Supply of Server Hardware Components and Data Centers

Fraiteg company has well-established links with various suppliers and delivers server hardware leading brands such as HP, IBM, Supermicro, Cisco, Intel, Dell and others to make orders to contact the manager. Experienced staff of our company will create an order , select the vehicle best suits your needs. Besides, a full escort services collocation ( colocation data centers in Germany, the UK, Russia, Finland and other countries). If you are interested in building a reliable not leased, and its own fleet of servers, Fraiteg is your ideal choice.

To manage the corporate network and to safeguard the information are some of the basic functions that a server gives us to our company, so that when it becomes obsolete it has to consider the acquisition of a new one. In this case, we focus on the advantages that the proper configuration and supply of hardware can bring to your business.

Configuring and supplying Hardware for your business

The maximum security in our computer equipment is achieved by each and every one of its components, which will make the availability of the service higher. Next to the latter, other functions to consider for our servers are the speed of the process and accessibility to the data, the sufficient storage capacity, as well as the possibilities of extending that capacity in the future, especially if We consider that today gigabytes of emails, software and documents are experiencing considerable growth.

Configuring and supplying hardware for servers

By focusing our attention on the hardware, the most common redundant systems are, for example, power, fans, network and processor, as well as the hard disks configured in RAID. They repeat the most critical data, which is intended to ensure against possible failures arising from its continued use.

In order to support all our data, it is most convenient to have a backup system, being able to use from a hard drive with USB or Ethernet connection to the conventional Lto tapes of 100 or 200 GB or even the data of 72 GB.

Hardware Supply

For the supply of hardware, configuration and assembly of servers, it is best to have a company specializing in the field of computer maintenance, which can offer a quality service to the company.

In the case of hardware configuration, three fundamental factors must be taken into account in order for this operation to take place in the correct way. Among other things, the processing capacity required by the implementation, the required delivery performance, and the place where the instance is being deployed.

The vast majority of large or medium-sized applications benefit from multi-server configurations. In the event that such applications are particularly large, it is possible to distribute them on multiple servers. Those that require very high availability can always use the fail-over cluster.

Supply of Hardware for companies

By means of the configuration concept we refer to the set of data that determine the value of some of the variables of a given program. Such options are loaded from the beginning and in some cases should be restarted to see the changes, since the program will not be able to modify them while it is running.

For example, for companies that cannot make big investments, you can opt for a basic type of hardware configuration from, for example, a 4-core Intel Xeon processor X3430, 4GB RAM, and two 500 GB hard disks. Together with all these elements, the basic configuration of hardware, which does not have the redundancy of some components such as the network card or power supply, will be useful to have continuity to any problem that may arise in our Business.

Powerful, reliable server hardware

In any case, when choosing a powerful and reliable hardware for the server you have to look for a balance between the needs of your business and its investment capacity.

In Fraiteg we supply all kinds of hardware for companies. Thanks to the alliances with our suppliers we offer competitive prices, others more special by volume, configuration and assembly of servers and storage, as well as qualified technicians in different manufacturers. For any questions, call us and we will inform you about it.

Redundant Computer Systems

In this article we will see an introduction of different techniques that are used for computer systems are available and can be accessed even when some part of the system fails.

When you have critical systems that have to be available and running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, try to minimize failures that may affect the normal operation of the system. Failures are going to happen, but there are techniques and configurations that help to have redundant systems, in which certain parts can fail without this affecting the operation of the same one.

In a current computer system, there are many components necessary for this to work, the more components, the more likely we have that something fails. These problems can occur in the server itself, disk failures, power supplies, network cards, etc and in the infrastructure necessary for the server to be used, network components, Internet access, electrical system,….

To continuation we will go commenting some of the techniques used to obtain redundant systems. The degree of redundancy of a system will depend on its importance and the money we lose when the system is not available for a failure. It is not worth investing in ‘ redundancy ‘, if the investment needed to have a redundant system costs more than you lose in money, reputation and hours of work, if the system failed.

