Warmest wishes this holiday season and a happy new year from the Coffee Coaching team!

Coffee Coaching has had an incredible 2018 and we hope you have too! The end of the year is a great time to reflect on the year and all that has been accomplished. In 2018 the Coffee Coaching program was very busy releasing 135 blogs and over 20 new videos. Our blogs covered a bit of everything from the HPE ProLiant Gen10 Security features  and the different HPE ProLiant Gen10 & iLO 5 security modes, the Software Defined Datacenter and Windows Server Software Defined (WSSD) Solutions from HPE, some scary facts about cybercrime and of course we talked a lot about Windows Server 2008 End of Support and Windows Server 2016 licensing from HPE.

We enjoy telling you all about the HPE Microsoft partnership and our discussions didn't stop with just our blogs. We had a great time releasing new videos and engaging directly with you, our beloved community, to answer questions you may have. Our top three videos for 2018 were: Understanding Windows Server Client Access Licenses (CALs), Windows Server 2016 Core Based Licensing Explained, and Windows Server 2008 End of Support (EoS) is coming soon! If you want to catch up with other videos from the year, be sure to visit the Coffee Coaching YouTube Channel.

Of course, the year wouldn't have been complete without exciting events such as HPE Discover Las Vegas and Madrid and Microsoft Ignite and we had a great time sharing announcements and photos from these events.

Coffee Coaching has had a great time covering the HPE and Microsoft partnership and we are looking forward to 2019 with lots of new topics planned and many new videos coming out! Drop us a note below and let us know what your favorite topics were from 2018 and what you want to learn more about in 2019.

Wishing you a new year full of peace and joy!
