5. Zenith Smart Style Office / Mirror Cloud Solution

A revolutionary combination of hardware and software, as an appliance, at an affordable price, that can be used by companies to deploy virtual servers and desktops. The appliance has built-in mechanism for continuous snapshot backups. Due to virtual machine technology resources can be optimized as per the server/application requirements.

From the Cloud Management Center, the IT manager can control the whole IT infrastructure in the company.

Virtual Server / Desktop: Virtual Server / Desktop is a virtual machine that runs within the SmartStyle environment. It can be accessed over RDP, SmartStyle Viewer, Thin Client etc. and can used as a Windows / Linux production machine.

CPU & Memory: These are virtual variables assigned to the virtual machines. The CPU, memory, and storage resources can be expanded on virtual workloads.

Storage with BitSpread Technology: The cornerstone of SmartStyle’s high availability rests in a revolutionary cloud file system. BitSpread technology ensures data is preserved the moment it is written. Disk Spread Policies determine how many hard drives data is written across in a way that X many of those drives can fail before there is data loss. For example, a typical SmartStyle policy is written such that data is written over fifteen hard drives so that seven hard drives can fail before you would lose any data.

Thin clients: Thin Clients can be used to replace traditional desktop systems. Thin Clients save workspace, consume less power, and produce less heat than traditional a desktop. Thin Clients are perfect for “Green IT” initiatives as they consume significantly lower power.

Backup and Recovery: SmartStyle retains data using a process called Zero Copy Snapshots. With Zero Copy Snapshots instead of deleting the data pointers, SmartStyle retains a copy of the pointers and stores them in a database. Additionally, data is written sequentially across hard drives, not randomly. Using timestamps and the pointer database, SmartStyle can reconstruct data from any 15 minute point-in-time for 7 to 90 days.

Mirror Cloud: For those who are cautious, you can even replicate to 2 locations. Using MirrorCloud Transporter you can also send incremental files over the internet.

9. Thawte/Verisign Secure Certificates

SSL certificates keep online interactions private even though they travel across the public Internet, and they help customers gain the confidence to transact with your web site. Doing business online without SSL is like leaving customer credit card numbers on the counter or offering a dressing room without a door.

What is an SSL Certificate?

An SSL certificate is a bit of code on your web server that provides security for online communications. When a web browser contacts your secured web site, the SSL certificate enables an encrypted connection. It’s kind of like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail.

SSL certificates also inspire trust because each SSL certificate contains identification information. When you request an SSL certificate, a third party (such as Thawte) verifies your organization’s information and issues a unique certificate to you with that information. This is known as the authentication process.

Computer Pride has partnered with Thawte to provide with secure certificates that will give you the seal of trust to your clients when accessing your websites, e-commerce sites etc.
