There I sat, enjoying a Sunday morning moment reading a compilation of news articles and sure enough, something interesting caught my eye: Dinosaurs? I always did think the Euoplocephalus was pretty cool, but what interested me in this particular National Geographic article was the stunning increase in the rate of dinosaur species discovered recently.
“The customer is always right.”
It’s so easy to say, but much harder to embody consistently day in, day out, year after year. It’s what separate the average companies only trying to make a buck from the great companies making our lives better. Regardless of whether you are buying something for yourself or your family with your own hard-earned money, or whether you are investing your company’s money into an IT infrastructure or business app, it’s always important to know a company can deliver...
The new role of Data Storage
Companies and organizations of all sizes are drowning in a relentless deluge of data. Mankind has created more data in the past 18 months than in all of history — it’s almost impossible to wrap your head around this statistic — and this trend will continue to grow as more industries become part of the digital economy.
The iconic rock band, Buffalo Springfield the 1997 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee that was the predecessor to Crosby, Still, Nash and Young, was led by Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The song “For What It’s Worth”, written by Stills in 1967, for many symbolizes the changing of an era.
Recently, the top global IT analyst firms, notably Forrester and IDC, have written in-depth research notes that describe the changing of an era in data storage, management and protection and highlight...
In our first part of this Blog, we introduced the first 6 tedious and unproductive things that Storage Administrators don't have to do anymore thanks to Reduxio. Since Reduxio launched TimeOS 3.0 last week and added new amazing capabilities such as NoRestore™ and NoMigrate™ it makes sense that we keep building up this list.
In August 2016 Barnstable Police Department, a 130-person team in a small tourist town, became one of the average 4,000 victims per day of a ransomware attack.
Barnstable had recently deployed Reduxio's HX550 in order to improve application performance and since their mail servers were constantly running out of space and VDI boot times were frequently more than 3 minutes. Reduxio and Barnstable were able to completely avoid any data loss and complete a full systems recovery, ransom unpaid,...
Here’s something to think about. If you knew in advance, statistically, that by acquiring a company, post-merger, these two things could happen: (1) your own company’s profit margins, earnings growth, and return on capital will fall behind that of your industry peers in the three years following the deal; and (2) in that same three years, the stock returns of your merged company will be, on average, 24% lower than the returns for rival acquirers that you actually beat out on the deal, would...
Of the various problems that IT organizations face, I can quickly identify two closely-related important issues. The first is purchasing new equipment and being able to use it within a relatively short period of time. The second one is building up the knowledge and expertise needed to manage the equipment, and having this information accessible at any given time, and especially, during a major crisis.
Cyber attacks happen. How can you recover quickly?
If you are in IT management, everywhere you turn, you see warnings of malicious forces working diligently with the one aim of compromising your security and eating your data for lunch.
It’s not a question of if anymore but rather of when. Many times the cyber security tools will not prevent the break-in, but only alert you of the compromise.
With innovation comes change and with that, risk.
Given the speed at which technology is advancing today, many find it difficult to keep up, and some even perceive it risky to do so. People and organizations would rather stay with the safe and comfortable; there’s less risk there.
Or is there, really?
