Cloud Service VS Car Rental Service

April 11th, 2014

540x540-CloudvsCarPeople tend to travel with family and friends by their own car as it’s more convenient. However, it is not the most cost effective option. If a couple decides to go travelling, they could opt to rent a car when they reach their destination, which will then help them to save a lot on transportation. This scenario is in fact, similar with Cloud Market.


Cloud Service is similar to Car Rental.

1) You don’t have to own a car and pay the high costs (including maintenance)

When you buy a car, besides monthly instalments, you must also factor in your car insurance, road tax and maintenance costs (tyres, lubricants, etc) which cost you hundreds or thousands. It is completely not financially viable if you seldom use the vehicle. However, by just renting a car when you need it, you’ll save a huge amount of money on these expenses.

The same applies to cloud service; you do not have to pay for the costly maintenance fees with cloud technology.


2) Get MORE When You Need MORE

You can even rent 2 cars or a big van when there is a group of friends / relatives coming for visit. The same applies to cloud service; when you have more data or information to store or back up in a particular month, you can just rent more for that period of month only.


3) Pay As You Use

If you rent two cars, you only need to pay for the rents for two cars WITHOUT any extra charges. This is similar to Cloud Service. You just need to pay for what you use.


4) Accessibility

You can rent a car anywhere when you need it. The same applies to Cloud Service. You have easier access anytime anywhere when you need it.

April 1st, 2014

Internet Business Summit is like Saturday meet up with new friends, but in a much bigger scale. You interact with great people who enjoy your companionship and at the same time gain extra networking and knowledge.

This is exactly the composition of Malaysia-Taiwan Internet Business Summit 2014. Through inspiring speeches as well as spectacular Q&A forum session, even Malaysia’s e-Commerce heavyweights such as Exabytes CEO KS Chan and the Exabee who joined this event were extremely excited to meet and learn from Taiwan’s famous e-Commerce guru cum PCHOME founder Mr. Jan Hung-Tze. Jan’s incredible insights and teachings on Internet business was beyond rewarding to all of us.



Held on Saturday, 29 March 2014, the proud organizer of Taiwan Internet and E-commerce Association, and Purple Cane, a Chinese tea leaves, teapot and accessories provider in Malaysia, along with the support of Multimedia Development Corporation (MDEC) had marked the success of Malaysia-Taiwan Internet Business Summit 2014 at Berjaya Times Square Hotel Ballroom.


Exabytes being the co-organizer of this remarkable summit together with its subsidiary set up a booth to promote not only its proud hosting services and e-Commerce solutions, but also to hype up the whole ambience by giving away goodie bags that consisted of Exabytes notepads as well as Cloud Market and EasyCorner booklets.


What’s more, we also had the chance to pop by and witness the impressive speeches by some of the big shots of Taiwanese e-Commerce industry particularly Mr. Jan Hung-Tze.

As we settled ourselves in the core of the ballroom, Mr. Jan, who is also the president of Taiwan Internet and E-Commerce Association (TIEA) dished out nuggets of wisdom on how to craft a successful business and unselfishly shared on his comprehension on Internet Business.


The crowd went ‘Uhhh and Waa’ while Jan shared his past experience, pinpointed the challenges and encounters that one might face while battling the hard tides of owning a successful business. We were not only overwhelmed by Jan’s precious sharing which was fun and charismatic, but also at other speakers’ unconditional contributions and sharing of their own experiences and knowledge in e-commerce, mobile commerce, and app business.


One of the noticeable is speakers Mr. Chen Han Lin, the founder and CEO of EZ Table who owns a 24-hour online restaurant reservation system with over 500 luxury restaurant partnerships in both Taiwan and China emphasized on the expertise on how to recognize potential partners as well as creating a win-win business opportunities. The crowd was amused by his energetic speech on his hilarious but somehow brilliant business philosophy.

Not to forget Benjamin Tseng, the founder and CEO of PubGame, a renowned game publisher in Taiwan that has over 1 million members. Benjamin shared his visions on the future mobile game market in Asia, which had been extremely fulfilling in the recent decades.

The enthusiastic mood heightened when Jan announced his possible future visits to Malaysia again for brainstorming and interaction sessions with his Malaysian counterparts, alongside a team of Taiwanese Internet and E-commerce professionals. Finally, everyone left the ballroom with a satisfied smile on their faces, with more knowledge gained than what was expected.

Benefits of using webmail vs email client

March 24th, 2014

A brief explanation for Email Client is a program that is used to access and manage (read send, organize emails, etc) a user’s emails.  In other words, users of email client can only access their email account when they are in the office or before a particular desktop / laptop.

Webmail is becoming more essential than email client for all businesses due to the fact that users can have direct access to their webmail while they are away from the office or on holiday. Webmail has brought convenience to its users / business owners. Bear in mind that Webmail is completely different from Email Client.

Check more on the infographic below tells you the benefits of Webmail in a much clearer way.


www-webmail (1)

1) Easy Access

- You can access webmail directly as long as you have internet access

- You only need to remember the URL which brings you to your email login, your email address (equivalent to your login ID) and password.

2) Backup

- By using webmail, you can still access all your information (previously sent emails, drafts, other folders, etc) anywhere with a browser and internet connection.  No configuration or additional software is required, just an Internet browser.

- NO worries of data loss even if your computer crashes or in the case of theft.

3) Universality

- There are many types of email accounts, but no email accounts can be accessed through the email program. Email clients connect to the account via server by using email protocols such as POP or IMAP. If these are not available, then the program will not be able to access the messages, and users will be unable to check and reply to clients’ emails.

4) Do not need to own a computer

- Webmail accounts can be used at any he computer. Thus webmail users do not need to own a computer as they can access their emails using a friend’s laptop, or simply at a cyber café.
