Azure Stack HCI and Azure Kubernetes Service can be free for Windows Server customers. Microsoft hopes that price will encourage you to stick around

Microsoft last week extended its Azure Hybrid Benefit to some on-prem workloads.…

As the software colossus explains in the Azure Hybrid Benefit FAQ, the scheme "lets you bring your existing on-premises Windows Server and SQL Server licences with active Software Assurance or subscriptions to Azure." Once you get to Azure, Microsoft offers better pricing for software licenses.

Last week Microsoft announced an "extension" of the Azure Hybrid Benefit so that "customers with Windows Server Software Assurance or a Cloud Solution Provider subscription will be able to use Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) on Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI in their own datacenters or edge infrastructure at no additional cost."

That reveals two shifts: the extension of the Azure Hybrid Benefit into on-prem and edge operations; and the giveaway of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) on Windows Server and Azure Stack HCI. These are major changes.

Microsoft's rationale for the first shift is that AKS and Azure Stack HCI are hybrid cloud workloads, so the logic of the Azure Hybrid Benefit kind of mostly applies.

The reasoning behind the second is that adopting AKS or Azure Stack HCI will almost certainly be done in the context of modernizing applications and/or infrastructure. Discounting the platforms Microsoft wants you to migrate to is a transparent means of making alternatives more expensive.

Which is pricing-led marketing – business as usual.

But Microsoft's announcement snuck in a mention of one other recent licensing change: the virtual core licensing option Windows Server, which made it far easier to acquire the OS to run in clouds.

Microsoft spun this "Flexible Virtualization Benefit" as delivering on customers' desires, but the reality was that the European Union was set to punish Microsoft for charging less for Windows Server in Azure than was possible when using the OS in rival clouds. Microsoft therefore added flexibility to licensing, but also dodged a likely lawsuit.

The company has now again shown how it can use licensing to advantage its own prospects, which was what got it into trouble with Europe in the first place.

Another element of last week's announcement also bears examination: namely the change that allows customers to redistribute Windows Container base images beyond their organization in a way that allows distribution of a complete containerized application.

As Microsoft explains, container images bundle files needed for an application into "a stack of layers that reside on the user's local machine or in a remote container registry." The architecture of Windows containers requires that the first layer of Windows container images must, by design, be a layer of Windows container base image. However, licenses prevented customers from distributing that Windows container base image outside their own organization.

The change means a Windows container base image can now be distributed to third parties.

This matters because it means Windows apps can be packaged as containers and shared with others. That gives Microsoft customers more reasons to consider refactoring their apps for containers – perhaps even by using AKS, now that it's free to use under the Azure Hybrid Benefit. ®

Tech companies Microsoft, Adobe and HubSpot are the highest-rated large employers for perks and benefits, according to the latest salary survey by the job-hunting website Comparably.

The site determined the rankings based on feedback provided by employees over the past year.

“Beyond competitive pay, having great perks and benefits continue to play an important role in what makes a workplace attractive,” Jason Nazar, co-founder and chief executive officer of Comparably, said in a statement. “From fully-paid healthcare and unlimited time off, to fertility and adoption benefits, more companies are expanding their offerings to make a difference in the lives of their employees.”

The list includes the 100 top-rated large companies with more than 500 employees, and the 100 top-rated small and midsize companies, with fewer than 500 employees.

Employees anonymously rated their companies on Comparably.com between Sept. 14, 2021, and Sept. 14, 2022. They were asked questions like, “Are you satisfied with your benefits?” and “How would you rate the perks your office provides?”

"Benefits at Microsoft are best in class," one anonymous employee said of the tech giant  which grabbed the number one spot among large companies. "The medical coverage and fitness expense money are extremely generous."

Below are the top 50 large and top 50 small and midsize companies that made the list.

Killexams : Microsoft’s tech to seriously speed up load times for Windows gamers is coming ‘soon’ null © Square Enix null

Microsoft has announced that a fresh version of DirectStorage will be going out to game developers before the end of 2022, and it’ll come with an important step forward in terms of speeding up loading times with SSDs.

As you may be aware, DirectStorage is the feature first seen on the Xbox which brings faster load times – and better performance loading game assets in big open world titles – and it first arrived for Windows PCs back in March.

What Microsoft has now revealed (hat tip to Tom’s Hardware) is that DirectStorage 1.1, a new version with GPU Decompression tech incorporated, will be here very soon. Although there still aren’t any games that’ll benefit from it (yet – we’ll come back to this obviously rather crucial point).

Microsoft has already told us that DirectStorage (DS) will produce a reduction in load times of up to 40% – for games on fast NVMe SSDs running on Windows 11 – and this new piece of the DS puzzle, GPU Decompression, will offer something in the order of a tripling of loading time performance, the company promises.

Normally, decompression (of compressed game assets, which need to be made smaller due to their hefty size) is run by the CPU, but what Microsoft is doing is switching this grunt work directly to the GPU.

Microsoft explains: “Graphics cards are extremely efficient at performing repeatable tasks in parallel, and we can utilize that capability along with the bandwidth of a high-speed NVMe drive to do more work at once.”

