Azure Premium Storage users can now replicate their workloads onto SSDsMicrosoft is offering some Azure Site Recovery customers the option of using flash storage, rather than traditional hard drives for their backup services.Azure Site Recovery is Microsoft s flagship backup service, and now users of Microsoft s Azure Premium Storage will get access to SSDs, a move the company claims will boost the speed of cloud applications and their backup counterparts in storage.Premium If you are running I/O input/output intensive enterprise workloads on-premises, we recommend that you replicate these workloads to Premium Storage, said Poornima Natarajan, a Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise manager.CEO Satya Nadella At the time of a failover of your on-premises environment to Azure, workloads replicating to Premium storage will come up on Azure virtual machines running on high speed solid state drives SSDs and will continue to achieve high-levels of performance, both in terms of throughout and latency.EncryptionNatarajan also gave customers more information about the upcoming Azure Storage Service Encryption SSE for data at rest.SSE for Data at Rest will help customers protect their data to meet company regulations, according to Natarajan, with Storage Service Encryption encrypting data prior to persisting to storage and decrypting prior to retrieval.
Second, the firm unveiled an intelligent security bot that promises to simplify and streamline the work of corporate security operations.The company s announcement is well-timed given the burgeoning interest in bots, but CEO Slavik Markovich says the timing is coincidental and driven solely by customer need.The average security analyst has to access three or four different products and follow perhaps 10 steps in order to identify and blacklist a malicious file, said Markovich.Demisto s bot addresses this challenge by integrating with more than 30 security tools from companies like Check Point and Carbon Black to provide a unified interface that sits atop their software.Developing a sales and marketing team will be a primary use of the new investment.Based in Cupertino, California, Demisto s founders began work on their security chatbot in July 2015.The positive feedback on our collaborative interface was an ah-ha moment.The need for security analysts and the lack of workers with the right skill set can be addressed by chatbots like ours, said Bhargava.Available now as part of Demisto s Enterprise Security Operations Platform, the chatbot contains two intelligent functions with two more on the way.This prevents two redundant tasks from being executed.
