Changing App Delivery Strategy? by @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

One of the more popular methods of dealing with not just with the explosion of devices but the growing challenge of dealing with growth of compute devices under management in general is virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). While VDI has been overshadowed of late by newer and shinier TLAs like SDN and IoT, it remains nonetheless a critical component of most organizations growth strategy. As the technology behind VDI has matured, many organizations have begun to reconsider their initial, early decisions to go with one technology over another. That's natural, as it often takes time after adopting early technologies to really understand the long term costs (TCO) and ability of that technology to scale along with the business. It's also natural because at some point, all solutions end up in the "end of life" category, which means no more vendor support. That's true of ... (more)

Multi-Hypervisor #Monitoring | @CloudExpo #DevOps #AI #DX #Virtualization

Simplifying the Monitoring of Multi-Hypervisor Infrastructures Over the years, many enterprises have achieved tremendous cost reductions and management simplicity through virtualizing their IT infrastructure. According to Gartner, while some firms have virtualized over 90% of their servers, on an average, most firms have over 75% of their servers in a virtualized infrastructure, indicating the growth and maturity of the x86 server virtualization market. VMware dominated the virtualization market for several years but organizations are now also adopting other hypervisors such as Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, Oracle VM Server, Red Had Virtualization, etc. Additionally, the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is an alternative for handling virtualization in Linux environments. And, the advent of hyper-converged infrastructures has introduced new hypervisors such... (more)

Snowmageddon…and Desktop Virtualization

Virtualization Track at Cloud Expo After a long and unseasonably snowy winter in the Southeastern U.S., my thoughts have now turned to Red Sox spring training, golfing with the kids and desktop virtualization.  Having spent most of my adult life in the Northeast, snow is a part of life and barely considered beyond the sidewalk shoveling and traffic delays.  Case in point: in Boston, it seems that you need two feet of snow before schools are canceled. Not so in the Southeast.  Twice in the past three years, schools have been canceled on the threat of snow – with barely a flake materializing in either case.  When the weather does hit – as it has repeatedly this winter – schools, businesses and even local government are disrupted.  Recently, the District of Columbia suffered almost a week of downtime due to a late-season blizzard. Most government agencies were runnin... (more)
