Wacom Intuos Pro 2017 Review

The New Wacom Intuos Pro 2017 Review In Few Words (Mini Review) With a new look & nice new features, the new Intuos Pro is a step ahead in advancing graphics tablet, especially with the new feature. It may not be worth it if you own the previous Intuos Pro model, but it’s certainly a great upgrade from the much older Intuos, as well as the Bamboo or the Intuos line (the 2015 models & before). If you own a non-Wacom graphics tablet, this could be one of your options. The rough texture on The new Intuos Pro, while something some artists would like, as it imitates the way paper texture works, could also mean that the pen nib old wear up faster. Something many won’t like.

Veritas Releases New Solutions For Multi-Cloud Use

Building off of new alliances and partnerships the company has made with Google, IBM, and Microsoft, Veritas Technologies today announced new solutions for multi-cloud environments. According to Veritas, the new solutions are designed to provide organizations unprecedented visibility into cloud-based data, bi-directional cloud migration for critical workloads and snapshot-based data protection optimized for multi-cloud environments.

Not only is cloud adoption and utilization growing in organizations, multi-cloud (as the name implies, the use of two or more clouds to pool more benefits or backup between the clouds) is also rapidly increasing. According to IDC, 90% of enterprise organizations plan to utilize multi-cloud architectures over the next few years. If the estimate is correct it will radically drive up the use and adoption of multi-cloud, but that may just compound some of the issues that come with multi-cloud. These issues can include: lack of data visibility, complicated migration paths that also frequently result in cloud lock-in, a mistaken perception that because data is in the cloud, it does not need to be protected, not to mention governance issues for data that may reside in several places at once. Veritas’s new solutions aim to address theses issues.

Veritas is introducing a new Information Map S3 Connector that will enable visibility of cloud-based data. Veritas states that the connector will provide a real-time picture and interactive view of their unstructured data assets that reside in S3-enabled cloud storage repositories. Increased visibility lets organizations make better decisions on where data needs to be stored, whether or not it needs to be backed up, and whether or not it can be deleted. The new connector will also help enterprises comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which takes effect in May, 2018. Veritas found that only 1 in 10 enterprises believe that GDPR compliance is their responsibility. Under GDPR, organizations are just as responsible for adhering to the same data privacy mandates for data stored in the cloud – including any public cloud – as well as data stored on-premises.

To help enterprises safely and secure migrate workloads, Veritas is introducing its CloudMobility. With Veritas CloudMobility companies will be able to migrate complex workloads to the cloud or from the cloud back to on-premises through a single click. A big concern of migrating workloads is what if something goes wrong? Waiting for something to fail is no answer so CloudMobility offers a pre-migration testing so user will know what to expect before hand.

Veritas is also offering protection in multi-cloud environments with CloudPoint. CloudPoint leverages snapshot-based data protection to solve aggressive data recovery objectives and institute consistent data protection policies, regardless of where the workloads are located. To help customers avoid vendor lock-in and data silos, CloudPoint’s snapshot technology works across multi-cloud environments.

Following mixing, finalize sound via the master channel with the Mastering Suite – including 5.1 surround sound. Audio tracks can be exported to hard drives or transferred to external audio editors using the interface (EDL).

Professional Effect Design
