Welcome to the March 2017 Newsletter.

At the time of writing voting has just closed for the 2017 Network Computing Awards, and although the results have yet to be tallied up I'm reliably informed that we've received even more votes than in previous years. A big "thank you" is due then to everyone who took the time to cast their votes online. We're now less than a week away from the awards ceremony itself, which takes place at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London's Covent Garden on March 30th. For more details visit Network Computing Awards We look forward to seeing you there!

Elsewhere this month we have two articles that explore ways of reinvigorating your storage infrastructure. Stephane Estevez at Quantum explains how a multi-tiered approach can improve data efficiency while also saving your company time and money, while Tarkan Maner, CEO of Nexenta outlines the benefits of a radical storage shake-up through software-defined, stating that "Simplicity of use, continual software enhancement and availability of innovative, tiered purchasing models make SDS a realistic option for companies of any size."

And with the UK set to trigger Article 50 on March 29th we have some timely advice from Bill Champness at Hardware Associates on how to minimise the "Brexit effect" on IT budgets and resources. Brace yourselves people - we're going in...
