December 08, 2010 07:00 PMOn Nov. 22, Compellent announced the newest release of StorageCenter version 5.4, new Live Volume software, new Enterprise Manager multisite tool capabilities, and next-generation hardware that is faster, stores more data and connects to FCoE and 10GbE iSCSI. Back in October, I wrote that Compellent was rising to the enterprise challenge. With this announcement, it's clear to me that Compellent is taking on the enterprise challenge and may be swinging the acquisition pendulum in their direction.

June 03, 2010 10:38 AMProtecting information and corporate assets has always been a tricky business, and today's computing environment just adds to the complexity. Remote offices and mobile users need just as much protection, and possibly more, than headquarters employees who sit behind carefully constructed layers of defense. SaaS applications and public cloud deployments mean sensitive data travel outside traditional network boundaries. And the Web presents a never-ending fountain of malware.

March 26, 2010 10:52 AMSixty percent of virtualized servers will be less secure than the physical servers they replace through 2012. So says Neil MacDonald, vice president and fellow at Gartner. Virtual machines by themselves aren't inherently less secure. The problem is how VMs are deployed. MacDonald says the processes and tools used in the deployment of physical servers aren't necessarily being applied to their virtual counterparts. "In no way would I say, 'Don't virtualize.' The cost savings are undeniable. But we need to have an intelligent conversation between the operations side and the security side about what is different between the virtualized and physical environment," says MacDonald. VM insecurity is of growing concern because of the large number of virtual machines predicted to come online. By the end of 2009, only 18 percent of enterprise data center workloads that could potentially be virtualized had been so, according to Gartner. The analyst firm expects the number to grow to more than 50 percent by the end of 2012.
March 26, 2010 08:00 AMThe woes of smartphone maker Palm have been front and center across the tech blogs and publications in the last week, with many folks predicting the death or sale of the storied company. While Palm's WebOS devices have not exactly taken the enterprise market (or apparently the consumer market) by storm, there is still a lesson for IT in the current drama: Avoid choosing a loser by not choosing at all.
January 04, 2010 01:00 PMThe virtualization industry has been on fire with news of VMware's latest experimental venture: Smartphone Virtualization. The technology has been targeted at the mobile professional who currently carries two phones, one for personal and one for business use. VMware touts that with a real hypervisor on board, our prototype telecommuter of tomorrow will be able to switch seamlessly between two different installed operating systems on the same phone. With Gigahertz processor cell phones on the market and storage into the 100GB mark, it seems reasonable to virtualize phone technology. Getting deeper into the logistics, however, it starts to sound like more trouble than it's worth.
December 21, 2009 09:00 AMForrester's survey of 2,600 European and U.S. IT decision-makers for small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) reveals that 53 percent of SMBs have or are implementing x86 server virtualization, 36 percent have virtualized instances of operating systems (OSs) and 61 percent expect to virtualize OS instances within the next two years. It seems that SMBs are jumping on the bandwagon, but is there more to SMB psychology that makes an SMB opt in or out of virtualizing?
