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 ...

Don’t Overpack or Underdress for Business Travel

The other day I was leaving my Toronto office space when I spotted an acquaintance who works for a company on another floor of the Toronto Star Building. He was dressed in a pair of jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt under a spring windbreaker jacket. He was dragging behind him a very large suitcase and a slightly smaller travel bag. From the way he was dressed and the amount of luggage he had, I assumed he was going on a vacation, so I asked him where he was traveling to. He then told me he was was heading out on a two-day business trip. I wanted to ask him if he may have over-packed and under-dressed. This got me thinking about some advice I have often read regarding how and what you should pack for a business trip. First off, you should choose luggage that is a size or two smaller than what ...

Big Data? What About Big Brother Canada or Office Space Big Boss?

This week we did a few blogs about Big Data that got some attention, but not as much as other series we have done. So we will look at other topics for future blogs. This writer was thinking about this while watching his guilty pleasure “Big Brother Canada” and thought it would be funny to see how the game would play out in his Toronto office space. The game of “Office Space Big Boss” would be a homage to our bloggers favourite reality show “Big Brother.” In “Office Space Big Boss” 10 entrepreneurs would be competing not for a large sum of cash or a job, but instead for a corner window office to run their business from for one year. These entrepreneurs would not be locked inside a Team Space office, but instead would have to just work in the o...

A Look at Big Data and How it is Collected

In our efforts to help entrepreneurs and small businesses understand big data, we wrote a blog called Big Data is Not Just for Big Business. In that entry we did not give a simple explanation of what big data was and how to explain it to those who are not that technically minded. That was until one of our Toronto virtual office clients pointed out to us that there is an upcoming big data learning event being held in 18 cities around the world that involves over 200 meet-ups for over 3,000 participants all simultaneously connected during the week of April 22 to 28, 2013. One of the Toronto events is a breakfast meeting called “Big data and what it means to my business.” This event is aimed specifically at executives who are trying to understand how big data will affect their bus...

Big Data is Not Just for Big Business

Have you ever been searching for something online and shortly after noticed ads about what you were looking for when doing other searches, or when visiting other websites? Those are called Hyper Targeting ads. Recently one of our Toronto office space for lease clients commented that he was looking up the statistics on a particular car for a family member and within a few days, he was seeing ads for that car when he visited some of his favourite websites. This was not a coincidence! The information was collected and sold by the site he had visited and searched, so that advertisers could mine that data and come up with a strategy to deliver ads specific to him. Some are saying that “Big Data” means less work for “Mad Men!” Yes, it is not just the name of a TV show, bu...

Content Creation and Sharing Your Content are Keys to Success

“Thank you for taking my content and sharing it. Just please be sure to give me some credit.” Yes, you heard that correctly! It used to be that people would come after you for taking content created by another person and sharing it (as a copyright infringement). But in this modern digital world content is often being created to be syndicated to as many people as possible. One of the best ways of spreading links to your content is with social media sites and RSS feeds. Over the years here at Telsec, we have learned that creating content that offers value not only to our long-time office space Toronto tenants, but also to those who might be interested in a Toronto virtual office solution, offers a distinct benefit. We try to deliver content that is not just about office space or ...
