Mengapa Backup Data NAS Lebih Baik di Cloud?

Menjaga data agar tetap aman bukan hal yang mudah bagi beberapa perusahaan. Terkadang, ancaman kehilangan dapat terjadi dan risiko pun tidak dapat terhindari. Akibatnya, penyimpanan dalam jumlah lebih sering kali disiapkan oleh perusahaan untuk memenuhi kapasitas data yang kian meningkat. Salah satunya dengan memanfaatkan Network Attached Storage (NAS).

Seperti dilansir pada artikel sebelumnya, penggunaan NAS sudah tidak lagi asing di mata perusahaan, baik Usaha Kecil Menengah (UKM) maupun perusahaan besar. Selain dimanfaatkan untuk menyimpan dan melakukan backup file, NAS juga dapat dialih fungsikan untuk banyak hal, misalnya sebagai file server, virtualisasi, web-server, video surveillance, sinkronisasi data, dan banyak lagi.

Karena banyaknya fungsi dan pemanfaatan NAS tersebut, banyak pelaku usaha tidak hanya memanfaatkan satu NAS saja. Satu hardisk hingga NAS lebih pun diinvestasikan untuk memenuhi kapasitas pertumbuhan datanya. Padahal jika Anda pikirkan, hal ini tentu lebih tidak efisien dan ancaman kehilangan data seperti kerusakan sistem, human error, serangan siber, hingga pencurian hardisk atau NAS, masih tidak terlepas dari penggunaan tersebut.

Lantas, apa solusi yang tepat untuk lindungi data di NAS?

Cloud untuk Lindungi Data di NAS

Memanfaatkan solusi Cloud Backup bisa menjadi pilihan bagi perusahaan yang ingin melindungi datanya di NAS. Dengan menyalin data di lokasi off-site, perusahaan pun tidak perlu lagi khawatir akan risiko yang mungkin terjadi ketika data hilang.

Memiliki kemampuan mencadangkan data yang bisa dijadwalkan baik per-hari, per-minggu, hingga per-bulan, Cloud Backup dikenal sebagai solusi yang lebih fleksibel jika dibandingkan dengan solusi backup tradisional lainnya. Perusahaan juga tidak perlu lagi berinvestasi hardware untuk memenuhi pertumbuhan data, karena penyimpanan Cloud Backup dapat diskalabilitaskan sesuai dengan kapasitas data yang dimiliki oleh perusahaan.

Manfaat Cloud Backup untuk Data NAS

1. Melindungi data dari kerusakan penyimpanan fisik

Seperti yang dikatakan sebelumnya, mencadangkan data di cloud berarti Anda menyimpan salinan data di lokasi off-site. Alhasil, data yang dicadangkan tetap akan terlindungi ketika terjadi kerusakan fisik pada penyimpanan utama, NAS, atau pada sistem IT perusahaan.

2. Aman dari ancaman bencana alam

Begitu pula ketika perusahaan Anda dilanda bencana alam seperti banjir, gempa bumi, dan kebakaran. Meskipun sistem IT perusahaan mengalami kerusakan akibat kendala tersebut, data yang dicadangkan ke cloud tetap terlindungi tanpa terjadi kerusakan atau corruption. Bahkan, perusahaan masih bisa memulihkan datanya dari cloud untuk mengganti data yang rusak atau yang hilang.  

3. Terhindar dari ancaman Human Error

Meskipun sudah sering terjadi, namun ancaman human error seperti menghapus data secara tidak sengaja masih tidak dapat dihindari, baik di penyimpanan lokal utama atau di NAS. Akibatnya, aset data menghilang dan berbagai risiko pun dapat ditemui oleh perusahaan.

Namun, Anda tidak perlu khawatir akan ancaman ini ketika mencadangkan data ke cloud. Karena dengan cloud, data yang dicadangkan akan terlindungi dari ancaman apapun, sekalipun penghapusan data secara tidak sengaja.

4. Pengguna masih dapat mengakses data yang sudah dicadangkan lama

Mencari data yang sudah disimpan lama seperti berhari-hari, berbulan-bulan, atau bertahun-tahun lalu memang mewalahkan. Apalagi jika data yang disimpan tertimbun dengan data lainnya, atau corrupt akibat penyimpanan data fisik mengalami kerusakan, pastinya pencarian data sudah pasti terkendala.

Berbeda halnya bila Anda memanfaatkan Cloud Backup. Dengan solusi satu ini, data yang dibackup sudah pasti terlindungi dari kerusakan hardware dan bencana. Selain itu, kapasitas penyimpanannya yang fleksibel dan bisa diskalabilitaskan memudahkan perusahaan untuk memenuhi kapasitas penyimpannya. Sehingga, data yang sudah dibackup sejak lama seperti beberapa hari, bulan, maupun tahun lalu masih dapat diakses pengguna.