In a Microsoft demo, the company illustrated that when DirectStorage is running with GPU decompression, compared to traditional CPU decompression, “scenes are loading nearly 3x faster and the CPU is almost entirely freed up to be used for other game processes.” (In that demo, the processor only saw 15% maximum usage, by the way, compared to 100% usage when DS wasn’t being used).

Now, bear in mind this is a cherry-picked and ‘highly optimized’ demo (in Microsoft’s own words), but it certainly promises some seriously beefy gains overall, which should see games that support DirectStorage loading – and running – much more smoothly all-round.

It’s worth noting that while DirectStorage is made with superfast NVMe SSDs in mind, it will still work with slower SSDs (and indeed hard disks, to a point); but the effect won’t be nearly as pronounced. The storage speeding tech will also work fine on Windows 10 machines, too, but Windows 11 offers advances on the storage optimization front which again will mean DS offers more impact. (Also, you need a contemporary GPU for DS to work, meaning one with DX12 and Shader Model 6 support).

The main catch still is that despite work on DirectStorage proceeding nicely, there are still no PC games that actually support the tech. We were supposed to be getting the first game to show off DS this month, Forspoken, but it has been delayed to January 2023 (and was already put back before then, so that’s a tad disappointing).

That said, it’s still only a few months away – assuming no further hiccups – but even then, it’s just one game. It’ll doubtless be a while before wider support is adopted among PC game devs, but when it is, this could become a compelling reason to upgrade to Windows 11 for gamers (and equally a good reason to get an NVMe SSD for those who haven’t yet made the leap on the storage front).

Killexams : Microsoft’s Actions Post-ZeniMax Acquisition Are What Concerns The UK CMA With It Acquiring Activision

The UK CMA has published a statement regarding Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, citing that its concerns with granting approval for the acquisition come from Microsoft’s actions after it acquired ZeniMax.

“Third parties told the CMA that Microsoft would benefit from making Activision’s content exclusive to Game Pass, and that this would be consistent with Microsoft’s behaviour in relation to past acquisitions, including that of ZeniMax Media, where Microsoft did not uphold its promise to continue making Bethesda content available on multiple stores and platforms.”

Call Of Duty is the franchise that’s been brought up the most in regards to potentially holding up the deal, but it seems like the CMA is concerned beyond just the one franchise.

“Most Game Pass rivals lack the popularity and range of content that Game Pass would own post-Merger. Given the importance of Activision’s content, current and future rivals could be affected by any foreclosure strategies using that content.”

With these concerns it’s beginning to grow more and more curious as to whether or not the acquisition will actually go through.

Killexams : IPI Gets Microsoft Certification, Harps on Benefits to Customers

The Chief Executive Officer of IPI Solutions Nigeria Ltd, Mr. Adamu Garba, has continued to harp on the benefits of the Microsoft Certification awarded the company recently, as a Tier 1 Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), by Microsoft Corporation in West Africa and Central Africa.
At a recent customer forum organised by IPI Solutions Nigeria Ltd in Lagos, Garba spoke extensively on the benefits of working with a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP). He first expressed his excitement in being chosen as a Tier 1 Microsoft CSP.

“We are so excited at IPI Solutions to be approved as a Microsoft CSP because it enables us to effectively aid our customers on their plan to re-invent productivity and transform their businesses with IT Solutions,” Adamu said.
IPI Solutions Nigeria Limited was recently chosen as a Tier 1 Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) by Microsoft Corporation in West Africa and Central Africa. IPI Solutions is the first and only Information Technology IT Solution provider to be approved in Nigeria as a Microsoft CSP.
A Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider is a partner that directly manages the entire cloud customer’s lifecycle, they directly provision, manage, and support their customer’s subscriptions.

While highlighting the benefits at the customer forum, Adamu spoke about the many perks of working with a Microsoft CSP, which include: Flexible and Simplified monthly billing on all Microsoft Cloud Services;
Cost-effective pricing provided through tailor made packages to suit your organizations cloud needs; Pay for what you need; Customers owning and controlling their data; ability of customers to easily purchase partner tools, products, and/or services with their subscription in one predictable monthly bill, among other benefits.

“CSP is an amazing opportunity for our customers because they can now be billed flexibly whether it is monthly, bi monthly, annually however they like” said Garba.
He also spoke about some of the things every customer should expect from IPI Solutions support team to include: Timely response, accuracy, efficient personnel, devoted personnel, among others.
According to him, “Any time a support incident is reported to us, be assured that your problem would be addressed in a timely manner. You as our customer should expect a near-immediate response from our support team.” In the area of accuracy, he said customers should not just expect a timely response but should also be assured that IPI would deliver the customer quality and accurate information/support that would definitely solve the organisation challenges.

