Nearly 10 years after the first Storage Pod altered the storage landscape it continues to stimulate new approaches to data center storage. Let’s take a tour through the years of Storage Pod innovation.
Hot and cold in data storage describe the availability of the stored data and how often it’s typically accessed. Let’s take a look at the differences between hot and cold storage, the advent of hot cloud storage, and which temperature is right for your data storage strategy.
New cloud-oriented tools are playing a role in every step of media workflows, including content creation. Learn how iconik’s cloud-based MAM combines with B2 cloud storage to deliver an end-to-end cloud workflow that has transformed a media company’s ability to collaborate world-wide and meet production deadlines.
These applications let you mount B2 on your desktop, use it as if it were a local drive, and drag and drop files to and from B2 cloud storage. What could be easier?
Both digital asset management and media asset management systems help organizations centrally organize and manage assets so that teams can create content efficiently and securely. But what’s the difference between DAM and MAM and which should you be using for your media assets?
We look at the hard drive failure rates for the data drive models in operation in our data centers in 2018 (now totaling over 750 petabytes and 100,000 drives). In addition, we’ll see how the new hard drive models we added during the year did, including our 12 TB HGST and 14 TB Toshiba drives.
Maintaining access to data archived on physical media requires regular migration to new storage media as the original media ages. By migrating once to cloud storage, you can end the cycle of constant data migrations and save money, too.
We reveal the math and the assumptions behind Backblaze’s LTO vs B2 cloud storage calculator. You can download an Excel spreadsheet and try it yourself.