5.  Alokasi anggaran lebih efisien

Bila Anda memanfaatkan penyimpanan atau solusi backup lokal seperti hardisk atau NAS, investasi hardware sudah pasti diperlukan oleh perusahaan. Terlebih, bila penyimpanan backup lokal sudah tidak lagi memenuhi kapasitas jumlah data, Capital Expenses tentu akan dikeluarkan perusahaan untuk pembelian hardware lebih seperti hardisk atau NAS. 

Berbanding terbalik jika perusahaan memanfaatkan Cloud Backup. Dengan solusi satu ini, alokasi anggaran perusahaan dapat dijalankan secara efisien mengingat perusahaan hanya perlu membayar biaya langganan cloud tanpa disertai investasi hardware apapun.

Memanfaatkan Arupa Object Storage

Cloud Backup seperti Arupa Object Storage bisa menjadi solusi untuk perusahaan yang ingin melindungi data NAS dari ancaman kehilangan. Kompatibel dengan S3 Protocol yang dapat digunakan dengan berbagai aplikasi, Arupa Object Storage dapat menjadi solusi untuk berbagai keperluan perusahaan. Salah satu contohnya ialah untuk backup data NAS.

What Need to Look For in Choosing Disaster Recovery?

What Need to Look For in Choosing Disaster Recovery?

As business evolves, utilizing Disaster Recovery is an important aspect for business systems and data to stay protected. By placing the safety backup plan on a secondary data center, enterprise can secure its business continuity out of the risk of downtime and data loss. Therefore, Disaster Recovery can be a solution for enterprise to minimize the loss of revenue, reputation, and all business data.

However, finding the right Disaster Recovery requires more technical level and the management experts to systematically meet those critical objectives. Moreover, not all Disaster Recovery capabilities are created equal. So, if your business needs to find Disaster Recovery solution, try not to focus on one cloud provider solution. Here are the tips to find the Disaster Recovery that your business needs:

1. Look for the reliability 

In requirement of choosing the best Disaster Recovery solution, a service which is highly reliable is supposed to be the important aspect that business looking for. This can be said as the failover service is going to take 24 hours before it starts to work.

Therefore, business needs to check that the cloud provider offers the high reliable Disaster Recovery. So, if your business experiencing downtime, the solution will be activated and begin to process your systems and applications.

2. Check the Flexibility

In this digital era, many businesses have turned to multi-cloud to optimize their IT environment. By adopting multi-cloud, IT departments not only can efficient their IT infrastructure, but also minimize the potential of hardware investment. That’s why this cloud model is often used for a solution for the company.

Disaster Recovery-optimized cloud is one of the popular drivers for multi cloud portfolios. But again, in looking for this solution, business needs to consider the cloud service provider who will work with you to customize the solution availability SLA. Thus, business will meet the flexibility in its IT infrastructure.  

3. Consider The ROI

 We all know, Disaster Recovery solution is a premium service and will cost more than backup and recovery services.

But still, calculate the cost of the service against business losses from a disaster event for true Return of Investment (ROI). According to enterprisestorageforum.com, when a mission- or business-critical application must be continuously available, Disaster Recovery solution will keep it up and running. This protects the organization from major financial hits, should a critical application be unavailable for hours or days.

4. Security Concerns

Besides reliability and flexibility, the security feature also has to be one of the concern for business in choosing Disaster Recovery solution. To counter these concerns, business needs to look for a cloud service provider which enables secure Disaster Recovery replication, failover, and failback.

Not only that, but business also need to determine if the offsite data center that the provider offers is physically and digitally secure, and that they have the certifications to prove it. The providers should also be in compliance with regulations like HIPAA to ensure the security for business.

Those are tips that business need to look for in choosing Disaster Recovery. If you need a further information about how to choose the exact Disaster Recovery solution for your business, you can join us on “Zettagrid e-Techday: Choosing The Best Disaster Recovery Solution For Your Business” on Thursday, 25 November 2021.

Understanding The Risk of Attack Surface for Businesses

Understanding The Risk of Attack Surface for Businesses

Reducing the risk of attack surface is essential, especially in small and mid-size business environments. By having a certainty that the attack surface has been kept as small as possible, the company has successfully satisfied the basic cyber security measure.

That’s why, understanding how it works and how it may rise may help businesses reduce the risk of cyber attack engagements and ensuring business continuity.

While most small and mid-size businesses may think that they are too small to become a cyberattack target, revealing how attack surfaces could penetrate the inner section of the business may uncover other company’s vulnerabilities, especially in term of IT network management.

