The home to ComputerWorld's crack team of experts and engineers where they will give you expert advice, opinion and tips to help you Define Tomorrow™
I’ve recently been involved in several conversations with customers and within ComputerWorld regarding office space and the future of the office.
Whilst this isn’t an area I profess to be a specialist in, it does tie in with something that’s close to my heart. That is “workspace transformation”. Or to use a less fancy phrase, the way we work and get stuff done.
For those that missed our Define Tomorrow event in June 2018, this webinar summarises the event in under 1 hour.
In this series of blogs posts, I’m going to cover the deployment process of NSX-V and how to configure some of the components required to demonstrate functionality such as micro-segmentation, logical switching and distributed routing.
I was fortunate enough recently to attend the EMEA Partner Event for Barracuda in Monte Carlo. In this blog series, I will summarise the key advancements that Barracuda have made and any announcements that were made at the event.
in 2018 it is my opinion that one of the most important things an IT leader or influencer can do is to have a vision, to develop a strategy and to fully document it.
Barry Coombs and Anthony Charman of ComputerWorld recorded a short webinar for those that couldn't join us in Bristol for the live. In this webinar, Barry and Anthony summarise the content from the day, in particular; VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX, data protection, Security and Workspace transformation including VMware Workspace ONE.
In this short video, ComputerWorld specialists discuss how 4 technologies can help your business build a better security posture through, Anti-virus, Auditing, Patch Management and User Education.
Whilst many of our customers have a good high-level understanding of vSAN this series of blog posts will cover some of the concepts in further detail and hopefully help answer some of the typical questions I get asked.
The guys at IGEL were nice enough to send me an IGEL UD Pocket recently for me to evaluate, the UD pocket is a bootable USB thin client that can be used to turn any X86 hardware into a thin client. I have been using the UD Pocket for the last month and have recorded a video with my thoughts and experiences of the device.
The start of a new year is always a good time to plan your housekeeping, consider your approach and set the strategy for the year ahead. This often brings about the question, "When should I upgrade my virtual infrastructure?". This article highlights the key benefits of upgrading your infrastructure.

I’ve blogged about this for previous versions of VMware Horizon and with version 7.6 now GA I thought I would put all of the information together and hopefully simplify the process by removing some peripheral information.
I am currently studying for the VCAP-DTM deploy accreditation and as such am going through the exam blueprint, which is a kind of a gospel for these exams.
I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Martijn Smit for VMworld TV live at VMworld 2018. Martijn asked me about my career, blogging, the VMware Community and much much more.
In this video demonstration I will how you how to create new networks within the NSX environment and make them routable on an external network, all without making any changes to physical switches.
Today, myself, the rest of the ComputerWorld team and our customers who are out at VMworld 2018 were lucky enough to get a chance to hear about VMware’s EUC vision and strategy from the main EUC man himself, Shawn Bass, CTO of EUC at VMware.
This year I am extremely lucky enough to be out in Barcelona for VMworld 2018! Whilst there is so much going on, with announcements, hands on labs, product demos and of course meeting everyone within the community, I wanted to give myself a clear focus for the week and learn more about Workspace Transformation.
Service Composer is a component within NSX that allows the automation of security policy. In this video demonstration I will show you how to use Service Composer to configure a security policy that can isolate a virtual machine if a virus is found.
NSX Manager can be integrated with Active Directory to allow Distributed Firewall (DFW) rules to be applied based on the used identity. In this video I will demonstrate how AD based security groups can be used with the DFW to allow access for the SSH protocol.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend this year’s Barracuda Tech summit in the breathtaking scenery of the small remote town of Alpbach in Austria. Which sits at over 3000ft above sea level in the Austrian mountains
The objective of the summit was for Barracuda to deliver to their top 400 partners and customers a technical update on all their products line and business update on how Barracuda is doing and what they are planning for the future.
