094 – Stateful Apps with Kubernetes Is No Longer Just a Dream
Ionir CEO Jacob Cherian calls his company a “container-native, enterprise software-defined storage and data management platform for Kubernetes.” That’s a mouthful! And it might be hard to even grasp what all that means. That’s why Cherian had a talk with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. In this episode of “10 on Tech,” they discuss how Ionir’s product overcomes the traditional limitation of running stateful applications across containerized/Kubernetes environments. Stateless apps have always been easier to use with containers, but the necessity of persistent data for some apps has made architecture much more complicated. Using Ionir, that’s no longer the case. Listen in to find out more. Highlights of the show include: The changing nature of data The problems of data portability and persistent volumes How Data Teleport handles Reads and Writes The importance of minimizing Reads on demand Improving the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) development model The breakthrough of converting a storage stack into a microservices architecture Resource links from the show: Ionir homepage — https://ionir.com/ Get early access to Ionir — https://ionir.com/early-access-program/ About Data Teleport — https://ionir.com/blog/introducing-data-teleport-instant-data-mobility/ Why tightly-coupled containers and microservices are a must in achieving cloud-native storage — https://ionir.com/blog/why-tightly-coupled-containers-and-microservices-are-a-must-in-achieving-cloud-native-storage/ We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

091 – Minimizing Cloud ‘Sticker Shock’
It’s becoming an increasingly common story: a company moves some operations and data to the cloud, figuring all its problems will be solved. Then the bill comes. Heart attacks ensue. And just as swiftly, the company pulls back from the cloud. It doesn’t have to be that way, according to Dave Birmingham, Senior Technical Evangelist, SIOS Technology Corp. He chats with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about the proper way to move to the cloud on this episode of “10 on Tech.” They discuss how to not get burned financially, as well as advice on choosing the right cloud deployment and management options.

089 – The Cloud and the Pandemic
Coronavirus has taken a terrible toll on the world, and changed everything. On the IT side, one of the most obvious ways things have changed is the “new normal” of cloud computing moving to the center of operations. Even when business starts to return, there will be more remote work than ever being done, and it’s likely to be a permanent situation. That means a need for cloud solutions that foster remote collaboration. That’s the topic under discussion on this episode of “10 on Tech” with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. Joining James are two Panzura executives: Jill Stelfox, Executive Chairwoman & CEO, and Rich Weber, President & Chief Product Officer. They chat about what this new world will look like, and how to make sure that your users can effectively work together, no matter where they are. Highlights of the show include: How the novel coronavirus has upended traditional ways of doing IT Why things will never completely return to the way they were Common myths about workloads that can’t be moved to the cloud The necessity of making sure remote workers can be just as efficient and productive as those at headquarters The solutions Panzura offers to get remote work done better Resource links from the show: Panzura homepage — https://panzura.com/ Schedule a Panzura demo — https://panzura.com/demo/ Panzura industry solutions and use cases — https://panzura.com/solutions-now/ Panzura resource page — https://panzura.com/resources/ We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

088 – Moore’s Law Is Dead: What It Means for Storage
Moore’s Law, which held that processor speeds would double every 18 months to 2 years, is dead, according to Pliops President/CBO Steve Fingerhut. Because of that, the burden now falls on storage to provide the kind of performance that the current IT environment demands. Fingerhut discusses these issues on this episode of “10 on Tech” with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. What’s needed, Fingerhut argues, is a way to speed up storage and make it more efficient. He believes the answer is storage acceleration, which offloads the burden from the processor. Highlights of the show include: How the cloud has changed computing and application development Why processors can’t keep up anymore Where the bottlenecks really are now Why storage hardware acceleration is the answer to current challenges An overview of Pliops, and how its product works Resource links from the show: Pliops homepage — https://pliops.com/ Blog — https://pliops.com/unlock-the-full-potential-of-ssds/ Redis solution brief — https://pliops.com/redis/ Pliops storage processor solution brief — https://pliops.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Pliops-Storage-Processor-%E2%80%93-Solution-Brief.pdf Pliops storage accelerator overview — https://pliops.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/PLIOPS-Infographics-Overview.pdf Pliops whitepaper — https://pliops.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Pliops-Storage-Processor-Overview-2.pdf We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

