Modern Data Centers Require Data Protection Everywhere

first_imgData protection everywhere is a fundamental requirement of the modern data center – no matter where data lives, no matter what happens. But every IT organization is in a different place in their data protection journey – some are quickly moving to a modern infrastructure-centric model, where data management and protection are tightly integrated with underlying infrastructure and applications, while the majority of organizations are still using traditional backup tools. No matter where a customer is on this journey, EMC has them covered. That’s why we’re excited about our latest innovations, launched today at EMC World 2016.Global Protection Compliance Across the EnterpriseFor those employing a modern data protection strategy, we’re announcing EMC Enterprise Copy Data Management (eCDM), a pan-enterprise data management solution to address the $50 billion copy data problem. One of the biggest drivers of the copy data problem today is self-service copy creation without oversight, which is why eCDM will provide global oversight on copies while enabling consistent protection across the enterprise.

With DD Cloud Tier, Data Domain provides the most efficient long-term cloud-based retention by becoming the only protection storage to natively tier deduplicated data to the cloud. To learn more, check out the in-depth post on the EMC Community Network.EMC is also excited to introduce new VCE Data Protection Appliances – built with Data Domain and EMC data protection software – designed to cut deployment time by 75%. Following the introduction of Data Domain Virtual Edition last month, the addition of the new integrated data protection appliance means you can now get Data Domain however you want it – either as a target or an integrated appliance. To learn more, read the in-depth post on the EMC Community Network.Protect that SaaSMoving to apps born in the cloud – like Office 365 – doesn’t change the need to protect that data. In fact, it highlights the need even more because these applications are outside the company’s environment and control of the IT department. While a cloud provider might protect against a power surge, there are all manner of data-loss events, such as accidental deletion, that a cloud provider may not be liable for. Spanning Backup offers third-party cloud-to-cloud protection to ensure that SaaS data is just as safe as the files on a company’s own network. Today, we are extending Spanning for Microsoft Office 365 to include OneDrive for Business.The Industry’s Fastest and Most Flexible Protection Software PortfolioThe vast majority of data centers today are probably still supporting traditional workloads like Oracle, SAP and Microsoft SQL. Nothing can protect these workloads faster than EMC ProtectPoint and today we’re announcing that ProtectPoint now offers 10x faster recovery than traditional, as well as native integration with Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange; and support for EPIC.The EMC Data Protection Suite family spans the complete spectrum of consumption models and SLAs. Today, we are announcing two new Data Protection Suite offerings. The first is the Data Protection Suite Enterprise Edition, which offers all our best-of-breed software titles, including EMC ProtectPoint, EMC Avamar, EMC NetWorker, EMC RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines and more.  The second is the EMC Data Protection Suite for Applications, which is designed for app owners and database admins by combining ProtectPoint and DD Boost for Enterprise Apps.No matter where you are or where you’re going with your data protection strategy, only EMC can ensure your data is protected no matter what.Follow along with all of the news and announcements at EMC World on www.EMC.com and using #EMCWorld on Twitter.This release contains “forward-looking statements” as defined under the Federal Securities Laws.

