4 Business Problems That You Can Solve with Virtual Hardware and Servers

Physical copies of anything are risky. Older business documents that have been folded away in file folders for years are at risk of everything from a fire to just getting lost. Locally saved filed on a single computer will disappear if the computer gets damaged, corrupted, or stolen. As the business value of a physical asset increases, so do the risks your company faces. Even during daily operations, physical hardware and tools are slowing your business down.

3 Reasons Besides Ergonomics Why You Need a New Keyboard at Work

Every computer activity needs a different style of keyboard. Small laptops generally have a minimal setup with the basic QWERTY arrangement and very few command keys. That’s because the keys each need to have a certain size to be easy to hit, but the keyboard itself is constricted by the size of the device. While this is great for general use and online browsing, it’s no good for accounting work. It doesn’t have a ten-key number pad or a multiple of command keys that make shortcuts and formulas easier to input. Those same kinds of constraints can make a keyboard a bad fit for the office. Almost everyone needs to… Read More

Three IT Tickets That Mean You Need New CPU Fans

Whenever your air conditioner starts to malfunction, chances are the problem started with bad ventilation. Clogged vents mean that air doesn’t reach every corner of your house or the office. An unchanged HVAC filter makes the whole unit work harder. That can lead to overheating, faster wear and tear, and lower air quality. That’s why preventative maintenance is one of the most essential parts of having a well-running air conditioner. Your computer’s fan is exactly the same way. Your CPU generates a lot of heat, and the fan is designed to pull all of that hot air away from the internal parts. The more powerful your computer is, the more… Read More

Increase Your Company’s Telecommuting Success with More Powerful Technology

  Not all computer improvements are about optimizing the internal speed and performance of your hardware. While most companies direct the hardware portion of the IT budget to new RAM, bigger screens, and growing integration of virtual machines instead of strictly physical hardware, it’s important to optimize the hardware for your coworkers, too.

Multinational technology conglomerates face this risk in highly competitive metroplexes: employees with in-demand specialties don’t have to accept the… Read More
