The global pandemic threw everyone for a loop and has left us all feeling uncertain about the future. How long will it last? What happens if my family or I get sick? Will I be laid off or furloughed?
Companies were similarly hit with this uncertainty as they navigated the new normal for themselves and their employees. Some managed to pivot, riding out the downturn relatively well, while others struggled.
As more organizations rely on the data collection and freedom of IoT devices, the technology entices more ransomware attacks on corporate networks.
With the variety of manufacturers and apps created for each IoT device, hackers can enter a network and wreak havoc in multiple ways. Ransomware attacks have increased 20% worldwide in the first half of the year and 105% in the U.S., according to SonicWall's latest cyberthreat report.
With all the online tools we use today at the office, it's no wonder training professionals find it a challenge to get their content out to a wider learning audience. Employees have access to so many apps and logins it's hard as training pros to squeeze your way into anyone's tool stack or busy schedules.
ANSI/TIA-942 is a popular standard for data centers to ensure uptime and standardize physical infrastructure. Two organizations are responsible for the creation, maintenance and monitoring of this standard and the guidelines that industries use worldwide: American National Standards Institute and the Telecommunications Industry Association.
Once reserved for mainframes and supercomputers, liquid cooling is now available to enterprise data centers. New demanding workloads and hardware options increase power densities and place traditional cooling systems under strain. Data center managers are starting to look at enterprise liquid cooling services and systems as alternatives to air-based cooling setups.
Managing a cutting-edge and ever-expanding network of IoT devices presents numerous challenges in provisioning, connectivity, security and power management.
As IoT devices proliferate every area of business, organizations need to ensure they're managing them and the network supporting them correctly.
Technology isn't perfect, but regular maintenance and monitoring helps it run as smoothly as possible. That's especially true for server hardware, which, according to the Uptime Institute, accounts for 80% of all the outages organizations suffer in data centers.
If you're curious about top server room problems, here's a look at five of the most common server issues and how you can prevent or address them.
As the volume of IoT devices used in organizations increases, keeping devices updated will present a challenge. Teams that develop a strategy for IoT software updates early in their deployment will find themselves in a more manageable situation than those who don't.
The difference between inadequate performers and independently productive ones is the right type and amount of practice. Practicing a skill over and over doesn't always make it perfect. It's not a matter of Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000 hours either.
Contrary to what some might think, invoice factoring and cash advances have 6 key differences. Do you need working capital sooner rather than later? Is it a one-time thing or an ongoing need? To help you choose, here are six considerations when deciding between invoice factoring and cash advances.
Sometimes a project comes your way that you don’t have time for, or maybe it’s not quite in your wheelhouse. So, you pass it along to another freelance B2B copywriter you know.
A few months later, it happens again. And again. Suddenly, you’re referring projects to other writers at least once a month. After taking a moment to enjoy the fact that your marketing is working so well that you have leads coming at you from all sides, it’s time to get real.
One of my hobbies is working as a line umpire at professional tennis tournaments in my local area. It’s an excellent way for me to stay involved in a sport I love while getting an up-close view of top players in the game.
Even though it’s more of a hobby, it was an “official” job for me, as I was paid for my time on court (for the most part). That’s why I put my time as a line umpire on my LinkedIn profile.
With all the devices organizations must juggle, IoT device management platforms provide a way to keep those devices updated and online.
There are an estimated 30 billion IoT devices installed globally right now, according to Statista's report titled "Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices installed base worldwide from 2015 to 2025." Organizations have too many devices to handle each on a manual, individual basis and must scale the way they install, update and monitor IoT devices.
Though server capacity management is an essential part of data center operations, it can be a challenge to figure out which components to monitor and what tools are available. How you address server monitoring can change depending on what type of infrastructure you run within your data center, as virtualized architecture requirements differ from on-premises processing needs.
Billions of IoT devices will be in use by 2030, and organizations will face a significant challenge in keeping them updated with the latest software and firmware. Organizations must create a plan to deploy updates to these devices sooner than later.
Updates are critical for all technology, but especially IoT devices because they're often located in the field, on the factory floor or healthcare center.
