Disaster Recovery Forecast: Cloudy with the Chance of Longevity


Disaster recovery (DR) is about preparing for and recovering your organization’s vital technology infrastructure after a disaster. Any event that has a negative impact on your organization's continuity or finances could be termed a disaster. This could be hardware or software failure, a network outage, a power outage, physical damage to a building like fire or flooding, human error, or some other significant disaster. While traditional disaster recovery options have been expensive, unreliable and time consuming, cloud computing makes disaster recovery affordable, reliable and fast. At Clearpath, we leverage the power of the cloud for various disaster recovery scenarios because it provides our team with the ability to finely tune the costs and performance of the solution to meet the specific needs of our customers. Keep in mind, disaster recovery does not have to be an all or nothing thing. Choose what needs to failover and what does not, some systems are more important than others for your business to continue operations.

7 Best Practices for Building in the Cloud


Imagine a man on a road crew was given the job of painting the yellow lines down the middle of a highway. On his first day he managed to paint six miles of lines on the highway; the next day he managed to knock out three miles; and the following day he was only able to cover less than a mile. Frustrated with the decrease in performance day over day, the company foreman asked the man why he kept painting less each day. The man replied "I just can't do any better. Each day I keep getting farther away from the paint can."

Hot-Sparing Rules for VNX2


As a VAR, Clearpath strives to add value through solid presales architecture, capacity planning, and design work as much as we bring our technical excellence to post-sales implementation and consulting work. Our multi-disciplinary approach allows our engineers to specialize in a specific practice (storage, virtualization, networking), while also bringing knowledge in one or more other areas, or teaming with engineers who complement us in another practice. You’ll see this approach as a customer, and if you were to pull back the curtains on our internal communications, you’d see the same interdisciplinary collaboration between our engineers. This is one of the ways we have of keeping us sharp on best practices, new techniques, and creative solutions to customer problems.
