My most recent post over at 4Sysops is on Active Directory Federation Services and what’s new in Windows Server 2016. Read it here.

Enjoy and thanks for reading.

I wrote two articles, one on Hyper-V in the recently released RTM version of Windows Server 2016 for virtualizationreview.com. The other one cover System Center 2016. This one covers the new features in Hyper-V such as Storage QoS, Hyper convergence through storage spaces direct, software defined networking, Nano server, upgrading a Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V cluster to 2016, better backups through resilient change tracking in the platform, Shielded VMs, Windows and Hyper-V containers and Resilient File System (ReFS). Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

Here’s another post that was published a while ago on 4Sysops. This time I looked at a “hobby project” from a couple of people in the Azure engineering team. This is a study in deploying a “complex” piece of software in Azure but the end result is a PowerBI dashboard to track usage and billing across multiple subscriptions. Find it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

I’m catching up on some posts that were published a while ago (on 4Sysops) but I never mentioned them here. Azure Business to Business (B2B) sounds very similar to the B2C service but has a totally different target audience.

Find it here.

Enjoy and thanks for reading.

My latest post in looking at Azure technologies is now online at 4Sysops. This time I look at B2C, a service that helps app developers authenticate users without having to build it themselves. Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

Catching up on some published articles over the last few weeks, here’s my latest post at 4Sysops on Azure Container Service (ACS). Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for your time in reading it.

Rounding off my overview of System Center 2016 here I look at Service Manager for 4Sysops. Read it here.

Enjoy! And thanks for reading.

My third post in my regular column for virtualizationreview.com looks at the recently released Technical Preview 5 (apparently feature complete) and what’s coming in Hyper-V. Read it here.

Enjoy and thanks for reading.

The second and last part of my look at OMS for virtualizationreview.com is online here. In this part I look at Solutions (formerly known as Intelligence Packs), alerts, custom dashboards, performance monitoring and PowerBI integration as well as list of resources.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading.

Part 1 of my look at OMS for virtualizationreview.com is now online here. I cover what OMS is, how to set up a workspace, how to connect data sources and the free mobile app.

Enjoy!