086 – Kubernetes Grows Up
How is Kubernetes like the virtualization industry? They both got their start as niche technologies, but as their usefulness became evident, they started to get more mainstream adoption. That led to more development of the technology, extending it further, which led to more adoption, and so on. Kubernetes today experiencing a similar growth curve, argues Rancher CMO Peter Smails in this episode of “10 on Tech.” He discusses Kubernetes’ past, present, and future with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. Kubernetes, although it’s still a nascent technology, is rapidly gaining footholds in the enterprise as it’s the best way to orchestrate containers. With that growth comes the need to manage Kubernetes. You have options there, and Peter and James go into detail on what they are. Highlights of the show include: An overview of the container and Kubernetes landscape Why Kubernetes needs to be managed The top contenders in the Kubernetes management space Why Rancher’s solution is 100% open source and cloud native How Kubernetes is growing organically in the enterprise Resource links from the show: Rancher home — https://rancher.com/ Rancher learning paths — https://rancher.com/learning-paths/ Rancher tutorials — https://rancher.com/tutorials/ Rancher architecture — https://rancher.com/tutorials/ How to build an enterprise Kubernetes strategy — https://info.rancher.com/how-to-build-enterprise-kubernetes-strategy We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

085 – Don’t be Scared of Security
There are many things to be worried about these days when it comes to IT security. There’s so much to know that it can be difficult to even know how to get started. As ActualTech Media Partner James Green says in this edition of “10 on Tech” with Devolutions, doing nothing means possibly leaving an attack vector left open. But the risk of doing something, and doing it wrong, can also leave you vulnerable. That’s why security can be terrifying. Maurice Côté, VP Business Solutions, Devolutions, and James talk over some basic strategies companies can apply to build a solid foundation of security. They wade into topics like user access, passwords, remote access, and more. If you’re experiencing “paralysis by security analysis,” this episode is for you. Highlights of the show include: Applying the “least privilege” principle to user accounts Protecting against “spear-phishing” that targets specific privileged accounts Benefits of a centralized logging system What “account brokering” is, and how it can help keep passwords safe The crucial importance of secure remote access Resource links from the show: Devolutions — https://devolutions.net/ Devolutions Remote Desktop Manager — https://remotedesktopmanager.com/ Devolutions Password Hub — https://password.devolutions.net/ Top 6 Features SMBs Should Look for in a Privileged Access Management Solution — https://blog.devolutions.net/2019/09/top-6-features-smbs-should-look-for-in-a-privileged-access-management-solution 10 Password Management Best Practices — https://blog.devolutions.net/2020/04/update-10-password-management-best-practices 7 Kinds of Privileged Accounts that Organizations Must Secure and Monitor — https://blog.devolutions.net/2020/01/7-kinds-of-privileged-accounts-that-organizations-must-secure-and-monitor Privileged Access Requirements for Small and Mid-Size Businesses — https://blog.devolutions.net/2019/12/privileged-access-requirements-for-small-and-mid-size-businesses We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

083 – The ‘Keys’ to Proper Key Management
It may seem odd at first glance for a traditional storage company like StorMagic to branch out into the area of security—specifically, key management. But as StorMagic Chief Marketing and Product Officer Bruce Kornfeld explains, it’s actually a natural progression. After all, in this day of data being everywhere—on-premises, off-premises, in the cloud, at the edge—it’s more important than ever to encrypt that data, since there are so many more ways to get at it. And encryption, of course, requires keys. Kornfeld discusses the field of key management with ActualTech Media Partner James Green on this episode of “10 on Tech.” They also go in-depth on StorMagic’s key management product, SvKMS, and why it’s worth taking a look at as you improve your security posture. Highlights of the show include: What prompted StorMagic to add security, and specifically key management, to its offerings How to properly manage keys, including concepts like “rotating” keys and centralization The danger of management silos, and how it can impact your key management The drawbacks of hardware security modules (HSMs), and how SvKMS can help overcome those Resource links from the show: StorMagic -- https://stormagic.com/ StorMagic SvKMS Encryption Key Management -- https://stormagic.com/encryption-key-management/ StorMagic Free Trial -- https://stormagic.com/trial/ StorMagic Case Studies -- https://stormagic.com/resources/case-studies/ We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

