Enterprises offered new tool to restart remote devices

Czech this out - HW's Ping Restarter

A Czech company has come out with a new device aimed at companies running webs servers concerned about connectivity.

Prague-based HW Group has launched what it calls a Ping restarter designed for checking that a connection to a remote device is alive and, if not, restarting it. Failures are detected using different methods for each channel. Devices supported include servers, switches and routers.

An HW spokeswoman said that IP WatchDog HWg-WR02a was aimed at industrial organisations for monitoring correct function of AP points, WEB servers, or some parts of LAN technology. In case of failure, it allows servers to be either reset or a back device come into play. The new device complements the company's previous product, WatchDog Lite, which pings remote devices and resets if necessary

Many data centres already use Telnet to remotely manage devices, via IP-controlled power bars but the spokeswoman said that the IP WatchDog was a different beast. "That is totally different situation. In that case some external operator makes the decision when to switch the power on or off. WatchDog makes this decision without any operator or external software."

The HW spokeswoman said that the company did not set the prices for the product as these were set by the company's distributors.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
