      Which is cheaper: Containers or virtual machines?

      The emergence of application containers has come with questions about where this technology fits in the enterprise technology landscape, and more specifically how it compares to virtual machines.

      A new report from 451 Research has some provocative findings on just how advantageous containers could be, not just for developers and operators, but for the finance team too.

    2. Why Cisco, VMware SDN products don't always play nice together

      Why Cisco, VMware SDN products don't always play nice together

      Cisco's software-defined networking approach is capable of administering policies across switching hardware and data center applications that run on VMware's virtualization platform. But toss VMware's SDN security option into the mix, and Cisco's technology becomes less useful.

      VMware touts new technologies for managing containers and live migration of virtual machines

      VMware executives demonstrated new virtualization technologies designed to run in the data centers of the future at the company's annual VMworld conference.

      VMware showed off a new capability of moving a live, running virtual machine (VM) from one data center in California to another in Virginia. Executives also demonstrated how the company is working with containers, a rapidly emerging virtualization technology popularized by Docker.

    8. Why your NMS should be your first consideration, not your last

      Why your NMS should be your first consideration, not your last

      I often wonder why a network management system (NMS) is not given more consideration when purchasing networking equipment. We all know the value of switches. However, how to configure them is a personal preference as whether one uses a CLI, a web-based interface or a network wide configuration tool. The problem is that it’s quite cumbersome going from switch to switch to configure them, whereas an NMS not only solves that problem but provides so much more.

      Improving Downtime And Disaster Recovery With Virtualization

      If you know what cloud based computing and the Internet of Things are, you probably remember a time when the terms were eye-rolling buzzwords rather than concrete, tangible resources. You can likely recall the grayscale IBM commercials pushing the concepts in the mid-2000's when there was a marked effort to educate the world about the coming sea-change in how we connect devices and use this new, omnipresent connectivity to do more, better.

      How Virtualization Makes BYOD Better

      Educational IT leaders should not be “trying to do the same thing you’ve always done for less money,” but instead “doing something you can’t do any other way,” according to Doug Meade, the director of information technology at York County School Division (VA).

      The teachers seem to appreciate the change. Meade recently did a survey, and 74 percent of teachers said that the virtual desktop infrastructure makes their life easier. Perhaps more importantly, 65 percent said that VDI improves the way they teach.

    11. Embedding SDN in the Enterprise

      Embedding SDN in the Enterprise

      Most enterprises are wondering how to reap the benefits of SDN and how to embed it in their enterprise IT strategies. For starters, the challenge for most IT infrastructure organizations is that SDN is part of a broader automation push in the data center and beyond. That push crosses domains and must be linked to business problems.

      What is needed is simplicity in the physical enterprise networking stack, and effective virtualization, security, and effective and simple automation to streamline programmability as well as providing effective integration with (virtual) compute, networking, and storage for minimal complexity.

      At CES: Consumer products with IT implications

      LAS VEGAS – At International CES, it's easy to understand why IT managers are losing control of technology-buying decisions.

      CES is not a conference aimed at IT managers. The focus is on new electronic technologies for consumers, and many attendees are marketing managers and buyers.

      Q&A: Palo Alto Networks’ Nir Zuk Says Using Cisco Could Soon Get You Fired

      After quitting Juniper in 2005 — leaving behind millions in unvested stock options — Nir Zuk co-founded the fast growing network security firm Palo Alto Networks. Earlier this month, Zuk sat down with us in Manhattan to discuss security virtualization, cloud security, and why chief information security officers (CISOs) might soon rethink their dedication to Cisco.

      Network slowdowns are the biggest issue for IT, survey shows

      The single most common issue faced by the IT pros surveyed recently by Kelton Research is network slowdowns or outages, which outstripped application performance problems, availability and even the dreaded “unanticipated change request.”

      The study, commissioned by IT performance analysis vendor TeamQuest, tracked the opinions of more than 400 IT management professionals who work at companies with 1,000 or more employees.

      How automation could take your skills -- and your job

      Nicholas Carr's essay IT Doesn't Matter in the Harvard Business Review in 2003, and the later book, argued that IT is shifting to a service delivery model comparable to electric utilities. It produced debate and defensiveness among IT managers over the possibility that they were sliding to irrelevancy. It's a debate that has yet to be settled. 

      The Glass Cage, a new book by Nicholas Carr should give IT managers pause about the rush to automation.

      VMware calls new “hyper-converged” system a building block for software-defined data centers

      Hyper-converged infrastructure like EVO:RAIL is aiming at a lower tier market, such as mid-size enterprises that may not have bought into a converged infrastructure because of its higher price.

      Whereas a converged platform installation can take days and weeks to assemble, a hyper-converged system comes ready to use almost out of the box.
