ISC deliver simple, affordable and secure storage solutions to enterprise environments. TwinStrata’s solutions address the business need for on-demand IT services, providing new levels of business agility, efficiency, IT alignment and cost management for protecting and managing the growth of business application data.

    “TwinStrata is working with customers around the world and with industry-leading global technology companies to define and develop intelligent storage cloud architectures and solutions,” said TwinStrata CEO & Co-Founder Nicos Vekiarides.

     

    Here’s some additional information about Intelligent Storage Clouds from TwinStrata:

    What is an Intelligent Storage Cloud?

    Intelligent Storage Cloud services typically include Compute Anywhere™ application accessibility, seamless application integration, data replication, remote mirroring, data sharing, caching, zero-footprint snapshots, compression and security.

    What does an Intelligent Storage Cloud provide?

    An Intelligent Storage Cloud is an infinitely expandable and dynamic resource that provides the convenience and affordability of cloud storage without security risk or performance limitations.

    How does an Intelligent Storage Cloud get delivered?

    Intelligent Storage Cloud services are delivered through a best-of-breed solution offering that combines Cloud Storage Providers (CSP) with Cloud Storage Enablement (CSE) Providers and Cloud Storage Solution (CSS) Providers. This delivery model provides end users with partner choice options at each of the three layers to optimize the value of cloud based storage solutions.

    For a list of companies TwinStrata is working with, see the CloudArray Storage Ecosystem Partners list.

    What is Cloud Storage Enablement?

    Merriam-Webster Online is one of my favorite resources to use as a young professional. It’s a helpful tool to use when doing any writing, either on a professional or personal level. Below are some of my favorite features that M-W.com provides:

    • It contains a dictionary, thesaurus, medical dictionary and even an English-Spanish dictionary in the same search toolbar.
    • Word of the Day emails are a fun way to keep your brain active by learning a new word every day.
    • The Audio Dictionary is helpful for when you’re unsure about the pronunciation of a particular word or phrase.
    • Word games are a fun way to spend some free time, and to remind yourself of all those SAT vocabulary words that you may have forgotten.
    • The Visual Dictionary provides a visual representation of search terms that you look up, for example a diagram of a strawberry.

    March 18, 2010 - Leave a Comment

    For those of you who are American Idol fanatics like some of us at Wi-Ex, Dial Idol might be a fun tool for you and your friends to use this season for making predictions on the winner.

    Dial Idol is a website that uses your modem to call into American Idol and records the results o for each contestant. It runs under the assumption that each call that goes through is a vote. For contestants’ numbers who have a busy signal, the system assumes that there is a higher volume of calls for that contestant, giving them more votes. Dial Idol uses this busy/vote ratio to make a prediction for the rankings of American Idol during each voting night.

    While this website isn’t exact, it does provide a little insight into who is the most in-demand idol, and can help your own predictions for American Idol!
