Azure StorSimple is Microsoft’s hybrid cloud storage solution that leverages the cloud to solve one of the most pressing challenges of the enterprise customer: managing rapid data growth. In the last 12 months, rapid innovations like StorSimple Virtual Array (a software version of StorSimple solution) and Local Volumes (which allows storage administrators to decide which data needs to remain in the local tiers) have expanded the value of Azure StorSimple for customers and partners.
Between Aug 2016 – Oct 2016, Microsoft is offering a series of educational sessions for IT Pros to get intimately familiarized with some of these innovations, as well as get a practitioner’s view around planning, implementing, and managing the deployment scenarios. All sessions are delivered (over Skype) by seasoned professionals with several years of consulting & implementation experience. The sessions consist of 40% theory and 60% demo and practical tips. As a follow-up to the sessions, participants can request personalized 1-1 consulting sessions on actual customer scenarios that they are working on. In addition, the session will introduce the audience to several resources for continued learning beyond these sessions. In the last 6 months, these sessions have been widely acclaimed for efficacy and usefulness to the IT Pro community – training over 900 professions across 650 unique organizations, globally. While it’s best to have a background in storage, the sessions will also benefit infrastructure professionals who want to grow their expertise in Azure hybrid cloud storage.

With back-to-school season in full swing or just about to get going in many countries, it’s a good time to reflect on the excitement around OneNote Class Notebooks and Staff Notebooks. The original OneNote Class Notebook app was in preview release during the summer of 2014 and went to general availability in October of 2014. Since then, we’ve had hundreds of thousands of teachers using the app in Office 365—resulting in millions of student notebooks created. We also just released some big updates for the 2016/2017 school year. In just one week, we’ve seen more class notebooks created than the entire 2014/2015 school year! We’ve heard from all over the world about teachers’ and schools’ desire to use class and staff notebooks, so we have enabled the app in a set of new countries and regions.
OneNote Class and Staff Notebook app—now available via Office 365 in 90 new countries and regions
In early August, we enabled OneNote Class and Staff Notebooks for 90 new countries around the world—bringing the grand total to 151 countries where Office 365 Education customers can use the OneNote Class or Staff Notebook app.
We already had class and staff notebooks created in many of these new countries and, as you can see by the map, there are lots of countries (highlighted with purple for OneNote) using OneNote Class and Staff Notebooks!
