  • Backing up NAS Workloads with Cohesity

    Backing up NAS Workloads with Cohesity

    In our data-driven world, Network Attached Storage such as SMB, CIFS, and NFS tends to account for a significant part of storage infrastructure.  The so-called "unstructured data" continues to grow at a rapid pace.  According to Wikipedia, Unstructured Data is defined as "Information that neither does not have a pre-defined data model or is not organized in a predefined manner."  It's a rather vague term, but in my mind what this really means, is all the stuff that we collect in our home directories, folders, and department shares.  It can range from text-heavy documents, spreadsheets, pdf files, audio, video, analog data, and the list goes on.  Regardless of how it's described, it's your data, it's still important, and needs to be protected.

    Cohesity's DataPlatform and DataProtect software includes NAS Data Protection that addresses this very need.  It provides full data protection that can backup and restores at the file level or entire volumes.  This software from Cohesity uses a simple policy-driven protection scheme and is very easy to set up and manage.

    The first step is to "Register Storage Array" as a source.  In my case, I am using a NetApp cluster.  Simply add the admin interface IP (or hostname) and corresponding credentials and wow, that was easy it's registered as a target.

    Once this is complete, Go to Sources in the GUI and you will see the NetApp listed with cluster name.  Click on the name and you will then be able to see and browse all the objects on the cluster.

    Again, for me, I have an NFS share in my "prod_svm" that is called Data_Share which I am looking to protect.  I click on "protect" and select that particular share and then create the protection job. One thing to note is that you can select the entire thing and have it auto-protect all volumes.  In this particular lab, I do not want to protect the VMware NFS stores…. just a particular volume with unstructured data.  My NAS policy is complete, and I let it begin to process and run.

    The job completes successfully, and I now have a backup of all the data on my NAS share.

    Now let's say, for instance, I lost a very important file.  It's not in the local NetApp snapshot, it's been corrupted for a while…. choose your scenario.  At the main Cohesity UI, I can pick "Recover" and then "Files and Folders" and with a simple query, all my files are listed that we're backed up.  With Cohesity's search function, it's very easy to search for names or types of files to restore.

    In this example, I've lost "file005.bin" and so with a single mouse click I can then download the file and keep on working.

    Of course, it doesn't have to end there with a local copy.  With Cohesity, it's possible to add external targets to easily replicate the data to another site or archive it to another NAS, and of course, send it to the cloud as well.

    Now imagine, if you will, that we had some catastrophic event that caused both of my controllers in the NetApp to crash, burn, or self-destruct.  Wouldn't it be awesome if I could just mount that same data volume on my backup device and have users access it there?With Cohesity, I can recover that entire volume as a "Cohesity View" which in simple terms is nothing more than a NAS mount for CIFS and/or NFS.

    With a few clicks, I now have my volume that was backed up to the Cohesity, running on the Cohesity DataPlatform with a usable mount point.  I can hop on over to my Linux box and mount this as an NFS share and keep on working.

    So…. take some time and investigate this next generation of backup technology.  The Cohesity DataPlatform and DataProtect software offer a simple and convenient way to protect unstructured data, especially in a NAS environment.

    Q: It what areas has H.A. helped transform your business?

    DL: H.A. has helped Listrak in a number of areas as we went through rapid growth.  Their engineers became an extension of the Listrak IT staff until we could bring the necessary technical skills in house.  Listrak is always researching and testing new technologies, and we’ve found H.A. to be an early adopter of the new technologies we are considering.

    Q: What do you predict your team will be working on in the next 3-5 years?

    DL: I anticipate over the next 3 – 5 years that IT departments will continue to mature their DevOps roles and will need to further embrace software driven infrastructure solutions.  The lines between the software development teams and infrastructure teams will become less rigid.

    DL: Steve’s the best!

