The Importance Of Computers

Computers have become one of the most important pieces of equipment in the world. Everywhere you turn you will see some form of computer, whether it’s a PC, a laptop, a tablet or even a phone, the whole world revolves around the power of computers and the internet.

Since the introduction of computers to offices and day to day living, so many tasks have become so much quicker and easier thanks to the knowledge of the internet.  Knowledge about the use of computers has become so important that governments have started to make it compulsory for children to be taught computer classes at school; these classes involve them investigating the world of the internet and learn how to use basic computer programs like Microsoft Word, Excel and Publisher.

Over the years computers have evolved with the times and changed dramatically from big bulky machines with tiny screens to flat screened monitors that are extremely easy to move. There has also been the development of the laptop and more recently the ultrabook and the tablet PC. The development of the laptop is possibly one of the biggest – other than the original invention of the computer – it has everything that’s contained in a bulky PC all in a machine of about 16 inches with the same thickness as a finger.

Computers have also enabled the elimination of any geographical gap between friends and family. Social networking sites have made it possible for people all over the world to communicate with each other at any time of the day or night. This has not only been a huge advantage for people with friends and family abroad but also for businesses who have to communicate with international partners or clients. The development of the internet in particular has also made communications around the world much easier and cheaper. E-mails, social media and conference calling has meant that there’s no need to travel to meetings or make calls on premium rate phone lines as conference calling means that a meeting can be held between all seven continents from the comfort of your own desk.

As you can see, computers have become one of the most important modern inventions and they are relied upon by the entire world every day, so what would happen if disaster struck and servers crashed, failed and were destroyed? A lot of the time this kind of disaster can destroy a business so it’s important that it’s avoided by having all of your data, documents and server information backed up and stored somewhere else and having some form of server recovery.

In order to avoid any disasters with your computer network, Jake Pullman recommends server disaster recovery, on behalf of www.planb.co.uk.
