Fog computing

Fog computing: decentralised approach for IoT clouds

Traditionally, cloud solutions are designed for central data processing. IoT devices generate data, send it to a central computing platform in the cloud, and await a response. However, with large-scale cloud architectures, such a system inevitably leads to bandwidth problems. For future projects such as connected cities and smart manufacturing, classic cloud computing is a hindrance to growth. The...

Autonomous cars, intelligent factories and self-regulating supply networks – a dream world for large-scale data-driven projects that will make our lives easier. However, what the cloud model is and how it works is not enough to make these dreams a reality. The challenge of effectively capturing, evaluating and storing mass data requires new data processing concepts. With edge computing, IT...

The best online backup services

Comparing the best online backup services

Many people use several devices and have data stored on them. What should you do if your data carrier fails or the data gets lost? Backing up data is extremely important and an online backup makes perfect sense. By doing this, you don’t risk losing your important files due to a system crash or criminal activitiy.

Storing large data volumes with SAN solutions

SAN storage: how to safely store large volumes of data

Due to rising worldwide data usage, more and more companies around the world are moving away from dedicated data servers and instead opting for more holistic solutions in the form of centrally stored data networks. This structure is carried out in the form of storage area networks, or SANs. SAN storage users profit from quick data access and comprehensive hardware redundancy.

CaaS (Container as a Service)- Service Comparison

Container-as-a-Service – CaaS provider comparison

CaaS – Container-as-a-Service – is the latest model in the cloud computing market: users can find suitable platforms for all established infrastructure providers. But what actually is CaaS? And what is the difference between CaaS and other cloud services, like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)? Here we introduce hosted container...

IaaS: infrastructure as a service

IaaS: highly scalable IT infrastructure from the cloud

Cloud computing offers companies excellent opportunities to outsource resources. For example, the cloud model “Infrastacture as a Service” (IaaS) provides access to IT infrastracture that is traditionally provided and maintained by an external provider. This way, a complete network or data centrer can be set up without the need for your own hardware, the size of which can be scaled at any time....

On-premises software vs. cloud software

On-premises vs. cloud software

More and more private and professional PC users are faced with the question: Should I buy the software or simply rent it and access it via the internet? On-premises software vs. cloud software: Both options have their advantages – but also serious disadvantages. So before you decide on an option, you should be clear about the pros and cons.
