Cobalt Iron Awarded Patent for Techniques Enabling Management of IT Resource Use in Complex, Multitenant Environments
Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data protection SaaS, today announced it has been issued a patent (U.S. Patent No. 10133642) for its techniques for presenting views of a backup environment for an organization on a suborganizational basis. In short, the new Cobalt Iron patent discloses unique ways to manage and track IT resource usage in complex, multitenant environments.
Tape operations continue to play a significant role in data center operations, especially for data backup and disaster recovery. However, IT personnel have long been trying to simplify tape operations such as the management of tape volumes, tape drives, and tape libraries as well as tape-related disaster recovery operations. Read the full blog to learn more about how a new VTL offering can help to transition tape to modernized backup.
Cobalt Iron yesterday unveiled a new analytics-infused virtual tape library (VTL) solution that it says will optimize and bring IBM i backup and recovery operations into sync with the rest of the enterprise. The offering lets IBM i users back up their data to anywhere – including on-premise and the cloud backups, with automated replication in between — but without giving up IBM i-specific features delivered through existing tools like BRMS and native commands.
The ADP VTL feature is not a legacy stand-alone VTL appliance but serves as a software-agnostic tape ingest path for the ADP Accelerator. This first-of-its-kind solution is uniquely innovative because it transforms the VTL into an integrated component of an end-to-end enterprise data protection solution.
If I had to pick the two most popular IT initiatives that I hear most about today they would be automation and modernization. I find these two initiatives holding the top of the list in almost all data-centric organizations I’ve talked with. We want to be seen as modern and current, but we always want do things better, faster, and with less effort.
Cobalt Iron Inc. announces that its Adaptive Data Protection (ADP) Accelerators now support an even wider array of industry-leading storage platforms.
When it comes to data protection, what worked very well in the past to help the long surviving IT and the well-established business protect their mission-critical data most likely no longer works quite as well as it did in its prime.
A fair question to ask right now is if it’s even possible to deliver a cost-effective data protection solution, given all the complexities enterprises can face.
