Inside SIMS and its development - an interview with the Team

by TheScarfedOne on 28th April 2013 at 07:13 PM
So, back at the end of January, I got the opportunity to sit down with a number of the key people behind SIMS, namely Jon Wood, Graham Cooper, Ben Jones and Phil Neal.


Above - Phil Neal (MD); Graham Cooper (Head of Product Strategy)

This follows my article on SLG; and the hints at what was to become the Spring 2013 SIMS.net release.

HyperV Clusters

by TheScarfedOne on 17th February 2013 at 08:01 PM
Some of you may have read from my previous Microsoft School Blog posts that I run a HyperV Clustered network. This consists of 3 HyperV Hosts, running Server 2008 R2 (considering when to upgrade to 2012)... with the VHD server data files located on a SAN.

Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 2

by TheScarfedOne on 20th January 2013 at 09:02 PM
Its been a long time since I last wrote about Sharepoint - the platform for our Intranet; but now with the rest of the ongoing projects nearing completion - I've been able to return to this monster of a project.
