Microsoft shares Windows Server 2012 experience
Manama, December 19, 2012
Microsoft inaugurated today the Windows Server 2012 and Infrastructure Management IT Pro Camp, an expert-led hands-on training event for IT professionals in Bahrain.
The two-day event aims to address issues and workloads that IT professionals tackle on a daily basis, said a statement.
Microsoft is hosting the event in collaboration with its cloud computing strategic partner HP.
Delivering the opening keynote speech, Tareq Hijazi, regional country manager for Microsoft Bahrain and Oman, said: “We are committed to providing IT professionals information and data about our latest products, software and innovations, as well as hands-on demos and interactive discussions with our experts, our partners such as HP and our clients like Alba.
“The operating system has always been the heartbeat of IT and is now undergoing a renaissance in the new world of continuous cloud services, connected devices and big data,” said Hijazi.
“Microsoft’s unique legacy in the most widely used operating systems, applications, and cloud services allow us to deliver the Cloud OS, based on Windows Server and Windows Azure, helping customers achieve a data center without boundaries.”
Microsoft built Windows Server 2012 from the cloud up, applying its experience operating global data centres that rely on hundreds of thousands of servers to deliver more than 200 cloud services. Windows Server 2012 expands the definition of a server operating system and adds significant new advancements in virtualization, storage, networking and automation. In combination with Windows Azure and System Center, Windows Server 2012 empowers customers to manage and deliver applications and services across private, hosted and public clouds.
Customers can use their existing skills and investments in systems management, application development, database, identity and virtualization to take advantage of Windows Server 2012 and realize the promise of cloud computing. Many enterprise customers are already seeing tremendous value in early deployments, said the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
