Why Cloud is the best option for startups?
One of the biggest challenges for start-ups is the lack of resources to procure and manage IT resources. A start-up with only 10 or 20 employees usually end-up dealing with an avalanche of IT tasks like website hosting, data storage, BYOD, CRM applications, numerous communication channels, online collaboration tools, payment processing and more. That’s where Cloud solutions can come into action. Continue reading

Before we discuss the innovations that changed data centers forever, let us consider the following average annual growth rate (AAGR) workloads on data centers:
- 10% in server workloads
- 20% in power demands

Data centers are both shrinking and expanding simultaneously. They are becoming smaller and leaner, and yet the performance is getting better and efficient.
Forward-thinking enterprises and industry leaders have started to overhaul their current data centers with technologies like virtualization & hybrid cloud solutions. There are two specific reasons behind this move:
- Cloud provisioning, expanding adoption of Social Media & Mobility, ballooning Big Data, increasing Automation & Analytics, and the constant need to do more with less – have become the new business challenges.
- Most of the data centers are dangerously outdated to handle these dynamic challenges.

Data is the essence of all businesses across the world. Protecting it from theft, exploitation, and misuse is now top priority for the organization. Client data that has been hacked can wipe out crores in revenues, and stolen intellectual property can impact competitive advantage. This can lead to needless privacy abuses that bring scrutiny and penalties from regulators, causing damage to the organization’s reputation.
Managing data is no longer confined to the multifaceted ecosystem of privacy-conscious consumers, digital staff and suppliers; data today is fuelled by mobility and the cloud. Perimeter-based security is no longer applicable. Data-centric security, where security is positioned closer to the data itself, is now the new reality.
The future of data security
A scene from the future
In today’s building boom, high-rise structures are all like small townships, with households, shops, workspaces – even parks and farms – all under a single roof. The spaces around us are malleable, designed to suit our needs. In place of owning stuff, we pay to use a space or a product, then return it, give it away, or recycle after use. People can car pool as a matter of course, and even rent out space in community gardens. We even order products from each other’s community farms! Continue reading
