Growing sums of data require cost-effective, high-performance storage solutions. One option for fulfilling this requirement is a network attached storage. In business contexts, this model has already established itself as a viable alternative to file servers, hard drives, and the cloud. Private users have also caught on and use NAS systems at home. But what is a NAS? Read on, and we’ll show you...Network attached storage (NAS)
Multicloud refers to the parallel use of multiple cloud services, such as public, private, or hybrid clouds. This allows you to use different cloud models at the same time and choose the best variant for each application. The individual cloud models can even come from different providers.Multicloud
Virtualizing is becoming more and more important: Its basic concept is that one imposes a virtual, abstract system onto an actual real system. Both software and hardware can be depicted in this way. In order to create a connection between the actual and the virtual system, one requires an additional layer – the hypervisor.Hypervisor
Being able to access your home computer from another location is no longer a complicated matter thanks to remote connection. It is handy to be able to use your computer from the office and swap files. But IP addresses change often and this throws a spanner in the works. DynDNS (DDNS) services are the solution. In this article, we explain what these are and how you can access your computer via the...Dynamic DNS (DynDNS)
With Active Directory, Microsoft has created the non-plus-ultra of central IT management for corporate networks. Comparable to an address book, but with significantly more capabilities for administrators, Windows Active Directory can manage and monitor user accounts and privileges, computer groups, services, and enterprise IT resources. Learn more about what Windows AD can do.Active Directory
IPv6 is the newest version of the internet protocols, and should overcome the central issues of its predecessors. Included in these issues is the impending shortage of IPv4 addresses as well as the violation of the end-to-end principle by the strict separation of public and private IPs. This article gives an overview of the functions of IPv6 as well as the structure and distribution of address...Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)
The equation is simple—without it, there’s simply no web content: when a web server is out of order, then it’s no longer possible to call up any websites that are connected to it. Web servers are what allow online presences to reach the internet in the first place. But just how do these systems work? Which functions do the programs responsible for this task offer? And what’s an example of a good...What is a web server?
Anyone who deals with networks will come across the term WAN (Wide Area Network) sooner or later. Lots of people confuse WAN with WLAN or LAN. But a Wide Area Network clearly differs from these two other network types. We explain what a WAN is used for, how it’s structured, and compare it with related networks.WAN (Wide Area Network)
Virtual machines are extremely practical and versatile: Do you want to set up an isolated test environment, run a Linux application on your Windows computer, or provide different operating systems for cross-platform software tests? With the right virtualization software and an appropriate image file, this is easy. We will introduce you to the basics of hypervisor-supported hardware virtualization...Virtual Machines
The Uniform Resource Locator (short: URL) is one of the basic standard tools of the internet. URLs make it easy to uniquely identify resources on the internet and find their location. Internet users use webpage URLs to surf the web, follow hyperlinks or download files. The concept is based on a human tangible syntax that is automatically read out and interpreted by machines.What is a URL (Uniform Resource Locator)?
