How to decide to go to the "Cloud"

The most important question to ask yourselves is: Do I have a compelling business case?

.Whenever I meet with potential clients and the subject of disaster recovery solutions comes up, I hear the immediate comments of: “Oh, I have that. We back up every day.”  It is fascinating how many small business owners are under the impression that backing up their data equates to disaster recovery. I wholeheartedly agree that backing up is absolutely essential as you need to be able to recover your data should anything happen, however, the difference between having a disaster recovery solution in place and having a back-up solution only can mean the survival or failure of a small business after a disaster has struck.

Type-C the future of USB

When the rumors of USB Type-C began to circle around tech conventions last year, they seemed almost too good to be true. Finally a fully reversible USB connector with transfer speeds of up to 10GBps was going to replace the nearly two-decade-old USB connector that we have all grown accustomed to.
If yesterday’s presentation at CES 2015 was indication, it is true and it is a good thing. The new connector (Shown Below) is not only fully reversible, it also features some benefits to meet the needs of the modern device user. USB Type-C is capable of delivering power of nearly 100 Watts. This type of power delivery could mean the end of conventional chargers for laptop, as we know them.
While there is a lot of promise behind a new USB form factor, implementing it and phasing out the old USB standard may take several years, and could possibly prove too difficult of a task to overcome, as nearly 90% of all peripherals on the market today feature the current USB connector. There are other competitors in the peripheral market now, such as Apple and Intel’s Thunderbolt connectors which also present a competition in this space that wasn’t there when the first USB devices came out. Thunderbolt 2 devices reach speeds up to 20GBps bi-directional, and the connectors have begun to steadily make their way into the PC market over the past few years.
The first Type-C devices are expected to hit the market next month, the Nokia N1 tablet. MSI will follow suit in March with a gaming notebook and motherboard featuring the new connection.
