How to Easily Setup a Hybrid Cloud Environment
Steve Ferris
Few things travel as far and as fast as media. When creative teams work together over distances, the cloud is what connects them.

And while cloud solutions can be very secure, storing data offline adds even more security by eliminating remote threats.
