Hybrid Cloud Model

The global big data market has greatly transformed! However, it has also transformed the data recovery industry since the need for data backup increases.

The global big data market is growing at an unparalleled pace. As the big data value continues to increase, organizational dependence on it is also solidifying. This, however, becomes a problem when your data servers become inaccessible or when data is deliberately or accidentally destroyed leaving you with no option other than to contact a reputable data recovery company.

Big Data Increases The Need For Data Backups and Data Recovery

Big data is playing a vital role in virtually almost all aspects of our lives. Big data is incorporated into business models of almost every industry from residential construction, to manufacturing, to health services. Since big data is playing a key role in many aspects of our lives, most organizations are likely to face serious setbacks in an event that anything happens to the data that drives their operation.

This has increased the urgent need for data reliability. Many organizations today have realized that crucial data loss can have a crippling effect on their day-to-day operations. This has considerably increased the need for reputable data backup and recovery services.

Big Data is Enhancing the Effectiveness of Data Recovery Services

The key relationship between the evolution of data recovery and backup services and the rise of big data is two-tiered. While big data growth enhances the need for a secure data backup, it also provides new inventions that have been tested and proven to be very effective.  

Big data technology has made software developer create more effective data backup and recovery solutions stress-free. Big data technology is also helping with data recovery and backup solutions, hence making it easier to safeguard its own growth.

Organizations figure out the cloud technology and whether it would add value to their operations

Today, a number of analytics solutions are being developed in order to help forecast on the big data growth. These big data analytics algorithms can be industry specific. The algorithms are also able to deduce from their analysis that big data is growing slowly or faster in certain sectors compared to other sectors.

These data analytics helps organizations make timely decisions on the capacity of storage space they require for future data backup planning. This is particularly vital because organizations cannot rely on servers that cannot back up their existing data.

As data grows exponentially, organizations should ensure they upgrade their servers too to accommodate this growth.

Most organizations have started realizing that platform provided mechanisms are nearly inadequate for data backup and recovery. Most organizations have discovered that copies of remote disaster data are not sufficient either.

While it is crucial to have your data in the event of disaster or emergency such as fire, depending on the replicas only can create problems. Data is only updated periodically. It takes time to transmit it to a backup server and this is why it is vital not to rely solely on remote servers.  

Conclusion

While organizations figure out the cloud technology and whether it would add value to their operations, However. there is a new prediction that an on-premise backup combined with a hybrid cloud model backup will increase in demand. This is because organizations want to use the cloud, but realizes it does not have the fastest of recovery times.

Amazon’s Exit Could Scare Off Tech Companies From New York

Critics complained about public subsidies that were offered to Amazon and chafed at some of the conditions of the deal.

Amazon jilted New York City on Valentine’s Day, scrapping plans to build a massive headquarters campus in Queens amid fierce opposition from politicians angry about nearly $3 billion in tax breaks and the company’s anti-union stance.

With millions of jobs and a bustling economy, New York can withstand the blow, but experts say the decision by the e-commerce giant to walk away and take with it 25,000 promised jobs could scare off other companies considering moving to or expanding in the city, which wants to be seen as the Silicon Valley of the East Coast.

“One of the real risks here is the message we send to companies that want to come to New York and expand to New York,” said Julie Samuels, the executive director of industry group Tech: NYC. “We’re really playing with fire right now.”

In November, Amazon selected New York City and Crystal City, Virginia, as the winners of a secretive, yearlong process in which more than 230 North American cities bid to become the home of the Seattle-based company’s second headquarters.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo heralded the city’s selection at the time as the biggest boon yet to its burgeoning tech economy and underscored that the deal would generate billions of dollars for improving transit, schools and housing.

Opposition came swiftly though, as details started to emerge.

Critics complained about public subsidies that were offered to Amazon and chafed at some of the conditions of the deal, such as the company’s demand for access to a helipad. Some pleaded for the deal to be renegotiated or scrapped altogether.

“We knew this was going south from the moment it was announced,” said Thomas Stringer, a site selection adviser for big companies. “If this was done right, all the elected officials would have been out there touting how great it was. When you didn’t see that happen, you knew something was wrong.”

Stringer, a managing director of the consulting firm BDO USA LLP, said city and state officials need to rethink the secrecy with which they approached the negotiations. Community leaders and potential critics were kept in the dark, only to be blindsided when details became public.

“It’s time to hit the reset button and say, “What did we do wrong?”‘ Stringer said. “This is fumbling at the 1-yard line.”

Amazon said in a statement Thursday its commitment to New York City required “positive, collaborative relationships” with state and local officials and that a number of them had “made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward.”

Not that Amazon is blameless, experts say.

Joe Parilla, a fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program, said the company’s high-profile bidding process may have stoked the backlash. Companies usually search for new locations quietly, in part to avoid the kind of opposition Amazon received.

“They had this huge competition, and the media covered it really aggressively, and a bunch of cities responded,” Parilla said. “What did you expect? It gave the opposition a much bigger platform.”

Richard Florida, an urban studies professor and critic of Amazon’s initial search process, said the company should have expected to feel the heat when it selected New York, a city known for its neighborhood activism.

“At the end of the day, this is going to hurt Amazon,” said Florida, head of the University of Toronto’s Martin Prosperity Institute. “This is going to embolden people who don’t like corporate welfare across the country.”

Other tech companies have been keeping New York City’s tech economy churning without making much of a fuss.

Google is spending $2.4 billion to build up its Manhattan campus. Cloud-computing company Salesforce has plastered its name on Verizon’s former headquarters in midtown, and music streaming service Spotify is gobbling up space at the World Trade Center complex.

Despite higher costs, New York City remains attractive to tech companies because of its vast, diverse talent pool, world-class educational and cultural institutions and access to other industries, such as Wall Street capital and Madison Avenue ad dollars.

No other metropolitan area in the U.S. has as many computer-related jobs as New York City, which has 225,600, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Washington, Boston, Atlanta and Dallas each have a greater concentration of their workers in tech.

In the New York area, the average computer-related job pays roughly $104,000 a year, about $15,000 above the national average. Still, that’s about $20,000 less than in San Francisco.

Even after cancelling its headquarters project, Amazon still has 5,000 employees in New York City, not counting Whole Foods.

“New York has actually done a really great job of growing and supporting its tech ecosystem, and I’m confident that will continue,” Samuels said. “Today we took a step back, but I would not put the nail in the coffin of tech in New York City.” (VOA)
