This gives customers that have moved to cloud-based BPOS a way "to meet legal discovery requirements," says Brian Dye, Symantec senior director of product management. When lawyers need to run searches to discover and collect documents and e-mail, Enterprise Vault 9.0 now provides a way to link to BPOS to do that through what's called the Discovery Collector.

Enterprise Vault is getting a workout as organizations try out new technologies.

When Mediterranean Shipping, a large container-shipping company, started to use Microsoft SharePoint to issue daily advisories about shipment instructions, it found it also needed to deploy Enterprise Vault to retain substantial amounts of data each day but not "clutter up" SharePoint, says Sergio Fedelini, vice president of infrastructure at the container shipping company. "The information is old and we don't need to clutter it up."

In other announcements, Symantec also said it's offering NetBackup 5000 Deduplication Appliance, its first appliance form factor for NetBackup.

Customers have been asking for this option, Dye says, and the appliance can be integrated into a storage pool with NetBackup 7.0 and 6.5. In addition, NetBackup 7.0 now has a way to backup cloud-based storage services from Nirvanix.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
