ActiveCollab: Peace of mind from Nightmare to Peace

Andrew Folts, Sherpa Design Co., wrote this customer story.
Hello there. Andrew Folts is a freelance web designer and developer. I also own Sherpa Design Co.
ActiveCollab is my tool for organizing everything, from complex WordPress themes to simple website builders projects to professional development. Many clients have a specific platform or technology in mind when they contact ActiveCollab. However, I have learned that it is always better to start with a clean slate. This allows us to identify the main problem and agree on a solution. Once we have agreed on the main challenge, we will create a project template and make any adjustments if necessary. If I’m in hurry, I’ll use ActiveCollab to take notes. I’ll then ask my client for feedback on the process. After the project is over, I will ask my client if there was anything they would improve on the process.
ActiveCollab was actually introduced to me during a major website project that was spiraling out of control due to the number of revisions required by my client. I was using Word documents, emails and my brain to keep track. ActiveCollab is the true measure of success
I have reduced the number of double-checks and emails searches I normally use to track a particular task group by 75% in my first month. Tweet this. What’s more important to me is the peace-of-mind ActiveCollab offers. Because I can see that they have been completed, I feel less stressed and more confident in telling my clients that certain tasks are “done”. Tweet this Unending Inspiration
It can be intimidating to navigate the internet, and many small businesses are lost in the shuffle. I am constantly inspired by the unique products, stories, and services these businesses offer. I love sharing them through smart code, user-friendly design, and it is so rewarding to be able to divide my time into different skill sets. ActiveCollab allows me to constantly learn new skills and improve my existing ones without feeling overwhelmed.

Multicloud Storage Service Spans AWS Microsoft Azure Nimble Storage Inc. has today launched a beta offering that claims to be the only enterprise-grade multicloud block store service for Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), and Microsoft Azure public cloud. The product is called Nimble Cloud Volumes, and its enterprise-grade availability as well as data services can be used to help organizations move new types enterprise apps to the cloud. Nimble Storage believes that the first wave cloud apps will be mostly content-centric, native Web and mobile apps. They lack enterprise-friendly features like data durability and data services such as snapshots, and the ability to share the same volumes with multiple hosts. The next wave of cloud applications comprises traditional transactional-centric workloads — like transactional databases — moving to the public cloud space, with stringent storage requirements. The company stated that NCV flash-based storage could provide enterprise functionality, opening up new frontiers. It also offers other benefits, such as the elimination of cloud vendor lock-in, better data reliability, and uninterrupted data access. Ajay Singh, a senior executive at AWS, stated that the NCV service delivers flash storage volumes or block storage to AWS EC2 instances and Azure Virtual machines. It offers significant advantages over native cloud block storage services such as Amazon EBS and Azure Disk Volumes. The company highlighted the following three main benefits of the new NCV service:

Data mobility between public clouds or on-premises datacenters is easy without large data egress fees. Global visibility and predictive analytics allow for information such as usage history,…
