Zyxel amplifies Nebula range - offers wider flexibility to move networking into cloud



 ~ A complete end-to-end solution to manage multi-site networks in the cloud ~

 New Delhi, June 30, 2017: Zyxel Communications has announced the expansion of its Nebula cloud networking solution. The new additions include a limited lifetime license, forum support, and new models and features. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and businesses at all levels will be able to find their best-suited cloud networking offering to boost both efficiency and productivity in managing multi-site networks.

Zyxel amplifies Nebula range - offers wider flexibility to move networking into cloud

Zyxel amplifies Nebula range - offers wider flexibility to move networking into cloud


Zyxel Nebula is a 100% cloud-based networking and management solution which centrally and remotely manages all Nebula wired, wireless and security devices with zero-touch provisioning from a single pane of glass – the Nebula Control Center (NCC).

Your partner in growth - a flexible licensing model:
For most cloud networking solutions on the market today, the entire network or cloud management service will be automatically shut down upon license expiry. Zyxel Nebula, however, keeps your network up and running with a baseline service, helping businesses smoothly get through any temporary budget cuts or snags during license rollover.

On top of the existing credit-based, on-demand licensing model, which gives businesses a predictable option, Zyxel Nebula is now providing extra flexibility with a new limited lifetime license offering. MSPs or businesses subscribed to the license will be able to enjoy a long-term, hassle-free service that doesn’t require annual renewals. Even in the event of replacing the subscribed Nebula devices, the service continues at no additional cost, which lowers the total cost of ownership in the long run.

The Nebula forum– where questions are answered and wishes realized:
The newly launched Nebula forum doesn’t just provide documents or information, it’s a place for users to engage and interact with peer Nebula users and Zyxel Nebula experts, get questions answered and problems solved with shared knowledge and experiences. It’s also a wishing pool welcoming new ideas that will be heard directly by Nebula developers.

A comprehensive portfolio to meet a wider range of scenarios:
A new range of non-PoE switches (NSW100-10, NSW100-28) and an entry level Nebula security gateway (NSG50) also arrived within the Nebula family to provide smaller businesses with an affordable choice to move networking into the cloud. For MSPs, the comprehensive portfolio also means extra flexibility to handle a diverse range of deployment scenarios.

“With the new additions and features to the Nebula family we wanted to simplify the challenges SMBs and MSPs are facing in managing networks across a wide geography,” said Crowley Wu, Senior AVP of Zyxel Networking Business Unit. “We are changing network management for the better and bringing fully featured cloud networking solution for those who have previously been priced out of the market.”

Why Cloud is important


Why Cloud is important

The business scenario is in constant evolution, empowering customers to access unlimited information at the behest of the omnipotent internet. The digital revolution has ushered in a power from the hands of business heads to the demands of customers as today highly competitive environment provides enough impetus of choice. Hence, a requirement is built for diligent insights into consumer behaviour, to get an added leverage. This, alongside the need for a comprehensive system that houses and collates the apt information, channelizing it to the optimal avenues, is what has brought innovations like cloud system into the foray.

The cloud has seen a remarkable growth in the last few years, owing to its rapid pace of adoption in place of older, industrial measures. If one follows the growth path of cloud carefully, he/she will be able to easily understand that the adoption of cloud services has seen a rise irrespective of the industry type and the size of business. Given its huge potential for different industries, verticals such manufacturing, railways, banking, retail, education and healthcare are switching to cloud services for optimized reach and performance as well as for elasticity and scalability.

Scalability and pay-as-you-go pricing models are the key benefit provided by cloud services to organizations for enhanced effectiveness through technology. Here are the key advantages of opting for cloud services:


1.Flexibility


Flexibility is the first advantage that comes to mind while elucidating benefits of any cloud-based system. Cloud-based services are idyllic for organizations with fluctuating bandwidth demands as it customizes its services accordingly. If the needs increase it’s easy to scale up the cloud capacity, facilitated by the service’s remote servers and vice-versa. This scaled level of agility provides organizations with untapped advantage over competitors –ranking ‘operational agility’ as a top driver for cloud adoption.

2.Disaster recovery


It is imperative for organizations of every size to invest on robust disaster recovery, but due to lack of pertinent capital and knowledge, this vital reinforcement is kept at the backseat till the disaster strikes. With the advent of cloud, organisations are opening their eyes to the benefits of a fool-proof disaster recovery system.  A cloud-based backup and recovery solutions saves time and money while avoiding large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as unnecessary expenditures.

3.Security


Loss of machines often set organization back by crores due to loss of not only the equipment but the sensitive data in it. Cloud computing provides greater security at such occurrences. Since the data is stored in an parametric environment, only those who have set the functions can access it, irrespective of what happens to the machine, wiping data from lost machines to prevent it from going into wrong hands .

