Public cloud expansion will continue to see double digit growth over the next five years according to IDC. Making the public cloud interoperable with on-premises solutions needs to be part of your hybrid cloud strategy for secondary data workloads. Legacy solutions, however weren’t architected with the cloud in mind. They require use of cloud gateways and don’t scale well in the cloud. Cohesity integrates with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform to extend your on-premises data protection solution to these public cloud services. Our built-in cloud capabilities give you flexibility to use the cloud for multiple use cases. Download the solution brief for more details.

Microsoft Azure is a public cloud platform featuring powerful on-demand infrastructure and solutions for building and deploying applications workloads as well as a wide variety of IT and application services. You can use Azure as a public cloud provider and as a hybrid extension to existing on-premises infrastructure. Organizations that use Microsoft solutions on-premises are able to extend their infrastructure and operational processes to Azure. With the growing popularity of Azure, today’s systems administrators need to acquire and strengthen their skills on this fast-growing public cloud platform. In this guide we explore the Azure public cloud platform with a focus on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) features. We cover general architectural features of the Azure cloud including geographic regions, availability zones, and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) attached to the core Azure IaaS infrastructure.

Regardless of whether your data resides on-premises, in the cloud, or a combination of both, you are vulnerable to security threats, data breaches, data loss, and more. Security is often cited as a concern for organizations who are migrating to the public cloud, but the belief that the public cloud is not secure is a myth. In fact, the leading public cloud service providers have built rigorous security capabilities to ensure that your applications, assets, and services are protected. Security in the public cloud is now becoming a driver for many organizations, but in a rapidly evolving multicloud environment, you must keep up with changes that might impact your security posture. This eBook outlines the three core recommendations for cloud security across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Compiling a cloud services comparison is a daunting task in the rapidlyevolving cloud environment. There are thousands of cloud services, dozens of cloud service providers, and numerous Infrastructure-as-aService (IaaS) providers offering pay-as-you-go pricing models—each one frequently changing and upgrading their portfolios. We have chosen to limit our cloud services comparison to the top three IaaS providers providing service in the Western Hemisphere—Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP)—because, not only are these the IaaS providers most organizations are familiar with, they are also the IaaS providers whose services most organizations are likely to compare. This eBook provides an introduction to the range of services offered by the leading cloud service providers, information on regions and availability zones, a breakdown of cloud storage services, and more, to help inform you on your multicloud journey.

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure. The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database. The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in
