Backup, cloud, convergence, GDPR, malware and server SANs are flavours of the storage week as we approach midwinter. These market areas are growing strongly while traditional SANs and hybrid arrays fall back.
Here's a snapshot of what happened, finishing up with a server SAN boost from Wikibon. But we start with a secondary storage convergence story.
Data - Silo - Converger - Cohesity - Region
Secondary data silo converger Cohesity entered the European region a year ago. It has stepped up its commitment to the region and appointed Klaus Seidl as VP Sales for EMEA, with the main objective of expanding Cohesity's activity there with particular focus on the DACH market (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

Compuverde - Hybrid - Cloud - V1 - Combines
Swedish Compuverde's Hybrid Cloud v1.0 combines software-defined storage (SDS) with the ability to synchronise two-way data traffic among multiple data centres.
It supports disaster recovery scenarios where snapshots from one data centre can be mounted to up to 16 different locations connected over the internet.
Partial - File - Updates - Network - Bandwidth
Partial file updates use minimum network bandwidth while maintaining complete synchronization between file shares at various data sites.
Compuverde's storage SW provides vNAS file systems, hyperconverged virtualisation and hybrid cloud support.
Players - Storage - Industry - Druva - Data-management-as-a-service
Some players in the storage industry are just booming. Druva, which offers data-management-as-a-service (DMaaS), says it has enjoyed record growth of 500 per cent in annual recurring revenue for its data protection service. This makes 10 consecutive quarters of double-digit company growth.
It has plans to increase its global workforce by 14 per cent over the next six months.
Company - FedRAMP - Certification - Prerequisite - Business
The company has achieved FedRAMP certification (a prerequisite for doing business with federal organisations), claiming that makes it the only one among its competitors to officially do business with US government agencies transitioning to...
