What should Women wear as Business Casual Attire?

To start off this blog, I will say that I am not a woman, but I have talked to many women about this topic as part of my research. The best way to start off is to quote a woman who simply stated “What ever you you do, don’t confuse club attire with business attire. That being said, if you would wear it to a club, you probably should not wear it in an office space business environment.” Though this is good advice, I am sure that many women who work in professional office space environments already realize that. The intent of this blog is to explore good ideas regarding what women should wear in a business casual office setting. Just like my blog on business-casual-for-men-at-the-office, I will make it fun, but talk about the basics of how women should dress casually for th...

Business Casual for Men at The Office

As I mentioned in the last blog, I had a blog request from one of our followers to write about the subject of business casual in a fun way that was not preachy. I decided in this blog to specifically talk about business casual for men and explore options of how to dress appropriately for your office space environment, while still being able to feel relaxed and casual. Lets first talk about the basics. Unless you are a top executive working for a computer company in an office space that is more about creativity and development of software, jeans are not even close to business casual unless they are black and crisp. Even black and crisp jeans are not really business casual, but with the right accessories you could pull it off. But for now let’s say no to jeans. The best casual slacks a...

Just what are Data Back-up Appliances?

As we wrap up our office space blog series on data storage and back-up, we need to address the topic of data back-up appliances. Not everyone feels comfortable relying on cloud back-up, and even those who use a cloud service provider may still want to keep a local back-up copy anyway. When considering keeping a local back-up in-house, you may want to consider using a purpose-built back-up appliance that combines software and the hard drive disk space needed for back-ups. Purpose-Built Back-up Appliances are designed to improve the back-up process by decreasing back-up and recovery windows across multiple applications and computer operating platforms. They work by leveraging disk-based technology so that they are less sensitive to network latency than tape media, yet are far faster at locat...

How much Data do you really need to back-up and how much is Duplicate Data?

Continuing with our series of blog entry’s about creating and implementing data storage and back-up plans, we thought we should also share some information about how you can reduce the amount of data that you need to back-up. In our last blog Have You Considered Hybrid Data Storage Solutions we discussed ways to cost effectively store your data while optimizing the speed at which you could use your data. So just how can you reduce the amount of data you are backing up? One way you can reduce the amount and size of the data you need to back up is by implementing data deduplication. Yes, that is not a commonly used word outside of IT circles, but it is one that you will hear more and more as you learn to manage your data. We actually first heard the term last year when a office for ren...

Have you considered Hybrid Data Storage Solutions?

As we continue our blog series “Has Your Small Business Planned Your Data Storage and Backup Strategy?” that discusses the importance of small business to have a solid plan for their data storage and back-up needs, we wanted to focus this blog entry more on actual local storage of your business data. We want to share some advice on the technology that small businesses who have office space Toronto are looking at, to deploy their centralized data-storage needs that can store and protect their valuable information. There are three basic requirements when considering data storage – cost, capacity and speed of access. As well, there are different types of data-storage devices that help to meet different data-storage requirements. There are your basic hard drives that are available ...

Cloud Servers as a Possible Data Storage and Back-up Solution

As mentioned in our last blog, this week we are going to explore the various types of data storage and help our blog followers as well as our office for rent Toronto clients to find the right solutions that work for their data. In this blog, we will be talking about the advantages and disadvantages of storing your data using a cloud server service. Even more than larger enterprises, small businesses need to concentrate on what they do best to survive and cannot afford the time to worry about losing their data or be without it for more than a few hours. This is why many small business owners choose to outsource their data storage and back-up to an online storage service so they do not have to worry about it. A few of our Toronto office space tenants use not only cloud solutions for their da...

Has your Small Business Planned its Data Storage and Back-up Strategy?

Some small and medium-sized businesses are looking at the effect Big Data has had on them and how they can tap into it. But many small businesses are not thinking about their local data. Recently, one staffer was asked by one of our office space Toronto tenants what he should do about his slow computer. The person mentioned that his computer had started slowing down and was not working as well as it should have been – making him become concerned about his data storage in the event that the computer crashed. To which he was reminded of the saying “Your data is only as good as your last back-up.” Having a data-storage plan is just as important as your data back-up plan. You should have a data-storage plan that takes into account how and where your data is backed up. Traditionally, when most ...