The techniques and configurations we talk about below are not unique to Linux systems. They can be applied in their vast majority to other operating systems and platforms.

Server Component Redundancy

The most normal redundant components on a server are usually disks, network cards and power supplies. There are servers with multiple CPUs that even continue to work without problems with any CPU or memory module damaged.

Disks

Hard disks are the devices where the data is recorded. The most common fault on a server is the failure of a hard drive. If the server has a disk and this fails, the server fails to complete and we will not be able to access the data contained in it. There are techniques that help us to minimize this problem and that the server continues to work and does not lose data even when a hard disk fails. The most normal also, is that you can replace the disks that fail without having to turn off the server (HOTSWAP).

The most common technique is the call RAID (redundant array of independent disks) [Spanish | English]. With this technique we create a set of redundant disks that can help us, both to increase the speed and performance of the storage system, and to keep the system running even if some disk fails. There are software and hardware implementations and different RAID configurations, the most common being RAID1, RAID5 and RAID10.

Network cards

The network card is the device that allows the server to communicate with the rest of the world. It is therefore very common that the servers have at least 2 network cards, to ensure that this communication is not cut in case of failure of one of the cards.

In Linux there is also a technique called ‘ bonding ‘, by which we can use 2 or more network cards as if they were a single device, adding the capacities of them and having redundancy in the case that any of the cards fails.

Sources of food

The power supply is in charge of supplying electricity to the server. It is also common that the servers have 2 or more sources of power connected to different electrical systems, to guarantee the supply in the case that one of the sources or one of the electrical systems fail. The most common thing is that you can replace the power sources that fail without having to turn off the server (HotSwap). Other system components such as routers, switches, disc cabinets, etc. usually use the same redundancy technique.
Redundancy in electrical supply

Every electrical component, and a server could not be less, needs a constant supply of electricity to operate. Failures in this supply, even for very short periods of time, will have catastrofales consequences for our system. And not only do we need a constant supply, we also need not to have ups and downs brusquedas that can damage electronic components.

To achieve this you can use different components according to the degree of protection we want.

UPS: These are more or less advanced batteries that connect between the server and the power supply. They guarantee a constant and stable supply for a while, depending on the capacity of the same.
Electric generators: They are generally operated with diesel and are connected between the UPS and the electrical supply network. They only come into operation when the supply is cut for more than a certain time. They can supply electricity for an indefinite time as long as they have fuel in the tank.
Independent supply lines: in large data centers, there are usually at least 2 separate and independent connections to the power supply network.

If we want redundancy in the electrical system, needless to say that not only the servers have to have double connections, routers, switches and ultimately any component of the system that uses electricity should have sources of power Redundant (connected). As they say, your system will only be as safe, stable and redundant as the weakest component of it. It is not the first time, for example, that in a data center, groups of servers with redundancy at all levels have been left incommunicado because they were connected to a switch that has failed to have a redundant system of electrical supply.

Redundancy in network components

It is no use having servers with duplicate and redundant components and a constant electrical supply and equilibrarado if some of the components of the network fail and we cannot access the server.

The most normal components in a network are:

  • Routers — is a device that interconnects network segments or entire networks
  • Switch — is a device that interconnects two or more network segments
  • NIC or network card: an electronic device that allows a DTE (Data Terminal Equipment), computer or printer, to access a network and share resources
  • Network Cables: To interconnect the different components, there are many and varied types, the most common being the twisted pair cable and the optical fiber
  • Connection lines: To wide area network, WAN (e.g. Internet)

Any of these components may fail, leaving the system incommunicado. But there are techniques to prevent this from happening, what is usually done is to configure the network, so that there are at least 2 different paths between two components A and B. In the following graph you have a schema, in which you can see how to configure a network with double redundancy from the server to the Internet. This way you can damage a router, a switch and a network card at the same time without losing connectivity. The same scheme could be extended to have triple or quadruple redundancy of the components.