4.Mobility


Lack of mobility is one of the setbacks that organizations are plagued by, as frequent business meetings and plans to move from one nation to other happens regularly. One cannot depend on a dedicated personal to operate cloud as the unavailability of the said person can cause a furore amongst inside management. Owing to the all encompassive and streamlined operations of cloud computing, one needs only an internet connection to get access to data, while working upon it. And with most serious cloud services offering mobile apps, one is not restricted to any sole device to get work done.

5. Increased collaboration


Often, operations and responsibilities become cumbersome to collate, especially in  organizations which are growing by leaps and bounds. A collaborated effort is needed from the team to complete various tasks in the least, in the tightest of time frame. This is where cloud system, with its flexibility and mobility, come of a great help. When teams access, edit and share documents in a streamlined fashion, they get an impetus to surge ahead with organizational goals in mind.

Conclusion

As companies rush to join the cloud revolution it has become vital to exchange older practices with further comprehensive solutions. Cloud computing is proving to be an asset that not only an organization, but the entire industry can safely bank on.

Commvault Simplifies Data Management in the Cloud with Launch of Validated Reference Architectures on AWS Cloud


o New pre-optimized cloud data protection model from Commvault enables customers to reduce cost, improve agility and speed deployment of Commvault Software on AWS Cloud
o Customers can add Commvault to applications purchased through the AWS Marketplace to easily direct data storage to specific AWS services
o Commvault customer Dow Jones leverages the combined power of Commvault Software and AWS to move more than 50 percent of infrastructure into the AWS Cloud

BENGALURU / NEW DELHI, India / SINGAPORE, January 24, 2017 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today launched new reference architectures for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable customers to simplify data protection and management with a pre-optimized, easy to deploy, and validated solution. Available through Commvault direct and on AWS Marketplace, the reference architectures provide enterprises with clear guidance on how the Commvault Data Platform can help organizations optimize their use of the AWS Cloud for backup, archive and recovery. Commvault also announced that existing customers can apply their licenses to applications enabled through AWS Marketplace. Additionally, customers will have the ability to easily direct data storage to specific AWS services – such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon S3 Standard – Infrequent Access (Amazon S3-IA) and Amazon Glacier.

The validated Commvault reference architectures with AWS further simplify hybrid infrastructure data protection for Commvault customers while also reducing cost, improving agility and speeding deployment of Commvault Software with the AWS Cloud for backup, archive and recovery.

“AWS and Commvault share a commitment to helping enterprises incorporate the cloud into their data protection strategies,” said Terry Wise, Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The launch of these new validated reference architectures from Commvault further simplifies the use of the Commvault Data Platform with the AWS Cloud for our joint customers, helping them to accelerate the implementation of data protection projects that lower operating and capital expenses while still providing reliable, secure and quick access to their business data.”

Dow Jones, a subsidiary of News Corp and global provider of news and business information, was one of the first Commvault customers to go through a business transformation workshop and review the reference architecture guide.

“Given our success using this cloud data protection model, I expect other customers to thrive using Commvault’s reference architecture with AWS to improve SLA’s for recovery, reduce infrastructure costs and eliminate tape management,” said Shaown Nandi, VP and Head of Infrastructure and Cloud, Dow Jones. “To date, we have moved more than 50 percent of our infrastructure into the cloud and with Commvault’s data management solution, have the flexibility to manage our data on-premise, in the cloud, or wherever we need it to be. Today, we have a resilient data protection model with improved SLA’s for recovery, reduced infrastructure costs, and no tape management.”

“Customers are increasingly migrating applications to the cloud, adding complexity to the existing infrastructure. Commvault’s improved reference architecture helps organizations to simplify and manage their existing cloud infrastructure, enhance data protection and minimize data duplication during backup and recovery processes.” said Owen Taraniuk, Theatre Vice President, APAC & Japan, Commvault.

Simplifying AWS Data Management with the Powerful Commvault Data Platform

As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner with AWS Storage Competency status, Commvault is a leader in helping enterprises solve data management challenges associated with the shift to hybrid and public cloud infrastructures, and is currently used by enterprises to manage more than 30 petabytes of data in the AWS Cloud.

From day-to-day backup and recovery to long-term archiving, Commvault’s single, unified platform simplifies data protection, while also delivering powerful data management capabilities, including:
o Indexing and cataloging capabilities that simplify data search and retrieval and speed up recovery.
o Automated, policy-based data movement between on premise infrastructure and AWS, making it easy for enterprises to store data in Amazon S3, Amazon S3-IA or Amazon Glacier or move entire workloads directly into Amazon EC2 instances.
o Support for petabyte-scale mass import that leverages AWS Snowball and drive shipping.

