“The Windows Azure cloud platform can provide IT organizations with an affordable and highly available alternative to managing offsite backup storage repositories and tape backups. We’re pleased to work with Veeam to make it easy for small to mid-sized organizations to take advantage of the Windows Azure cloud.”

Jason Buffington, Senior Analyst for Data Protection, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)

“Improving backup and increased virtualization continue to be top planned IT investments in 2013, which is just one of the reasons for Veeam’s success. Veeam was among the first to directly address the unique protection challenges of highly virtualized environments, and they have demonstrated an appetite to grow beyond those first successes and continue innovating. Today, every IT conversation seems to have cloud-considerations in it. So it should come as no surprise that Veeam would be among the first vendors to pull it all together in providing a simple, powerful solution for copying VM backups to the cloud.”

Eric Sheppard, Research Director, Storage Software, IDC

"Many customers see offsite backup as a necessary component for their data protection and recovery strategy but stop short of actual implementation because they see acquiring and managing an offsite repository as too expensive and complicated. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition helps to address these types of barriers to adoption of cloud technology by making it easier for their customers to copy backups to the cloud.”

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software

“Small to mid-sized organizations now have a cost effective and easy-to-use alternative to tape backups and establishing an offsite backup repository. Veeam Backup Cloud Edition enables IT to quickly set up scheduled copies to the public cloud of their choice, and the software takes care of the rest, with regular reports and alerts that keep backup admins fully informed on costs and backup status. We’re proud to have set the standard in virtualization for modern data protection. With Veeam Backup Cloud Edition, we’ve raised the bar yet again with a solution that’s powerful, easy to use and affordable.”

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
What if, during a snow emergency, an on-the-ground sensor could automatically trigger a relevant emergency notification related to snowfall and road impact. And then, after it’s triggered, that notification is delivered intelligently to individuals based on an extensive set of rules designed to alert the most available and capable responders. This “what if” question about “smart highways” is short-sighted. We are already there, and we are only getting started. While mainstream attention is paid to machine-to-machine communications, new technologies are being developed to make these communica...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
