Sagenext Prepares for Tax Season 2019: Upgrades its Cloud Architecture to Windows Server 2016

By upgrading from Windows Server 2012 R2 to more advanced OS, Sagenext aims for better server speed, performance and login time with improved user experience.

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sagenext Infotech, one of the widely recognized QuickBooks hosting providers, has confirmed that they have upgraded their server operating system by moving to the latest Windows Server 2016 from Windows Server 2012 R2. With this successful transition of server technology, the company is looking forward to improving various parameters of its cloud hosting to deliver an unparalleled experience to the users this tax season. These functional and technical upgrades are surely going to boost application accessibility, processing speed, and uptime of the servers along with ensuring smoother GUI and improved user experience.

Designed and developed by Microsoft, Windows Server 2016 is the most innovative server operating system that has revolutionized the way networked or hosted applications run on the cloud. What sets Windows Server 2016 apart from previous server technologies is that it comes loaded with highly advanced features including two native containers:
1. Windows Server Containers
2. Hyper-V Containers.

Windows Server Containers run on the operating system directly but they are isolated from one another. On the other hand, Hyper-V Containers render better isolation and operate from a Hyper-V virtual machine (VM), allowing nested virtualization facility. Also, it offers new and advanced security measures like Shielded VMs to protect the content within the VM in a multi-user environment. Sagenext, by making this switch, has added more power to its cloud architecture to deliver uninterrupted facility for both the shared and dedicated hosting users.

Speaking at an event, Chief Technical Officer of Sagenext Infotech, Jack Jasteen said “One really cannot emphasize enough on the usefulness of cloud technology in the modern accounting industry, and the dependency increases multi-folds during busy tax season. Day in and day out, we keep on looking for new and innovative ways to streamline tax and accounting operations of our valued clients. And, by upgrading to the latest Windows Server 2016, we are focused on taking the QuickBooks and tax software hosting services to a whole new level”.

He further added, “Being a tried and tested platform with lightweight nature, Windows Server 2016 consumes minimum server resources while delivering the highest level of security and reliability. Moreover, it comes with revamped GUI and users will feel like working on their local desktop when using Windows Server 2016.”

As a part of their research and development program, Sagenext has already begun the testing phase of the latest server release (Windows Server 2019) and is planning to roll it out in the near future. The singular aim of the company is to enhance the user experience and meet the ever-increasing hosting demands of the clients.

Located in the city of Augusta, Georgia, Sagenext Infotech is one of the most outstanding cloud hosting providers with a strong foothold in the field of tax and accounting application hosting.

A New Tea Subscription Service: “Jacqueline’s Teas” Launched by Daughter of Jacqueline’s Tea Room

Mother-Daughter Team Jacqueline and Barbara Soley

Inspired by former Tea Room patrons, over 80 bespoke teas, afternoon tea recipe pairings, and tea education now available at home to subscribers

PORTLAND, MAINE, UNITED STATES, January 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tea aficionados can start the new year with a constant supply of premium hand-blended teas, curated and packaged by a Maine mother-daughter team. Jacqueline’s Teas is a new online subscription tea service with over 80 varieties of fresh loose-leaf artisan teas sustainably sourced from around the world and delivered by mail each month: www.JacquelinesTeas.com.

Inspired by the overwhelming wave of nostalgia from past Tea Room patrons, Barbara returned to Maine to launch Jacqueline’s Teas in time for the new year. Says Barbara, “Jacqueline’s Tea Room was a magical place where time stood still and loved ones listened to each other’s stories over delicious tea. Everything was taken care of so guests could relax and be fully present with friends and family. The menu was pre-selected and my “tea intuitive” Mom let customers know which tea they’d like best. I wanted to preserve this incredible experience by translating it into a cozy at-home tea ritual.”

Jacqueline and Barbara have designed five subscription tea offerings that capture the Tea Room’s greatest qualities: unique loose-leaf tea blends, a curated menu, delectable treats, an elegant ambiance, and lessons about tea.

AMCD Urges Rashida Tlaib to Control Her Speech

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi poses with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib at her swearing in ceremony January 3, 2019 (Getty images)

Sheikh Mohamad Al Hajj Hassan

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, January 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Mideast Coalition for Democracy urges Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to practice patience and self-control.

“It is unfortunate that the first impression Americans were given of Congresswoman Tlaib was one of a newly-elected woman cursing in front of her young son and onlookers while urging the precipitous removal from office of America’s duly elected President simply because she disagrees with him,” lamented AMCD Secretary Rebecca Bynum.

