December 03, 2012 01:24 PMSoftware-defined networking promises to pull today’s network into the virtual age, but CIOs have to separate speculation from reality. Here are five observations to help guide IT leaders’ thinking.
September 04, 2012 02:56 PMVMware's focus has shifted from virtualizing servers to virtualizing whole data centers--and storage vendors are happy to jump on for the ride.
July 25, 2012 01:30 PMTo date, server-side SSD caching products include drivers for Windows or Linux. Proximal now supports the hypervisor directly, allowing features like vMotion and Live Migration to work as intended.
March 01, 2012 11:04 AMAs virtualization continues its proliferation throughout the enterprise, Microsoft, Citrix and KVM are all expected to be strong contenders to erode VMware's market share, say industry observers.
February 15, 2012 09:46 AMPrivate cloud may be inevitable, but diving into cloud without a plan is a terrible idea. And even with a technology plan, there are also two massive cultural problems to overcome: the buy-big syndrome and the belief that servers are not software.
January 31, 2012 09:00 AMAs use of IT grows in enterprises, so, too, do demands on networks to deliver more capacity and speed and to be able to prioritize traffic. Video gets priority over a simple email, but a VoIP call gets priority over video if the video in question is something frivolous on YouTube. The need to manage the growth and increasing complexity of networks is driving demand for network performance management technology that can monitor traffic, identify possible bottlenecks and intervene to clear bottlenecks up.
September 13, 2010 09:57 AMHP and ArcSight Inc. today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for HP to acquire ArcSight, a leading security and compliance management company, for $43.50 per share, or an enterprise value of $1.5 billion.
August 12, 2010 02:00 PMIn my entry "I/O Virtualization: When, Not If," I discussed some of the merits of I/O Virtualization (IOV) and the value in offloading I/O responsibilities from the hypervisor with SR-IOV (single route IOV). While SR-IOV and IOV may seem like great strategies, there are some inhibitors that need to be overcome. The first is OS or hypervisor support, and the second is dealing with the disruptions to the network and storage infrastructure when first implemented.
January 27, 2010 10:30 AMFor a long time, if there is such a thing as a "long time" in the virtualization space, Microsoft's Hyper-V has had a significant advantage over VMware in IT shops that are just dipping their toes in the virtualization waters. Administrators could choose between the familiar, comfortable interface of Windows or grapple with the perceived interface and complexity of VMware. Not much of a choice. VMware Go should change all of that. VMware Go ESXi isn't a new operating environment as it is a wizard-driven deployment of ESXi servers. It's meant for small business interested in using virtualization, but who may have been put off by the complexity of learning a new environment. In effect, it removes much of the advantage Hyper-V has had in selling a Windows environment.
September 17, 2009 10:38 AMI've been diving into all aspects of the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 ecosystem lately, as the operating systems move out into the enterprise. High on my radar is Hyper-V, the server virtualization solution that's available both as a standalone product and as part Windows Server 2008 R2.
