It then introduces some of the changes happening to this legislation and concludes with recommendations for UK businesses to follow in order to not only comply with current UK Data Protection law, but also hypostatises on steps to take to future proof against future changes to the law and technology.

Why data protection law supports the use of managed security services

European data protection law permits an organisation to use a Managed Security Service Provider ('MSSP') such as Dell SecureWorks. Actually, not only does the law permit the use of a MSSP, but in many respects it also supports it, in the sense that good quality managed security services provide an enhanced level of security measures, expertise and awareness and enable organisations to make efficient use of their resources, thereby enabling them to achieve better data security and meet the requirements of the law. Download this white paper to understand the legal position IT is in and consider the characteristics of a good quality MSSP for data protection purposes.

How flash changes everything

Today, it is quite likely that your company is facing a growing crisis in storage. Accommodating exponential growth on flat spend seems intractable, and yet servers and networks have been getting exponentially faster and cheaper following Moore?s Law for decades. Storage has failed to keep pace because of mechanical disk. While capacity and cost have grown explosively, hard drive performance has been flat. As a result, the performance per GB of disk (its IOPS density) has been getting exponentially slower! Download this white paper to understand why flash memory is the key to resolving this crisis and how your organisation can benefit.

Is preventing fragmentation needed in today?s environment?

For years computing demands have been pushing along Moore?s Law. That ?law? is directly related to CPU computing power and states that the number of transistors per CPU doubles over certain time intervals (12, 18, or 24 months ? depending on when or where you heard it). However, in the new millennium the growth of data storage has been so rapid it is even exceeding the industry standard growth index laid forth by Moore?s Law (any way you define it).
