Any online business owner can relate to the challenge of keeping up with technology. Even in businesses that don’t seemingly have any major link to emerging technologies, there are still benefits that can come from keeping up with consumer and industrial electronics. Many of the latest tech innovations are based on technologies that can scale to different industries, so there’s always some insight to be gained from the latest trends.
The Consumer Electronics Show is arguably the most important tech show of the year, as it reveals innovations that can be game-changing for both businesses and consumers. These are five of the most exciting technologies that have been revealed over the last month at CES and private industry events.
Alexa Voice Commands in-car with Muse
Muse is a new device developed by Speak Music. It’s a simple accessory no larger than an Oreo cookie, which will integrate with a car audio system and provide Amazon Alexa voice functionality. Users can change the music that they’re playing, interact with their schedule, and perform other functions that are available on the Alexa platform.
While an interesting device for consumers, it’s also noteworthy for business owners. It shows how natural language search and voice search will become more important in the coming years, as more consumers gain access to voice control devices. This will change the way that business owners and webmasters approach to search engine optimization and content marketing. Continue reading Three Consumer Tech Innovations of 2018
VPS hosting is the latest addition to our product lineup, offering an excellent alternative for anyone that needs a light, moderate or even intensive traffic solution.
Reliable hosting solutions should be affordable for businesses that want to establish an online presence and remain competitive. At HostRound, we’ve invested heavily in new technologies and infrastructure that allow us to offer affordable hosting packages that free you from storage, speed, and feature constraints.
Why Choose a VPS Hosting Solution?
VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting allows for a virtually isolated machine that can be accessed and configured as if it were a standalone resource. HostRound makes the VPS even more attractive by using Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) infrastructure. The benefit of this technology is that KVM provides real virtualization where allocated resources are not shared between different virtual servers on the same hardware (Server). The result is faster and more reliable performance, without slowdowns that can be caused by overprovisioning. VPS provides full control over your hosting environment with root access and much more power than shared hosting, so you can install any software you want and host projects of any size.
Intel Xeon Processing Power with Kernel-Based Virtualization
Processing power matters with any server hosting solution, and at HostRound we use some of the most powerful Intel Xeon server processors to provide you with maximum speed and efficiency.
Intel’s E5 server CPU’s are utilized, with the E5-1650 v4 being the most commonly found in HostRound’s servers. These CPU’s are built on 14nm technology which improves efficiency without sacrificing performance. 6 cores / 12 threads, 15MB of SmartCache and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.0GHz per core makes these CPU’s perfect for a virtual private server environment.
