It's been sometime since I last deployed Windows Server in a corporate environment, and it looks like Windows Server 2022 is now generally available. Some of the notable updates include multi-layered security and Hybrid capabilities with Azure.
I've been a long time user of Windows server and it's been the foundation for many data centers that I've worked in. I was excited to see a preview of the latest version and get a chance to play with new features. I'll be installing this on my desktop in a virtual machine so let's see how that goes.
OpenStack Victoria was released on October 14, 2020 and is the 22nd release of OpenStack, the open source cloud software. It was interesting to see that contributions came from close to 800 people, 45 countries and 160 organizations.
In the next release of Microsoft Windows, you will find security an important piece of the design. Microsoft will make more hardware security options like Trusted Platform Module (TPM) enabled by default. I think anything vendors can do to help with security is always welcome.
Google along with a number of other trusted manufacturers announced OpenTitan which is an open-source silicon root of trust (RoT) project. If this the first time you have heard of 'root of trust' - well join the club. It seems we have lots to learn together.
