Why DevOps?

by Tina Lutz

Many companies experience a toxic culture of an "us versus them" mentality; IT versus the rest of the company. This can often be tracked back to a lack of empathy between IT and operations. Software development teams tend to focus on implementing a project with little to no foresight of how to operationally manage the application after delivery. This mentality can stem from a myriad of reasons.

Tizbi’s Continues Improvements to Backup Protocols

by Alexander Birger

For many years Tizbi developed and distributed its own backup software to all of its servers because there was no other backup software on the market at the time that fit its operational model. The Tizbi backup software was robust, good at what it was intended to do, and complete with off-site backup features, but also inflexible and complex. As time went by, and Tizbi’s business operations expanded, there grew also an impending need to perform a holistic update to the backup system.
