As a person who dislikes having my picture taken, it frightening to imagine that video of me is being recorded far more often than I may realize. Let's look at a typical day. Your drive to work may be recorded by city municipalities analyzing traffic patterns and recorded for local security.  The coffee shop where you pick up your morning rocket fuel has you captured on multiple cameras that feed information to their DVR.  If you work in retail or the hospitality industry you're most likely being recorded all day long. In most professional offices there is recording in public areas. Stop to get gas, groceries or dine out on your way home, you're being recorded on more cameras than you can keep track of.

Today's connected world of expanding data springs from a mix of social networking applications, cloud activities, and online transaction processing. Most of this data is exploited through server virtualization trends and everything converges to generate ever-increasing communication demands - I/O operations - on the storage infrastructure of IT organizations.

A great example of an innovative environment where demands for rich content, increased communication speeds, and a need for reliable, scalable storage infrastructure continues to be a big challenge this year can be found in the media and entertainment industry. According to a Coughlin Associates digital storage report from 2013, the media and entertainment industry can expect about a 5x increase in the required digital stor...

Well maybe Golf and Storage have nothing in common other than you need a golf bag to store your clubs. However, this year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Toshiba Classic Golf Tournament and Fred Couples broke through what was at one point a nine-way tie for the lead today, when he birdied the 18th hole and clinched his second Toshiba Classic victory.

Toshiba is the longest-running title sponsor on the Champions Tour, and the Toshiba Classic is the most charitable event on the circuit, bringing in $1 million per year to beneficiary Hoag Hospital. The 2014 event will benefit the Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center at Hoag Hospital for the fourth consecutive year.

In addition to its tournament involvement, Toshiba and the tournament have donated ne...
