Hitachi Offers Private, Public Cloud Storage
John Moore shares some details around new private and public cloud storage from Hitachi Data Systems .

“Hitachi Cloud Service for Private File Tiering lets enterprise customers move legacy data from primary networked attached storage (NAS) into a cloud solution. The cloud environment resides at the customer’s site and consists of three main components: Hitachi’s Adaptable Modular Storage systems, Hitachi Content Platform for housing unstructured data, and Hitachi Data Protection Suite software. The latter, provided under an OEM arrangement with CommVault, provides policy-based tiering of data from local NAS filers to the private cloud. A customer could set a policy to move data older than 90 days into the cloud, for example. Hitachi offers public online cloud storage through a partnership with Digi-Data Corp., which provides cloud storage solutions to OEMs. The arrangement lets channel partners provide cloud storage-as-a-service offerings to consumers and SMBs, according to Hitachi. Xu cited online PC backup as an example of a service partners can offer their customers.”

HOW TO: Better Serve the Social Media Customer
Maria Ogneva shares some social media and outreaching tips.

“Relationships and outreach: As a result of your social media listening, discovery and engagement, you will undoubtedly form relationships with other thought leaders with whom you can collaborate on content, form guest-blogging relationships, create podcasts, etc. I have started many of my professional relationships on Twitter, which have later led to in-person meetings, client relationships, co-creating content, consulting engagements, jobs, etc.”
