3 Principles of Data Center Infrastructure Design

3 Principles of Data Center Infrastructure Design

November 16, 2016 in Corporate IT Training, Cisco / by Sara Lamb

Your data center is the most critical resource within your organization. As you know, it provides the means for all storage, management and dissemination of data, applications and communications for your business. When employees and customers are unable to access the servers, storage systems and networking devices that reside in the data center, your entire organization can shut down. Millions of dollars can be lost in a matter of minutes for businesses like banks, airlines, shipping facilities and online brokerages. Faced with these consequences, IT executives today must optimize their data centers, particularly the network infrastructure. When you consider that 70 percent of network downtime can be attributed to physical layer problems, specifically cabling faults, it’s paramount that more consideration be given to infrastructure design.Read More

Is Angular the future of Web Development? WebAssembly is coming.

Is Angular the future of Web Development? WebAssembly is coming.

September 26, 2016 in Corporate IT Training, Web Development / by Sara Lamb

(Written by Doug Hoff/Centriq Training)

Web development has passed through three major architecture patterns. And a fourth is on the way which will add more choices for designers and keep developers busy as they blend the types both by design and confusion.

Google’s Angular framework is an example of the latest style of architecture and with the release of Angular 2.0 has demonstrated that the Single Page Application is getting easier to develop. But it’s not just another framework. It’s on the architectural path that the web is taking in general. The question I want to address is whether or not Angular will be a long-term solution for the web. In doing so, the choices will become clearer how other styles are appropriate or not based on business needs.Read More

Technology changes quickly, which is why your skills should be ever evolving and updated regularly. In a perfect world, every company would have a limitless budget for training and certifications, but unfortunately that’s not how it works at most companies.

You wouldn’t go to a doctor that hadn’t updated their skills in 20 years would you? The same argument can be said for a company leaving their network or website in the hands of someone who hasn’t updated their skills in the last 10 – 15 years!

With that in mind, here are some tips for making the pitch to your boss or upper management as to why paying for training is a wise investment in you and the company.Read More
