When we first started Storage Made Easy (or SMEStorage as it was in its original incarnation) we had a vision of software that provided a unification hub for corporate data, a single place where companies could manage content and set common policies for their company data..
Our vision embraced multicloud early, in fact way before multicloud was in-vogue the company’s tagline was ‘SMEStorage the multicloud company’.
The very first Cloud connector we added was Amazon S3, way before Amazon Web Services was the behemouth it is today.
Although it is hard to be aware of it in the eye of the storm, we are currently undergoing a fourth industrial revolution, centred around data. The last industrial revolution from the 1970’s brought us many of the things that we are familiar with today. Efficiency improvements in the storage, access and analysis of data is what is fuelling the fourth industrial revolution and includes industry changing technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IOT).