Commvault enables enterprises to apply the same data recovery and retention policies to data on AWS as data located on local disks or other devices. By extending Commvault’s security, encryption and deduplication capabilities to AWS, enterprises can lower costs and eliminate the need to build complex scripts, while also securing a single end-to-end solution that they can be used to manage all their data, anywhere, in any format.

Intel bets big on the cloud and e-commerce sectors in India



May 17 2016,  16.24 PM IST || Pocket News Alert

Keeping in line with the business direction adopted by Intel globally, Intel India today introduced its focus on offering Indian enterprises the enhanced technologies and products allowing faster and easier adoption of modern clouds based on Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI). The company is providing secure, robust, and high performing x86 platform for software defined data center solutions to its customers in the country, including the Intel® Xeon® E5 2600v4 family of powerful processors with Intel® Resource Director Technology and enhanced security feature.  These technologies enable customers to move to fully automated SDI-based modern clouds with greater visibility and control capability.



Complementing Intel’s leadership in the datacentre, the strategy to enhance SDI offerings is specially targeting at customers from the cloud, telecom, and e-commerce industry. According to Srinivas Tadigadapa, Director of Enterprise Solutions, Intel South Asia, “In India, changing dynamics, such as the growing number of mobile consumers and workforces, rise of pervasive analytics, and rapid innovation across industries have pressured businesses to move even faster for staying ahead or simply, staying alive.”

“Today, both cloud service providers and enterprises are looking at SDI as it would allow businesses to adopt new type of cloud easier and faster. India is a budding ground for startups, and most of these ‘cloud born’ start-ups prefer to hire software based services (xAAS). For enterprises, the need is different. To be able to keep pace, they must evolve to an agile infrastructure that allows businesses to remain viable – either expanding the use of public cloud, deploying their own private cloud, or both.  The result is pent-up demand for software-defined infrastructure. Intel is investing to mature SDI solutions and provide a faster path for businesses of all sizes to reap the benefits of the cloud,” he added.

Enabling fast adoption, Intel is offering new technologies and products including the 14 nm Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family with Intel® Resource Director Technology and enhanced security on workload isolation and faster cryptography.  For fast and reliable data access to the cloud, Intel has also unveiled new solid state drives (SSDs) optimized for the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 family, enterprise storage and cloud deployments. The Intel® SSD DC P3320 and P3520 Series are the first Intel SSDs to use one of the highest density 3D NAND technology to provide users with a highly efficient, dense storage solution.

Additionally, Intel has established deep collaborations with hardware and software vendors in India to create an ecosystem that can enable enterprises to efficiently deploy Intel’s enterprise portfolio, and benefit from its capabilities. Dell, a longtime collaborator of Intel, will offer product and solutions based on  Intel® Xeon® E5 2600v4 processors to enterprise customers, targeting at the traditional enterprise sector.

Endorsing Intel India’s approach to focus on the cloud-based and e-commerce customers, Manish Gupta, Head – Dell Enterprise Solutions Group, said, “The emergence of e-commerce sector and higher adoption of big data and analytics in India has increased the workload demands of the datacentre. To address these workload demands, with a focus on delivering end-to-end datacentre capabilities, Dell offers customers with multiple software defined infrastructure options by working closely with companies such as Intel, where Dell infrastructure, services and support are integral to the solutions. With integration of Intel® Xeon® E5 2600v4 processors into our server solutions, we believe that Dell-Intel collaboration will benefit customers seeking an integrated IT approach, offering simple deployment, management and scale as and when needed.”

“We believe it is now becoming an imperative for Indian companies to modernize the enterprise cloud infrastructure.  The leading services oriented economy in India will require businesses to operate with reduced IT costs while supporting the lines of business with new capabilities and faster deployment of new services. Technology and ecosystems are coming together in ways that are enabling enterprises to take immediate steps toward a cloud-ready future. True agility in the enterprise is possible, and leading companies are making changes now.” added Srinivas Tadigadapa.

Infor Survey Identifies Cloud, Mobility and e-Commerce as Focus Areas for Distributors



 April 20 2016,  10.35 AM IST || Pocket News Alert


Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that investment in cloud solutions will be top-of-mind for distributors over the next year, according to results from a recent survey conducted by Infor and third-party research organization TechValidate. The results show that 40 percent of survey respondents are very likely to consider investing in a cloud solution during the next twelve months, while 32 percent of companies polled are currently hosting technology in a cloud environment. An additional 14 percent confirmed plans to transition away from on-premise applications.

Infor Survey Identifies Cloud, Mobility and e-Commerce as Focus Areas for Distributors


As distributors seek to improve differentiation and reduce costs in an increasingly competitive market, using a cloud-enabled technology environment becomes a viable option to help mitigate IT-related expenses. Hosting applications in the cloud can also deliver the flexibility and connectivity, which can help to promote greater efficiency and agility in day-to-day operations across multiple locations.

