Colocation is the process of buying a server and installing it in a professional grid that is held and managed by another company. You own the server, but the rack that you place it on and the bandwidth that you partake of belong to the other business. Typically, companies with enough room to “rent” their backspace will charge a fee to allow other companies to bring in their servers. However, colocation is a growing solution for smaller businesses that want to offer plenty of web solutions and a highly professional Internet. Advantages include:
1. More For Lower Expenses:
When compared to buying a business line and paying entirely for personal bandwidth, colocation is markedly less expensive for companies that want their own server but and comparable bandwidth speeds.

A hybrid cloud expands a private network with infinite resources, which means a business can grow without any hardware or software upgrades on the local network.
When traffic spikes increase, the resource usage increases and must be upgraded if performance issues occur. The upgrades and hardware expenses are lowered when the business incorporates a hybrid cloud. The traffic spikes “spill” into the cloud host’s resources, which take up the slack for overloaded servers. The end result is a fast network that facilitates growth while keeping infrastructure costs at a minimum. Here’s a look at the various components of hybrid cloud architecture that make it all possible.
The cloud controller is a divider between the Internet and its requests and the hybrid cloud. The cloud controller determines the route to which the traffic will go for the best response. It also determines if the traffic needs to use the hybrid public cloud for additional …

The web was created and launched by researchers at CERN in 1989, with the first public web server instructions launched almost exactly 20 years ago in 1993. Over the decades, the web has grown from a tiny part of the Internet, accounting for just 1% of traffic in its earliest days.
Today, there are over 630 million websites, yet the fundamentals of layout and how they are structured have changed little. Catalogue-style navigation still harks back to an era of print design, and is more compatible with laptop or PC devices as opposed to tablets, smartphones and other new technologies.
Chuck Longanecker of PandoDaily.com said that websites were still aspiring to the standards of print, holding designers back from exploring more creative, user-friendly designs.
“Still tied to the same print-based paradigms and catalog-style navigation, these outdated formats now shackle designers to a limited framework that prevents them from truly exploring the advantages inherent in the …
If you own an iPhone 5, whether you know it or not, you’re already a user of the new Nano SIM card modules. Apple is known for being a technological pioneer, and it was the first manufacturer that brought us the previous generation Micro SIM cards, which all major phone manufacturers have now adopted as a mainstream standard.
SIM stands for subscriber identity (or identification) module. It is an integrated circuit that stores the identity and related key of the user, in a secure way used to authenticate subscribers on mobile telephony devices.
A SIM card embeds a SIM in a removable plastic and metal strip, used to identify the mobile subscriber to the network without which the device is useless. The original SIM card was made the same size as credit cards (85.60 mm x 53.98 mm x 0.76 mm) and was never widely used. Technically speaking, the SIM cards we …

Panoramic photography is a unique photography technique that requires specialized software or equipments, which capture pictures with stretched fields of view.

As with most things in this world, scientific progress tends to make our lives easier as time goes on. In the packing and shipping industry, the same holds true. Conventional injection molding was the—well—convention for quite some time.

Congratulations on going after your dream of owning or expanding a business. Just getting this far, to the point where you’re starting to file for licenses, permits and educate yourself about the types of workers (i.e. consultants, part-time employees) you could hire, is a commendable step forward. If you’ve been researching the business ownership or expansion process for a few weeks, you probably know how important it is that you infuse sufficient capital into your business.
Unless you’re the heir to thousands or millions of dollars, have existing capital from another business you recently sold or another source of expendable income, you’ve likely come to the realization that, to fund your business expansion or start-up, you may have to seek a bank loan. Of course, you could also seek out funding from an angel investor. Either way, you’ll have to build and present your bank or an investor with a solid …
