How to configure a cheap, secure RAID backup system
We usually store our photos, documents, and more on a single hard disk—or, increasingly these days, a solid state drive (SSD)—but there's always the nagging worry that the disk will fail, taking all your work and memories with it. Backing up using Time Machine, Super Duper!, or CrashPlan, say, is a good way of reducing this risk, but there is another: RAID. RAID can be incredibly complicated, but it's extremely worthwhile—one of the things it can do is to mirror the contents of one disk completely to another, all the time. While cloning your hard disk using Super Duper!, for example, is something that might happen once a day, with a RAID system, every bit of data that's written to one disk is simultaneously written to the second, so that if one drive fails, you have a perfect copy of everything it contained on the second. (And optionally, if you replace the failed drive, everything will be mirrored back across to it automatically.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Cloud providers themselves are increasingly consolidating. Let's look at each of these briefly and consider some implications.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Why IBM is hiring 1,000 software designers
IBM is one of the latest traditional technology behemoths to see design as a key differentiator in enterprise software. In a session at last week's Cultivate Conference (co-located with the influential open-source OSCON event in Portland), IBM's General Manager of Design (apparently a real position) Phil Gilbert told attendees about Big Blue's attempt to create a "culture of design" at the 130-year-old company.Beyond "Big Blue" "We want to bring design to everything we do," Gilbert said, which means changing the people, practices, and places involved in creating software. To help make that happen, he added, the company is committed to hiring 1,000 formally trained designers in the next six years.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
