  1. Offload Inactive Data to the Cloud and Drive Down Storage Costs

    Most files have a similar lifecycle: They’re created, revised several times, and then seldom used again. Unfortunately, files can rarely just be deleted. They may need to be kept for legal reasons, or an application may require them to exist in order to function. So even though they’re rarely used, old files must be kept and organized. Ideally, files should be moved to inexpensive storage o… Read More

  5. Software Training Labs in the Modern Enterprise

    Not all that long ago, software training in the enterprise was largely based around the use of informational videos. While video-based training does have its place, it isn’t ideal. Videos sometimes contain knowledge gaps, and there isn’t a way for a student to ask the instructor questions in real time. Perhaps more importantly, the lack of interactivity makes it easy for a student to simply tu… Read More
