As the storage market continues to grow and change, IT administrators must keep their knowledge and skills sharp.... But it's not easy to stay current on the most pressing issues in the storage world or stay up to date with all the newest cloud storage tips and data storage tricks. To that end, we took a look back at the most-read SSD and cloud storage tips of 2017. Keep reading to get the details on the issues and developments that mattered most to SearchStorage readers over the past year.
Organizations don't have to limit themselves to one cloud. In fact, using multiple clouds together to support the diverse data storage and access needs of various departments and user groups is often more beneficial for workers and IT administrators. Multiple clouds give companies the opportunity to better protect their data. When it's dispersed across different vendors' clouds -- and even an on-premises one -- a failure in one cloud won't shut down the whole business.
When I buy baby food for my 8-month old, I have to be a responsible consumer. So I do my homework before I get to the grocery store. If you're after the best SSD performance, you must do the same thing. I didn’t pick the baby food that I feed my little girl out of thin air; I researched and decided what I wanted, then I found brands that fit my requirements. Is it a little over the top? Probably. I don't have the "right" products -- I have the right ones for my family.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
