Network Operating System

Fri, 20 Apr 2012 07:04:14 +0100

A network operating system is software that controls a network of computer and its message traffic and queues. It controls access by multiple users to network resources such as files and provides for certain administrative functions including security of the system. A network operating system is not the same as the networking tools provided by some existing operating systems such as Windows XP. A network operating system is one that has been specifically written to keep networks running at optimal performance.

A network operating system is most frequently used with local area networks and wide area networks, but it can also have applications for larger network systems. A network is a series of multiple computers connected to a central server and is most often used in businesses for the purpose of file sharing.

The network operating system is one that includes special functions for connecting computers and devices into a local area network. Some popular systems for both DOS and Windows systems include Novell Netware, Windows NT and 2000, Sun Solaris, and IBM OS/2. A network operating system has many features that are essential to file sharing. They include:

* Providing basic operating system features like support for processors, protocols, automatic hardware detection and support for multi-processing of applications
* Security features such as authentication, authorization, log-on restrictions and access control
* Providing name and directory services
* Allowing file, print, web services, back-up and replication services
* Support for inter-networking such as routing and WAN ports
* Give user management and support tools for log on and log off, remote access, system management, administration, and auditing tools with graphical interfaces
* Clustering capabilities, fault tolerant, and high availability systems

Many network operating systems are familiar to individual computer users in that they are often network versions of personal computer operating system. That includes Windows 2000 Professional, Windows NT, and Red Hat Linux.

When you have a series of computers all hooked together on a network, the operating system used to control those computers is very important. All effective network operating systems should have built-in measures of security that keep the computers on the network safe from breach by outsiders. Monitoring capabilities by a system administrator is also very important to have in a network operating system.

Many businesses, both large and small take great pains in choosing the right type of operating system for their network. They want to make sure that sensitive information is not compromised in any way. That’s why choosing a network operating system needs to be everything that the company needs it to be.

What Is A Business Broker

Sat, 18 Feb 2012 01:06:57 +0100

A business broker is an intermediary between a buyer and a seller of a business. In most cases a business broker represents the seller in the sale of a business. It is the business brokers' responsibility to find qualified buyers for their clients.

A business broker is similar to a real estate agent who sells homes and earns a commission. But instead of selling homes, business brokers specialize in selling small and mid size companies -- everything from your local pizza parlor, dry cleaners and convenience store to larger companies, such as manufacturing and wholesale & distribution companies.

A business broker connects people who are looking to sell a business with people who are looking to buy a business, and helps them to complete the transaction. In most cases a business broker is involved from day one until the actual closing of the business. The business brokers' responsibility is to be an intermediary between the buyer, the seller, the landlords and the attorneys and make sure it is a smooth process.

Brokers supply numerous benefits to both buyers and sellers. For example, sellers benefit because they do not have to spend time and money searching for buyers. Qualified business brokers have access to people that are in the market to purchase a business, and they know how to attract and screen potential buyers much more quickly then do typical business owners. If you do not have the time to market selling your own business, it may be a good idea to sit down with a local business broker in your area to discuss representing you in the sale of your business.

Innovation And Services On The Adriatic Coast

Sat, 18 Feb 2012 01:06:30 +0100

Lignano Sabbiadoro is a seaside resort, which was actually founded at the beginning of the century as a holiday destination, but which bloomed in the Sixties and Seventies.

The historical centre of the modern town has developed around the “Fontana Square” and the club “Terrazza a Mare”, a famous meeting point on the beach that eventually turned out to be one of Lignano's symbols.

The first beach resorts and the first hotels built in Lignano were located right in this area and some of them are still active in Lignano Sabbiadoro.

Many hotels have been recently refurbished in order to provide its guests with a lot of services, including satellite television, bicycle rentals, air conditioning and heating system, a peculiarity that should not be taken for granted.

Lignano is actually usually thought to be just a seaside resort for summer holidays, therefore only a few accommodations are equipped with heating system. It is easy to understand how harmful this could be for the overall tourist offer, which is in this way strongly limited. In fact, all new guidelines for the development of the Italian Tourism Industry suggest quite the reverse since experts maintain that the tourist offer in Italy must be no longer bound to the summer season and just a few hotels in Lignano seem to be already complying with these new suggestions.

In order to handle the crisis of the tourist sector several local associations supporting tourist development and advertising campaigns for the whole town have been founded by local businessmen: a common effort to create a complete “holiday system” seems to be the right way to remain competitive on a market sector, where the traditional boundaries of time and space have disappeared, thus originating a completely new system with its new rules.

The idea of “hotel” must be enriched with further interesting nuances in order to be competitive on the world market: these nuances can be understood as structural changes that involve heavy investments, or just as details concerning peculiar and exclusive services, like a web-cam for example: these last kind of changes do not require heavy commitment, but their effect is a kind of added value that perfectly balances the initial effort and they have a quite early and clearly positive return on investment.

Being consistent with their active participation in the above mentioned associations, some hotels have decided to introduce new innovative services that are thought from a more general point of view involving a cooperation among all local activities. For example, the Hotel Nettuno has decided to install a new web-cam which, due to its avourable position, allows a wonderful view on the town centre and on the beach of Lignano: access to the web-cam is free and easy, by clicking on the icon “webcam” every surfer will be shown the coast of the Upper Adriatic Sea in real time at any time during the day and in the night as well.

By installing this new service the Hotel Nettuno has not only improved the quality of its services, but it has actually helped increasing the visibility of the whole resort, too. Even though the experience of the Hotel Nettuno proves that this is a good solution, just a few hotels in Lignano have decided to offer a such a service, since it is actually an investment whose return is not exclusively for the investor and its costs involve image-investment, the relevance of which is unluckily not yet clear to everybody...
