Cloud storage is a method for people and businesses to securely store data online, making it accessible any time of day from any location. Data stored in the cloud is effortlessly shared with anyone who is granted permission. Companies also use cloud storage because it makes data recovery easier due to the clouds back up properties. Today, with access to a private cloud, there is an ongoing debate as to which is better, private or public cloud.
As a business grows and expands in our modern digital society, it becomes more and more dependent upon technology. As a business owner, you want to leverage the most out of this technology in terms of growth and diversification without being hampered by outdated software or unutilized resources. The easiest solution to this dilemma is the process known as cloud migration by which companies move their data and on-premise applications to the cloud.
Disasters can strike at any time -- from devastating weather-related events such as tornadoes, tsunamis, floods or fires, to power outages, ransomware, and even sabotage. There is a whole gamut of events that could affect your flow of business. At the same time, there are a number of ways to design a disaster recovery plan that will effectively put you back in business in the timeliest manner.
Businesses have discovered a broad range of uses for blockchain technology. They can use it to share information in a way that makes sure no one cheats. Blockchain does present its own challenges, and it needs a base of solid equipment and software. The blockchain needs to be tamper-proof, and off-chain storage needs to be secure. IBM offers an integrated set of hardware and software components for the purpose, under the name IBM Storage Solutions for IBM Blockchain.
We're witnessing the quintessential purpose behind data centers in the world today. Every company with its sites on information must be able to accommodate the vast amounts of data collected as well as running and housing critical business applications needed to conduct daily operations. A report issued by DCD Intelligence states: "Almost a quarter of the data center footprint in the North America region is outsourced, and the amount invested in data center outsourcing and colocation has increased by 13% over the past twelve months. Companies are outsourcing at a higher rate and are opting to take advantage of the cost efficiencies and IT resources associated with colocation. This allows CIOs the opportunity to expand their data center footprint on an as-needed basis, rather than invest in an entire expansion up front."
Big businesses and small ones alike have to take network security seriously. Data breaches at major companies make the news, but small ones are targets too. Data thieves assume smaller networks don't have as much protection as big enterprises. They're often right.
All of us know the importance of backing up our data to a reliable source. There was a time when that source was a local server, but those days have long passed. Cloud computing has replaced local servers as the premier backup source. If you aren't already using cloud computing, you should know about the 10 benefits of cloud computing in 2019.
A network security policy is essentially a set of rules that have been put in place to dictate how information is able to be accessed. These networks get put in place to help protect sensitive information and keep those who would do your company harm from getting access to the information. The entire network security policy that your company uses will include a variety of different measures that get set in place to meet management objectives, provide rules for all computer users, and allow for acceptable uses for the computers by the employees working in that company.
Virtualization is the process by which one creates a virtual (rather than physical) version of something such as an application or operating system. Security Virtualization is the subsequent process implemented to ensure the protection of the virtualized hardware infrastructure. Security Virtualization is necessary in order to minimize a number of risks which accompany the process of virtualization that virtual physical security systems cannot counteract such as unsecured file transfer between guests and hosts, risk of compromise spreading from applications on consolidated servers, and infection via the virtual network. Additionally, as multiple virtual networks operate across the same physical infrastructure, the security must address each level of virtualization in the proce
A Network Management System (NMS) is an application or a complete set of applications that lets network engineers manage a variety of different components of the network. These are generally independent functions that a NMS will allow you to manage all from one place. Some of these functions include wired and wireless devices. A NMS allows you to handle all aspects of both kinds of devices through configuring, managing, updating, and troubleshooting these devices and the networks that connect them all.
