Beefing Up Servers For The Cloud

We are in a digital age that is quickly overwhelming humanity with mind-boggling technologies year after year. While it seems that the majority of mankind has openly embraced technology in their lives (especially smartphones and smart gadgets), there are still countless technologies out there that baffle us or we are yet unaware of for good measure. For example, we are all aware of cloud computing and even make use of cloud storage ourselves but that mostly describes what we know about this rising technology.

We know so little about how servers work in cloud computing. We just know that the cloud must need lots of servers to provide storage for all the data coming its way, and we are talking about lots and lots of data from all corners of the world. Fortunately, companies into cloud computing like Amazon are taking care of this matter and ensure our data stay safe and accessible to us in the cloud, so we need not worry about it ourselves.

Organizations make use of cloud infrastructure to take help of cloud computing to perform

Private Servers For Dummies

When we think of servers, we often picture out stacks of these tech wonders housed in pristine environments of major tech companies. This program supports other computer programs in one or more computers used mostly by big enterprises. There are actually different server types depending on their purpose. However, have you ever thought of getting one for yourself? The rise of private servers among small business owners is growing in popularity these days, so it might be an option for you to consider anytime soon.

In layman’s term, a private server is a virtual machine that one administers privately. You don’t just place a server in any location because it often comes within a group. Moreover, servers need sufficient power supply and a stable Internet connection aside from them being obviously noisy too. And just like laptops and computers, you can buy a private server in a similar manner these days.

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) have taken the small business world by storm. The advantages offered by VPS are considerable and can save any business a lot of money, but

Computer Coding Basics You Should Know

Knowledge and understanding of computer are crucial today because computers are used in almost all industries and institutions. If you have a genuine interest in computers and can see yourself making a living (or even a career) out of this interest, then taking computer classes make perfect sense to learn the vital computing skills you need out there in the real world. Computer coding is one of those classes that are getting much attention these days. Basically, computer programs run on codes. These codes tell the computer what to do – from simple text documents to more complex computing tasks.

Even though most people are now using computers in their day-to-day, only a few truly understand how computers work. Some justify their ignorance by the fact that they often use smartphones daily instead of actual computers and that you can always call on tech support for help for most of your computing troubles but wouldn’t it be cool to grasp what happens inside that expensive and sleek device most people and businesses can now live without.

External Hard Drives = Data Loss No More

Computer users know very well how frustrating it can be to deal with data loss. You can lose almost all the data saved on your PC in a snap. That means you have no choice but to say goodbye to all the photos stored in there; not to mention the videos, songs etc. you have painstakingly downloaded only to disappear without any trace. This data is a part of who you are, a virtual remembrance for the virtual life you have lived so far. But thanks to the many vulnerabilities of a regular computer, you can never tell when your hard drive will give up on you.

To save your data (and your memories as well as your sanity), make sure you have a backup plan in place in the form of an external hard drive to ensure no data is lost forever. Yes, you don’t need a genius solution to this age-old data loss dilemma.

Servers Aren’t Safe From Hackers Anymore

The world is becoming smaller and smaller by the day. Thanks to technology, we are now able to achieve so much by doing so little – sounds confusing, right? Technology has become so advanced it has overcome many of the limitations we faced back then. Computer servers have a big role in making all these things happen. They have grown so big and far important in our daily life without us really knowing.

Technically, servers respond to requests issued by another computer program known as the client. While most of us concern ourselves with the mundane issues of life and the occasional computer glitches, cyber hackers all over the world worry about stealing precious data by hacking the computer servers themselves or use it to harass certain people for money. They often target the computer’s software first to be able to access the server and wreak havoc. The crimes can be petty but some can be huge and affect a great number of people.

What To Watch Out For In Computer Servers

The world of technology is always changing. Nothing remains constant because the nature of technology itself is dynamic. It improves and advances as the technology needed for it becomes readily available too. If you look at the computers we are using now, they are unlike the ones we used when growing up. While we may feel nostalgic about Internet explorer back then along with some other features unique to that era, we won’t swap the convenient WiFi access we have now and all the wonders brought by the World Wide Web.

