Hey everyone, my name is Jana Hackman and I'm a new member to the Alberta Sales Team at Whipcord. Like most people I've met out west, I'm a transplant to Calgary as I grew up in a small town in Northwestern Ontario (Lake of the Woods).
Hi, my name is Karla Ginter, and I crunch the numbers here at Whipcord. I was born and raised in southern Manitoba, and thus, am well versed in swatting mosquitoes and shovelling enormous drifts of snow. The mountains called my name for enough years that when presented the opportunity for a transfer to southern Alberta in 2002, my husband and I jumped at it.
Summer got away from us, but I’d like welcome our new staff members! We've had a really exciting year as we pursue tomorrow's digital world, and with that growth we're also looking to expand our team. Exciting things are happening at Whipcord - keep an eye out for upcoming announcements!
So far we’ve discussed networks and protocols. Both have been fairly general topics. but now we come to something a little more specific: Internet Protocol (or IP) addresses, specifically with a focus on IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4).
A protocol, in general terms, might be described as a formal set of rules to govern interactions between two entities. Another way to think of them might be like shared languages. For example, if I’m speaking Inuktitut and you’re speaking Swahili, our conversation likely won't be very fruitful.
First days on new the job can be a little scary for everyone, but in this case, they had me come in before my first day to get introduced to the people that work in the building. They seemed like very friendly, cool and welcoming people, which made me feel more excited than intimidated.
In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I outlined several key aspects of IT infrastructure, the prevailing types of cloud and managed infrastructure and the different approaches to creating a business case for the cloud. So how do we bring it all together?
What exactly is private cloud, and how is it different from public cloud services?
I think one way to look at it is that private cloud is the sort of cloud you would choose to build for yourself. Based on an industry standard platform, fully compatible with your existing Enterprise applications, secure and isolated from the public Internet.
Okay, call me a grammar nerd if you'd like, but when we talk about the Internet, it should be capitalized.
In this blog series we'll present the business case for cloud computing to empower more organizations to see the financial advantages that augment the technological benefits of migrating to cloud computing. In this series installment, we'll delve further into the different types of Cloud and the associated costs.
