One of the biggest tasks for IT managers is to ensure the long-term security of data, software, and hardware. Where issues arise, a rapid recovery is essential. Cloud Disaster Recovery (Cloud DR) is a concept that is ideally suited for these purposes. But what exactly distinguishes cloud protection and how does it differ from conventional backup solutions?
What happens to digital data after a company stores contacts, emails, and files in the cloud? Businesses that work with third-party providers need to know who retains data sovereignty over business and customer data when it is stored on external servers. Read on to find out how data sovereignty is legally regulated.
RAIDs are a good solution for improving the performance of hard drives. The individual standardized levels provide different approaches to boost reliability or the throughput rate of system networks. RAID 10 relies on complete data redundancy. Data is stored in a distributed manner and can be read quickly. Find out what’s behind the RAID level!
Combining hard drives to form a RAID is an attractive solution to optimize the performance and security of individual drives. One such approach that’s been hailed for its high safety factor is the RAID 6 technology. As an extension to the popular RAID 5 level, this network protects from data loss when two hard drives fail – all without having to duplicate your data manually.
A Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) can be used to improve data security or the performance of storage solutions. The specific advantages of a network depend on the selected RAID level. Find out how RAID 5 – a system of three or more hard drives – can improve security and throughput rate.
Hardly a storage concept embodies the RAID principle (Redundant Arrays of Independent Disks) as well as RAID 1 in which two or more hard disks are linked to save copies of data for access in case of system failure. Find out more about RAID 1 and why mirroring makes this network so special.
A Redundant Array of Independent Disks, or RAID for short, is a combination of several hard disks to form a single logical drive. Systems like these typically follows a redundant storage concept for higher security. The standard RAID 0 is an exception because it only seeks to optimize the data throughput by coupling several hard drives.
When the RAID concept was first introduced in the late 1980s, it was primarily intended as an alternative to high cost hard drives on mainframes. While the issue of cost has shifted somewhat into the background, RAID storage systems are still in demand because of their high reliability in a server environment. What’s behind the technology and what are the various RAID levels?
E-mail, instant messaging, or voice-over IP: If you want to communicate over the internet, you should make sure that the data transfer process can be trusted. The same goes for the World Wide Web. With online banking and digital shopping, money transactions are increasingly being carried out online. Popular encryption methods like DES, AES, or RSA should guarantee the security of passwords, credit...
SSL and TLS are two encryption protocols that are frequently used in email programs and browsers. Have you ever wondered which one you should choose when you are prompted to pick one when configuring an email client, for example? Here, you will learn what the differences between SSL and TLS are and why only one of them is still viable today.
