Whether you realize it or not, we’re exposed to artificial intelligence and machine-based learning every day. The virtual assistants on our smartphones, the smart speaker in your living room, your social media account, and even your favorite TV-streaming platform all use artificial intelligence and machine learning for optimum performance and personalized user experiences.

As a value-added reseller, your business model relies on providing your customers and clients with a product that works anytime they need it. If you are using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to deliver this product to your customers, you already know that this kind of platform has been all-too problematic in the past.
Standing up a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a great move for organizations looking to consolidate their systems or provide a simpler solution to standardizing how to support and provision users. However, one grand misconception we encounter when discussing the prospect of implementing VDI is that it will cost less.

Curious about hybrid cloud solutions? You’re not alone.
82 percent of polled enterprises either have deployed or are looking to deploy a hybrid storage strategy, compared to 9 percent of organizations that use or plan to use a single public cloud. Only 6 percent use or are searching for a single private cloud solution. So only a mere 3 percent of enterprises aren’t planning to use the cloud. The clear takeaway here is that we live in an overwhelmingly cloud-based world.
What Is Data Replication?
You may have heard your IT team referring to data replication. But what is it really, and why is it so beneficial to your essential operations?
Data replication refers to the process of storing data by copying data from your database from one server to another. This data usually is stored across multiple nodes to improve the availability of your data. Sharing the data across servers means that all users can share the data without inconsistency.
All-flash array systems seem to be taking off. Just how much of an increase are we seeing?
In 2018, the all-flash array market was valued at around $5.9 billion. In 2023, that market value is expected to more than triple with an estimated value of $17.8 billion. So why are we seeing such an increase in all-flash storage? How does it compare to other kinds of solid-state drives?

It seems like our entire lives -work and personal- are composed solely of data. There’s just so much of it. With the use of big data analytics on the rise, there’s more data than ever before. In fact, each day, users generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. When we talk about big data analytics, this is a massive volume of structured and unstructured data– sometimes petabytes- or exabytes-worth of information to be processed.
