Intelligent Communications takes the next step with calling in Teams

In September, we introduced a new vision for intelligent communications including plans to evolve Microsoft Teams into the primary client for calling and meetings in Office 365. As part of this, we are bringing comprehensive calling and meetings capabilities into Microsoft Teams, along with data and insights from the Microsoft Graph, and a strong roadmap of innovation to empower teams to achieve more.

  Easily view your calling historyToday we are releasing new calling capabilities in Teams, providing full featured dialing capabilities, complete with call history, hold/resume, speed dial, transfer, forwarding, caller ID masking, extension dialing, multi-call handling, simultaneous ringing, voicemail, and text telephone (TTY) support. You can expect this to roll out over the next few hours and should come soon to your tenant.

To add calling in Teams for your users, the first thing you need is Phone System (formerly Cloud PBX), which is included with Office 365 E5 and available as an add-on to other Office 365 plans. From there, you can subscribe to a Calling Plan (formerly known as PSTN Calling) for any number of users in your organization.

Together, a Calling Plan and Phone System in Office 365 create a phone system for your organization, giving each user a primary phone number and letting them make and receive phone calls to and from outside of your organization. This solution also allows your organization to shift away from expensive telephony hardware and simplifying by centralizing the management of your phone system.

With the addition of calling, Teams is an even more robust hub for teamwork — the single place for your content, contacts and communications including chat, meetings and calling in a modern, collaboration experience.

Getting started with calling in Teams
To get started with calling in Teams, please review our quick start guide. You can learn more about geographic availability of Calling Plans here.  We also invite you to join us live December 18, at 9 AM PDT on Teams On Air to hear guest Marc Pottier, Principal Program Manager discuss and demo calling plans in Microsoft Teams in more detail.

Infinidat embeds SAN, NAS replication in InfiniBox R4

Infinidat has checked off several roadmap items for its high-end InfiniBox storage system, including “near-zero impact” SAN synchronous replication and the ability to define quality of service for individual applications, tenants and subtenants.

The InfiniBox R4 upgrade also added asynchronous NAS replication and NAS directory quota management to combat file system sprawl. Those features are among more than 150 enhancements to the R4 operating system.

Infinidat claims InfiniBox unified arrays are faster than all-flash, although they store all data on hard disk drives. The modular design includes three controllers in an active-active-active configuration for high availability. InfiniBox is geared to enterprises with petabyte-scale storage, competing with high-end storage arrays from Dell EMC, NetApp, Hitachi Vantara, IBM and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

InfiniBox serves most I/O traffic from dynamic RAM (DRAM), and includes a small dose of flash as an acceleration tier. Artificial intelligence and machine learning tools orchestrate data tiering. The InfiniFlash system learns over time the best media placement to generate high hit rates out of DRAM.

Adding synchronous replication makes Infinidat a better play with hyper-scale enterprises and managed service providers, IDC storage analyst Eric Burgener said.

“Infinidat targets InfiniBox for dense workload consolidation,” Burgener said. “It was somewhat limited in that it only offered asynchronous replication, which does not give a zero [recovery point objective]. This was a gap in the product line that they needed to fill. Their customers are now going to be more comfortable taking most of their mission-critical applications and putting it on this platform.”

Infinidat custom IP protocol drives synchronous replication

Rather than SCSI-based replication, Infinidat wrote a custom IP-optimized protocol that requires fewer network hops to acknowledge writes. Replication occurs directly on the remote node that manages the data.

Infinidat also reduced metadata processing by carrying only 180 bytes for each 64K of data. The replication occurs close to the silicon using an approach similar to Remote Direct Memory Access.

Infinidat said its asynchronous replication delivers target write latency in the sub-400-millisecond range on nearby systems, and scales linearly to keep performance consistent as replicas are added.

The system is designed to prevent data loss as volumes are synchronized. Users can configure it to transparently fall back to asynchronous replication to handle failure scenarios for mission-critical applications.

Infinidat took its time to develop its own replication technique, rather than rush to add the feature, the company’s CMO Randy Arseneau said.

“This was a very complicated computer science and mathematics problem to solve,” Arseneau said. “It would have been easy for us to implement replication as a ‘me too’ feature using a legacy approach, but that would violate our prime directive. We will not implement features using a traditional bolt-on technique just to get something to market faster. We architect features to embed them in our core OS as a way to mitigate processing and resource consumption.”

