According to one of the world's leading high technology analyst firms, the emergence of the 'cloud' as an alternative for information services delivery will continue to be one of the most important developments in the evolution of the IT market with the storage industry in a position to be among the major beneficiaries of the deployment of 'hybrid' cloud environments. Successfully addressing this trend, suppliers will balance growing demands from cloud customers for low-cost hardware while addressing the demand for advanced software solutions in areas such as object-based storage, automated data tiering, Big Data processing, and advanced archiving services.

The Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD is a dynamic solution for SMBs as it provides convenient mobile access and file sharing that today's businesses demand, providing IT the ability to securely control data and manage user accounts. Additionally, anytime users save changes to a file, it is automatically synchronized across all of the devices in which the SmartStor Cloud Agent or App has been installed. The SmartStor APP was designed to be fully functional with both Apple and Android mobile platforms including support for the recently announced iOS6 thus providing an exceptional degree of flexibility demanded by today's tech-savvy users. All users sharing the files are automatically updated too, a huge benefit when collaborating with team members on projects.

"Our new Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD offering features the most advanced file management system available for the private cloud today. This dramatic new feature combined with multi-level version control was developed in direct response to our customers' continued demand for increased security, flexibility and stability across all their applications," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "At the core of the SmartStor Cloud Series is our proven RAID engine which provides end-users with the stability and reliability that are core ingredients for any cloud computing solution."

Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD has been honored with an impressive list of awards, including the prestigious 'Best Choice' award at Computex 2012, the world's second largest ICT show. Additionally, its outstanding functionality and innovation was recognized with the 'Cloud Innovation Award' from the Cloud Computing Association in Taiwan.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
