Flash Storage: Solid State Drive (SSD)

Flash: More Data, Faster Access

With the need for high-speed access to large amounts of data reaching a crescendo, and the cost of flash memory steadily falling, it is time to examine new approaches to storage, including hybrid-flash and all-flash arrays.

Big data, regulatory compliance, and increased security scrutiny have contributed to storage-related issues such as data sprawl and long-term data retention needs. This has placed a huge and ever growing data management burden on business and IT departments. You need to devise a strategy to safeguard your business and customer data, and improve overall operational efficiency while reducing costs. When considering your informational resources strategy, one technology that needs to take center stage is flash storage.

Should VDI be part of your move?

Benefits include improved security, productivity, cost savings and desktop management

by Eric Bruno | 05.22.14

With the desktop OS in transition, now might be a good time to take another step, to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Better security, compliance, and control are compelling VDI benefits.

According to a CIO.com report from a few years ago over 63 million people could telecommute by 2016. At this point, my sense is that estimate is low. While this level of telecommuting represents potential savings to enterprises (reduced office space and telecommunications costs, plus added worker productivity), combined with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, it does bring new risks. Security, availability, and reliability are at the top of the list.

From XP to Windows 7

Windows 8 predecessor has virtues for many; here’s what to consider

When I upgraded to Windows 8 a few months after its launch in August 2012, it was an accident. I had just purchased a new computer and downloaded the latest version of Windows, not realizing at the time that the operating system had a totally different look and feel from the interface I’d grown accustomed to. It was a tough transition. And, it wasn’t just me. Every time a helpdesk guy wanted to take control of my computer to fix a problem remotely, I’d hear a gasp and a groan, “Oh, no, you have Windows 8.

Many IT managers fear a loss of company or client data, unauthorized access to the network, and malware infections. They may also lack the resources needed to properly address these security concerns. We’re here to share some tips and strategies to ensure your data remains secure as you implement a BYOD policy.

When Microsoft abandons ship on Windows XP support on April 8, 2014, it will not be patching security holes, which means your Internet-connected computer will be a defenseless piece of hardware that is fair game for malicious software attacks.

While Microsoft has offered anti-malware signature support until July 14, 2015, that is not a commitment to extend security support for XP. Microsoft will continue to provide updates to its XP anti-malware software, including Microsoft Security Essentials, in order to detect some forms of malware. But working on an outdated OS means it will have limited effectiveness, the company concedes.
