Windows Server 2016 Licensing and Beyond

Microsoft Is Making the Switch to Core-Based Licensing—but What Next?

by Matt Smith | 12.11.15

News just broke from Microsoft regarding some radical changes in how we will license Windows Server when 2016 releases next year. The new licensing model is very similar to the shift to core-based licensing from Proc-based licensing that we saw with SQL Server 2012. For those of you who worked through that, you will have the base knowledge to work from, as this experience will be similar.

Mirage as a Solution

A More Efficient, Convenient, Secure Way to Compute

by Tony Dancona | 09.18.15

When does VMware Mirage really make sense? For users who travel frequently—say you’re on a plane, in a car, or just on the move—you may not always have network connectivity, but you still need that full operating system on your device. This is where Mirage comes into play. It works on dynamic layering from the data center delivered to the device.

Windows 10 Updates and the Enterprise

What It Could Mean in Practical Terms

by Lane Shelton | 08.04.15

Windows 10 represents a significant evolution in the relationship between deploying the Windows OS and licensing the Windows OS. We’ve already seen other major changes to Windows licensing: the introduction of the user-based subscription, the ability to purchase an upgrade license to Windows Enterprise without the need for Software Assurance—and there are more changes to come. One of the most significant changes specific to Windows 10, however, is the way you’ll be consuming updates. Until Windows 10, there’s always been something of a dividing line between security updates and features updates. Security updates are quick and ongoing, while the features updates are rolled into big groupings—and deploying those is usually a heavy lift for IT.

Windows Server 2012 Licensing and Virtualization

A Basic Checklist to Get You Started

by Stacy Cote | 04.17.15

When you go to the grocery store, you probably bring a list of items you plan to buy. When you go on vacation, you may checkmark the sites you want to visit in a guidebook directory. If you’ve got kids involved in a variety of activities, you’re likely to fill in your weekly calendar with the dates, times, and locations of where each of them has to be at any particular moment.
