Alpha Data - Past, Present and Future


FLASH BACK

Timeline: Year 1981.

Raegan and Brezhnev were busy with what they did best – Cold war. NASA launched the world’s first space shuttle - Columbia. IBM introduced the first “Personal Computer” with Microsoft’s operating system, MS DOS. Many of you reading this blog were not born. For some of you, the biggest priority in life was the very next diaper change. I was struggling in Grade 5, was wondering whether I would ever pass 10th Grade.

When I travel



When planning a holiday, it is very important for me to consider 3 rules to have an enjoyable trip. First is that the journey to whatever destination should be easy, not too many connecting flights or other forms of travel to get to the destination. Second is to have enough time to relax on the holiday, I am not a fan of the “country tour” where every destination has to be seen and half the holiday time is spent on a bus. Last is to stay in a hotel or accommodation which is safe and comfortable with enough space to be able to relax without feeling the need to get out all of the time because the room is small.

In early September, I spent a memorable three days at VMworld 2015 in San Francisco. In my time on the floor, I talked with a number of IT leaders and was pleased to note an expanding, keen interest in hyper-convergence (HC) - a great development, considering the exciting opportunities that HC opens up for companies looking to achieve all the benefits of a truly integrated, software-defined infrastructure. (For a quick overview of the advantages, watch this ChalkTalk video.)

Internet Usage Statistics



When Tim Bernars Lee first invented the World Wide Web, as a protocol, he didn’t imagine to see his baby controlling the traffic of the day to day life around the world, sending and receiving million if not billions of emails and tweets rather than posts every here and there!
