IceWEB, Inc. (OTC:IWEB) a leading provider of Unified Data
Storage appliances for cloud and virtual environments, today
announced the launch of the IceWEB 6500.
The IceWEB 6500 unified data system simplifies the management and
efficiency of data center environments by providing all-inclusive
storage for both block and file data across multiple protocols including
Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and Oracle databases, virtualized
environments as well as unstructured data such as scanned images, files,
videos, pictures, graphics, and voice – on IceWEB’s single
enterprise-class platform. Visit http://www.iceweb.com/Products/6500-Unified-Storage-System.aspx
for more information on the IceWEB 6500.
Rob Howe, IceWEB CEO said, “The IceWEB 6500 is far more than just an
addition to our product lineup. It's full-tilt clustered storage at
eye-popping low prices. The IceWEB 6500 offers simplicity, scalability,
flexibility and advanced Integration. While that may just sound like a
list of features, and it is; it's a list of highly advanced features
found only in unified storage systems that cost orders of magnitude more
than the IceWEB 6500. That translates into massive savings for our
customers who desperately need professional-level solutions to solve
their storage requirements while they deal with frozen or fast-shrinking
budgets. So this is not just another new product from IceWEB; this is an
astounding amount of value for our customers at a time when they really
need it that makes good business sense.”
Top 5 reasons to buy the IceWEB 6500 :
1. Entry-level clustered storage – provides an affordable entry
point for customers who want unified storage with the security of high
2. Scalability – provides an excellent starting for today’s
growing data infrastructures. System will scale to 100’s of TB behind a
single pair of controllers without sacrificing performance.
3. Flexibility – provides 8x1GB network interfaces and the
ability to setup dual-active cluster nodes to leverage the processing
power of both cluster nodes simultaneously
4. Simplicity – Existing customers can use the current management
interface to administer the 6500 with no re-training required. For new
customers, the GUI represents a simple, easy-to-use,
single-pane-of-glass interface allowing easy administration and
5. Advanced Integration – the system integrates with all of the
most popular storage protocols, including CIFS, NFS, FTP, iSCSI, and FC.
In addition, IceWEB can provide customers with private cloud failover
functionality through the use of snapshots and off-site replication.
a. Backup Application – IceWEB natively integrates with backup
protocols, like NDMP, to provide robust backup solutions to customers.
We recommend the use of Novastor Business Essentials for customers with
desktop and application server backup requirements.
b. Virtualization – IceWEB supports virtualization technologies
using of iSCSI and NFS for many of the popular virtualization platforms.
c. Disaster Recovery (private cloud) – IceWEB products enable
customers to setup High Availability and site-level failover through our
advanced replication technology.
IceWEB manufactures award-winning, high performance unified data storage
appliances with enterprise storage management capabilities at a fraction
of the price of traditional providers, while reducing space, power and
cooling requirements and simplifying storage management for land-based,
virtual and cloud environments. For more information please call

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives.
Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
