MicroScope January 2014: A special issue looking at software defined networking

A fresh year brings new opportunities and this could be the time many in the channel consider setting out on the journey to become an MSP or investigate the opportunities around software defined networking more closely. There are also pointers in the issue on just what is happening in the security world as well as an analysis of the rising dominance of the Nordics in data centre provision.


Setting out on the MSP journey

This year could be the point at which many resellers decide they will develop their business to become a managed services specialist and as Amro Gebreel discovers there is plenty of advice available about just what steps should be taken to start to transition to becoming a managed service provider.


A software defined world

Software defined networking is the latest development but as Billy MacInnes finds out there are other software defined options and far from being a threat for resellers this technology could prove to be a source of opportunity and growth in the year ahead.


Data centre growth

The UK has its fair share of data centres but as Jim Mortleman discovers there is a serious challenge coming from the Nordics where they can exploit natural geography and climate to give British and European customers an alternative home for their data.
