Q. Why should you make use of a VPN?
A. In short a VPN (Virtual Private Network) secures your Servers / Computer’s internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you’re sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes. Not having a VPN allows your servers to be vulnerable to the public and intruders are able to access using hacking tools. We have various VPN options to choose from so that you can focus on your core business knowing that you servers are safe guarded from these intruders whether your servers are Cloud based or Locally based on your premises.
Q. Why should you archive your email? Are there benefits of archiving email?
A. There are 2 main reasons why we motivate users to archive email;
1. Storage Management – With data growth constantly increasing, and the majority of stored data never being accessed again, a lot of data builds up in primary storage. Moving this data to secondary storage reduces the overall storage cost, reduces Backup time and cost, reduces Restore/Recovery time and cost, and provides sufficient capacity in the event of unexpected data blooms.
2. Application Performance – Removing redundant data from the primary application makes both the application faster and the application user more efficient, as there is less ‘application clutter’ to deal with. Archived data can still be accessed or restored if required, and without IT intervention
At Blue Web Technologies we assist our client in properly archiving mail – We have several archiving solutions keeping our clients budgets and performance in mind.
Q. Are you able to move away from Microsoft? What are the Pro’s and Con’s?
A. Moving away from Microsoft is achievable. We specialise in making it possible to migrate completely onto a Linux distribution. The advantage of moving away from Microsoft is that that are no hefty license fees for every user in your organisation, the disadvantage is learning something new as well as the challenges that lay ahead of you. It would be exactly the same as a user being used to the Windows operating system and then purchasing an Apple Mac for productivity.
We also specialise in Linux based servers which can do the same and much more than a Windows Server. To find out more and how to convert to Linux please contact us for more information.

3. WEB – Your client will receive their invoice / statement as an SMS Link on their mobile device. Clicking the Link will open up the Invoice / Statement on their mobile device browser.
Q. Why virtualise?
A. In the physical world, data centers typically moved to a “one app/one server” model in order to isolate applications. But this caused physical server sprawl, increased costs, and underutilized servers. Server virtualization provides application isolation and removes application compatibility issues by consolidating many of these virtual machines across far fewer physical servers. This also cuts down on server waste by more fully utilizing the physical server resources and by provisioning virtual machines with the exact amount of CPU, memory, and storage resources that it needs and in turn allows for the saving of power consumption and footprint size. Using virtualisation technology can also extend the life of old legacy applications.
