Server Virtualization has transformed the way we manage server workloads but virtualization hypervisors were not the endgame of data center management. What is the role of server virtualization and hypervisors in the new age of cloud, containers, and more importantly, hyperconvergence? I covered SAN technology in my last Infrastructure 101 article, so for today I'm going to cover server virtualization and maybe delve into containers and cloud. Server virtualization as we know it now is based on hypervisor technology. A hypervisor is an operating system that allows sharing of physical computing resources such as networking, CPU, RAM, and storage among multiple virtual machines (sometimes called virtual servers). Virtual machines replaced traditional physical servers that each had their own physical chassis with storage, RAM, networking, and CPU. To understand the imp... (more)

Are You Getting the Most Out of the Cloud Right Now? | @CloudExpo #Cloud

The pace of technology today means organizations are increasingly tasked with delivering applications that are fast, efficient, and capable of doing more than ever to keep up with the demands of the business. They're looking to improve existing applications and add new ones.

Coexistence: Adopting an Optimal IT Infrastructure Model | @CloudExpo #IaaS #SaaS #Cloud

Coexistence: Adopting an Optimal IT Infrastructure Model Some mainstream IT buyers might think that most cloud infrastructure vendors and service providers are essentially alike. But there are key differences. Besides, given the body of market research to the contrary, there’s clearly no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" cloud solution. Furthermore, if you believe that a hybrid cloud should support an IT agenda to transform a business, then a viable solution must consider the preexisting systems of record within the enterprise. That’s why forward-thinking CIOs often seek information and guidance on two fronts. First, they want to know how to extract costs from their legacy IT investments. Second, they desire to use that assessment exercise to free-up budget and fund innovation via a DevOps model that would streamline new cloud-native technology deployments. That’s... (more)
