Distributed, high up-time applications are architected
modularly and incorporate separate layers for data, business logic, and presentation.
These layers are often implemented on separate machines, and the most obvious example
of an n-Tier application is a website. In a website data and business logic are
combined and routed to a client browser for presentation (though increasingly, in
but the concept is still the same). Database Server systems like SQL Server, DB2,
MySQL and Oracle rely on an n-Tier architecture to drive your business apps. Your
new managed applications can apply these n-Tier concepts:
Data in your RDBMS software should not be directly
accessible to users and should
be managed by business objects.
Your presentation layer should be adaptable
so that when you want to provide a
web front end to your data it can rely on the same business logic as your desktop
Business logic should be driven by an Object
Request Broker and not by elements
of your presentation layer.
Let the experts build your next generation of software. Seafoam Solutions applies
n-Tier development principles to the design of your distributed systems so that
your data remains secure and your users get the targeted information they need -
when they need IT.

Protect Your Equipment
Your equipment is a valuable asset, so you want to get
the most out of your investment. There are a few steps you can take to ensure that
your equipment stays in tip-top shape. For systems that contain hard disk drives,
it doesn't take long for data to get jumbled. Periodic defragmentation can keep
those drives performing at optimal levels. Dust and debris finds it way into every
crack in your systems. After a while, this buildup can clog fan openings, get into
the delicate mechanisms of your removable drives, and cause your keyboards to fail.
Vacuum and air cleaning can keep your systems and peripherals healthy.

In addition to routine maintenance, you can take a few additional steps to protect
your equipment's health. One important consideration is clean, surge-free power.
Add surge suppressors to your equipment's power source to smooth out incoming
current. This step is especially important if you work around equipment that has
a strong current draw such as large electric motors or welders. Additionally, you
may want a graceful way to shut your systems down in the case of a power failure.
Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) provide you with temporary power and can signal
your units to shut down when power is unavailable, and portable generators can provide
clean, temporary power in the event of an emergency.
The physical environment your systems live in is vital to their health as well.
Cabling should not present a trip hazard, and physical security for the equipment
may be a concern to protect against pilfering, vandalism, and hacking. Most important
for the life of your equipment is a proper cooling system. Heat and humidity can
degrade system performance and cause downtime. Place your equipment in a cool, dry
