Juniper QFabric and Other Technology Making Its Presence Known Around the World

Billed as the foundation of abstracts centers for the next decade, Juniper QFabric is active up to that affirmation in big way with new presences bustling up all beyond the globe. What makes Juniper QFabric such approved technology about the world? It is its adeptness to accommodate advance scale, speed, accumulation and artlessness to ability the billow accretion era, area accretion and accumulator accommodation as a account is delivered to a amalgamate association of end recipients, the Academic Room explains.

More succinctly, as Wikipedia credibility out, “Cloud accretion entrusts casework with a user’s data, software and ciphering over a network.” And added and added more that blazon of bureaucracy and anatomy is getting active everywhere… from Arctic America to Asia, and everywhere in between.

But authoritative billow accretion appear seamlessly requires a solid abstracts centermost fabric, and Juniper QFabric just happens to be the world’s aboriginal accurate one. What are the qualities that set Juniper QFabric afar from the competition?

  • Its architectonics is up to 10 times faster.
  • It uses 77 percent beneath power.
  • It requires 27 percent beneath networking devices.
  • It occupies 90 percent beneath abstracts centermost attic space.
  • It delivers a nine-fold abridgement in operating assets over the abutting aggressive offering.

It is not hasty again that accessories the apple over are axis to Juniper QFabric and added networking technology from the manufacturer. As a case in point, in May 2012, Juniper Networks appear that the aboriginal Juniper QFabric top-of-rack about-face abstracts centermost would be deployed in the Asia Pacific banking casework sector. In a columnist release, the arrangement innovator fabricated the advertisement “that a carrier-class switching basement based on the [Juniper QFabric] architectonics will be deployed at a new abstracts centermost getting congenital by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEx).”

Slated for a 3Q 2012 achievement date, if it opens the HKEx abstracts centermost “will become the aboriginal banking casework chump in Asia to arrange high-performance, ultra-low cessation admission switches based on the Juniper Networks QFabric architecture.”

Southeast Asia, however, isn’t the alone all-around area area Juniper cloud-computing technology is authoritative waves.

It wasn’t the aboriginal time America’s acquaintance to the arctic angry to Juniper technology either. “Last year, Canadian telecommunications provider Bell Canada deployed Juniper’s QFabric architectonics to action abstracts centermost solutions to its managed casework hosting customers.

Internet Marketing Guru Reveals Top SEO Tactics

With Google changing its algorithms no less than twice a year lately, business owners are becoming weary of trying to get a handle on their internet marketing. In its attempt to improve the user’s search engine and Internet experience, Google has wound up being the engine that is driving billions of dollars in online advertising and SEO.

Canadian internet marketing guru, Dave Davies, CEO and founder of Beanstalk Internet Marketing, is known for his intricate knowledge and expertise in the field. While small business owners everywhere are scrambling for authority and page ranking in the hopes of winding up on page one of Google, Davies is steering his clients into successful waters.

We interviewed Davies so he could demystify all of this for our readers. We asked specific, timely questions and were pleased with his no-beat-around-the-bush answers. His well-respected voice in the business makes this interview one to read again and again until your strategy becomes clear. Read on.

Faleris: What inspired your SEO business versus all of the other internet arenas available these days?

Davies: I got my start in the SEO realm working for a web hosting company back in 2000. As their head sales guy it occurred to me that selling would be easier if I got people to call me instead of having to call them. I started optimizing the site, a “game” that was far easier back then, and it worked. In my background I always had a knack for mathematics and was raised by a speech writer so when I settled into a field that is based on algorithms and content, it certainly wasn’t a stretch.

Faleris: Do you think Google will continue to control the search engine kingdom? Projecting into the future, how long do you think it will take Bing and the others to catch up in terms of user/market share?

Davies: I don’t think it’s so much a case of Bing catching up as users changing the way they access information. If I’m going to project 5 years from now I see a world that has Google dominating the mobile space and Bing securing more of the home user space. While I don’t see Bing taking over search per se, their integration into the home (gaming, PC, etc.) will give them a huge advantage. Their engine is fast catching up to Google from a generic perspective and with Google distracted with mobile and their preexisting inroads into the home, if Bing can ensure the user interaction is smooth, they can make gains into the home space which could prove to be highly profitable.

