Ever wondered where all the spam went?
It wasn’t long ago that we used to get weekly check-ins from foreign princes offering us immense wealth. What about those bank scares that would request us to send them all our sensitive banking info. Doesn’t seem like we get those too often anymore.
So what happened?
While digging through the data for this infographic I discovered a couple surprising things about how Canadians use file sync.
While the idea of email service seems trivial from the outset, I think most business folks that rely on email for their business communications will quickly tell you otherwise. The intrinsic value is huge and it’s one of those things where it’s not a problem until it is. When it’s not there, you notice how much you depend on it, and it becomes very clear very quickly just how important email is as a tool.
There are not too many tools that we use that rival the common placed email. It’s a given that a business tracks their money and they use an email service. Last month we wanted to know which email services our fellow Canadians were using. This month we want to know how frequently they use it. More specifically, we want to know how often people are checking their work email on their phones. Are they checking more than once an hour or are there some “once a day” email checkers out there? Let us know how often you check your email by filling out the blue form at the bottom.
There are a variety of email services that businesses use. From onsite solutions like Microsoft Exchange to cloud solutions like US based Google Gmail. What are the reasons some people prefer one email service over the other? Is it due to ease of use? Is it because that’s what they’ve always used? We want to know which service you use at work and whether you are happy with it. Let us know by answering this month’s question.
Cloud backup can be a lot like vacation insurance. 99% of the time you never have to use it but that 1% that you do turns you into a vacation insurance advocate. But what happens when you need coverage and realize you purchased it for the wrong dates or you didn’t buy enough?
Misunderstanding cloud backup scheduling and retention won’t stress you out when things are going great 99% of the time. After all you have cloud backup and that makes your business data and those that rely on it happy. But what about the 1% of times when you need to restore your backup? Did all of the data get backed up that you thought was protect? Did you set up your schedule correctly? What about setting up your retention?
Why wait until it’s too late to find out the answers to these questions? In just a couple of minutes you can pick up several tips that can save your data and you some grey hairs down the road.

For those of you that use a cloud file syncing services, like Dropbox, have you ever wondered where your data is being stored?

We want to know what your thoughts on this are. In particular, we are interested in your thoughts on business data. Should businesses using file syncing services care about where the cloud copy of there data is stored? Let us know by answering this month’s question.
When we set out to redesign www.nirix.com, we wanted to achieve a better user experience by embracing a more minimalist approach, speeding up the site and humanizing our company. While our services need to have robotic precision, our customers value NIRIX’s human side and we wanted our site to show that.
