What to do

Just write your case study, following the guidelines below.

When it’s done, email it to us, along with any relevant photos and images, and we’ll look it over.

Keep in mind that we’re keen to publish your case study, so we’re happy to help you with any questions, and to get it ready for publication.

We might ask for more information, and we’ll also edit your article as we see fit, for clarity, accuracy and style.

When we’re ready to publish it, we’ll let you know by email, and you’ll have a chance to see your case study before we send it live.

After it’s published, your case study will stay on our website for at least three months, and possibly longer.

Note: We reserve the right to decide whether or not to publish a case study and to remove a case study at any time at our discretion.


Length Your article should be around 300 words or around half a page in length. Longer articles are also great.
Photos Please also include at least 1 photo, and up to 5.

We may not use all of your photos due to space limitations, but typically we’ll use 2 to 3 photos.

You can also include a photo of yourself if you like.

Hardware Preferably, your case study would include the use of at least one of the following (as boxes, rack mount or boards):

  • ALIX 1
  • ALIX 2-2
  • ALIX 2-3
  • ALIX 3
  • net5501
  • net6501
  • nuxV 1600

  • Intense PC

or any of our other servers or desktop PCs.

We’ll also consider publishing interesting uses of our other products. If you’re not sure, please contact us.

What to include Think about the following questions when writing your case study:

  • What was the problem or application?
  • What other options did you consider, and why did you decide to choose our products?
  • Which hardware are you using and how you are using it?
  • What novel, innovative or unusual uses have you found for our products?
  • What are the benefits to your business or situation of using our products for your particular application (provide examples if it helps to demonstrate the benefits)?
    • Cost savings
    • Time savings
    • Other effects (e.g. usability, reliability, future-proofing)
  • What other benefits do you expect to see in the future?
  • What plans do you have for making further use of our products?

It’s not necessary to address every single point listed above in your submission, but every detail you add helps to make your case study even better.

Use this as a starting point and get your creative juices flowing!

Other info Your submission should also include:

  • Your contact details: name, position, company name, address, phone, email, website
  • (Optional) Your company logo as a gif/jpg/png, largest dimension no more than 200px