Thus, understanding the IT environment and the element surrounding it in the business’s surface attack risks would be a good step to strengthening the defense. 

Primary Attack Surfaces

Before understanding the risk of the attack surface, it’s better to learn about the kinds of attack surfaces. There are two of them, devices and people.

Devices

As you may see today, businesses are getting familiar with Internet usage, allowing more and more devices to be connected. Despite the fact that it’s great for the company’s production management, it could be a gateway for criminals to enter, attacking the business while there’s a chance.

They usually have their most common weapons, Ransomware, and Hybrid Ransomware. Ransomware is already bad enough as the program allows cybercriminals to penetrate a device, take control of it, and demand a ransom from a user. Hybrid Ransomware works in a similar way but affects a greater aspect of the system. While Ransomware may affect one device, the hybrid form can affect the entire network.

People

In the common scenario, sophisticated cyberattacks usually target the weakest aspect in the digital security chain, which is the people. According to DBIR 2020 report by Verizon, almost 22% of breaches were caused by human error. Meanwhile, nearly 95% of cloud breaches also happened due to human errors, as stated by Gartner.

However, the must-have protocols usually revolve around password policies, and other safeguards usually can’t be found in small and mid-size businesses. This condition is making the risk rises higher. The situation is even worsened by the fact that 66% of people still use the same password combination despite their understanding of how important to change passwords for different accounts.

More skillful attackers also have a trick to use social engineering to gain access to networks from the employees themselves. What social engineering does is trick people to give in any confidential information about the company. Usually, the attackers would use some media like email, pretending to be a credible individual or an organization. Most workers who are still clueless about this can’t be able to defend themselves.

Attack Surface Management’s Essential Components

Now, to mitigate the risk of the attack surface while strengthening the data protection, there are some steps SMBs can do:

Discovery

The very first step of any attack surface management is to discover all the assets that have been used or connected to the internet that contains the company’s sensitive data, including trade secrets information.

However, the assets can either be owned and operated by the organization or third parties like cloud providers, suppliers, or business partners.

Classification Method

After the assets have been discovered, the next step would be digital asset inventory classification. This step includes dispatching and labelling the assets based on the properties, type, and how critical are they for business.

Ratings and Scorings

The attack surface management wouldn’t be completed without actionable risk scoring and rating. Usually, companies always have thousands or even millions of growing data. Without the security rating protocols, it will be harder to identify any security issues for each asset and whether they’re at risk for security breaches.

Security Monitoring

To offer decent data protection for the company, continuous security monitoring is always needed as a part of mitigating the risk of the attack surface.

Conclusion

Now, you’ve gained an understanding that SMBs are currently facing an ever-growing problem that could be unstoppable. But, with adequate knowledge of what key security measures are needed for better cyber security and actionable approaches to maintain the security, businesses or organizations will be managed to strive against the risk of the attack surface and successfully maintain their business continuity.

Bisnis Anda mungkin tidak bekerja selama 24 jam, namun network Anda justru terus bekerja sepanjang waktu tersebut. Itulah mengapa, ketika terjadi downtime pada network bisnis Anda, operasional dan layanan bisnis akan ikut terhenti. Jika tidak diminimalisir, downtime ini akan berpengaruh pada ketidakpuasan pelanggan serta hilangnya pendapatan bisnis. 

Oleh sebab itu, ketika mencari penyedia Cloud Managed Services, startup perlu memastikan ketersediaan jaringannya bekerja selama 24 jam. Dengan kata lain, startup perlu mencari penyedia layanan cloud dengan SLA 99,9% demi mengoptimalkan layanan bisnis Anda.

How to Develop Application on Cloud?

application on cloud

How to Develop Application on Cloud?

The massive adoption of Cloud Computing across businesses has proven us how beneficial this technology for industry is. By reducing capital investment in infrastructure and maintenance and ensure the availability of resources, the cloud is often the solution for business needs. Thus, it’s no longer strange to see enterprises more inclined towards cloud-based technology and rapidly hosting their system on cloud. Especially, when it comes to business application development.

However, developing business application on cloud is not as simple as you think. Instead, it has technical complexity and is challenging. The several challenges that need to be addressed by business, are:

  • Scalability: As you see the scalability of the product you deployed depends on the quality of the server. If you want the development on cloud to go smooth, then you will need excellent scalability opportunities to enable more users to manage it regularly. Thus, business will enjoy the higher profit of it.
  • Security: As it is stated before, developing application on cloud is not as simple as you think. Business also requires to watch their cloud security from the provider to avoid data breaches. To guarantee your companies utmost data privacy, business should use data encryption, ensure the cloud has SSL, and determine the provider with the trusted data regulation and compliance.

