MS Windows, SharePoint Server, and Virtualization
Microsoft Operating Systems and Internetworking

Microsoft operating systems and networks continue to play a leading role in global internetworking. However, for the first time there has been a decline in sales with the MS Windows operating system family. The next hardware driven wave of computer technology has commenced.


According to leading industry studies, the dynamic growth of desktop personal computing era is over and non-PC devices capable of running software applications will be outselling PCs. And there are other changes occurring in the market which are driving Microsoft strategies for its operating and network operating system software: 1- Increased utilization of the Linux-variant operating systems. 2- Client requirements to implement server and desktop virtualization for reducing energy consumption and controlling costs. 3- BYOD requirements and the management of smartphones and tablet devices. 4- The emergence of software as a service and cloud computing software models.

Microsoft Windows Server and Windows 7 and 8

MS Windows Server 2008 R2 is the industry leading server infrastructure. Virtualization tools, management facilities and Windows 7/8 integration provide an efficient platform to manage a data center. MS Windows Server includes the ability to integrate Novell's SUSE Linux. Group Policy can be used for managing software updates on Linux clients.

The Windows Server 2012 can be used to build and run symmetrical and hybrid applications across on-premises private clouds, and hosted and Windows Azure public clouds. Different levels of connectivity allow for hybrid scenarios which enable the integration of applications between Windows Server 2012 and Windows Azure: Service Bus and Azure Connect. There is virtual machine portability between on-premises and a cloud. It is implemented through System Center or the services portal to provision, manage, and move virtual machines between Windows Server 2012 and Windows Azure. Windows Server 2012 also is a scalable, elastic application platform. Pub/Sub Messaging, integration, and workflow technologies are used to build loosely coupled applications which scale elastically both on and between Windows Server 2012 and Windows Azure.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V is an entry level virtualization platform. Hyper-V is built into the Windows Server software stack and integrates with the Virtual Machine Manager component of System Center 2012 for monitoring and responding to application errors, physical server errors, resource changes, and security issues. Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V provides IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service and function within a private cloud. The Microsoft Azure cloud supports persistent VMs: virtual machines which enables users to run Linux distributions: openSUSE 12.1, CentOS 6.2, Ubuntu 12.04 and SLES: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SP2.

The Microsoft Windows 7 client operating system software addresses many of the problems associated with MS Vista. There is a much faster boot time, shutdown, and enhanced facilities when MS Windows 7 is a client in a Microsoft Active Directory Domain. MS Windows 7 has been optimized for Internet search with MS Bing.

The Windows 8 operating system is a competitive response by Microsoft to provide cloud-based interaction comparable to the experience available through Apple iPhones and iPads and Google Android open source smartphone and tablets. It will have a user interface which reflects the increased role of mobile endpoint devices. It offers a merged solution across desktop and mobile platforms. There are two editions of Windows 8 for 32- and 64- bit x86 processors.

Windows 8 Includes an updated Windows Explorer, Task Manager, better multi-monitor support, and the ability to dynamically switch languages.
Windows 8 Pro Includes domain connectivity along with encryption, virtualization, and pc management.

Windows RT is a single edition version of the Windows 8 operating system pre-installed on PCs and tablets for ARM processors which enables lightweight form factors and extended battery life. It includes touch-optimized desktop versions of the new Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Microsoft has been expending resources to promote and develop a new generation of cloud-, touch- enabled, and web-connected apps for Windows RT.

Microsoft SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint: Foundation, Server, and Framework is a collection of services for Windows Server 2008 and higher to share information and data. It provides a platform and common framework for document management, storing documents, and collaboration applications. SharePoint Server 2010 is built on the SharePoint Foundation. Management tools are provided to SharePoint sites which extend enterprise-level capabilities: sites, communities, content, search, insights, and composites. SharePoint Designer provides the tools to customize SharePoint sites and create reporting tools and application templates. SharePoint Foundation, SharePoint Server, and SharePoint Designer are collectively known as SharePoint Products.

MS Operating Systems and Internetworking Training by SYS-ED

SYS-ED has been been teaching Microsoft operating systems and networks since the days when Novell NetWare was the leading network operating system and DOS and Windows clients needed to have their upper memory blocks manually configured and .INI files edited. SYS-ED monitors Microsoft's strategic initiatives and software updates. Our staff averages 25+ years experience with operating systems and networking and have a multi-disciplinary skillset with the Linux, UNIX, and IBM mainframe operating systems which interoperate with Microsoft operating systems and networks. Equally as important, SYS-ED is independent from Microsoft Corporation. We gather data on Microsoft software and open source software, review white papers, and evaluate benchmarks. This information is selectively integrated into our courseware and distributed through SYS-ED websites.

SYS-ED will not accept a Microsoft operating system or internetworking training assignment without a consultation with the prospective client organization. We review the background of the employees to be trained, operating environment, documentation, and project specifications. The information is used to prototype the client internetworking environment, map the performance objectives to exercises, and tailor the hands-on portion of the course. We then prepare a training strategy: lesson plan, modular courseware, training aids, and validation assessment. And when are not confident that we can provide a superior training outcome, will politely turn down an assignment.

Upon completion of a course, SYS-ED clients are invited to submit Microsoft operating system, networking, and internetworking questions. Our system consultants and technology partners answer, explain, and where applicable reference source documentation. Questions are reviewed and answered on a first-come/first serve-basis.

MS Windows PowerShell and Scripting

The MS PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language. Built on the .NET Framework, Windows PowerShell enables information technology support personnel and developers to automate and control the administration of MS Windows family clients and applications: services, processes, event logs, certificates, and registry. The command-line tools use standard naming conventions and common parameters for sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.  In addition to HTML and XML, there are tools for managing Microsoft Windows data in different stores and formats: ADSI: Active Directory Service Interfaces, WMI: Windows Management Instrumentation, COM: Component Object Model, ADO: and ActiveX Data Objects. An extensible interface is provided which enables independent software vendors and enterprise developers to build custom cmdlets to meet application and system administration requirements. MS Windows Server 2012 provides a significant increase in the number and variety of PowerShell commandlets which can be used in the Active Directory Administrative Center and managed in a History Viewer. 1

Teaching is Our Business
Most computer training companies are divisions of large software or consulting companies. Not SYS-ED. Our goal is to provide quality computer training for highly motivated professionals - no more and no less. Because we're independent, we're free to concentrate on teaching - and since 1980 we have been doing it very well.

Our Teachers Know How to Teach
SYS-ED instructors combine teaching skills with broad practical experience as consultants. Our system consultants have been working with DOS, Microsoft Windows and network operating systems since their initial release and equally as important average 30 years of experience in information technology for business enterprise: operating systems, administration, and programming. And know how to teach it. We teach not only "how to", but "why", building a solid foundation in fundamentals and insights into advanced materials. After a course, they're available to answer questions.

Enrollment - SYS-ED Microsoft Operating System and Network Courses are NOT for Everyone
No one is allowed to enroll in a SYS-ED course, without a consultation with our Director of Education. We review the operational objectives and project specifications for the organization evaluating whether to send its employee for the training. The employee is only allowed to register if they have the background corresponding to the appropriate learning path.

MS Operating Systems and Network Training - Distance-learning or at Your Office
SYS-ED MS operating system and networking industry standard courses are provided using a combination of distance-learning and classroom instruction. Client location courses can include the identical workshops, case studies, and hands-on approach as the distance-learning service offered through the SYS-ED schedule.
