Should You Take A Shot At Data Recovery?

Data makes the world go round. Most of us don’t realize it yet but that is the hard-hitting truth. Data is precious that we’d move heaven and earth to get it back once we lose it whatever the reason may be. However, dealing with technology is a tricky matter. One simple mistake can wipe out all your data in an instant and there is no other way for you to get it back. People often panic right away when they can’t access their hard drive especially when they need to find something in that instant. But panicking often leads to more costly mistakes that were avoidable if you only stayed level-headed the entire time.

The most common cause for hard drive failure is software-related and the second one does not have anything to do with you but on the hard drive itself. However, you should not just mess up with hard drives if you have no idea what you are doing because you might inflict more damage than what was previously. There are different ways to fixing it depending on the extent and the nature of the problem. But should you take your chance in fixing it to save a few dollars? It’s up to you on how confident you are on your technical skills but here are some DIY tips for the brave at heart.

Some less technical and slightly more unconventional DIY recovery process that are also becoming

Malware Continues To Threaten Computer Servers All Over The World

The world is run by computers. It is the reality of our times these days. Almost every nation has centralized their operations and relies heavily on digital data in their every affair. It has transformed the delivery of basic services into a smooth and efficient system that gets the job done every time. Unfortunately, like any form of technology, criminals have found their way to make money from it and this has put a risk countless computer servers all over the world from costly malware that are meant to cripple your system and even your life (and put your business on hold).

Malware attacks are increasingly becoming common now especially among Windows PCs. Cyber criminals are using the technology itself to mess with even more technology for monetary gain. If you are not careful enough, you might end up a victim of these cyber criminals and be asked to pay bitcoins as ransom to get your data back like what happened to thousands of individuals and organizations quite recently when a ransomware attack affected over 200,000 computers.

While not acknowledging any failure on Microsoft’s part for the havoc wreaked by the WannaCry computer worm, Phillip Misner, a Microsoft security expert, said in a blog post that the company had found it “painful” to see so many customers affected. The flaw in Windows first came to light in March, when a leak of cyber weapons developed by the US National Security

Understanding Data Warehouse Automation

For an ordinary person, we likely hear crickets chirping when we hear others talk extensively about computers using unheard of computer jargons. Understanding many of these computer concepts and terms isn’t an easy feat, so we often just stick to what we know best: social media and the Internet.

However, if you are an entrepreneur, you need to familiarize yourself with these tech concepts especially if you have plans of expanding your business across different platforms and corners of the globe. Going digital is inevitable and you need to have a great and efficient computing system in place to manage and store your data, so you know just what is happening to your business all the time.

To quote the Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) from WhereScape’s own pages, “Data warehouse automation is much more than simply automating the development process. It encompasses all of the core processes of data warehousing including design, development, testing, deployment, operations, impact analysis, and change management.”

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 are more obvious in the small business community where a few thousand dollars can mean the difference between success and failure.

A VPS removes the need for your company to have its own physical servers. Access to a VPS gives your company the same advantages of having a physical server, but the operating system is run on the cloud. Anything
