Nanotek Consulting Corp. Announces Top Level Disaster Recovery Solutions

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) December 05, 2011

Nanotek Consulting Corp. is now providing first rate contingency planning that will enable businesses to consolidate resources, save man hours, reduce energy costs by eliminating extraneous hardware, and empower companies to have greater oversight in their technical issues.

Recently, one of their clients had servers that were approaching a critical state. Before they came to Nanotek, other IT firms had told them that they should virtualize and consolidate their data into a new server. The client, a highly trafficked web property, could not afford the eight hours or more of downtime that they were initially quoted to move to a new server. Nanotek, on the other hand, implemented a unique solution: a physical to virtual conversion on the live server. The task was completed and running before the meeting was even over – without any downtime.

?At Nanotek we deploy a multi layered approach to your backup and Disaster Recovery Plan designed to meet all budgets and all contingencies,? says Harsh Pabla, CTO of Nanotek. ?First and foremost, critical servers, files, and databases are backed up locally every hour throughout the day so that in the event of data loss, restore points are usually no more than an hour old.?

Since being established 18 years ago in Toronto, Nanotek Consulting Corp. has positioned itself as a distinctive choice amongst IT consulting firms that focus on disaster recovery services. The IT consulting firm continues to garner a reputation for superior customer service by consistently making their customers feel at ease, regardless of their technical knowledge.

As an IT consulting firm, Nanotek provides value to its customers by offering a range of services that include: cloud computing, off-site data protection, network security analysis, and disaster recovery management, amongst other things. The company has leveraged its expertise and team of professionals to provide solutions to problems that competing firms qualified as intractable.

Nanotek?s ability to control and implement solutions to critical IT problems was put to the test at another time when approached by a local real estate association. The client was having their roof repaired, but an unfinished job left open areas where rain leaked in and onto their servers, cables and routers. Nanotek quickly assessed the situation, isolated damaged areas, and replaced equipment within a just few hours.

?Knowledge is important in this industry but combined with a dynamic, mobile team, strong vendor partnerships, and the commitment to deliver top level solutions, you become an unequalled end-to-end solution provider,? says Pabla. This holistic approach to servicing their customers is what has made Nanotek an unparalleled leader and a trusted source of technical knowledge.

For any business the margins can be thin, so the need to operate in a financially efficient manner is imperative to their survival. One of the major competitive advantages that Nanotek brings to their clients is the ability to cut ineffective spending. Reducing energy consumption by consolidating servers and using cloud computing as a replacement to expensive hardware are just two of the ways they save their clients money. Regardless of the cost associated with updating aging infrastructure, it is unquestionably less than losing business and valuable corporate information as a result of a crashed server.

Maturity of Commercial Debt a Growing Concern with Large Banks, Says Covendium

Orlando, FL (Vocus/PRWEB) May 31, 2011

With the news last week that the Goldman Sachs-Whitehall Real Estate Fund restructured $ 1.42 billion of debt on one of its largest hotel portfolios; the market was provided more information on a potential commercial loan maturity crisis. The restructuring of the fund is a sign that large banks are making efforts to get ahead of the upcoming wave of commercial debt maturities that are coming due in the next few years, says leading commercial debt restructuring firm Covendium LLC.

As a result of the refinancing, Goldman was able to avert over $ 650M of debt maturity in early 2012 and restructure the debt to match the underlying collateral of the hotel properties in a portfolio assembled over 2006 and 2007. “The big banks are getting an early start on restructurings ahead of the maturity witching hour,” says Gregg Grauer, Chief Executive Officer of Covendium LLC, the nation’s largest debtor-side commercial debt restructuring and advocacy firm. “While all of the media is focused on the consumer mortgage crisis, banks are very conscious of the $ 1.4 trillion of commercial debt that is coming to maturity over the next few years,” adds Grauer.

During the commercial real estate boom in the first half of the last decade, investors and lenders made big bets on new projects at values significantly higher than the current market, with maturities that are quickly coming due.

