Enterprises offered new tool to restart remote devices

Czech this out - HW's Ping Restarter

A Czech company has come out with a new device aimed at companies running webs servers concerned about connectivity.

Prague-based HW Group has launched what it calls a Ping restarter designed for checking that a connection to a remote device is alive and, if not, restarting it. Failures are detected using different methods for each channel. Devices supported include servers, switches and routers.

An HW spokeswoman said that IP WatchDog HWg-WR02a was aimed at industrial organisations for monitoring correct function of AP points, WEB servers, or some parts of LAN technology. In case of failure, it allows servers to be either reset or a back device come into play. The new device complements the company's previous product, WatchDog Lite, which pings remote devices and resets if necessary

Many data centres already use Telnet to remotely manage devices, via IP-controlled power bars but the spokeswoman said that the IP WatchDog was a different beast. "That is totally different situation. In that case some external operator makes the decision when to switch the power on or off. WatchDog makes this decision without any operator or external software."

The HW spokeswoman said that the company did not set the prices for the product as these were set by the company's distributors.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