Pol Calls on Schumer, Cuomo to Secure Bay Park Outfall Pipe Funds

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A year ago, Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano joined U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in Washington D.C. to lobby federal officials for a much-needed ocean outfall pipe at Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant in East Rockaway.Fast forward to today, the county is still fighting for the funding—estimated to be between $546 and $700 million—and is also trying to wrap its ahead around why $150 million in supposed federally approved funding for a nitrogen-removal system at the embattled plant never made its way into Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s state budget for this year.“We need some more financial assistance from our federal and state governments,” Norma Gonsalves (R-East Meadow), the presiding officer of the Nassau legislature, told reporters Wednesday during a press conference at her Mineola office. She added that she does not see a scenario in which the fiscally-strapped county could help pay for the cost of both projects.FEMA has already granted $810 million to rebuild and harden the plant, but Gonsalves called on Cuomo and Schumer to follow through on earlier efforts to secure additional funding for an outfall pipe that would extend into the Atlantic Ocean, effectively discharging effluent away from vulnerable waterways. Currently, effluent from Bay Park is dumped daily into Reynolds Channel, which connects to the Western Bays. As a result, Marine life and marshlands—which act as natural barriers and protect shorelines from erosion—are suffering from high levels of nitrogen in the water.Gonsalves said Nassau deserves its fair share of tax dollars, citing a recent study by the business advocacy group Long Island Association (LIA), which found that LI gives the state and federal government an estimated $28 billion more than it gets in return.That amount of money “would really fund 40 outfall pipes,” Gonsalves said, adding, “We need more of those tax dollars here in Nassau County.”An army of local lawmakers, environmentalists and state officials, have been calling on the federal government to allocate funding for the outfall pipe for more than a year, to no unveil. Last May, FEMA told the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation that it would not fund the project. That came after an aggressive lobbying campaign by local officials.Gonsalves said it was “disconcerting” when she read that Cuomo’s budget does not contain the $150 million thought to have been approved to fund a nitrogen removal system for the plant, which serves a half-million Nassau residents.Just days before the second anniversary of Sandy last October, Schumer released a list of all the projects that had been approved by the federal government, totaling $17 billion. Among them was a nitrogen removal project for Bay Park, paid for with a Community Development Block Grant, funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.On Oct. 28, Schumer visited the plant with HUD Secretary Julian Castro and highlighted recovery efforts at the plant. A press release announcing the visit said the tour would have a “specific focus on nitrogen removal” and noted that the plant “will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in federal Sandy relief aid, including funding though HUD’s Community Development Block grant program.”But, as lawmakers recently discovered, funding for that project was missing from the state budget.Brian Nevin, Mangano’s chief spokesman and his senior policy advisor, said in an emailed statement that commitments were made for the nitrogen removal system’s funding.“We continue to work with our federal and state partners to secure the funding for an ocean outfall pipe,” he said.Schumer’s office did not immediately return a call for comment as of press time. Neither did Cuomo’s office.Meanwhile, Gonsalves hopes to hold her first hearing on the issue in March. At the press conference, she said the two projects are vital to the future of the county.“Any legacy we leave should be an environment that provides for a clean and safe place for our young people to grow up in,” Gonsavles said.last_img read more

Coronavirus: Australian Grand Prix called off

first_imgThe Australian Grand Prix has been called off, two senior Formula 1 sources have told BBC Sport. There has been no official confirmation from F1 or governing body the FIA but the news follows a McLaren team member testing positive for coronavirus. The situation has rapidly developed throughout Thursday night in Melbourne but an announcement that the race will not take place is expected. The decision throws into doubt the rest of the Formula 1 season. F1 and the FIA have come in for criticism for their handling of the situation. World champion Lewis Hamilton said on Thursday at the official F1 new conference he was “very, very surprised” the sport had pressed on with plans to continue with the race while the outbreak of the virus worsened and other sports suspended or cancelled events. An initial meeting of team bosses with F1 and FIA officials on Thursday night, after a tense day in the paddock at Albert Park, broke up with an agreement to carry on with Friday practice as normal and review the situation later that day.But the plans changed later in the evening as several insiders – including leading drivers – expressed their concerns about the idea of racing amid the risk of further cases of coronavirus in the tight-knit F1 paddock.The decision was reviewed at later meetings and eventually, at around 0200 Friday local time (1500 GMT on Thursday), the decision was made to call the race off.In total, eight F1 workers have been assessed and tested for Covid-19.Seven were cleared on Thursday but an eighth, from McLaren, tested positive.Australian Grand Prix organisers said in a statement a ninth person had been assessed and tested, with the result pending. This person was “not associated with any F1 team, the FIA or associated suppliers”, the statement said.There is yet no sense of the knock-on effects of the Australian Grand Prix being called off, but the Bahrain Grand Prix, scheduled to be the second race of the season on 22 March, is now in serious doubt.A decision is also expected imminently on the Vietnam Grand Prix, scheduled for 5 April, after the government in Hanoi banned travel into the country for anyone who has been in Italy – among other locations – in the previous 14 days.F1 chief executive Chase Carey was in Hanoi on Thursday trying to find a way around the restrictions.The Chinese Grand Prix, scheduled to be the fourth race, was postponed in February after government officials said it could not go ahead.The Australian Grand Prix is the second race to be called off over coronavirus concernsRead Also: BREAKING: Man City v Real Madrid, Juve v Lyon matches postponedThere are now serious questions as to when – or if – the F1 season will start at all.The next race after Vietnam is scheduled to be the Dutch Grand Prix on 5 May, the start of a run of three races in four weekends that also includes the Spanish and Monaco events.But with the coronavirus situation developing by the day, and countries imposing tighter restrictions on travel, it is impossible to know at this stage whether any of those races can go ahead.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted Content6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?8 Addictive And Fun Coffee FactsThese Are India’s 7 Most Stunning Models9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo Advertisementlast_img read more
