Cloud Computing Gains Critical Mass Despite Uncertainty About Its Definition

Cloud Computing

F5 Networks recently surveyed 250 companies’ senior IT Personnel about Cloud Computing, and one thing remains consistent – IT managers cannot come together regarding the consensual definition of the term.

What is Alfresco?


You may have heard some talk around the office cooler about Alfresco. What is it? What does it do? Most importantly, how will it benefit your business?

Simply put, Alfresco is an open source alternative for enterprise content management(ECM.) ECM, then, is everything and nothing at once. It’s the pretty much an all-purpose term referring to how an organization delivers content and information.

Do you Need a Virtual Private Server?

Virtual Private Servers

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a simulation of hardware by a host operating system that allows another operating system to run on it.  Simply put, this allows web developers to host multiple “virtual” servers on just one physical server. To a developer, the benefits seem readily apparent:

Each virtual server, or “private” server, are separated from one another  and only accessible via the host server. This means only the host server can access the RAM, CPU, Disk Space, Network throughput etc. For instance, a server may have 2GB RAM, 100GB of disk space, and 2 x 2GHz processors, with 10 VPSes on it.  Now depending on what VPS software you go with on the host, each virtual setup either share hardware resources, or have guaranteed access to 200MB RAM, a disk space limit of 10GB, and an effective CPU of 400Mhz. This, of course, is oversimplified a bit in order to help you get the idea.

Thankfully WordPress has great plugin expandability.
