What is the difference between a computer Virus, Spyware and Malware?

Malware is all encompassing and is considered any type of computer programming or software that is classified as hostile, intrusive, or annoying.

Some examples of malware are as follows:

  • Computer viruses that attack programming code
  • Spyware that collects and distributes sensitive archived information and adware
  • Annoying pop-up ads that frequently try to blackmail you into paying them just to remove their "ad"

What is the difference between a custom built PC and a major manufacturer PC?

Custom built PC:

  • Top quality components
  • Customizable case
  • System lifetime longevity
  • Job specific construction (gaming computer, office computer, CAD/3D design, etc)

Major Manufacturer PC:

  • Cheap components
  • Poor customer service
  • Short life span
  • Lack of ability to upgrade internal components
  • Little "say so" in build customization

Major brand PC's are built to make a certain margin of profit for the corporation.   The parts in these machines are typically the lowest quality needed to last through the warranty period, turning these machines into disposable appliances.  Why buy a computer that will last a year when you can have one that will last years?

We have custom built PC's in the field that are over 10 years old and still running on all the original hardware without failure.

What is the best way to backup my data?

  • Combining on site and off site backups is best

External Hard Drives and USB Flash disks are great but they are NOT the best way to truly safeguard your information from being lost forever: Pictures, files, music, and expensive or irreplacable digital files.

Did you know data recovery from an average hard drive can start at almost $1,000?  And the price can only go up from there depending on how much data you want to try to recover.  Remember, there are no guarantees that any data will be recovered.  Most companies require pre-payment just to attempt recovery.  If for any reason the data is corrupt, you could end up spending all that money for nothing.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing comes into focus only when you think about what IT always needs: a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT's existing capabilities.

Cloud computing is great for any business that wants to upgrade or setup new services. 

It protects you from physical damages.  A natural disaster cannot be predicted.  By hosting your data and services externally even if your entire office was lost, there would never be any downtime in your IT services when they are in the cloud.  You can immediately access your data via any web connecting anywhere in the world.

Theres little worry about physical or electronic theft of information. No servers in house means there nothing to steal! All usage is logged and your connection to your data is made via a secure, encrypted connection to the virtual servers.

Lower your overhead Shutting down servers has saved our clients enough in electricity alone to pay for their cloud services making the switch an easy decision.

Flexability & Future proof. If you ever want to discontinue your cloud subscriptions and move data in house you can migrate that data without fear of losing it or move it to a new cloud provider easily.
