For situations where there is limited space to build or expand a data center, Cisco is providing a new solution in the form of containerized data centers. Cisco's modular infrastructure with a railing system enables site administrator to access the server rack, and the container is also designed to be power efficient and quick to deploy.
Bricks and mortar data centers can take a long time to build and require a big cash outlay upfront. The containerized data center, by contrast, can rapidly deploy anywhere in 90 to 120 days. The container can be sued for Cisco gear as well as third-party equipment from other vendors. Cisco containers can fit up to 16 racks of servers, delivering up to 44RU of available rack space. The modules also include built in fire suppression and humidity and airflow control systems.
Business people in the IT industry are often very busy people. Even though you may be busy, it's very important to keep in touch with your customers and make them feel satisfied. Having a telephone number for customers to call you can help them keep in touch, but it can be overwhelming to answer all of them at once. That's why a Corporate Ring Back can be a useful tool for your business telephone system. There are some online websites that can help set that up for you.
The ringback tone is an audible signal that can be heard by the caller while the phone line they called is still busy. The tone is typically repeated in a loop, and many businesses use it to reassure the caller, who is usually a prospect or customer, that their call will be answered soon. Some businesses, however, use the ring back more effectively by mentioning products, services or special deals in the tone. Some play music as the ring back so that callers remain entertained and will stay on the line.
