The Lingering Effects of Data Loss

As computers have grown increasingly sophisticated, businesses are now able to store and retain more digital data than ever before.

Decentralizing the Centralized Cloud with Edge Computing

In the same way that cloud computing revolutionized data centers via unprecedented access to a pool of centralized resources, so too will edge computing revolutionize data processing... by decentralizing it again.

This reduces management headaches and limits the need for devices to…

Efficiently Storing Backups: On-Premises, Private Cloud, or Public Cloud?

No matter how modern technology has evolved, there is always a way for it to fail, taking valuable files and data along with it. Even if you build a "perfect" system, a tree can still crash through the roof onto your storage format of choice.
