Therefore, one should not neglect the creation of an “extra” incremental backup before updating the system. If a company cannot afford to “waste time” on “preventative” backup, then you should consider using a failover cluster, automatic hardware snapshots of storage systems, or other ways to ensure the system’s constant availability without compromising the reliability of ...

Palantir could be heading for a huge IPO, but its CEO says it almost went out of business several times because he didn't know how to pitch to investors

In the early days of the company, Palantir struggled with selling to investors and nearly went out of business several times, Palantir CEO Alex Karp said.