In the area of efficient personnel, Garba said: “Every member of our support team is dedicated to ensuring our customers get the best support possible. They are qualified, competent and trained to deal with whatever support incident you wish to report. Be assured that every personnel in the IPI Solution support team is efficient and dedicated in providing customers with appropriate solutions.”
Garba also talked about the cloud marketplace and how the company can now directly deploy Microsoft Cloud services from its cloud marketplace.
“The partnership allows us at IPI Solutions to integrate our www.ipigroupng.com Cloud Marketplace into the Microsoft CSP programme by enabling our customers to quickly and conveniently deploy Microsoft Cloud Services such as Office 365, Azure, Enterprise Mobility, CRM Online, Intune, Windows 10 Enterprise, and the newly provisioned Microsoft Dynamics AX Cloud offering.
The IPI Cloud marketplace is an aggregation portal integrating cloud services that will offer customers, partners and resellers a marketplace for all workloads and technologies across industry verticals, Garba said.

Killexams : Enghouse Interactive Webinar: Microsoft Teams in Contact Centres

Enghouse Interactive webinar to showcase how native Microsoft Teams contact centres transform customer service

CX certified are embracing Microsoft Teams to drive greater collaboration and deeper communication

Enghouse Interactive, a leading developer of contact centre software and services, will be hosting a free webinar, entitled ‘The Latest Look at a Microsoft Teams Contact Centre’ at 9a.m. GMT on Tuesday 1 November, 2022.

The event will assess the challenges organisations face in delivering the optimum customer experience through the contact centre and how the combination of Microsoft Teams and Enghouse Interactive solutions can help address and resolve them.

The webinar will be hosted by Anna Stokes, Director of Product Management, Enghouse Interactive. She will demonstrate the company’s latest native Microsoft Teams Contact Centre and highlight recent key changes in the architecture as well as showcasing the broad range of benefits businesses can achieve by enabling Microsoft Teams for the contact centre.

Organisations across the globe are adopting Microsoft Teams to provide a backbone for greater collaboration and deeper communication. As they move forward on their Teams journey, they increasingly understand that integrating it with the contact centre enhances the value they can get from the platform.

Stokes does, however, advise that in doing this, businesses trust an experienced, Microsoft certified partner such as Enghouse Interactive who has the right knowledge and functionality to deliver the integration model that best aligns with their current and future needs.

“While Teams does offer some basic customer service functionality, it isn’t a feature-rich contact centre platform,” she said. “Companies therefore need to integrate Teams with a best-of-breed contact centre solution, like the Enghouse Interactive Communications Centre, if they want to achieve real benefits.”

According to Stokes: “Integrating your contact centre with Microsoft Teams drives greater efficiency, especially around telephony costs, increases flexibility, by enabling the easier routing of interactions, boosts productivity, by allowing agents to handle more calls and bring down average handling time, all while enhancing the customer experience through a more joined-up approach.“

Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to find out more about how the combination of a state-of-the-art contact centre solution that fully and natively integrates on the Teams platform, together with Microsoft Teams itself, supports an enhanced customer experience while maximising the unified communications investments the business has already made.

Killexams : Microsoft.com adds new webpage detailing the benefits of Activision Blizzard acquisition

A new portal has been added on Microsoft's official website that lays out all the benefits of the company's impending buyout of Activision Blizzard. Titled "Our vision for gaming: More choice and more games for people everywhere," the page has an introduction that states that Microsoft and the Xbox team "want to enable people to play games anywhere, anytime and on any device."

The portal contains the following links:

The "Our vision for gaming" page also charts the benefits of the Activision Blizzard deal, citing among them "More games on more devices including Xbox, PlayStation (interestingly), phones and online." The chart also notes "Greater competition in traditional gaming, where Sony and Nintendo will remain the biggest," as you can see above.

The page also includes a clip of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's recent comments to Bloomberg on the ongoing progress of the Activision Blizzard deal.

The case being made on this new section of Microsoft's site echoes what Xbox execs have been saying in response to criticism of the deal.

Killexams : Microsoft’s Call of Duty Exclusivity Stance Fails to Convince UK Regulator

The UK regulator Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has continued a week of controversy over the Microsoft and Activision deal by refusing to accept Microsoft’s version of events over whether the Call of Duty franchise will become Xbox exclusive. They have instead sided with Sony that there will be a “substantial lessening of competition” between PlayStation and Xbox if the acquisition was allowed to go ahead.

The CMA didn’t believe Microsoft’s statement from earlier this week that they would keep Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles. Instead, the CMA found a “realistic prospect” of Microsoft “withholding or degrading Activision’s content—including popular games such as CoD—from other consoles or multi-game subscription services.” Later on in the statement from the UK regulator, the CMA said they believed that even if Microsoft did not make Call of Duty entirely exclusive, they would adopt a strategy of timed or content exclusivity so that Microsoft would “capture the most dedicated CoD gamers—those who would switch to Xbox to benefit from enhanced content, interoperability, or earlier releases —whilst continuing to generate revenues from less dedicated PlayStation CoD gamers.”

The result of these findings on Call of Duty is that the CMA believes that if the Microsoft and Activision deal was allowed to go ahead, it could have “a significant impact on Sony’s revenues and user base.” Microsoft has until October 28 to respond to this latest conclusion.
