Tech Library

Where can you find it:

During our website re-vamp, we decided to include a Technology Library on our website. Our technology library is a compilation of technology topics meant to educate folks about technology without any pushy sales talk. Our primary goal is to provide the necessary base knowledge for our innately curious customers, so that they know that they have options depending on their environment and requirements. Our secondary goal is to create a space that allows individuals to understand technology in a tangible way, and to be able to understand the advantages and limitations of different technologies.

What you’ll find:

Networking This section discusses what a network is, the different types of networks, and the components that make up a network, such as routers, switches, security devices, and wireless access points.

Virtualization Ever wanted to know more about virtualization? This section discusses what virtualization is, the benefits of virtualization, and the different types of virtualization, such as server, storage, and network virtualization, and VDI.

Storage From disaster recovery to tips on how to chooses a storage solution, this section informs readers on the different types of storage solutions out there.

Data Center Besides describing what makes up a Data Center, this section discusses Cloud, co-location, and on-premise solutions.

Unified Communications This section provides an overview of Unified Communications (UC), discusses the benefits of a UC solution, and weighs the pros and cons of both an on-premise and hosted solution.

Now, these sections are not only meant to explain basic concepts, but also to explain the benefits of different technologies and how they can affect business processes. The learn section of our website is meant for individuals that are curious about technology and need a jumping off point to understand what it is all about.
