According to one of the world's leading high technology analyst firms, the emergence of the 'cloud' as an alternative for information services delivery will continue to be one of the most important developments in the evolution of the IT market with the storage industry in a position to be among the major beneficiaries of the deployment of 'hybrid' cloud environments. Successfully addressing this trend, suppliers will balance growing demands from cloud customers for low-cost hardware while addressing the demand for advanced software solutions in areas such as object-based storage, automated data tiering, Big Data processing, and advanced archiving services.

The Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD is a dynamic solution for SMBs as it provides convenient mobile access and file sharing that today's businesses demand, providing IT the ability to securely control data and manage user accounts. Additionally, anytime users save changes to a file, it is automatically synchronized across all of the devices in which the SmartStor Cloud Agent or App has been installed. The SmartStor APP was designed to be fully functional with both Apple and Android mobile platforms including support for the recently announced iOS6 thus providing an exceptional degree of flexibility demanded by today's tech-savvy users. All users sharing the files are automatically updated too, a huge benefit when collaborating with team members on projects.

"Our new Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD offering features the most advanced file management system available for the private cloud today. This dramatic new feature combined with multi-level version control was developed in direct response to our customers' continued demand for increased security, flexibility and stability across all their applications," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "At the core of the SmartStor Cloud Series is our proven RAID engine which provides end-users with the stability and reliability that are core ingredients for any cloud computing solution."

Hybrid Cloud Storage Series SmartStor A4R-CLD has been honored with an impressive list of awards, including the prestigious 'Best Choice' award at Computex 2012, the world's second largest ICT show. Additionally, its outstanding functionality and innovation was recognized with the 'Cloud Innovation Award' from the Cloud Computing Association in Taiwan.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In past @ThingsExpo presentations, Joseph di Paolantonio has explored how various Internet of Things (IoT) and data management and analytics (DMA) solution spaces will come together as sensor analytics ecosystems. This year, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Joseph di Paolantonio from DataArchon, will be adding the numerous Transportation areas, from autonomous vehicles to “Uber for containers.” While IoT data in any one area of Transportation will have a huge impact in that area, combining sensor...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
