The first-ever image of a black hole was revealed to the world by an international team of researchers from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project in a culmination of years of work, astronomy and computer science feats. How much data must you compute to get an image of something that’s 55 million light-years away, has a mass 6.5 billion times that of our own sun, from a network of 8 telescopes that combine to make a dish the size of the Earth?

Now, the Internet far surpasses its original definition as a vast network of computer systems. It has expanded rapidly and could potentially include everything. In the Internet of Things, all kinds of objects and technologies can effectively “talk” to one another.

With the rise in popularity of cloud-based data storage, more people are asking where and how information is actually stored by cloud providers. More precisely, what exactly is the ‘cloud’, and how secure is storing and sending information through the virtual network? It’s important to have a basic understanding of how your information is being handled–particularly the aspects of a service provider that you should be cognizant of in order to ensure the safety and privacy of your data.

These days, much of our important data is being stored on smaller technology platforms and this is increasing the risk of data loss. When an incident occurs the errors, and thus difficulty in retrieving data, are magnified because of the architecture and small scale. When problems happen with data, getting advice from a specialist who understands the inner workings of the technology can be the difference between data saved and data lost.

Storage is infallible. Or so you may think.
RAID Arrays do fail and through the doors of CBL Data Recovery disks from arrays do pass with increasing frequency.
Manufacturers frequently claim five 9’s availability, but when one of the disks of your RAID Array fails and then...
