Cloud Management In A Hybrid Cloud World

Cloud platforms are increasingly a viable option for a growing set of enterprise workloads. Business-aligned developers are aggressively leveraging public cloud platforms to build and deploy new elastic applications and to extend legacy capabilities. They have come to expect speed, choice, and cost transparency. Meanwhile, nearly half of enterprise IT shops claim to be building

Dual-Source Virtualization Clears Path to Open Hybrid Clouds

At enterprises everywhere, private clouds are catching on. And increasingly, businesses are finding that an open hybrid approach to building private clouds is the best way to maximize their benefits—cost-effective, flexible computing and storage capacity without single-vendor limitations. That conclusion is causing IT leaders to seek out alternative providers of virtualization technology as well as

Cloud Resource Management the Right Way

Enterprise IT infrastructures are being transformed into dynamic, virtual infrastructures to enable increased agility, lower costs, and higher service levels. However, while these new shared infrastructures combine virtualization, resource aggregation, logical allocation, dynamic workload relocation, and settings reconfiguration, they also introduce significant complexities to resource management and capacity planning.

Cloud Infrastructure for the Real World

Enterprise applications are changing. Traditionally, they could take years to write and they could live for decades. They were monoliths that had to be protected against failure at all costs. The decades of research and development that went into technologies such as failover clustering was ultimately in service of protecting the running state of this

The Agility Gap in Today’s Private Cloud

If you’re like most organizations, your users and even your CEO are demanding “a cloud like Amazon” where they can instantly spin up servers through a self-service portal.

Architects must take the lead in advocating for a flexible data platform for the future as digital

Server and System Administrators Challenged to keep up with Enterprise Storage Explosion

The rapid evolution of enterprise storage technologies, combined with external forces like the explosion of big data, can leave Linux® and server administrators feeling like they’re playing catch-up. Plus, running a bunch of monolithic storage devices and proprietary, disconnected technologies forces administrators to spend valuable time creating and managing complex solutions instead of focusing on

A Modern Approach to the Data Deluge

From physical to virtual to cloud, I.T. organizations have adopted increasingly complex technologies as their enterprises demand greater agility. It’s left to I.T. leaders and their organizations to manage this complexity, keeping operating costs low while delivering on ever-increasing SLA expectations. With the rapid growth in unstructured data volumes, I.T. organizations are turning their attention
