High Availability (HA) describes a system that can sustain long periods of continuous operation, and remain operational, even if a part of the system is no longer in service. Decreased downtime, the elimination of single points of failure, and replication and distribution of data across multiple locations, are all contributing factors that come together to create a high availability infrastructure.
One of the hottest debates in the IT world centers around all-flash versus traditional hard disk drives. Once seen as a luxury, reserved for corporations like Google, Facebook, and the NSA, solid-state disk (SSD) drives have shifted to become almost commonplace in both enterprise and consumer technology. The need for increased performance and smaller footprints […]
Key management refers to the process of creating, using, storing, exchanging, archiving, discarding, and replacing cryptographic keys in an encryption system.

Edge computing is a term used to describe decentralized IT infrastructure. In an edge computing environment, applications, computation, and data storage are all carried out near the source of the data (i.e. at the “network edge”), as opposed to in the cloud or at an offsite datacenter. By processing data locally and minimizing the distance between devices and servers, edge computing delivers improved performance, requires less bandwidth, and reduces latency.
Software-defined storage (SDS) is a form of storage virtualization. It significantly improves the simplicity and flexibility of data storage management by introducing a software layer, independent from the physical storage hardware (i.e. disks and SSDs). Subsequently, software-defined storage solutions allow more freedom in managing the way data is stored and retrieved.
