The power of UNIX and Linux over other operating system

Linux and UNIX based operating systems have gained a lot of popularity in the recent years. While Linux operating system is available under general public license and is available freely, the UNIX is the same as that of Linux but it is copyrighted name that only big companies can use. It has almost the same features as that of the Linux operating system and also shares the same advantages with it. The Linux kernel that first came up as a project work of a student in the early 1990’s has now become a worldwide success. The Linux kernel can be modified as and when required and all you need to know for this is any of the programming languages such as c, python etc.

The major advantages of Linux or UNIX over the other operating systems are the following

Stability

Linux or UNIX operating systems are much more stable than the others. Even if an application  in Linux crashes which is itself very rare, then generally no harm is done to the kernel itself and the problem can be solved just by re installing that particular application.

Free software

Linux kernel is available at complete free of cost and most of the applications that come with Linux are also available freely. Although UNIX is copyrights but still the applications are free here as well.

Linux can run on any machine and it has minimum hardware requirements. It can run even on the old 386 or 486 machines because of its minimum RAM requirements.

Security

Till date no virus threats have been reported that has affected the Linux or the UNIX kernel. There is no need of installing any antivirus programs and still remain protected while you use Linux or UNIX.

Open source software

Linux and UNIX are open source software whose code is available to all the users worldwide and you may choose to debug any problem that you may find out or add any module that is necessary to suit your specific needs.

Portability

Websites that you design on a UNIX or a Linux based platform can easily be hosted on other operating systems servers as well but the reverse is not always true.

Choice (freedom)

With a Linux running on your system you have the power to control each and every single thing on your computer right from the way it looks to the way it functions.

These are some of the basic advantages of a Linux or UNIX operating system. It gives the power in your hands to change around the working of your operating system according to your needs and demands. Due to this feature Linux which once started as a project work of a student has now attained great popularity among the users worldwide. If you are really ready to add on changes make modifications to your operating system, Linux is the best choice for you but for those who are happy with just basic computing needs, they can chose other operating systems which do not support modifications and still costs more than Linux or Unix.

Five tips to ensure a green web

Five tips to ensure a green web

Green web has given a new definition to today’s world of internet marketing strategies. Various online hubs for various companies have opened to promote their green web products. Just like other marketing strategies, launching green websites requires a proper planning for perfect execution, optimization and improvement of the site.

We all know that global warming is one of the major problems that our planet is facing. Due to the excessive burning of fossil fuels and growing industrialization the pollution level is increasing day by day.  Thus due to the green house effect the temperature of the earth is increasing day by day. It has been calculated that every year the temperature of the earth is increasing by 1%. This is a matter of great concern as this increase in temperature may led to melting of ice in the arctic region resulting in floods and other modes of destruction. Thus any site providing any information about the serious problem of environmental pollution is highly encouraged and comes under “green web hosting”. Thus green web aims at creating a pollution free environment.

Five tips to ensure a green web

1. Resource Optimization

Green web hosting may be used to ensures that the needs of the customers are met keeping in consideration the stock of the resources. It first analyzes the amount of resources needed via virtual simulation and then it offers resources to meet that necessary need not wasting any resource. Thus excess use of resources is prevented resulting in less pollution and also preserves the resource for future generation. Thus we should give more stress on Green Web Hosting.

2. Renewable Energy

Those resources which never get exhausted are called Renewable Energy. The main advantage of using Renewable Energy is that they create relatively less pollution compared to non- Renewable Energy like solar energy, hydro energy, and wind energy. Propane is also another Renewable source of Energy. Thus green web can be used to spread awareness among the people about the advantages of using Renewable source of energy.

3. Efficient Machines

We all know that data storing servers consumes relatively a very high amount of power thus resulting in more wastage of resources and creating more pollution. Thus green web prefers those machines which work at relatively lower power supply thus less amount of carbon dioxide and heat is produced. This helps us in two ways, first one is causes reduction in pollution and secondly it saves the energy.  It also focuses on well maintenance of the machine, so that it can be used for longer period of time.

4. Service Levels

The security levels of green web hosting are better that other hosting. The secured part of the site are not publicly visible to all, one has to go through all the security procedure to access those parts. Thus security and privacy of the green web are properly maintained.

5. Measuring performance and reliability

The performance and maintenance of green web is same as non green web hosting. It mainly aims at customer’s service to get their full satisfaction. Also minimum down payment is required for such sites without compromising any service.

Bounceweb promises to be always a green webhost.

High availability of online transaction website

With practically everything being available online many small-scale business websites has taken up the online transaction method. Not only can a customer now get information and the availability about the product but can also purchase it online and get it delivered to his/her door step.

High availability of online transaction website

It is only preferable for any businessman to avoid personal interaction with the customer and get everything done through the virtual web. This takes the business to a larger scale and the bigger it can grow.

Important considerations to be take before availing online transaction

The traffic expected to your official business website. This can be checked by admin of the website. If the website is bringing a lot of traffic and it is convenient to get orders online and complete the transactions then only the online transaction facility should be made available.

The costs involved. Many Internet Service Providers allow to build in your website for as less as 30$ per month. The traffic should compensate for these costs and give profits.

