Microsoft Office 365 Update

Many of our clients are utilizing Microsoft Office 365 for their business.  The platform provides the MS Office Suite, Exchange, OneDrive, and other tools via the cloud, is accessible from all devices, and is always up to date.  We have chosen to highlight O365 because Microsoft’s support of Windows 10 is coming to an end.  After October, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 10.  As a result, many organizations are evaluating O365 versus a traditional premise-based Windows solution.

Office 365 is a line of subscription services offered by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft Office product line. The brand encompasses plans that allow use of the Microsoft Office software suite over the life of the subscription, as well as cloud-products for business environments, such as hosted Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, and SharePoint, among others. All Office 365 plans include automatic updates to their respective software at no additional charge, as opposed to conventional licenses for these programs—where new versions require purchase of a new license.

Hyper Converged Networking

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is a category of scale-out software-integrated infrastructure that applies a modular approach to compute, network and storage on standard hardware, leveraging distributed, horizontal building blocks under unified management. HCI vendors either build their own appliances using common, off-the-shelf infrastructure (hardware, virtualization, operating system), or they engage with system vendors that package the HCI vendor’s software stack as an appliance. Alternatively, HCI vendors sell their software directly to end users, through resellers and integrators, for use as part of a reference architecture, or on an HCI-as-a-service basis, either on-premises or in a public cloud.
