Planning For The New Windows Server Cadence [64480]
Data Center Knowledge, June 23rd 2017

"The next version of Windows Server will let you run Linux containers using Hyper-V isolation (and connect to them with bash scripts), encrypt network segments on software-defined networks and deploy the Host Guardian Service as a Shielded VM rather than needing a three-node physical cluster.

Data deduplication for ReFS means Storage Spaces Direct will have 50 percent better disk utilization. Multi-tenancy for Remote Desktop Services Hosting means you can host multiple clients from a single deployment, and virtual machine load balancing is now OS and application aware, so you can prioritize app performance as you balance the load between multiple hosts..."

InfoWorld, June 15th 2017

"Every wizened Unix hacker will have his or her own special tool set for using the command line for dev-fu. Here are mine...

The shell is your friend. But many developers don't really know the shell, the Unix or Linux command-line environment available in several operating systems. (Bash is the best known, but there are others.)

Some of you, when you transitioned from Windows to Mac, took your (slow) clickety habits with you, not realizing that the power laid in that app called Terminal hidden under Applications somewhere. Some of you have been shelling into 'the server' to tweak a setting or two without realizing that you could automate your life away without even cracking a devops tool..."

Forget The GUI: The Return Of The Command Line [64277]
InfoWorld, June 13th 2017

Corporate legends aside, Windows on both the desktop and server have long been the province of GUIs, point-and-click experiences driving everything from files on desktop PCs to managing entire virtual networks in the public cloud. That was all very well when you were dealing with tens of PCs and a handful of servers in an office. It even still worked for client-server enterprise applications or a small farm of web servers/
