One of the key elements of investing in an industrial PC is firstly understanding its difference from a commercial PC we use on a daily basis. With a commercial PC changing on a regular basis requiring to always update drivers and other components, this is not ideal in an industrial setting. Costing and the fear of crashes/failure will only cost you more and investing in a back up PC to deploy when the main one crashes, is not feasible for many and not really wise. All these concerns can be eliminated if buyers decide to gain the benefits of truly industrial PCs. Computers that have been hardened to withstand the temperatures and vibration of harsh industrial operations will typically run far longer without failures, and it’s easier to upgrade them to gain the benefits of technological advancements.

So if you do work in large and industrial companies that hold a lot of value with the data and storage they use, then don’t compromise the quality of the system you pick. Really invest in something that will bring you benefits and great ROI instead of losing money thinking you are saving. Pondesk have well-tested systems that are designed for todays demanding industrial needs & will drastically reduce failures as we mentioned. So click here and invest for future outcomes, think ahead, Pondesk are your solution listening to you and your needs

Bigger Server, Bigger Potential & Higher Security Levels

Our biggest server yet is the Next-Generation Firewall NGFW 8 LAN SFP 1U Rackmount Server. With the obvious 8 LAN this server can take upto 5200 computers and still maintain strong security levels through encrypting and decrypting. With a server being a central part of a computer network, it’s crucial that clients understand how tight the security gateway has to be but also the effeciency of the system needs to meet the business needs for speed and storage.

Some of the great features of the product have been illustrated below to give you more of an insight of the features and what they look like. Built by Pondesk using Intel i3 processor you are most certainly in good hands of reciving a highly constructed model that does exactly what it says

NSHO-001-6

You can add multiple LAN’s or multiple WLAN’s to your network, each segmented for maximum security and configurability. Support up to 16GB SODIMM DDR3L memory and four storage drives including 1 x mSATA SSD drive and 3 x 2.5inch SATA SSD/HDD. 1U rackmount metal chassis makes it perfect and provide stable performance.

What is AMT technology and how do we Incorporate it?

Produced by Intel the Active Management Technology has been made to save time and effort with remote maintenance. Using integrated platform capabilities including popular third-party management and security applications IT & MSPs have the control and flexibility to better discover, repair, and help protect their networked computing assets. Through wireless managability they can access an entire network of PCs and maintain their flow if and when required. This is a great new addition because as computing evolves from business offices to remote environments, more devices need maintence and focus.

Which firewall software do you use? Compatibility issues? not with us!

Have you had software compatibility issues causing you to upgrade or purchase something different in order to use a particular hardware.Well with Pondesk systems you won’t encounter those issues because we understand the difficulty with many systems on the market and believe that a client shouldn’t have to change their firewall choice to use a certain hardware

MNHO-048-7

Some of the popular firewalls currently on the market are open source firewalls like pfsense. This is a piece of software which like any other firewall stands as a gateway to allow or to discard information through its walls depending on the rules set by the owner. . At the simplest form of it, a perimeter security device provides protection for trusted devices (internal devices) against entrusted devices (external devices such as those on the Internet.

The base software supports a lot of features including:

  • Static/default/dynamic routing
  • Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
  • Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
  • Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Load balancing and so on

(We install free version of firewalls as per customer request, for licensing please contact the vender)

Our most popular models that support all the above are:

We don’t compromise with our quality whether you have a commercial firewall or its open source, we still provide the same high-end systems making it easier and also cost-effective for you and your business. On the other hand all our systems are compatible with Windows and Linux

Revolution of 3G/4G LTE networks in a PC, Is this the next generation?

We live in a world where mobile phones have taken over everything we do and the way we communicate, all with the use of 3G/4G wireless mobile telecommunications technology, allowing you to have access whenever and wherever but what would it mean if we can now have the same inside a PC?

We all know that data networks vary when it comes to internet speeds so what are the differences and the benefits that allow them to be integrated in PCs. 3G was introduced in 2003 in the U.S with 4G following after a decade in 2013. So by now everyone should have 4G coverage unless an area you live in has not gained that privledge yet, So even if you have 3G it’s perfect if your phone is mostly for voice use, you have no need for 4G data. Save money and save battery life by choosing a device without the high-speed network.

On the other hand moving from a 3G/4G to 4G LTE delivers the best performance and speeds available today. If you use a lot of data each month or rely on your smartphone or tablet to browse the Internet, 4G LTE is usually the best choice. So you can imagine the outcome in a PC. 4G LTE is about ten times faster than the older 3G technology, so the difference in speed is often quite noticeable when users switch from 3G to 4G LTE. However these will really drain battery due to the radio’s search for a non-existent signal but complete opposite to having the same set up in a PC

MNHO-048-7

  1. you now have a Mini PC portable and travel friendly
  2. able to access the internet if no wi-fi is available
  3. no battery drainage
  4. Full firewall coverage, no cyber security issues
  5. Higher download & loading speeds which increase when connected to a desktop set up
  6. High speed 150Mbps for lag-free video, music & multimedia streaming 

The best-selling Mini PC from Pondesk is changing the game of how we can access the internet and also the way we work, which will become more flexible and convenient to suit our needs

The Benefits Of Intel Atom E3845

Surrounded by so much technology and its ever-growing upgrades, do we actually know and understand the benefits and what is right for us and our business use?

As IT specialists we know that a processor is one of the main components of any system and who better than Intel. This microprocessor giant launched this great component known as the Quad-Core Intel Atom E3845in 2013. With 1.91GHz this also comes with AES-NI for secure and fast data encryption and decryption used by cryptographic applications. The E3845 has been built with a quad-core of 4, which was made to be faster and more effective for businesses with a larger network, but also allowing a smooth workflow regardless of workload.

MNHO-048-new

Having 4 cores in a processor really allows businesses to be able to work on multiple applications/problems at the same time allowing us to get more done. As a business we need to understand the work load we do during our daily tasks and what will make things more cost-effective, plus giving us the freedom to do more at the same time. So if you simultaneously work across emails, marketing, researching IoT and skyping conference calls, the E3845 really fits the mark.

Another benefit of AES-NI is when implementing intensive sub-steps of the AES algorithm into the hardware, Intel Atom strengthens and accelerates execution of the AES application. The Intel Atom has been put together with a great piece of hardware by pondesk which implements just that and has some exceptional features never seen before in any system of its kind, making it unique and efficient for any small/large business

Do let us know your feedback in the comments below, we would love to know your experience with the Intel Atom E3845 and how it works for you and your business needs
