According to 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 to 10

MS Windows Server 2008 R2 became 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 2012/2016 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 2012/2016 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 the new versions of Windows Server and Windows Azure. Windows Server 2012/2016 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 and Windows Azure.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012/2016 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 for monitoring and responding to application errors, physical server errors, resource changes, and security issues. Windows Server 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 addressed many of the problems associated with MS Vista. There is a much faster boot time, shutdown, and enhanced facilities when it is a client in a Microsoft Active Directory Domain. MS Windows 7 was optimized for Internet search with MS Bing.

The Windows 8 operating system was 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. The user interface 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 has 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 enabled lightweight form factors and extended battery life. It included 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 has been incentivizing the upgrading and transitioning to its Windows 10 operating system. During 2015 there was a free upgrade was available from Windows 7, and Windows 8. Free support has been terminated for Windows XP and Vista. The Windows interface and development platform has been expanded to support both desktop and Microsoft mobile devices. MS Windows UWP: Unified Windows Platform and Xamarin can be used for coding both Microsoft and the Apple iOS and Android platforms. In relation to Apple and Google, Microsoft has a relatively small market share. The company is aggressively simplifying its entire platform under "one Windows" The Microsoft vision is to make its next iteration of Windows run on every desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. Microsoft has been making significant changes in how its developer community will deliver, manage and build next-generation software for every device -- with a single store and one way for consumers to download and access programs across screens. Starting in 2018, the MS Edge web browser can be installed on the Apple and Android operating systems. MS Edge will be replacing MS Internet Explorer.

MS Windows Server 2012/2016, SharePoint Server, and PowerShell have been enhanced to accommodate open source software Ė Linux-variant operating systems, MS SQL Server on Linux, and hypervisor/cloud containerization. This software stack and .NET development platform have been strategic assets instrumental in Microsoft Azure becoming a major player leader in cloud computing

MS Operating Systems and Internetworking Training by SYS-ED

SYS-ED has been been teaching Microsoft operating systems and networks since 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. 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 selectively is integrated into courseware.

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.

Courseware for Teaching

Prospective clients can elect to utilize a textbook or CETi courseware as a framework for the training. The classic principles of adult learning are applied to the content, translating subject matter into performance objectives, narrative descriptions, and diagrams which explain the architecture, demonstrate the administrative tools, and provide troubleshooting guidelines. The courseware incorporates industry standard content and consultancy derived techniques for installing, administering, and optimizing the Microsoft Corporation implementation of Active Directory with open source operating systems, mobile devices, and third party software.
