To survive as human beings we need air, water, food and shelter. In this modern age you may certainly add electric power to that short list. Without adequate power all but the basic agrarian societies would collapse.
Have you experienced a power outage lately? If you were in South Australia recently you would have experienced a major inconvenience at the very least when everything went dark. And even when the power goes back on the dramas are not over yet for many businesses where computers did not shut down properly when the power tripped.
Enter the Domain of the Uninterruptible Power Supply. How can a UPS benefit not only businesses but also households?
We will have a look at why UPS units are lifelines for electronic equipment.
Specifically, we are looking at the 2200VA unit from CyberPower.
Earlier this week we attended Synology 2017 at Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre. At the Conference Synology announced a number of new products and services including a 24 bay SSD NAS, an Australian advanced NAS replacement program and upcoming DSM features such as an Office Suite for Synology NAS devices and Synology’s new public cloud backup solution, Cloud Squared.
Also announced at the event was Synology’s first 12bay 3RU RS3617xs+ which is rated at over 500,000 IOPS and the upcoming RT2600ac router which we are itching to get our hands on.
We reviewed many a server rack over the years, from very small ones to a Godzilla-sized one. In researching and reviewing these enclosures we’ve come to appreciate why any growing business would want to have one.
Today we will look at a medium sized server rack and explain some of the considerations that go into selecting the right one for your business.
In my college years I did a stint of janitorial duties that included quite a bit of floor mopping so the “joys” of using the mop and bucket have scarred me for life.... Many different solutions have been created over the years to get rid of dirty floors.
One specialist purveyor of floor care products, BISSELL, has just brought out the CrossWave, which probably is one of the best arguments to ditch the mop and bucket altogether. And perhaps the vacuum cleaner too!
Like a lot of people that are fairly tall I have always suffered from a bad posture. That is not helped by a mainly sedentary work environment...
Well, now there is an app for that! Coupled with a device that will attach to your lower back which you can calibrate for when you sit perfectly straight, it will signal when you revert back to slouching. It is a training device which you can wear for up to 45 minutes a day to remind your back how great it is to feel straight again!
That’s the theory, but how does it work in practice?
A Network Attached Storage system is a jack of all trades, a Swiss Army knife of interconnected computing, based on a bunch of drives that play nice with just about any computing platform. That is my definition anyways...
But a NAS as a karaoke machine is a bit different. Mind you, it is just another app that will run nicely on this particular QNAP model in addition to the host of other standard NAS applications. So QNAP has done something different to make this machine really sing and dance.
Let There Be Light! From the beginning of creation light was essential for our existence and survival. The trouble is that in our electrical age we don’t give it a second thought: just flip a switch. But what if you’re in the great outdoors, at night in a power outage or in a survival situation?
You want a reliable, rechargeable light that will last a long time and will illuminate a vast distance. It would help if you can vary the output and if, for life-threatening situations, you can blind an opponent with a dazzling strobe light. So essentially, you are looking at a flashlight like the Intimidator from Olight.
