News Bits: Netlist Gets New Patent, Unitrends' New Backup Solutions, & HPE Partners With Zerto
We receive quite a bit of news every week, some times dozens of pieces per week. While we strive to cover those topics that are most relevant to our readers or the topics we think that our readers will be most interested in, we can't cover them all. Other times we are presented with several pieces that are just too short to be their own story. So we will be taking the shorter pieces throughout the week and combining them into one "News Bits" piece, even if the news presented isn't necessarily related.