084 – Proper Cybersecurity Starts With Getting Back To Basics
You know you need to implement proper cybersecurity in your environment. But how do you do that? Where do you even start? That’s the topic of this episode of “10 on Tech,” featuring Liam Downward and Michael Hogue of Data Spotlite. They discuss these issues and more with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. One of their central points is that you have to understand your own environment before going forward with cybersecurity solutions. That means, for instance, knowing where your vulnerabilities are, and then patching them. It also means knowing where your data is and reducing that footprint. Hogue and Downward stress that data owners need to take responsibility for their security, rather than relying on cybersecurity applications alone to do everything for them. It’s the combination of solutions and people that make your operations secure—not just an application. Highlights of the show include: The current state of cybersecurity for small and medium businesses How much more complicated cybersecurity has become, with dispersed data How the “new normal” of work-from-home has affected cybersecurity An overview of the Data Spotlite product, and how it can help you stay secure Resource links from the show: Data Spotlite -- http://www.dataspotlite.com/ Company profile -- https://www.linkedin.com/company/data-spotlite-llc “Zero Trust” security -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_Trust We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

082 – It’s Been 34 Days: Do You Still Have the Boss’s Email?
It’s the nightmare scenario for every admin: the CEO has deleted an email related to a multi-million dollar project, and needs it back. The hitch: he deleted it 34 days ago, and your Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider only provides 30 days’ worth of backups. Uh oh. This is an issue that organizations using SaaS applications need to consider, and far too few of them do. That’s why Dan Timko, Chief Strategy Officer, J2 Global, is chatting with ActualTech Media Partner James Green on this edition of “10 on Tech.” They dive into the hidden issues with SaaS backup, and why it’s imperative that you understand what your provider is responsible for, and what you’re responsible for. It may open your eyes. Highlights of the show include: How backup has changed in the SaaS era Why companies often pay less attention to backups for SaaS applications The options you have for SaaS backup The things you must find out from your SaaS backup provider Expense vs. company impact of SaaS backup Resource links from the show: J2 Global -- https://www.j2global.com/ Jim Cramer on J2 Global -- https://www.j2global.com/about/news/jim-cramer-on-j2-global-a-4-8b-digital-powerhouse/ More about J2 Global -- https://www.j2global.com/about We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

081 – A Question of Data Sovereignty
Thanks to regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), organizations are more aware than ever of the need to protect the privacy of customer data. And the GDPR is just the beginning: the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect Jan. 1, 2020. The problem is that knowing where your customer data even exists is becoming harder in the cloud era. XMedius, which specializes in helping keep communications safe (and compliant), talks about this burgeoning field on this edition of “10 on Tech.” XMedius’s Sébastien Boire-Lavigne, executive vice president and general manager, data solutions, dishes on the regulatory wave with ActualTech Media Partner James Green. They discuss the enormous complexities involved in tracking this data and keeping it secure, which helps ensure that you don’t end up on the wrong side of the regulations. Highlights of the show include: Why the cloud became the big game-changer for data sovereignty A breakdown of CCPA requirements How CCPA differs from GDPR What companies each regulation applies to—e.g., governmental organizations vs. private enterprises What rights the consumer has under these regulations Why understanding and controlling your supplier chain is crucial to compliance Resource links from the show: XMedius homepage -- https://www.xmedius.com/en/ Data Sovereignty: Do You Know Where Your Files Are? -- https://www.xmedius.com/en/blog/data-sovereignty-do-you-know-where-your-files-are/ Data Sovereignty: The XMedius Solution and Future Predictions -- https://www.xmedius.com/en/blog/data-sovereignty-the-xmedius-solution-and-future-predictions/ 5 Big Reasons Why Comparing CCPA to GDPR is a Bad Idea -- https://www.xmedius.com/en/blog/5-big-reasons-why-comparing-ccpa-to-gdpr-is-a-bad-idea/ California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) -- https://oag.ca.gov/privacy/ccpa GDPR -- https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

