Modern businesses use data in almost every aspect of their operations. Without immediate and constant access to it, organizations will come to a grinding halt. That's why it's critical to have data backups — in the event of a disaster, companies risk losing valuable data if they don’t have backup strategies in place.
Businesses rely on computers for their daily operations, so succumbing to a ransomware attack is devastating. Ransomware blocks access to all data, which can result in financial losses and the company closing down temporarily or permanently. Windows 10 offers built-in tools and cloud storage options so you can come out on the other side of a ransomware attack or data loss incident relatively unscathed.
Ransomware attacks are in the news again. Thankfully, business owners are becoming more aware of the damaging effects of malicious software. Companies now realize that without safe and reliable data backup, important business information can fall into the wrong hands or be lost forever.
Any business owner worth their salt knows the value of data to business. This is why it’s bizarre that many business owners don’t have a proper data backup strategy in place. Organizations of all sizes need to take a proactive approach to backing up their data, and there are several solutions they can implement to do that.
“Prevention is better than cure,” says the scholar Desiderious Erasmus and it speaks true not only in the medical field but also in technology. To avoid having a problematic storage virtualization system, here are three common mistakes to watch out for.
You’ve probably heard of cloud computing, but what about virtualization? Both are invaluable for small businesses, but it’s easy to mix them up. Learning the differences between these technologies can save you a lot of money, so let’s do a quick recap of how they work.
Ransomware brings a world of trouble to any business. From operational disruption and revenue loss to total shutdown, no company is spared. That is why it's wise to regularly back up your business data in multiple locations, including the cloud. Which is where Windows 10’s backup and restore tools come in handy.
Implementing a virtualized data storage solution at your business is no small feat. It’s a complicated process that requires immense amounts of technical expertise. Unfortunately, getting it up and running is only half the battle. For the most efficient solution possible, watch out for the three most common management issues outlined in this post.
Recently, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the creation of a new data analytics tool to lighten the burden on businesses when analyzing data in the cloud. This tool, referred to as “Glue,” is meant to clean up and organize data that comes into the cloud from various sources so that it can be analyzed by business intelligence software and data analytics experts.
Users of Amazon Web Services (AWS) will notice a difference in the price they pay for cloud storage as the company rolls out yet another price drop. Additionally, AWS has made changes to its Glacier “cold storage” plan in an effort to optimize customer data retrieval time.
