As part of the upgrade, Canadian Web Hosting have increased their shared hosting disk I/O (input/output) rate through expanded use of caching through hardware upgrades and new technologies. With this upgrade, each shared hosting server that hosts a website, static pages, web applications, databases or e-commerce store will benefit from faster data rates and end-users will have improved access and much faster load times.

Each flash memory drive includes 256 GB of storage and offers improved SSD read/write caching and is configured in RAID10. In addition, every server utilizes VMware virtualization and includes at least 32GB of RAM and dual Intel E5 Xeon processors that when combined deliver overall performance improvements by as much as 60% when compared to other Canadian-based shared hosting providers.

Grindmaster-Cecilware Upgrades to Newly-Released NOVAtime NT7000 Smart Time Clocks


Diamond Bar, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

NOVAtime Technology, Inc. (http://www.novatime.com), a leading provider of enterprise Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solutions, announced today that Grindmaster-Cecilware has adopted NOVAtimes latest touchscreen time clock, the NT7000, along with the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS system.

A global manufacturer of beverage dispensers and foodservice equipment, Grindmaster-Cecilware has over a century of experience providing the coffee shops, convenience stores, and restaurants of the world with everything from coffee grinders and tea brewers to commercial fryers, ranges, and ovens. The company boasts a rich history of innovation, having introduced the first fully automatic coffee urn in 1963 and the first commercial powdered beverage dispenser in 1994, and it continues this tradition with its recent lines of flavored powder cappuccino machines and digital coffee brewers.

Since 2010, Grindmaster-Cecilware has managed its workforce using the NOVA time 4000 SaaS system, which is a cloud-based solution that enables user-friendly, real-time management of overtime, attendance, leave, and scheduling. For its payroll processing, the company uses ADP, which integrates seamlessly with the NOVAtime 4000 system. As a cloud-based solution, NOVAtime 4000 SaaS provides all the functionality of a traditional licensed solution, but eliminates the IT headaches associated with maintaining licensed software on customer servers.

For the last two years, Grindmaster-Cecilware has used the NOVAtime 4000 SaaS system in conjunction with NT6500 clocks. The NT7000 smart time clocks that the company has chosen to supersede the NT6500 clocks offer many of the same functions, including biometric, proximity badge, HID badge, and key-in punch capabilities. The NT7000 also supports multiple languages (English, Spanish, French, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese) and photo capture of employees upon punch submission.

A 7 inch high resolution color display with touchscreen is the real draw, for many users, of the NT7000. According to Carrie Fletcher, Payroll and Human Resources Manager at Grindmaster-Cecilware, employees appreciate the user-friendly design of the new clock, All employees like NT7000 time clocks optical fingerprint touch pad and the larger screen. The clocks state-of-the-art Lumidigm fingerprint reader ensures that biometric data can be captured in even the most challenging environmental conditions.

With the adoption of the NT7000 smart time clocks, Grindmaster-Cecilware has enjoyed more accurate timekeeping, since all data comes from one reliable sourcethe clocksand not from paper timesheets or, worse yet, employees memories. Ms. Fletcher notes, Supervisors benefit from the ability to monitor employee clock-in times in real-time. Other supervisor capabilities that the clocks offer include employee lockouts, private messaging, and projection of training videos.

Of the services and support that Grindmaster-Cecilware has received from Cincinnati Time Systems (http://cincinnatitime.com/), one of NOVAtimes prestigious Summit Partners, Ms. Fletcher is unequivocal in her enthusiasm, When we have needed technical supportwhich is very rarethe response time has been swift and the support team has been knowledgeable.

NOVAtime is proud to offer cutting-edge technology to Grindmaster-Cecilware. Gil Sidhom, Vice President of Research and Development at NOVAtime, explains, The NT7000 was designed for todays cloud-computing environment, and it meets the demand for heightened security and accuracy that such an environment creates.

Guardian RFID Upgrades to VISIs ReliaCloud Service


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (PRWEB) November 05, 2013

Today, VISI Inc. announced they have signed a three-year contract with Guardian RFID to provide ReliaCloud service. Guardian RFID is the first company in the country to offer inmate management via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) powered by ReliaCloud.

Our original Software-as-a-Service platform, including a hybrid environment with old servers and old systems, was aging, said Brett Wilmeth, vice president of Guardian RFID. We wanted to move from colocation to a fully managed service environment. By selecting VISIs ReliaCloud service, we knew we were upgrading to the most reliable cloud platform available. Now, instead of focusing on our IT, we can concentrate on our business and providing our customers with a higher level of support.

A VISI customer since 2008, Guardian RFID is the flagship platform for Minneapolis-based Codex Corp., which builds and markets its inmate management systems leveraging RFID, mobile, and the Cloud. Guardian RFID is exclusively endorsed by the National Sheriffs Association and works with law enforcement and detention centers coast-to-coast requiring 24/7 access to data and applications that help manage, monitor, and track inmates in custody.

Our customers need instant access to information to more safely and securely manage jail operations, Wilmeth added. Migrating our servers to ReliaCloud takes the pressure off our team and allows them more time to focus on other matters. It also provides an added measure of reassurance for our customers that they will have the access they need.

During the migration to ReliaCloud, VISI worked with Guardian RFID, slowly moving customers to the new managed service platform. According to Wilmeth, the direct, high-speed Internet connectivity between VISIs Minnesota data centers in St. Paul and Eden Prairie meant minimal disruption or impact on customers.

Wilmeth added, The transition was smooth and now, our IT systems are fully managed by VISI. They also fully maintain and monitor our IT infrastructure. And, when we need to add a new server or more RAM, we call VISI and they quickly reconfigure our IT environment.

Guardian RFIDs decision to stay with VISI and move to our ReliaCloud platform says so much about the quality of our employees and products, says Terry Swanson, CEO of VISI. They understand the value in an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model thats reliable, secure and scalable. And, we understand the importance in providing the personalized customer service theyve come to depend on us for.

VISI, a division of TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC (TDS HMS), offers a comprehensive suite of products and services, including: colocation, managed services, hosted services, and cloud computing infrastructure for small- to enterprise-sized businesses throughout the Midwest. Through its sister company, Vital Support Systems, VISI also sells, installs, and manages IT infrastructure solutions from world-class hardware and software vendors such as Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix.
