This week we welcome Adam Codega of Stenhouse Consulting. Adam is well known in the Apple community and is very active on Slack to work with his fellow consultants. So it was fitting for him to join us on Command Control Power.
A little bit about Adam:
He has been in IT since 2011 and a full time admin since 2014. He works with Rhode Island consulting firm, Stenhouse Consulting with a team of roughly 14 technicians.
-Stenhouse technicians have various areas of expertise and about half are Apple focused
-They also have a good relationship with the Apple Retail, which has proven to be a useful resource for them.
-Adam talks about the activation issues with Office 365
-Testing and deploying new technology is not something Adam shies away from so the group discusses how to approach that with clients
-He discusses the nuances of having to sell a solution to a client at times before being able to test
-Backing up Synology NAS devices become a topic of conversation
-Backblaze B2 astonishingly has no method of alert if containers become out of sync
-A second Synology with shared folder sync can become another file server at the ready. It can serve as a dual purpose Hyperbackup destination at the same time.
-A key point is to ask your clients how much their down time is worth
