  • 10 reasons your Wi-Fi speed stinks (and what you can do about it)

    The first 801.11ac chipsets are coming soon, but 802.11n is likely to stick around for many years to come -- both in the business world and our homes. Unfortunately, the 300Mbps (megabits per second) that the n-standard promises rarely delivers anything even close and proves to be a massive bottleneck in the days of 50/100Mbps (or more?) broadband connections, 1080p video streaming, massive backups and so forth.

  • Top 10 Linux distributions for business

    One of the most confusing things for the newcomer to Linux is how many distributions, or versions, of the operating system there are. Ubuntu is the one most people have heard of, but there are hundreds of others as well, each offering some variant on the basic Linux theme.

  • Understanding Hitachi's plunge into the blue

    HDS has added BlueArc's high-performance NAS to its portfolio in a 5-year OEM deal and is getting involved in lots of deals as a result.
