Microsoft unveiled its Windows Server 2016 and System Centre 2016 for the Middle East market at GITEX Technology Week.

Windows Server 2016 houses a cloud-ready application platform, built-in security, and tools to build software-defined infrastructures. Windows Server 2016 is designed to be scalable, from global scenarios to localised, small-data-centre level, offering cost and operational benefits to all, through software-defined compute, storage and network features inspired by Azure.

System Centre 2016, which is Microsoft’s on-premises system-management platform, offers full support for software-defined data centres, and integrates with the enhanced Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) cloud-based heterogeneous management tool for private and public clouds.

In System Centre 2016, Microsoft has added a number of new features for customers managing hybrid data centre architectures. These include Linux Management, desired-state configuration, and software-defined data centre management, including
Nano Server.

Necip Ozyucel, cloud and enterprise business solutions lead, Microsoft Gulf says: “The UAE is a nation of early adopters, from its government and businesses, right down to its tech-savvy consumers. The new editions of Windows Server and System Centre stand ready to knit the third platform together — cloud, mobile, analytics and social networks all permeate our new digital lives, and GITEX is the perfect venue to demonstrate how we can all benefit from these technologies.”
