For Two NJIT Computing Engineering Majors, Dream Jobs at Microsoft Await Come Graduation

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) May 12, 2014

Rafael Yactayo and Henry Robalino, both senior computer engineering majors at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), were sitting next to each other in a computer science class last October, laptops open, when e-mails popped up in their inboxes at precisely the same moment. Microsoft found us, recounted Yactayo 14, of Passaic, who noted that his and Robalinos resumes had been plucked from an enormous database compiled by SHPE prior to the organizations conference in Indianapolis at the end of that month.

I was flabbergasted. I remember thinking: Is this real? Please, someone pinch me, recalled Robalino 14, a Newark resident. Then I thought, wed better start preparing.

The two friends had received nearly identical messages requesting interviews at the upcoming national career conference of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE). They exchanged looks of elation and incredulity as neither had formally applied for a position with the multinational consumer electronics giant.

Yactayo and Robalino will join the more than 2,700 students who will receive bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees at NJITs 98th Commencement on May 20, 2014 at 9 a.m. at the Prudential Center in Newark. The ceremony will feature remarks from NJIT President Joel S. Bloom and a keynote address by Clement Alexander Price, Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor of History, Rutgers University-Newark Campus, and Director of the Rutgers Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience, who will also receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters. AECOM Executive Chairman John M. Dionisio and distinguished financial expert Robert S. Dow 69 will each receive an honorary Doctor of Science.

Come July, Yactayo and Robalino will start out for new lives in cities far from home. Robalino will be based in Dallas, where he will be an associate consultant installing, configuring and maintaining a range of Microsoft products from cloud computing services to project management software. Yactayo will work in Reston, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C., where he will also be an account manager and consultant.

Well be dealing with CIOs and CEOs in some cases, Yactayo noted, adding that they may begin their Microsoft journeys with a glimpse of the founder himself former chairman Bill Gates at the companys Global Exchange in Atlanta this summer, to which new hires have been invited. They will continue there for a month of training and networking following the conference.

Robalino, who acknowledged hed been fretting about the coming job hunt and already contemplating what he called plan Z teaching English in Japan if nothing turned up, believes his and Yactayos success hinged on a couple of factors.

I think its partly because we have both technical and communications skills. Microsoft interviewers told us they were looking for people who are able to explain technology to people who are less technologically focused, he said, adding that solid IT experience in internships at technology companies, including his recent work at Whippany-based Herley CTI as a helpdesk technician, was also a huge plus. And engineering projects, such as work on a robotic arm in a senior capstone project, helped me learn to be fast on my feet and defend my ideas, he noted.

Yactayo, who interned at both Coty, Inc. and Panasonic, also credits NJITs Office of Career Development Services with helping him burnish his professional image.

Someone from Johnson & Johnson came in two years ago and looked at my resume and talked to me about how to build it. The mock interviews we conducted were also really helpful, he recalled.

Both seniors are girding themselves for hard work to come, which will be like drinking from a fire hose, as Yactayo anticipates, but they are also confident that they will succeed and advance.

Im already thinking about moving into engineering management. I expect to learn a lot at the company and to grow within it, Yactayo said, noting that his mother, who moved to the U.S. from Peru before he was born, burst into tears when he told her about his new job. Im the first one in the family to go to college and shes very proud of my achievements.

Im looking forward to traveling more and experiencing things that are new, says Robalino, who has already begun discussing his move with a Microsoft relocation specialist and scouting out apartments in Dallas. He, too, is looking to move into management. He and Yactayo both plan to take advantage of career development workshops Microsoft offers as part of its two-year Academy of College Hires program, and both hope to earn masters degrees in the near future. They expect to do well enough that they will receive company support to continue their education.

Microsoft is also changing rebooting in a way and thats exciting, too, Robalino says. Were the new people brought in to be a part of that.

The 2014 Commencement ceremony will feature remarks from NJIT President Joel S. Bloom and a keynote address by Clement Alexander Price, Board of Governors Distinguished Service Professor of History, Rutgers University-Newark Campus, and Director of the Rutgers Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience, who will also receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters. AECOM Executive Chairman John M. Dionisio and distinguished financial expert Robert S. Dow 69 will each receive an honorary Doctor of Science.

GreenBridge Computing Signs Global Agreement with Microsoft Technology Centers

Seattle (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

Today GreenBridge Computing announced that it signed a global Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) Alliance agreement with Microsoft Corporation, bringing its new cloud computing device to enterprise customers worldwide.

The HUB 400 (The HUB) is the worlds first $ 100 enterprise-class cloud computing device. It is proven to dramatically reduce hardware costs and lower energy consumption by replacing standard personal computers (PCs) with an affordable and easy to manage zero-client solution (a cell phone-sized device running without a processor or operating system). While The HUB can be used in a variety of business scenarios, it was designed with the needs of retail and other service-based organizations in mind.

The pressure to drive innovation while reducing costs is something all organizations face, said David Yunger, CEO of GreenBridge Computing. We are seeing companies replace $ 900 PCs with $ 99 devices, all while enhancing and securing legacy IT infrastructure.

