Software Defined/Virtualized Infrastructure

Includes Software-Defined Infrastructure (compute, storage and networking), Virtual Infrastructure technologies (server virtualization, desktop virtualization, I/O virtualization), and the interplay between these technologies and traditional storage. Covers different types of Software-Defined Storage, such as Scale-out NAS, in depth.

Taneja Group has been at the forefront of assessing and characterizing virtualization and software-defined infrastructure technologies since they began to emerge in the early 2000’s. Virtualization has caused one of the most disruptive technology shifts in data center infrastructure in the last 15 years. While its basic principles may not be new, virtualization has never been so widespread, nor has it been applied to as many platforms as it is in today. Taneja Group analysts combine expert knowledge of server and storage virtualization with keen insight into their impact on all aspects of IT operations and management to give our clients the research and analysis required to take advantage of this “virtual evolution.” We focus on the interplay of server and client virtualization technologies with storage, and study the impact on performance, security and management of the IT infrastructure. Our virtualization practice covers all virtual infrastructure components: server virtualization/hypervisors, desktop/client virtualization, storage virtualization, and network and I/O virtualization.

Dunes Virtual Services Orchestrator

Today, server consolidation and utility computing are driving virtualization technologies into widespread adoption. Unfortunately, enterprises haven’t yet completely adapted to the dynamic nature of virtual infrastructures and encounter a number of issues with their traditional systems management approach. Unless organizations are willing to give up the very benefits for which they deployed virtualization, even the best traditional management approaches will continue to be insufficient and environments will continue to become less controlled as they become more virtualized. These challenges are calling for a new solution set that can manage enterprise-wide virtual infrastructure with an overarching management framework.

Storage Virtualization Finally Becoming a Reality

Storage virtualization became a much ballyhooed term in 2001. Back then, it was the hot technology – the savior and panacea for all storage management woes. More recently, it has been the goat. In fact, many vendors stopped using the V-word altogether to describe their products.