Faleris: Do you feel there is any way to stabilize SEO campaigns so they don’t have to be altered every time Google makes an algorithm update? Or is that just something we can expect while Google reigns?

Davies: In light of the Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird updates the answer has become “yes”. In the past the strategies that worked best/fastest were often algorithm-chasers in that they were techniques deployed purely for the algorithms. Over the past 2 years Google has done an outstanding job of catching up to SEOs and adjusting their ranking formula in ways that make these techniques ineffective.

Essentially – their technology has caught up to what they have been telling SEOs to do all along, and while there will always be adjustments to new technologies, keywords and user interfaces; the days of chasing algorithms is over. We’ve moved from that to a world where we have to view ourselves as Internet marketers and brand representatives. Build authority, build trust, build links that drive traffic and make sure the user likes what they find and you’ll rank well. I don’t see that changing.

Faleris: How can SEO companies get their clients on page one of Google if everyone in those same categories are doing the very same things? Not everyone can be on page one of Google.

Davies: Great question. It’s more a case of not doing the same or doing the same but more. At the end of the day we’re dealing with a mathematical formula and so basic principles can set in. One of two things needs to happen:

  1. Do the same as your competitors and then add 10%, or
  2. Build better than your competitors.

Of course, you can also do both. It may sound simplistic but there’s no reason to make it more complicated than it needs to be. If a competitor builds a link, build one that’s better – or build two.

Faleris: Back links have come to be the mystery of the SEO campaign. Google wants good content to be rewarded. Not everyone has the time or the money to write quality content, so they outsource. Because of this, the content on the internet is getting worse, not better. Google’s interest of improving the internet and search experience is actually forcing the opposite to happen. Your thoughts on this?

Davies: Sadly, this is too often the case. What’s resulted is Google building semantics into their engine that has to extrapolate quality. Essentially what is resulting is that companies that can’t afford to have good copy are finding that their copy can’t rank and that they’ve spent their money on nothing.

Website owners would be better tasked with producing less, high quality copy than producing more low quality. This will also help ensure they’re not calling me up 12 months from now with a “pure spam” penalty or traffic drop during a Panda update.

Faleris: What is your overall SEO philosophy?

Davies: It’s changed a lot since 2000 but at its core it can be summarized with the following: Build good content, get it in front of relevant people who would be interested in it (and more importantly – linking to it) and make sure your visitors are happy.

Faleris: What would you tell an average business owner on handling SEO? Do it yourself? Hire a company? Forget the whole thing? How can an average Joe compete on the internet without deep pockets?

Davies: It’s definitely getting harder and harder. If one’s budget is very tight and they need to go it alone then my advice would be to spend some money in advance to get some good advice from one of the many solid SEO’s who will be happy to do site audits and make sure that you’ve built in a set of hours for them to proof your work.

It might seem expensive. Some audits run in the many thousands of dollars but learning the whole field and making all the mistakes you will along the way costs even more so having someone experienced outline the to-dos (and don’ts) and proof the work afterwards can keep business owners on the right track and get to their goals faster.

If you don’t have a few thousand kicking around then read. And read some more before even touching your site. Further, read Google’s guidelines, print them out and keep them tacked next to your computer and put a post-it on your monitor with the following question: Am I trying to game the system or add value to my site or the sites of others?

Every time you think of a strategy, if it falls in the “gaming” answer then avoid it. If it adds value to your site or the sites of others, then it’s a good strategy that will withstand the test of time.

Faleris: How are companies handling SEO for mobile devices? Is that a whole new arena?

Davies: SEO for mobile has resulted in a lot more work from a design standpoint. While the principles of SEO have remained the same – ranking on mobile has required that we consider areas such as site speed and layout differently for a variety of different devices and recognized that the motivations of users may vary depending on the type of device.

To this end it’s critical to have capable designers and an SEO who understands the different metrics and motivations to consider.

Faleris: What are your pet peeves with Google? Or is that a tough question?

Davies: Pet Peeves with Google:

While Google dominates for a reason (being an extremely good and adaptive engine) many of the strategies they use violate some pretty basic web ethics and may well result in the degradation of web content. A good example is the use of knowledge graphs (those boxes of information to the right of the search results).

