This blog, its content and opinions are my own. I blog about technology, gadgets, hardware, diversity, where we’re going and where we’ve been. I’m excited about community, social equity, media and all mentioned above.
If you just want to email me, go ahead and send an email to email@example.com but please be nice and make sure you googled around a bit before you do 🙂
Probably at this stage you are wondering on why I have started this blog?
There is loads of similar content on the web where people are explaining all the techie stuff, unfortunately many forget that not everyone is a techie and often listening or reading an article may result in not understanding much and simply wasting a time, the next bad thing we want is to find a supplier who will sell us something not fit for purpose and without understanding much we are very close to become a victim, there are scenarios where purchased system does not meet our expectations and we needed something completely different where on other hand we can be sold very powerful machine which we would never use and would not understand on how it works only spending more and more money. Every seller is trying to make a profit and these days you do not make much on computer hardware, you cannot even store it for long as they will be quickly replaced by something newer, better and often much cheaper which put all of the resellers in a position to sell it as soon as possible with the highest margin available.
This is where I’m coming, with my knowledge and expertise in this subject I will help you understanding and finding what is right for you.
Imagine buying a suit, you can go to the high street shop and get the one you visually like, would it be ok for you? – it could be, would it be ok for wearing every day – depends… here is why I started that blog, imagine you go to the tailor and ask to get you a bespoke suit, it will be premium, will be ideally crafted to you, comfortable, and you will know that this product is premium. The only problem with that would be the price, you buy a premium bespoke product so you expect to pay more BUT what if I tell you that you can get this bespoke, crafted product for similar price then you have seen in retail store so not only you are 100% satisfied but you also saved quite a lot of money and you are certain that product I’m offering will work in your environment.
Sounds like a good deal? Bear with me and join me in this blog.
THE ORIGINS OF DATA STORAGE BLOG
I have done it for a person like you, a video editor, photographer, solicitor or any other professional. These days our media files are growing consistently, just over a decade ago a 1TB drive have been considered large where everyone was more than happy with 250GB – 500GB drives in their systems.
Now all of that has been redefined by the time and technology, we buy external enclosures to store our photos, we go for sophisticated network attached arrays to have our growing movie collections and there are professionals who needs hundreds of Terabytes to store their 4K video footage.
With that in mind it’s quite difficult to find a right solution these days. You do not necessary need to spend thousands of pounds/dollars/euros if you will go for the right solution in the first place. There are few aspects to know before you commit to make a purchase.
With that blog I will try to help you finding what is right for you, imagine a crafted solution for your needs? Is it possible to get something like that? YES, you only need to ask a right person who has no intention overpricing you for it. I will try to cover all of the professions and their needs. Would you be happy to pay for the service first and getting the personalised solution crafted for especially for you? Everyone would, that way you save your own time on research as well as loads of money which then can be put back into your business and work for you.