If business succeeds in obtaining those obstacles, then the development on cloud might go well for business. Therefore, this article provides three requirements that business need to prepare to obtain the challenge of developing application on cloud. Read them below here:

1. Development requirements

application on cloud

Before developing the application on cloud, you need to determine how its environment will work on cloud. If the dynamic scalability was the main reason for looking to the cloud, then its application should be engineered to take advantage of a parallel architecture.

Meanwhile, if it is designed with multi-threaded code that allows processing to be split into small chunks, it’s well suited for use within the cloud. On the other side, if an application is designed around single monolithic thread processing, it will be difficult to take advantage of the cloud’s distributed nature.

2. Application License

Most applications are made up of many different components that have some type of licensing agreement associated with them. If you want to develop it on cloud, you need to review each of those agreements to determine how that license will be affected by cloud deployment.

On the other hand, if your application uses a component that is licensed by CPU and you want to deploy it on cloud designed to launch new instances with more resources, you could easily exceed your CPU license limit. Therefore you need to review how your licenses affect the ability to scale by cloud.

3. Data Security

application on cloud

(Source: anyaberkut from Getty Images Pro)

As stated before, developing application on cloud also requires security to avoid any threats or data breaches. Therefore, these critical security components are important to prepare:

  • In developing application on cloud, its data must be protected. Therefore, the application must provide a mechanism to protect the data stored in cloud. Encrypting data can be the solution for this, so it will prevent data breaches.
  • According to TechTarget.com, server-to-server communications are typically forgotten because they only happen within the data center. You will require to ensure the security of each server or cloud instances communication, in addition to the client to server communications.
  • Whether you only need cloud for application development, data protection is needed either at application or the transmission level. Therefore, business need to determine if the SSL has included with the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols.

Any application can be deployed on cloud. However, those elements above are also needed to succeed the development. Especially, for Human Resources Information System (HRIS). Therefore, to help you maximize the simple and secure development of application on cloud like HRIS cloud, you can join us on “Zettagrid e-TechDay: Simplify and Secure Your HR Management with HRIS Cloud”, on Tuesday, 31 August 2021.

Adopting Hybrid Cloud Approach, Where to Begin?

adopting hybrid cloud

Adopting Hybrid Cloud Approach, Where to Begin?

Adopting Hybrid Cloud approach is becoming more and more common in a business sector. According to a survey of IBM Institute For Business Value (IBV), Hybrid Cloud will grow to 47% in three years ahead and the average organization will implement around six hybrid clouds. With such of number, it is not a surprise anymore to see how large this technology could dominant enterprise solutions.

However, adopting Hybrid Cloud approach certainly is not just by snapping-fingers only. A plan and strategy are also needed for a successful deployment. Therefore, before business takes a step further about it, the organization needs to explore more for adopting Hybrid Cloud approach. Then, where to begin?

In Zettagrid e-Techday: Evolving Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure For Your Digital Business that was held on 12 August 2021, Teddi Suryadi as Cloud Consultant Zettagrid Indonesia had explained some strategies that business needs to take on Hybrid Cloud adoption. Curious to know how is it? Here’s the recap:

1. Determine the application that wants to be deployed on Hybrid Cloud

Basically, any applications can be deployed on Hybrid Cloud. Depends on the organization’s policy and needs. So, if the organization wants its workload management to be deployed on cloud, then the provider will help and provide its cloud solution.

However, it is important to remember that business needs to determine what application that wants to be running on cloud and handled on the local premise. By separating workloads in two locations, the organization could achieve its IT business and cloud operation efficiency.

 2. Begins with the better infrastructure

After the organization determines what applications that want to be deployed on cloud, next it’s time to look for the right infrastructure such as software, hardware, services, and cloud spaces. But, why does business need these infrastructures for adopting Hybrid Cloud approach?

 These infrastructures enable business to secure consistent operations for business workloads across private and public cloud. Not only that, the right infrastructures will also deliver a complete solution for business Hybrid Cloud. Therefore, it is important for the organization to do this before adopting Hybrid Cloud approach.

3. Look out for the data security

In looking for Hybrid Cloud Providers, data security and compliance are often to be the main things that need to be concerned about. With the right data security and compliance, the cloud service provider can guarantee how secure your company and business data will be on cloud. 

In Zettagrid, we have data security and compliance such as PCI DSS certified and three-level of access (MyAccount portal access, vCloud Director access, and VM access). Not only that, but Zettagrid is also certified by ISO27001:2013 to secure your company data. Thus, you don’t have to worry more, because your data will be safe with our layered security system.

 

Those are the recap on adopting Hybrid Cloud approach. If you want to know or see the session further, you can watch it on our Youtube Channel here. And if you have any questions related to Hybrid Cloud solution, you can contact us here or at sales@zettagrid.id.
