System Center 2016 & Windows Server 2016: Rolling out the Upgrades

System Center 2016

Hi all! As you can see from the title of this blog, it’s all about System Center 2016 and Windows Server 2016. Versions 2012 are so last year! In the new and updated version we’ll see some cool enhancements.

For Windows Server 2016:

  • Upgrades for Hyper-V and Storage clusters will roll out, so updates and operating systems are implemented faster.
  • You’ll also get compute resiliency, so VM’s can continue running even if the compute cluster fabric service fails.
  • Finally, Storage Replica updates for synchronous storage replication for affordable backup and disaster recovery.

So in conclusion, while we can state that we have no idea what we have just said, we think we can safely say that these updates translate into:

  • We feel the need… the need for speed! (Thanks Tom Cruise)!
  • I got the Power! (hearing that 90’s tune in our head, while we dance in spandex).
  • Too much money spent on backup and disaster recovery — need more of that bling? Well here are some wise words from a very wise man:

“Money doesn’t make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million”

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Ah, the simple things in life. (We know this made no sense, but it’s a pretty baller statement coming from DA TERMINATOR)!

I haven’t forgotten about System Center! This platform will also receive the following updates (we will translate of course):

  • Improved Linux Management, which includes DSC support, native SSH support, and improved LAMP stack monitoring.
  • Software Defined Datacenter management.
  • Cloud and workload management for Azure, Office 365, SQL, and Exchange.

Our Translation:

  • Support – we got support!
  • ?????
  • Cloud and workload management for Azure, Office 365, SQL, and Exchange.

Yep, we think it’s safe to say that we got the translations down pat (reading this, does anyone keep seeing the green webs from the Matrix? We keep seeing Keanu Reeves bending backwards).

However, if you want more info on all these new updates go here, here, here, or here, and read all about it! In addition, if you’re still using versions 2012, no worries. We offer some great training for System Center 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Check us out! Our instructors are much smarter than the person writing this blog, and can get you to be the coolest IT person in your department! The ladies will love you, if not, your boss will!

Cheers from Solartech!
