The increase in big data and new innovations in media are transforming the tech landscape. These changes bring up new concerns around storage. How can we safely and efficiently store this data? Which storage system is best for my growing needs? In this post, we will breakdown the differences between block storage and object storage. Block storage, as defined by Techtarget.com, “is a type of data storage typically used in the storage-area network (SAN) environments where data is stored in volumes, also referred to as blocks.” Each block can be […]
The rising amount of IoT devices has opened the market for edge computing. According to Cisco, IoT devices will generate 507.5 zettabytes of data. The growing amount of data generated by IoT devices is difficult to manage and analyze. Edge computing allows connected devices and sensors to transmit data to nearby computing infrastructures. The computing infrastructures will then process the data and send it back to the IoT devices. Edge computing allows users to access information quicker and more efficiently. According to a report by the BI Intelligence, 5.6 billion […]
Many IT professionals still follow DoD 2220.22-M as their standard for data destruction. Unfortunately, what they may not recognize is by solely using the manual they put their companies data at risk. As an alternative IT professionals should use the NIST Special Publication 800-88 Rev 1. We created an infographic to compare the two and demonstrate the top four reasons the NIST Standard is better than the DoD manual for data destruction.
