As a managed service provider, a primary business concern is whether your current portfolio is sufficient in meeting all of your clients' IT needs. Customers are, after all, demanding more from their providers to keep availability for their enterprises always-on. Today’s increasing demands mean managed service providers must be a one-stop shop for all IT needs. When it comes to backing up data, many organizations are seeking to leverage the cloud for both their physical and virtual workloads, and have a need to back up and consolidate both instances into a single and secure environment. And, with this strategy, the need for a reliable agent solution to back up physical workloads becomes increasingly important.

How virtualization helped Dell make a pandemic pivot

Article | April 14, 2021

Danny Cobb, fellow and vice president of engineering for Dell Technologies’ telco systems business, remembers his company cruising into early 2020: Kicking off a new fiscal year with its operating plan in place, supply chain nailed down and factories humming; people coming into the office each day to the usual routine of looking for parking spots and taking laptops down to the cafeteria.

Article | February 12, 2020

My personal homelab has a very simple network topology, everything is connected to a single flat network.
