This quote made the team at Zebra IT smile and, along with a recent article in PC World, got them thinking about some technologies that are mostly outdated and could be costing you and your business money.

On-site Backup Hardware: gone are the days of carrying out backups and file restores using tapes.

You can now lose the tape drive and associated headaches, by keeping your business data secure with online backup services, for example.

Obsolete Software: if you can't open documents sent by your customers, it could be because they are using a much newer version of the same software.

Many businesses are unaware that vendor support is often withdrawn after a product reaches a certain age, this is called the software life-cycle and can affect performance.

File Servers: in times gone by offices would rely on file servers for sharing documents across the network and running out of space was always a problem.

Now a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device allows more hard disk storage space to be added to a network that already utilizes servers, without shutting them down for maintenance and upgrades.

Put simply, the server still handles all of the processing of data but a NAS device delivers the data to the user.