Server redundancy, load balancing

What happens if the power supply works and the network works, but our server fails in such a way that none of the redundant components that it has can avoid the failure and the fall of it. There are different types of configurations with multiple servers that can help us with this problem. are called clusters, there are different types, but among the most usales is the balancing of loads with fault tolerance. In this type of clusters, not only does it not matter that one or several of the servers stop working, but if we need more resources to provide a service, we can incorporate new servers that increase the process capacity of the cluster.

The most important components of this type of clusters are, the single storage systems between all the servers that provide a service and the load balancing device, which can be a specific hardware for this work or implementable by Software on a normal server. The most important Linux project on this topic is the so-called Linux virtual Server (LVS).

Below you have a number of examples of how these clusters can be organized, where the failure of a server, not for the operation of a service. When one or more servers fail in the cluster, the process capacity is reduced, so it is important to always have some unused capacity so that in the event of a failure the response time is not reduced much.

An example of a cluster with load balance connected to a disk array to store the information. Typical use for file and Web servers.

Who will control company lawyers?

The text of the draft law on services and professional schools, whose referral to the Council of Ministers for the time being left for after the summer, is not yet closed, according to sources of the Ministry of Economy. However, the General Council of the Spanish Legal profession (CGAE) does not hereby waive its disagreement with the last known version, dated July 7, and that the department that directs Luis de Guindos does not recognize as an officer.

The apple of discord is the measure by which lawyers who have a working relationship with their client, the so-called business attorneys, will be excluded from compulsory association. “In this way, certain guarantees offered by the compulsory association, like the control or the ordination of the profession, would be in Frank regression”, argues the spokesman of the CGAE, Lucas Blanche. “When they become business consultants and are not collegiate, these professionals will cease to have a code of ethics and will be governed by the law of the market and by the power of their client, the entrepreneur, in its full extent,” he explains.

Sources of the Ministry of Economy confirm that this measure will surely be included in the final text, and allege that the company itself already monitors the actions of its lawyers, which makes the association unnecessary, because in the case that the lawyer commits a Mistake, it will be the same company who sanctions you.

According to Blanche, the government wants to adapt Spanish legislation to the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Community, and especially to the AZKO judgment. In it, the European magistrates established that, in the face of the actions of the competition authorities, the company lawyers cannot wield the professional secrecy in the same way as if they did not have a company as a client, he says. “It is a sentence that has been dictated in a very specific area, the right of competition,” he says; Too concrete to extrapolate a general rule. “We will follow the example of France, which is the only country in the EU Member States where corporate lawyers should not be collegiate. It does not seem to us the most advisable way,” he adds.

Another aspect of the preliminary draft on which attention – and some hostility – has been noted by the Agency of maximum representation of the legal profession has been the possible unification of the system of access to the professions of lawyers and solicitors. “While the economy seems to be betting on compatible professions, the Ministry of Justice, through its draft reform of the Civil Procedure Act, tends to limit this compatibility,” says Blanche. However, this “tension” between departments of the same executive – “That does not benefit the professions”, in his words-does not exist, according to sources of economy. In fact, the issue would have already been resolved by leaving the separation between the functions of the lawyer and the procurator unchanged. The same sources also contradict the possibility of social graduates acting as Labour lawyers.

“It is true that this does not appear in the preliminary draft explicitly,” concedes Blanche. “But it could be deduced from the reading of two paragraphs of an additional provision of future regulation. If so, we understand that a necessary minimum would be that social graduates also have a system of access to the profession. ”

Although there is no evidence that the Council of Ministers can approve in the short term this preliminary draft, which started a year ago, the CGAE does not lower its guard. “I believe that the law has very acceptable aspects, like the first part, about professional services”, admits Blanche. “What we do not share we have discussed with everyone and continue to do so: until it is published in the BOE, you have to try everything,” he concludes.

Corporate Identity and Design

The main direction of LLC “Fraiteg” – production of software, information systems and sites that require constant work of designers, marketers, artists and coders.

