postheadericon Microsoft and Tuxera strengthen partnership through Tuxera SMB Server

REDMOND, Wash., and HELSINKI, Finland — Sept. 14, 2016 — On Wednesday, Microsoft Technology Licensing LLC and Tuxera Inc. announced they have expanded their collaboration to Server Message Block (SMB) technology, fueling innovation in a range of fields and enhancing business solutions for customers around the globe. The collaboration comes as Tuxera launches its new Tuxera SMB as a drop-in replacement for the open-source Samba and other alternative SMB/Common Internet File System (CIFS) servers, ideally suited for embedded platforms.

“All the existing SMB/CIFS servers on the market, both open source and proprietary, have years of legacy code as added weight. This makes them not optimal for embedded use due to limited CPU, memory constraints and demanding support requirements,” said Szabolcs Szakacsits, Tuxera’s president and chief technology officer.

“Microsoft has helped lead the way in developing connected technologies, and SMB is integral to our server and business solutions,” said Nick Psyhogeos, president of Microsoft Technology Licensing. “Agreements like ours with Tuxera will accelerate the pace of innovation and shape industries that depend on a near-universal language for file transfers across networks.”

“We are excited to expand our multiyear cooperation with Microsoft to new technologies,” said Mikko Välimäki, Tuxera’s CEO. “Building on our market understanding as the global leader in file systems, Tuxera SMB has state-of-the-art modular architecture that makes it possible to run the server in both user and kernel space and reach hardware limit in I/O throughput, while maintaining the lowest possible CPU usage and memory footprint of any other alternative.”

Microsoft’s commitment to licensing IP

The patent agreement is another example of the important role intellectual property (IP) plays in ensuring a healthy and vibrant technology ecosystem. Since Microsoft launched its IP licensing program in December 2003, it has entered into more than 1,200 licensing agreements. More information about Microsoft’s licensing programs is available at http://www.microsoft.com/iplicensing.

postheadericon Brown University offers Office 365 to students at no additional cost through Microsoft Student Advantage

REDMOND, Wash. — April 22, 2014 — Brown University has selected Microsoft Office 365 for its students, and is using the Microsoft Student Advantage benefit to extend the service to its student body at no additional cost using their existing Brown credentials. Available since Jan. 1, Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus gives Brown’s approximate 8,600 students the tools they need to complete coursework from any device while in school and compete in the job market after graduation.

Until now, students who wished to use Office had to purchase it for themselves or rely on third-party programs that didn’t always sync well with one another. Office on the Windows platform offers students a full enterprise experience, but many students use a variety of devices, such as iPhones, iPads, PCs and desktop computers, so Brown needed a unified solution that would provide students with the same, robust experience no matter what device they are using. Microsoft Student Advantage, which launched Dec. 1, 2013, enables academic institutions that license Office for staff and faculty to provide Office 365 ProPlus for students at no additional cost.

“When our chief information officer heard about Student Advantage, he wanted us to make it available to students as quickly as possible, and we were able to extend the service to students in about one month,” said Geoffrey Greene, director of IT Support Services, Brown University. “Students have been champing at the bit for this, and faculty have frequently asked us to help students get the solution, so it’s a great benefit for everyone. Plus, a lot of our students use laptops, iPhones and other devices, so Office 365 was the perfect solution for us.”

Extending the Office 365 service to students helps Brown ensure that students have the technical tools they need to succeed in their classes, and that their software is always up to date. The Daily Herald student blog helped alert students to the new offering in time for the start of the new semester.

“The Microsoft Student Advantage is an incredible opportunity for all students to gain access to the Office programs,” said Sazzy Gourley, student at Brown University. “Especially for incoming first-years, or for those who are purchasing new computers, Microsoft Student Advantage makes accessible the technology students need to be academically successful.”
