Wow what an amazing week of miscellaneous work we have been up to. On Monday through to Wednesday we spent rolling out new exchange servers to the existing network whilst back at the office we have our designer rebuilding our company website so that we can do more with it. We would also like to welcome www.bettertransport.org.uk onto our network.
So it was time to upgrade our Microsoft Exchange network and what better way to do this was to roll out some HP servers bursting with Ram and Processors connected up to a Dell Equalogic. After plenty of planning on the Microsoft Technet website and lots of video watching at CBT Nuggets and research we started off on our journey into the world of the Microsoft Exchange mysteries. This install was straight forward, We were bolting onto our existing setup which makes for an easier life. Short of some testing we are almost there with 4 additional exchange servers. The DAG is almost complete as well. The edge servers will come shortly to deal with SPAM.

Do not get me wrong, I really do like WordPress, it is fantastic for hundreds of reasons, but sadly for our needs it is far too restricting and limiting. We were feeling a little strangled using it in our profession for taking orders and setting them up on the Plesk servers. So we have started from scratch and have used Adobe Dreamweaver which will now allow us more flexibility and give us a more fluid site. We will not need to use third party software as we will code our own.
Finally I would like to welcome Better Transport onto our network. Its a brilliant site and I highly recommend visiting it. www.bettertransport.org.uk
