The Cloud and your business

Influential computing publication, The Register, has mentioned Bridgeworks in an article about the utilisation of Cloud technology for businesses.

While there are many obvious benefits to using the Cloud for business data security, it’s not all sunshine and roses. Journalist, Chris Mellor, looks at problems that come with data migration, namely latency and WAN optimization.

Mellor elaborates: “A bank, an insurer, a utility, a travel operation, has continually active files, ones involved in customer and supplier transactions. They can’t be simply shut down, copied over to the cloud in bulk, and then go live with cloud-resident compute processing. You can’t go offline for the time involved.

“In large-scale data migrations, a set of files to be migrated is first checked over for consistency, to make sure it can be read and copied. It’s then actually copied, and verified at the destination as well. Such consistency checks take time. One involving two million files took almost three days.”
