Container Images are now out for Windows Server version 1709!

With the release of Windows Server version 1709 also come Windows Server Core and Nano Server base OS container images.

It is important to note that while older versions of the base OS container images will work on a newer host (with Hyper-V isolation), the opposite is not true. Container images based on Windows Server version 1709 will not work on a host using Windows Server 2016.  Read more about the different versions of Windows Server.

We’ve also made some changes to our tagging scheme so you can more easily specify which version of the container images you want to use.  From now on, the “latest” tag will follow the releases of the current LTSC product, Windows Server 2016. If you want to keep up with the latest patches for Windows Server 2016, you can use:

“microsoft/nanoserver”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore”

in your dockerfiles to get the most up-to-date version of the Windows Server 2016 base OS images. You can also continue using specific versions of the Windows Server 2016 base OS container images by using the tags specifying the build, like so:

“microsoft/nanoserver:10.0.14393.1770”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:10.0.14393.1770”.

If you would like to use base OS container images based on Windows Server version 1709, you will have to specify that with the tag. In order to get the most up-to-date base OS container images of Windows Server version 1709, you can use the tags:

“microsoft/nanoserver:1709”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:1709”

And if you would like a specific version of these base OS container images, you can specify the KB number that you need on the tag, like this:

“microsoft/nanoserver:1709_KB4043961”
or
“microsoft/windowsservercore:1709_KB4043961”.

We hope that this tagging scheme will ensure that you always choose the image that you want and need for your environment. Please let us know in the comments if you have any feedback for us.

Note: We currently do not intend to use the build numbers to specify Windows Server version 1709 container images. We will only be using the KB schema specified above for the tagging of these images. Let us know if you have feedback about this as well

Regards,
Ender

For Sale – iMac 27” 5k, late 2015, big spec with long warranty

The time has come to sell on my iMac. I bought it a few months ago from its original owner, I have the receipt, which shows it was bought direct from Apple in 2016. I am therefore the second owner.

I have added some RAM and the AppleCare Protection Plan.

Full spec:

MK482LL/A, Model A1419, ID 17.1
27″ Retina 5K display, 5120×2880 LED backlit IPS DCI-P3.
3.3GHz Intel quad-core i5 CPU (turbo charged to 3.9GHz), 6th generation.
16GB 1867MHz DDR3 memory. Add more via the user accessible rear slots (2 free), up to 32GB (officially) or 64GB (unofficially).
512GB Apple SSD. I thought a Fusion drive was quick but this is something else! Blackmagic Speed Test app results speak for themselves – see pic. Boots up to desktop in under 20 seconds. Phenominally fast, will handle anything you throw at it.
AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB graphics card.
MacOS Sierra v10.12.6. Clean install with known “admin” user and password or I can reset the iMac so you can setup from scratch.
Magic Keyboard and Magic Wireless Mouse 2 plus lightning charge cable – no batteries required. Mouse has a couple of smudge/scuff marks on top (see pic) but nothing that prevents normal use. Keyboard excellent with minor scuffs to the back – can’t seem to capture them with my camera.
Comes with inner white box and outer brown shipping box, plus original purchase receipt via an email attachment.

Apple are asking £2,069 on their refurbished site for this exact spec, with just a years warranty so as well as being far cheaper, you’re also getting around 22 months warranty.

The iMac is near perfect condition, just a tiny (really tiny!) mark to the top side of the base plate (pic 9) – can’t be seen unless you put your face right down to it. The mouse has a few scuff marks to the top side, the keyboard has a few scuffs to the underside.

Will happily transfer the AppleCare to the new owner, though in actual fact, the AppleCare ‘moves’ with the iMac. Simple process, fully endorsed by Apple and takes 3-5 days.

I thought a 2TB Fusion drive was quick but this 512GB SSD is even faster, booting to the desktop in under 20 seconds. A truly capable machine that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. See Blackmagic speed test results in second post below, likewise proof of AppleCare.

Collection only – that way you’ll get a chance to try it out before taking it away, plus I can’t be doing with couriers and the risks associated with it. Likewise cash/BT only, no Paypal. Has been fully reset with known ‘admin’ user and password.

Price and currency: £1595
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: BT or cash on collection
Location: Saffron Walden
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

Cloud-based infrastructure meets networking at ONUG fall conference

The cloud has come, bringing with it a torrent of change within the networking industry.

At least, that’s what the forecast looks like for ONUG, according to the group’s co-founder and co-chairman, Nick Lippis. Formerly the Open Networking User Group, ONUG officially rebranded itself, as it shed its data center roots to reflect the steps companies are taking to embrace hybrid cloud-based infrastructures, he said.

“ONUG started five years ago focused on the networking space, mostly around the data center,” Lippis said. “In 2016, there was an inflection point in thinking.” Now, he said ONUG’s mandate extends beyond networking, moving to other aspects, such as security, analytics, monitoring and social networking.

To that end, Lippis said ONUG’s fall conference agenda will address these changes, especially since its user community has actually started to transition to off-premises networking environments.

“What the community is really looking for is a user narrative around digital transformation and the adoption of cloud technologies,” he said. Creating this user narrative is important, because there are conflicting thoughts about cloud-based infrastructures.

On one side, the vendor community claims migrating workloads to the cloud will lower costs, increase agility and provide users with a global footprint. But users in the ONUG community — primarily Fortune Global 2000 companies — find that while the cloud provides agility and the global footprint, it can be more expensive. Security and reliability impediments also stand in the way of migration, he said.

