Microsoft Ignite 2018 conference coverage

Introduction

Microsoft continues to gain market momentum fueled in part by an internal culture shift and the growing popularity of the Azure cloud platform that powers the company’s popular Office 365 product.

When CEO Satya Nadella took the helm in 2014, he made a concerted effort to turn the company away from its proprietary background to win over developers and enterprises with cloud and DevOps ambitions.

To reinforce this new agenda, Microsoft acquired GitHub, the popular software development platform, for $7.5 billion in June and expanded its developer-friendly offerings in Azure — from Kubernetes management to a Linux-based distribution for use with IoT devices. But many in IT have long memories and don’t easily forget the company’s blunders, which can wipe away any measure of good faith at a moment’s notice.

PowerShell, the popular automation tool, continues to experience growing pains after Microsoft converted it to an open source project that runs on Linux and macOS systems. As Linux workloads on Azure continue to climb — around 40% of Azure’s VMs run on Linux according to some reports — and Microsoft releases Linux versions of on-premises software, PowerShell Core is one way Microsoft is addressing the needs of companies with mixed OS environments.

While this past year solidified Microsoft’s place in the cloud and open source arenas, Nadella wants the company to remain on the cutting edge and incorporate AI into every aspect of the business. The steady draw of income from its Azure product and Office 365 — more than 135 million users — as well as its digital transformation agenda, have proven successful so far. So what’s in store for 2019?

This Microsoft Ignite 2018 guide gives you a look at the company’s tactics over the past year along with news from the show to help IT pros and administrators prepare for what’s coming next on the Microsoft roadmap.

For Sale – Lots of bits and pieces (Clearout) + Poweredge 2950

Hello All,

It’s clearout time again, lots of odds and sods I’m looking to shift. Payment by Paypal or collection in the Southampton/Portsmouth area is welcome. All prices do not include delivery.

First up is a pair of monitors.

HP L1906 – 1280×1024, works fine but theres a fairly large scratch in the top right corner (ref photos for more info). £5.
Hansol H750 – 1280×1024, has a line of red pixels down the centre. Free to a good home, it’ll do the job for managing a server.

Primochill 240mm CTR D5 Reservoir. Needed a shorter tube for my reservoir however you can’t buy the tubes seperately in the UK so I had to buy a whole new res just for the tube. Therfore whilst the tube is a few years old the rings and caps are brand new and never used. Will come with accessories. £45.

2x2GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 with cooler. These are 1600Mhz C9, going by Ebay prices these are still worth £25 so I’ll start there but feel free to make offers. £25.

6 Corsair drive sledges. These came out of an 800D, one has a broken tab but the other 5 are fine. £5 for the lot.

8 Hot Swap caddy’s for DataDirect servers. May fit other servers I’m not sure. £2 each.

Corsair 800D front panel connectors. Free to a good home if someone has a use for it. I have a brand new front case facia from Corsair as well if anyone is in need of that.

4x140mm and 1x120mm rubber mounts. These are really good I just don’t have a need for them anymore. £10 for the lot.

6x Enermax Apolish blue 120mm fans. These are really nice fans asthetically and very quiet. I have 6 of them that need a good clean but otherwise work perfectly. £18 for the lot.

4x140mm and 2x120mm Corsair fans. These are just stock case fans. £10 for the lot.

120mm Corsair from a H series cooler. £4.

Stock Coolermaster 140mm fan. £1.

1x140mm and 3x120mm Cubitek LED fans. Not sure what colour these are. £7.50 for the lot.

Lamptron black/orange LED anti vandal switch with wiring. Bought for a modding project but never used. £10.

Couple of old hard drives. Will be scanned to ensure they are working fine prior to payment. £5 each.

Hipoint card reader. Used in my old build, worked perfectly and a cracking little card reader but no use to me now. £1.

8 pin to 8+4pin, 3 pin extension and a couple of IDE cables. Free to a good home if anyone needs any.

Universal backplate. Pretty sure this is for Intel, not sure on sockets though. Free to a good home.

PCI-E blanking plates. Some from a few Corsair cases and some from a Fractal case. £0.50 each.

Dell Poweredge 2950. My old home server, specs are as follows:

2x Intel Xeon X5355 2.66Ghz Quad Core CPU’s.

16GB DDR2 800Mhz ECC.

Perc 6i RAID card.

6×3.5″ drive backplane.

4x 72GB 10K RPM SAS drives.

Both PSU’s working.

Originally had a Perc 5i, DAT72 tape drive, SCSI card and 4×3.5″ backplane that I will throw in with it.

Looking for £90 for it all, collection only unless you want to sort a pallet for it.

Bubm organiser case. Was bought for me to be used as a cable organiser but I didn’t find much use for it. £5.

Oneplus 3/3T screen protector. Came as two, used one then my phone was stolen so no need for this now. £1.

Pictures: PC Clearout

If I find any more stuff I’ll add it as I go. If you need any more information drop a comment or message me and I’ll do my best to get back to you. As said before postage is not included but of course will be combined for multiple items.

Cheers.