The information for these graphs is drawn from web pages and displayed right in the results meaning that the searcher no longer has to click through to the site. While this may seem convenient (and is) it’s removed the ability for the producer of that content to monetize it. First, I just ethically view this as unfair to publishers but secondly, if publishers can’t monetize their content then the content itself will degrade in value. For example, if I can make $200 per page of content I produce then I can afford to spend $150 to have it produced. If the monetization then drops to $100 I’ll only be able to afford to spend $50 on producing that page of copy. And the quality will drop.

While convenient today, I don’t like what it may spell out for the future.

Faleris: Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about SEO companies, strategies or your projections for the future?

Davies: Be an expert. You know more about your field that those who need your products, services or information. Blog regularly, get your name out there on Q&A sites like Quora and be strong on social media. SEO isn’t just about links and content anymore, it’s about reputation and authority. Be an authority and a source of industry information and the rankings will follow. Now and into the future. And make sure your site is well coded.

Understanding Web Hosting for Novices

Having a website is different from having it online. You can create a website and access it via a browser on your computer. But for others to access the same website, it needs to be on an online server. Simply put, web hosting is making sure websites are kept on the Web so that they are available to Internet users across the globe.

The definition of web hosting has become broader over time with web hosting companies offering multiple features such as providing the web space, email hosting, programming, web designing services, etc.

What is a web server?

A web server is a physical computer with software applications where a website and its database are stored and processed. When a visitor requests for your website on a web browser, the server is responsible for taking the request and providing them your website. Broadly speaking, a web server is a fast and efficient computer connected to the Internet round the clock and is capable of handling high traffic and load.

Web host

A web host is a company that owns a web server. It rents or sells the web server space to its clients. Your website is hosted on these web servers – making it available to Internet users. A Web host can have anywhere from one to several thousand computers that run web hosting software. A web host also manages its software, security, support, bandwidth, speed and a lot more.

Things to consider while planning for web hosting

Before you choose a service, estimate your present and potential hosting needs that may arise in future. Some factors you should consider while going for web hosting are listed here.

Types of servers:

Web hosting companies generally offer three different types of servers – shared, dedicated and VPS (Virtual Private Server). Multiple websites share common hardware and resources in a shared server and thus it is economical. This is ideal for personal or small business websites. Using a shared server is hassle-free as the maintenance and security issues are taken care of by the web host.

A VPS is recommended for businesses that look for more customized options in the server. Though the hardware is the same shared by multiple websites, site owners have independent control over the part of the server and the associated features. They can program their server section as per their wish and hence the data are protected.

A dedicated server is generally opted by businesses (often big businesses) that look for top quality resources. The owner has full control over the server but may require technical skills to manage a dedicated web server.

Types of operating system:

Windows and Linux are widely used by web servers. Each has advantages and limitations. If you have technical skills and if you are looking for something inexpensive, Linux based servers can be a good choice. A Windows based server is more suitable for you if you want an easy-to-use interface.

Uptime:

Uptime refers to the time span for which a server stays connected online. It’s generally rated in percentage. The resources on the server can be accessed from anywhere in the world during the uptime. The time span when the server is not responding in the expected way is the downtime. A web hosting service with a high uptime percentage is a better one.

Bandwidth:

Bandwidth refers to the maximum traffic a server can handle for the website or the web space owned. High bandwidth means more number of people can access the website simultaneously and conveniently with good speed. A website with high traffic and heavy resources is recommended to go for unlimited bandwidth or at least for a good bandwidth.

Disk space:

Disk space is the amount of space you need on the server for keeping your website, database and files on the server. Disk space should be considered always much more than sufficient so as to accommodate the increasing needs of the business.

Server location:

Locating your server in the same country or state where your business operates comes with some benefits.

Search engines like Google find the physical location of your country’s website using the IP address and the domain name. Search engines give more priority to websites that originate from that particular country. If your website is hosted in Canada, you have better chances of ranking in Google.ca.

Customer service and grievance handling:

Customer service has to be a very important consideration before you opt for a choice. A good problem addressing leads to fewer downtimes and more service hours. Online reviews and feedback through existing customers is of great help in this.

BBB rating:

The ratings and certifications from credible organizations like BBB (Better Business Bureau) are helpful in determining the quality of the services of the web host. A+ is the highest rating given by BBB. A web hosting company with A+ BBB rating would be a good choice.

In addition, you should consider the reliability of the service. You can consider schemes like 30 day money back guarantee while going for a web hosting service. This will help you in terminating the services if you are not satisfied with the performance of the host.