High availability of online transaction websiteAssuring Security to the customer

The websites should be made using professional domain names because unknown/complicated domain names tend to discourage the customers from sharing financial information to you website. Go Daddy, eNom, Net firms, etc offer domain names at affordable rates. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate should be purchased from the domain service provider. It provides a 256-bit encryption and keeps the customer payment data safe from hackers. All the above domain name providers offer SSL certificates at affordable rates. One must always take professional advice and get your website audited by an independent expert.

How to build a transaction website

Before buying the domain name and the SSL certificate you must create an attractive website for your business which is easy to navigate and place orders. You can take professional help by website designers or recruit a web developer.

High availability of online transaction website

To receive the payments from the customers you can use the payment services provided by PayPal or World Pay. Transactions are charged like 1.4%-3.5% for each transaction which is less than many known credit card suppliers. Using reputed service providers like PayPal or World Pay will make your customers comfortable in sharing their credit card details.

High availability of online transaction websiteAlso another way of receiving payments is to set up a merchant account with a credit card provider. This will be done by opening an account and obtaining bank references. Here too you need to pay a % for each transaction (Varies depending on your business). These however, attract a higher risk due to high risk of card details theft. Few credit card merchant services are; American Express, Streamline, CCAvenue etc.

Furthermore, the marketing of the product should be proper and elegant on the websites. Inclusion of photos, graphics, and specifications attract more customers.

The Pros

The biggest advantage of online transaction is that you get the payment at the time of order, thus improving your cash flow. You can focus more on sales and marketing as online transactions are easy to manage. This gives more exposure to your product.

The Cons

The only disadvantage with this system is the risk involved. If you put in sufficient effort with respect to the security of your website then online transaction proves to be another way to make more money.

Cloud computing comprise of paradigm shift, which is followed from mainframe shift to client server shift since 1980. The internal details are hidden from the normal user who has nothing to do with the internal integrities of the software. Thus implementing, data abstraction. Also cloud computing sets a new consumption and the delivery model to modify the IT services on Internet.

Proper meaning of Cloud Computing

In cloud computing, cloud is symbolic metaphor for Internet. On the basis of this cloud drawing telephone networks were represented in the past. Later when the concept of internet came, this concept was used in designing the network diagram for inter-connecting the computers over internet. Thus Cloud computing givers provides online business applications accessed from other software or web servers like Web Browser, but the data and the software are stored on the main server. Almost all cloud computing servers deliver services through inbuilt servers and common centers. Thus cloud computing is meant for giving quality services to customers.

Today the major application of cloud computing is in the region of storage and this is expected to increase further in the next five years, but after that period the concept of cloud computing will reach further limits and the practical application of this concept will increase further. According to Tom Clark an IBM engineer thought application of cloud computing in storage management will increase but various other applications on network management will also gather momentum like servers for file transfer, databases and many others. Thus cloud computing concept is not simply meant for storage but for various other applications and this massage will get globalized in each and every corner of the world.

What web promises on the field of healthcare

In today’s world INTERNET plays a very important role in our daily life. It has become a part and parcel of our daily routine. Be it pizza, be it entertainment or any information, whatever we want are now available online just only a “click” of our mouse away. Everything we do, everything we want, from hair pin to health care services are available on the net.

What web promises on the field of healthcare

21st Century Health Care: Boons of Internet

Men of today’s era have higher standards of living, more money in the pocket than before, more exposed to globalization and modernization. One thing which is very closely embedded in all these is computer. Now people have more access to the internet. Owing to all this modern health care facilities are now available online.

Now people can locate hospitals and what are the services available there, just by simply sitting at home and surfing the net. Now people can communicate with their doctors simply via emails at very low costs. Consumers can also know about the drugs and medicines available in the market and can know about the substitute of a particular prescribed drug in case of its unavailability.

It not only helped the patients or in terms of economics the consumers but also helped the doctors. It helped the doctors to keep in touch with their patients through emails. Moreover they can monitor their patients even when they are away by simply getting their reports online. Not only these but a doctor can also go for a video conferencing even during surgeries to consult with other and more experienced doctors who are very far away. Internet has almost become successful in turning world into a global village.

What web promises on the field of healthcare

21st Century Health Care: Banes of Internet

With all the good things follow some bad thing, just like darkness following light. People searching for medicines online for particular illness are flooded with choices and they do not know which one to take. Moreover a doctor can diagnose a disease better when he is physically near the patient. Online reception medical reports and diagnosing a disease based on it reduces the efficiency of the doctor. Again consulting a doctor from very far away through internet may result into confusion. For example he may prescribe some medicines which are available in the region of his work but unavailable at the patients’ end and he might not know the substitutes which are available at the patients’ end.

Forecast

Though there are many difficulties and drawbacks in using the medical services online, but in near future it will prove to be very cheap and effective medium of communication between the patient and the doctor. It will be possible for the near and dear ones of a patient to monitor him at the hospital by simply sitting at home. With advent of newer and better technology a patient can easily communicate with the doctor via video conferencing which though available today but not widespread among the common masses. To conclude with one thing can be said that is the internet is growing by leaps and bounds, it is affecting all the aspects of our lives and so the health care system can’t be left out.
