  • The importance of storage

    Most people, when thinking of enterprise storage, will think of SAN and NAS, with a few going as far as DAS.  However, the growth of server-side storage, where specialised flash-based PCIe and M2 cards is leading to a far more complex estate of different non-volatile storage platforms.  Pulling all of these together along with using volatile storage (i.e. DIMM memory) can provide massive improvements in data performance - for little outlay.  This presentation, given by Clive Longbottom at an event with Viadex and PernixData, shows how different storage platforms are positioned in their means to adequately present data to the compute environment in terms of latency, and then looks at what is required to manage a highly complex and heterogeneous storage platform.

  • The Collision of the IoT and the IoE

    Clive Longbottom gave a presentation at SmartIoT London on the 12th April 2016 on how important it is to understand the difference between the IoT (those devices that you have total control over) and the IoE (those devices that you want data from, but have no direct control over).  The slide deck for that presentation is provided here.

  • Wearables and IoT for the enterprise

    There has been a lot of hype about wearable technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it might impact consumers, but there are areas in enterprise where this innovation is already presenting new opportunitites and perhaps some new threats. Organisations of all sizes need to be taking a closer look.

  • The Move to Cloud

    Many in the channel are worried that cloud computing threatens their business. Cloud providers may bypass them, disintermediating the channel as they take control of the customer directly. Sales people will leave in droves as they are forced to move from large payments of commission in their pay packets to smaller portions of a longer subscription deal provided over a period of time.

    However, the canny channel will embrace cloud computing and use it for what it is good for. It will enable them to gain faster time to capability and allow them to focus on where the real money is in in adding business value to their customers.

    This presentation takes at look at the promise and problemso f cloud and offers a set of tips for those in the channel wanting to make the most of what cloud can do for them.

  • How important is your data?

    Cloud security seems to be at the top of many people's minds. Not only are there worries over the absolute security of the cloud, but after Edward Snowden's revelations, questions are being asked as to exactly where a cloud datacentre is and what access a foreign power may have to anything within it.

    This presentation takes a look at what issues you shoudl be worried about (and a few where you probably shouldn't really worry) and what offshore datacentres have to offer to provide improved levels of data security.