If my memory serves me right, you can’t use the phone when someone is using the computer in the early period of the Internet because duh, dial-up. It somehow makes you feel good you now live in the age of social media and smart gadgets because life seemed so much more alive even though you don’t physically interact with people. And then there’s the cloud. Well, it is a different concept now that we think of cloud computing. Even computer servers themselves have completely evolved.

How Has Enterprise Storage Changed Over The Years?

Everything around us changes, always evolving. Even us humans have changed a lot over the years. Some experts claim we descended from apes but others contradict it. This argument has been dragging on for years and the answer may likely continue to elude us. But when it comes to technology, recorded history has done its best to keep track of technological advancements that we can definitely check and counter-check events and how certain concepts came to be.

Among the most important aspects of technology is data storage. Data means a lot to all of us. From the data that allows us to access the web to the data that we share and keep, we spend a great deal of our time, effort and money in securing these data. While most of you have no idea what enterprise storage is all about, it is often used by large organizations in the storage and retrieval of data that they use. Large amounts of data and lots of users are all in a day’s work for these huge enterprise storage repositories, so …

Lost Data? Recover It In 1-2-3

Data has evolved to become a truly precious commodity now. The word meant little to us a decade ago and we would likely relate it to plain information but it holds more power in our modern tech-crazed society now. Smart gadgets are life. The Internet is the place to be. Data is everything. You need data to access the web and you create data from all the files you share online or input on your computer – from that high school photo you can’t wait to post next Thursday as your throwback picture or that entire collection of movies you’ve accumulated through the years to the important documents that signifies all your achievements in life.

We value all this data highly and will move heaven and earth to get them back in the unlikely case of losing it or having it accidentally deleted. Data recovery is the process of salvaging your lost data whatever the reason may be. While some brave souls attempt to recover their lost data by themselves, it is always advised to have an expert look into …

Watch Out For This Windows 10 Update

Computers are no longer luxury items these days. They are necessities that not only connect us with the World Wide Web and social media but allow us to do lots of mundane things that we can’t live without. Windows PCs are the popular choice while some prefer the more expensive Apple computers that revolutionized the computing world. For the longest time, Windows 7 was the popular choice because it is easy to use and it has almost everything you’ll ever need in an operating system.

Updates are inevitable, though, because systems need to be upgraded to keep up with the times. These updates often have the fixes for commonly reported bugs and defects as well as improvements on certain features. Microsoft has gone a long way and has since then offered Windows 8 (which wasn’t quite the hit they expected), and now, Windows 10.

The reason it’s called the Creators Update again is because it will contain more ‘creative’ features. Hopefully including some of the things Microsoft promised in the April Creators update but which never materialised.

Can Windows 10 Live Up To Its Promise?

We all loved Windows 7. Well, almost all of us.  And for quite a long time, most computing devices ran on Windows 7 and were quite contented with it actually. However, times are changing and we should keep abreast with all the changes and tech advancements now made available to the masses. Microsoft launched Windows 8 for that very purpose several years back. Unfortunately, it fell short of its glory and PC sales actually went down ever since its release.

Fortunately, Microsoft is trying to redeem itself with the release of Windows 10. It’s been two years now and millions of devices are already using it. So far so good. It’s like Windows 7 but has definitely leveled up and proving to be at par with the technology we have today.

Microsoft’s latest version of Windows is faring better than its maligned predecessor, but the software’s growth is still stunted by a shift away from personal computers.

Windows 10 is now running on a half-billion devices nearly two years after its release, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella disclosed Wednesday during the

Maximizing Storage Space On Your PC

Almost each household now has a computer or laptop or even more. It comes in handy not only for work or school tasks but even for storing photos, movies, videos, and other virtual memory you cherish most. Unfortunately, your computer’s hard drive can only save a certain amount and it has its limit. If your hard drive is damaged, meanwhile, your storage capacity gets worse. And when it does, you have no choice but to save one temporarily on a flash drive, purchase a pricey external hard drive, or worse, delete extra stuff.

