    So a market oriented pricing model should it be required, the the individual services has separated. As well, there must be clarity about the quantity. Also, prices within a band should be always floating predictable so that at the end of the month, a settlement is possible according to unit prices. As a smoothing of the operating costs will take place in the course of the contract period, it applies to this transparency to ensure. It therefore seems advantageous, in the interest of a traceability from user point of view if the financing cost including interest are shown separately to the real costs. Is also sure that the cost figures are structured, that the expenses for technical operations at any time separately consider the project costs\”, adds active sourcing, Managing Director Stefan rain rivet.

  • IT Security Trends

    Dr. Volker Scheidemann, Marketing Director of the applied security GmbH (apsec), about security issues in cloud computing and information security as a major insurance company and also the flagship Internet party “Pirates” have it in 2012 on awareness of data protection management task and lack data security. This is the year the trend of the last decade. Because it is still lack awareness of the vulnerability of data, that the data theft door is open. At the same time compliance obligations continue to always, according to which companies must comply with legal and industry requirements for protecting data.

    So: who is not so far occurred has still a long way no protection. The trend towards cloud computing will continue unabated in the year 2013. What are the challenges for the IT security there? There are many challenges, both on the technical and organizational and legal level. A technical challenge is safe, so that the data in cloud storage encrypt, that the cloud service provider does not have access. That is when the major providers such as, for example, Apple with the iCloud not so. Even Microsoft, which massively were 8 with Windows SkyDrive integration, has to my knowledge not yet a coherent concept. Only the file upload is not protected via SSL, the data itself however.

    Here, the security-conscious users will have to rely on third-party products as apsec also offers. Security is often equated with firewalls and virus. What advanced security concepts are there? Firewall and virus scanners are the first line of defense in the IT security group of companies, comparable with the defensive wall at the free kick in football. This is only a first protection against intruders from outside. Only additional mechanisms, such as for example encryption solutions offer high safety. Protect in errors and negligence of its employees to stay in the football image: A good keeper behind the wall.

  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

    Pure Siebenmorgen COC AG makes a comparison of the respective benefits from Burghausen, 07.05.2012 – triggered by the proliferation of virtualization technologies, companies are increasingly faced with the question whether they should focus in its strategic orientation on Terminal Services (TS) or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The first mentioned technology are the applications on a Terminal Server and do not need to be installed on the local computer of the user. In a VDI environment, however, each user has an individual desktop, including the operating system and all required applications. Pure Siebenmorgen, virtualization at the COC AG, head of the Department has made a comparison of the two approaches with respect to the benefits: users flexibility: environment standard applications can be used for comfortable and easily scalable in a TS. Gymnast follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. VDI offer the user a total more setting possibilities and performance. Especially developers and users of several Slightly more virtual machines running any operating system have let VDI an advantage, given that there create operating systems.

    Administration effort: The lower administration overhead is Terminal Services. Even at medium and high number of users, the cost is manageable, while the Administration in the case of VDI with increasing number of users is expensive and complex. But considering the definition of critical applications, clearly the virtual alternative scores. A high utilization of memory and compute-intensive applications work within a virtual machine and have no influence on the stability and integrity of other desktops. The Terminal Server solution requires a sophisticated and thus also extensive application in such cases.

    Cost: VDI requires a higher capacity and higher storage capacities, as well as central storage as opposed to the Terminal Server technology. This affects the cost of server hardware. And this has the following background: at any virtual machine operating system and local applications must be installed, while the resources at the Terminal approach. Licensing: cost differences also arise in licensing operating systems and additional programs.
