SCS 8 first teaser

I’m on the team working on SCS 8, and although we are not even half way done, I’m really excited about our new features. At this point I will only talk about features that we’ve already implemented, so this is in no way the final list of features.

Let’s first take it one step back. SCS 7.0 and 7.1 took SCS in a different direction. We added Host Based Configuration, so we can definitely say that configuration has never been simpler. We also removed the use of a database, and so we got ourselves one lean-and-mean configuration machine.

Back from HP Discover 2011

A few months back I had the really great privilege to be invited as a speaker to HP Discover 2011 to chat about Intel vPro and how to connect it to social networks using peer-to-peer technologies. The conference was in Las Vegas at the venetian hotel and last week I went and had a wonderful time. I gave two hands-on labs, 2 hours each. HP went thru a lot of trouble to equip the lab with 48 Intel vPro laptops for people to get real life experience with the technologies.

Integrating Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) by taking advantage of the Windows PowerShell Module for Intel® vPro™

Starting with the Intel® AMT SDK version 7.0 and higher, it’s becoming much easier to access Intel® AMT Technology using Windows PowerShell. PowerShell, as you have probably heard, is Microsoft’s task automation framework for Windows and provides a scripting language built on top of the .NET framework. Intel now provides a PowerShell Module for Intel® AMT. A PowerShell Module is a package of reusable commands and features that expose their functionality as if they were directly built into PowerShell.
