Consideration Report: Reap the Full Potential of Workload Mobility within the Cloud and Data Center

Published By: Intel     Published Date: Nov 14, 2019
You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle A study commissioned by Intel Corp. One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.

DigitalOcean continues its rise as an ‘alternative’ cloud for developers and SMBs

Published By: DigitalOcean, LLC     Published Date: Nov 04, 2019
Over the last several years, DigitalOcean has built out its feature set in a way that has taken it from a provider of cheap and simple virtual machines (VMs) to a legitimate public cloud alternative, most recently adding support for Redis and MySQL to its managed database services. As its services evolve, it continues to experience healthy growth and maintain popularity among the independent developer audience. Over the past two years, DigitalOcean has accelerated the velocity of its feature development, looking to better meet the needs of a business audience. By emphasizing a simplified feature set, pricing structure and user experience, even as it expands its competitive footprint in the shadow of public cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Digital Ocean continues to help define what it means to be an alternative public cloud in a market dominated and largely defined by hyperscalers.

Conversational Unified Communications

Published By: Spectrum Enterprise     Published Date: Aug 22, 2019
Hello, greetings, and welcome to Conversational Unified Communications. I’m Brien Posey. For those of you who don’t know me, I am a long time Conversational Geek author, and 17-time Microsoft MVP. My professional background is in both IT and in commercial astronautics. It’s an odd combination for sure. I sometimes find myself setting up virtual machines on one day, and being strapped into a space capsule the next day (seriously). Thankfully, Peter, Nick, and the rest of the folks at Conversational Geek have embraced my unorthodox (dare I say eccentric) career choices and have allowed me to author books on subjects ranging from the cloud computing to real life rocket science. I would like to personally invite you to go to ConversationalGeek.com and check out some of these other books. In this book, I want to talk about unified communications. Those of you who follow my work may recall that back in 2009 I wrote another book about unified communications called Brien Posey’s Guide to Pract

How to Realistically Improve Your Recoverability with Commvault

Published By: Commvault ABM Oct     Published Date: Jul 17, 2019
Your goal is high availability for the applications, databases, virtual machines (VMs), servers, and data that run your business. When access is lost or interrupted, recovery speed is critical, and must be measured in minutes and seconds, not hours of days. And if your backup and recovery strategy includes point solutions with limited coverage, legacy approaches that don't support today's modern technologies, or manual proc cesses that are time-consuming and complex, you may not be ready when disaster strikes.

Finding Flexibility with Microservices, Containers, and Runtimes

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Jun 26, 2019
An introduction to the Forrester analyst report: How to Capture the Benefits of Microservice Design There has always been a relationship between an application and the platform and services which run it. For a long time, that relationship was very tight and encompassed a lot of areas related to the application design, from the language the application could be written in to administrative behaviors like monitoring and logging, even things like transaction management, frontend UI development, or integration methods. In a sense, the application platform was just another design consideration for the application. A few years ago, as significant changes in platform technology like cloud, containers, and virtual machines started rolling out, the primary emphasis for CTOs and application architects was on how to move to those platforms. The platform choice was a major part of the application. The focus was — one way or another — getting into “the cloud.” There’s been a shift in customers’ pri

However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.

VM Data Protection for Dummies

Published By: Quantum Corporation     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits. Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server! Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab

Langton Blue: HPE 3PAR Adaptive Data Reduction A competitive comparison of array-based data

Published By: Hewlett Packard Enterprise     Published Date: Mar 26, 2018
Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases) work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction, depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or images are based off a similar “gold” master.
