The Future of Business Finance in the Cloud

Article Written by Avery Phillips

Among the many industries that have been revolutionized by cloud computing and virtual software services, perhaps unexpectedly, is finance. For businesses in particular, abandoning legacy systems and upgrading to cloud resources can significantly improve the efficiency and accuracy of financial operations. 

It's pretty much a win-win, reducing bulk (both in terms of on-site IT and time spent), and reducing a company's reliance on outdated software and expensive overhauls. 

Here's how it works, and what's in store as cloud services continue to advance.

With more organizations operating across physical, virtual, and cloud platforms, it becomes a challenge to IT departments to ensure the safety of the growing data across this cross-platform environment. To address this problem, Synology provides a new, all-in-one solution that closely integrates software and hardware for businesses of varying scale.  

Two new backup applications were announced by Synology as part of its Active Backup suite of packages: the official version of Active Backup for Office 365 that supports SaaS cloud backup, and the beta version of Active Backup for Business that provides data availability for workloads in physical and virtual environments. 

Active Backup for Office 365 employs single instancing technology to not only help businesses with the management and availability of Office 365 data, but also significantly lower the space occupied by backups.

Dropbox Pioneers Future of Cloud Infrastructure with SMR Technology Deployment

Grazed from Dropbox

Dropbox, a leading global collaboration platform, announced a new chapter in the evolution of Magic Pocket, its custom-built storage infrastructure. The company is successfully deploying Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) drive technology, which will increase overall storage density, reduce the company's physical data center footprint, and provide significant cost savings-without sacrificing performance or reliability. Dropbox will be the first company to test and deploy SMR technology at this scale.

Dropbox anticipates approximately a quarter of its Magic Pocket infrastructure will be on SMR drive capacity by 2019. In the coming months, the company also plans to open source the test software it created in the process, which will let other companies qualify SMR technology for their own enterprise storage environments.

ClearSky Data IT Leadership Survey Finds IT Leaders Embracing Hybrid DR to Manage 40% Annual Growth in Archival Data

Grazed from ClearSky

ClearSky Data, provider of on-demand primary storage with built-in offsite backup and DR as a service, today announced the results of its recent survey on the state of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). The findings reflect the experiences of more than 500 senior-level IT leaders. While respondents were enthusiastic about the potential for DRaaS to improve data protection strategies under limited budgets, the majority have no plans to move to a cloud-only approach, making a strong case for hybrid DR.

ClearSky's survey asked leaders in a range of industries where they store their data, how often they test their DR strategies, what level of data growth they expect this year and more. The findings confirm data protection remains a critical concern for enterprise IT leaders, who want efficient ways to protect all their data and remain operational in the event of disasters. However, despite cloud advances, 51 percent of respondents said they have no plans to move to cloud-only approaches. About the same number reported they are deployed in hybrid models today.

87% of ITDMs say Compliance Worries Prevent Greater Cloud use, According to WinMagic Survey

Grazed from WinMagic

New research released today by WinMagic shows that 87% of ITDMs limit their use of the cloud because of the complexity of managing regulatory compliance. A quarter (24%) said, it meant as a result, they only work with a single cloud vendor in their infrastructure, rather than exploit the benefits of a multi-cloud environment, such as cost effectiveness, flexibility, reliability, security and avoiding vendor lock-in.

Hands tied by management tools

The survey, which spoke to ITDMs in Germany, India, the UK and US, also noted that 63% felt the need to use multiple infrastructure management tools was also a hugely restricting factor in their use of multiple cloud vendors.

Looking specifically at managing security compliance across the enterprise, over a quarter (28%) stated they would "not be completely confident" IT systems met all the required processes and standards if an audit was called "today". 7% went as far as to say there was "a high risk of them failing."
