Jack was befuddled. He had wanted to learn the Art of IT Support under the Master, but just didn’t understand.
Jack was summoned to the Master’s lair the next day. “Jack, please show me the blacksmith’s checklist.”
The other day a friend invited me to go fishing. And while sitting around for hours baking in the sun, waiting for what seems like forever for a “bobber to bob” – may be fun for some, to me it’s just not top of the list for activities I’d do on a Saturday afternoon. (No offense to the fishing aficionados!)
The Master sent Jack to a friend of his at a neighboring blacksmith’s shop, who was having trouble with his network. The Master said, “Jack, go to my friend’s shop and use this checklist to analyze his network. Then, report back to me.”
Driving into work today, I heard an old classic, "Virtual Insanity" by Jamiroquai. As I was belting out the lyrics (of course I was alone in the car), the repeated use of the word 'virtual' got me thinking about our own virtualization services. In truth, without proper virtualization in a network, it can lead to insanity.
The weather report is in, and it's "cloudy with a chance of productivity!" With all the talk about cloud computing these days, you might be wondering how it could impact your company.
Cloud based managed services are a safe alternative to storing business data and information on your servers. Also it represents a cost-effective way to run your company and its computer system. Why? Because you don’t have to go and buy all kinds of expensive equipment for your infrastructure. By letting us store your information and manage your services on our servers, you are saving lots of money you can use for other things.
The old saying that "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is..." is a perfect motto for IT safety this holiday season. For example, you receive a message that says you won $1 million from an online lottery you've never heard of. No matter how tempting it seems, never respond to a message that asks you to send money or personal information.
