With data still growing at exponential rates, being able to access or analyze your data in the most time and cost efficient manner, can result in either huge rewards or losses when compared against your competitors. Flash based storage offers measurable performance benefits over spindle based storage and can give you a leading edge in competitive situations.
Select Technology are pleased to announce Nimble Storage, the market leaders in flash storage, as the latest addition to our storage portfolio. Nimble Storage’s Adaptive Flash platform dynamically and intelligently deploys storage resources to meet the growing demands of business-critical applications and is the first storage solution to eliminate the flash performance and capacity trade off.
By adding Nimble Storage to our portfolio, we can offer a full complement of storage offerings for any size company or storage scenario.

Can you believe Windows XP is over 12 years old? Released in 2001 and used by millions it is arguably Microsoft’s most successful operating systems to date, it will certainly be the end of an era when support is finally ended for it on 8th April 2014. From an IT Support perspective there will of course be concerns when this day finally comes. Apart from no product support and inevitable future product incompatibilities, the biggest risk from continuing to use XP after support ends is due to windows security updates ceasing to be released. Without regular security patching, Windows XP could become an easy target for hackers and other malicious activity. For business users we would always recommend upgrading desktop operating systems before support ends.

Remote monitoring utilises a secure, encrypted internet connection between a small software agent running on your server or PC and our central monitoring server. This allows us to monitor your critical systems on a 24/7 basis, giving us a real-time view of device availability, performance data and utilisation statistics. We are automatically alerted when a defined threshold is breached meaning potential IT issues are addressed before they escalate into disruption and downtime

Windows 8 will soon be upon us, and we have been testing the software over the past few months. It’ll surely be a “Marmite®” operating system – some will love it and some will hate it, as there are going to be some controversial and brave changes to the interface, such as removing the start bar, which has been present in the operating system for 17 years (yes Windows 95 was that long ago!). Unlike previous operating systems, Microsoft are having to make this one cross-platform, as their up-and-coming surface tablet will use the new operating system, so there will be optimisations made for the touch screen navigation. The question is will the clever chaps at MS be able to make a single operating system efficient intuitive and yet without compromise, because it will be a multi device platform? Time will tell…