Infinidat added NAS support in 2015. New asynchronous NAS replication in R4 enables a recovery point objective of 4 seconds. Infinidat uses a CPU-accelerated process called InfiniSnap that supports billions of snapshots per replicated file system. Replication mostly occurs in DRAM to avoid stalling I/O requests.

Infinidat quality of service takes cues from all-flash arrays

Infinidat also added NAS TreeQ as a tool for managing NAS directory quotas. It allows administrators to apply hard quotas across multiple file systems. Resources can be allocated for a specific application or project with reporting in InfiniMetrics.

Most all-flash arrays offer quality of service (QoS), although the feature usually isn’t a deal-breaker for most customers. All-flash systems typically have sufficient overhead for bursting workloads. QoS becomes critical as array takes on more workloads.

Infinidat QoS allows resources to be partitioned by tenant or volume within an InfiniBox system. Tenants can allocate resources to multiple nested subtenants for more granular control of storage resources. Having it built into InfiniBox is another must-have capability, Burgener said.

“Infinidat’s QoS capability allows them to set the service level at low, medium or high and quantitatively guarantee it can deliver the performance where it’s needed. This is an issue for service providers and for on-premises clouds as well,” Burgener said.

Use the Azure Custom Script Extension for your Azure VMs

It’s easy to execute custom scripts — including PowerShell scripts — in a VM running in on-premises Hyper-V hosts….

/**
* remove unnecessary class from ul
*/
$(“#inlineregform”).find( “ul” ).removeClass(“default-list”);

/**
* Replace “errorMessageInput” class with “sign-up-error-msg” class
*/
function renameErrorMsgClass() {
$(“.errorMessageInput”).each(function() {
if ($(this).hasClass(“hidden”)) {
$(this).removeClass(“errorMessageInput hidden”).addClass(“sign-up-error-msg hidden”);

$(this).removeClass(“errorMessageInput”).addClass(“sign-up-error-msg”);

});
}

/**

*/
function validateThis(v, form) {
var validateReturn = urValidation.validate(v, form);
renameErrorMsgClass();
return validateReturn;
}

/**
* DoC pop-up window js – included in moScripts.js which is not included in responsive page
*/

e.preventDefault();
});

All you need to do is create a script that the destination VM can support and then run it via PowerShell Direct or copy the script to the VM. Azure also supports executing custom scripts in Azure VMs, but the way you execute them is slightly different.

Azure Custom Script Extension is a plug-in designed to only work with Azure VMs. It can be used to execute scripts stored in an Azure blob container or in a valid URL that’s accessible by Azure Portal and PowerShell command lines. Before you execute scripts inside Azure VMs, you’ll be required to decide the source of the script and resource group name in which the Azure VM is located. If your script is stored in an Azure blob container, you’ll be required to supply the storage account name, storage account key and blob container where the script is located. By executing the command below, you’re executing a script stored in an Azure blob container named VMScripts:

Set-AzureRMVMCustomScriptExtension –ResourceGroupName “RSGroup1” –Location “Central US” –VMName “SQLVM” -StorageAccountName “StorageAccount1” –StorageAccountKey {StorageAccountKeyHere} –FileName “ThisScript.PS1” –ContainerName “VMScripts”

If you have a script available in other locations, such as GitHub, you’ll be required to download the script from GitHub to the Azure VM as it’s shown in the command below:

Set-AzureRMVMCustomScriptExtension –ResourceGroupName “RSGroup1” –VMName “SQLVM” –Name “VMScripts” –FileURI {Complete Script Path here} –Run “ScriptFile.PS1” –Location “Central US”

Azure Custom Script Extension is available for both Azure Windows and Linux VMs. You can execute any PowerShell script in Azure Windows VMs and any Bash scripts in Azure Linux VMs.

Troubleshooting issues

If you face any issues during execution of the scripts, you might want to check execution logs found under C:WindowsAzureLogsPlugins
Microsoft.Compute.CustomScriptExtension in Azure VMs. If the script failed to execute, make sure the script was downloaded to Azure VMs from either a storage blob container or URL. Scripts are downloaded to the C:
PackagesPluginsMicrosoft.Compute.CustomScriptExtension1.*Downloads location in the Azure VM.

You might want to execute custom scripts using Azure Custom Script Extension to support post-deployment configurations, such as configuring OS settings and installing line-of-business applications.
