RDX Filling the Requirements for SMB Backup

Technology changes over time and the operational workflows for companies change as well. Data protection is one area that is a constant in that the requirements to protect data will continue.

Going Back to Tape

As I attended a number of broadcast and video events this spring, the future of the storage landscape became very clear to me.

When you can buy terabytes of cheap and fast RAID, why would you spend too much time strategising? Just store it all!

Many SMBs want to reduce (and simplify) the overall number of data protection approaches they have in place. This is the point that SMBs also recognize they need to start making some changes to improve their outcomes. It can be helpful to think of data protection as having a few key pillars: backup, archiving and off-site storage.

Moving to the Cloud? Don’t forget data protection!

"The cloud" has and will continue to revolutionize the way small- to medium-sized businesses do business. As your business-critical data begins to move into the cloud, it's essential to evaluate your overall data protection strategy. As the ease of data migration into the cloud increases, so does the potential to ignore consequences for data protection.

I developed Glassware 2.0 as a way to free developers and ISVs from these problems. With Glassware 2.0 there is no need to develop a version of an app for Windows 10, another for iOS devices, another for Android devices and yet another version to be delivered via HTML5 in the browser.
