Database Dilemma: Choosing The Best For Your Company [65394]
The Datacenter Journal, August 4th, 2017

"The term cloud means something different to everyone. For this article, we'll define it in relation to infrastructure: the cloud is the ability to autoprovision a subset of available compute/network/storage to meet a specific business need through virtualization (IaaS).

Data Center Knowledge, August 1st, 2017

"Let's be honest, most of us have inherited a database administrator gig.

Datamation, July 27th 2017

"Big data analytics is quickly gaining adoption. Enterprises have awakened to the reality that their big data stores represent a largely untapped gold mine that could help them lower costs, increase revenue and become more competitive. They don't just want to store their vast quantities of data, they want to convert that data into valuable insights that can help improve their companies.

As a result, investment in big data analytics tools is seeing remarkable gains. According to IDC, worldwide sales of big data and business analytics tools are likely to reach $150.8 billion in 2017, which is 12.4 percent higher than in 2016.
