IDC: Real-time Compression Advances Storage Optimization

It should come as no surprise that storage budgets are constantly under pressure from opposing forces: On one hand, economic forces are pushing budgets to either stay flat or, in many cases, shrink as a percentage of a company's revenue.

What is this “File Sync” Thing and Why Should I Care About It?

Not so long ago, the office was the only place you could work. But when smartphones and tablets came along, the only thing holding us back from getting work done anywhere, any time was having access to our data.
