Microsoft has announced a range of new products and services at Ignite Conference, which is being held this week in Chicago. Some examples are the next generation of Windows management, Microsoft Office, hybrid cloud infrastructure and SQL Server.
In this post we are going to focus on some the new so called Intelligent cloud solutions by Microsoft:
-Next-generation hybrid cloud. In preview this summer, Microsoft Azure Stack brings the Azure user experience and both infrastructure and platform-as-a-service capabilities into customers’ datacenters. With Azure Stack IT teams can easily blend enterprise applications with modern, distributed applications and services while maintaining centralized oversight. Built on the same core technology as Azure, Azure Stack extends Microsoft’s investments in secure, more flexible software-defined infrastructure.
The next preview of Windows Server 2016 is now available, providing a premium platform for enterprise and cloud applications, with technologies such as Nano Server, a lightweight installation option.
Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) is a cloud-based solution that extends System Center capabilities for management across almost any hybrid cloud, including Azure, third-party clouds such as Amazon Web Services, Windows Server, Linux, VMware or OpenStack. OMS extends System Center 2016, both are also available in preview this week.
SQL Server 2016, in preview this summer, takes a major leap forward with a database and analytics platform that provides breakthrough performance for mission-critical applications and deeper insights on any data across on-premises and cloud. Key capabilities include enhanced in-memory technologies with real-time operational analytics, new security and encryption technologies, built-in advanced analytics with the R language, and mobile BI for on-premises data. The new Stretch Database capability is an industry first that allows for cost-effective access to historical data by dynamically stretching data to Microsoft Azure.
