Topics: Disaster Recovery, backup, DRaaS, BaaS, cloud object storage

You may remember my recent piece discussing how you can use IBM Spectrum Protect’s new Stgpool Conversion tool to extract longer life out of your legacy storage. If you don’t remember it, then I recommend you go here to see what the fuss is about.

New backup challenges – the Office 365 conundrum

Posted by Thomas Cowley on 13-Nov-2015 10:36:07

Topics: IBM, backup, skype, VOIP

 

Microsoft’s utility-computing Office 365 offering takes email out of the corporate domain and places it firmly into the welcoming, low-maintenance home of the cloud.  This has triggered something of an unexpected data protection issue outside of email.  Bundled in the install of Office 365 is what was known as Lync, and is now renamed Skype For Business.  This is the Unified Communications (or UC for short) extension to email: instant messaging and voice over IP (VOIP), if you want to use it.

At the IBM Technical University in Prague, there were many fascinating presentations.