At present the following services in the field of design:

  • corporate identity
  • logo creation
  • naming services
  • infographics
  • development of interfaces
  • design-site templates

The possibility of implementing other services in the field of design please call or e-mail.

The graphic design of corporate identity refers to the visual representation of a brand with which users will be able to recognize it and differentiate it on the competition. This concept is often mistaken for corporate image design or a company, but they are not entirely the same.

The first term refers to the visual and verbal language with which the brand values are to be shared, while the second refers to the conceptual meaning for society and how it perceives a certain business.

Therefore, graphic design of corporate image and corporate identity are not the same. It is the latter, the service that is in charge of the logos, business cards, personalized stationery, thank you cards, as well as all the necessary material for the commercialization of the brand.

Fraiteg offers logos and corporate image design services for all types of businesses, with the aim of improving reputation and generating a great impact on users.

Corporate image design on business cards

In addition to the logo or the corporate manual, one of the elements of identity that is usually designed for a company is the business card. This is an element that the public and other users (suppliers, partners, etc.) quickly associate and facilitates the contact.

Therefore, when developing the graphic design of image and corporate identity of a company, we will think of these cards as one of the priority products. In addition to achieving a professional and creative finish, you must convey the brand message through an in-line tone with the business philosophy.

In Fraitegwe work with all kinds of materials and styles so that the business cards transmit, through the design of corporate image and visual identity, a coherent and professional message.

Corporate Identity Manual Design

Thanks to working on graphic design in corporate identity, we can generate a good impression among the users and make customers or potential customers easily recognize any brand.

It should be taken into account that, in addition, a good manual is one that includes exhaustive information on how to represent a logo according to the colors and typography in accordance with the corporate image.

In Fraiteg we know all the techniques to represent logos in different media, so we develop the corporate identity Manual of your company with great detail.
Other elements of Visual identity design

Establishing trust and authority is essential if a company wants to stand out on the competition and remain in the memory of the users. The correct graphic representation of the brand is essential to achieve this objective and reinforce the image, which is achieved thanks to the creation of envelopes, stationery, thank you cards, etc.

Our personalized stationery products are created based on the logo design and corporate image of each company or business in question. With a clean and simple style, we communicate the philosophy of your business through customized or customized products.

If you want to solve doubts about the design of your corporate identity (prices, timing, elements, etc.), do not hesitate to consult us.

The service we offer at Fraiteg, adapts to the needs of each project, as we work closely with our clients throughout the creative process to know in depth all brand values.

To attract customers, capture their attention, and build a strong brand reputation, enhancing graphic design in corporate image is fundamental.

Software Development

LTD “Fraiteg” has a great positive experience in the development of both conventional and large cloud cross-platform client-server software.

Supported operating systems: Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android, iOS, SmartTV.

Supported devices: any computer and mobile devices, TVs, could be considered the possibility of writing programs for other devices.

To develop a software means to build it simply by its description. This is a very good reason to consider software development activity as an engineering. On a more general level, the relationship between a software and its environment is clear because the software is introduced in the world so as to provoke certain effects on it.

Those parts of the world that will affect the software and be affected by it will be the application domain. This is where users or customers will see if the software development has fulfilled its purpose.

One of the biggest shortcomings in the practice of software construction is the little attention that is given to the discussion of the problem. In general the developers focus on the solution leaving the problem unexplored. The problem to be solved must be deduced from its solution.

This solution-oriented approach can work in fields where all problems are well known, classified and investigated, where innovation is seen in the detection of new solutions to old problems.

But software development is not a field with such characteristics. The versatility of computers and their rapid evolution means that there is a repertoire of problems that are constantly changing and whose software solution is of great importance.

Software Development

When you develop a software involved many people as it is the client who is the one who has the problem in your company and want it to be solved, for this there is the system analyst who is in charge of getting all the requirements and Needs that the client has to the programmers who are the people in charge of carrying out the coding and design of the system and then testing it and installing it to the client. This is how several people intervene as a single person could not determine all the necessary as sure as you need some requirement or some part of the new system and the more are involved better to cover all the requirements of system.

