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."

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
