This is PaperCut

This isn’t the typical PaperCut post that gives you a bunch of tips or how-tos about print management or anything like that.

We made this short film, you see, and I really wanted to share it with you.

The ultimate guide to High Availability methods for Microsoft SQL Server

High Availability is incredibly important for maximizing uptime in any print infrastructure using Microsoft SQL Server.

But if a customer wants to go beyond mere implementation, and figure out which High Availability method is truly the best for their business, the process can be a doozy.

So let’s clear things up a bit!

Scan to Cloud Storage: “dead simple” (and darn secure)

You may or may not already be familiar with PaperCut’s Scan to Cloud Storage feature.  If you aren’t, here’s what you should know.

Hang on, what do I mean by cloud storage? I’m talking about services such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Box and co.

Ok, let’s get goi … Wait. First, the why. Why is it important to be able to scan to cloud storage?

PaperCut and Job Ticketing delight a UK schooling legend

Brentwood School operates as one of the UK’s most celebrated institutions – and it’s done so since 1557. Wowsers.

What it hasn’t done for so long is maximize its printing setup. But that was before IT Manager Sarb brought his PaperCut-powered skills to the party.

The n00b’s guide to Docker

Like most geeks on the planet, many of us here at PaperCut have been getting up to speed on Docker (the Open Source containerization platform) over the last few months and years.

Remembering the difficulties and the questions I had back then, I’ve created a short one hour talk to get people bootstrapped into Docker.

[WHITEPAPER] PaperCut and High Availability

99.99%.

It’s a compelling figure. The uptime guarantee trumpeted in SLAs the world over.

Of course, 100% is simply unattainable. Those SLAs must provide wiggle room for the .01% of unplanned, unavoidable, ‘well I didn’t expect THAT to happen, ‘what do you mean there’s been a power spike to the UPS’, ‘so THAT’S what that switch does’ events.

Changes coming to printers with PaperCut 18.2

PaperCut 18.2 includes a couple of cool features we think you need to know about: Mobility Print meets secure print release and Integrated scanning for HP OXP. Plus, a bunch of other improvements we think you’ll want to know about …

Decoupling external system integrations with Google Pub/Sub

We started using Google Pub/Sub to synchronize between a legacy operations application and newer tech such as Salesforce. Along the way, we encountered quite a few challenges and not everything went according to plan.

In this post, I want to take a look back and share what we’ve learnt so far.

How to test Univention on a virtual machine

I recently installed and tested out PaperCut NG on the easy-to-use Univention Corporate Server (UCS).

Tl;dr? It was a breeze. But what about getting the server itself up and running?

Join me as I walk through creating a PaperCut-ready UCS test environment on a virtual machine.

Two tales why health monitoring is scarily important

Take it from a support manager who’s seen some grisly stuff: when it comes to protecting your print infrastructure, implementing health monitoring should be your top priority.

Sceptical? These chilling tales should scare some sense into you.

Composting and PaperCut: the perfect match

If I think about what really drew me to PaperCut, it’d have to be our software’s awesome potential to reduce waste globally.

So discovering that our earth-loving values extend to sustainable practices was terrific – and a real motivator to do my part locally.

That’s why I started up composting, right here in Portland!
