If you happened to be in attendance at CES (Consumers Electronic Show) 2014 in Las Vegas, you might have picked up some information about the Internet of Things. It seems, to our ears, the Internet of Things has gone from a small and interesting topic of conversation at Cloud trade shows, to an industry with the potential the change the way the world functions. Point in case, as overheard at CES2014: We have to say, that is a pretty bold prediction. “The Internet of Everything will be five to ten times more impactful in the next decade than the entire Internet has been to date.” We suppose coming from John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco, we have to put some weight behind the prediction.

Local Backups vs. Cloud Backups

With the Cloud becoming more and more popular for the public, a debate has popped up between Cloud providers and Cloud users. That debate centers around the use of Local Data Backups vs. Cloud Data Backups.
