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 […]
If you have responsibility for any part of a mission critical operation, you know the world is full of surprises. No matter your personal best efforts and those of your team, whatever can go wrong in tech eventually will, interrupting development or IT production workflow.
Key in reliably delivering software builds and artifacts is a solution that automatically overcomes all possible errors without human intervention. Most systems are prone to failure. You should be certain that your synchronization set-up for CI/CD is designed for high reliability.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
“The only real problem is scaling. All others inherit from that one.” — Mike O’Dell, Chief Scientist, UUNet Building and running applications at the edge of the network is a complex exercise in distributed systems engineering. And the challenge is often one of operations and scale. When we think of scaling challenges at the edge, […]
How to implement a scalable real-time synchronization solution for any file, folder or app size, over any network infrastructure, if you can’t or won’t use the cloud. Introduction As the world becomes more distributed, the workflow between teams is increasingly complex. A common scenario is of several teams working from different locations, that all need […]
Sync 2.6.0 is here! With real-time performance charts, one-time file sharing and many more improvements. The greatest thing about Sync v 2.6 is the new performance charts. You can see how the system behaves in real time. Performance Charts Charts are divided into two sections showing network activity and disk load. Network activity shows transfer […]
In this blog post, we will look into client-server architecture, compare it to peer-to-peer, and find out exactly when client-server is better than P2P. For those of you who aren’t willing to spend few minutes reading through the article, I’ll give an immediate answer – peer-to-peer is always better than client-server. The client-server architecture is […]
