Data centres and the importance of air conditioning

Data centres and the importance of air conditioning

Where waste heat is produced, cooling is necessary. Data centres are particularly genned up on this: in a data centre, hundreds of switches, CPUs, RAM modules in the terabyte range and power-hungry GPUs perform their duties. Without the appropriate expertise, a correspondingly poor air cooling of server racks & co. threatens - and that can become expensive very quickly. The importance of air conditioning in data...

Clouds are made of steel

Clouds are made of steel

Cloud Computing - today, in part two of our series, I would like to look at the three service models and the deployment models used in cloud computing. The infrastructure level is the base and provides the functionality on which the other levels are built. A well-known offering in the IaaS area is, for example, the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Comparable with hardware you buy in shops, you can book a virtual machine (VM) at Amazon, which acts like a new computer: usually operated with Linux (but here as well, the user is free to decide and can also use other operating systems), you can log in to this machine and find nothing apart from a freshly installed operating system.


What are clouds?

What are clouds?

We’ll be lucky if anyone reads this sentence to the end, cloud computing is old hat after all.But that just depends! The truth is, all larger (IT) organisations have something to say about it, the young and successful in Berlin who’ve launched a startup in this sector (or work in one) - or privately, most smartphone users already take advantage of cloud services, perhaps without realising it: Sharing services (photo sharing for family members,...), backups, media data (music) as well as address books and calendars with various providers - this can certainly be seen as a cloud computing.

Overshoot Day 2017: Risks, opportunities and trends

In a nutshell, Overshoot Day serves to heighten awareness. The focus of interest is on our natural resources. You don’t have to be a scientist to know that these are dwindling rapidly. Overshoot Day clearly illustrates the severity of the problem each year anew. But how, exactly?

Off on holiday – but not without access to a secure WLAN hotspot

Off on holiday – but not without access to a secure WLAN hotspot

After a day on the beach, that small restaurant in the side street looks very inviting - the ideal place to finish off the evening? Perfect - and there’s WLAN available as well, for uploading the new photos. However, even if the dangers of an unsecured WLAN hotspot are limited, they should, at the same time, also be taken seriously. Particularly when you’re on holiday,...

Leaps in technology: Why the use of FinTech is lagging behind in rich countries

Leaps in technology: Why the use of FinTech is lagging behind in rich countries

Germany, the USA, Canada and Switzerland: all of them rich countries as well as being global leaders, financially and technologically. However, in one particular area, the world’s big players are lagging behind: FinTech services are used considerably less frequently here than in emerging countries. But why is this so - and is it a problem? What is FinTech? A short introduction for all those who...

Hardware donation to Bosnia

Hardware donation to Bosnia

What should you do with your used hardware? Give it to us, of course! Although sometimes used hardware is not just used but also, unfortunately, outdated in view of our technical requirements. But that doesn't mean this hardware can no longer be used – quite the opposite! There are still plenty of places, even in European countries, where there is no guarantee of having a well-equipped IT...

Plant trees to combat climate change!

Plant trees to combat climate change!

What do a network switch and a tree have in common? It's simple: for every switch or router we sell, we will plant a tree with Plant for the Planet – an organisation which has already planted 14 billion (yes really!) trees. The aim is to reduce the burden placed on our planet by carbon dioxide and, in this way, combat climate change. This is why...
