Disaster Recovery Services: Saving Health Care?
John Moore writes about security practices and the healthcare industry.

“We’ve described how electronic health records could present an opening for MSPs as healthcare providers seek externally hosted systems. But health organizations with in-house EHR systems also present a services opportunity: disaster recovery. Here’s why: hospitals face uptime concerns as medical records transition from paper to electronic form. Patient safety depends on keeping records available. It’s a situation that raises the profile of disaster recovery. But many hospitals are in a bind. IT budget constraints make it difficult for them to build out redundant data centres. Another obstacle: hospital IT departments have few people to dedicate to developing and testing disaster recovery plans. A managed DR service, however, provides a workaround for healthcare organizations.”

MSI announces GE700 gaming laptop for those who like to be entertained

Tim Stevens writes about MSI’s new gaming laptop.

“(MSI’s GE700 is) a 17.3-inch LCD (notebook)with an unspecified resolution, up to a nine-cell battery, and room for dual hard disks of up to 500GB apiece. Graphics are again handled by an ATI Radeon HD5730, processing again done by an Intel Core i5 chip, and there’s a 720p webcam for live-streaming your every blemish. No word on price for this 3.2kg (7lb) machine, but MSI doesn’t tend to waste much time in getting these things to retail”
