New Articles at 2BrightSparks

Since our last newsletter, we have published two new articles that explains how SyncBackPro backs up to Amazon Glacier and an introductory article on hashing.

Amazon Glacier

Amazon Glacier is an inexpensive cloud service offered by Amazon for data archiving and long-term storage. Given that Glacier is designed to be a data archiving center, the way SyncBackPro backs up files to (or from) Glacier is slightly different. This article will prove useful for users interested in using this Amazon service or anybody who is seeking a low-cost cloud backup solution.

Introduction to Hashing and its uses

If you are transferring a file from one computer to another, how do you ensure that the copied file is the same as the source? One method you could use is called hashing. Two hash values (of the original file and its copy) can be compared to ensure the files are equal. This article outlines what hashing is and how it is used.



2BrightSparks Website Updates
