Leading telecommunication companies are finding new revenue streams by expanding IT as-a-service offerings to their customers.

HiMSS 2014–We’ll Be There!

It’s that time of year again when we gather up our demo systems and head for somewhere warm and sunny to escape the brutal cold of winter. This year we head to Orlando, FL for some excitement with Mickey and, of course, the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting. A common theme we have seen over this past year is that healthcare is moving in a direction that demands better patient care. Did you know that since the last conference over 1 exabyte of patient-related data has been generated? But what have we done with it? Or the better question is…what CAN we do with it? This of course leads to what we can expect to see at HIMSS.

My Goodness!! Won’t that Mainframe Thing Just Go Away!!

It’s been almost 30 years since its demise was predicted and the words “the mainframe is dead” echoed throughout datacenters around the world. About the same time people were scrambling to remove words like “MVS” and “mainframe” from their resumes. Outside of their datacenters and the semi-annual SHARE conference, it was seldom discussed. The “gray-hairs” ultimately retired and the skill set declined, so it would have to die. Right? Well, not quite. This is not a beast to be starved.

One of the most egregious causes of the copy data problem for many organizations is the common practice of performing full backups every weekend. The architecture of the backup application forces this practice, as it requires a recent full backup data set as the basis for efficient recovery. But each full backup set contains mostly the same files that were backed up in the previous full backup, and the one before that.
