What is the core of our business?

by .

The core of our businessThings are moving on fast in the IT world. There’s the obvious development of ‘cloud’ and its many descriptions, the Big Data challenge and BYOD, not to mention the rise of the ‘as-a-service’ offerings. Whilst the provision of Dedicated Servers remains at the core of what we do at Veber, we are increasingly being asked to provide services outside of our core portfolio of services. This is challenging and time-consuming but incredibly rewarding and has driven us to ask questions over business models and customer engagement strategies. What is going to work best for us?

Juniper MX960 Real World Review

by .

photo 1The Juniper MX960 is our new router. But, it’s not like your Netgear, Dlink or Zyxel routers that you probably have in your homes (although ironically the principle that those home routers have is essentially the same as what our Juniper MX960 does).

Leap Motion Controller Review

Minority report still

Well, it’s an interesting world isn’t it? Only back in 2002 we were being wowed with scenes of the future in Minority Report with Tom Cruise standing in front of a large array of see through monitors and him pushing the images around the screens using nothing but his hands – no mice to be seen.
Well, just over 10 years later and that technology is within our grasp. Only within the last couple of weeks we’ve seen this technology being used by SpaceX founder Elon Musk to show a 3D image of one of their rockets, and now we can use that same technology within our own homes thanks to the Leap Motion Controller. The tech geek in me just had to give it a go. It’s worth mentioning that with Christmas around the corner, the Leap Motion Controller would make a great stocking filler for the tech obsessed (or Tom Cruise fans).  Continue reading