"The cloud is important for distributors because the industry's shifting business model has brought about new opportunities for growth, but also a unique set of challenges," said Kelly Squizzero, industry and solution strategy director, Infor Distribution. "Migrating to the cloud can help distributors deliver maximum value for customers, because critical information, such as inventory levels, can be accessed in real-time from various locations. This can give decision-makers more visibility to help them make the best choices for their global or nationwide organization."

In addition to cloud computing, the survey found that 57 percent of distributors plan to invest in e-commerce solutions within the next twelve months, and 44 percent citied online sales as an important driver for business growth. Mobility was also a key issue, with 43 percent of respondents planning to invest in mobile applications.

Equipping users with mobile access can help promote greater workforce productivity by providing visibility into data at any time, from a WIFI/internet-enabled location or device. This can be particularly influential for employees who are frequently on-the-move, such as account executives or warehouse managers, as they can make and receive updates in real-time while away from their desks.

"Infor has improved our business because it allows us to integrate the entire process of inventory management, sales data and customer service, giving users the information they need right at their fingertips" said Jeff Bolton, IT manager, Sturgis Materials, Inc. "We are considering investment in cloud technology over the next twelve months because it will help us to further increase profitability by eliminating the cost of on-site hardware and prepare our company for future growth or expansion."

According to the survey, distributors continue to invest in Infor because the company is viewed as a trusted business partner whose applications can help to increase productivity and enhance customer satisfaction.

Manthan strengthens Cloud Strategy by refreshing its solutions on AWS



January 5 2016,  13.05 PM IST || Pocket News Alert

With the migration of its production stack to Amazon Redshift, Manthan reduced the operational cost of warehouse by 60% while increasing scale and elasticity




Bangalore, January 05, 2016: Manthan, a world leader in Big Data Analytics, has brought ease of adoption, scale and high performance to its customers with its continued focus on innovative cloud technologies.  Manthan, which began its association with Amazon Web Services (AWS) several years ago, and is currently an AWS Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network, has strengthened its cloud product offerings on AWS to bring customers an unmatched cloud advantage.




Leveraging AWS, Manthan has evolved a comprehensive cloud strategy that includes optimized data warehouses, enhanced data management and algorithms, real-time analytics and enhanced data security.




“In today’s fast changing and dynamic market, analytics plays a critical role in our ability to keep ahead of fashion and consumer trends. Partnering with Manthan for our Cloud strategy has helped extend the reach of analytics within the organization. Now, every decision maker has access to sophisticated analytics and actionable insights, at all times.” says Jay Nayak, VP of IT at Charming Charlie.




As part of its cloud strategy, Manthan has migrated its reference cloud production stack to Amazon Redshift. Once the migration was complete, Manthan experienced a 60% reduction in operating costs while also optimizing performance and scalability in terms of data and users.




Further, Manthan has optimized its products to run on Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) to provide an edge to both data management (ETL now runs 75% faster) and algorithms such as recommendation engines running on Spark. Manthan’s entire suite of prebuilt machine learning algorithms can now run not just on sampled data sets, but on large volumes of historic data in the shortest possible time span for precise insights at an optimized cost. Manthan has also enhanced its ability to ingest real-time events with Amazon Kinesis and serve real-time dashboards on demand.




With Customer Analytics, Retail Analytics and Supplier collaboration solutions running on AWS, Manthan’s customers experience an unmatched competitive advantage by gaining the ability to make decisions and implement change on the go.




With data security and privacy being a top priority, Manthan has ensured all its customers have their data fortified within Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) and private sub-nets configured to strict Network Access Control List (ACL) and security rules. Manthan also ensures the highest level of data security through strong data encryption for data in transit and at rest.




“Our goal is to overcome all barriers to the advanced analytics journey of our customers,” said Atul Batra, CTO, Manthan. “With the onset of the digital analytics era, we had anticipated that the market would require reduced cost of ownership and bare minimum infrastructure cost, in order to gain analytics capabilities. We enhanced our offerings accordingly and have been early adopters of the cloud strategy for analytics solutions,” he added.




The need for advanced, predictive and real-time analytics is prompting businesses to look for quick and easy analytics capabilities for enterprise-wide BI. Leveraging AWS allows for much faster, simpler, and more cost effective BI compared to traditional solutions. “Customers want quick paths to profit and we enable it for them,” emphasized Batra.  Many of Manthan’s clients have been reaping tangible benefits with the innovative cloud solutions the company has rolled out. Decreased historical data load times combined with a reduction in ETL times ensures that leading clients have reduced deployment times by over 30-40%.

Manthan will again have a major presence at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Convention & Expo that will be held January 17-20, 2015 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Meet Manthan’s Analytics experts at booth #3751 at the NRF Convention & Expo .
