Druva Protects Corporate Data Outside the Firewall

Enterprises are increasingly using applications outside the firewall, with SaaS solutions like Slack and Microsoft Teams becoming increasingly important. At the same time, these applications attract just the type of corporate data (chat, files, and workflows) that can place organizations at legal or operational risk. They’re also using cloud-based automation tools like ServiceNow and Okta, and even running applications in Amazon AWS. That’s why it’s a good thing that data protection providers like Druva are adding support for this “outside the firewall” data. Stephen Foskett digs into their presentation from Tech Field Day in this piece.

LucidLink’s Clearly Different Approach to Object Storage

We have seen a few products crop up over the years that attempt enable use of object storage in nontraditional ways. These solutions usually use a VM or appliance that acts as a gateway or cache. While this type of approach is useful for certain use cases, it is not necessarily optimal for all. It is particularly ill-suited for the mobile and geographically dispersed workforces previously mentioned. Recently at Cloud Field Day 6, we heard about a new approach to leveraging object storage in the enterprise from LucidLink.


Taking Control of the Last-Mile Delivery

It was great to have Ixia return to Networking Field Day at our most recent event. In this post, Amy Arnold, one of the delegates at the event, digs into their newly announced IxProbe.