  • CIO Spotlight: Harvey Guindi, Health Network Laboratories, LP

    CIO Spotlight: Harvey Guindi, Health Network Laboratories, LP

    October 11th, 2019
    Read More

    The High Availability, Inc. team has worked with a lot of incredibly talented IT professionals over the last 19 (almost 20!) years. To celebrate our customers and their achievements, we will be highlighting a CIO from our network each quarter!

    For our first CIO spotlight, we had the opportunity to sit down with Harvey Guindi, CIO of Health Network Laboratories, LP....

     

    Q: Where did you go to school? And what did you study?

    HG: I studied Computer Science at California State University, Fullerton.

     

    Q: Did you always want to work in IT? What sparked your interest?

    HG: Very early on in life, I knew I wanted to continue to work with, study and use computers and technology in my career.  Though how I started and ended up is very different.  My first introduction to computers was on an Apple IIe learning BASIC programming in the computer club in my Junior High School. I was hooked from that point, I spent as much time learning and getting access to computers, including joining the computer club and even taking summer school computer and math classes.  Initially my interest was in playing and creating games.  I remember using computer magazine that published BASIC code and writing that into the computer to create a game, and later I created some of my own programs and simple games.  My dream was to ultimately study computer programing to design and produce my own games, I wanted to be the next Richard Garriott (Lord British from Ultima / Origin fame).  Once I started school and entered the school of engineering in the Computer Science department, I quickly realized no one was teaching anything about creating games or interactive experiences, it was one accounting, HR or database type assignment after another, switching from Assembly language, to ADA, to Pascal, to C, etc. just learning data structure and other logic principles.  This was disheartening as I realized college had no mechanism (at that time in the early/mid 90s) for an electronic entertainment computer science program.

    Even in school (in my first year), my talent was immediately identified, and I was recruited to work for the Dean of the School of Humanities to Design, setup, and support social science research computer labs.  I was the only freshman that was also a staff member of the school. I worked to support graduate students in their use of computers and statistical software tools.  I created programs for accessing the shared computer labs that were sold in the school book store as well as provided personal support for the faculty across the entire campus.

    When I finished school, I took a job as a junior engineer with a company that wrote custom printer drivers for Windows. My task was to identify defects and bugs and provide patch updates.  I did this for a few months until one of the main support people went on maternity leave, as I was the most junior person in the company I was placed on the support lines to take her place.  My troubleshooting and support abilities were beyond anyone else in the group, and even when this person returned I was asked to stay in the support role, which was not something that was going to move me forward, so I left.

    Since then I have taken progressive roles in the IT (operations/infrastructure/network) roles, especially as open systems and networks took off (first with Netware, then NT, etc.)  I built upon each successive role to achieve technical lead status, to team lead, to manager, director, and ultimately CIO.  My background in both development, support, networking and architecture along with the leadership skills I have built, have given me a unique perspective and have been the primary purpose of my continued success, bridging both the technical and the business side of the role of a CIO.

     

    Q: Tell us about your organization…

    HG: Health Network Laboratories, LP is a regional diagnostic and anatomic pathology healthcare provider.  We serve 30+ hospitals and over 10K unique clients in the PA and NJ markets. I have been with HNL for six years in the CIO role. I lead a team of 50 that covers everything from Helpdesk, Enterprise Architecture, Clinical Applications, Project Management, Client solutions, Engineering, and Information Security.

     

    Q: What technology or business initiatives will be most important in driving your IT objectives for the next year?

    HG: Most important technologies that will drive our objectives are those that optimize, automate, and ultimately positively impact our customer experience.  I have started an initiative within the organization that looks at every project backwards from how it can positively impact our customers.  Some of the technologies that will be of focus this year include: Expanding our use of RPA (Robotic Process Automation), Ai (specifically in chat/self-service/scheduling bots), including omni-channel call center solution and mobile applications.  One of the most impactful design approaches is based on EDA (Event Driven Architecture), we have moved away from transactional or batch-based data focused integration to a more demand (and predictive) event-driven model.  The idea behind this is to use every application, every tool, every data element as a “sensor”.  So one example is the kiosk we have in our patient service center where customers sign in.  If we watch these and see that there are five or more sign-ins in a five-minute window, we take that even and send a dispatch alert to the nearest mobile phlebotomist (using their field service tool) to have them go to the location to provide additional support to maintain our 15 minute service time window.

