Summer reading

Summertime is the best, obviously. BBQs, swimming and generally lounging around can’t be beat. Unfortunately, the weekend’s over and we’re all back at our computers pecking away.

Jo Maitland and I recently put together a summer reading roundup of the top 10 data backup news stories of the year with related expert advice. Some of the backup topics that we’ve been following this year include data deduplication, backup as a service, remote backup, tape transport and bare-metal restore.

Check out our Top 10 data backup news stories and tips now.

It would be better with one Win8 license included for the virtual world.

The point this article misses entirely is the user scenarios Client Hyper-V could enable. With almost every IT discussion these days including some mention of BYOD, it seems like Client Hyper-V could be an excellent vector to run the "corporate image" securely in a VM while personal software and data stays completely separate on the host. With the compute power available in Ultrabooks and even the Surface Pro, the performance of a corporate Windows 7 VM will be fluid for the vast majority of business users.
