Enterprise data storage newcomer Qumulo has emerged from stealth with its first product. The company is touting its first market entry, Qumulo Core, as a data-aware, scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) product.
The BYOD trend, along with strict regulatory requirements for data retention, is fueling demand for data storage at small and medium-sized businesses, IDC analyst Liz Conner tells PC World.
The BYOD trend poses a challenge for data backup administrators because there are many mobile device types to deal with and connectivity is often intermittent, explains freelance tech writer Brien Posey in a TechTarget article.
The global network-attached storage (NAS) market is predicted to increase at a 21.6 percent compound annual growth (CAGR) rate through 2016, according to research by TechNavio.
