While you are lying on a hot beach (as I hope) or in a lone office updating systems of a client (as I fear), why don’t you stay update reading GURU advisor?

Despite being quite hot, this month too we have prepared plenty of news.
We keep on talking about Managed Service Providers by presenting a detailed coverage of a simple and functional platform for MSP, available for free at least for its fundamental features (Comodo One).

This month our lawyer tells us what we must be aware of while reading such contracts and which clauses in particular should catch our attention, both in positive and negative. Naturally, from a legal profile, it’s better to look for an Italian provider, as you will see.

Many of you ask us about the hosting world: this month we have taken into account the most used providers in the world and in Europe and compared a basic hosting plan suitable to run a Wordpress website: you will discover prices and the (scarce) technical information available for each service.

Lastly, while waiting for VMworld USA, which starts at the end of this month, we have interviewed Rodolfo Rotondo from VMware and talked about the future and the new “hardware” for our applications: he says it’s called Cloud..
