributed architectures; from imperative to declarative models of policy definition. There will always be a combined hardware and software element, where the line between them is drawn is largely arbitrary; the key is that a solution abstracts policy and requirement from the complexities of the underlying technology.

8 Things to Know About Distributed Systems

When people hear “object storage,” there is a tendency to dismiss it for some reason, in some form of “I don’t need that [yet]” or “I don’t understand it, so I’m going to walk away and dismiss it.” Unfortunately, this sort of action can stymie adoption of newer technology. Those of us that were implementing ESX in the 2.5 and 3.0 timeframe, circa 2007, ran into this quite a bit. Recently, a lot of the talks I’ve been giving have required starting with a certain level of education around what makes distributed storage different, how it directly relates to object storage, and how you essentially have to let go of a lot of the storage fundamentals that have been ingrained into your minds and thought processes over the last couple of decades. 1. GOODBYE RAID. HELLO RAIN Oh, RAID. Dear, dear RAID. We’ve all used it in one way, shape, or...
