South Africa is an attractive target for cybercriminals for a number of reasons, and the last few years have seen a sharp rise in high-profile ransomware attacks. One of the key motivations driving this volume of attacks is the fact that data is a de facto currency and an extremely valuable commodity on the black market. While backup is a critical component of data protection, when this backup is also encrypted by malicious software, companies are often left with few options other than to pay the ransom. Therefore, an effective Cyber Recovery strategy, which enables businesses to get back up and running without having to give in to criminal demands, is the key.

It’s a quandary at the centre of strategically managing the TCO of data storage.

Released in 2014 as an open-source system for automating the deployment and management of containerized applications, Kubernetes has come a long way in the past seven years. It was first created by Google and then turned over to a vendor-neutral body, the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), to manage it as an open-source project. But we are only now starting to see mature Kubernetes deployments at mainstream enterprises.