     

    Q: What does a typical day look like for you? How do you keep yourself productive?

    HG: A typical day for me includes many meetings; it is an integral part of a CIOs role, which is to communicate, both tactical and strategic planning and vision with leadership and frontline staff.  I look for opportunities that can positively impact human experiences both for our internal and external customers.  For example today I learned of a manual process that was fine when it dealt with 5-10 items per day, that queue has grown to 50+, this spawned an investigation that highlighted a potential for integration and automating that task.  I look to free humans from mundane tasks so they can increase and magnify their role and contributions.

     

    Q: What roles or skills are you having difficulty filling – if any?

    HG: We are often challenged with finding individuals who look past their defined job descriptions and have a desire to contribute well beyond a specialized task.  When we have such individuals on our team, we are adaptable, which is far more beneficial and valuable than being efficient because you can be efficient, but when that process or task is no longer needed, and you can’t change, you become a liability vs. an asset.

     

    Q: What advice would you give aspiring CIOs?

    HG: Any aspiring CIO needs to have a solid technical foundation and a deep desire to understand and become authoritative in the business process for whatever industry they are in.  You can’t just have one or the other and be as successful as your organization needs you to be.  I would also suggest my three simple rules as outlined in this article: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/my-three-simple-rules-effective-leadership-harvey-guindi/

     

    Q: What is your proudest professional accomplishment so far?

    HG: My proudest professional accomplishment has to be the people I have helped lead and develop and the success they have achieved.  I have been blessed to have a tremendously loyal and hardworking team, and to me a team’s primary definition is that each person looks out for each other, this spirit of freedom and responsibility and the culture we have developed and how it has permeated from within the IS team to other areas has to be one of my the greatest accomplishments.

     

    Q: If you could go back in your career or your current role – would you have done anything differently?

    HG: I don’t think I would go back and change anything really in my career, those difficult and challenging times I had to go through to learn a specific skill or leadership trait.  We have to have some failures and be able to learn from them to achieve growth and improvement.  If I could take some learning back, I would definitely have looked to spend more time developing relationships earlier, especially among my customer base, to be more deeply entranced in any and every aspect of the business I was supporting vs. sticking just to the technology space as my primary domain.

     

    Q: What has been the most meaningful aspect of your engagement with High Availability, Inc.?

    HG: My most meaningful engagement with H.A. has to be around our exploration and discovery of what HCI (Hyper Converged Infrastructure) solution we should make part of our next large data center and cloud hybrid strategy, this was a large task that would have long-lasting impact, H.A. was patient, authoritative and supportive of our immediate need and our overall strategy bringing additional experts outside the company to focus on key areas we needed to be successful.  That is the mark of a true partner, someone who listens so well they become someone that works for your organization without you directly paying them; that is H.A. for us!

    High Availability, Inc. Named One of the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania

    Audubon, PA, September 27th - High Availability, Inc. has been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2019. The awards program, created in 2000, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. The program is a public/private partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Central Penn Business Journal. 

    "The entire High Availability, Inc. team is honored to be named as one of Pennsylvania's Best Places to Work for the second year in a row," said Steve Eisenhart, Chief Executive Officer of High Availability, Inc. "This award, once again, confirms that we have created a positive and thriving work environment for our employees. We will continue to focus on building and maintaining the right culture as we believe it’s the foundation of our organization.  Making this list is a tremendous accomplishment and something that means so much to all of us at H.A., Inc!

    This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, who are benefiting the state's economy and its workforce. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees they have in the United States, 15 to 99 employees, 100 to 250 employees, or more than 250 employees.

    To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

    • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
    • Be a publicly or privately held business
    • Have a facility in Pennsylvania
    • Have at least 15 employees working in Pennsylvania
    • Be in business a minimum of one year

    Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first part of this process was evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process.

