Server Automation – Your Key to a Faster, Secure, & More Efficient Data Center

Server Automation – Your Key to a Faster, Secure, & More Efficient Data Center

There’s a lot of truth to the old saying, “you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.”

Then again, the opposite is often true as well. Sometimes you have no idea what you’re missing until you have it – and then you can’t imagine how you ever lived without it!

There are countless examples of automated products, services, and technology that came along have changed our lives for the better – in ways we could never have imagined before.

What hyperconvergence means for SMBs

What hyperconvergence means for SMBs

Progressive SMBs are defined by how they use technology to achieve business growth. From acquiring new customers to managing suppliers to exceeding sales quotas, IT helps a lot. But traditional hardware and software solutions are expensive to purchase and support.

What is Virtualization as a DR solution?

What is Virtualization as a DR solution?

Most business owners don’t think of Virtualization when talking about Disaster Recovery (DR). However, virtualization actually serves as an effective disaster recovery plan. Here’s a breakdown for those unfamiliar with how the one can serve as a reliable way of implementing the other.

The Rise of Deep Learning in the Enterprise

The Rise of Deep Learning in the Enterprise

In a recent IDC report IT decision makers believe 75% of enterprises applications will use AI by 2021. Artificial Intelligence is not a new solution in fact we have seen various cycles of excitement followed by lulls. What makes this cycle any different? Two words: Deep Learning
What is deep learning?
The early stages of World War II brought about many challenges.

Choosing the right virtualization strategy

Choosing the right virtualization strategy

Just because virtualization is an incredibly advanced and complicated technology doesn’t mean small businesses can’t get in on the action. As experts debate the merits of virtual desktops versus containers, all SMBs need are an elementary understanding of how virtualization works and an IT provider.

2018 Server Trends & Observations

2018 Server Trends & Observations

Trends & Observations can serve two purposes. One, a view into a possible state and two, a reflection of things around us that can lead to disruptions. Sometimes you have to look closely to see the trees and other times far away to see the forest.
#1 Customer is King

The customer it turns out, is indeed always right…something we have all heard many times but often forget in the technology world.

2018 Brings Once-in-a-Generation Shift in Data Storage

2018 Brings Once-in-a-Generation Shift in Data Storage

I have to be honest. Much of what I predict to be significant for the data storage industry in 2018 may go unnoticed by most IT professionals, even though some of these concern major progress that hasn’t been experienced in nearly a full generation!

So much has been happening in the development of exciting new storage-class memory (SCM) that will help make arrays faster and more efficient in processing general purpose workloads, and this year I believe we’ll see a tangible payoff with the mainstreaming of this technology.

Serverless & Developing Applications Using Multiple Cloud Providers

Serverless & Developing Applications Using Multiple Cloud Providers

I’ve been into serverless technologies for a few years now. The thought of not having to care about what platform my code is executing on, or having to manage and operate it, resonated with my developer side that just wants to code. I also saw it as a possible catalyst for change in how we are developing applications using cloud provider services, one that allows services from multiple clouds to be pieced together to form a whole application…but more on that further down this blog!
Misleading Name…Awesome Developer Tech!
For the uninitiated, serverless technologies allow you to write code and then deploy it to a ’serverless service’. At which point, you can execute it whenever you like and get the result returned to you.
