CPU Cycles:  Always check for the type of CPU and amount of share you are getting if you are considering for Virtual Private Server VPS.  In linux you can get to know about this from following command

cat /proc/cpuinfo

RAM: RAM plays a very important role in the performance of your application.  The more the RAM is better will be the user experience. On UNIX machine you can check this by following command.

free -m

Bandwidth: Don’t just check for the total amount of bandwidth or transfer for a month but also check for the speed of the network.  At what data rate data transfer happens.  The more will be better.

wget -O /dev/null http://speedtest.newark.linode.com/100MB-newark.bin

Location of Server:  This is very important where your server is located.  Its true that data transfer happen with the speed of light, but more number of hopes and router always add up latency and will result in a delay.  So, before making a choice always look for where your target audience is from and choose the location which is very near to your customer.   If you buy a far end server then it may result in loose of your customers.  That is the reason why most of the company have servers located all over the world.

Disk I/O rate:  What is the read and write speed of the hard disk which store data.   What kind of hardware is used to store your data.  Don’t just go for unlimited hard disk buy also check for the type of hard disk and its I/O speed.

Education Sector in India

Education Sector in India

At present, the size of the education sector is pegged at $25 billion, says an Assocham study. With the increase in middle class income and Government expenditure the education sector may double to $50 billion by 2015. A few years ago, the domestic markets in India were just too small to enable the creation of a meaningfully sized company specially catering the need of the Education Industry. In recent times we have seen many end-user services offer opportunities in various markets to build global standard education companies. These markets include information on various courses and admission criteria, career counselling, Education Fairs, ratings for colleges, E.R.P and other technology support to colleges, schools and the Industry etc. The intersection of the mobile, Internet and social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) explosion with the emergence of these end-user services has created many exciting new opportunities.