While deleting them is not an option you delight in, it happens at times (albeit with a heavy heart). But if you find yourself in a similar situation now, don’t just throw in the towel yet. Back stuff up, and avoid having to pay data recovery service prices (http://www.harddriverecovery.org/pricing.html). We’ll try to find ways how we can maximize computer storage space without sacrificing the memories you have made along the way.

What You Need To Know About SSD And Its Recovery

We deal with technology on a regular basis. The majority of the population go online through their phones and tablets, many still access the web through computers and laptops, especially students, professionals, and entrepreneurs who have more advanced computing needs.

While most computers have a built-in hard drive for storage, some have external drives (read about recovering them here), some use SSDs instead. A solid-state drive wasn’t really an option for many in the past because of its high price but its price has gone considerably over the last few years. And as such, SSDs become a more reasonable expense for many. It offers computer users all the benefits of your average hard drive with a few extra bonuses.

The issue of SSD drive life is coming to the fore – the economics of solid state storage is being turned on its head thanks to the introduction of longer-lasting enterprise SSDs.

In short, the SSD lifetime is getting longer – and with time will grow far longer.

Are You Ready To Go Quantum?

We can’t stop progress much more that related to technology. The things we have now were only a dream to many ten to twenty years ago. And look how far the human race has come. While we continue to enjoy all the perks offered by technology (and perhaps not love the drawbacks – http://www.harddriverecovery.org/ms-exchange-data-recovery.html) to us, there is more waiting for everyone and we can’t stop it from coming.

We may be blown away by the technology we now use but are you prepared to take things to the next level? The future of computing is quantum. And that’s the direction experts in the field are taking us. While you’ve probably heard the term “quantum” back as a student, it is something you need to reorient yourself with because it is the future that is waiting for all of us.

Why Windows 10 Is Facing A Major Backlash

While only a handful of the population has ever used a Mac computer or even laid eyes on it, the rest of us can certainly agree that a Windows PC is our go-to PC for all our computing needs. So, as most of us bid a fond goodbye to the much-loved Windows operating system – Windows 7 – because it’s finally time for all of us to move on. However, those who have already taken the leap and upgraded to the latest Windows 10 OS are having mixed reactions with it.

We can’t deny that there will always be glitches with any new system. Not all require  level three data recovery services (http://www.harddriverecovery.org/clean_room.html). And while it has been a while since the Windows 10 OS was released to the public, the company is now facing a serious multi-million dollar class lawsuit from a few people who really had a bad experience with Windows 10 after being forced to make the upgrade.

Released in July 2015, Windows 10 was offered as a free upgrade for one year to any

How Do Servers Protect You?

We all use technology in our everyday life. From the most mundane of things such as getting in touch with family and friends, checking out the latest and trending topics on the web and online shopping to the most sensitive of tasks like online banking, we all rely on our flashy and techy gadgets to do the job for us. And while there are a few frustrating moments, these devices mostly do the job 90% of the time.

However, considering the massive amount of sensitive data you deal with every day (and your PC), how sure are you that these data are protected once they get to the web? There are definitely some mechanical issues with storage devices that must be watched for (see here: http://www.harddriverecovery.org/data-recovery-services.html). Also, we can’t ignore the fact that many hackers out there are just waiting for their moment to strike to steal your data for a profit.

New Facebook Server To Watch Out For

Servers are at the core of the operation of any system – whether for businesses or government agencies. These servers deal with precious consumer data and even provide security and storage., despite certain hard drive dangers that can affect them. What’s more, even newer SSD driven servers can have issues. And servers continue to improve and develop as more people take their businesses and transactions to the web.

The popularity of social media and the convenience offered by the web for people looking for answers-  even to the most sensitive of issues –  the web managed to ingrain itself as a human need and no longer a luxury. And as the population explodes and more people patronize the Internet, servers play an even bigger role in keeping everything and everyone safe day in and day out.

Facebook needs powerful computers in order to store and process the millions of photos and videos it maintains for its users.
