Cloud Storage Box gets 150 million dollars

The online storage service, Box, has raised $ 150 million in fresh money from investors while its IPO continues to be delayed.

Spending on sales and marketing increased 40 percent to $ 47.4 million, exceeding sales. Box with its offer of online storage competes with other specialized providers like Dropbox – but also with technology heavyweights like Google, Microsoft or Apple.

Cloud computing is one of the major trends in the economy – but only in the economy? No, especially for educational and research institutions cloud-based solutions offer great potential. 


The second condition is not so often realized: the standardization of operating systems and hardware. To achieve continuous automated processes, such as the version numbers of the operating systems must be identical. Once they have different patch level or even differences in the interfaces for automation tools or remote access, exception rules are necessary. This increases complexity and possible sources of error. Thus over time grown, often heterogeneous population is to unify, whereby corresponding investment costs. But these pay for themselves relatively quickly by significantly more efficient and flexible processes automation.
