Meet Mostafa Yousry! November's Hyper-V Guru

1 -Mostafa, can you please introduce yourself to our readers?

  I have been working in the IT business for over 7 years now. I started as a Senior Technical Service Engineer. My responsibility was building Datacenters, such as Servers, Storage Systems, Backup solutions and  Virtualization, for many vendors such as Microsoft, HP, Dell, IBM, VMware and Symantec. Today I am a Regional Technology Solution Professional at CoEx - Microsoft Middle East & Africa, with the focus on Datacenter workload such as Windows Server, Windows Azure and System Center.


  2-What do you love the most about technology?

  I love thinking with customers, how to apply appropriate technology to solve their pains that they are facing in the IT world.




  3-Can you give us a small introduction to better understand what is Hyper-V?

 Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 is a hypervisor-based server virtualization product that enables you to consolidate workloads, helping organizations improve server utilization and reduce costs.

Hyper-V is a role in Windows Server® 2008 and Windows Server® 2012 that provides you with the tools and services you can use to create a virtualized server-computing environment. This type of environment is useful because you can create and manage virtual machines, which allow you to run multiple operating systems on one physical computer and isolate the operating systems from each other.


4-Can you provide us with interesting links that can help us know more and introduce us to Hyper-V?

Check out those 2 links


5- What are the newest updates for Hyper-V this year?

We announced Windows Server 2012 R2 – a major release of Windows Server. We’ve already made significant virtualization improvements around Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 – across the board, including scale, availability, management, storage and networking. There is also a lot of new and enhanced capabilities for Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 R2 release.


6-Away from technology, do you have any other hobbies or passions?

 I love travelling and Scuba diving, here is a picture of me under water :)


 7-Very Nice picture! Do you have any advice to anyone that wants to be an IT guru?

 Here is one of my favorite quotes "You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother"… Albert Einstein

 Therefore, my advice is you must read, practice and then read again and practice a lot.


8-How can people contact you for any technical inquiries?

You can reach out to me by , and I will start blogging on my team blog .
