  • Virtualization is just getting warmed up

    Virtualization is an unstoppable trend under which applications become progressively more abstracted and independent from the underlying platforms on which their services execute. It’s now a well-established practice for enhancing the scalability, portability and efficiency of information technology assets. It supports flexible partitioning, aggregation and composition of compute, storage, memory and bandwidth within and across diverse networks, clouds, clusters, servers and other platforms. All this enables legacy assets to deliver value alongside the newest platforms for the remainder of their…

  • Edge Computing: The Disruption of Data Center Management

  • Cloud storage: Minimizing repair costs

    As the Big Data revolution continues its exponential growth, the problems of processing and protecting that also grow. Advanced ECCs – along with hardware and geographic redundancy – can ensure that data loss becomes less likely than an asteroid strike, at only a 40 percent overhead, much lower than the triple redundancy used in some cloud storage. But when the data redundancy is compromised by a hardware failure – disk, server, or data center – redundancy must be restored. As…

  • Why blockchain data storage is more secure than the cloud

    Each day seem to bring a new story on a data security breach or unfortunate hacking. One solution is to use a blockchain data storage, which is more secure than a typical cloud that gets stored on a centralized database. Blockchain has a few advantages over the traditional cloud data storage as the technology makes it so that hackers are not able to target blockchain storage accounts as easily or invisibly. It is also difficult for a potential hacker to…
