Finding A Top Solution

Globalize businessTo find a top solution, then checking out other peoples thought is the best thing to do. No matter what company you’re intending to go with. It’s always worth listening to see what other third party, unbiased users think of the service you’re intending to sign up to. Like with most things, what the storage solution provider advertises can often be massively different to what you’re really getting. This is fine some of the time but in reality if you’re parting with money for a product or service then you want to get what you’re paying for at least. Cloud storage as a market is full of providers. There are lots of providers like Crashplan, JustCloud and Carbonite to name a few. All appear to offer great solutions and well priced packages but without knowing who people like then you really don’t know who to sign up with.s

how does this whole online storage thing actually work? What exactly is cloud computing and why should you be using it to take a backup. Well, the cloud is just a collection of computers or servers that are interconnected and able to shara resources. In the simplest form, imagine connecting your system to someone else’s. If the other person wasn’t using resources such as processing power or disk space then you could use it. So you’d effectively double your processing and storage space. This in a nutshell is all online data storage is. The cloud is a fancy name, it’s nothing to do with the sky. Think of it as nothing more than an array of servers sharing resources and you’ll be some way to understanding what it is and how you can ultimately make use of it for your own online storage and backup requirements.

Web Hosting technology

D-Link xStack SeriesIn many peoples minds it may not matter where their site is hosted, as they have no real preference as to the exact location of their host server.

One way that this can have such an impact, is in the area of price that you will pay for your hosting. This often is able to be seen with the fact that overseas hosting especially in India and Turkey are a lot less as the price for land is a lot less meaning that the money saved on the land to host the building for your servers, can often be passed along to you for the savings that your site will need to spend on a regular occurrence.
Another issue that might need to be looked at, is that of the customer support. There are a number of points that this can bring forth when looking to make an impact in your hosting needs. The most common of these is that of the area of having a person that knows what you are talking about and can resolve any issues that you might have. This is one advantage of the web hosting company being overseas as these countries are always top in the way of customer service and knowledge.
It is on the other hand a little better for a person to use a domestic server in the fact that they have a little more in the way of reliable uptimes, as there are not as many issues that affect a server as when they are overseas. This can be helpful in the fact that you need your site to be up and running on a regular basis.
Taking even just a portion of this information into consideration will be an important part of the decision making process of getting the best outcome from the efforts that are placed into the site on a regular basis. Knowing what to look for and how to go about getting this information, you will see for yourself a number of the advantages that can come from the use of either a domestic server or one that is based locally. This can be just the comparison that you need to make sure that you are getting the needed information to make a wise decision for the host of your site.

A Quick Look at the Asus RT-N56U

AsusA router isn’t something that you upgrade every year especially if you’re just after its very basic function, that is, enable you to connect wirelessly to the internet. However, I decided to upgrade my four-year-old Netgear when I upgraded my connection speed. I reckoned that I would be able to maximize the new speed further if I used a more modern router.
So I shopped around online for a while until I saw one from Asus, called the RT-N56U. At first I thought, what is that thing? No, the router wasn’t ugly. In fact, it was sleek, slim and shiny—everything I never thought a router should or would be. The price tag (about $129.99) was more than I paid for my old router, but I was sold by the looks alone. I clicked the check out button and ordered the beauty.
After the Anticipation, Reality
The router finally arrived several days of giddy anticipation later. But as soon as I took it out of the box, I started to ask myself, did I just buy something based on its looks? You see, I often read extensive reviews of gadgets before buying them, and I’m sure the Asus have tons already since it’s over a year old, but I didn’t.
But there it was, that black, shiny, pretty little thing. A router that didn’t look quite like a router. I connected it to the WAN port, beside which are four LAN ports and two USB ports. Then I turned it on, after which I set up the connection through my browser. The basic set up was quick enough—probably less than five minutes. And just like that, I was up and running and connected.
More Than Just a Beauty
While I didn’t perform lab tests on it, the speed at which I was able to download files and stream videos were definitely faster than my router at the same upgraded connection speed I have. What’s more is that after reading through the manual (I know I should have read it first, but the set up was easy, so…), I discovered that I could also connect my colour laser printer and an external drive to the USB ports, so I could share both wirelessly. I no longer have to walk to my housemate’s room just to share files with him, or worse e-mail it to him as if I lived several blocks away.
It’s embarrassing to admit, but I was a little stumped to discover this feature, as this felt like a massive upgrade from my old router. Not only is the Asus RT-N56U a beautiful router, but it is a speed freak and multi-talented too.
The Verdict on the Asus RT-N56U
So goes my budding love affair with my new router—at least for now. I’m sure that there will still be more surprises for me (good ones I’m sure) the more time I spend using this. But right now, I’m just happy to be surfing faster and have the ability to share my files and my printer to everyone in the house.
