    Remotely reboot router without internet connection

    One of my clients has a variety of smaller sites that have a need to reboot a locked router from time to time. Is there any type of device I can place out there to be able to reboot say a Cisco 2800 series when internet is up but the router is locked?

    Implementing VDI

    We do have a vSphere deployment on 3 Dell hosts on Equallogic PS4000 for storage running ~25 Server VMs. We could probably make some storage space to play with but do not have processing or memory overhead currently. We'd be looking at minimum 1 full Cisco UCS blade chassis and a NetApp FS3220...

    Implementing VDI

    Those are some good basics there, I try to make sure I stick to that, but its always good to see. I actually an employee of the company, this is not a consulting-client relationship. A lot of my concern comes from not only the rollout, but the upkeep. Is it even possible that two people can...

    Replacing Domain controller with something more lightweight

    I should've expressed this better but we will be removing the existing server and am looking for options in replacement. Id rather not have to buy a brand new server just to run server core, if I don't have to

    Replacing Domain controller with something more lightweight

    We have a remote site with ~5 users, 4 IP phones and a network printer. Right now we have an old Win2003 box serving as the DC for that site. It is connected back to us via 10MB layer 3 routing on a HP 5500G-EL switch. This windows server is getting quite old and I'd like to avoid the expense of...
