There are racks upon racks of servers in every room of the datacenter. Hundred foot Ethernet cables purchased by the 53’ truckload deliver ones and zeroes in carefully orchestrated paths. There is a purpose for every end-to-end connection proffered by these cables. Data transfer. Internet. Communication. They are the post-modern representation of human veins, sending information back and forth between a practically uncountable number of processing machines (OK the datacenter tech team probably knows, in all fairness).

Check out the latest on Drupal 8, some interesting news out of web hosting, and scalable, modular architecture for CSS. It was a good week for web development and design news!

In today’s economy, saving money has given way to saving energy and resources for many. However, it is possible to do both. Data centers around the world are responsible for a staggering amount of power usage, but new technologies and practices are reducing this consumption so that their environmental impact is reduced while performance is continually optimized and costs are still kept low. Some of the key “green” components of a modern data center include:

The benefits of cloud computing are too great to overlook. Especially when it comes to having a business with multiple sites, storing and sharing data can become a very cumbersome without the aid of cloud computing. Having data at a facility designed from the ground up for redundancy minimizes the risk of data loss, while also providing the flexibility to be available from virtually anywhere on the internet. Additionally, issues such as throughput to and from the data are gone with having hosting done at a datacenter. While any random Joe can host a server to store data at an office, a cloud solution at a datacenter could have dedicated gigabit circuits, redundant power, and state-of-the-art cooling systems so that the hardware would have no reason to falter.

Are Tablets Ready

Ever since the Motorola Xoom and subsequently Galaxy Tab 10.1 have come out (sorry, not an Apple fan. Gasp!) I have been pondering two questions. One, can I find a good deal on Ebay? Two, and more importantly, can I replace my notebook and use the tablet as my every day computing resource?

Unleashed Technologies was proud to be a co-sponsor of the recent "Lunch and Learn" event that took place yesterday at our Data Center facility in Ashburn, VA.

I've had the unfortunate happenings of helping several new clients that are coming from disaster based situations as it surrounds hosting and the availability of their applications/websites. The first major issue is truly the hosting firms themselves. Pretty much every web firm out there offers hosting of some kind. They do this in part for two main reasons;
