A NAS migration can be quite challenging for large-scale efforts. Major concerns include minimizing any downtime to users and maximizing data transfer rates without adversely affecting network performance. It’s also vitally important to verify the accuracy of all the data after the migration. There are also many other tedious tasks, and some of those are […]

Looking for an rsync alternative?

rsync alternative: Resilio connect

Rsync is one of the most well-known tools for synchronizing and sending data over the network. It was the very first tool that combined file synchronization with delta encoding and compression. Resilio Connect takes it to the next level.

How to use Resilio Connect to improve SCCM distribution

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is commonly used to centrally manage large number of devices. You’re probably using it for security compliance, patching, and auditing of Windows machines. Frequently, updates need to be distributed to remote offices and remote devices, and that’s where Connects powerful distribution and synchronization capabilities can augment or replace SCCM’s […]

Software on the edge

The fastest data on your network is the data you already have

In our latest installment of “Industries on the Edge,” we’ll explore a scene of massive innovation and transformation in an industry that’s become a catalyst for change in all others.  An industry that signals its unprecedented agility with terms of art like “continuous improvement”, “continuous integration” and “continuous deployment”. It’s also an industry being driven […]

What’s old is new again: Industries on the edge

Have you ever noticed the technology industry has a peculiar habit of repackaging things we’ve always done as something totally new and revolutionary? For example, putting computers in dedicated rooms where they can be cared for by operational experts is a practice as old as computing itself. But refer to this as “the Cloud” and […]

On the edge: The only real problem is scaling
