Ultra Secure IT services provider expands capabilities by partnering with leading object storage provider
24 JUNE 2014: Ultra Secure IT services provider, The Bunker today launches its Ultra Secure Object Storage Cloud service, designed for businesses that want to use public cloud data storage but can't. The new cloud service solves the challenges of security and compliance in the public cloud, whilst offering all the benefits of a consumption-based model for cost-effective storage of backup and archive data.
The Bunker's managed service, created in partnership with Cleversafe, brings object-based storage to mid-size and smaller businesses. This will provide reduced cost data storage for customers hand-in-hand with Cleversafe's market-leading technology, allowing them to take advantage of its scalability and inherent security, which encrypts data both in transit and at rest. The Bunker's service adds the highest possible levels of both physical and digital security, ensuring extremely high levels of data availability, as well as a guaranteed UK location for data within its Ultra Secure Cloud.
Philip Bindley, CTO at The Bunker comments: "IT leaders are faced with increasing challenges for data storage; the amount of data is growing exponentially and storage is consuming an ever-greater share of available IT budget. The cost and flexibility of public cloud storage have offered some respite, but at the expense of security and compliance for many businesses. We believe our Object Storage managed service solves all of these challenges for businesses, particularly in providing secure robust cloud storage that addresses data sovereignty and compliance requirements."
Cleversafe has been named a leader in object storage by leading analyst firms. Object-based storage separates metadata from object data, storing it all on one level, rather than as a hierarchy as with traditional file-based storage. This type of storage gives The Bunker customers an excellent future platform for growth, as well as the reduced cost advantages of consumption-based data storage with Ultra Secure protection.
Russ Kennedy, senior vice president of Product Strategy and Customer Solutions at Cleversafe adds: "We are very excited to see our storage technology being utilised as The Bunker's secure cloud solution. Businesses who utilise the technology will not only benefit from cloud storage that will allow them to grow cost effectively, but also that will keep information safe and available, even as storage needs increase."

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
