Many people understand, Microsoft home windows and Linux are usually two different systems. Often the vps (VPS) necessary are often different. While Microsoft home windows is frequently a really business primary system, A linux systemunix is really a free of charge and free os. This kind of primary difference in costs are duplicated in the costs around the Microsoft home windows Vps and A linux systemunix Vps. About this primary difference you'll find that possible website site visitors aimed at your website will probably be dealing with either computer.
Synology has just introduced an updated version of the high-performance 4-bay DiskStation DS412 NAS (Network Attached Storage) server, the DS412+, which adds a couple of new features to its predecessor.
In order to build the DS412+, Synology started by redesigning the case of its previous model so that it could add hot-swap support, as well as a new cooling system.
This uses a series of passive CPU heatsinks and dual exhaust fans that control their rotation speed according to the temperatures recorded inside the NAS case.
Another modification brought to the DS412+ when compared to its predecessor, is the inclusion of a front panel USB 3.0 port, which makes this Synology’s first 4-bay server to add support for this interface.
Network World - Hewlett-Packard today announced a series of open source-based cloud offerings and added network automation capabilities to its hardware products in an attempt to carve out its piece of a market currently topped by Amazon Web Services.
HP announced that its public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service offering, called HP Cloud Services, will be launched in May. It's based on open source software from OpenStack and more than 6,000 customers have already used it in beta, the company says. In addition to the public cloud offering, HP also rolled out a series of software applications that allow enterprises to manage their private or public clouds, regardless of whether they use HP hardware or not.
On the networking side, the company is making a move toward software defined networking (SDN) through a series of new network automation tools that will be added to the company's FlexNetwork product.
One of the most confusing decisions someone new to web hosting will have to make is which platform their server should be on. There are a number of different choices out there but the main two are Linux and Windows web servers. There are also a lot of sources of information about hosting, but the majority of them are tainted by the author's biased personal opinion unfortunately confusing the issue. Having just put in some solid hours researching the topic I have come to the conclusion that in general it quite probably does not matter which server you use. For the majority of people it will be far more important to choose a really good web host than to worry about the server-type that they implement.
Today I can finally speak publicly about a new cloud service that has seen the light and I had the pleasure of participating in CTP phase.
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.