Nick LippisNick Lippis

“This has forced large enterprises to build their own private clouds,” Lippis said. “Those private clouds are based upon cloud technologies — the whole software-defined space and commoditization of hardware. They’ve been building these private [clouds] for the last couple of years, and now, it’s really about taking that private infrastructure and building bridges to various cloud providers.”

SD-WAN could be one such bridge, he said, adding that ONUG’s SD-WAN working group will publish at the conference an API engineered to allow companies to connect to multiple cloud providers through the technology.

“Here’s an API so orchestration systems can call into an SD-WAN environment and create connectivity for their workloads,” he said. The connectivity will be cross-platform, so the SD-WAN API will work with Amazon, Microsoft, branch offices or mixed vendors, for example.

“We look forward to that being an automated way in which you can use SD-WAN, not just for connectivity with an enterprise — connecting branches and data centers — but also for cloud connection, so it becomes part of the hybrid cloud architecture,” Lippis said.

Welcome to the cloud-based infrastructure era

The industry is in the beginning of a new era, according to Lippis.

“We had the mainframe era that provided automation for corporations and then the internet era. Now, we’re at the beginnings of the cloud-based era,” he said, comparing 2017 to 1998, when corporations began to rapidly adopt the use of the internet to support their businesses.

This change has implications for both IT budget planning and IT workforce skill sets.

“[For enterprise budget spending], all the money that is now in internet infrastructure will [be] packaged as a toxic asset to get it off their books from a capital expense point of view,” Lippis said. “[This will] free up capital to invest in cloud-based technologies and their cloud initiatives and digital transformation strategies.”

The IT workforce will require a major reskilling and retooling.

“In order to really get the advantages of digital transformation and to get a good business outcome in this digital world, you need really good leadership — executive management leadership — and you need new IT skills,” he said.

Vendor-specific skill sets will be less in demand. And while coding will be important, Lippis said there are other important factors.

[The IT workforce] will have to understand policy management and big data analytics, because that’s the way this infrastructure is going to be managed.
Nick Lippisco-founder and co-chairman, ONUG

“[The IT workforce] will have to understand policy management and big data analytics, because that’s the way this infrastructure is going to be managed,” Lippis said.

On top of the IT budget and skill sets, Lippis said it is important for C-suite and IT business strategies to align with each other. If they don’t, digital transformation and cloud strategies won’t succeed.

“What happens is the strategic investment for the digital transformation initiative is not there, the organization doesn’t get restructured because there isn’t that level of insight from the CEO, and business processes don’t change,” he said. “So, digital transformation fails.”

A look into the ONUG conference agenda

The ONUG fall conference, set for Oct. 17 to 18 in New York City, will cover these issues and more, Lippis said. The Great Discussion, featuring executives from General Electric, eBay and Morgan Stanley, will showcase a panel debating whether enterprises should buy or build their IT infrastructures.

The conference will also feature the Right Stuff Innovation Awards, recognizing enterprises that design the best proofs of concept with various vendor products and services.

“We want to guide that money [from ONUG’s annual spend] to companies that are addressing the requirements the Fortune Global 2000 need in order to deliver digital transformation,” he said.

For Sale – Apple hardware – iMac 5K, Apple Magic Keyboard (wireles with UK Numeric Pad) and Magic Mouse 2

The time has come to sell on my iMac. I bought it a few months ago from its original owner, I have the receipt, which shows it was bought direct from Apple in 2016. I am therefore the second owner.

I have added some RAM and the AppleCare Protection Plan.

Full spec:

MK482LL/A, Model A1419, ID 17.1
27″ Retina 5K display, 5120×2880 LED backlit IPS DCI-P3.
3.3GHz Intel quad-core i5 CPU (turbo charged to 3.9GHz), 6th generation.
16GB 1867MHz DDR3 memory. Add more via the user accessible rear slots (2 free), up to 32GB (officially) or 64GB (unofficially).
512GB Apple SSD. I thought a Fusion drive was quick but this is something else! Blackmagic Speed Test app results speak for themselves – see pic. Boots up to desktop in under 20 seconds. Phenominally fast, will handle anything you throw at it.
AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB graphics card.
MacOS Sierra v10.12.6. Clean install with known “admin” user and password or I can reset the iMac so you can setup from scratch.
Magic Keyboard and Magic Wireless Mouse 2 plus lightning charge cable – no batteries required. Mouse has a couple of smudge/scuff marks on top (see pic) but nothing that prevents normal use. Keyboard excellent with minor scuffs to the back – can’t seem to capture them with my camera.
Comes with inner white box and outer brown shipping box, plus original purchase receipt via an email attachment.

Apple are asking £2,069 on their refurbished site for this exact spec, with just a years warranty so as well as being far cheaper, you’re also getting around 22 months warranty.

The iMac is near perfect condition, just a tiny (really tiny!) mark to the top side of the base plate (pic 9) – can’t be seen unless you put your face right down to it. The mouse has a few scuff marks to the top side, the keyboard has a few scuffs to the underside.

Will happily transfer the AppleCare to the new owner, though in actual fact, the AppleCare ‘moves’ with the iMac. Simple process, fully endorsed by Apple and takes 3-5 days.

I thought a 2TB Fusion drive was quick but this 512GB SSD is even faster, booting to the desktop in under 20 seconds. A truly capable machine that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. See Blackmagic speed test results in second post below, likewise proof of AppleCare.

Collection only – that way you’ll get a chance to try it out before taking it away, plus I can’t be doing with couriers and the risks associated with it. Likewise cash/BT only, no Paypal. Has been fully reset with known ‘admin’ user and password.

Price and currency: £1595
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: BT or cash on collection
Location: Saffron Walden
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected
