  • 22 November 2011: Read the latest issue of the UK’s leading technology publication, where we analyse the latest technology news and what it means for IT managers.

    In this week’s Computer Weekly, we talk to the British Library about the enormous storage challenges of digitising its printed archive, a task that may not be achieved in our lifetimes; we examine the state of the UK IT jobs market and highlight the skills that are most in demand by employers; we look at case studies of the best virtualisation projects; and the final part of our Buyer’s Guide to Windows XP upgrades makes the business case for moving to Windows 7.

    Buyer’s Guide to upgrading from Windows XP: Part four - Why you must move to Windows 7

    Virtualisation case study: Flybe

    Flybe, the low-cost airline, had native back-up and replication software that couldn’t support a growing virtualised infrastructure or the company’s key business operations. The firm needed a scalable back-up tool for its virtual machines (VMs) that would run critical applications.

     

    Virtualisation case study: Avis

    In just six months, Avis Norway replaced its dispersed IT setup of three datacentres delivering similar services with a centralised IT infrastructure. Using VMware-based server consolidation, the project brought performance efficiencies and cost savings to the business.
