Go Native – With Methodics at DAC in Austin
by Tom Simon on 06-01-2016 at 7:00 am

DAC is often a yearly reflection point for the companies that exhibit and attend. For the innovators it is an opportunity to look back and see a year of progress and development. Fortunately, this is the case for Methodics, which has had a strong year both in terms of business and technical development. Though, we easily see how these… Read More

WarpStor, the Data Tardis: Small on the Outside, Large on the Inside
by Paul McLellan on 05-28-2015 at 7:00 am

There is a data explosion:

  • IBM says that 90% of all data was created in the last 2 years
  • Smartphone processor development requires 100GB of data per engineer
  • Android testing requires 30GB times the number of tests times the number of testers
  • Biotech simulation, game development and more all require enormous amounts of data

This … Read More