080 – Remove All the Bottlenecks!
Data center storage is evolving constantly, and one of the most crucial areas is in lower latency. Latency, after all, impacts everything in your operations. And cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) demand the lowest latency possible. Delivering that low latency can’t happen until system bottlenecks are removed, whether they’re existing, older storage, the CPU or some other reason. And Excelero specializes in that removal. In this episode of “10 on Tech,” Sven Breuner, Field CTO at Excelero, speaks with ActualTech Media Partner James Green about how Excelero takes advantage of super low-latency Non-Volatile Memory express (NVMe) drives to provide the minimal latency needed for the most demanding applications and uses you have. Highlights of the show include: The move toward using GPUs instead of CPUs for low-latency scenarios Why CPUs don’t scale properly NVMe devices provide more performance and parallelism The difficulty of scaling AI workloads to production levels A discussion of GPU Direct, a new technology from NVIDIA A look at NVMesh, from Excelero Comparing and contrasting local storage with shared storage, and its suitability for demanding workloads Resource links from the show: Excelero homepage -- https://www.excelero.com/ NVMesh -- https://www.excelero.com/product/nvmesh NVMesh Rack Configurator -- https://www.excelero.com/rack-configurator/ Contact Excelero -- https://www.excelero.com/contact/ We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

079 – Joe’s Cat Pictures Shouldn’t Be on Primary Storage
If you’re like most companies, you’re leaving the wrong data on the wrong storage. Data that isn’t touched often—like Joe’s cat pictures—doesn't need to be stored on expensive primary storage. But moving that data to much less costly secondary storage is a huge challenge: for both admins who have to move it, and end users who face confusing interfaces. Answering that challenge with a brand-new product is the focus of this episode of “10 on Tech,” featuring Spectra Logic’s David Feller, VP of Product Management and Solutions Engineering. He provides an overview of Spectra Logic’s StorCycle storage management software to ActualTech Media Partner James Green. Feller breaks down how StorCycle automatically identifies inactive data that takes up valuable space on primary storage, and moves it to a cheaper level called the Perpetual Storage Tier, keeping it accessible to users all the while. It's an episode you won't want to miss. Highlights of the show include: The explosive growth of data, that shows no signs of slowing The extreme expense of primary storage, and why it’s too valuable for all a company’s data to reside on How to determine when data should be moved from tier to tier The importance of ensuring a good user experience when accessing secondary storage The potential cost savings of adding a Perpetual Storage Tier to your infrastructure Resource links from the show: Spectra Logic homepage -- https://spectralogic.com/ Spectra StorCycle (including video) -- https://spectralogic.com/products/storcycle/ The Perpetual Storage Tier -- https://spectralogic.com/products/storcycle/perpetual-storage-tier/ Spectra Logic video resources -- https://spectralogic.com/products/storcycle/resources/#videos We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

078 – Ditching AWS for Render
You may think of the public cloud as an “easy” button, something that takes the pain out of application development, for example. The reality is that it can make things harder—much harder. That was the experience of Anurag Goel, Founder/CEO of Render, a unified cloud platform for building and running applications and websites. Goel found that it took so many steps to get anything done on Amazon Web Services (AWS) that he was wasting time learning things like Kubernetes and Terraform and building continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines, instead of building stuff. Goel chats with the idea behind Render with ActualTech Media Partner James Green on this episode of “10 on Tech.” He sums up his company’s mission like this: “We automate all of the stuff you have to do manually on AWS.” It’s a fascinating look into the power of automation in a way you may not have thought of. Highlights of the show include: How Render got its start The challenges developers and DevOps teams face with keeping infrastructure running The hoops a typical developer has to jump through to build apps on AWS The reality that many developers build insecure, unstable apps because they don’t have a functional, easy-to-use platform Resource links from the show: Render homepage -- https://render.com/ Documentation -- https://render.com/docs Render examples on GitHub -- https://github.com/render-examples Pricing -- https://render.com/pricing We hope you enjoy this episode; and don’t forget to subscribe to the show on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.
