Why 385,000 PB stored on LTO is just the beginning.

On March 23rd, Storage Newsletter published an article that referenced the amount of LTO storage capacity shipped in 2015, and that the LTO capacity shipped actually increased by about 18% versus the prior year. These figures are based on a report that was published by the LTO consortium, and the report also indicated that more than 385,000 PB of total data capacity has been shipped since the introduction of LTO Ultrium cartridges in 2000.

VeeamON 2015: Veeam and Quantum Kick The Cartel

Las Vegas is the home for what’s going to be one of the biggest hotspot for determining the future of IT and data protection. VeeamOn 2015 is almost here. Quantum and Veeam recently cemented our Premier Partnership and we’re excited to talk about how we’re helping customers break free from old school, traditional ways of protecting data. That’s what Kicking The Cartel is all about. Storage companies will be all over VeeamOn, competing for your attention, showing off their latest and greatest in an attempt to be one step ahead of the rapid change in the way companies store data. And we all know the way people access data is changing – with access patterns and virtual workloads becoming less and less predictable. Customers need to have greater access to their data, and they don’t want to pay thousands of dollars per TB for a ‘one size fits all’ to protect it.

The Untold Stories Behind Security

The apparatus of security is something that can be easily taken for granted. We may grumble about taking our shoes off at an airport security line, or having our bag searched on the way into a concert, but we largely accept these inconveniences as the price of security. The infrastructure that is necessary to make us all feel secure in order to conduct business, travel, and live our lives freely is vastly more complex than many of us typically think about. At the ASIS International 61st Annual Seminar and Exhibits last week in Anaheim the world’s experts in security management gathered to share insights on what it takes to mitigate risk and maintain security. These are the guys who think about security every day and never take it for granted. Experts presented on topics such as “The Future Effects of Rapidly Changing Security Technology” and “Living the New Normal of Sophisticated and Determined Attackers.” I listened to the head of security at The Mall of America describe behavior detection and assessment, and how they have responded when the mall was specifically mentioned in a terrorist threat video. He recounted some specific successes you probably haven’t heard about because security successes don’t make the news – security failures do.
