Why Choose Microsoft’s Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V over VMware?
Have you been considering virtualization? Virtualization can reduce your operating cost by consolidating several servers onto a single physical server. A typical small configuration consists of 2-8 physical servers connected to a SAN (storage area network) for high-availability running between 20-100 virtual servers. That’s right; you could be running 100 virtual servers on only a handful of physical servers. Virtualization would also provide you with highly-available servers and applications. If one of your physical servers were to have a hardware failure, your virtual servers would migrate to one of your other physical servers automatically. In addition, your IT staff would have the flexibility to roll out new virtual servers within minutes instead of having to order new hardware every time a department requests a new application or service. Therefore, if you haven’t already jumped on the virtualization bandwagon, now might be the perfect time. The first step is deciding which […]

What is Office 365?
Cloud-computing is without doubt one of the big buzz words of the modern world’s technology arena. While cloud-based applications and services targeted personal users and small businesses have been around for decades (e.g. Hotmail, Dropbox, Google Docs), the most recent years have seen the proliferation of more complex, enterprise level applications and management tools hosted in the cloud. With these applications available, companies now face alternatives to on-premise and, in many cases, more resource intensive solutions. ERP, accounting and CRM systems, email and storage hosting solutions, document management applications and conferencing tools are just a few examples of the business tools now available in the cloud. Microsoft’s flagship of cloud-based business applications is Office 365 – a comprehensive suite of business tools targeted at organizations of all sizes. The present blog briefly describes the applications included in Office 365: Exchange Online Lync Online Office Web Apps SharePoint Online Office Professional […]
The Journey to a Proactive IT Department
The Challenges As in most companies, IT is a cost center and as IT professionals we face certain challenges. These challenges include unpredictable/costly downtime, managing IT costs, time management, prioritization, risk and exposure as well as strategic issues. Each of these challenges revolves around time and money. Often, these challenges are aggravated by time constraints, lack of prevention, low department knowledge levels and unpredictable costs. All of these factors can lead to many IT setbacks and most of all potential data loss. According to a peer review journal from the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University, data loss is caused by the following reasons: In order to mitigate these challenges, IT management must become more proactive. We hear this term in many different contexts. We hear “work smarter not harder” or “don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today”, and in many cases IT professionals […]
