Today we’re going back to basics in understanding VPNs. We’ll unpack just what a VPN is and how it’s implemented. Then we’ll look at how a VPN can give you all the mobility of the Cloud with the full control and security of you own, in-house server and data storage.
What Is a VPN?
VPN means Virtual Private Network and it allows your computer to access your private office network over a public network.

Recently, Advantage Technology surveyed the law firm Kay Casto and Chaney’s Charleston office and upgraded their datacenter.
Every few years, the time comes to upgrade your IT infrastructure. This is actually a great opportunity because it usually leads to server consolidation. Server consolidation reduces the physical footprint of servers, reduces operating costs and energy costs, decreases downtime and improves reliability.
We recently finished a network cleanup for our friends at Dixon Electrical Systems & Contracting, Inc. This nice, compact server rack started out as a table with server, wires and cables, keyboards, mice, monitors, and power strips spread all over the place. Dixon Electrical trusted Advantage Technology turn the mess into a proper server rack.
On September 23rd, we held our September Advantage Lunch at Edgewood Country Club. (If you’re not familiar with the Advantage Lunch, learn about it at advantagelunch.com). The topic this month was “Destroy Downtime on your Network” and I along with systems engineer, Anthony Ross, gave a presentation that has been very well received. In case you didn’t make or just want a refresher, I want to give you a recap of what we discussed.
Server consolidation is a trending movement in IT and for good reason. Server consolidation reduces the physical footprint of servers, reduces operating costs and energy costs, decreases downtime and improves reliability. Rather than operating, managing and powering a variety of physical servers, server consolidation can provide a single point of contact to manage an entire data center.
