What is metadata?

What is metadata?

Metadata is generated by many applications in the digital world. If this data is collected and analyzed en masse, it poses a serious risk to privacy. But metadata doesn’t have to be dangerous. The term is broad and encompasses a lot of useful techniques. In this article we’ll explore the meaning of metadata with some examples.

RAID 10

RAID 10: Mirroring and striping combined

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!

RAID 6

RAID 6: Storage technology to minimize data loss

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.

RAID 5

RAID 5: What you need to know about the RAID level

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.

RAID 1

RAID 1: understanding the hard disk compound

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.

RAID 0

RAID 0: what’s behind the RAID level?

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.

RAID

What is RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)?

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?

What is the EU-US Privacy-Shield?

Privacy Shield – controversial data transfer agreement between the EU and the US

For some years, the Privacy Shield has regulated the transfer of personal data from the EU to the US. But in July 2020, the Court of Justice for the European Union (CJEU) invalidated the Privacy Shield. For many companies, the end of the privacy agreement came as a complete surprise. What were the contents of the EU-US Privacy Shield, what made it fail, and what do SMEs have to take into account...

What is a session ID?

What is a session ID?

When a website is visited, the server generates a session ID and assigns it to the user. This session ID is temporarily created by the server and assigned to the user for a during their active session to identify the user and their data exchanges throughout the session.