Process

The software development process is shown graphically at the top, then a brief explanation of it will be developed.

The first step of the process is the analysis, this is where the analyst gets in touch with the company to see how this conformed, which is dedicated, know all the activities it does in itself, know the company in a general way to later see what their needs Needs or requirements that the company has at that time in order to perform an analysis of it.

It is important to know what are the requirements that the company has because many times the systems are developed but not thinking about the client and that is where the system does not meet or does not meet the needs that exist in the company, according to the requirements Start to make the relational diagram all must have a logical sequence of activities, all this is done manually to see how it will be its logical design and screen design is in this step where it is plasma everything and is perfectly defined as It’s going to do the system functionality.

The second step is the design here enter the whole system design ie the screens, database, all this must comply with certain standards which are taken into account to develop the design with quality and thus be able to offer a friendly design in cues Tión, button sizes, text boxes, etc.

The third step is the coding is here where you develop all the system code by the programmer this is done and depending on each programmer and that each programmer has its bases or ways to do it but if they must all reach the same goal of Provide functionality to the system as long as it adheres to the customer’s specifications.

The fourth step is the evidence, is where the system is tested as its word says so you can know what are the possible errors that are being generated from the system and thereby improve it to eliminate all errors that can be presented by a program co No less mistakes higher quality can get to have.

Fraiteg have become a key element in achieving business objectives. But not all organizations know which it resources are the most appropriate, or how to integrate them into their infrastructure. Having the advice of computer support specialists allows you to deploy IT management strategies and services that increase the competitiveness of your business.

Today, both technology and the market are subject to continuous changes that directly impact business strategies. There is an uninterrupted feedback between the two environments that is very difficult to materialize in optimal decisions if you don’t have the right knowledge.
IT as a service: technology as a service

In this new scenario, traditional technology systems and their deployment and maintenance strategies have become obsolete. But moving from an old to a modern environment has a cost and a risk that slows the digital transformation of many companies that do not have payroll specialists trained to deal with it.

The outsourcing of IT services, understood as the adoption of technology as a service, it as a service, leaves in the hands of professional experts the updating and integral maintenance of the technological infrastructure. This means eliminating the cost of having an internal IT team and ‘renting’ only the necessary IT services.

Custom Managed Services

Fraiteg managed services are not limited to providing comprehensive maintenance of it architecture, by remote it monitoring or in-person support (depending on the mode you choose). They also offer corrective and evolutionary maintenance. In other words, its professionals have the capacity to advise on how to update or replace it if it is the case to maximize it.

Traditional systems are usually configured with rigid proprietary technologies and their maintenance carries a high investment in time and human resources.

Through IT outsourcing you access custom managed services to update infrastructures that are no longer effective by benefiting from the know-how of professional IT experts in the most innovative technology.

With your advice it will be easier to deploy IT resources aligned with new business requirements that demand flexibility, speed, agility and profitability.

Strategic decisions to design and implement profitable IT infrastructures

1. Process automation

Investing in IT solutions should focus on automating business and IT management processes. Deleting manual tasks is key to not only saving human resources and reducing errors, but also to provide them with greater agility and speed. In this way, companies are able to respond as soon as possible to the demands of the market and to the needs of the business.

2. Towards integral corporate protection

The level of sophistication of the cyber-threats is so high nowadays that it is impossible to guarantee the business security by implementing solutions that only focus on specific aspects. Companies are not fully protected by deploying products in isolation. It is necessary to design and implement a comprehensive corporate cybersecurity plan that allows visibility 360 º of what happens globally and in detail in each resource, from systems to networks, workstations, mobile devices, etc. We must correlate events to prevent and discover cyber, acting in the case with a holistic approach.

3. The Software makes the difference

The weight of the SW in the data center is becoming more and more. He has always been the ‘director’ who has given life to the electronics pieces of each of the resources, but now he has life even out of his reference Hardware. The HW has become, to some extent, a commodity, the difference is in the software.

