Extracting Value from Data and Managing it at Scale

The landscape of storage is quickly changing with the rapid acceleration of data creation. 90% of all data has been generated in the last 2 years and that data creation has exploded from ~4.4 Zettabytes in 2013 to 44 Zettabytes by 2020. In light of these facts, it is easy to see why traditional storage solutions, […]

The Evolution of File and SwarmNFS

NAS and file servers were designed to handle frequently changing files across organizations. This type of data is now a small percentage of overall capacity; however, NAS and file server growth […]

Protecting Healthcare Data: RAID vs Advanced Erasure Coding

Storage systems used for EHR applications and PACS images have to ensure that vital patient information does not disappear, as such an event would certainly worsen patient outcomes and increase legal exposure. Storage systems for the last 30 years have used redundant arrays of disks (RAID), but RAID no longer works in this post-HIPAA world. […]
