      You probably heard Facebook was down earlier this month. Or, you’ve completely cut yourself out from the world of social media (props to you). Starting around noon last Wednesday, March 13th, almost 2.3 billion people were unable to access Facebook, its apps, and services due to worldwide outages.

      Posted by Matthew Fall on Sep 21, 2018 10:00:00 AM

      What is a Virtual Machine?

      Think of a Virtual Machine as a computer within a computer. VMs allow us to open up an application window on our computer and utilize the functionality of another computer.