“This kind of behavior does not inspire confidence, to say the least,” said AMCD co-chair John Hajjar. “It was too bad Ms Tlaib’s emotional immaturity was so blatantly on display immediately upon taking office. This kind of behavior reflects badly on the Middle Eastern Community as a whole.”

AMCD urges true moderate Muslims and other Middle Easterners to run for office while keeping in mind they are representing much more than just themselves.

“Opposing the President is one thing, but using such language is not acceptable,” added AMCD co-chair Tom Harb. “No Middle Easterner will approve of showing that kind of disrespect.”

“The tongue is a most unruly member,” explained Sheikh Mohamad Al Hajj Hassan chairman for American Muslim Coalition. “It is said that he who controls his tongue is greater than he who controls a city. Self-control is essential for anyone who claims to want to effect change. One who cannot control him or herself will not ultimately be trusted to help control the nation."

Sam Yono, addressing Congresswoman Tlaib in an open letter wrote: “[Y]ou got elected to this prestigious position because of your serious campaign and hard work. … Your remarks were far from what many [sent you to Congress to do]. You came in to fulfill their dreams as a leader and a bridge builder. Instead, you came in with your destructive remarks as if you want to turn Washington upside down.”

AMCD condemns any effort to remove the President without due cause as laid out in the Constitution. The Democratic Party seems to have started with the will to impeach and then decided to look for a reason. We should never criminalize political differences. These kinds of shenanigans are beneath our great nation.

New Animated Video Explains “What It’s Like To Live With A Brain Injury”

New video from De Caro & Kaplen, LLP sets out to reveal what it’s like to live with a TBI.

We believe that ‘The Invisible Rain Cloud’ accurately conveys the experiences and emotions of many brain injury survivors, and early feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive.”

— Michael Kaplen

PLEASANTVILLE, NEW YORK, USA, January 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recent CDC figures reveal 5.3 million Americans currently live with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) related disability, while millions more visit the emergency room each year reporting brain injuries including concussions. With statistics demonstrating that brain injuries have now reached “epidemic levels” in the USA, New York Brain injury attorneys De Caro & Kaplen, LLP have released an animated video revealing what it’s like to live with a TBI.

Shana De Caro, a senior partner in the firm, explains why they created the video:

“Traumatic brain injury is often called ‘The Invisible Injury’ as symptoms may not be apparent to an observer. And for those suffering from a TBI it can be difficult to explain how they feel. While every TBI is different, and everyone experiences their injury in a unique way, our video attempts to explain some of the common symptoms and feelings an individual may confront after brain injury.”

The video, which can be viewed on the firm’s website and YouTube channel, is titled ‘The Invisible Rain Cloud’. A conversation with a former client provided the inspiration for the project.

“I had been speaking with a former client, who described living with traumatic brain injury as ‘dragging around a personal rock’. “I thought it was a great analogy, and it stayed with me. Others find it difficult to comprehend, so I started thinking about how to explain what it’s like from the perspective of someone with a brain injury”, explained Shana.

Shana, who was recently re-elected for a second consecutive term as secretary of the Brain Injury Association of America, continued, “I decided to reach out to the TBI community for further feedback. While describing their symptoms, several individuals mentioned a fog in their head that was invisible. We decided to call this fog an ‘invisible rain cloud’, and in our video, the cloud haunts the protagonist, illustrating the symptoms and experiences of life with traumatic brain injury.”

Michael V. Kaplen, a partner in the firm, who chairs the New York State Traumatic Brain Injury Services Coordinating Council and is a former President of the Brain Injury Association of New York, believes that the video will help people with a brain injury to explain many of their hidden scars and difficulties, and assist family and friends understand the frustrations survivors face in their daily lives.

“We believe that ‘The Invisible Rain Cloud’ accurately conveys the experiences and emotions of many brain injury survivors, and early feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive. But, our video makes it clear that every brain injury is different. While we are confident that a large number of individuals with TBI will identify with the symptoms we describe and the analogies we use, a brain injury is incredibly complex and others may experience their injury in a different way. ” says Kaplen.

Kaplen highlights the extraordinary CDC figures of the prevalence of TBI-related disabilities as evidence that more needs to be done to help individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. “Brain injuries must be regarded as a public health crisis in the US, and advocacy, education, and resources must be devoted to this devastating condition. A traumatic brain injury is a life changing event which impacts the daily lives over 5 million Americans and their families.”

Michael concludes, “The injury may be invisible, but the devastating ramifications have a significant, life-long impact. We hope that ‘The Invisible Rain Cloud’ will help propel TBI into the political and public consciousness.”
