What is SSD? It is likely that you have come across this abbreviation – especially if you’ve been looking to purchase a new PC or laptop or equipping an existing one. This modern storage technology conquers many technical areas for end consumers and professional industrial users alike. We’ll show you what SSD is in computing and what it stands for.
CaaS – Container-as-a-Service – is the latest model in the cloud computing market: users can find suitable platforms for all established infrastructure providers. But what actually is CaaS? And what is the difference between CaaS and other cloud services, like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)? Here we introduce hosted container...
Anyone who wants to make use of the possibilities of a collaboration cloud while retaining full control over their data can fulfill this wish by hosting their own cloud server service. Two corresponding solutions that can be operated on almost any server are ownCloud and Nextcloud. The ownCloud vs Nextcloud comparison will follow in this article.
Many people use several devices and have data stored on them. What should you do if your data carrier fails, or the data gets lost? Backing up data is extremely important, and an online backup makes perfect sense. By doing this, you don’t risk losing your important files. What is the best option? Here is a comparison of online backup service providers.
What are the differences between SSD and HDD? Our SSD vs. HDD comparison presents the essential information of both storage technologies. We’ll also give you tips as to which hard drive technology is best suited for select applications. Will it be the mature and inexpensive hard disk drive or the fast and more expensive solid-state drive?
Bits and bytes are part of our daily life, whether we’re aware of it or not. They’re the units of measurement for storage capacity and data transmission - meaning that you’ll need to know about them when shopping for a new computer or deciding on a WiFi package. But what is a bit? And how does it differ from a byte? Keep reading to find out more about the smallest unit of information.
The brontobyte - officially this quantity of data doesn’t even exist. In short, the brontobyte is big data - 1 brontobyte is equivalent to 1024 bytes. Such a huge quantity of data is near incomprehensible and probably won’t become relevant for our daily lives for a very long time. But for tech giants, it’s only a matter of time until we reach the era of the brontobyte. Keep reading to find out...
Units of storage in computers, such as megabytes and terabytes, refer to quantities of data and storage capacities. Users will be familiar with units like gigabytes as they relate to hard drives and USB sticks. But units like exabytes and zettabytes rarely come up in daily life. Keep reading to find out which storage units exist and what they really mean.
Usually, users have little reason to engage with the file system on their computer. However, it’s worth having an understanding of the topic, because hardware performance, data security, and compatibility with other devices and network-based data exchange depend on file systems.
Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive micro-computer that can behave like a standard computer in many respects. The innovative mini device can be used for a wide range of tasks - from setting up an operating system to surfing the web, to using it as a server or a media center. Discover these interesting Raspberry Pi projects to try out at home.
