If there’s any lesson to be learned from two recent Canadian data breaches it’s that IT security depends on a lot more than just deploying the right technology. It’s long been known that people are one of the weakest links in IT security. And yet I find it shocking how many businesses still learn this […]

Looking to make more money in the cloud? Reaching this goal doesn’t always mean adding new services to your portfolio. By repackaging your existing products and services you can increase your revenue. There are many ways to do this.
As of April 12, 2016 Microsoft has put an end to the MSSQL Server 2005 lifecycle. This ‘End-of-Support’ designation means no more security updates or hotfixes. If you’re still using SQL2005, migrating to a newer version of SQL should be at the top of your agenda.
Organizations planning to move their infrastructure to the cloud have to carefully consider how to manage the access to their services. Network IP addressing and domain naming are at the center of any migration strategy, or simply any IT services management.
Are you looking for an easy-to-use server solution for your small business? Does your organization have less than 25 users and manage less than 50 end-user devices? Then we’ve got the perfect match for you! Because most small organizations are typically run with little or no in-house IT staff, we know how important it is to provide solutions that are simple and easy to use. Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials is the best choice for making your first steps into the server world.
In-house applications are difficult for small businesses to maintain. Not only are they costly to set up, but they don’t offer the same security, performance or reliability that you can expect from the cloud. A hosted application offers your customers a pay-as-you-go alternative to the thousands of dollars they would normally spend to set up their own IT services.
Deploying Remote Desktop Services (RDS) is a lot easier than you think. Compared to other desktop and application virtualization solutions, like VMware Horizon or Citrix XenDesktop, configuring Windows Server 2012 R2 for RDS is a breeze. What takes more time is evaluating your needs and capacity. These steps are critical for the success of your implementation. Fortunately, we’ve gone through that in our deployment guide, so you can rely on our recommendations.
Hardware virtualization has been an alternative to costly IT infrastructure, allowing the use of one server to provide multiple virtual machines. Application virtualization removes the dependency between an application and the end-user device. It allows a program to be executed directly from a server with only input/output interactions processed on the workstation. These virtualization technologies are at the center of the Windows-based Remote Desktop and RemoteApps scenarios. You can leverage them to offer tailored services for SMBs who want to reduce expenditures on end-user devices.
Many SMBs have been turning to Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) to solve a wide range of problems. But, what exactly is DBaaS? In simple terms, it’s a method of storing and managing your data in the cloud that is simple to use and easy to update. Do you know how you can benefit from it?
Of course, you might tell me, your business already has a server. And you might be referring to that old PC in the corner of your office. It’s too old to run your business day-to-day, but you figure it’s good enough to share your files and backups. Maybe you even have a nickname for it. In most cases, that old beige PC runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I’ve got news for you. That’s not a server!
GC Brieau, a reseller with SherWeb’s Partner Network, recently learned that a little determination goes a long way as it helped one of its clients migrate to SherWeb Performance Cloud. Firm President Marc-Antoine Brillant had been talking to this client for several weeks about making the move to the cloud, as its Windows Small Business Server 2003 (SBS) was getting older by the minute. It was just a matter of time before it crashed.
As Thousands Are Expected at AWS re:Invent 2014, the Current Frenzy Around Public Cloud is Reconfirmed
Cloud enthusiasts. Amazon partners. Technology vendors. Exhibitors. IT pros. It’s up to over ten thousand individuals who will flock to Las Vegas this week for Amazon’s AWS re:Invent 2014, making it one of the biggest events in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) industry. The popularity of this conference confirms the importance of IaaS on the overall IT market.
Yesterday, Microsoft announced the latest batch of providers to be accepted into its Cloud OS network. Thanks to our Performance Cloud, SherWeb now ranks among this elite group of providers that have been recognized for their leadership and competencies in using Microsoft’s cloud platform.
Cloud computing is being hailed by KMPG as the top technology most likely to drive business transformation in the next three years. And one-quarter of global tech business leaders claim the key benefit of cloud technology is increased efficiency.
Unlike our earlier benchmarks which focused on specific s server features such as CPU and storage, the Apache Compilation and FFMPEG benchmarks provide more of an overall view of how efficiently the components of the different systems work together on real-life tasks, offering greater insight on the server’s practical performance.
What defines a good processor? GHz and core numbers, obviously. But it’s also defined by the amount of different cache levels and underlying infrastructure. A well-rounded CPU will perform best, even when certain specific tasks are more heavily impacted by other components of the server such as RAM.
When we officially launched our new Performance Cloud Servers last week, we promised to provide a full week of benchmarking results comparing our performance against big-name providers. Here is our first benchmark relating to RAM performance.
It’s one thing to claim our cloud servers’ performance can’t be matched by the big guys’ offer, but words alone can’t support such a bold statement. And we know you aren’t gullible enough to fall for a few well-written claims. So let me ask you this, how can we prove it? With benchmarks.
Cloud servers, hybrid cloud, public cloud, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)… you’ve heard these words more than enough in recent months. It’s no wonder, since we’ve entered a new IT era: out goes the “traditional IT”, and in is the cloud.