The concept ‘ software Defined ‘ associated with multiple resources means that with a single SW it is possible to manage the various pieces of the data center in an integral way. Thus the Defined storage Software allows to use a single SW to manage all the existing storage is of the type that it is; The Fraiteg products do the same but refer to all the IT deployed networks, etc. Opting for Software Defined Everything streamlines IT management and reduces procurement in HW.

4. Simplicity in hybrid environments

The maxim when implementing an IT architecture is that it is flexible. Flexibility is the best antidote against it complexity that prevents you from always being ready to adapt to changes that are necessary for the good of the business. This is why it is essential to bet on open technologies that facilitate the integration of all types of systems, both physical and cloud.

Companies need to deploy easy-to-manage hybrid IT infrastructures that automatically define load distributions to always achieve the best performance. Back to point 1: Automation is essential to optimize and monetize IT resources.

Fraiteg Consulting Group is a company specialized in designing and implementing IT architecture solutions for SMEs and companies in Madrid, and the rest of Spain.

Key Points For Optimizing Networks And IT Communications

There is much talk of the data, of its exponential growth in the current digital society, of how important it is to be able to manage them effectively to discover new business opportunities… but too often you forget the importance of the network in everything It. In today’s article we will give some guidelines on how to optimize networks and IT communications. Next, we review some key aspects of upgrading the network and communications infrastructure — something to consider mandatory when implementing a data-centric it architecture.

To take advantage of the latest innovations in technology it is necessary to carry out an audit of the networks and communications existing in the company. Connectivity is a word that always accompanies the term digital transformation and to be able to optimize networks will be a point to be taken into account. It is clear why, because nowadays everything is connected. And in a company the heart of all this is the data center.

In the CPD is where the information that feeds the business processes comes in and out. The incorporation of business mobility and mobile devices into the working environment, the increase in the use of cloud computing solutions and the incipient development of the Internet of things, draws a scenario in which the needs Network have been growing to be able to transmit more and more data and heavier.

This is linked that within the data center it is also necessary to respond to aspects such as virtualization of servers and other assets that generate continuous traffic and therefore high network and communications requirements.

Software Defined Network SDN

Many companies have been dealing with all these changes by adding different layers that hinder the management of the entire network infrastructure. Each deployment requires particular attention and there is no unified control of the network itself. This situation, apart from generating high maintenance costs, is very risky because it generates a highly vulnerable environment to cyber.

What is clear is that 21st century technology cannot sustain itself in twentieth-century networks. The network has to become a priority asset in defining a modern technology solutions architecture.

In this sense, the solutions SDN Software Defined Network are a highly recommended antidote against the complexity in the networks because they allow to manage them centrally from a single interface. This can be done in an automated way without human intervention, after a configuration and previous programming that considers the different uses of the resources (both physical and in the cloud) and defines rules of action in different scenarios.

Proactive monitoring of the elements to optimize networks

Proactive monitoring of network elements and lines of communication is a compulsory subject for companies. This is the only way to detect gaps and connection failures that impact the quality of services and business applications.

Management efforts to optimize networks should lead to increasing bandwidth and reducing latency. Those are the two main challenges to achieve. That is to say that the network is capable of transmitting more data and, more and more quickly. And this is worth both to communicate systems to each other and for business users to access in real time the applications and data they need.

Technologically, it involves checking from the Internet access speeds to the port capacities of the different devices, adapting to new standards of WLAN (Wireless Local area Network) or the status of Wi-Fi deployments, for example, to have Our goal of optimizing networks achieved.
It Managed Services: a single technology partner

All the tasks that have been pointed out are inescapable for the companies, but to maintain a dedicated team for it can suppose an excessive cost that it ballasts other purely business investments. The outsourcing of these functions to a company offering on-site assistance and Remote Assistance frees the internal staff from those responsibilities. The proposal is clear: to have a single it partner that takes care of everything from managing Internet access to the corporate provider to managing the day-to-day network and recommending improvements to maximize the performance of IT resources.

