E-mail Print PDF

Qumulo presents what it claims is the first "universal-scale" file storage system-- Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), a next-generation storage system able to create a single file domain spanning on-premises datacentres and the cloud.

QumuloDesigned to work to both own datacentres and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud, QF2 promises to provide enterprises with storage, management and access of file-based in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale. It uses cross-cluster replication to move data wherever it is needed, be it on premises and the cloud, with no limit to the amount files used.

E-mail Print PDF

LMNTRIX-- the latest brainchild of Carlo Minassian, founder of MSSP pioneer earthwave-- names industry veteran Ian Murphy as vice president leading its EMEA business.

Ian MurphyMurphy has almost 25 years of experience in both private and public sectors. His employers include the UK Ministry of Defence, Symantec and, most recently, DXC Technology, where he was lead security architect. In addition he also worked with multiple channel organisations, including CSC and Dimension Data.

“There’s such a strong desire in the channel to move into advanced threat detection and incident response services, but before LMNTRIX it was either too difficult, too costly or-- more commonly-- both," Murphy says. “What’s so different about LMNTRIX is that its offering is not only revolutionary from a technology stack point of view, but it is also evolutionary for partners as it enables them to take their businesses to the next level.”

The research shows 60% of contracts lacked well-defined, shared business objectives, leading to an unclear definition of quality of service to both purchasers and providers, as well as limited tracking and control on business and financial targets.

In addition, 90% of contracts had commercial terms and conditions with a "heavy" focus on short-term benefits, with few incentives for joint innovation and limited evidence of such initiatives.