As part of the global agreement, the device will be showcased in a number of MTCs worldwide from New York to Silicon Valley, Tokyo and Paris and is already available in the flagship Microsoft Retail Experience Center in Redmond, Wash. In addition, the MTCs are one of GreenBridge Computings earliest enterprise customers and plan to deploy The HUB in select locations.

The HUB comes to market at a time when organizations face Microsofts upcoming Windows XP End of Life deadline and are hungry for options that optimize costs as they make the migration. A recent total cost of ownership analysis compared The HUB to traditional PCs and demonstrated potential savings up to 80 percent. The analysis also found significant savings in power usage and associated costs. Using the HUB, customers can manage up to 20 independent workstations per PC.

The HUB 400 is a superb option for corporations looking to reduce their distributed computing costs,” said Joey Young, Worldwide MTC Alliances Director. Virtualization typically means massive infrastructure costs and expensive third party software. Microsoft and GreenBridge have re-written the game plan. There is really nothing else like it available at such a compelling price point.

The HUB offers seamless integration with Microsoft Enterprise software, helping companies leverage the power of the Microsoft cloud. Windows MultiPoint Server 2012 serves as the base operating system, delivering a Windows 8 experience to each user. Businesses can also deploy the solution as a virtual machine in a data center, managed by Windows Server and Microsoft Hyper-V.

GreenBridge Computing and Microsoft have successfully deployed devices in tens of thousands of terminals worldwide. While the HUB was initially designed as a cost-effective solution for education environments, recent demand from retailers and leading Fortune 500 firms accelerated its launch to the enterprise market. The device was launched to enterprise customers at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & Expo in New York, Jan. 12-14, 2014.

Businesses can purchase The HUB at http://www.msmultipoint.com. More information and a short demo are available online here.

GreenBridge Computing

GreenBridge Computing is a global leader in the desktop virtualization arena, specializing in Windows MultiPoint Server solutions. The companys devices and services deliver a rich PC experience, with all the economic benefits of the cloud, at a fraction of the cost. Visit http://www.greenbridgecomputing.com to learn more.

5nine Software Announces Security Heartbeat Service and Virtual Firewall 2.0 for Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008

Holmdel, NJ (PRWEB) July 14, 2010

Holmdel, NJ, USA, July 14, 2010. – 5nine Software today announced 5nine Virtual Firewall 2.0 for Microsoft Hyper-V – powerful and easy to use virtual firewall for Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008 / R2. 5nine Virtual Firewall controls network traffic between virtual machines, detects/blocks malicious attacks and improves the security of a virtualized environment.

Both SMB and large size Enterprise deployments or hosting companies need v-Firewall to harden security of the virtual machines and the Virtual host system.

5nine Virtual Firewall provides an ability to monitor and control network traffic between virtual machines and external (physical) network, as well as between virtual machines within the virtual network. System Administrator can define the rules for different types of traffic coming to/from virtual machines, as well as the ports used. This could be done both programmatically (with simple PowerShell API), or using administrative application running on a management Virtual machine or a standalone web server.

Special heartbeat service continuously checks if the security rules/policies are enforced, and stops/pauses the virtual machine if its network filter is not communicated, which prevents exposure of the VMs to wide range of exploits.

By controlling incoming and outgoing network traffic for each Hyper-V virtual machine 5nine Virtual Firewall helps to improve the security of a virtual environment, and enforces various compliance best practices and standards, including PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

5nine Virtual Firewall can be used with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager when virtual machine is provisioned, or deployed on the physical machine(s) prior to P2V Migration.

Virtual Firewall also keeps statistics for number of packets and average size of each packet. Based on this statistics Virtual Firewall creates a network usage pattern, and notifies the user if it has changed, which often indicates malicious attack or a Malware. System Administrator subsequently can take an action to block suspicious traffic creating or modifying appropriate rule.

“Unlike traditional hardware firewalls, 5nine v-Firewall for Hyper-V allows us to programmatically manage network security on a per VM basis. Ultimately, this will decrease management costs and improve the security and compliance of our MaxV Cloud Servers” – said Ryan Jones, Virtualization Product Manager, Maximum ASP.

More and more companies, including those of highly regulated financial, insurance and healthcare industries, are looking to utilize Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization technology to reduce costs and optimize IT resources. Security and compliance are increasing concerns for broad range of virtualization deployments. 5nine Virtual Firewall provides strong protection for the virtual infrastructure.

“5nine v-Firewall and v-Firewall Free Edition has already drawn significant attention of many organizations of different size, including SMB, hosting companies and enterprises utilizing Microsoft Hyper-V and Server 2008 / R2 and the new version 2.0 builds on that success. said Dr. Konstantin Malkov, R&D Director of 5nine Software. We worked closely with Microsoft Product Management and a few major Microsoft. Hosting Partners to complete version 2.0 of 5nine Virtual Firewall. It allowed us to refine requirements for secure Hyper-V virtual machines provisioning and deployment, which were implemented in version 2.0 of 5nine Virtual Firewall and 5nine Security Heartbeat Service for Hyper-V.
