How To Build Your Network Security Knowledge

October 22, 2013 |

Businesses and organizations of all types rely to a large extent on internal computer networks. These link up different computers within an organization so that data can be shared from one computer to another. They may be internally wired networks, or networks that are structured in the cloud to take advantage of the possibility of remote web storage. For the many organizations that rely on these networks, the thought of a malicious attack or hack is terrifying. With the potential for network disruption and data loss, these are risks that simply cannot be taken by those responsible for maintaining these systems.

Network security degree programs are among the best points of entry into this subject. Not everyone has the benefit of a network security degree, or even a more basic formal education in this area. So for those without the relevant contextual knowledge, how possible is it to build a working, usable insight into network … Read More

Hospitals Get An Easy Win With VDI

October 9, 2013 |

Hospital IT concerns are carefully balanced on a scale of cost savings and patient responsibility. Often, these are opposing needs. The best in medical tech isn’t the cheapest. It’s a sad reality that much of what’s best for patients isn’t what’s best for keeping hospital doors open. And so, doctors and administrators have to weigh priorities and make tough decisions to balance budgets.

But occasionally something comes along that’s both cost-effective and great for patients. In today’s tech environment, that’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). This technology runs a desktop environment through any computer, tablet or smartphone with access to it.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is BYOD’s more responsible older sister. Instead of weighing hospital employee devices down with unnecessary apps and slow-moving programs, VDIs give employees a way to access information without having any native programs on their devices.

This alleviates employees’ concerns about privacy and … Read More

Are Dedicated Servers Worth It?

September 4, 2013 |

Before you decide whether dedicated servers are worth the investment for your business or not, you have to understand the main benefits of using dedicated servers in comparison with the ones that arise from using standard shared web hosting.

First of all, with shared web hosting your websites files are at risk, because you will have them stored on the same server with other websites. Thus, if there is any problem that is experienced by other websites, it will affect the performance of your own website. Dedicated servers will save you from this mess. When you use dedicated servers, you will not share your server space with other people. Thus, you will get maximum performance for your website.

SSD versus HDD: What’s Best For Business?

July 30, 2013 |

The hard disk drive has ruled as the king of secondary storage since the 1960s, beating tape reels and punch cards. At the time, it was the latest and greatest storage technology out there, able to access information non-sequentially and, over time, reducing its form factor and increasing its storage density so much that it’s hard to imagine any other storage tech beating it. But that’s where solid state storage comes in. Faced with the increasing viability of solid state arrays, many businesses have to face the difficult decision of whether to ditch the hard drive in favor of solid state storage.

Hard Disks

The most obvious benefit of hard disks is their ability to store massive amounts of data. A single drive can now store up to 4 TB of information, while the largest consumer SSD is only one-quarter of that. The price of hard disk storage is incredibly low, especially when you consider … Read More

Data Storage: What Are Your Options?

July 25, 2013 |

Only 15 years ago, a good PC was lucky to provide a 3GB hard drive. Now, mobile phones have three times that amount as standard. While it may have been £25 for a 256MB flash drive in 2004, you can get 20 or 30 times the storage for the same price – and delivering higher speeds – from an even smaller piece of technology on your keyring. It’s not just because of advances in technology, either – it’s simple demand.

Over the last couple of decades, we’ve experienced a huge demand for more space. The explosion in popularity of the MP3 format in the late 90s led to huge music collections going digital, while the AVI and MPEG formats created a boom in video content. As technology gets greater – most recently, with the advent of HD – so does the need for storage. Now that most of us are “always on” – the internet, that … Read More

In the Age of Information, being able to properly protect that information goes hand in hand with its increasing value. As a result, it’s a smart idea to use the most secure and simplest means for protecting that data as you possibly can. Fortunately, there are a few such means now currently available.

Secure Password Software

It’s an unfortunate truth that the best passwords are often the hardest ones to remember. Fortunately, there are a number of tools you can use available online that will help you with this particular problem. Generally, password managers are the way to go for secure data. It’s not like you’ll always be able to remember the string of numbers and letters that is long enough for you to forget, but also long enough to be truly secure. But a password manager will allow you to only need to remember one password, the one that unlocks your password on your … Read More

What Is Hard Disk Defragmentation?

May 18, 2013 |

The word “defragmentation” is typically used to refer to a Microsoft Windows utility called Disk Defragmenter. It is designed to solve a problem that occurs because of the way hard disks store data.

 

An introduction to how hard drives work

If you want to have some knowledge about hard drives you should start by knowing these three things:

 

  • Hard disks store data in chunks called sectors. If you imagine the surface of the disk divided into rings (like the rings of a tree) and then imagine dividing each ring into slices, with a slice being a sector of a ring. Each sector contains a fixed amount of data, such as 512 bytes.
  • Hard disks have a small arm that can move from one ring to another on their surface. To get to a particular sector, the hard drive then moves the arm to the appropriate ring.
  • Hard disks are slow in computer … Read More
