    Should Windows Server 2008 Users Migrate to Azure Cloud or Upgrade to Windows Server 2019?

    20,000,000 Servers worldwide are still running Windows Server 2008, and there’s a deadline that’s getting dangerously close. Support ends for Windows Server 2008 on January 14th 2020. So customers are facing some big decisions and weighing the various options. Option #1: Do nothing. Delete every email from Microsoft. That’s tempting, but not wise. 3rd Party app vendors can’t fix bugs if the underlying operating system is no longer supported. So most ISV’s will drop support for 2008 once Microsoft drops support in January. If your applications stop working, and you can’t get support, that’s a big problem. But there’s another problem that could actually cripple your organization… These old systems…

    Introduction to the HP Embedded Web Server | HP Web Server | HP

    The HP Embedded Web Server, or EWS, is an application that runs on HP printers that allows you to configure your device from your computer using a standard web browser. For this video, we are focusing on the EWS that comes with HP Enterprise and Managed category printers, MFPs, and scanners running HP FutureSmart 4 Firmware. To access the HP EWS, type the printer’s IP address into your preferred web browser. The printer automatically redirects to an HTTPS secure connection to encrypt the communication between your computer and printer. The SSL certificate included with your printer is a self-signed certificate which are not trusted by most web browsers but does…

    Adding Third-Party Domains Step-by-Step || Shopify Help Center 2017

    [Music] Why is it important to register a custom domain name? Think of it as your identity on the Internet. This is how people are going to know you and refer to you when they talk to their friends about your store. You want it to be related to your brand and easy to remember. A good custom domain will make your store more visible in search results. Typing your company’s name into a search engine like Google or Yahoo it’s far easier than having to remember a specific URL and having a name that matches your brand syncs up those results. It also unifies your brand having a similar…

    Curtin | Behind-the-scenes | Virtual Computing Lab Team

    The team that we’re nominating for the VC Award is the Virtual Computing Lab team. The team itself was made up from members from different parts of CITS. We were finding that online and Open University Australia uses weren’t able to access the same software that users on campus could access. What was prohibiting us really was some of the constraints around software licensing and the cost of some of those licenses if we were to get global licenses. So the team looked at a number of different solutions and came up with the idea of virtual computing lab. What the virtual computing lab allows for is the user anywhere…

    Safestore Testimonial – Hyve Managed Hosting

    I’m Phil Fryer head of IT at Safestore. Safestore offers self-storage to our personal and business customers from 120 stores throughout the UK. When I joined Safestore over 12 years ago, the internet was quite a small part of our business, we had only maybe 25% of our inquiries came via the web, but nowadays that’s in excess of 80%, so our website is exceedingly important to Safestore. Finding a good quality hosting supplier is exceedingly difficult. To find one that you can get a hold of when you’ve got problems, and to be able to troubleshoot when there are issues. Historically, we had a very small boutique supplier, which…

    Testimonial Medichecks – Hyve Managed Hosting

    Hi, my name’s Alistair Hall, I’m the Chief Operating Officer and founder here at Medichecks. Medichecks provide health screening and blood testing to individuals and corporate clients. Medichecks started approximately about 17 years ago. Back in the day, the business was nowhere near as big as what it is today, so the cost of the business, of having the website down for half a day or whatever, it was probably neither here nor there. But if the same situation was to occur now, it would cost us an awful lot of money. It took me a while to get onto a cloud because I was a bit unsure, could you…

    Dedicated Servers – Interview with Graham Marcroft from Hyve Managed Hosting

    What is a dedicated cloud server? So what’s a dedicated server? This is infrastructure that is specifically for one tenant. That hardware is dedicated to that specific customer. I think the benefits of a dedicated server really boil down to resources. The single tenant will have 100% use of all of the resources 24/7. Along with dedicated resources, as long as it’s been configured as a high availability downtown will be kept to an absolute minimum. The difference between dedicated and colocation is actually quite vast. Colocation means that you’ll be getting a rack, you’ll be getting power, cooling, ISPs, within a data center but you’ll use your equipment. Dedicated…
