כבר שוחחנו רבות, בע"פ, בכתובים, מאחורי מצלמה ומאחורי פודיום על כך שהעולם שלנו השתנה (וממשיך בצעדי ענק...) בתחילת המילניום התרכזנו בעבודה המקומית הבודדת שלנו בין המחשב הנייח במקום העבודה שלנו לנייח האחר בשולחן העבודה בביתנו. והיום, עשור וחצי אחרי אנו שואפים להיות עם מכשיר אחד, נייד ככל האפשר או לפחות מסונכרן בין הנייד הגדול לנייד הקטן וכזה המאפשר לנו גם ליהנות ברמה הפרטית-חברתית וגם לעבוד ולהגיע למשאבי הארגון שלנו. מיקרוסופט, שלפני כמעט שנתיים הדגישה את המעבר שלה מ"חברת תוכנה" דרך "חברת שירותים ו-Devices" אל "מיקרוסופט אחת (One Microsoft)" המתרכזת במיוחד בתשתיות הענן השונות, מציעה כעת חבילה להעצמת...

Sunday, September 14, 2014

ב-14/07/2015 זה קורה! לא מדובר על הכרזה חגיגית, אלא על סיום התמיכה של Microsoft ב-Windows Server 2003/R2. אין לכם מה להרגיש לבד. עדיין ניתן למצוא בהמון ארגונים מספר שרתים עם מערכת זו, אך אין מה לעשות. הגיע הזמן להיפרד וכדאי לעשות זאת במהרה. בניגוד לתחנות עבודה רגילות עם Windows XP שאנחנו אומרים לעצמנו “לא נורא. אז לא תהיה לנו תמיכה”, בסביבות שרתים המשמעויות הן קריטיות הרבה יותר! משמעויות סיום התמיכה ב-Server 2003 עבודה בטוחה עבודה על שרתי Server 2003 לא עומדת בביקורת תאימות הן בסביבה פיזית או וירטואלית וגם עבור שרתי SBS. יצרנים ובתי תוכנה לא לא בהכרח יספקו תמיכה בגרסאות עדכניות של תוכנות / דרייברים....
