Tic toc, tic toc, tic toc… That’s the sound of your watch, reminding you how little time you have to do everything that needs to be done today or any day for that matter. From managing schedules and employees to financing and billing, supporting clients to meeting clients, pitching contracts, and closing more deals, a small […]
That piqued your interest, right? I’m not just saying that as a way to get you to click, and I’m most certainly not trying to offend you. I’m saying this because I’ve seen it time and time again. But mostly, I’m saying this because it happens for the wrong reasons. I’ve talked with partners who […]
What does the word “server” mean to you? Depending on your own background, your business interests and your daily experience, your response will be different. “Have you uploaded the document to the server yet?” might be a question you’ve heard, asked or had to respond to at work. If that’s the case, it’s normal that you’d think a server is used to stock files in a central point for sharing or backup. Well, there’s more to a server than just online storage! Here’s one way to explain it...
How much is a cloud server really worth? And what do cloud server providers base their prices on, anyway? These are reasonable questions and we felt it was necessary to talk to you about the right answers. In the following paragraphs, we’ll take a closer look at the nuts and bolts that define cloud server pricing. After you read this, you should have a better understanding of what you’re actually paying for. And you’ll be better prepared to answer the following question: Why choose a cloud server?
In an era where everybody speaks IT, you may already know enough about clouds! But let me tell you, there is always room to learn more. Cloud service providers offer three different types of cloud service: public cloud, hybrid cloud or private cloud. This article will focus on the Private Cloud.
If someone mentions the words cloud computing, what is your immediate reaction? Are you curious to know more about it and how it can help your business, or do you simply shrug and look the other way? There are two kinds of business owners who resist the pull of cloud computing: Those who don’t know enough about it and those who just don’t care enough to take a better look. It’s time for small businesses to get serious about the cloud!
IT trends have been reshaping organizations and business models over the last two decades. Steve Ballmer, former Microsoft CEO, announced at the Worldwide Partner Conference in 2012 that “the future is in the Cloud.” Actually, that future is now. It’s great if you’ve been offering cloud services like virtual servers for a while. But with so many cloud server resellers on the market, how are you positioning yourself? Here’s the recipe to make yourself a great reseller.
You’ve worked hard to build your business. You’ve put your personal stamp on every operational detail, from the building location right down to the brand of coffee served in your lunchroom. It’s only natural that you’d want to keep a close eye on the information stored in your databases and servers. Have you ever thought about moving to the cloud?
Marketing is a key component of success. Most MSPs and VARs I know tell me they’re getting new clients through word of mouth. While this is most likely true, SMBs entrepreneurs need to understand that more and more consumers are moving toward internet searches. Did you know that 89% of B2B buyers use the internet during the B2B research process and 60% of buying decisions are made by consumers before they start talking to a sales rep?
You’ve heard the buzz about the cloud. You know it’s an option to consider for replacing your on-premises servers, running your applications with better performance, storing data offsite, and that it is more efficient for your business. Have you started looking for a provider yet? Deciding to purchase your current hardware took you a lot of thought and effort. You worked hard trying to figure out your business needs and how they will evolve over time, in order to buy the adequate hardware for storing and processing your data. The choices you made in the past have had a direct impact on your budget and time. You’ve had to spend hours in datacenters doing setups and maintenance.
As a marketing agency, you're used to dealing with clients and everything they need for their website, graphic design and advertising. That’s your thing! A lot of times, clients can be confused about who does what. I’m sure clients have called you because their internet was down or their cellphone’s inbox didn’t work properly. I know they did, because it used happened to me all the time when I was working in an agency.
Some years ago, I was working as the Communications Manager for a website editor. Our product helped people who had little to no understanding of programming, HTML or even computers, to build their websites. It wasn’t revolutionary, but it was close. We gained leads and clients very quickly. The product launched in 2009, and by 2011, we had yearly growth of 200% for 2 years in a row.
You’re always trying to make the best decisions for your business, and purchasing new hardware is no exception. You bought servers because your business needed them and we’re sure you took the time to understand what you were getting yourself into before you made the purchase. That was probably some time ago now, and you might need to make a change.
You need new servers! So you’ve started shopping around, looking for the best deals to stay on budget. “Easy,” you might think, “I’ve been doing this for years.” You know most hardware suppliers for your region, you’ve looked at the manufacturers’ website to check their last equipment release, and you’ve checked the requirements for the application that will run on the servers. You know what you want. You just need to negotiate that perfect offer to proceed. Wait! Easy, you say? Not so sure!