“Lenders can no longer delay the inevitable,” says John Hyltin, Managing Director of Resolutions for Covendium. “Every lender that I speak to is acutely aware of the size and maturity of their portfolio, and overwhelmed with the number of distressed loans they need to manage. If the debtor is reasonable and advised by an experienced firm like Covendium, there has never been a better time to realign debt with the underlying collateral,” advises Hyltin.

“We are seeing signs that cheaper capital from banks, insurance companies and even securitizations are slowly coming back to the market—but the quality of the collateral and the economic terms of each deal matters now more than ever,” says Grauer. “If Goldman Sachs gets a jump on debt restructuring for their own portfolio, it’s a pretty strong sign that other debtors who do not have access to the information and resources of a Goldman-Sachs should get a move on.”

For more information about how Covendium can help commercial debtors negotiate with their lenders, or any of Covendium’s products or services, call them at (407) 284-4000, or view them on the web at http://www.covendium.com.

Gondola Resorts, Inc. Launches Florida Vacation Rental Division and Adds 100 Lodging Options in Orlando

Denver, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011

Gondola Resorts, Inc. today officially added a group of new vacation homes for rent in the Orlando, Florida area that intends to serve thousands of travelers looking for alternatives to the small and confined hotel rooms in the area.

“We see the movement of people requesting more alternatives to the typical 250 square foot hotel room. The 100 rental properties we represent in Orlando truly give consumers a terrific alternative. So, it’s important to us that we continue to expand our offerings and features that provide for enhanced vacations for families,” said Gino Malara, Founder and Executive Director, Gondola Resorts. Gondola Resorts’ new nationwide partnerships are based on property management companies desiring increased bookings at the most efficient and lowest overall investment cost. Gondola Resorts effectively provides this unique and cost effective solution with no investment or risk.

The Denver based company has launched a total of 350 rental property locations in Colorado and Florida since July 2009, including 3 to 7 bedroom homes in Emerald Island, Glenbrook, Indian Creek and 31 other Orlando communities. 90% of the vacation rentals are less than 10 minutes to Disney World, 15 minutes to Sea World and 20 minutes to Universal Studios . The home rentals intend to service the growing population that demands more conveniences, along with providing strategies to help families save money. Strategies to minimize overall expenses include gourmet kitchens that reduce the need for eating-out, and providing in-home entertainment options such as billiards and foos ball tables.

Consistently ranked as one of the top family destinations in the world, Orlando’s number of attractions and extensive offering of family activities make it an ideal location. The new vacation rental location will be Gondola Resorts’ latest addition to what has only been known as a mountain-town rental company. Vacation rental condos and homes near Sea World and Universal studios include Vista Cay, Windsor Hills and Viz Cay.

A deeper analysis of hotels vs. vacation rental homes in the Orlando area offer a better insight into cost savings. Nightly rates for a normal 250 square foot hotel room at The Grand Floridian, located on the Disney World resort property, rents for $ 450 per night. In comparison, a 7 bedroom home in Emerald Island 5-minutes outside the Disney gates, with a private swimming pool, rents for $ 305 per night according to Gondola Resorts’ internet research conducted on April 7, 2011.

“It’s quite evident that a growing number of vacation travelers are moving to home rentals to replace the typical tiny hotel room,” says Malara. “We continuously compare the benefits in our market research and 99% of the time a vacation rental home or condo wins out. We also promote our corporate slogan that summarizes all the benefits of a vacation rental – Find what brings you joy and go there’”.

These “home-away-from-homes” are improved by the addition of an easy to navigate website that can easily add agility and is intended to make the vacation planning process less hectic. Additionally, Gondola Resorts’ new “Compare Prices” utility saves chosen vacation rentals so an individual has the ability to quickly and easily compare 3 or less lodging options. This function gives consumers the chance to evaluate features and benefits of each rental property in order to optimize the selection process.

Gondola Resorts plans to add property locations to the recently-launched Orlando market which will expand offerings to resort locations in Destin, Fort Meyer’s, Daytona Beach and Clearwater, Florida. Operations will be managed out of the company’s Denver office with local partnerships in each market.
