  • Launching A Content Fabric

    Distributing digital content, especially video, is the largest single use of the Internet. Content distributors have relied on a mix of central servers connected to a large storage library, combined with distributed edge content delivery servers. These edge-servers store the most active content, preloaded into them from the central server. This setup is shown below (from the eluv.io NAB show 2019 presentation) and is referred to as a content delivery network (CDN). CDNs are the backbone for most content delivery systems and…

  • Achieving Data Integrity In The Era Of Remote Workers

    When people think about data integrity, they often think about making sure that their files are not modified or deleted by unauthorized people. However, there’s much more to it than that. Data integrity is also about comprehensiveness (meaning that all the data that you need to capture is, in fact, captured), consistency (data is accurate regardless of who or what is creating or updating it) and traceability (every modification is properly recorded). Data integrity is a key part of regulatory…

  • The Internet of Things and the Cloud

    ZZZBodyZZZBEG Back in the 1970s, it was popular for businesses to rent time using big, mainframe computer systems. These systems were extremely large and expensive, so it didn’t make sense financially for businesses to own the computing power themselves. Instead, they were owned by large corporations, government agencies, and universities. Microprocessor technology allowed for great reductions in size and expense, leading to the advent of the personal computer, which exploded in popularity in the 1980s. Suddenly, businesses could (and did)…

  • IBM Storwize: New Innovations for Midmarket, Channel – eWEEK

      Continual evolution is the foundational truth underlying tech industry chestnuts such as Moore’s Law, and it provides the subtext for innumerable marketing and promotional campaigns.

Building new products costs lots of money, especially when it comes to business IT. So it’s no surprise that new solutions are initially designed according to the…

  • IT security tasks to protect your small business

    The Identity Theft Resource Center said the number of data breaches reported in 2018 dropped 23% compared to 2017, and yet the number of sensitive consumer records exposed increased 126% year-over-year.

Unfortunately, the security issues are often compounded by employees who…

  • It’s Scary How Much Personal Data People Leave on Used Laptops and Phones, Researcher Finds

    Hack-a-Day explores thermite-based anti-forensic techniques Screenshot: Jason Rollette (YouTube) In a dusty plastic bin under my bed lies at least four laptops, six cellphones, and a half-dozen hard drives. I have no idea what’s on any of them. Most of these devices predate the cloud-storage era, and so likely contain solitary copies of photos, texts, and emails, among other confidential files (porn?) that I’d probably be horrified to learn had fallen into the hands of strangers. In retrospect, I should’ve…
