5 způsobů jak efektivně využít USB flash disky - Informace - Katolický

Dobrý den přátelé!
USB flash disky jsou, od doby floppy disků, nejvýhodnějším mediem k dočasnému uložení dat. Možná, že se vám bude hodit nápověda, jak lze toto medium využít ještě lépe.
Na stránce svého Infoservisu jsem vystavil kopii videa ( v angličtině ), na kterém vás autor seznámí hned s pěti způsoby efektivního využití USB disků. Patří sem:
- Running portable applications and application suites (check out PortableApps.com)
- Booting Windows or Linux from the drive (check out these TechRepublic resources, “Create your own bootable USB flash drive for Windows XP”, “SolutionBase: Puppy Linux teaches an old dog new tricks”, and “Linux in your pocket: Run SLAX from your USB keychain”)
- Speeding up Windows Vista or Windows 7 with ReadyBoost
- Creating a Windows password reset disk with the USB key instead of a floppy
- Using the flash drive like a key to lock your computer (check out Predator)
Ale pozor, autor vás rovněž upozorňuje na jedno nebezpečí pro firmy - na těchto malých potvůrkách lze snadno nepozorovaně odnést důležitá firemní data.

Implementing sound financial management within an IT framework is broader than simply being more efficient. Many factors are involved: an understanding of the main drivers of IT costs, aligning IT spending plans with overall business strategy, using financial resources efficiently, viewing IT expenditures as investments and having procedures to track their performance, and implementing sound processes for making IT investment decisions.
