So I'm actually very excited about todays teck discovery this virtualisation tool may just bring to life more hardware and host OS options for production Sys admins out there.

The Meraki wireless Acces Points can be managed through the cloud with a great dashboard interface known as Systems Manager. The clever people at Meraki came up with mesh networking which is another smart piece of WiFi teck. Once you enrol devices on the Meraki Systems Manager you can do all sorts of good things like distribute apps, send config, remote support, access control, and my favourite traffic shaping. So if you have some bandwidth hogs in your company and want to kerb them into touch with their excessive Youtube use in office hours Meraki has the answer. Have a look at there Youtube promo add its funny and drives the message home.

Which Tablet Posted on March 15 2015

Having looked quite intricately at the differences bewteen the Samsung Galaxy Pro tab and Note tab the most obvious and sparkling one is the S-Pen. Not an ordinary stylus this one as it allows for S Air-Menu activation with functions like screen crop and annotation over any app even over the whole home screen. This tablet impressed me with its 12.2" screen and all the connectivity one could need. Its not the first droid to of shined to me brighter than an iOS. Its reduced from over £650 RRP down to £324 right now too. "
