2013 went RTM

A couple of days ago, both Exchange and Lync 2013 went RTM. What kind of impact this will have on the industry is yet to be unfolded. What we do know is that Microsoft is pushing towards the cloud with a closer integration and a seemingly seamless experience (pun intended). In my book, the biggest news will have to be the offline feature of Outlook Web App in Exchange 2013 which just turns the table upside-down.

Oh, there's Sharepoint and Office too but I'll leave that for others to mention...

Windows Server 2012 Launch

Just came back from the Windows Server 2012 Launch at a packed Rival in Stockholm. Lots of interesting topics were covered and indeed a few surprises too. Overall, a well organized event by the people at TrueSec. One of the surprises was the fact that Hyper-V now have the ability to allow virtual machines to use hardware accelerated SSL offloading. Another interesting point was the power of the new PowerShell 3.0 (pun intended) which seem to open up endless opportunities with new workflow feature. Great stuff!
