Nexlink S3000 the SMB Mainstream Server

Hello, Server Tim again. I want to take some time to look at the new features that make the Nexlink S3000Series the new mainstream choice for small to medium businesses.  

To refresh your memory, we introduced a new product to fit the niche between a starter and our enterprise class system. The S3000Series can be as basic as a single socket platform with a Quad Core CPU, 16GB of RAM and a pair of hard drives to as much as 14 cores and 256B of RAM and an array of storage maxing out at 64TB in a 2U Configuration.

What You Need to be Successful with Best of Breed Solutions

Posted by Sarah Colson on Wed, Aug, 28, 2013 @ 08:08 AM

When it comes to determining the best digital security and surveillance solution, there is a lot of confusion around best of breed solutions compared to commercial off the shelf / turnkey solutions. We have seen something similar in the past with IP and analog technology. Analog systems are built using a single supplier for all components in the system with little to no flexibility for options of specific usage needs.  However, IP based systems allow complete flexibility by selecting components from multiple suppliers and building a system off specific needs.

Did you know that the PARCC assessments "will require external keyboards for test takers using tablets so as not to limit or obscure the view."  On top of the keyboard requirement you will also need to provide headphones and a microphone, some may be able to use the integrated mic but that is likely to be cumbersome. Using a standalone mic on an iPad requires that you purchase an Apple iPad Camera kit to provide a USB port.

Digital Security and Surveillance for Government Facilities

Posted by Sarah Colson on Mon, Dec, 31, 2012 @ 08:12 AM

There are significant differences between winning a bid from a commercial enterprise compared to a governmental entity. Both projects have the same types of physical structure requirements, infrastructure, and assets that they need to protect. The government bidding process however is a lot more secure.
