Bitcoin is a beautiful concept – some kind of altruist-  and I can think there millions, including myself, expecting what will … Continue reading Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?

This new trend of software defined something that has blessed the storage field and now … Continue reading What do I have to choose to efficiently store, protect and manage my private cloud’s data?
