What Is The Mandela Effect? And What Does It Have to Do With Data Protection?
The Mandela Effect is a phenomenon in which a large number of people report memories of an event that never happened. And like many who swing their lightsabers and ominously intone, “Luuuuke” (even though that’s not in the film), so too there are people who believe that by storing their data in the cloud, the data is automatically protected. Find out how to turn that Mandela Effect into a Clumio Effect.

The Definitive Guide to Backing Up Data in AWS

Managing an environment that spans multiple technologies can add to IT complexity, as you work to integrate solutions and provide a seamless user experience.

Quote of the Month
“When it is so easy to spin up infrastructure, guess what? That’s what people do. You don’t even know where data is. And if somebody by mistake – whether it’s a script doing it or an internal malicious user – goes and deletes data, you don’t even know that data got deleted. By the time you come to know, it might be too late.”
