Important Tax Benefit:
 
Businesses have significant reasons to acquire and install capital equipment before the end of 2013, thanks to the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.  Purchase hardware and software before 12/31/2013 and receive a benefit on your 2013 tax return.  There is still time!

Manage your Information Technology in 2014:
 
The New Year is here.  What are your plans for improving operations and cutting costs when it comes to your Information Technology? 
Here are the most essential components to a sound IT infrastructure, which are must-haves to secure data, improve operations, and keep on top of security:
 
Backup: the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. This can be done with managed Colocation, managed on-premise backups, or cloud-based backups.
 
Disaster Recovery: Have you considered your options for when the unexpected happens?  After super-storm Sandy, things changed.  Be prepared for business continuity for next time. 
 
Network Management: Organize and streamline the activities, methods, procedures, and tools that pertain to the operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning of networked systems.  CNS has a Network Operations Center (NOC) open 24/7/365.
 
Colocation: Rest assured that your networking equipment is always up and running.  Colocation provides power, cooling, and physical security at a minimum of cost.  CHS is home to Long Island’s premier 100,000-square-foot data center.
 
2014 is sure to bring other trends in technology to the forefront as well, such as BYOD technology and Cloud technology.  CNS is prepared, and you can read updates about the latest in IT news by subscribing to our blog, which is updated several times weekly.
