Plex Cloud lets you say goodbye to your always-on home media server

PCWorld

Popular home media server Plex is heading to the cloud. The company just announced its latest new premium feature designed to help anyone who's tired of maintaining a physical Plex Media Server at home. Plex Cloud lets you store your content on Amazon Drive and then connect that account to a cloud-hosted version of Plex server. That way you don't have to run your own Plex server at home. You also don't need to worry about keeping an extra machine powered on or deal with occasional power outages.

Microsoft to move Windows Server engineering team into Windows and Devices Group

ZDNet

Microsoft is moving the engineering team responsible for Windows Server to the Windows and Devices Group, resulting in all versions of Windows at the company now being part of the same unit. Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie will continue to head up the remaining Cloud and Enterprise unit, and Executive Vice President Terry Myerson will now continue to run the expanded Windows and Devices Group. Both the Windows Server engineering and the Remote Desktop Services engineering teams will be part of Myerson's organization, my sources are saying. But Mike Neil, who currently oversees Windows Server engineering, and Brad Anderson, who is responsible for Remote Desktop Services, are staying with the Cloud and Enterprise team, I am hearing, and will continue to head up the other teams they currently lead. Guthrie since February 2014 has been EVP of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise division, where he has been in charge of Microsoft's cloud, server, database, business apps, security, management, and development tools business.


Why (and how) Microsoft is circling its hybrid-cloud wagons

ZDNet

If expectations pan out, Amazon and VMware will announce today a tie-up that will give Amazon a hybrid-cloud computing play (at long last). Perhaps not so coincidentally, Microsoft, which has been touting hybrid computing as a key differentiator for the company for years, is stepping up its hybrid-cloud rhetoric as of late. As far and fast as cloud computing is embedding itself into the enterprise, there remain many cloud-resistant applications and services. For years, Amazon officials referred to private cloud as the "false cloud," claiming that any and every workload should be in the public cloud. For just as long, Microsoft officials have made the case that users should be able to decide which of their workloads belonged on premises, in the public cloud and/or in some type of hybrid configuration.
