Jun 01, 22 Advantages of server hosting in a data center

Posted by in Technology

Blog provided by Electric Kitten When you host your servers in a data center, you get access to a wide range of benefits that can improve your business. Here are some of the top advantages: Security – Data centers provide around-the-clock security, ensuring that your servers are safe from theft or damage. They also have strict access controls in place, so only authorized personnel can enter the facility. This helps keep your data safe and secure. A further benefit is that your organization also has many of the pre-requisites for the security components of various international standards and audit requirements immediately and at no additional cost to maintain or manage. Reliability – Data centers are designed for high availability, meaning your servers will always be up and running. They have multiple power sources and cooling systems in place, so you can rest assured knowing your business is always online. These redundant resources are monitored around the clock, with sub millisecond changeover times for systems like power and cooling. Scalability – When you host your servers in a data center, you can scale up or down as needed depending on traffic demands or seasonal changes.

What is a VPS?

Apr 10, 22 What is a VPS?

Posted by in Technology

Blog provided by Electric Kitten A virtual private server (VPS) is a type of hosting where you can purchase a portion of a physical server, essentially making it your own. This gives you the ability to install and run your own software, including custom configurations and applications. How does a VPS differ from a VM? A Virtual Machine abstracts the hardware and runs an operating system on each virtual machine. While a VPS is often a single Operating System that runs containers that abstract the OS making it seem like each VPS has its own OS. There are many reasons why someone might choose to use a VPS: for example, if you need more control over your hosting environment than what’s offered by traditional shared hosting plans; if you have specific compliance requirements that preclude using public cloud services; or if you want to set up an isolated development or testing environment without having to invest in hardware and infrastructure. When choosing a VPS provider, it’s important to consider factors such as price, features offered (including operating system options), bandwidth and storage quotas, customer support quality, and the company’s reputation. If you need LA colocation or dedicated server provider you can trust, contact Electric Kitten today. They’ve provided reliable web hosting services for almost two decades. If you are in the Southern California area, give them a call at 877-821-HOST or email them at...

Posted by in Business Services

Lots of people have done this. At some point in their lives, their business failed. Or they found themselves in the middle of an ugly divorce that tore apart their family life. Sometimes when everything that can possibly go wrong, does, we feel like throwing in the towel and just quitting. And often, this is exactly what people do…they give up on themselves and on life. They stop trying to create abundance. Walt Disney started out as a commercial artist, forming a company called, “Iwerks-Disney Commercial Artists.” His company failed, but Disney loved animation and kept working in the field. Eventually, he opened his own animation company which was very successful, but he was not good at managing finances and finally had to declare bankruptcy. After this devastating failure, he joined forces with his brother Roy, and moved to Hollywood to produce cartoons for movie studios. In spite of multiple failures and bankruptcy, Disney kept moving forward, doing what he loved. Eventually, he developed a character named, “Mickey Mouse” and the rest is history. No one is ever 100% successful at everything! Sometimes our worst failures are the beginning of a whole new and incredible career. Don’t camp out at your failures! Don’t build an altar to them where you moan, cry and refuse to move forward. You failed! So what? Get up and get going again as soon as possible on the road to create abundance. You only lose the game if you stop playing. Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue offers some help. The book is for individuals who want to live a life of abundance.

How cleaning your furniture helps prevent the spread of COVID-19

Jul 17, 20 How cleaning your furniture helps prevent the spread of COVID-19

Posted by in Health

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise Even before the current pandemic, cleaning your furniture was a healthy practice that helped prevent the build-up of dirt, dust, and other materials that attract germs and allergens, which cause disease and discomfort. With the advent of COVID-19, it has become much more crucial to clean and disinfect your often-used furniture, since the coronavirus has been known to live on common household surfaces. According to the research, the virus can stay on surfaces such as metal for 5 days and on wood for 4 days. The virus can also stay on surfaces such as plastic and stainless steel for 2 to 3 days. Because of this, it is crucial to clean and disinfect your indoor and outdoor furniture regularly. Cleaning removes dirt and other materials that attract germs, but disinfecting is necessary to kill any germs left after cleaning. Cleaning can be done with a sponge or cloth dipped in a soap and water solution, while disinfecting should be done with potent germ-killing solutions that can get rid of the coronavirus on contact. The EPA has a list of disinfectants effective against the coronavirus, while the CDC also has directions for making homemade disinfectant solutions out of water and bleach or alcohol. Be sure to stay safe and follow the instructions as you keep your house and furniture clean and healthy. If you need any new indoor or outdoor wicker furniture during this time, Wicker Paradise is still available to meet all of your wicker furniture needs.
