Are you fed up with vendor scare-mongering about the challenge of complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the huge fines heading your way? UK-based organisations may be better off looking at the precedents set by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the body with responsibility for enforcing data protection in the UK. How the ICO has enforced the existing Data Protection Act (DPA) may provide guidance for the future.
Dedicated file storage is really an old concept that should be consigned to history. Object-based storage is the future – and can create a combined file and object based storage system, known as unified file and object (UFO).
File storage comes with constraints that are harming businesses – including built-in systems latencies that should no longer be acceptable
Object-based storage systems can hold files – but also provide solid business benefits through the global namespace
The theme of a recent Infosecurity Europe 2017 Strategy Talk, facilitated by Quocirca, was how to limit the ability of hackers to exploit the expanding IT attack surface created by the deployment of increasing numbers of IoT (Internet of Things) devices. The two panellists, representing the security vendors FireEye and ForeScout (the session sponsor), contended that a better integrated approach to network security was required.
There are three types of storage – block, file and object. It used to be the case that the decision as to which type of storage to be used in a specific case was simple – file storage was used for, well, files; block was pretty much used for everything else. Object storage was seen as being a slow, quaint, somewhat esoteric means of dealing with storage.
