However, performance of these highly parallel technical workloads has increased dramatically over the last decade with the introduction of increasingly sophisticated hardware support for virtualization, enabling organizations to begin to embrace the numerous benefits that a virtualization platform can offer.

Software-Defined Storage — Opportunities for the Enterprise

IDC believes that software-defined storage (SDS) continues to transform IT deployment and consumption of storage resources. For enterprises, SDS is really an on-ramp to deploying a hybrid cloud — one that allows a metered on-demand consumption of private and public cloud resources.

Gender Pay Gap – The Shameful Reality

As compared to women, the participation of men is much higher in the labor market. As per the International Labor Organization (ILO), most of the countries have a difference in women and men work force. However, since the last 30 years, there has been a rise in the women workforce. More and more women are climbing up the career ladder. They are competitive, ambitious, and strong-headed career-oriented women. However, the women in managerial positions are only at 34%, which is a huge alarming gap. Even though they have academic qualifications and skills at par with their male counterparts, there is a disparity in the number of women in manager positions as compared to men. It’s quite shocking to know that there is gender inequality in every sector.

Will Voice Search Impact SEO?

If I ask my mobile about the weather forecast, it will give me an update on the weather condition. I may not even have to look at my screen. Isn’t it amazing that technology is changing so rapidly? A few years back, we had to type to look for information. We no longer have to use keypads anymore. We can get any information like traffic insights, cooking recipes, shops nearby, or any information without actually typing on our phones. Amazon’s Alexa, iPhone’s Siri, Microsoft Cortana, and Google Assistance has already changed the way voice-based applications work. So will this have an impact on SEO?

Cobb Electric Membership Corporation Makes the Transition to All Flash for Primary Storage

All-flash arrays (AFAs) have rapidly grown to become a major segment of the external enterprise storage market, generating $2.55 billion in revenue in 2015. Flash storage brings many benefits, including very low latencies and high throughput that is consistent with heavy and/or highly burstable workloads, reduced energy costs, increased storage density for effective storage capacity, and improved server efficiencies (due to its ability to drive significantly higher CPU utilization in application and database servers).

5 Strategies to Avoid Business Partnership Disputes

One of the easiest ways when it comes to structuring a business and getting additional funds and a mix of skills is through partnership. Starting a company as partners is advantageous in several ways since people working together towards a shared goal are more productive than a single person.

Though having all these advantages, a partnership is also at risk of disagreements no matter how big or small the business may be. There are a lot of reasons why disagreements emerge; hence, the best solution for partnership disagreements is avoiding them rather than solving them. Below are some of the ways of preventing partnership disputes.

Innovating in Endpoint Security

One of the greatest challenges to protecting a business against cybercrime is the shape shifting nature of security threats.

They are increasingly professional, more aggressively funded, and better-equipped than ever to exploit any weak link in the security chain.

Achieve Total Cost of Operation Benefits Using Cloud Computing

A core reason organizations adopt a cloud IT infrastructure is to save money. The traditional approach of analyzing Total Cost of Ownership no longer applies when you move to the cloud. Cloud services provide the opportunity for you to use only what you need and pay only for what you use. We refer to this new paradigm as the Total Cost of Operation. You can use Total Cost of Operation (TCO) analysis methodologies to compare the costs of owning a traditional data center with the costs of operating your environment using AWS Cloud services.

Server Security Lies Deep in Hardware

Replacing servers is often delayed. Confronted with competing business priorities, limited budgets and personnel, and a sense of comfort as current servers reliably hum along, delay is easy to rationalize. Yet, delays are not without risk and trade-offs. Cases in point are two circumstances that small and midsized enterprises (SMEs) should seriously consider and, in our opinion, initiate action now.

Is a Recession Heading Our Way?