    High Availability, Inc. will be recognized at the Best Places to Work in PA awards banquet on Thursday, November 21, 2019, at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA. Rankings will be revealed at the ceremony. Tickets may be purchased online at www.CPBJ.com/events.

  • Top Reasons to Back Up Office 365

    Top Reasons to Back Up Office 365

    September 17th, 2019
    Read More

    According to Forbes, 50% of the U.S. workforce will soon be remote. This impending trend is not surprising when the tech world makes it so easy to collaborate with anyone, from anywhere, at any time. Microsoft is one of the key players when it comes to increasing collaboration among employees. 

    With Office 365; employees can share, store, and organize files, conduct real-time conversations with video and chat services, and speed up productivity since waiting on back-and-forth emails will be a thing of the past. With all of this data flowing through multiple lines of communication, it's crucial to make sure it's backed up should anything happen.

    Our Microsoft experts at High Availability, Inc. have narrowed down the top reasons you should backup your Office 365. Check them out below...

    1. Accidental deletion of data
      1. Have you ever accidentally deleted a file and had that fleeting moment of extreme panic? Your mind races with worry and dread over having to recreate that document or file. If you backup Office 365 - you will never have to experience this feeling again because all of your data can be recovered in an instant. 
    2. Internal threats to your data
      1. As much as you would love to believe all of your employees can be trusted, you need to air on the side of caution when it comes to your data. You need to assume that your data could be put at risk whenever an employee, or future ex-employee, becomes disgruntled. What if they decided to mass delete precious data out of spite? With your Office 365 data backed up - you can get back up and running in no time. Next item on your to-do list? Contact HR! 
    3. Gaps in your retention policies
      1. Depending on your industry, your data may need to be retained anywhere from six months to twenty eight years! It's possible to lose data that falls off due to your retention policies. Without a backup solution, this data can be permanently lost. Checking the box that your data is backed up and recoverable is easy in the cloud.
    4. Threats from cybercrime
      1. Your data can be compromised from cybercriminals who are somehow (ex: phishing) able to gain access to your environment. With your Office 365 data backed up - you can quickly restore your data, so you have more time to focus on combating the cybercriminals who hacked in.
    5. Human error
      1. Human errors happen because...well, we are all human! Protect against *hopefully* simple slip-ups by backing up your Office 365 data. 
    6. Compliance Issues
      1. Some industries, healthcare namely, have a lot of rules and regulations when it comes to backing up data. For example, under the HIPAA Security Rule entities defined as health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers who electronically transmit information must develop and implement a sound backup and recovery plan, emergency procedure, and perform a data criticality analysis to remain compliant. 

    Contact your High Availability Account Representative to learn more about how we can help your team implement a cloud backup solution.

    On Thursday, September 12th the mid-Atlantic region’s top IT professionals gathered for High Availability, Inc.’s Annual Golf Outing at the Downingtown Country Club. The event, which is now in its 17th year, is a customer appreciation event through and through. It brings our top clients, the entire H.A. team, and leading IT vendors together to kick-back, play a round of golf, and enjoy a few specialty drinks and craft beers!


    The day began with a shotgun start, which sent golfers on their way to the course. Each sponsor had a branded tent on a designated hole, with activities and beverages to keep golfers entertained. In fact, golfers were often seen taking breaks from their round of golf to participate in Rubrik’s Speed Swing Contest (the fastest swing was 94 mph!), hydrating with a Pure Smokin’ Fast Bourbon at the Pure Storage tent, or taking a shot at the Veeam Marshmallow Drive Contest (the longest drive was 138.8 ft.!).


    After golf, attendees enjoyed a buffet lunch while Steve Eisenhart, CEO of High Availability, Inc., raffled off pro-shop gift cards, a Bag Boy Nitron Push Cart, a pair of Oakley sunglasses, and a WOSPORTS Golf Rangefinder.


    We already can’t wait for next year!