A Computer For Each Trade

Having a computer today is not a luxury but a necessity. Therefore when buying it must be very clear what work is going to be done with it. It is often found in the offices or in the Colombian households underutilized Super machines or slow computers dedicated to works of great skill. and is that the computer user almost never identifies their needs before going to the store and buy a device.

Although the computer may be the same for many trades, it is necessary to take into account what programs will be emphasized (accounting, text, graphics, image processing, etc.) You should also know that some computers have the ability to grow in features: More RAM, adapting a modem to send long-distance information to another user, sound card, external hard drives and many more possibilities.

It is very important that if you are hesitant when you are purchasing a team, you will be informed of whether you will be able to increase your performance when necessary. If for any circumstance your activity changes, the computer may not meet the requirements and have to buy another.

Those who have to do with texts and letters, such as students, translators, writers, screenwriters, journalists or lawyers, can opt for a personal computer, with a 14-inch-size screen, in black and white or in color. In addition, with 4 Megas of RAM memory will be enough, although most manufacturers are launching their basic models with 8 megs. The capacity of the hard drive will be the least, with about 80 megs, because the documents will not take up much space and you will always have the possibility to save the old works on a floppy disk.

For researchers there are professionals like mathematicians, engineers, architects, chemists, etc., whose work does not require personal computers, because they do not come to meet the requirements that their daily work requests, but they need what is called Workstations, due to the heavy operations they need to perform with them and the amount of information or data they need to store and process.

It is best to have each professional advise an expert before choosing a computer station.

For travelers what is fashionable in computer matters are laptops. There are people who need a laptop, because their activity leads them to travel frequently and they need to keep it close. Vendors, executives, regional business representatives are some of the professionals who use this type of machines.

Portable computers are effective, versatile and autonomous (their batteries can last about four hours). Its only drawback is the size of the screen (10.5 inches maximum), which can make the view fatigue after many hours before the computer.

All manufacturers incorporate a RAM memory between 4 and 8 megs and a data storage capacity from 125 to 510 Megas.

For people of Science This group is formed by managers, accountants, economists or consultants. They will have to determine very carefully what their type of activity is in the computer, because depending on the volume of data they manage and the complexity of the operations to be carried out they will need a model with the characteristics of the first group of professionals or, if the Task to perform requires a lot of power, you’ll need more speed and more memory capacity on your new computer.

The secret of speed will be found on the Pentium processor or the Power PC. The power will depend on the number of Megas of RAM memory.

For illustrative artists, architects, video operators or advertisers will require larger screens, which reproduce the image and color as faithfully as possible. Not only does it require speed, power, and data storage capacity because, for example, an image editor may need, for 15 minutes of tape, 1,500 megs of hard disk memory.

Main programs If you only buy the computer, it will be like having a TV without image. It is necessary to acquire the programs that will give the functionality to the team.

Today, the main supplier is the multinational Microsoft, which sells the following programs:-for Management, Windows NT, and office packages composed by Word 6.0 (text processor); Access 2.0 (database); Excel 5.0 (worksheet); Schedulo + Plus (datebook) and Power Point (to make graphics).

Practical tips * Before you buy a computer, know exactly what you are going to use it for.

* Do not be tempted by the offers. The superoffers sometimes offer old models. Pay attention to the final prices.

* In the market there are clone computers (imitations of equipment from other brands known or made from loose parts), much cheaper, but not always highly recommended. Sometimes, yes. Beware of after-sales service.

* Buy in a store or dealer that is serious.

* Request the invoice with VAT, which will serve as collateral.

* Visit more than one store.

To take into account the Windows 95 is not a program but an operating system, with which you can easily learn the use of the previous programs. This system is very similar to that used by Apple.

In the Apple Macintosh environment are the programs used by illustrators, advertisers, and in general, by all the professionals of the publishing world, such as: Page Maker, Free Hand, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe PhotoShop and QuarkXPress.
