The personal Home Cloud

Recently I was asked by a family member if I would transfer data from an older computer, to their new laptop. For the first time this seemed strange to me. With the array of storage solutions in the market today how much data are we keeping on our personal computers.
I realize there were risks with portable disk drive solutions, but with the low cost of RAID NAS devices, the redundancy should preserve those fears. With our connectivity dependencies, and the cloud like software services in todays NAS devices, how far are we to this technology being a constant, like a smartphone?

Sure, public cloud solutions are robust, large, and largely platform independent. They also have more integration options, but we’ll always be limited by performance where we are online the most in our personal computing, home.

Sync you say? The reality of replication, is it often exceeds storage availability in our smartphones and tablets. I’ve had less that stellar success segregating the data I sync to each device purposefully. Music on my phone, photos on the tablet, web & PhotoShop files on my laptop.

What if the NAS was the primary target, it replicated with the public cloud, and every device supported on demand sync, to the NAS or public cloud, with granular replication options. Can this be done?

Bootstrap can help…

Being a developer is hard work. It takes vision, creativity, and a whole lot of patience. Often we look for complicated solutions to extend our legacy code to breach the demands of the growing user platform landscape. If the browser wars weren’t enough, the workforce wants connection while on that cheap semi-smart thing they just got for a steal from Amazon on Black Friday. That old javascript just met it’s match.

There is good news. Sure, it won’t be easy, and it won’t be perfect. But with a little patience, creativity, and vision you can get there, and you don’t have to do all the work. BootStrap, and W3.CSS from bring the tools of responsive design to you. You can focus on the data dynamics, instead of the presentation layer; while helping the office achieve mobility.

Great work…. let’s go another round on DOOM!

When 10GB is within reach….

It’s 2015. You’ve expanded your network. You built out Gigabit Ethernet to every desktop years ago. You deployed an enterprise wireless footprint. Somehow, the consumerization of IT still raced past you. You serve twice as many devices, and over half of them are wireless. Each work area, in addition to the desktop you provided, now has at least a smart phone and a tablet for each user. Those Gigabit ports that used to be exclusive to a single user, are now an Access Point bottleneck. No one understands why it feels slower. You’ve considered the next generation technology, but it’s too soon. Will it back haul?

10GB is within reach. The equipment costs are reasonable, and the implementation is point and click. What about the backbone? Good news!! That old Fiber Optics you inherited, that are 6′ under the ground interconnecting the far corners of your enterprise was beyond it’s years. Sure, many will tell you it’s better to replace it. And it probably is, for the next decade. But what if, just what if you could save up a few more years of capital first. Replacing the fiber alone won’t achieve the results. Today’s SR and LR Transceivers, depending on the cable length, can work with that 62.5um FDDI fiber optics; bridging the gap until you can make that investment for the next 10 years.

It’s light, not light years.
