BLOGBYTES 2021 YEAR IN REVIEWWhat was capturing the attention of readers during the last twelve months?
The year 2021 was a challenging year on several fronts from the relentless attacks by cyber criminals to the ever increasing amounts of data to protect and manage. In this BlogBytes we will review the top 10 LTO BlogBytes of the last twelve months based on readership. Have fun revisiting these gems!
IDC estimates that by 2025 there will be 7 trillion gigabytes of cold archive data — unprecedented challenges are faced by companies of all sizes. What role does LTO tape storage play in this so-called ‘Zettabyte Era’? What do the experts say? We got three of the best technology minds together in a straight-talk webinar to answer these questions and other thought provoking queries. Get the compelling answers to these questions and lots more in, “THE STORAGE CHALLENGES OF THE DIGITAL FUTURE – TAPE INNOVATION UNCOVERED.”
A company’s digital assets are of high value and protecting them is of upmost importance especially in this environment of cyber sabotage, data theft, email schemes and ransomware. In the number nine BlogBytes of the year we discussed key steps needed to protect your critical data. See it all in “ENCRYPTION- PROTECT DATA AT ITS GRASS ROOTS.”
Did you know it is estimated that within 5 years internet devices, sensors and cameras will be generating nearly 80 zettabytes of data? This affects the cloud, the fog, the edge and how data will be stored. A new white paper from Fred Moore at Horison Information Strategies discusses the next frontier for data generation and storage and how LTO technology will play a paramount role. We took a close look at the highlights of the paper in “WHAT’S THE NEXT FRONTIER FOR TAPE?”
The challenges faced by Hyperscale Data Centers and strategies to address them are discussed in an upcoming whitepaper by Horison Information Strategies. The number seven BlogBytes article in the top ten: “WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM A HYPERSCALE DATA CENTER?” gave a sneak peek at this enlightening paper.
Fires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornados and other disasters can cause immeasurable damage to an organization, its business and its customers. In the number six BlogBytes of the year: “FIGHTING THE UNKNOWN THREAT TO YOUR DATA”, we discussed how you can protect your data against unknown threats.
Earlier in 2021, the largest U.S. fuel pipeline was cyber-attacked causing a prolonged shutdown and a Federal state of emergency! This is one of many such occurrences of cyberwarfare on businesses and government organizations around the world. In this BlogBytes we took a close look at cyberattacks and outlined what you can do to help protect your organization against this ever present and costly threat. See the details in, “BEWARE – RANSOMWARE ATTACKS CONTINUE.”
2021 was a challenging year for many reasons, but in spite of this, it was also a period of many interesting stories and developments in the world of tape storage. We look forward to bringing you all the news and developments about the LTO Program and LTO Technology in our BlogBytes series of 2022. And hopefully, even getting the opportunity to meet face to face once again at a trade show or exhibition in the not-too-distant-future!
Watch out for the next BlogBytes coming soon!
