Incubator programs are great for getting startups on the right track. 500 Startups, one of the up and coming incubators, has just landed a $50 million funding round to aid its bevy of entrepreneurs, proving that despite economic dismay there’s still hope in the future.
The hunger for progress coupled with man’s limitless imagination has fueled a boom for IT startups. They have a strong desire to present innovative tools, products and services to address the various demands of today’s technologically advanced world. But not all startups have the funds to support their operations as they compete in the mainstream market. Many of them in fact scout for investors and capitalists to aid them financially, with larger companies like Etsy anxious to uncover hidden talent through specialized funding programs. SiliconANGLE has reported countless funding rounds for startups over the last years. Multi-million grants have become the norm in the technology community. However in many instances, money is just a portion of what a startup really needs–training, mentorship and partnerships can also bring value. This is where business incubator programs enter the picture.

Since SQL Azure is available on the market, one of the main workhorses has been how to implement backups of our databases. Initially the only way I had was to make a copy of the database in another SQL Azure, which meant the cost of having to pay for the additional database. Later began to appear new tools that allowed the export/import the data and schemas through SQL scripts or through the new “bacpac” format. A good summary of them was made on this Luis Panzano’s blog entry, showing the advantages and disadvantages of each of them.

Takeaway: When planning a client server, this guide will help ensure the RAID version selected best fits the requirements.
Many IT consultants build and deploy new servers for clients on a very regular (sometimes weekly) basis. This requires you to make numerous decisions about chassis design, processor count and speed, disk capacity, redundant power supplies, disk speeds, memory, operating systems, and warranty replacement windows. It can be easy to overlook the specified RAID version, even though this detail constitutes a critical component of server architecture.
