Server-side and client-side scripting: the differences

Client-side scripting vs. server-side scripting: a comparison

Scripting languages play a vital role in developing web projects with dynamic elements. Scripts are a fundamental component for breathing life into static HTML, using movement and interactive elements. This can be executed and interpreted from either the web server (i.e. server-side script) or from the browser (client-side script). But what exactly are the differences between server-side scripting...

Hyper-converged systems: More order in IT?

Hyper-converged systems: The compact data center

The traditional data center could be significantly streamlined by migrating to a hyper-converged system. By eliminating the need for highly complex infrastructures and multiple work areas, the company’s IT department could function more efficiently, dynamically, and cost-effectively. This is made possible using preconfigured standard hardware and a complete virtualisation of the IT infrastructure....

Fog computing

Fog computing: decentralised approach for IoT clouds

Traditionally, cloud solutions are designed for central data processing. IoT devices generate data, send it to a central computing platform in the cloud, and await a response. However, with large-scale cloud architectures, such a system inevitably leads to bandwidth problems. For future projects such as connected cities and smart manufacturing, classic cloud computing is a hindrance to growth. The...

Edge computing

Edge Computing – Calculating at the edge of the network

Autonomous cars, intelligent factories and self-regulating supply networks – a dream world for large-scale data-driven projects that will make our lives easier. However, what the cloud model is and how it works is not enough to make these dreams a reality. The challenge of effectively capturing, evaluating and storing mass data requires new data processing concepts. With edge computing, IT...

What is a DDNS (dynamic DNS)?

Dynamic DNS (DynDNS): making remote control easier

Being able to access your home computer from another location is no longer a complicated matter thanks to remote connection. It is handy to be able to use your computer from the office and swap files. But IP addresses change often and this throws a spanner in the works. DynDNS (DDNS) services are the solution. In this article, we explain what these are and how you can access your computer via the...
