The #WuTangClan taught us to "protect ya neck". That's why we use #SSL's to protect our #data through #encryption and out of the hands of hackers.

Method Man would be proud.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) has been in the news recently and should make you consider getting it for your website. Here are some reasons why...

Too #hot to handle, too #cold to hold. Should you use hot or cold aisle containment in your #datacenter?
Data centers are always looking for the best way to operate their building as well as the best way to cut costs. When it comes to cooling, what's best?

Backing up and protecting data should be a priority of all businesses. But when's the last time a business revisited how to do it best?

+HP might hold the key to the future of modular #datacenters  with their new "Facility-as-a-service" offerings.

By renting out the mobile facilities, it will allow operators to move data center costs from capital to operational.  These modular data centers allow for customers to customize based on their needs, while giving them quick deployment and scalability.

Is renting modular data centers the future of the industry?
HP offers modular data centers as Facility-as-a-service. Is this the future of modular data centers?

I had the opportunity to check one of these out here in Virginia. There is an HP event next week that I am attending and I suspect they will have one of these outside. #Fingerscrossed

Data centers traditionally serve as the backbone for IT infrastructures for companies, data backups, and the backbone for the Internet itself.  The demand for facilities has been on the rise for a few years and market research shows that it will continue to grow at 22% a year.  

But with the Internet of Things on the rise, and the amount of connected devices we will see, the role of data centers might evolve into becoming more of an "operator" for the network and these connected devices.  Data centers will be places for collecting, analyzing, processing and rerouting data in real-time, with demands for efficiency, max capacity and security being the main issues that operators will have to deal with.

How do you see #datacenters  and their role in the future of the Internet of Things?
Data center demand is projected to grow, but their roles will be changed with the Internet of Things.

You know what they say: there's no business like #node  business. And node business is storing your secure #data  in one location instead of around the world.

As data grows, governments have to intervene. This can cause some regulatory headaches. But there is some light at the end of the data tunnel...

#Comcast  has developed an initiative to turn your home router into a public #wifihotspot .

Is it safe? Well, it seems Comcast took their security protocols seriously when coming up with this system; two antennae per router--one for public, one for private--and by requiring Comcast customers to register devices and use their logins for the #network .

They essentially took away the need to ask, "What's your WiFi password?"
Comcast is taking your home router and turning it into a hotspot for the public.

With Horizon no. It brilliant you set it up once and you can be in someone's house, a restaurant even driving through a house estate and it will connect. It's not the normal wifi connection that is owned by the home owner bit a separate coming from the router itself

A new survey by the NSBA shows that 40% of small business owners handle their own IT and are incredibly concerned about technology, its cost and maintenance.  

Colocation can be a great cost effective, secure and reliable alternative to handling your own IT.  Small businesses benefit from the security, connectivity and reliability while still saving money and time.

Has anybody colocated their IT infrastructure and how did it work out for you?
